Integrating conventional medicine with a thorough understanding of the human being
At Weleda, we strive for a holistic approach to health and wellness. We build our knowledge and practice on the principles of anthroposophic medicine, a system of medicine founded in the early 1920’s, by philosopher Rudolf Steiner and medical doctor Ita Wegmann.
The therapy method of anthroposophic medicine is based on the balance between
four organisational principles: the physical level; life forces level, or
vitality; mental level and individual level or ego. The goal of therapy is to
restore the necessary equilibrium when these four principles are out of balance.
Anthroposophic medicine is an integrated system of medicine and does not fit
into the category of ‘alternative medicine’ - instead it builds on conventional
medical systems and practice.
Salutogenesis plays a significant role in holistic health. Health is not
considered to be static, but as a continuous process of development. This means
that everyone discovers their own health sources and decides for themselves what
needs to be done to maintain mental contentment and overall well-being.
Weleda completes the manufacturing process of our own medicinal products
in-house following distinctive principles based on three elements – the special
rhythmic process, the gradual heating process and our own unique handling of
metals and minerals.
