A holistic, therapeutic approach that focuses on human personality
The therapeutic process of anthroposophic medicine is based on the balance of
four organisational principles: the physical plane; life forces plane or
vitality; mental plane or psychological/emotional realm and individual plane or
ego. The aim of therapy is to restore equilibrium where these four principles
are out of balance.
However, interaction between these four planes results in three functional
systems – the nerve-sense system, the rhythmic system and the so-called
metabolic-limb system, which itself corresponds to a spiritual trinity in
This threefold system pervades the entire human organism and undergoes change
at different life-phases. Each time this happens the rhythmic system (‘located‘
between the nerve-sense and the metabolic-limb system) creates new equilibrium,
allowing harmonious interaction to continue. Any derailment of the ‘normal’
middle position leads to presentation of the diverse symptoms of an illness.
Anthroposophic medicine uses both conventional and anthroposophic medicinal products. The treatment approach and the choice of medicinal products and therapies are very specific to each individual, to bring about a process of development within the patient, reinforcing natural self-healing and restoring the balance of health. With the help of anthroposophic medicines, the body's self-healing process can be activated and the disturbed equilibrium can be brought back into the right balance. The healing process of the patient is strengthened.
Since it was first established nearly a century ago, anthroposophic medicine
has been a science-based medical system. Descriptive record and clinical
research are pillars of evidence for anthroposophic medical treatment.
As for all medicine, the methodological approach has changed over time,
moving on from anecdotal case reports and simply-designed retrospective studies
to the most sophisticated controlled study designs, including randomised
controlled trials. Today’s anthroposophic medicine uses the full spectrum of
study designs effectively and gathers well-controlled evidence to inform future
The safety of anthroposophic medicine treatments, anthroposophic pharmacology
and anthroposophic medicinal products is documented through the findings of
research studies, which prove that they are generally well tolerated. All
anthroposophic medicinal products are produced according to Good Manufacturing
The effectiveness of anthroposophic medicine is measured by whether it
reduces or alleviates physical or psychological complaints. However,
effectiveness of a treatment regime is shown in the sum of all the individual
desired effects. The decisive measure of effectiveness is in the response of the
organism – which is individual.
A number of studies show that anthroposophic treatment offers also cost
reduction in relation to conventional treatment. This is particularly relevant
in the case of chronic diseases, where the treatment period may be prolonged or
even life-long. Medical insurance policies show minimal medication costs. As a
consequence, in some countries medical insurance policies accept anthroposophic
treatment for cover because of its relatively low costs.
Today’s diverse society lives in a world of leveling in the marketplace, with
reduced variety and decreasingly personal individual service. Anthroposophic
concepts offer the basis for an ever more required medicine: differentiated,
holistic therapies that focus on the personality of people.
Integrated medicine system
Anthroposophy takes a holistic approach and uses both conventional and anthroposophic medicinal products.
Health is a continuous process
Salutogenesis as a science of health development focuses on factors that support human health, in contrast to factors that cause disease.
The processing of our pharmaceuticals complies with pharmacopoeias while our distinctive manufacturing rests on three essential elements.
