Anthroposophic Medicine

A unique specialty that is represented in the Denver Metro area is Anthroposophic Medicine. With the founding of Homeopathy by Samuel Hahnemann in the early 19th century, and of Anthroposophic Medicine by Rudolf Steiner in the early 20th century, Medicine has rediscovered some of its spiritual and holistic roots.

On one hand, Anthroposophic Medicine is thoroughly modern requiring its practitioners to be fully qualified MDs or DOs (Osteopaths) with a solid grounding in mainstream medicine. On the other hand, Anthroposophic Medicine seeks to change our modern view of the human being as a marvelous machine to a renewed holistic understanding of ourselves as fourfold beings: spirit, soul, life forces and our physical body.

The Anthroposophic physician or therapist strives to develop his or her intuitive grasp of the spiritual dynamic at work in every illness. The practitioner’s training to access insight that can serve the patient’s healing is not only a scientific endeavor, but an artistic and moral endeavor as well.

Today, Medicine is at a crossroads. Although it has successfully contributed to the diagnosis and treatment of disease for the last four decades, it has not been as successful in promoting healthy aging. The movement from disease-centered care to patient-centered care is provoking new questions relative to health and vitality across the lifespan.
