Anthroposophic Medicine: 
A comprehensive model for integrative medicine
at all levels of care

Anthroposophic Medicine brings deeper insights to the care of the whole human being.  It is practiced by conventionally-trained physicians and nurses who have undergone additional specialized training, learning to apply a broad array of effective natural medicines.  This whole-person approach also incorporates art, music, movement and massage therapies as elements of collaborative, multidisciplinary health care.  Founded in central Europe nearly a century ago, Anthroposophic Medicine is now integrated into acute-care hospitals, specialty treatment centers, and university teaching and research programs.  Here in the United States, Anthroposophic Medicine has been successfully integrated into centers for chronic-illness care and elder care, as well as a large variety of medical practices.  Trainings in anthroposophic Medicine are offered for health professionals in thirty-two countries on five continents. With deep roots and broad applications, Anthroposophic Medicine works to bring health and wholeness into modern life.
