Anthroposophic Medicine is a study of the evolution of human wisdom as it relates to illness and healing, bringing the wisdom streams of ancient medicine and modern science together. Fundamental concepts about the human being from ancient healing traditions are carefully considered and studied, renewed with modern scientific thinking.
Anthroposophic physicians are fully licensed medical doctors who prescribe herbal and homeopathic preparations in addition to modern medical treatment when needed (for more information see paam.net). Because physiologic processes in the body are often mirrored in nature, we use plant, mineral, and animal remedies in order to reestablish healthy balance. We may also prescribe movement, artistic therapies, diet and lifestyle changes as part of a whole-patient approach.
