Anthroposophic medicine is a holistic and human-centered approach to medicine originated in 1920’s by Ita Wegman MD and Rudolf Steiner PhD. It recognizes and uses modern medicine’s vast information and rigorous methodology. Then it goes further, adding knowledge of the laws of the living organism, the psyche, and the spirit. This knowledge is derived from a spiritual scientific methodology, which expands on the conventional scientific method. It requires—besides the ongoing professional, personal, and moral development required of every true physician—an active meditative life. This inner activity leads to a deepened capacity for apprehending the whole human being. Such a meditative journey is outlined by Rudolf Steiner. The result is an integrated image of the whole human being in illness and health. This makes possible a holistic yet rational approach to physiology, pathology, and therapy.

After being a primary care doctor for 40+ years, I was looking for a way to give continuity to my patients. I also wanted to bring anthroposophic medicine more widely to the world. My experience of working medically with substances from nature, and with medical concepts that recognize spiritual reality (anthroposophic medicine) has been filled with gems that could help so many people if only they knew about them.
SophiaMicha-elRemedies.com fulfills these wishes, and more.
I have many people to thank:
Sure enough, other people appeared with capacities I lacked.

Your healthcare provider is your essential advocate. All self-care requires sound judgment by the individual, as well as communication with his/her healthcare practitioner. Trained healthcare practitioners are best equipped to make accurate diagnoses based on current symptoms, put the diagnosis in the context of your overall health picture, and recommend appropriate testing or treatment from reliable sources. New information is continually available in healthcare, and a company’s manufacturing practices change. For these reasons, working with a practitioner provides optimal healthcare. This site is educational only. We presume you are working with a trained licensed healthcare provider.
