Regaining Your Health Through Anthroposophical Medicine
Michael Evans, M.D., Iain Rodger
What I like best about Complete Healing is that it offers a beautiful presentation of the way anthroposophical medicine approaches different sorts of ailments and circumstances, as well as how this healing art understands the interweaving of spiritual-soul forces with those of the physical in sickness and health. In other words, this is an outstanding introduction to the world of anthroposophical medicine, one that offers the reader a much deeper and more practical understanding than has been generally available.
Anthroposophical medicine is seen as an extension of conventional medicine – a practice which fully utilizes standard practice but then offers more at the point where conventional limitations begin. In conventional medicine, diseases are analyzed in terms of cellular disturbances and drugs prescribed to counter physical symptoms. Yet, in order to understand what brings physical matter to life and imbues it with thoughts, feelings, and will, anthroposophical medicine adds the perspective of soul and spirit. The resulting therapeutic opportunities offer the possibility of genuine health rather than suppression of symptoms.
This is a terrific addition to the available literature on the nature of anthroposophic medicine – one which I found helped me understand not only anthroposophical medicine, but also many other streams of alternative therapy as well. Highly recommended!
