Overview

"Rudolf Steiner's model of a spiritualized medicine could hold the key for the next growth phase in Western medicine, if it is to survive, flourish, and become consistently and deeply therapeutic instead of merely palliative." -Richard Leviton, author of Imagination of Pentecost: Rudolf Steiner & Contemporary Spirituality Rudolf Steiner, a scientist by training, lectured and wrote, at different times on medical subjects and advised physicians on their work. His view of medicine was both unconventional and precise. He could describe-based on his highly developed powers of observation and his spiritual research-processes of health and disease that escape conventional methods of medical observation.

In all his lectures to doctors and in his explanations of anthroposophic medicine, Steiner emphasized that his medical concepts are not intended to replace conventional Western medicine, but to extend it; diagnosis and healing methods are expanded to include our soul and spirit.

In these broadly ranging talks, Steiner introduces fundamental principles of anthroposophically extended medicine. Some of the most remarkable insights that anthroposophy brings to medicine are contained in this volume. For example, Steiner points out that the heart is not a pump and that its motion is a consequence, not the cause, of rhythmic movements in human beings.

Topics include:
Health problems, such as hay fever, migraine, sclerosis, cancer, tuberculosis, typhoid, and childhood diseases The polarity between nerve and liver cells The functions of the spleen and the gallbladder The three basic processes of sensory-nervous system, rhythmic system, and metabolic-limb system Regenerative and degenerative processes The true nature of the nervous system Plus many suggestions for the use of minerals, plants, and artistic therapies in healing.
This Collected Works edition contains a new introduction, a chronology of Rudolf Steiner's life, and an index.
