THE ART OF HEALING

A production of Die Kunst des Heilens on behalf of the Medical Section at the Goetheanum in 2021. It figures:

Living roots - 100 years of anthroposophical medicine in Arlesheim 

Life from the beginning - paediatrics at the Filderklinik 

Outpatient care - Anthroposophical Medicine for all 

Seeing the whole person - art and exercise therapies 

Anthroposophical medicines - from nature to man 

Using the example of mistletoe - integrative Oncology 

Ways into the future - education and research in anthroposophical medicine

Anthroposophic Medicine has successfully integrated conventional and complementary healing methods in research, clinic and practice for 100 years. It is applied in all medical disciplines, practiced worldwide and has been verified by independent studies. It is a demonstrably effective art of healing, which perceives and treats each person as a unique being of body, soul and spirit. Just as many people basically want medicine to do.

"The Art of Healing" shows renowned doctors and therapists practicing their healing art on patients and lets them speak in interviews. Prominent voices from science, culture and politics round off the picture with external perspectives. The seven episodes show the origins and history of Anthroposophic Medicine, its current application in clinical and outpatient practice, the manufacturing of anthroposophic medicines, an in-depth presentation of mistletoe therapy in oncology, a portrayal of nursing and body therapies, and a segment on training/research. The result is a comprehensive portrait of a modern and sustainable approach to medicine for the 21st century.


ANTHROPOSOPHIC MEDICINE

What is the importance of the soul for illness and recovery? A lecture with Dr Matthias Girke  MD, transmitted on 21. March 2022 shared by Goetheanum TV.  Psychosomatics knows much about the link between the human soul and sickness, including biographical connections between trauma and later illness. In what way is the soul important for health? Medicine must be interested in the whole person: body, soul, and spirit. As a result, a human-oriented medicine is evolving. Please find English subtitle setting  at the bottom right of the screen.

Anthroposophic Medicine - A sustainable medicine? A lecture with Dr Georg Soldner MD, held on February 21, 2022 shared by Goetheanum TV. When we think about health, we want sustainable health. When we experience sickness, we wish for speedy recovery. Modern medicine often offers quick procedures: A caesarean section instead of a potentially long and painful birth, antibiotics for an infection, hormone replacement during the menopause and painkillers for back pain are just a small selection of the options for reducing suffering that have become almost everyday for us. Please find English subtitle setting  at the bottom right of the screen.

What in the world is Anthroposophic Medicine? an interview in 2021. 'Dr. Carly is joined by Dr. Adam Blanning. Dr. Blanning practices integrative and anthroposophic family medicine, and is president of the Anthroposophic Health Association in North America (AHA). In this episode, Dr. Blanning informs on the integrative medical approach of anthroposophic medicine. The two discuss letting your body engage dynamically with the environment, ripple effects of COVID-19 and offer some “warming” conversation for the winter'.

Warm up to fever was published in 2018 in Germany: the pediatrician Prof. Dr. David Martin answers the most important questions on the subject of fever and places the aspects of anthroposophic medicine on fever in the context of current fever research. For many years fever was regarded as a danger that should be strictly suppressed. Today this attitude is changing. Studies now clearly show that fever is a highly effective response of the body to fight viruses and bacteria.


ANTHROPOSOPHIC THERAPY

What is Bothmer® Movement?, Training sessions, and Bothmer Movement are from Bothmer® Movement.

An introduction to Fritz Von Bothmer who worked in the first Steiner Waldorf School. Martin explains how Bothmer Movement is a way of looking at human movement that takes into account that we are more than just physical bodies. Bothmer® Movement philosophy has informed many physiotherapists, occupational therapists and medical professionals in the understanding of human movement, and the interplay between the physical and psychological bodies of a person. Adding this understanding to an existing specialisation can bring a richer and deeper recovery experience for both practitioner and patient. 


What is Eurythmy Therapy, Eurythmy Therapy in Pain Management, Eurythmy Therapy in Neuro Rehabilitation and Helping Children Grow with Eurythmy Therapy were commissioned by the Eurythmy Therapy Association UK & Ireland and published in 2015.

Eurythmy therapy uses the medium of the sounds of speech and the tones of music as they manifest in movement. Each sound of speech has a corresponding form in movement, which is created by the upright human being, principally by means of their arms. The consonants manifest as mobile sculptural forms, vowels as geometric forms. In the same way, elements from music eurythmy (gestures for the notes of music and the intervals between them) can be reshaped into musical eurythmy therapy exercises. To find out more visit Eurythmy Therapy Associations website.

In the Rhythm of Life - 100 years of Eurythmy Therapy was published in 2021 and can be found on Eurythmy Therapy International website.


Community Pain Clinic, Discover Eurythmy, and Eurythmy Therapy at Kairos Rehabilitation were published in 2015-2016.

Kairos Rehabilitation concentrates on helping those who are suffering persistent pain and other hard to treat conditons, adults as well as children. Patients are encouraged and supported to play a more active role than usual in their recovery including steps in their personal development. Social, cultural and occupational opportunities add to the therapeutic effect. 


Anthroposophic Therapeutic Speech, Therapeutic Modelling, Therapeutic Painting, and Music and Singing Therapy were published in 2020 by the International Coordination of Anthroposophic Arts Therapies (ICAAT) to shows in appropriate brevity how patients, doctors and therapists value art therapy for itself.
