What are anthroposophical health studies?

For me, Robert Gorter, MD, PhD, it is a great pleasure to introduce you to the Anthroposophical Health Studies. When I was a medical student, I always felt that there was a lack of understanding of health. At the Medical School of the University of Amsterdam, we were taught a lot about illness and pathology, but very little about health and the prevention of illness. Thus, I started looking around to see whether there were alternatives to what I was learning through lectures and books.

This is how I came across many traditions and disciplines in medicine: Traditional Chinese Medicine, Homeopathy, Herbal Medicine, Chiropractice etc. I studied them all and received accreditation or license in most of them. But nothing satisfied me completely as a physician, trained in academical thinking. Then, I found Anthroposophical Medicine. Here, I found what I was really looking for: a form of holistic medicine, which included all of conventional (western) medicine and a very spiritual and practical approach to health and disease. — Robert Gorter, MD, PhD
