Why do children get ill? – a homeopathic and anthroposophical view of childhood diseases
How to nurture health and human potential with Dr Michaela Glöckler
The Greek philosopher Plato already recognised that compared to the perfect animal, humans are deficient beings who need to learn and consciously develop. But how must the environment be equipped so that physical and mental maturation can take place in a healthy way?
Anthroposophic medicine and homeopathy have a great deal in common in terms of approach, diagnosis and application.
Michaela will explore and discuss life processes as well as the mental and spiritual laws that cause growth, development, ageing and death. The value of this approach not only enables new perspectives on diagnostics and therapy, but also provides a foundation for rational primary prevention.
It is common knowledge that upbringing and education not only serve to impart knowledge. These factors are also known to have a fundamental influence on the development of the personality, habits and character of a child.
Later in the day Homeopath Dr Yubraj Sharma will go on to explore the anthroposophical approach alongside the use of homeopathy and herbs to overcome childhood illnesses and diseases.
