Matthias Girke Internal Medicine

Foundations and therapeutic concepts of Anthroposophic Medicine

Matthias Girke’s book “Internal Medicine —
Foundations and therapeutic concepts of Anthroposophic Medicine”
is available in English. I would like to take this opportunity to comment
on this remarkable textbook. When I fi rst leafed through the original
German edition, the fact that nearly every topic was membered according
to the anthroposophic three-and four-foldedness seemed artifi cial.
Later, when teaching in Europe, South America, China and Taiwan I
suddenly found this book to be an invaluable source of inspiration, both
on how to convey a really holistic picture of what we are as human beings
and for therapeutic approaches. This book contributed to my understanding
of how, down to the very details of anatomy, physiology, pathology and
psychosomatics, each human organ really is human, and really is a small
human within the large human. When teaching from this perspective, one
can have the experience, and often the feedback, that one is able to bring
warmth and vibrant life to conventional medical teaching, especially if one
is able to creatively meditate on the contents of Matthias Girke’s book
(i.e. to think and feel the details in living relation to the whole). The book
is also extremely well referenced for each topic, be it acute and chronic
diseases, pain management, biographical issues and spirituality, how to
care of the dying in dignifi ed way, herbal, anthroposophic or conventional
