Welcome to the International Federation of Anthroposophic Medical Associations (IVAA)
Looking for a doctor?
Anthroposophic training expands conventional medical understanding by integrating physical, social and spiritual dimensions of health. Anthroposophic physicians address these elements in their practices, treating the whole individual. IVAA’s member organisations can help identify an anthroposophic doctor or care centre near you.
