"Therefore, because I ... do not give programmes and utopias, ... therefore I do not care at all that all my suggestions are carried out to the last detail. If at any point one will begin to work in a way that is in the spirit of what I have said today, then let not one stone of the content I have imparted be left upon another ..."

The presentation and content will be given in imaginative pictures / vignettes of the remedies that can stimulate your own imagination, inspiration and intuition in researching substances to enhance your capacity to prescribe them.

Your research assignments will focus upon building up substance imaginations that are a living picture of your relationship to that substance and not purely information gathered through normal reference material. The idea is that you work with contemplative inquiry and Goethean Phenomenology to arrive at an inner relationship to the substance.

This method is highly satisfying for a prescriber as it gives you the possibility to develop your own prescribing knowledge out of a truly Paracelsian impulse: “to read from the book of Nature” or as Goethe said: “to behold the substance”.

My work over these many years as an anthroposophically- inspired practitioner is to create substance stories that give insights into the true nature of a healing substance and build a profound insight into the spiritual nature of substances. My hope is that you as participants can groom this quality within yourselves.

The Webinars will be given on a monthly basis and last for 90 minutes. Recordings will be available for registered participants.

As this work is an intended path for endorsement, assignments will be essential and will need to be presented to me after each Webinar. As a Mentor, I will be available for personal support with any difficulties that you may encounter.

The cost per Webinar is $70 for qualified practitioners and $50 for students, payable as you go or as a full amount for the 9 Webinars at $600 (discounted) and $400 (discounted). Payment details will be given upon acceptance into the Training.

To register please contact Irmhild Kleinhenz, on and give me your information (why you wish to be an anthroposophic prescriber and some biography) and intention to participate in a written application. I will need your full professional details and profile if I have not received them from you.

Pharmacodynamics and Remedies 

By working intuitively, inspirationally and imaginatively with the gesture of each Kingdom in Nature we can find the indications for the use of healing substances. By learning to seek higher forces that lie hidden in the processes underlying the formation of mineral, plant and animal we can discover that they correspond to those that need to be stimulated in the patient and the processes are the same as the ‘homoeopathising’ activities within the human being. These aspects are essential in order to achieve a genuine understanding of the remedy and its curative effects. A deeper intuitive insight into the nature of the forces within the substance (substance story) must be schooled through intensive spiritual-scientific research. This opens up a huge panorama for looking into the inner dynamic of remedies and illnesses. Goethean observation is the method by which you can let the phenomena speak to you through an intuitive power of judgement and can lead you to the Signature of the Remedy.


a)     Mineral remedies and their trace elements have a significant influence on organic life. Metals are also included in this section and in particular the mirror preparations of metals, where the metallic-mercurial state of the metals is brought about and has specific indications for therapy. Some specialised Gem remedies will also be covered according to the indications given by Rudolf Steiner.


b)     The consonance of Plant remedies results from a dynamic complex or from the seasonal influences that the plant is subjected to (e.g. Mistletoe, Helleborus and the influence of cold and the seasons), or to the essential nature of the plant in its form or colour, or other phenomena.


c)     Animal remedies reflect how a substance arises or the state in which it is found. For instance, crab stones or oyster shell both contain calcium however have very different medicinal properties due to the way in which they are formed.


d)     Organ remedies have very specific indications for the support of different organs. These remedies promote the function of the corresponding organ and guide other curative actions to that particular organ, e.g. Medulla GI ArnicaD20. Specific organ related metals can also be included in which the metal is joined to its organ preparation to intensify the effect.  


e)     Vegetablised metals-minerals is a procedure to unlock specific forces needed for a weakened patient who is unable to overcome the strong metallic-mineral forces through their own activity.


f)      Compositions are substances mixed with certain binding agents to ‘cement’ the components together, so to speak. For instance, Equisteum as Solution Siliceae comp is composed of flint, sulphur and the salts of potassium, sodium and calcium. The principle is to imitate the way in which a plant unites various mineral substances so that the action shifts to the mineral aspect rather than the vegetable domain, which gives it a greater affinity for the innermost ego member of the human being. The substance created in this way contains the essence of the original substance like a ‘ripe seed’. For the human being this means that the seed of the ego organization can develop harmoniously between anabolism and catabolism, e.g. Solutio alkalina.


g)     Preparations from the three kingdoms can be combined with one another in order to normalise the supersensible forces and the members of the human organism as a whole.


h)     Type Remedies – Dorons are a distinct group of remedies that are used for the support of basic processes occurring in different organs. They are not directed at any disease but rather at primordial functions, e.g. Cardiodoron, Biodoron, Hepatodoron, Digestodoron, Renodoron and others. They reflect a three-foldness of the human being and overcome a certain antagonism between these different domains.


In classical homoeopathy, the choice of remedy is based upon a sum of individual symptoms. In Anthroposophical homoeopathy, the symptoms only serve to direct our attention to the relationships of the supersensible forces and the members of the human organism as a whole. In this way, the remedy is intended to normalize their interaction and not enforce change. The human being is left free to heal. For example, Arnica Betula comp is used for the treatment of cerebral sclerosis with the Plumbum mellitum treating the sclerotic processes, Arnica restores the functioning of the nervous system and Betula stimulates dissolution and excretion. Potentizing through rhythmical succession has a special place in the preparation of a substance as a remedy. The method allows for the interaction of cosmic and terrestrial forces. Different effects occur with definite rhythms and rising potencies and their action at some point actually is reversed, e.g. the effect of lead at higher potencies has an anti-sclerotic effect. Lower potencies address the metabolic limb organization, medium potencies the rhythmic organization and higher potencies the nerve sense organization. Frequency of dose and how the remedy is delivered is also very specific to the acute or chronic nature of the illness. Experimental proof can be gathered through the research by the Lili Kolisko Institute.
