Weleda was founded in 1921 to make Anthroposophic medicine medicines for the doctors.
Today this means that Weleda make 25,000 different medicines in tincture, drop, tablet, pillule, oil and ointment form.
Anthroposophic medicine is an extension to conventional medicine which developed from the work of Rudolf Steiner and Dr Ita Wegman.
Anthroposophic medicine is a holistic approach looking not just at the illness itself but extending to the human being as a whole. It aims to stimulate the natural healing forces of the individual and to bring mind, body and spirit into balance. Both medicines and therapies are used to achieve this.
