Oncology

 

In every stage of cancer, a variety of therapy or disease associated symptoms can occur, such as cancer fatigue and chemotherapy side effects, which can be effectively improved with anthroposophic medications and symptom-specific interdisciplinary treatment concepts.

Here we offer practical recommendations for medication and therapy.

It is important to ask how patients can become active co-creators on their path to healing. Meeting them on equal terms enables us to find appropriate forms of treatment for each individual disease situation.

Art therapy & anxiety: In her doctoral thesis published 2020, Annemarie Abbing investigated the effectiveness of art therapy in the treatment of anxiety. Outcomes of a randomised controlled trial (n=59) showed preliminary evidence of the effectiveness of art therapy: Three months of anthroposophic art therapy led to a significant reduction in the severity of anxiety symptoms in the women compared to waiting list treatment. The therapy also improved quality of life and various aspects of self-regulation. The second part of this PhD research focused on case report methodology and the development of tools for research within this field. The doctoral thesis is available at
