Bad Steben, anthroposophic healing methods for spa guests
Anthroposophic medicine as an alternative
Dr Johannes Wilkens from Bad Steben is carrying out new forms of medical treatment. As a specialist in general medicine, he has been successfully applying homoeopathic methods for around 20 years as part of an anthroposophic therapy. In this way, Dr Wilkens wants to show that conventional medicine and homoeopathy can work hand in hand. For example, during his doctorate, he was able to prove that arnica can reduce complications during wound healing. The physician was even able to achieve improvements in the rehabilitation of stroke patients with homoeopathic treatment. Dr Wilkens was even distinguished with rewards for his work in the homoeopathic field.
Treating cancer and dementia with homoeopathy
Dr Wilkens is now even known in Europe thanks to his successful mistletoe therapy. He applies this healing method to cancer patients in particular. As a doctor of homoeopathic medicine, he assumes that plants such as the Christmas rose can also have positive effects on cancer. Experiments in the Berlin Charité showed that the Christmas rose works better than the usual chemotherapeutic agents. Wilkens explains the effectiveness of the Christmas rose with a natural phenomenon; because it blooms in winter, a season during which usually nothing can bloom or grow because of the cold. Thus, the Christmas rose has something in common with cancer - both arise at the wrong time in the wrong place. Dr Wilkens also sees positive predictions through homoeopathy for people with dementia, whose consciousness remains in a kind of hibernation.
