BD Now! Special Episode 03.1 Glen Atkinson: How Steiner’s Medical Course Informs Steiner’s Agricultural Course

Glen Atkinson is the co-founder of ” The Biodynamic College: The ONLY College on the Planet, where the Whole of Dr Steiner’s “Agriculture Course” can be fully understood.” Using his insights into the accurate meaning of Steiner’s lectures, he has formulated very effective and easy-to-use  farm and garden remedies from Steiner’s BD Preps for decades,  In this series of lectures (this is part one), Glen works to clarify how parts of Steiner’s Agricultural Course have been misunderstood since Steiner’s time because modern students of BD did not have the understanding of Steiner’s medical insights (as attendees at the original lectures did have)  to perceive, let along understand, how Steiner was weaving referencse to the medical sensitivities into his agricultural lectures. To miss this point is to miss what Steiner was really telling farmers!

BD Now! 044 Dr Robin Miller “Healed: Health and Wellness in the 21st Century”

Today’s guest is INTEGRATIVE PHYSICIAN DR ROBIN MILLER. She is the AUTHOR, along with Dave Kahn, OF HEALED: Health and Wellness for the 21st Century Wisdom, Secrets and Fun from the Leading Edge.

Integrative medicine uses conventional medicine and natural medicine as needed to heal patients. Dr Miller makes more use of prescription medicine than other healers we’ve had on Biodynamics NOW! PODCAST but she does it in a personalized way. What makes this 21st century medicine is she is able to use relatively inexpensive genetic testing to tailor effective prescriptions for the individual’s constitution rather than use powerful drugs in a one-size-fits-all manner which often promotes side-effects more than it does healing.
