What is Anthroposophy?

"Steiner and his colleague, Ita Wegman, MD, taught how through inner development and careful observation, nurses, physicians and other healthcare professionals could care for patients in a manner more accurately assisting the whole being of the patient. "

Had two families in today with their kids .. because of their anthroposophic views, they choose not to immunize their kids.  I'm doing my best to understand their perspective.   Respect and trust are the cornerstones of a healthy relationship between physician and patient.
