Paracelsus: Man Is His Own Medicine (2010)

Only available in Canada, United States

Paracelsus was a sixteenth-century Swiss German Renaissance physician, botanist, alchemist, astrologer and general occultist. He founded the discipline of toxicology. He specialized in finding the healing qualities in plants, believing that the processes in nature paralleled those in the human body. He also stated that love was the first principle in healing.

In many ways, he was a pioneer in what we today would call holistic or integrative medicine. In this documentary, today’s medical practitioners describe ways in which they incorporate Paracelsus’s principles in their modern treatments.

Would like to know more about this. Not enough information on whether this is a school in Austria and/or branching out to the States or...? Is there a website? Love that they are re-incorporating Paracelsus' work on astrology. Medical Astrology is phenomenal and even better able -- in combination with Evolutionary Astrology -- to determine various dynamics and how to resolve health and even emotional/psychological issues that traditional medicine and traditional astrology seem to overlook or avoid. More, please! :-) Thank you for including this information! :-)
