Steiner, along with Dr. Ita Wegman, got together with a team of dedicated scientists and doctors to determine just how they might use this philosophy to take care of their patients’ needs. They understood that a human body has a remarkable ability to heal itself, but sometimes it needs a little help. So they developed a personal approach to health care using natural ingredients that can holistically work with and support our own body’s healing tendencies.
They started by creating one of the world’s first Biodynamic® gardens to grow what they needed. Patients were healed, wellness and balance were restored to them, and never once was a synthetic chemical or lab-made preservative used in the process.
The company’s new name couldn’t have been more appropriate: Weleda, after the Celtic goddess of wisdom and healing.
Today they have offices and partnerships in more than 50 countries and yet despite their success, not a whole lot has changed. They still cultivate their own Biodynamic® gardens. Believing natural ingredients truly provide what a body needs to be vibrant, beautiful and well.
