A formation from the College of Strasbourg referred to the struggle towards the sects within the report

In its latest report, the Mission of Vigilance and the Fight against Sects (Miviludes) denounces the excesses of anthroposophy in education and medicine. The University of Strasbourg offers training in anthroposophic medicine, which the Mission sees as a result of the entryism of this school of thought.

The University of Strasbourg likes to stand out. The latest report by the Interministerial Mission for Vigilance and the Fight Against Sectarian Abnormal Developments (Miviludes) mentions offering training in anthroposophic medicine. In this activity report for the year 2021, Miviludes points out that the anthroposophical movement, a current of thought originating from German Romanticism, has outgrown 31 times in the field of youth education and medicine.

illness as a karmic consequence

In anthroposophic medicine, the report states: “Disease arises from a karmic destiny inseparable from the mistakes and sins committed by the patient in a previous life. The members of Miviludes then describe a series of mistakes made by anthroposophic doctors: treating bipolarity with homeopathy, cancer with injections of mistletoe extracts, etc.

The Miviludes activity report also refers to the denunciations of former anthroposophist Grégoire Perra (about whom Rue89 Strasbourg has written here and there), who explains that many anthroposophic doctors rely on their medical knowledge to better hide their opinions, not always in favor of the patient, according to the whistleblower. It is this strategy of entryism that worries Miviludes, who states on the subject:

“The University of Strasbourg has integrated anthroposophic medicine into its continuing education programme. It is therefore possible to take courses in anthroposophic medicine, particularly applied to oncology and rheumatology. The faculty’s website praises anthroposophic medicine on the grounds that it “proposes an extension of the university medicine on which it is based, which integrates the biological, psychological and spiritual levels of the human being into its approach”. »

Visible consequences during the health crisis

The consequences of these beliefs are not insignificant, the report continues:

“Miviludes has seen the increase in comments from particularly virulent anthroposophic doctors during the health crisis. Indeed, contrary to any vaccination campaign, anthroposophic doctors have made their mark in this crisis by declaring that Covid-19 is not the result of a virus but of an “Electrification of the Earth” caused by the deployment of 5G. In some German clinics, anthroposophic doctors have prescribed meteorite dust to cure Covid-19. »

In an interview with DNA, Professor Fabrice Berna of the University Hospitals of Strasbourg, member of the University College of Integrative and Complementary Medicine, believes that Miviludes is an amalgam:

“To point the finger at anthroposophic medicine by saying that it is ‘medicine with sectarian aberrations’ is amalgamation. It’s like saying that the medical use of meditation carries the risk of Buddhist recruitment or deviation! »

For Fabrice Berna, “it is the task of the university to teach complementary medicine critically”, but he regrets that these courses are hardly attended because they have been removed from the catalog of professional training. In 2018, the Strasbourg Medical School decided to continue teaching homeopathy, despite criticism of its findings, for the same reason.
