Christian monastery medicine has similar roots to traditional Chinese medicine or Ayurveda. It has a wide range of remedies from all areas of nature. They are seen like friends who want to help people for body and soul.
We find a simple and cheap naturopathy here - a kind of medicine for poor people - medicine of Jesus Christ himself.
Nevertheless, it is very effective and has been practiced in Christian monasteries around the world for many centuries.
With their unselfish work of charity, the monasteries have decisively shaped our German culture. I am deeply indebted to them. It is my wish to help you with the knowledge of old and new Naturopathy in the problems today. Welcome!
The deep dimension of merciful love
Monastery Medicine has a level that we cannot find in any other medicine: merciful love. This means: Nature is not just nature, but creation. It is shaped by a loving creator. It bears HIS signature of merciful love.
The divine Love (Caritas) is hidden in everything
It does everything:
Wonderful the world over the stars
And lovable in all living things,
Because it gave the kiss of peace
The king, our supreme Lord.
(Hildegard of Bingen, Songs)
Latin: Caritas habundat in omnia-De imis excellentissima super sidera -atque amantissima in omnia,-Quia summo regi osculum pacis dedit.
