Philip Incao, MD, Anthroposophical Physician and Writer
Dr. Incao received his MD from Albert Einstein College of Medicine in 1966. Dissatisfied with the limitations of modern medicine, he spent two years in Europe studying anthroposophic medicine, which he has practiced since 1973, first in rural upstate New York, and for the last 7 years in Denver, Colorado.
Anthroposophic medicine was founded in the early 1920s by medical doctor Ita Wegman in collaboration with Rudolf Steiner, the founder of Waldorf education and anthroposophy. According to Dr. Incao, anthroposophic medicine, or, as he likes to call it, “Steiner holistic medicine,” is “…based on a marriage of our rational thinking with our deeper intuitive faculties to foster a growing understanding of the human spirit’s role in health and illness…”
Dr. Incao was the first president of the Physicians’ Association for Anthroposophic Medicine (PAAM) in the US. He lectures frequently nationwide, is a consultant to many Waldorf schools throughout the US. He is also a member of the advisory boards of Alive and Well AIDS Information Network in Los Angeles, the National Vaccine Information Center in Virginia, and the Foundation for Health Choice in Washington, DC.
