The Mission of my practice is to promote optimal wellbeing by providing health care through an integrated approach, combining conventional and complementary therapies, which include Anthroposophic medicine, homeopathy, and salutogenesis.
The fulfillment of this mission is based on my beliefs: xxx
That wellbeing is a state of harmony in body,
mind, and spirit
That knowledge is the key to collaboration, responsible decision making, empowerment,
and growth in all areas of life
That the human body is an awesome living organism, a sacred temple that has an innate capacity for healing when we acquire the knowledge how to listen to its wisdom
Anybody who has this knowledge and is open
to change and has a positive attitude can heal him/herself
That each individual encounter is not arbitrary
but based on karmic laws and must be met with respect and compassion
That I commit schooling myself to become an instrument of the healing spirits who assist and guide me to find the optimal and most
appropriate way to help my patients
Peter Hinderberger, M.D.
I was born and raised in Switzerland, where I also attended medical school. Still in medical school I started a thesis in genetics (assessing the probability of potential carriers of hemophilia in female relatives of hemophiliacs using biochemical and genetic information). Working on this project, I realized the limitations of conventional medicine: conventional medicine based on chemistry, physics, and statistics can only reflect changes within a group of people; it does not take the individual's needs into consideration, which is essential in the practice of medicine.
In 1978 I did part of my internship at the Lukas Klinik in Arlesheim, Switzerland. The clinic specializes in cancer using Anthroposophic medicine (homeopathy, eurhythmy [dance therapy], rhythmic massage, art and color therapy based on Rudolf Steiner’s insights).
In 1979 I received my medical degree and in 1980 my Ph.D. from the University of Berne, Switzerland. For a short time, I worked for the health department of the city of Bern assessing the health and environment of the workers at the city's incinerator.
Between 1980/81 my wife and I traveled in India, Sri Lanka, and Southeast Asia where we worked in a Cambodian refugee camp. I worked as a surgeon for a German medical team.
In the fall of 1981 we came to the United States. After I took the national boards in San Francisco and did an internship in surgery in a University of Massachusetts affiliated hospital in Pittsfield, Massachusetts, I became fully licensed to practice medicine in Maryland.
In the fall of 1982 we returned to Switzerland, where I spent another six months taking an intensive course in Anthroposophic medicine and substituting for an Anthroposophic doctor in his busy general practice.
I took professional courses in homeopathy from the National Center for Homeopathy, and under master homeopaths George Vithoulkas and Jacque Imbrecht.
In the spring of 1984 I opened my practice at the Ruscombe Community Health Center in Baltimore.
