Description

In reaction to the harsh practices of regular physicians and also the sweating and purging regimens of Thomsonianism, Wooster Beach developed his own botanical medical system which evolved into medical eclecticism, one of the most popular sectarian movements of the 19th century. The three volume American practice of medicine was later abridged into a single volume, The family physician, and both titles passed through numerous editions.
