Speaker: David Winston. We often turn to TCM or Ayurveda to add the essential concepts of energetics and differential diagnosis missing in western herbal practice. We actually have our own American systems of herbal practice that give us the ability to match herbs to the specifics of a patient’s constitution and symptom picture. These systems, known as Physiomedicalism and the Eclectic Practice of Medicine, developed in the 1820-30s and are an underexplored trove of highly useful clinical information. We review the origins, history and medical theories of these systems along with a detailed look at the Eclectic use of “specific medicines” for effectively treating challenging skin conditions.
