His clinical approach was based on the Thomsonian system of healing, which favored a simple vegetarian diet, hydrotherapy, homeopathy, physiotherapy, and botanical medicine. He had the distinction of being one of the busiest practitioners of any school of medicine during the 1930’s and 1940’s and was said to have a botanical repertoire of 750 herbs. Dr. Carroll’s perspective was very instructive to the early days of Naturopathic Medical practice and influenced the modern practice of botanical medicine in a myriad of ways. We discuss his clinical strategies and rationales and how many of them have become part of the modern practice of clinical herbalism.
