Organs and plants

 

Compiled by Richard L. Farr

The method of Eclectic Specific Medication was developed by John Milton Scudder, M.D. in the early 1870's and became the dominant approach to therapeutics by the Eclectic School of Medicine until the disappearance of Eclecticism from the medical scene in the 1940's. Eclectic Specific Medication is based upon the elective affinity (tropism) of medicinal substances for specific tissues and organs. In addition to knowing which tissues and

organs a particular herb has an elective affinity for, it is also necessary to know:

a) the specific symptoms of the tissue/organ calling for a particular herb

b) the specific symptoms of the individual's systemic reaction to imbalance of the tissue/organ involved.

Merely diagnosing the presence of a particular disease will not be sufficient to select the specific herbal medicine needed for the case: HOW the individual is expressing their reaction to that disease condition via their own unique specific symptoms, is the key to selecting the herbal corrective remedy (or remedies) needed by that individual at that particular stage of their imbalance. This was the method worked out by Dr. Scudder and his associates, such as John King, Finley Ellingwood, H.T. Webster, John Uri Lloyd, Eli Jones, and other investigators. Practical application of this method enabled the Eclectic School of Medicine to achieve highly successful results both in acute cases and in conditions of chronic ill-health. The following is a listing of the organ affinities of the botanical remedies thus precisioned by the Eclectic Specific Medicationists.
