- Eclectic Materia Medica
"Eclectic Materia Medica" is a
materia medicawritten by the eclectic medicinedoctor Harvey Wickes Felter(co-author with John Uri Lloydof King's American Dispensatory.) This was the last, articulate, but in the end, futile attempt to stem the tide of Standard Practice Medicine, the antithesis of the model of the rural primary care "vitalist" physician that was the basis for Eclectic medicine.
