9781931112789: Andrew Taylor Still, 1828-1917

Andrew Taylor Still lost confidence and hope in the medical therapies of his day after three of his children died of meningitis in 1864. He became obsessed with finding the cause and the cure for disease. Still developed a philosophy of osteopathy that was holistic, naturalistic, and emphasized health rather than disease. He shunned drugs, and used a manipulative therapy designed to release the healing powers of nature. After years of thought, study, and experimentation, Still opened the American School of Osteopathy in 1892 in Kirksville, Missouri, far removed from the medical centers of traditional medicine. Author Carol Trowbridge tells us about Still's family, the communities he lived in, and the events that shaped him. She helps us understand this eccentric medical pioneer who was never fully accepted by his peers, but whose holistic methods are now considered the cutting edge of medicine today. He leaves a legacy of patient-centered care that impacts providers and patients around the world.

About the Author:

Carol Trowbridge has a degree in history from Drury University in Springfield, Missouri. She and her husband now reside in Hot Springs Village, Arkansas.

Review:

Trowbridge's book is a very interesting discussion of late-nineteenth-century evolutionary thought and the impact of this thought upon American medicine. Still certainly ranks as one of the least-known and original scientific thinkers of the late nineteenth century. --Pamela Riney-Kehrberg, Journal of the West

Carol Trowbridge illuminates how Still's peculiar therapeutic achievement was fully a product of its phrenological, mesmeric, Thomsonian, Eclectic, spiritualistic and, above all, Spencerian evolutionary times. --Roger Cooter, Medical History
