ECLECTIC MEDICIAL JOURNAL REPRINTS
The 11 available issues presented here are taken from the original Eclectic Medical Journal from 1849-1937. Each issue represents highlights of Eclectic physicians’ clinical knowledge, philosophy and politics. The best and most useful articles on botanicals and other pertinent issues have been chosen from these journals for particular years or on special subjects by Francis Brinker, N.D. Dr. Brinker also wrote the introductory “Periscope” columns for each issue, detailing historical aspects of Eclectic medicine in vol.1 and popular Eclectic botanicals in vol. 2. These journals were originally offered from 1995-1997 as a bi-monthly subscription but archived copies now are available for purchase in sets: Volume 1, issues 1-6 and Volume 2, issues 1-5. Each issue is 32 pages complete with predominantly original EMJ articles and some recent ads and commentary. These journals are being offered again because of their unique and timeless quality and the importance of rediscovering the American roots of naturopathic and botanical medicine.
