Eclectic Medical Association.
OF THE STATE OF TEXAS.
'The, Eclectic Practice is regular and scientific; none more so. Its doctrines are
essentially distinct from the dogmas inculcated by other medical teachers, and are
frequently if not purposely, misapprehended. We accept and follow the teachings of the
Fathers of Eclectic Medicine, and as the sa me have been enlarged and improved by
subsequent discoveries. Our .ecular designation is appropriate because Medical
Reform and Progression is based on Eclecticism in every department. We have advanced
and elevated the standard of practice, by establishing a more humane and scientific
method of treating the sick, discarding dangerous and noxious agents and providing
efficient and safer remedies instead. A great and comprehensive system has thus been
established on the basis of a wide and enlightened experience The credit is due the
American Eclectics for the discovery, proving and adopting ofmany new and important
remedies, chiefly from the indigenous medical plants of this country, and for the
application of scientific methods of extracting their active principles, thus rendering
the agents equally efficient ant more pleasant to the patient. The ablest physicians of
Europe import and prescribe these medicines, giving honorab'e acknowledgment to the
Eclectic physicians of America "
