Still, Andrew Taylor - The reason for disease
Type of spiritual experience
A description of the experience
The doctor of osteopathy has much to think about when he consults natural remedies, and how they are supplied and administered, and as disease is the effect of tardy deposits in some or all parts of the body, reason would bring us to a search for a solvent of such deposits, which hinder the natural motion of blood and other fluids in functional works, and with that solvent we are to keep the body pure from any substance that would check vital action.
