Our Motto

To learn the Truth. To Prove the Truth.

To Apply the Truth. To Spread the Truth.

Our Creed

The truth from all, for all, and to all, without regard to the creed of the individual.

Our Faith

  • That all disease will ultimately be subdued, in whole or in part, by remedial measures;
  • That failure to cure disease is due to our lack of knowledge;
  • That Therapeutic nihilism is the deadly foe to Therapeutic progress;
  • That the study of the clinical action of the single drug is the true method of drug study;
  • That each drug acts directly and invariably upon one or more exact conditions of disease, and must be so studied and known;
  • That with such knowledge perfected, we can immediately and successfully prescribe for conditions of disease, with which we have not previously met.
