Eclectic /iˈklektik/ (adjective): Deriving ideas, style, or taste from a broad and diverse range of sources
Not so long ago there was a group of doctors in America that practiced Eclectic Medicine. They were physicians who employed whatever was found to be beneficial to their patients. Eclectic Medicine was formed in opposition to the toxic remedies used by standard doctors in the 19th and early 20th century. Eclectics didn’t care who discovered the remedy. They used botanicals, homeopathics, minerals and occasionally chemical medicines to bring balance to the body.
