John Wesley wrote one of the bestselling medical texts of all-time.

Recommended Posts

Wesley was deeply convicted that God is concerned about our earthly life as well as our heavenly one. To that end, he wrote a medical text for the everyday person titled Primitive Physick.  The book discussed the contemporary knowledge about home health remedies and went through 32 editions, making it one of the most widely read books in England.

Many of Wesley’s suggestions for healthy living remain commonly confirmed. While some of his recommendations were hopeful thinking, the most significant portion of his philosophy was his conviction on continual observation to support hypotheses. Wesley bravely questioned modern doctors about how they sometimes treated humans like machines and that much of their “medicine” lacked merit and evidence to support its effectiveness.
