    Hi All,

    Can anyone tell me what a correct answer to the question, 'Can you name a principle of osteopathic medicine?'

    &

    Excuse my ignorance but what is the 'Gevitz' book?

    Thank you in advance.

    There are "four priniciples" of osteopathic medicine. They are:

    1. The human being is a dynamic unit of function.

    2. The body possesses self-regulatory mechanisms that are self-healing in nature.

    3. Structure and function are interrelated at all levels.

    4. Rational treatment is based on these principles.


    As for Gevitz, check the SDN bookstore for The D.O.'s: Osteopathic Medicine in America.

    These principles make perfect sense to me.
