Homeopathic History

The gorgeous garden in the front yard drew me into the Annie Cooper Boyd House. Inside, the Sag Harbor Historical Society is displaying an eclectic collection of artifacts from the practice of 19th c. physician, Doctor Edgar Miles.

At a time when arsenic, mercury, copper, leeches and bloodletting were popular, a medical rebel named Dr. Edgar Miles broke with the “killer cures” and used plants and herbs to create his own compounds, said Deborah Anderson, a society trustee. via
It is always a pleasure to visit the Annie Cooper Boyd House.
