Thankful November

Thankful November – Doctoring

Collage of 2021 photos

It’s been several years since I first read “Medicine Men Extreme Appalachian Doctoring” written by Carolyn Jourdan. I can’t recall who suggested the book to me, but after I read it I contacted Jourdan about interviewing her for the blog. Somehow we never worked out the details and the interview never happened.

The book is full of “Hilarious, Heroic True Stories of Miracle Cures, Ghost Dogs & More…” To quote Jourdan “In addition to the stories from my own family, a dozen other Southern Appalachian Highland doctors graciously added their own most memorable medical moments to this anthology. This wide-ranging collection of jewels covers seventy-five years of medicine, from 1930 to 2005. Each of the doctors in this book practiced for over fifty years.”

I’m giving a used copy of the book away as part of my Thankful November series. I really enjoyed the stories and I think you will too. To be entered in the giveaway leave a comment on this post. *Giveaway ends November 21, 2021.


Long time Blind Pig reader Larry (AWGRIFF) and his lovely wife Anita lost their only son on Veteran’s Day to a heart attack. He was only 42 years old. Please remember their family in your prayers.

    My grandmother treated a lot of neighbors as well as her family. She even sewed cuts in many men and a few women. She wouldn’t sew up cuts in children but sent them to the town doctor so the site could be deadened first. She treated many cuts on me and even treated a broken bone in my hand and a broken finger, Both work fine some 75 years later.

    So sorry to learn of the death of AWGriff & Anita’s son. We are holding them up in prayer. May God wrap his loving arms around the whole family and comfort them as only He can . May they find peace that passes all understanding in this time of grief and heartache.

    I have studied alternative medicine for many years. I would rather use herbs and natural means for my ailments. In fact, I have successfully driven a diagnosis of both diabetes and hemochromatosis (too much iron in the body) out of my life by finding the correct combination of herbs, diet and other natural means to mitigate the diseases and safely put them in remission. My doctor is amazed. She told me whatever I was doing to keep doing it because it was definitely working. I don’t like to be dependent on modern medicine. I was always told by my elders that for every disease we suffer, God has a remedy in nature or through prayer. I employ both. I continue to build my green pharmacy and bathe it all in prayer.

    You have made the association with jewelweed and poison ivy. Where one grows, the other is usually nearby. I take that as God has placed it there for when we need it. This is only one example. I have found many more in my years of study.

    I am wondering of these mountain/country docs went to medical school and if so, did they also use natural remedies? I read every book on this subject I can find, but have not read this one.

    I would love to read this book because “country doctoring” without a degree of course is my passion.

    I enjoy your posts. they fit most of Southern Ohio where I live. Sorry for the couples loss of their son, no parent should have to bury their child. One of my grandmother’s favorite sayings was “I’ve got a mind to…”; meaning she intended to do something. And although she never finished grade school – she was the wisest person I ever knew. I would like to read the book you mention, the “old ways” still work today.

    So sorry to hear of the loss of their son, this is my first day of receiving this letter but it’s like reading from an old friend! My family are from Jackson and Swain counties although I was the only one of nine children not born in these GLORIOUS Mountains I’m the only one that returned, I now live in the metropolis of Clyde, NC. I have listened and watched your talented daughters grow and make beautiful music for a few years and really enjoyed their music!!
    The only thing I can think is I just wish I had found and joined this letter sooner, and I also would ABSOLUTELY love to win a book I don’t walk very good and don’t really care for TV so I read a lot, and watch several thing’s on YouTube that I really enjoy about mountain life and farming.

    When we lived in the Foothills, we had the best doctor I’ve ever had. They actually had their own pharmacy in front of his doctor’s office (pills in large brown bottles lined the shelves). He could also give the best shot…quick and done…you never felt it. He actually made housecalls, too. Now the doc’s wouldn’t think of doing that. He also knew many folk remedies that would help. He was amazing. I am so grateful he was a part of our lives! Thanks for your work, Tipper, and for reminding us of how blessed we were and are! Happy Thanksgiving to your whole family!

    I mentioned in this blog a long time ago that my Appalachian elders doctored everything with moonshine and turpentine ! I forgot that my papaw used onions a lot…cooked them, wrapped in a cloth, laid on the chest for croup or bronchitis….he ate them daily ,too, along with apples ….lived to 89. I think we must have been tougher then. We did not seem to get as sick as folks do now. We ate better…we walked everywhere we went. Of course kids got hurt but going to the doctor was rare. I went only once I remember…when I woke with a bad swollen eyelid and mommy somehow got me to a doctor that said it was a spider bite. I still react like that to insect bites. I remember putting spider web in a cut to stop the bleeding…tobacco juice on a bee sting…butter and salt used on mosquito and other insect bites….warmed sweet oil dropped in a child earache. My maternal papaw was a miracle man….was born with powers….could draw out burn and stop bleeding by saying a Bible verse…could cure thrush in a baby’s mouth by breathing his breath into that baby. My paternal mamaw could buy your wart away.
    A century ago , my own great granny learned to read and write at age 50 so she could pass the state test to be a midwife in our Va…Ky mountain area.. ..she was said to carry a knife in her bag to slip under the bed of the woman in labor then whisper to her….I’m here and I have cut your pain in half now. Great grandma Nancy Emmeline Mc Guinness Collins own signature is on my mommy’s birth certificate.

    I want to first send my heartfelt sorrow to AWGRIFF and his family concerning their great loss of their son. No parent should have to suffer that I think we would all agree. As a RN who’d like to burn my degree, let me tell each one of you if you cannot doctor it or folk cure what ails you, you’re as good as a goner! The days of caring in medicine have been over for at least 30 years. I’ve picked up more and better remedies than I ever learned in Rockefeller medicine working for BIG companies. I’d recommend reading and learning all you can about doctoring of oneself and family. Your very life depends on it. I’d also like to plug for TESLA BIOHEALERS. If you’re interested, look it up. There’s too little time to explain this here… You may just learn some stuff. Gods love and sense to all. We surely need it. And never underestimate THE GREAT PHYSICIAN…

    I would find the book very interesting. I have often thought of the old company doctors growing up. They not only had a practice, but had to make visits to homes sometimes late at night. One that comes to mind is old Dox Bennett. He was a thin man who minced no words. In the process of doing genealogy I find his name on numerous death certificates. I wonder how he ever had any family time, as he seem to have never ending hours and had hastily applied his signature to many documents. Another was Dr. Penn who delivered so many babies in Wyoming County including me and many cousins.

    My heart goes out to AWGRIFF. My prayers and thoughts are with Larry and Anita. We lost one of our dear young nieces recently, and it will change the entire season for the family. I am assured the Lord is in charge and will help everybody through all these losses.

    AW & Anita, I pray you will experience this in a very personal way. 2CO1:03 Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; 2CO1:04 Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.

    I think the ‘old time’ doctors tried to treat the whole person and patients felt the difference without any words. I expect that’s what Jourdan’s book shows. It is, I think, a better way than hundreds of specialists. I expect they feel it themselves.

    By the way, Tipper, do folks up your way use the expression “I’m of a great mind to”? I thought of tht yesterday for some reason. I’m of a great mind to send you some garlic chive seed, though I’m a bit doubtful you would care much for them.

    My great grandfather was a school teacher in Red House West Virginia in the 1920s. Then, moved to Ross Co Ohio. There weren’t any teaching jobs and he wasn’t a good farmer, so he found a book on veterinarian science and became an animal doctor for the community.

    As a licensed Chiropractor, my mother, Alyce, practiced holistic medicine all my young life. Often, she would gather dandelions to make a delicious salad. I wonder if this green is familiar to you? Mom delivered many babies in rural Vermont and taught mothers how to observe good hygiene and eating habits for their families, Mom lived to be 97 years old. She left me with a keen appreciation for the power of natural remedies. I would love to own the book you are offering. PS. I am 82 years old and in fine health!

    My great grandfather was a country doctor in Kentucky. Everybody loved him as he tried his hardest to care for his patients, first on horseback and later in a Model T Ford. Having eight children himself, he would sometimes take garden produce or eggs as payment. I still have some of the furniture that he used in his office. Highly revered in their church, I have never heard anybody speak anything but wonderful things of my great grandparents. They left a wonderful legacy to their family.

    This sounds like a very interesting book! It reminded me of the book “Christy” and the local mountain doctor/midwife, Granny Barclay, who helped deliver a baby. She pulled the baby’s hand to the opposite side leg and said it was “liver-growed” and that it wouldn’t live long. I’ve wondered about that for years and wondered what in the world was wrong with the baby and what it meant. If you have any insight on this mystery, I would be thankful if you shared the information. It’s fascinating to read about mountain cures and ailments and how people back then practiced medicine when there were no doctors around.

    The book sounds interesting.
    We will pray for the family that lost their son. We can empathize as we lost our son 7 years ago. God comfort them…

    This book sounds great! If I don’t win it, I’ll have to look it up. I’m very interested in Appalachian medicine. My great granny was well known for her Cherokee Granny Magic.
    Praying for the family you named!

    I am praying for Larry (Awgriff) and his wife, Anita. I am so sorry to hear their sad news. My heart is with them.

    Thank you for your giveaways, Tipper! You are much appreciated. Please don’t enter me in the contest, but I think this book sounds interesting. All of the books have, for that matter, that you have been giving away this Thankful November.

    Again- my heartfelt prayers and condolences are offered to Awgriff Larry and Anita. I pray for God’s peace and comfort for them during this very difficult season in their lives.

    Donna. : )
