Osteopathy can be helpful in fighting infection. During the Flu pandemic of 1918, the death rate among infected patients was 5-6%. In contrast, among those patients treated by osteopathic physicians the death rate was only 0.25%.*

Osteopathy: Technical Definition from A.T. Still’s autobiography

Goldman-26

Osteopathy is that science which consists of such exact, exhaustive, and verifiable knowledge of the structure and functions of the human mechanism, anatomical, physiological, and psychological, including the chemistry and physics of its known elements, as has made discoverable certain organic laws and remedial resources, within the body itself, by which nature under the scientific treatment peculiar to osteopathic practice, apart from all ordinary methods of extraneous, artificial, or medicinal stimulation, and in harmonious accord with its own mechanical principles, molecular activities, and metabolic processes, may recover from displacements, disorganizations, derangements, and consequent disease, and regain its normal equilibrium of form and function in health and strength.
