Fever A Child's Best Friend
Thomas Cowan, MD

Thomas Cowan, MD: Fever A Child's Best Friend
Modern medicine tries to suppress fever in children, but these efforts interrupt the child's own mechanism for stimulating the immune system. Many studies show that allowing fever to run its course actually aids children in speedier recoveries. Critics of fever suppression argue that without childhood fevers, children are more prone to cancer later in life.

Thomas Cowan, MD discovered the work of the two men who would have the most influence on his career while teaching gardening as a Peace Corps volunteer in Swaziland, South Africa. He read Nutrition and Physical Degeneration by Weston Price, and a fellow volunteer explained the arcane principles of Rudolf Steiner’s™ biodynamic agriculture. These events inspired him to pursue a medical degree. Tom graduated from Michigan State University College of Human Medicine in 1984. After his residency in Family Practice at Johnson City Hospital in Johnson City, New York, he set up an anthroposophical medical practice in Peterborough, New Hampshire. Dr. Cowan relocated to San Francisco in 2003.

Dr. Cowan has served as vice president of the Physicians Association for Anthroposophical Medicine and is a founding board member of the Weston A. Price Foundation. He is the principal author of the book, The Fourfold Path to Healing, which was published in 2004 by New Trends Publishing. He writes the “Ask the Doctor” column in Wise Traditions in Food, Farming and the Healing Arts, the Foundation’s™ quarterly magazine, and has lectured throughout the United States and Canada. He has three grown children and currently practices medicine in San Francisco where he resides with his wife, Lynda Smith Cowan.

Dr. Cowan sees patients at his office in San Francisco, does long-distance consults by telephone, and is accepting new patients. He also gives lectures and presentations across the country
(public appearances).

Read more about Tom Cowan’s background in the introduction to his recent book, The Fourfold Path to Healing, written with co-authors Sally Fallon and Jaimen McMillan.
