The Swedish physician Ernst Westerlund (1839-1924) was known as The Miracle Doctor by his many patients. He lived in the small town of Enköping, 100 kilometers from Stockholm, and he became famous far beyond the borders of Sweden. He was a well educated surgeon and internist, but his fame spread due to a remarkable ability to help patients suffering from neuroses. He had a huge out-patient clinic and he worked all the time: “To rest, is to do something else!” was one of his many bon mots. He was appointed Doctor Honoris Causae at the universities of Lund and Uppsala. His funeral was a national event, and his name is still associated with a flower, a medical history museum, and an active society in the town of Enköping.
