Becoming the Medicine We Practice

Becoming the Medicine We Practice

Ancient Āyurvedic texts describe four qualities one must possess to become an effective physician: Excellence in theoretical knowledge, lots of practice, dexterity and purity. Dr. Welch explores some of the weird and interesting aspects of these qualities and how cultivating them can enhance our ability to have beneficial–or medicinal–effects on  each other, in this interview with Martin Combrink for the Ayurveda Summit. She  discusses topics of her book “How The Art of Medicine Makes The Science More Effective; Becoming the Medicine We Practice.”
