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 (under the paperback name) , The Four Qualities of Effective Physicians: Practical Ayurvedic Wisdom for Modern Physicians.
