Does the art of medicine matter? Does it really help us become better doctors and improve results?
Dr. Claudia Welch explores how the effectiveness of a physician extends far beyond the ability to prescribe correct treatments, and how mastering the art of doctoring can make the medicine more effective.
The book draws on Eastern medical traditions and experience as well as on Western science. In it Dr. Welch examines how we know what we know, the mechanics of doctor-patient emotional contagion, and the degree to which a patient’s sensory experience in a medical office affects their experience of treatments delivered.
Dr. Welch also offers practical steps that doctors can take to cultivate more refined perceptive abilities and improve results.
Dr. Welch’s book will be essential reading for all health care practitioners interested in understanding the art of their practice and how it can enhance therapeutic outcomes. This includes doctors of Ayurveda, Chinese medicine, Naturopathy, as well as western medical professionals and other complementary health practitioners.
