Much has been written on the doctor-patient relationship in the Western scientific canon. While I do take some of these studies into consideration in this book, I mostly rely on Eastern thought-especially Ayurveda-to guide this exploration. I have made an effort to include important passages from Ayurvedic texts that pertain to the subjects
in this book, as well as directives from my guru to me, in order to ground this discussion in true authority. More about authority later.
For areas in which I have less experience, I have turned to the counsel and experience of practitioners with more extensive training and background. God willing, the insights and explorations in these pages will resonate with and support good medicine, or trigger conversations or insights of equal or greater value.
This book belongs in the library of every health care practitioner, and indeed any concerned individual, who wishes to cultivate good relationships with, and good influence on, all sentient beings, and our planet. - Dr. Robert Svoboda, BAMS
...Dr. Claudia Welch has developed the insight to see beyond the physical and to look for the subtle signs of pre-pathological conditions. The Practitioner can use the practical steps in this book to guide them beyond lab tests and towards results that are more effective. - Vasant Lad, BAMS, MASc, Ayurvedic physician and author of Ayurveda: Science of Self-Healing, Textbook of Ayurveda series and more
Sir William Osler, the Father of Western scientific medicine, said, 'the practice of medicine is an art, not a trade, a calling, not a business; a calling in which your heart will be exercised equally with your head.' Dr. Claudia Welch stands in this great tradition. Her book is a clarion call to the spiritual side of medicine, without which healing can never be complete. - Larry Dossey, MD, author of One Mind: How Our Individual Mind Is Part of a Greater Consciousness and Why It Matters
A Wise and compassionate medition on the art and science of holistic medicine. - Timothy McCall, MD, author of Yoga as Medicine, Co-editor of The Principles and Practice of Yoga in Health Care, and Co-director of The Simply Yoga Institute, Summil, NJ
