How Science Transformed the Art of Medicine
Medical doctors don’t typically focus on the spiritual side of healing. Their concern is healing the body.

Sometimes the spirit needs mending so the physical aspects improve.

Physicians in olden days provided treatment of the body and soul. Treatment was more holistic than what’s taught in medical school today.

Compassion is needed in patient treatment. However, it can burn out a provider.

Listen as Dr. Rajeev Kurapati joins Dr. Holly Lucille to discuss the connection between mind and body in healing.
