The most common personality types recognized by homeopathic practitioners are brought to life in this new book by an insightful physician and homeopath. These thirty-five typologies are described in light of common behaviours, primary emotional tendencies, internal conflicts, and spiritual issues that each of them face. This book is essential for serious students and practitioners of homeopathic medicine, and it will be of use as well to homeopathic patients or anyone interested in typology research.
Understanding these archetypal personalities enables us to better know ourselves, our family, and the people with whom we interact day-to-day.
