Homeopathic Psychology by Philip M. Bailey M.D.
By Philip M. Bailey
Personality Profiles of the Major Constitutional Remedies
A book which could help bridge the gap between homeopathy and psychiatry. In depth description of thirty-five polychrests' personality profiles, case taking, and discussion of potencies and aggravations are presented in a easy to read style, in which Bailey's experience comes to the fore.
This is a most interesting book that combines psychology with homeopathy. Philip Bailey describes in depth the personality profiles of some 35 polychrests. The last pages of the book cover a mix of psychological astrology and homeopathy when he explores the elements and some polychrests. Bailey provides detailed information on 35 major types, giving insight on diagnosis, mental and emotional traits, and physical characteristics. His broad profiles of major constitutional remedies give the reader a good overall picture of the personality type and therefore ways of remembering facts about the archetype, by having a unifying theory for each remedy.
Dr. Bailey studied homeopathy at the Royal London Homeopathic Hospital and with George Vithoulkas. He has also studied gestalt therapy and has had personal experience of Jungian, Primal and breathwork therapies.
"This book gives insights into the basic nature of many important remedies. It is well-written and accurate. I recommend it to all serious students of homeopathy."
- Roger Morrison, M.D.

Dr. Baliey explains well our existing knowledge of the remedies and broadens our understanding of them, providing numerous highly original observations. His descriptions of the psychogenesis and psychodynamics of the remedies is engrossing."
