Homeopaths view the body and mind as inseparable and determine correct treatments by discovering the “bodymind” type of each patient by viewing the entirety of physical and psychological symptoms. These groupings of bodymind symptom are homeopathic typologies with the sensitivity of a particular homeopathic medicine. Here “symptom” is most broadly defined as any sensation that is discomforting or that limits a person’s physical or psychological functions. Homeopaths also inquire into what factors, which they call “modalities,” seem to aggravate or ameliorate these sensations. In addition to prescribing on these factors, a homeopath may utilize information about the person’s body type, temperament and disposition, and behavioral tendencies to determine the appropriate medicine.
