In chapter 12 (What’s a Constitution?), there were a couple of diagrams which could not be included in the audiobook of The Path To Cure. We’ve included them here, so you could reference them as you’re going through the audiobook and wanting to see what we’re talking about. There are 2 diagrams I used in this chapter which I sourced from The Dynamic Legacy by R. Verspoor and S. Decker. (You could call this the “textbook” or even “encyclopedia” of Heilkunst medicine, and study it in its entirety if you are interested in learning the philosophy of Heilkunst in much greater depth.)
This first diagram illustrates the 6 genotypes as organized by the idea of “upper” and “lower” pole.
The second diagram illustrates the effect of accumulated trauma or stress on the person, and how they may shift from a dominant healthy expression of their genotype, into a secondary type called the “Phenotype”. This is organized according to Dr. Wilhelm Reich’s distinction between pyscho-neurosis and stasis-neurosis.
These are some of the various models and thought forms we use to better understand the genotypes and phenotypes, so that we can more accurately diagnose a patient, and clearly “see” which genotype and or phenotype they fall into. We’ll be going into even more detail on how to identify each type in the next chapter.
