In the last 200 years, a small number of homeopaths have achieved clinical results that are unprecedented in the entire history of medicine.
Hahnemann, Lippe, Bœnninghausen, Wells, Hering, Dunham, Guernsey, Nash, Wilson, Taylor, Yingling and others are just a few of these remarkable giants of medicine, the great homeopaths of the past. Their writings, their results and their clinical approach have been the focus of Dr. Andre Saine’s life’s work for more than 30 years and they are the focus of the resources available through the Canadian Academy of Homeopathy (CAH) and this website.
The objective of the Academy is to provide homeopathic training for health care professionals that provides a solid foundation in the principles of pure homeopathy as practiced by the great masters of the past.
The Canadian Academy of Homeopathy (CAH) is a homeopathic school founded in 1986 by a group of naturopathic physicians eager to provide training in homeopathy of the highest level and standards. Since that time, the Academy has offered four postgraduate fellowship programs in homeopathy of three years duration, a postgraduate residency program in homeopathy, a research program and a program of continuing homeopathic education for homeopaths around the world.
The resources on this site will provide practitioners with a foundation unparalleled in homeopathy, beginning with history and philosophy, then case taking, case analysis, repertorization, the prescription, follow-up and extensive comparative materia medica.
International Hahnemannian Study Group
IHSG: The International Hahnemannian Study Group challenges homeopaths practicing pure homeopathy to preserve and advance the practice of this magnificent system of medicine. This webinar series is targeted for advanced homeopaths seeking to master pure homeopathy while collaborating with their peers. Taught from 2009-present, IHSG was conceived as an international study group to increase the proficiency of homeopathic practitioners worldwide. Its focus is on improving the practice of homeopathy through study and discussion of numerous paper cases—some from old masters of homeopathy, some difficult cases submitted by students. Analysis is discussed at length to construct the “genius” of the case, repertorization is illustrated using MacRepertory, comparative materia medica is studied in detail (i.e., differential diagnosis of possible remedies for each case), as is potency and posology. Particular subjects or themes are addressed and which are supported by numerous relevant articles and books, or to aspects of the case that might make it difficult to resolve. Follow-ups on the live patients are done throughout the year so progress can be assessed and management of the cases over time can be illustrated. Homework is given and reviewed in the following meeting. Questions and answers from the students are included. Each webinar in the series was 2 hours in duration. Some years have 9 webinars, some have 3 webinars.
From 2015 forward, Dr. Saine focuses on treatment of patients with cancer—past successes by the “old masters” and current strategies. While realizing that not every practitioner wants to treat cancer patients, he reasons that if we learn about how to successfully treat cancer patients, those skills will lend themselves to the treatment of patients with any other diseases, because treating cancer patients is the most challenging of all.
