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.
The first two days consist of the study of emergency and acute cases: a child with convulsions, cases with gallstone colic, hernia, enteritis, complaints of menses, ovarian cysts pain, injuries, warts, acute rheumatism, ulcers – over 100 cases analyzed and reviewed to multiply each exposure to a great number of clinical situations requiring decision-making. We also spend almost a full day analyzing a case with late late stage meningitis with complete organ failure until complete recovery (with even the regrowth of necrotic fingers), to illustrate long-term case management; a live case is taken mid-week to illustrate: case taking, finding the genius of the case (case analysis), differentiating possible remedies, remedy selection and posology. Students work on the case for homework and analysis is done the following day.
These courses are offered to physicians and other primary contact health care practitioners and students of these disciplines. Note that the course ‘Essentials of Acute and Chronic Prescribing‘ is a pre-requisite to ‘Case Analysis and Case Management’ except for students of Dr. Saine or very experienced practitioners.
