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.
Homeopathy has a very long history of using homeopathic remedies for prophylactic purposes. What can be treated under the principles of similarity can also be prevented. Hahnemann did his first experiment in homeoprophylaxis in 1799 during an epidemic of scarlet fever. In an extensive review of the literature on the results obtained by homeopathy in epidemics, the results obtained with homeoprophylaxis are as consistent and predictable as the therapeutic results of homeopathy.
However, homeoprophylaxis can be applied beyond the prevention of infectious diseases, as it can be applied to any situation that can be anticipated, such as physical trauma (e.g., surgery) or emotional difficult times (e.g., funerals). The greater the degree of similarity between the remedy and the genius epidemicus of the incidental disease or condition, the more successful will homeoprophylaxis be.
In this part of the course, we review the principles of posology and remedy selection for homeoprophylaxis.
