Advanced Chronic Prescribing: Individual Topics
Taught by André Saine, D.C., N.D., F.C.A.H.


Advanced Chronic Prescribing is taught by André Saine, D.C., N.D., F.C.A.H., world-renowned leader in the field of homeopathy. Dr. Saine has a great enthusiasm for teaching and a wealth of clinical experience. These come together to create a uniquely dynamic yet scholarly course, with live case taking and real clinical examples that bring the material even further to life. Dr. Saine has amassed encyclopedic knowledge of the literature and history of homeopathy, based on more than twenty years of study of the original writings of its greatest practitioners. This course allows serious students and practitioners to master the specific tools necessary to practice homeopathy at a higher level under Dr. Saine’s expert guidance. It provides a solid foundation – beginning with history and philosophy – followed by case taking, case analysis, repertorization, the prescription, follow-up, and extensive comparative Materia Medica. The flexibility to study at home and at your own pace is an added, most welcome, benefit.

The entire Advanced Chronic Prescribing course (see full description) provides an impressive 500 hours of instruction, originally taught in a live class format in 18 four-day sessions, on professional-quality video. The overall objective of the series is to provide students with a clear, simplified, practical, and comprehensive approach to the principles and practices of homeopathy. At the completion of the course, students should be able to practice pure homeopathy and to achieve excellent results in clinical practice.

  • Rheumatology
    Course: 16 hours
    Homeopathy has an excellent record in the treatment of rheumatic patients, regardless of the etiology, in such conditions as infection or autoimmunity.  Paper cases of patients with rheumatic diseases, including rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, and polymyositis are reviewed, with special emphasis on what is most characteristic versus what is common, and differential Materia Medica.
  • Homeopathic Prophylaxis
    Course: 8 hours
    What can be treated under the principles of similarity can also be prevented. Hahnemann first successfully employed homeoprophylaxis in 1799 during an epidemic of scarlet fever with belladonna. Homeoprophylaxis can be applied beyond the prevention of infectious diseases, for example in anticipatory events such as physical trauma (e.g., surgery), or emotionally trying times (e.g., funerals). In this part of the course, we review the principles of posology and remedy selection in homeoprophylaxis.
  • Homeopathy in Surgery & Advanced First Aid
    Course: 30 hours

Praise for Advanced Chronic Prescribing by Past Students

I have never met such a learned man with such an ability to present complex material in a completely understandable way. I am very impressed by his teaching methods. I am now so inspired to practice homeopathy the 'right' way.
Super coordination of graph, notes and lecture.
