Essentials of Acute and Chronic Prescribing
Taught by André Saine, D.C., N.D., F.C.A.H.

Essentials of Acute and Chronic Prescribing provides an excellent overview of the principles and practice of genuine homeopathy in acute and chronic prescribing, from a review of the place of homeopathy in medicine, the causes of disease and the different approaches for dealing with the causes of disease, to a methodical instruction on how to study the materia medica, in case taking and case analysis, the fundaments of prescription and how to conduct a follow-up.

Essentials can be taken before or after Advanced Chronic Prescribing course (ACP). If taken before, it will prepare practitioners to the more detailed approach of ADP. For instance, the principles of case taking is taught in 3 hours in Essentials but it is taught in 10 days in ADP, as in ADP case taking is reviewed questions by questions with explanation of the significance and interpretation in the language of the repertory of the most common responses of patients.

If Essentials is taken after ACP, it will provide an excellent review and summary, wrapping everything clearly together. It is ideally suited for practitioners wanting to achieve mastery in homeopathy. Live case-taking and case analysis vividly illustrate the material of this course.

Taught by Dr. Saine for 16 years at the NCH and described by many as an essential prerequisite for successful practice. Evaluations from 2009 rated this course 10/10 on all points by 100% of attendees, including a medical practitioner with 25 years of experience in homeopathy!

In this superb seminar, Dr. Saine assists the student in picking our what is particularly characteristic about the case. This then leads to a search of the pertinent reliable materia medicas to select the one remedy which fits the case best. Numerous case examples are given for this process and generally lesser used remedies are emphasized. This course is a must especially for those who have been practicing for a few years and struggle with difficult cases. I've been practicing for nearly 20 years, and I immediately found an enhancement of my prescribing skills the day I got back to the office!
