Dr. André Saine discovered homeopathy while a student in 1976 and graduated in 1982 from the National College of Naturopathic Medicine in Portland, Oregon, with the objective to specialize in homeopathy.
Dr. Saine studied at first with the modern teachers of his time, however he quickly discovered that his real teachers, the ones from whom he learned the most, were the great masters of the past, and more particularly Lippe, Fincke and P. P. Wells. Studying their work inspired him to review all of Samuel Hahnemann’s writings and the ones of the great Hahnemannians, which helped him to deepen his understanding of the philosophy, art and science of genuine homeopathy. This dedication and in-depth study has earned him the reputation of a respected homeopathic scholar, which made him a much sought-after teacher and practitioner.
The main thrust of Dr. Saine’s clinical work is the treatment of patients with serious pathology, which he began during his internship in his father’s clinic in 1978. He showed over the years that it is relatively easy to deal with patients with the most serious infectious diseases, and with autoimmune diseases and mental diseases. He has recently pushed the limits of homeopathy by documenting phenomenal results in patients with Parkinson’s diseases, genetic diseases, such as cystic fibrosis and retinitis pigmentosa, Alzheimer’s disease and stage III and IV cancer.
In addition to his private practice in Montreal, he spent a great deal of time teaching and writing. He co-founded of the Canadian Academy of Homeopathy (CAH) in 1986 and has since been its Dean and main instructor. The CAH offers postgraduate programs for professionals looking to deepen their knowledge of genuine homeopathy. In 2005, Dr. Saine co-founded the Materia Medica Pura Project whose goal is to update the homeopathic materia medica and repertories for the first time since the monumental works of Constantine Hering and T.F. Allen over 130 years ago. He writes extensively and has been busy for many years writing two monumental works, namely, first, Lessons in Pure Homeopathy, From the Writings of Hahnemann's Best Student and Medicine Most Successful Practitioner, which overviews the practice of pure homeopathy and its evolution over the centuries since Hahnemann and through the work of Adolph Lippe; and second, by documenting the extraordinary results obtained by homeopathy in times of epidemics in The Weight of Evidence. Dr. Saine has confronted skeptics in public debates in universities on four occasions, which can all be viewed on the net.
