American Holistic Health Association (AHHA)
Site Index Join
Endorsed by leading physicians and healthcare practitioners, the nonprofit American Holistic Health Association (AHHA) is unlike any other organization of its kind. Why? Because the information offered is free and impartial--and because we're supported by many contributors, not just one major sponsor. Which brings us full circle. Our contributors allow us to stay free and impartial, which enables us to stay true to our roots. Here's to your health!


bullet What is AHHA?
In 1989, the idea for AHHA came from the boards of two national holistic medical associations. They encourage healthcare physicians and practitioners to incorporate holistic principles into their practices, and saw the need for a new organization to educate the public on the power of the holistic approach. Suzan Walter and Michael Morton accepted their challenge and established AHHA (that's ah-ha!) to offer free information about health and wellness resources to help you better cope with an illness or disease, or to enhance your health. AHHA's focus is to help you integrate mind, body and spirit in the process. Resources include offerings in both conventional and alternative medicine.

bullet Board of Directors
The first AHHA Board of Directors decided to make all AHHA materials available at no charge. This plan was based on running the organization with volunteer staff, donated office space, and small contributions from people nationwide. We are honored to introduce these hardworking volunteers currently serving on our AHHA Board of Directors:
Suzan V. Walter, MBA (president), Gena E. Kadar, DC, CNS (secretary), Susan J. Negus, HHD (treasurer), Connie Bjerk, CGIT, RM, Herbert L. Jacobs, MD, FACOG, and H. Garrett Thompson, DC, PhD.

bullet Honored Donors
With nothing to "sell," AHHA has the unique opportunity to serve as a neutral clearinghouse to assist you in locating resources you need to enhance your health and well-being. Since the beginning, AHHA supporter contributions have made it possible for AHHA to be free and impartial in helping people to help themselves. Some individuals and organizations give more, over and above the standard contributor amounts to receive specific "member" benefits. We honor these donors who go above and beyond by providing additional gifts, thus expanding the outreach of this valuable organization.


What people are saying about AHHA:

"AHHA is a unique and invaluable voice in the ongoing search for a sane approach to health in America. AHHA reminds us that the real quest is for human wholeness, and not just for finding innovative ways to work with isolated problems or "parts" that make us up. The spirit of AHHA has been and always will be to champion the essential wholeness that makes us human beings, an emphasis that is sometimes lost in all the chatter about integrative medicine and complementary therapies. In the end, it is true wholeness that we all seek. Thank you AHHA for keeping the language of wholeness alive." - William Collinge, Ph.D.
