The free, impartial wellness resource connecting you to the power of choice
Everything you wanted to
know about AHHA
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!

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.
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 (treasurer), Mira Dessy, NE (secretary), Herbert L. Jacobs, MD, FACOG, and Rachel Kahn, MS, CISSP, PMP, ISSMP.
AHHA’s prestigious Board of Advisors reflects world-renown physicians and integrative health practitioners, as well as other facets of healthcare:
Daniel G. Amen, MD, Rev. Rosalyn L. Bruyere, Deepak Chopra, MD, William Collinge, PhD, Alan Gaby, MD, Emmett Miller, MD, Paul Mittmen, ND, EdD, Christiane Northrup, MD, Donna A. Peters, PhD, RN, Judyth Reichenberg-Ullman, ND, DHANP, Bernard S. Siegel, MD, John Weeks, and Len Wisneski, MD.
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.
AHHA gratefully acknowledges that a number of individuals and organizations have chosen to make special donations in memory of individuals dear to them.
