Letter from Doug Moore, Ph.D., NE Ohio Chapter Past-President
Welcome to the American Holistic Medical Association (AHMA) in Northeast Ohio! We are a group of doctors, licensed practitioners, students, and supporters who are all interested in holistic health. We embrace the principles of holistic medicine that integrate conventional and complementary therapies to promote optimal health for the whole person – body, mind, and spirit.

There is tremendous interest in holistic health throughout the NE region of Ohio. The major hospitals have integrated wellness programs, doctors are practicing acupuncture, and licensed practitioners from psychologists to massage therapists are integrating energy-based methods into their work. Based on the years of experience of our members and engaging networking events, we know that people are increasingly looking for practitioners who offer holistic health services. We are thrilled to support and promote this movement.

Over the past few years the AHMA NE Ohio chapter has sponsored a number of educational and networking opportunities for its members and the community. For example, we hosted a series of talks about the holistic heart, holistic brain, and holistic psychiatry. In addition, we co-sponsored a screening of the documentary, Forks Over Knives, which makes a well-researched and profound case for the health advantages of a plant-based diet.

In addition to continuing to offer educational opportunities, we are launching a new initiative to strengthen networking among the practitioners. A community forum is being designed for the website that will allow members to share information about their services, new programs, upcoming presentations, and recent publications.

You are invited to contact any of the board members for more information about AHMA in NE Ohio. Please sign our e-newsletter list so you can be informed of upcoming events. We hope to meet you at one of the upcoming meetings!
