Narrated by Katie Couric, “Fed Up” blows the lid off everything we thought we knew about food and exercise, revealing a 30-year campaign by the food industry - aided by the U.S. government - to mislead and confuse the American public. Exposing the hidden truths contributing to one of the largest health epidemics in history, the film follows a group of families battling to lead healthier lives-and reveals why the conventional wisdom of “exercise and eat right” is not ringing true for millions of people struggling with diabetes, childhood obesity and other serious conditions.  Including captivating interviews with the country’s leading experts, this vital information could change the way we eat forever.
“This generation will live shorter lives than their parents.”
“By 2050, one out of every three Americans will have diabetes.”

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!
