American Holistic Medical Association was founded in 1978 to unite physicians
who practice holistic medicine. AHMA membership is open to licensed
medical doctors (MD's) and doctors of osteopathic medicine (DO's) from
every specialty and the medical students studying for those degrees.
AHMA "Doctor Finder" is a compiled list of physician members, and is
intended for use by the general public to allow them quick information
on AHMA member physicians. They can be reached at: http://www.holisticmedicine.org.
