How AMHA Can Assist You in Paying for Integrative Medicine
Far too many people face a debilitating illness such as cancer, Lyme disease, or other conditions that require more energy than normal to fight and endure treatments. But unfortunately, they also face a need to maneuver through the complexities associated with a very complicated insurance and health system.

ACTION ALERT: Sweden Rejects Forced Vaccinations
Our children might be safest in... Sweden, a government bold enough to say "no" to Big Pharma. The Swedish government recently rejected proposals to both increase the number of vaccinations children receive and to mandate a vaccination schedule.
