About Alliance for Natural Health International
The Alliance for Natural Health (ANH) International is an independent, non-governmental organisation established in 2002 that promotes and protects natural, sustainable and bio-compatible approaches to healthcare and disease prevention. Our approach is based on ‘good science’ and ‘good law’ and our core activities cover research, education and awareness-raising, campaigning and advocacy. At the core of ANH’s mission is a recognition that healthcare can only become sustainable if we become more successful at preventing chronic, autoimmune, degenerative and mental health diseases. Central to this process is empowering the individual to make and control his or her healthcare choices, developing and deploying more personalised approaches to monitoring health status, as well as treatment and prevention. We support approaches that work, as far as possible, with nature rather than against it.
ANH-Intl was founded by Robert Verkerk PhD, an internationally acclaimed expert in agricultural, environmental and health sustainability. Our international office is based in Dorking, UK, while our US team operate out of Atlanta, GA. We collaborate with a diverse cross-section of interests, including scientists, lawyers, medical doctors, other health professionals, politicians, companies and, above all, the public.
