According to World Health Organization (1948) definition of health, “Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” From the Perspective of Western medicine, medical treatments beyond the comprehension by each national, traditional, regional emerging, mono-therapeutic, systematic, Western medical philosophy or by biochemical analysis which still cannot grasp are collectively known as Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM). According to surveys by New England Journal of Medicine, approx. 1/3 of the world’s population opts to receive naturopathic medicine treatments. Naturopathic medicine combines scientific evidence and clinical applications as well as the traditional medicine and culturally enriched body-mind-spirit therapy and diagnosis that shows respect to quality of life, carry out the principle that “prevention is better than cure” to protect the human body from the harmful side effects as the essential spirit.

USANMA was formerly known as the Alternative Medicine Clinic Center. It was founded in 1981 by a group of physicians of Chinese and Western medicine in San Francisco. After a couple of assemblies and adaptation to the trend of naturopathic medicine, it was established and registered in 2009 in accordance with the California Nonprofit Public Benefit Corporation Law. It aims to develop natural medicine, nurture relevant professionals and promote academic research and applications. Several committees have been established, including Expert Counseling Committee, Institute of Natural Medicine, Oriental Medicine Committee, Health Management Committee, Psychosomatic Medicine Committee, International Committee of Aromatherapy, Energy Medicine Committee, Iris Medicine Committee, and Periodicals and Professional Evaluation Committee. Our aims:

1. Promote the public’s recognition and need for the medical treatment outside of the mainstream medicine.
2. Protect the public from harm by establishing a certification system.
3. Consistently adhere to insistence of scientific support and introduce the research and training of basic application.
