Founded in 1992 "Citizens for Health (or CFH), The Consumer Voice of the Natural Health Community, is one of the nation’s most respected, and powerful, consumer action groups dedicated to providing a voice and a platform for informed and effective health activism." [1] CFH joined the National Health Freedom Coalition and the Patient Privacy Coalition in 2007.


"1992: Citizens for Health (CFH) updated members hourly on the FDA’s raid of the clinic of Dr. Jonathan Wright, MD in Kent, Washington, on May 2. The effort galvanized citizens nationwide, producing so many faxes to the White House that it could not conduct business. CFH’s work resulted in a documentary that won the top prize at the New York Film Festival that year from among 12,000 submissions.

"1994: CFH led the successful effort to pass the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act (DSHEA). Sen. Orrin Hatch commented: “I want to cite the dedicated efforts of Citizens for Health, whose thousands of members have worked tirelessly and unselfishly to make this an informed and successful debate. There is no question in my mind that the work of this citizen army makes today’s victory possible.”...

"2010: CFH announces a partnership with Voice for HOPE (Healers Of Planet Earth). An expansion of the Campaign for Better Health, Voice for HOPE was created to bring together consumers, practitioners and producers of complementary, alternative and integrative health and wellness modalities to advocate effectively for an expanded role for these approaches in improving personal, family and community health and well-being."
