Lowans E. HEF President Ed Lowans to Brown asking for specifics about abuse.; 1988.
The executive members of non government organizations tend to be comparatively well off, and focused issues such as workplace accommodation, or having extensive testing paid for by OHIP. Lowans was not blind to the abuse issues, but chose a path of "next best step" instead of insisting that authorities address the most serious abuses immediately.

Lowans E. AEHA Ed Lowans protects cult of environmenal medicine from branch presidents.; 1990.
Branch presidents, close to the membership, were often frustrated by a national executive that was constantly manipulated or sabotaged by clinical ecologists. Most members did not see clinical ecologists for treatment, but the ecologists saw patients primarily as a political force to vouch for their whacko theories, and their dangerous and unethical practices. Those who tried to strike a balance ended up compromised. Eventually all but bona fide members of the cult of environmental medicine stayed in leadership positions in AEHA.

Eventually, everyone who did not subscribe to the arbitrary ideas and meddling of doctors of environmental medicine left elected positions with AEHA, and HEF was effectively disbanded.
