My first book is entitled “Complimentary and Alternative Medicine: Legal Boundaries and Regulatory Perspectives”.

Now, I know that’s a long title, but it’s a very rich book. It’s heavily footnoted and referenced, and it basically puts together all the law that I could find at the time about how alternative therapies are regulated in the United States.

This book, which was published by Johns Hopkins University Press, talks about licensing of practitioners, what gives the state the right to decide who can and cannot be licensed, how far that authority goes, the scope of practice, what practitioners like chiropractors, acupuncturists, massage therapists can and can’t do, the status of naturopath licensing, naturopathy in the United States.

It talks about therapies like homeopathic medicine, the development of homeopathy, the role of the American Medical Association in terms of the development of the legal framework in the United States, how the FDA regulates dietary supplements.

It talks about insurance reimbursement, malpractice liability, and a host of topics.

It’s a really terrific reference book for people who want to know the legal landscape for the field.


  • I would definitely recommend. I needed direction regarding the FDA and how the rules would affect my business. Responsive, accessible, and knowledgeable.
