With almost 9,000 people killed during the earthquakes in April and May, another 23,000 suffering injuries, hundreds of thousands left homeless when entire villages collapsed, and many sacred sites destroyed, no one in this country of approximately 28 million has been left untouched by the disaster.

The American Society of Acupuncturists is a 501(c)6 (pending), not-for-profit collaboration among state based, acupuncturist professional associations. The governance of the ASA involves a Board of Directors that sets strategy to policy developed by the CSA, which is now housed within the ASA. At the time of this official launch, we have 24 dues-paying state association members representing more than 3000 acupuncturist professionals.

While teaching ethics classes, I often encounter licensed acupuncturists who are surprised that our use of herbs and supplements has a specific section in the material. It is often an aspect within ethics that clinicians don't think of in practice. With that in mind, the focus of this article is about ethical considerations related to the herb and supplement side of our practices.
