While nutritional support can be an important compliment to my medical care, the client understands that a nutrition plan or coaching is not a substitute for the diagnosis, treatment, or care of disease by a medical provider and that he/she consult with their GP or specialist before starting any treatment for a medical condition.
The client understands that the nutrition plan / coaching will not be made by medical physicians and do not dispense medical advice, diagnose illness or disease, offer prescription drugs, surgery, or other conventional treatments.
The client understands that the nutritional therapist offers nutritional evaluations, nutritional supplementation, and lifestyle coaching. He/she further understands that the recommendations, discussion, sale of nutritional supplements, vitamins or minerals, only provided by the nutritional therapist pertain to the whole body concept of nutrition, and does not relate in the context of any specific ailment or condition.
The client understands that these assessments are intended as a guide to developing an appropriate overall health-supportive program for them, and to monitor their progress in achieving my goals. However, like all other health modalities, results are not guaranteed and there is no promise to cure. Accordingly, the client understands that all payment(s) for treatment(s) are final and no refunds will be issued. However, prorated fees for unused, prepaid treatments will be refunded if you wish to cancel the treatment. Products are only refundable if they are unopened and in original condition, including not past their expiration date.
The client understands that the nutritional therapist will keep therapy notes as a record of their work together. These notes document the topics that are discussed, interventions used, and treatment plan or any other considerations that may be helpful. Records will be stored in a secure location. Medical records, personal information and history divulged in session to the nutritional therapist will be kept strictly confidential unless the clients consents to sharing medical and nutritional information by way of a signed release.
The client understands that the nutritional supplements, vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients that have been recommended are traditionally considered safe in the practice of nutrition, however, some nutritional supplements, vitamins, minerals, food grade herbs, and other nutrients may be toxic in large doses. The client understands that some nutritional supplements, vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients may be inappropriate during pregnancy, and I will notify the nutritional therapist if I am or become pregnant.
