GOAL: Our basic goal is to encourage people to become knowledgeable about and responsible for their own health, and to bring it to a personal optimum level. Nutritional therapy is designed to improve your health on a holistic basis, rather than to treat any specific disease or medical condition. A Nutritional Therapy Consultant is trained to evaluate your nutritional needs and make recommendations of dietary changes and nutritional supplements. A Nutritional Therapy Consultant is not trained to provide medical diagnoses, and no comment or recommendation should be construed as such. Since every human body is unique, we cannot guarantee any specific result from our programs.

HEALTH CONCERNS: If you suffer from a medical or pathological condition, you need to consult with an appropriate healthcare provider. A Nutritional Therapy Consultant is not a substitute for your family physician or other appropriate healthcare provider. A Nutritional Therapy Consultant is not a medical doctor, and as such is not trained nor licensed to diagnose or treat pathological conditions, illnesses, injuries, or diseases.

It is important that you contact your other healthcare providers and alert them to your use of nutritional supplements. Nutritional therapy may be a beneficial adjunct to more traditional care, and it may alter your need for medication, so it is important you keep your physician informed of changes in your nutritional program. If you are using any medications, you are required to alert your Nutritional Therapy Consultant to such use, and to discuss any potential interactions between medications and nutritional products with your pharmacist. If you have any physical or emotional reaction to nutritional therapy recommendations, please discontinue use immediately and contact your Nutritional Therapy Consultant.

COMMUNICATION: Every client has unique biochemistry, and therefore it is not possible to determine in advance exactly how your system will react to foods and supplements recommended. It is sometimes necessary to adjust your program as we proceed until your body can begin to properly accept recommendations suggested to correct the imbalances. It is your responsibility to do your part by following your nutrition recommendations, by exercising your body and mind sufficiently to bring your emotions into a positive balance, by eating a properly prepared whole foods diet, getting plenty of rest, and learning about nutrition. You must stay in contact with the Nutritional Therapy Consultant so that together we can monitor your progress and reactions, and determine the best course of action.
