It is common practice for naturopaths, nutritionists and other non-licensed practitioners to collect your signature on a form such as this. By doing so you acknowledge and accept that we:
are not a substitute for advice from a qualified doctor;
that you consult your doctor before making any changes to your diet or exercise regime
do not warrant the accuracy of any information provided;
are not liable for any losses you may suffer by relying on our advice;
do not recommend any particular product;
are not a covered entity or a business associate of a covered entity under HIPAA.
By your signature below, and/or by instructing us to provide advice and services to you, you indicate your agreement to these terms.
We obtain a set of laboratory test results and provide you with a nutritional interpretation of those test results that you can use exclusively as an educational tool for personal health purposes.
Your doctor may use the same test results to diagnose and treat disease, but we do not do this. The information we provide is not intended to, cannot, and should not be expected to be a substitute for a personal consultation with your own qualified doctor. We do not accept any liability for any failure to identify any medical condition or disease; this is not the purpose of our services.
We may provide you with information relating to products that we believe might benefit you, but such information is not to be taken as an endorsement or recommendation. Some such products may not be available without a prescription, but we do not dispense or prescribe any prescription products. The information provided is intended for educational purposes only and should not be taken as professional medical advice or used as a substitute for medical care. We are not responsi- ble for any adverse affects or consequences that may result, either directly or indirectly, from that information.
We will make reasonable effort to protect the privacy of your medical information that is shared with us, including any medical test results.
However, that information is not protected by doctor-patient confidentiality nor is it governed by HIPAA.
Exclusion of Warranties
We will provide our services to you with reasonable care and skill. But we make no other warranty, express or implied, with respect to those services. All other warranties are excluded to the maximum extent permitted by law.
We make no warranty as to the accuracy of the laboratory test results we receive.
We make no warranty, expressed or implied, as to the quality or effectiveness of any diagnosis, apparatus, treatment or product. In no event will we be liable for any physical or mental injury, or any negative side effects, that may arise from the use of any such diagnosis, apparatus, treatment or product.
We believe that the information we provide, including that on our web sites, brochures, flyers and information packets, is accurate, but we cannot guarantee such accuracy. We therefore make no warranty as to the accuracy of that information, and it should not be relied upon as being correct, complete or accurate. It is your responsibility to verify such matters independently from primary sources of information and by taking specific professional advice.
