- Health and Wellness: The following legal terms also apply as to this Agreement:
- Non-medical Background: Each of our owners is not now, has never been, and does not claim to be a medical doctor, psychologist, psychiatrist, mental-health counselor, or drug and/or disease-treatment prescribing health care professional. All of the goods, services, information and/or materials that we are providing you under this Agreement are in no way connected to or dependent upon such person’s past or current licenses and/or certifications. The information in our programs, goods and/or services is based on our personal experiences and on the experiences of our past and current members and participants and is shared for general educational purposes only and for no other purpose.
- No Medical Advice: Our programs have produced above-average results, but they are not a quick-fix, a cure-all, or a substitute for sound medical advice. We strongly recommend you consult with a health care professional before embarking on this journey. Nothing claimed by us in our programs, nor on any of our websites, or in any of our materials, is intended to be medical advice, nor is it any way a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment. Nothing shared by us is intended as medical diagnosis, treatment or cure. Never disregard professional medical advice or delay in seeking medical advice because of something you have read or heard from us, on any of our websites, in any of our materials, or for any other reason. Whether or not you choose to obtain the consent of your medical doctor or other qualified health care provider and/or work with your physician or other qualified health care provider while using any information received from us, you still are agreeing to accept full responsibility for your own actions and inactions including those of your dependents.
- Consult Often with Your Medical Doctor or Health Care Professional: We are not mental health professionals, and anyone with a history of trauma should consult a mental health professional as you progress through our programs. Therefore, if you are currently taking any medications as prescribed by your doctor or health care professional, then your medications may need to be adjusted frequently; please consult with your doctor or health care professional. This is not a promise that your medications will change, just a possibility you may want to consider based on our past experience.
- Weight Loss Results Will Vary: No claims about weight loss should ever be considered typical because the average person on any weight loss program either never begins the program, doesn’t follow many or all of the steps of the program, or drops out of the program.
- No Professional Advice: The beneficial but low and no-cost information and advice shared on our site has been provided for general educational purposes only and for no other purpose. Nothing we provide for you here is intended to replace any form of competent professional advice. If you are in need of professional advice, including medical, mental or emotional health, legal, accounting or tax advice, or any other form of professional advice, then you should seek out a competent professional in that area who can ensure you are provided help that is specific to your particular situation and circumstances. To the extent our offerings are provided to support health, you agree and pledge to maintain full and sole responsibility for your own health and that of your dependents.
- No FDA Evaluation: As applicable, the advice shared on this site has not been evaluated by the US Food & Drug Administration (FDA). The products and methods mentioned or recommended on this site are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any illness or disease, nor are the products and methods intended to replace proper medical help.
