Obligatory Disclaimer My Way

exclamation pointFor your convenience, here is a really condensed version of the terms of use and legal bits for visiting my site.  It saves you from eye-ache reading all the fine print – which if you wished to, you will find links at the bottom of each page.

Here is my take on the obligatory disclaimer:  Throughout this site, you understand that I am sharing information that is interesting to me.  This information may be historical, anecdotal, based on medical research, be that traditional, folk or naturopathic medicine or personal experience.

I take sole responsibility for my life and I expect you to be over 18 and a thinking adult, that you too take full responsibility for your own decisions and will not turn over your precious health to anyone else but your own commitment to good health…whatever you believe that to be.

I am obliged by law to tell you that you must never think for yourself, self treat, nor have faith in experience based health knowledge that may predate modern medicine (which is only about 100 years old) by several thousands of years.  In other words, the law says that only a pharmaceutical industry sponsored medical schooled doctor can diagnose, use the word ‘cure’ or prescribe (pharma drugs, of course).  You are supposed to believe that all medical doctors are demi-gods and never err or misdiagnose and actually take the optional nutrition ‘course’ offered in their medical-pharma school.  (Oh, and there really is an Easter Bunny).

I am supposed also to tell you that you must seek advice from your doctor health professional.  Now I am telling you, you may interpret ‘health professional’ however you prefer.

Oh, one more thing:  all the information on this site is for educational purposes only (well, duhhhh) and is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or – get this – prevent disease.  That is right, if you prevent disease it means you won’t need pharma drugs and The Industry will be out your precious money.   Further, any information on my site has not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration in the US (nor will it because there is no ‘real’ money to be made in herbs or natural health care).  Somehow I am supposed to state all of this although I am not in the US, am European and my site is available for anyone on this globe.

And yes, it is true, I do not personally diagnose you, nor treat or cure you nor prescribe and you understand that as an adult with a functioning brain.  My site is about sharing information that is out there anyway in some form or language besides just English.  It is up to you what you do with that information.

Here’s wishing you good health through prevention and common sense.

 (Hmmm, I wonder if I broke the law with that one!)
