All right, guys. This is the “adulting” page, where we tip our hats to all the legal formalities that must be observed to keep this blog above-board. Is it boring? You bet. Do I wish it wasn’t necessary? Um, YEAH. But it is, so here we are.
(All policies/disclaimers on this page last updated 1/2/18.)
Short version: you’re safe here!
“Hey, Did You Know I Review Stuff?” Disclaimer: I’m an opinionated human being who believes in the scientific method. Ergo, I try things and then review them. Constantly. (Pretty critically, too, honestly.)
The FTC requires that I tell you:
- if I received a book/product/service I’m reviewing for free in exchange for review;
- if I am using affiliate links;
- if I was financially compensated for a post; and
- my honest opinion about the product/service.
Fine print aside, if I’m raving, it’s because I genuinely loved it – regardless of how I came by it. I’m not impressed, I’ll straight up tell you so – again, regardless of how I got it. (And, just as importantly, I’ll tell you why so you can decide for yourself if it might be a better fit for you or not.)
You can always trust that I will tell you the truth.
Finally, please note that although I will always be diligent in properly acknowledging books/services/products recently procured/featured here on the blog, I have received and reviewed a plethora of books over the years. Alongside the ones I received in exchange for review, a vertiable river of wonderful material has found its way to me via loans from friends, online reccomendations, my local library, gifts, and other diverse sources. I may not always be able to realiably or reasonably trace the provenance of a particular (older) book. This is simply a function of real life, not a reflection of deceit, evasion, or other malicious intent.
The “I Am Not A Doctor” Disclaimer: I am not a doctor – I don’t even play one on tv. I am a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner (NTP) . (But reading this blog does not constitute a therapist-client relationship, so I am in no legal capacity your NTP.) As an NTP, my goal is to encourage people to become knowledgeable about and responsible for their own health, and to bring it to a personal optimum level. This website exists as an extension of that goal and one modality through which I seek to accomplish it. HOWEVER:
- Nutritional therapy (NT) is not designed to treat any specific disease or medical condition. NTPs are not trained to provide medical diagnoses and no comment or recommendation on this blog should be construed as being a medical diagnosis.
- Every human being (and body) is unique. Neither I nor this blog make any specific guarantees as to your results should you choose to act on anything you read here. (AKA: Your Mileage May Vary!)
Please read & respond responsibly!
- Any and all information provided on this blog is intended to inform and empower you, but is NOT a substitute for professional medical advice. Your body and situation are unique and complex and I cannot speak to them. Do NOT use any information you find herein to diagnose or treat any condition you may have, and always consult with your primary health care provider(s) before acting on anything you find within these pages.
The “I Don’t Run The Interwebs (Or The World)” Disclaimer: This blog will, where appropriate, contain links to other blogs, news articles, books/authors, providers, and purveyers. All links will be provided in good faith for the purpose of supporting/ documenting information, crediting sources, or referring readers to other excellent resources on a given topic.
You know what they say about assuming…
This does not constitute wholesale endorsement of, nor any responsibility for, the content, availability, behavior, or any other aspect of these other sites or parties. (AKA: I want to give credit where it’s due and tell you when I find something shiny, but I don’t run the world or control anybody else. I also firmly believe you can like/approve of one aspect/product/service of an individual, company, or group without being sold on their whole kit-and-kaboodle… so please don’t make any assumptions beyond what I spell out in a given post!)
