All Beings Disclaimer

Before you choose to use the services of a Nutritional Therapy Consultant like those at All Beings, PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION FULLY AND CAREFULLY

The Goal of our Practice

Our goal at All Beings is to encourage you to become knowledgeable about and responsible for your own health (and your pet's health if applicable), driving towards optimal function in as natural a way as possible. Nutritional therapy is designed to improve your health, but is not designed to treat any specific disease or medical condition. Reaching the goal of optimum health, absent other non-nutritional complicating factors, requires a sincere commitment from you, possible lifestyle changes, and a positive attitude. A Nutritional Therapist is trained to evaluate you (or your pet's) nutritional needs and make recommendations of dietary and lifestyle changes plus potentially nutritional supplements. A Nutritional Therapist is not trained to provide medical diagnoses, and no comment or recommendation should be construed as being a medical diagnosis. And since every being is unique, we cannot guarantee any specific result from our programs or working with us. 

Health Concerns

If you (or your pet) suffer from a medical or pathological condition, you need to consult with an appropriate healthcare provider. A Nutritional Therapist is not a substitute for your family physician, vet, or other appropriate healthcare provider. A Nutritional Therapist is not trained nor licensed to diagnose or treat pathological conditions, illnesses, injuries, or diseases. Instead, see us as complementary or supportive to your traditional healthcare practitioners. 

If you (or your pet) are in fact under the care of another healthcare provider, it is important that you alert them to the use of nutritional supplements. Nutritional therapy may be a beneficial adjunct to more traditional care, and it may also alter the need for medication, so it is important you always keep your physician or vet informed of changes in nutritional programs. In return, if you (or your pet) are using medications of any kind, you are required to alert us to such use, as well as to discuss any potential interactions between medications and nutritional products with your pharmacist. If you (or your pet) have any physical or emotional reaction to nutritional therapy, discontinue their use immediately, and contact your Nutritional Therapist to ascertain if the reaction is adverse or an indication of the natural course of the body’s adjustment to the therapy.

Communication

Every client is unique, and it is not possible to determine in advance how your (or your pet's) system will react to the supplements you need. It is sometimes necessary to adjust programs as we proceed until the body can begin to properly accept products geared to correct the imbalance. It is your responsibility to do your part by using your nutrition guidelines, exercise your (or your pet's) body and mind sufficiently to bring emotions into a positive balance, eat/provide a proper diet, get/ensure plenty of rest, and learn about nutrition. You must stay in contact with the Nutritional Therapist so we can let you know what is happening and the best action plan. 

You should request your other healthcare provider, if any, to feel free to contact us for answers to any questions they may have regarding nutritional therapy.

Licensure 

A Nutritional Therapist is not licensed or certified by any state. However, a Nutritional Therapy Consultant™ (NTC) is trained by the Nutritional Therapy Association, Inc.® which provides a certificate of completion to students who have successfully met all course requirements, including a written and practical exam. A license to practice Nutritional Therapy is not required in some states. Laws and regulations regarding certification and licensure requirements differ from state to state.
