PRESCRIPTION: HEALTH DISCLAIMER
It is not my intention at PRESCRIPTION: HEALTH, to encourage client's to ignore their physician's advice, nor is it my intention to be considered an alternative to traditional allopathic medicine.|
WI consider naturopathy to be complimentary to allopathy and want to be instrumental in encouraging physicians in all fields to consider incorporating complimentary medicine in the treatment of various diseases. The information, counseling and guidelines I give to all of my clients, are given as suggestions to be approved by their primary physician and I in no way encourage, suggest or imply that the physician's advice and course of treatment should be ignored.
I first obtain a medical release from the primary care physician, inform the physician of the program I will be using and continually update the physician as to the progress his patient is making. Any suggestion given is one that can be used in conjunction with medical advice already given. I do not diagnose and treat disease. I study tissue changes and make nutritional suggestions that will improve the condition of those tissues.
SCOPE OF PRACTICE
As a certified Clinical Exercise Specialist, I provide fitness assessments, design and implement fitness programs for special populations as well as the apparently healthy population and I maintain a liaison between my client and other health professionals involved with the client's health needs.
As a certified Iridologist I provide a non-intrusive diagnostic assessment of a client's nutritional deficiencies and suggest nutritional changes that can be made to support optimal health.
