Even though I am a health care provider, the purpose of this class is not to dispense personal medical advice, and in no way should be construed as such. There is no doctor/patient relationship here. The purpose is to give general information to individuals with the perspective of traditional ways of eating and preparing food.

The information and viewpoint outlined here may not necessarily be recommended by such organizations as American Heart Association, Food and Drug Administration, USDA, American Dietetics Association, American Cancer Society, Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation, and other similar agencies or organizations.

The mission of this class is only for informational and educational purposes. Please discuss with your own, qualified health care provider before adding in supplements or making any changes to your diet. The nutritional and other information in this class are not intended to be and do not constitute health care or medical advice.

Any statements or claims about the possible health benefits conferred by any foods or supplements have not been evaluated by the Food & Drug Administration and are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease. And finally, any links to other blogs or websites does not necessarily mean that I endorse that blog or website other than the information the link provides.
