I agree that I have consulted with my doctor before embarking on HealED Coaching.
I acknowledge that the purpose of this program is to help me improve my health, wellness, and lifestyle.
I am employing the services from staff members at HealED so that I can obtain information and guidance about health factors within my control (such as diet, hydration, lifestyle, wellness, and various other related behaviours) in order to help and support my health and wellness.
I understand that the staff members at HealED are nutritional educators and they do NOT dispense medical advice or prescribe treatment. Rather the staff provide education to enhance my knowledge of health as it relates to food consumption, hydration lifestyle, and related activities. While nutritional support can be an important complement to my medical care, I understand that nutritional therapy programme is NOT a substitute for the diagnosis, treatment, or care of a disease, illness, or injury by a medical provider.
Nutritional evaluations and lifestyle assessments are not intended for the diagnoses of disease. Rather, these are intended as a guide for the development of a nutritional programme and used to monitor my progress in achieving my health and wellness goals.
I understand that HealED will keep all documents related to me (including, but not limited to, assessments, food diaries, forms, worksheets, audio, transcripts, video, or images) and any notes that relate to me, as a record of our work together. I understand that records may also document the topics that we talk about, my progress, plan discussed, or any other considerations that may be helpful to my health and wellness. Records will be stored in a secure location.
Medical records, personal information and history divulged to HealED, in or out of session, will be kept strictly confidential unless I consent to sharing this information by way of a signed release.
I understand that every person is unique and it is not possible to determine in advance how my system will react to certain foods, drinks, supplements, or dietary products that may be suggested to me from time to time, I agree that it may be necessary to adjust my plan from time to time until my body can begin to properly accept nutritional changes. I accept that it is my responsibility and decision to disregard nutritional, exercise, and lifestyle guidelines. It is also my responsibility to hydrate well, get plenty of rest, and learn about nutrition.
I agree to hold HealED’s staff and owners harmless for claims or damages in connection without work together under the terms of this consent form. I understand that this consent form is also a release of HealED’s liability. I accept that the advice under this programme is not a guarantee for health improvements or for reaching my health goals, and that I should not use food products or supplements as a substitute for medical treatment or a varied diet.
All components of this programme have been explained to me and demonstrated but I should feel free to ask any questions I have. I agree I will inform the staff at HealED if there is any reason why I should not continue with the programme, for example, an illness or an injury that requires medical advice. If, at any time, I feel undue pain or excessive discomfort, I will stop the programme undertaking immediately and inform my GP/doctor of my symptoms as well as informing staff members at HealED . I am at all times responsible for seeking medical advice where appropriate.
I understand I am free to withdraw from the program any time I wish. I agree to take part in the programme described to me by HealED. The nature, purpose, risks, and benefits have been explained to me and I understand what is required of me and that I may withdraw at any time. The services may also be terminated at the discretion of HealED with sufficient notice.
I understand the intellectual property right and privacy of all materials and information provided to me during the programme. I agree to use the session handouts, worksheets, and questionnaires for my own personal (non commercial) purposes only and that I will not share, copy, or distribute them t third parties.
