MEDICAL CONDITIONS TERMS & CONDITIONS
a. I understand that Hrishikesh Shanghvi is a Certified Nutrition Coach and does not dispense medical advice nor prescribe treatment. Rather, he provides education to enhance my knowledge of health as it relates to foods, behaviours associated with eating, and exercise. While nutritional support can be an important complement to my medical care, I understand nutrition counselling is not a substitute for the diagnosis, treatment, or care of disease by a medical provider.

c. I acknowledge that the advice I receive during my nutrition coaching sessions is separate from the care that I receive from any medical facility, and that this coaching is in no way intended to be construed as medical advice or care. I should continue regular medical supervision and care by my primary care physician.
2. Personal Responsibility and Release of Health Care Related Items.
I acknowledge that I take full responsibility for my life and well-being, as well as the lives and well-being of my family and children (where applicable), and all decisions made during and after the duration of my participation in nutrition coaching.
I expressly assume the risks of the nutrition coaching, including the risks of trying new foods, and the risks inherent in making lifestyle changes.
I release Hrishikesh Shanghvi from any and all liability, damages, causes of action, allegations, suits, sums of money, claims and demands whatsoever, in law or equity, which I ever had, now have, or will have in the future against Hrishikesh Shanghvi, arising from my past or future participation in, or otherwise with respect to, the nutrition sessions, unless arising from the gross negligence of Hrishikesh Shanghvi.
