TERMS AND CONDITIONS

By electing to work with Root Cause Clinic and/or one of the Independently Contracted Practitioner, I hereby acknowledge and agree:

1.    RCC provides a completely non-invasive method for gaining valuable information about your body’s energetic functions. The primary objective of the screening is to disclose patterns of stress and provide feedback that will assist in developing a program to restore each system and meridian to balance. Take note that 30-minute appointments are not to be used to review scans as this would not allow for a smooth and comprehensive approach. 

 

2.    I understand that Root Cause Clinic is a Bioenergetic Laboratory Testing Service Practitioner and does not provide 1-on-1 private consultations. As an added convenience to the client, Root Cause Clinic has a list of Independently Contracted Practitioners trained in interpreting the "raw data" in order to provide further insight into my energetic health. I understand that Root Cause Clinic is not responsible for the interpretation of results by any Independently Contracted Practitioner.

 

3.    I understand that the scan/ test does not provide a medical diagnosis and that my testing technician/practitioner may recommend further medical testing. If I suspect I need further medical intervention, I understand I should consult my physician. I give my permission for the testing technician to evaluate my sample. I understand in doing so my testing technician is NOT becoming my primary care physician. I understand that the testing technician will give me information about myself and make recommendations based on the screening. I understand that the testing technician will not pass judgments on prescribed medications, and it is the responsibility of my primary care physician to make any adjustments on prescribed medications. Any decision to follow through with the recommended program is my own decision and I hold the testing technician/practitioner and Root Cause Clinic free of any and all liability for any decisions I choose to make with the information provided.

 

4.    I understand that I am here to learn about natural health and better lifestyle practices, and I will be offered information about food supplements and herbs as a guide to general health.

 

5.    I understand that I should continue to see any medical doctors I am currently under the care of, and that any prescribed medications should not be altered without first consulting the physician who recommended it.

 

6.    I fully understand that those who counsel me are not medical doctors, medical practitioners, licensed nutritionists, or licensed naturopaths. I am not here for any medical diagnostic purposes or treatment procedures.

 

7.    Information about traditional uses of supplementation that may create a healthy balance in the body may be discussed. This is not intended to be interpreted as a substitute for a licensed physician’s treatment. Nothing said, done, typed, printed or reproduced is intended to diagnose, prescribe, treat, or take the place of a licensed physician.

 

8.    The intent is to provide educational information for the purpose of assisting you with the lifestyle changes necessary to regain and maintain an environment needed to support a well-balanced lifestyle.

 

9.    I am not on this visit, or any subsequent visit, acting as an agent for the federal, state, county, local law enforcement, or news media on a mission of entrapment or investigation.

 

10.    I understand that all information and conversations will be kept confidential but may be recorded for quality assurance and training purposes, and that information concerning myself will not be released to anyone outside of Root Cause Clinic.

 

11. I understand that the screening will only identify energetic imbalances and does not diagnose any diseases in the body. The Balancing Item refers to the energetic signature needed to restore balance to the body's energy field. Balancing Items are defined differently from medical terms and are not a cure for any disease.

 

 

12.    I recognize that the screening is an unorthodox approach to balancing my health. Being of sound mind, I have chosen this screening to assist in balancing my health of my own free will and in the exercise of my constitutional right for the attainment of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

 

13.    I understand that my package expires 6 months from the date of purchase and if not used in full, the remaining unused package will be forfeited. No credit will be issued in lieu of the use of the package. No refunds will be issued. 

 

14.    I understand that the technology Root Cause Clinic uses is not diagnostic, but for the sole purpose of identifying and balancing unhealthy energy patterns.

 

15.    I also understand that if a balancing energy pattern shows up in the testing procedure the analysis is not saying that this is present in the body but simply that the energetic pattern is needed for bringing the body to homeostasis (balance) so it can better heal itself.

 

16.    I understand that this does not take the place of advice given by my primary care physician and that if I have any questions regarding the suggested protocol schedule and the interactions of prescribed drugs, I will consult my physician. I will speak to your Primary Care Provider prior to initiating or stopping any supplements or pharmaceuticals.

 

17.    I also understand that the detox process can create a healing crisis and it is possible I will feel worse before I feel better. This is considered a normal part of the healing process (herx).

 

18.    I understand that Root Cause Clinic and its techniques have not been evaluated or approved by the FDA.

We reserve the right to refuse service and sales should we deem the relationship unsafe/ unhealthy for either party. We take your privacy seriously and must make you aware that we must report to the proper local authorities should any disclosures be made pertaining to the safety and welfare of any person in danger. I UNDERSTAND THAT THERE WILL BE NO REFUNDS ONCE PAYMENT HAS BEEN PROCESSED.

19.    I understand if I am not satisfied with the results after testing has taken place, I am not entitled to a refund of any kind.

 

20.    I understand that results cannot be guaranteed. 

 

21.    I understand that a protocol created by Root Cause Clinic or Independently Contracted Practitioners does not constitute a replacement for medical care and does not guarantee a change in health status. 

 

22.    I am of sound mind and understand that I am choosing to work with Root Cause Clinic and Independently Contracted Practitioner. 

 

23.    I may elect to change the protocol recommendations which can also alter the results, as each item chosen was done so with the intent to provide complete support.

 

24.    Packages are to be used by one individual. Both test kits must be used by the individual whom the package was booked for.
