Therefore any clinical information provided on this site is for consideration and as a possible basis for further research by licensed practitioners. It is the sole responsibility of the individual practitioner to decide what may, or may not be, suitable for his or her patient. Any practitioner who utilizes any suggestion discussed on this site concerning diagnosis, prognosis, or treatment assumes sole responsibility for doing so.*


Those who are not licensed practitioners of Chinese medicine should not for any reason utilize the information on this site to treat themselves, or others, with any modality discussed on this site. Further, Nourishingdestiny.com, or Lonny S. Jarrett shall not be held responsible for any result obtained by utilizing on one’s self, or one one’s patient, any clinical information posted on this site.
