STATEMENT AS TO NATURE OF SERVICES, PRIVACY STATEMENT and DISCLAIMER:
Continued: Such care is commonly referred to as complementary or alternative medicine ("CAM"), or functional, holistic or integrative care. Many of these therapies have been long practiced in other cultures, while others are emerging, innovative techniques that bring to patients the best thinking of researchers and cutting edge physicians from around the world. Some of these therapies may be experimental or under formal investigational status and patients may have to meet certain criteria to have access to these procedures. Some tests, medications, or treatments may not have received formal approval by the Food and Drug Administration or other regulatory agencies for the purposes for which they are used by NIHA practitioners. I understand that if I choose to see a practitioner at NIHA I will discuss the status, risks and benefits of potential diagnostic tests and therapies.
