INFORMATION AND EDUCATION ONLY; NOT MEDICAL ADVICE:
Our products, programs, courses, and cleanses (“our Programs”) are for informational and educational purposes only and are not to be perceived as or relied upon in any way as medical advice for any individual. Our Programs are NOT intended as, and must not be understood as or construed as, medical care or advice, the practice of medicine or naturopathic medicine, the practice of dietetics, the practice of counseling care including, without limitation, psychiatry, psychology, psychotherapy, or as providing any form of medical diagnosis or treatment. Furthermore, our Programs are not intended to and do not diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease or medical condition.
While Dr. Susanna Alter and Dr. Benjamin Alter are naturopathic doctors licensed in the State of Colorado, and our Programs relate to health and nutrition, they are only educational in nature, and NO naturopathic medical services are provided on or through our Programs or to any participant in our programs or cleanses, unless that individual works separately with Dr. Susanna or Dr. Benjamin as a patient in Colorado. Information presented in our Programs is intended for a general audience and does not purport to be, nor should it be construed as, specific advice tailored to any individual.
Your enrollment in any of our Programs, including your access to information provided in the Program or implementation of any suggestions set out in the Program or Program Materials, DOES NOT create a doctor-patient relationship between you and Dr. Susanna or Dr. Benjamin, or any doctor or professional that may be associated with the Program.
You should not rely on our Programs as a substitute for the professional medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment from a qualified healthcare provider who is familiar with your individual situation. Do not disregard, avoid or delay obtaining medical advice from a licensed medical or health professional because of something you have read, viewed or heard on or in any of our Programs. Always seek the advice of your qualified health care provider with any questions you have regarding a medical condition or your health and prior to changing any medications, taking any herbal or dietary supplements, using any treatment for a health problem, or undertaking any significant changes to your health care regimen.
Because we expressly recommend that you seek advice from a licensed medical or health care professional who has knowledge of the facts and circumstances of your individual situation, the use of any information provided in our Programs is solely at your own risk. Alter Health shall not be held liable or responsible for any errors or omissions in our Programs or for any damage you may suffer because of failing to seek competent medical advice from a licensed medical or health care professional who has knowledge of the facts and circumstances of your individual situation.
Information and statements in our Programs regarding dietary supplements and products have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. Any dietary supplements or products which may be mentioned in our Programs are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.

GOVERNING LAW AND DISPUTE RESOLUTION:
These Terms & Conditions shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Colorado where the Alter Health is registered, regardless of the conflict of laws principles.
It is hoped that you will have no dispute with the Alter Health. However, should a dispute arise between you and the Alter Health, we would like to be able to work it out amicably through e-mail correspondence. Therefore, it is requested that you contact Alter Health via e-mail in attempt to resolve any dispute prior to seeking legal action and include your reasons for dissatisfaction.
However, should we be unable to resolve any potential dispute within a reasonable time, you agree now that the only method of legal dispute resolution that will be used is binding arbitration before a single arbitrator, selected jointly, in accordance with the American Arbitration Association Rules. You understand and agree now that the only remedy that can be awarded to you through arbitration is full refund of your payment made to purchase the Program as of the date of such dispute. No other actions or financial awards of consequential damages, or any other type of damages, may be granted to you. We both agree now that the decision of the arbitrator is final and binding and may be entered as a judgment into any court having the appropriate jurisdiction.
You also agree that should arbitration take place, it will be held in Denver County in the State of Colorado, and the prevailing party shall be entitled to all reasonable attorneys’ fees and all costs necessary to enforce the decision of the arbitrator.
By purchasing any of our Programs, you are agreeing to a modification of the statute of limitations such that any arbitration must be begun within one (1) year of the date of your e-mail to the Alter Health referenced above or you waive the right to seek dispute resolution by arbitration or to take any other legal action related to the Program or these Terms & Conditions.
Alter Health reserves the right to update and modify the terms of these Terms & Conditions without advance notice to you and such changes will be effective immediately when posted on this site and will govern your continued use of Alter Health Materials.
If any part these Terms & Conditions is determined to be invalid or unenforceable, the remaining portions shall remain in full force and effect. Alter Health’s failure to enforce any right under these Terms & Conditions will not constitute a waiver of such right or of any other right under these Terms & Conditions. Alter Health is not responsible for failing to fulfill its obligations hereunder for reasons that are outside of Alter Health’s control. These Terms & Conditions, and the license rights granted herein, are not assignable by you and any attempt to do so is of no force and effect.
Alter Health reserves the right to take steps Alter Health believes are reasonably necessary or appropriate to enforce and/or verify compliance with any part of these Terms & Conditions. You agree that Alter Health has the right, without liability to you, to disclose any registration data and/or account information to law enforcement authorities, government officials, and/or a third party, as Alter Health believes is reasonably necessary or appropriate to enforce and/or verify compliance with any part of these Terms & Conditions (including but not limited to Alter Health’s right to cooperate with any legal process relating to your use of the Services and/or Materials, and/or a third-party claim that your use of the Services and/or Materials is unlawful and/or infringes such third-party's rights).
