Purchase of products (supplements)
Nutritional supplements may be recommended during a consultation. These will be ordered through a third party website where the company sends you an invoice and the product directly to you. They may charge you for a postage fee. I only use practitioner grade supplements in my clinic. Tax Invoice receipts are provided by the third party in relation to supplements purchased.
There are no refunds for change of mind, however, if you are unhappy with the consultation, please contact me so we can discuss.
If you require a refund in relation to a supplement provided, I am happy to help resolve the issue with you, however, this will need to be discussed with the third party provider. This may include:
an incorrect product sent by the third party;
an issue with the product sent by the third party; or
damage occurred during the delivery of that product.
I will happily assist you in finding resolution in however means practical in the event a minor problem occurs, such as problems downloading files provided to you or in the event a consultation time needs to be rescheduled.
In the rare event a major problem occurs: –
it is your responsibility to notify me of any allergies or reactions before prescribing any supplements.
it is also your responsibility to notify me straight away if any adverse reactions do occur. In the unlikely event you do experience life threatening symptoms such as anaphylaxis, call 000 immediately.
Please remember, while treatment plans are written out for each individual, any time frames stipulated may change depending on a range of factors such as compliance with treatment and your response to treatment. We are all unique and our genetics, environment, diet and lifestyle can impact on our health differently. It is not possible to guarantee when and if you will reach your desired health outcome.
Any products prescribed are for you only and must not be given to any family member or friends. Self-prescribing can be harmful and it is why I recommend seeking qualified professional advice to ensure the safety of all individuals before taking supplements.
