Disclaimer

Just so we are clear about things...

First and foremost, I am not a physician or MD.  I have no medical training.

What I do have is 30 years of  experience as a business person and consultant.  My clients have hired me to research and solve complex problems.  Give me a good problem and I’m like a dog with a bone.

The problem I’m working on right now – and my life depends on it – is curing my colon cancer.

All information presented on this website should be regarded as information I deemed helpful in my personal journey, like friendly advice and opinions based on my experience and research.  This information is for educational purposes and should not be interpreted as medical advice.  It would, however, please me greatly if my experience helps you in your journey.  Just make sure you dot your own “I’s” and cross your own “T’s.”

I am not suggesting or prescribing any particular medical treatment — and the information contained on this website is not intended to replace a one-on-one relationship with a doctor or qualified health practitioner.

Nothing I’ve written on this blog has been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration and the information on this website is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease. I am also not a registered dietitian dispensing dietary advice. While I believe in what I’m doing and the efficacy of what I publish, you must use this information at your own discretion.

DISCLOSURE

The rest of this disclosure is based on the disclosure from Tim Ferris by way of Chris Wark.  (Thanks Tim and Chris!)

This blog is not financially driven. I started this primarily to share my experience and what I’ve learned with anyone who wants to know.  My approach to healing cancer without chemotherapy involved the use of many health-related products like nutraceutical supplements, natural body care products, kitchen tools, exercise equipment, etc. If I have a good experience with a product I recommend it to others.

Ads and affiliate programs help cover the costs involved with running this site. I could easily plaster ads all over this site and make more money. But the message is more important than the money. So if a company that makes a product I love wants to advertise I say “Yes!” If Pepsi wants to advertise, I say “no”. Cancer industry advertisers can also take a walk.. They will get a “no”. Bottom line: I only personally recommend products that I use and believe in. Period.

That said, beginning December 1, 2009, the FTC requires bloggers to provide disclosures whenever there could be hidden interests or unspoken biases related to recommendations.

If I ever interview someone and they grab the bill for lunch, I would need to specify this, as I would if I use an Amazon link that gets me 8 cents instead of an Amazon link that gets me no cents. If someone gives me a sweet t-shirt with a logo and I wear it in a photo, ditto. Disclaimers all over.

This would be tedious for me and a continual eye sore for readers. But them’s the rules.

To cover my bases and preserve your reading experience, please assume that, for every recommendation, link, and product I use, the following all hold true:
