  1. My Qualifications and Responsibility


Valery Martino Naturopathic Practitioner ( registered) and Clinical Herbalist

Bs.c N.D Cl.H. It is my responsibility to keep my knowledge and skills up to date in the areas of health that I have chosen to work with. I do this by keeping up to date with my CPE, seeking mentoring and researching the latest developments in health conditions and herbal medicine.


Because the field of health and wellbeing contains a huge body of knowledge and information, I choose to focus on working with women over 40 years of age and in particular I am committed to learning all I can to help women with reproductive illnesses, perimenopause, menopause and the chronic diseases of ageing. It is my responsibility to refer you to another health care professional if your health condition is outside my scope of practice.


I will pay attention to what you tell me about your health and commit to taking all reasonable care and due diligence when providing recommendations for your health.


  1. Your Responsibility


When working with me is it your responsibility to be honest about the scope of your health conditions, provide full and accurate information about your health, your health history, and current medications and/or supplements that you are taking.


If we are working together via phone or video it is your responsibility to be in a quiet room and to give our consultation your fullest attention.


It is your responsibility to read the health plan that I provide and ask questions if you don't understand any of my recommendations.


It is your responsibility to stop taking any herbal medicines or supplements that make you feel unwell and check with me before continuing or deciding to discontinue my recommendations.


Because health conditions can change, any recommendations you receive from me are valid for 6 months. It is your responsibility to seek advice if you intend to follow the advice I have given for longer than a period of 6 months.


  1. Important Information


Please be aware that I am not a qualified counselor or psychotherapist and I will recommend that you talk to practitioner who is qualified in this area to offer you any mental health support that you may require.


I recommend you tell your doctor about any herbal remedies you are taking and openly discuss the recommendations I make for you with your doctor. It is my wish that your health care with me is complimentary to that of your primary health care practitioner.


  1. Waiver of Liability


While I make all reasonable efforts to ensure that my services meet with the highest standards of best practice, if something does go wrong that is not a direct result of my negligence, misrepresentation or deliberate fault, you agree that, to the fullest extent permitted by law, I will not be liable for any damages whatsoever, including but without limitation to any direct, indirect, special, consequential, punitive or incidental damages, or damages for loss of use, profits, data or other intangibles, damage to goodwill or reputation, or the cost of procurement of substitute goods and services, arising out of or related to the use, inability to use, performance or failures of my website, any products or services purchased through it, or any material posted on it, irrespective of whether such damages were foreseeable or arise in contract, tort, equity, restitution, by statute, at common law or otherwise.
