The information, advice, materials, and resources utilized in our coaching services have been prepared for informational and educational purposes only by our coaches, who have personal experience with digestive issues but are not licensed and trained medical professionals.    Any coaching advice shall not be construed as medical advice or a professional medical opinion on any facts or circumstances.

The information that our coaches provide is not guaranteed to be accurate, up-to-date, correct, or complete, and you should not rely on it to make any medical or health-related decisions.  If we provide any specific examples of outcomes, please be advised that we cannot guarantee a similar outcome in your case or in the case of a third party.  Such outcomes may not be typical for all individuals.  No information or advice that we provide is intended to replace the services of a licensed, trained physical or health professional, or to be a substitute for the medical advice of a physician or trained health professional.  You should never disregard professional medical advice or delay in seeking it because of any information or advice that our coaches may have provided to you.

Our liability to you for all claims in the aggregate shall in no event exceed the greater of the aggregate amount of all fees actually collected by us from you.  Some jurisdictions do not allow the limitation of liability, so these limitations may not apply to you.
