I hate disclaimers but I also hate repeatedly explaining myself, conflict, and getting sued. Therefore, here are a few disclaimers regarding my writings for which it is easier to post all in one location rather than on each individual blog post.

Mental Health:
The purpose of the Mental Health portions of this blog are to share my own experience and the things that I have found helpful. This blog does not provide or replace professional advice and diagnosis. Again, no comments, posts, or advice on this blog are to be viewed as authoritative. Any advice or comments should not be taken as an expert opinion. I am not officially qualified in any way beyond the information I have learned and am learning through my journey. If you think you may need help or have a mental illness, please see a doctor, therapist, and/or psychiatrist. If you think you or a loved one may need urgent medical attention, please call your doctor or visit an urgent care/ER. If you think that you or a loved one may hurt themselves or you, please call either  911 or the Suicide Prevention line: [1 (800) 273-8255]

Any statements or claims about the possible health benefits given by any foods, supplements, or activities are based on my own experiences and observations in conjunction with others trying to make similar choices. Unless otherwise stated, they have not been evaluated by the Food & Drug Administration and are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease – physical or mental. If you are trying a supplement for the first time, please do some research and always call your pharmacist or doctor to confirm that there won’t be any interactions with other health problems or medications you may currently be taking.  Always seek the advice of your physician or other qualified health provider with any questions you have regarding information about or treatment of a medical condition.

Relational and mental struggles:
Throughout my life I have experienced some relational and mental struggles that have greatly influenced my view of the world and my lifestyle choices. It would be impossible for me to blog without discussing them. I want to make clear that I am in no way angry at anyone. In fact, I have sought and given forgiveness for all people and situations involved in those situations. I do not blame them nor do I accuse them, I merely discuss as it relates to my topics and in the hope that someone else will benefit from my experiences and find the light sooner than I did.
