An Important Message to Users

The Website includes various approaches to alternative healing based on an earnest belief in the power of prayer. Before making the same decision to rely on prayer in the treatment of physical, emotional or mental problems for yourself or your children, you need to satisfy yourself that you are making the right decision if you forego conventional medical treatment, childhood vaccinations, and the other resources of mainstream medicine. Your own — and the life and health of your children — will depend on making the right choices. For that reason, it is strongly recommend that you consult conventional medical doctors before you make the decision to use any of the approaches described in the Content so that you will fully understand the risks of doing so.

Although every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy and completeness of the Content, we assume no responsibility for errors, inaccuracies, omissions, or inconsistencies in the Content, nor do we assume responsibility if you choose to use the same approaches described in the Content but do not achieve successful results.

By way of example only, and without limiting the foregoing disclaimer, the disclaimer applies to your decision to use or refraining from using vaccines and other conventional medicines as well as herbal remedies or all kinds.

Various brand-name herbal remedies may be mentioned in the Content. The brands and their manufacturers are mentioned for informational purposes only, and neither the Website nor any of the Content is sponsored by or affiliated with any of these companies. However, Users are advised that Tenna Merchent is currently a distributor of products manufactured by Pure Herbs and Nature’s Sunshine.

All comments on people, places, products or organizations, and all value judgments expressed in the Content, are statements of opinion only.
