Informed Consent Regarding Nutritional and Herbal Supplements

Effective as of February 27, 2024


Informed Consent Regarding Nutritional and Herbal Supplements According to the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act, as amended, Section 201(g)(1), the term drug is defined as an “article intended for use in the diagnosis, cure, mitigation, treatment, or prevention of disease.” Technically, vitamins, minerals, trace elements, amino acids, herbs, or homeopathic remedies are not classified as drugs. However, these substances can significantly affect physiology and must be used rationally. 5 Elements Coaching, LLC., offers nutritional counseling and makes individualized recommendations regarding the use of nutritional or herbal supplements to upgrade the quality of foods in a patient’s diet and supply nutritional components to support the physiological and biomechanical processes of the human body. Although these products may also be suggested, or you may choose your own nutritional and herbal supplements through FullScript for their specific therapeutic purpose, their use is chiefly designed to support given aspects of metabolic functions. Nutritional or herbal supplements may be safely recommended for patients already using pharmaceutical medications (drugs). Still, some potentially harmful interactions may occur, so using FullScripts without further services is at your own risk. For this reason, you must keep your healthcare providers fully informed about all pharmaceutical drugs and nutritional supplements, herbs, or hormones you may be taking.
