The material on the site is in no way intended to replace medical advice offered by physicians or a complete medical history and physical examination by a physician. In any event and before adopting any of the suggestions in The Ashton Manual or drawing inferences from it, you should consult with your professional health care provider.

The material should not be considered complete and does not cover all diseases, ailments, physical conditions or their treatment. The information about drugs is general in nature. It does not cover all possible uses, actions, precautions, side effects, or interactions of the medicines mentioned.

The material provided should not be used for diagnosing or treating a health problem or disease.
