NOT MEDICAL TREATMENT OR CARE
THE CANARY CLUB IS FOR SELF EMPOWERMENT AND EDUCATION ONLY

I realize that nothing on this site can be construed as medical treatment nor medical care. I am working with my own primary health provider and I use the Canary Club for self empowerment and health education only.

I agree as a member of the Canary Club to familiarize myself with the current scientific basis for hormone testing and its uses in health maintenance.

The contents of the Canary Club Site, such as text, graphics, images, and other material contained on the Canary Club Site ("Content") are for informational purposes only. The Content is not intended to be a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment. Always seek the advice of your physician or other qualified health provider with any questions you may have regarding a medical condition. Never disregard professional medical advice or delay in seeking it because of something you have read on the Canary Club Site!

If you think you may have a medical emergency, call your doctor or 911 immediately. Canary Club does not recommend or endorse any specific tests, physicians, products, procedures, opinions, or other information that may be mentioned on the Site.

Some materials to read:

"Thyroid Mind Power" by Drs. Richard and Karilee Shames

"FEELING FAT, FUZZY OR FRAZZLED?" by Drs. Richard and Karilee Shames

"From Fatigued to Fantastic!" by Jacob Teitelbaum

Womens Moods: What Every Woman Must Know About Hormones, the Brain and Emotional Health by Sichel Driscoll

or other related books in order to become knowledgeable about laboratory testing.

I understand that I may need professional help to fully interpret and understand my test results, and may seek support from either Dr. Richard Shames via his telephone coaching services or another licensed health professional familiar with saliva and blood spot testing for hormones.

I understand that medical standard testing for hormones most frequently consists of blood draws and that saliva testing is still considered experimental by medical standards.

I understand that ZRT Lab and Labrix are only two of many labs; that there are many other good laboratories. I have compared the various labs, and now choose ZRT or Labrix (if you do) for my hormone testing, knowing that this is cutting edge technology not generally utilized yet in standard medical practice. I will consult with my practitioners for support and future planning of my health program.
