I am a Holistic Health Coach and I am currently receiving my training from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition in New York, New York, where I am studying over 100 dietary theories, practical lifestyle management techniques, and innovative coaching methods with some of the world’s top health and wellness experts, including Dr. Andrew Weil, Dr. Deepak Chopra, Dr. David Katz, Dr. Walter Willett, Dr. Mark Hyman, Dr. Alejandro Junger, Dr. John Douillard, Dr. Liz Lipski, Donna Gates, and many other leading researchers and nutrition authorities. Drawing on my background, training, skills, and life experiences, I support my clients spiritually, mentally, emotionally and physically.
However, I am not a medical doctor, dietician or nutritionist. I do not hold a degree in medicine, dietetics or nutrition. I make no claim to any specialized medical training, nor do I dispense medical advice or prescriptions. My goal is to help my clients make gradual, lifelong changes that enable them to achieve their health goals and meet their ultimate vision of well-being.
In that spirit, by purchasing coaching services, you confirm that you have read and agree to each statement below and that you wish to proceed:
- I understand that the health coaching services I will be receiving are not intended to diagnose, treat, prevent or cure any disease or condition and are not intended to be a substitute for the advice, treatment and/or diagnosis of a qualified licensed medical professional.

- I understand and agree that if I am under the care of a medical professional or am currently using prescription
medication, I should discuss any dietary changes or potential dietary supplement use with my doctor and should not discontinue any prescription medication without first consulting my doctor.
- I understand that all comments and ideas offered by my Health Coach are solely for the purpose of aiding me in achieving my defined goals. I have the ability to give my informed consent, and hereby give such consent to my Health Coach to assist me in achieving such goals.
- I understand that the care that I receive during my health coaching sessions is separate from the care that I receive from any medical facility in that the health coaching sessions are in no way intended to be construed as medical advice or care.

communicate anything that is said in the privacy of a coaching session to a third party unless expressly authorized by me or legally compelled by law, process or order of any court or governmental agency.
- I hereby release Traci Altman, individually, and TRACI ALTMAN LLC from any and all liability, damages, causes of action, allegations, suits, sums of money, claims and demands whatsoever, in law or equity, which I had, now have or will have in the future, arising from my past or future participation in, or otherwise with respect to the health coaching services.
