No, we are not medical doctors and do not uphold ourselves as such. We identify as unlicensed complementary and alternative health providers. Simply put, we are holistic wellness coaches and nutritional consultants. We do not diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease nor do we write or prescribe prescriptions. We are not licensed medical professionals. We’ve written a blog post identifying the differences between doctors and [natural] healers available here.
Per the Louisiana law (exemption, RS 37:1742.1), we serve as unlicensed vendors or “Any person who provides information or makes recommendations regarding lifestyle modifications, food, dietary supplements, or homeopathic remedies, for a consulting fee….” Herbal therapeutics do not replace medical diagnosis or treatment. Therefore, we are not replacements or substitutes for professional medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment. However, we can and do work alongside your existing medical team (if desired) to offer holistic guidance.
However, as trained holistic wellness professionals, we are able to offer access to practitioner-grade vitamins, minerals, and supplements via one of our online virtual dispensaries. Currently, our FullScript is only accessible to all holistic nutrition/herbalism clients while Wellevate is primarily accessible via premium packages.
