Plato’s Garden seeks the highest quality herbs. We are always seeking better and more sustainable herbs as our business grows. The herbs we currently sell go through a Quality Control Laboratory which provides microbiology, HPTLC identity, and ICP-MS heavy metal testing. That means that the herbs are properly identified by professional systems and technicians to ensure you’re getting the right herbs, and that none of the herbs are full of heavy metals, which can occur if herbs are growing on old waste sites, for example. Please read the following medical disclaimer and remember that you are responsible for your own health decisions. 

You are seeking health guidance and/or herbal products and hereby attest to the following:

1. I fully understand that a Plato’s Garden herbalist is not a licensed medical doctor, does not diagnose or treat diseases, and does not replace medical advice or recommendations. Plato’s Garden is not making choices for the client but seeks to educate the client on the traditional / historical uses of herbs.

2. Suggestions and treatments are offered for my own well-being and are not intended to take the place of qualified professional medical care, including the diagnosed treatment of named diseases. Plato’s Garden does not work with diseases, we work with cells, tissues and fluids. Please consult your medical care provider before using herbal medicine, particularly if you have a known medical condition, are on medications, or if you are
pregnant or nursing.

3. I am responsible for my own health. As with conventional medicine, herbal medicine is vast and complex, and must be used responsibly. People react differently to different remedies. Some herbs are contraindicated with certain pharmaceutical drugs. Some herbs act as medicines in small doses, but as poisons in large doses. Further, some helpful herbs may be confused with harmful and/or deadly substances.

4. I agree that all nutritional supplements, herbs, extracts, remedies, etc. are taken at my own risk. As with any ingested substance, or externally applied substance, allergic reaction is a possibility in some individuals. I have been informed of the risks and consequences involved.

5. I agree that I and my heirs, guardians, legal representatives and assigns will not make claim or file any action against myself or any members of Plato’s Garden for injury or damage resulting from negligence or other acts, whatsoever, caused in connection with my consultation or purchase. I also understand that Plato’s Garden will not be held responsible for errors/ingredients on the part of any manufacturer or supplier of products
