Nature Experience Cautions
Nature is a marvelous, beautiful, healing environment, but it’s also a dangerous environment. To minimize risk when encountering the natural world, I suggest learning as much as you can about your local environment. Learn how to react when you encounter an animal or an insect that you’re not familiar with. Learn their names and which ones might be harmful. Learn what to do if you get stung or bitten. The more you know, the better you can assess the risk of any given situation and make the best possible decisions for yourself and your loved ones. You alone are responsible for your outdoor safety.

You are responsible for your 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. Further, some helpful herbs may be confused with harmful and/or deadly substances.
There are many plants and mushrooms that can make you sick, or are deadly poisonous. Be 100% of your identification before you harvest any plant or mushroom. Additionally, sometimes a new food, even properly identified, can cause an unusual reaction – ranging from gastric intolerance to a full-blown allergy. It is your responsibility to make sure you are harvesting the correct plant or mushroom and it is your choice to try any new food. We cannot be responsible for incorrect identification or reactions to plants or fungi.
You are responsible for your own choices. This includes but is not limited to the ingestion, application, or other use of alcohol or any poisonous, toxic, or allergenic substance. In the event that you are not of legal age to consume alcohol, we recommend that you refrain from the purchase, consumption, or use of alcohol. If you elect to disregard such recommendation, you do so at your own risk, and we accept no liability relating to or arising from your activities.
We cannot predict how a remedy will work for you. Always refer to your medical care provider for questions about your health.
