It has become obligatory for health materials to carry a legal disclaimer. You’ve read them: “The following is not intended as a substitute for the advice of a physician…” And they go on to recommend that you consult a doctor before embarking on whatever program is being offered. They conclude with the author and publisher disclaiming any legal responsibility for adverse consequences.

I take another approach. Don’t read this material if you feel you need the protection of a disclaimer and its counsel. I’m serious. Health care must start with personal responsibility. This vital role should not be delegated to any expert. Yours is the ultimate judgment. Any disclaimer that suggests otherwise does a great disservice.

I only wish I had written this disclaimer myself because you can take it as mine, however it’s author is a physical therapist called Pete Egoscue.
