About the images:

In addition to our own original images, several photographers and artists have graciously allowed us to use their images on our sites, and many are taken from free stock photo and public domain sources. With the proliferation of photo sharing sites it is easy for the true owner of an image to be unclear. We try our best to research and respect copyrights. However, if you feel that a picture on this site might be infringing your copyright, please do provide us with the URL of our page where you feel there is copyright infringement, a description of the image, and a statement that you are the rightful owner of the digital media.

The lifestyle and nutritional suggestions in this material are not offered to treat, mitigate, cure or prevent disease, and should not be used as a substitute for sound medical advice. Health information presented is designed to be used in conjunction with the ongoing services of a trained licensed healthcare practitioner. We do not claim that products described treat, mitigate, cure or prevent any physical or mental condition or illness. Only medical doctors and drug companies whose large profits allow them to perform the sort of tests required by the FDA can claim that.

The services performed by MaryAnn Copson, Licensed Certified Nutritionist, are limited to consultation on the subject of nutritional matters and comprehensive lifestyle plans with alternative health and wellness considerations that are intended for the maintenance of the best possible state of general and nutritional health and performance and do not involve the diagnosing, prognosticating or treatment of disease. MaryAnn Copson, CN, is not a Medical Doctor and according to the government of the United States and the State of Virginia is not qualified for medical diagnostic or treatment procedures. Her work includes no medical evaluation or assessment, nor any interpretation of any medication information, medical testing, and/or any medical conditions or illness.

All Evenstar herbal products are sold without warranty and are specifically formulated and packaged individually and as such are not returnable. Descriptive names of herbal products do not imply a medical, curative, or preventive effect and are based solely upon traditional herbal wisdom and unsubstantiated anecdotal evidence. Herbal products are not intended for use in the cure, mitigation, treatment, or prevention of disease.

It is important to make the distinction that, whenever MaryAnn may refer to “medicine” in connection with anything that she is doing, she is not talking about conventional allopathic medical treatments. Traditional native cultures often refer to medicine as something that gives power and completion to a person and this is the definition that we use in conjunction with MaryAnn’s Native American heritage and training whenever referring to any product or service of MaryAnn Copson and Evenstar.
