About Sacred Medicine Sanctuary
Sacred Medicine Sanctuary is a non-denominational
church devoted to health and healing. The church provides information and some products that might be helpful to certain people. It is not necessary to agree with much less accept
the beliefs of the church in order to avail
oneself of the goods and services provided by Sacred Medicine Sanctuary.
These are offered irrespective of religion.
Sacred Medicine Sanctuary supports religious freedom and freedom of choice
in health care. It is also an article of faith that individuals should be permitted to live
in accordance with their own beliefs so long as those beliefs pose no harm to others. Failure to uphold one's truths can cause a schism to occur between the real and the ideal. The daily
choices we make determine how much we are in alignment with our own beliefs and whether or not we are walking our talk.
Where products are concerned, the Sanctuary makes
no claim as to the superiority or effectiveness of what it provides. The
herbs and/or herbal formulae are merely offered in the hopes of
and with prayers for healing. The formulas are produced in accordance
with historic and traditional precepts, not modern science. As
such, using the methods of science, they are not "proven."
Since the Sanctuary believes that healing need
not entail harm to other species, it does not condone experiments
in which tumors are transplanted into animals or in which laboratory
animals are deliberately exposed to carcinogens. We therefore expect
that everything we provide will continue to remain "unproven."
However, we support the need for
integrity and conscience. Therefore, we request that everyone
asking for our products participate in what might be called "outcome research." Simply
stated, this means that we ask for feedback in whatever form
it is available as to the effectiveness of the products for
the purposes used by the patient. From these reports, we hope to
develop better and better products.
The Sanctuary exists to provide a service. Those
who wish to benefit by the services should consider carefully how
suitable the services are to their particular beliefs and needs. Though we
support the freedom to choose what is acceptable to the beliefs
of each individual, but we assume no responsibility for the outcome
of choices made by anyone exercising this freedom. It is the
responsibility of the patient and those closest to the patient
to evaluate the products and services in relationship to the patients
life and needs. We recommend that people periodically assess
their responses to their chosen treatments and that they seriously
consider changing to other treatments if their responses are not
sufficient to warrant continued efforts.
In sum, the Sanctuary provides a conscious alternative
for those whose beliefs dictate a preference for these alternatives. In
no way are we claiming or even implying that results will be more
satisfactory if our products and/or services are used over some
other option. We are providing what we offer as a matter of spiritual
persuasion, not medical science; and we respectfully request everyone
seeking our services to weigh the meaning of this in the light
of his or her own needs and beliefs.
