1. Welcome to rootsroads.com
Your use of this website constitutes your agreement to all such terms. Please read them carefully and you can keep a copy of them for your reference. The author of this website may change any of these Terms and Conditions without prior notice.
Rootsroads.com is an informational website about ideas and alternatives for living. Recipes, wellness tips and nutrition ideas are not meant to treat or cure any medical condition or disease. Always consult with a doctor about your personal health and wellness. We try to give you the best content, information, tips, ideas as we can, but, unless specified, the authors of the contents in rootsroads.com are not specialists, doctors, nutritionists, botanists, biologists, chefs, ethnologists, or having any other diploma in the field they write about. We are just simple people, trying to understand the world better, trying make our life happy and meaningful (in our opinion) while respecting the life in and around us as far as we can see it (which is not always easy!). All ideas and informations given here come from our own experience, our own point of view, or from our own research (and sometimes all mixed together). It represents what we believe is good at the moment we write, and this may change one day with life experiences. Therefore, no content in this website is guaranteed to be right, reliable or up to date. In fact, mistakes, incomplete or not accurate informations may appear in this website (and we are pleased to hear your comment about it so we can update the information). Thus, we advise you to double check, especially when it comes to health topics, scientific research, opinions and even addresses, phone numbers,…or anything that could change without us knowing about it or that may not apply to everybody. Some information can even be true only for the one who wrote it. Always get the referral of a specialist or a doctor for any health or important concern or issue.
Adding to all that, (this is a bit philosophical) there is a difference between what one thinks or know (or thinks he knows), and what he can write or express with language and words (despite all efforts one makes to be understood !). Then, the reader can read in his own way these words coming from another person and comes out with his own copy, or interpretation of the text. As a conclusion, the reader is his own creator of the meaning he gets from any text (this is semiology theory in Literature). This is why each person may understand a text (and even life) in a different way. Therefore, even if we create/provide the texts and contents on this website, you are the creator of your understanding of this website.
Any use of the information given in this website is under your own responsibility and at your own risk.
