Terms and Conditions

Posted by Naturostudy on June 22, 2010 under | Comments are off for this article

Enrolling for Linda Lazarides’ One Year Intensive Course in Naturopathic Nutrition (‘the Course’) implies acceptance of these Terms and Conditions, which constitute a binding agreement between you and Linda Lazarides trading as the School of Modern Naturopathy (‘the School’).

Internet Access

It is a requirement of the course that you have internet access in order to use the student forum, locate information for your assignments and submit them online.


All communications will be in English. All administrative communications between you and the School must be by post or by e-mail sent to admin@naturostudy.org. In order to keep down the costs of the Course, the School does not employ staff to deal with telephone enquiries.

All questions about the Course content and assignments must be asked on the internet forum to which you will be given access.


A Pay Button is provided on this Website. The link to this button will be emailed to successful applicants.

Clicking the Pay Button will take you to www.paypal.com to set up your monthly subscription. (For current rates please see our Prospectus.) We use Paypal technology to make our online module content automatically available as soon as each monthly fee payment is processed. Because our course delivery depends on this system we are not at the present time able to offer other payment options. Paypal accepts most debit and credit cards.

You should not set up your monthly subscription until you are ready to start receiving your module books. Paypal will make an automatic payment every month and will email you when it has been made. Payment breaks are not possible unless you cancel your subscription and start a new subscription at a later date. If you cancel your subscription you will only be able to access your online content for one month after your last payment. This is a software issue and is beyond our control.

If you should subsequently start a new subscription at a later date this will be at the monthly fee rate currently in force, which may be greater than the rate that was available when you started your first subscription. Our current rate can be checked on the Prospectus page of this website.

Course Materials

All course materials will be in the English language and in addition to the online module content the Student will also receive 10 printed module books. One module book per month for 10 months will be despatched to your mailing address.

You must ensure that we always have your up-to-date mailing address. Postage is expensive, and you will be charged extra if the School is obliged to re-send a module book because you were not available to take delivery of it. The books are sent from the United Kingdom, and, depending on where you are in the world, and the efficiency of your local postal service, they may take some weeks to arrive.


To gain the School’s Diploma you will be required to complete satisfactorily and in good time each assignment which accompanies the monthly modules, plus a final course assignment/assessment.

Students should normally submit each monthly assignment within 30 days of receiving each module book. However in order to allow for holidays and emergencies, a student may be allowed up to 14 months to complete all the course work. The student must notify the School if he or she wishes to take extra time. If the School feels that any student is slipping back without sufficient reason, it may impose penalties in the form of extra assignments before the diploma can be awarded.

Graduates of the Course will be eligible to register with one of the professional associations which accredits the School.


The information presented in the Course is not intended as a substitute for medical training. Every effort has been made to ensure accuracy, but the Course is provided on the understanding that the School is not liable for any misconception or misuse of the information provided and shall have neither liability nor responsibility to any person or entity with respect to any loss, damage or injury caused or alleged to be caused directly or indirectly by the said information. Results from applying the knowledge gained from the Course may vary according to individual genetic and/or other factors which are beyond the control or expertise of the School.

Cancellations and Refunds

You may cancel your subscription to the Course at any time by logging into your Paypal account. Your subscription is in the name of L A Lazarides, and you will find it by clicking ‘Profile’ > ‘My Money’ > ‘My Preapproved Payments’. The name which will appear on your credit card statement is HEALTHDIETS.

No refunds will be given for payments already made unless you cancel your subscription within 28 days after your first payment. You must also email us to claim your refund. You will then receive a refund of your first subscription payment less a small administrative charge of 10.00 USD.


In the event of any legal disputes between you and the School, you agree that these will be resolved in the courts of England and Wales.

These Terms and Conditions may be changed at any time without notice.
