In general, in their communications with the clients the consultants should strictly avoid using such words as diagnose, cure, treat, prescribe, etc (Wilson 47). It might not even be appropriate to mention the word “disease” and in no case should the nutritional consultant make suppositions on the nature of the client’s illness. Also, the nutritional consultant should ensure that all personnel and assistants also realize the importance of formulations and word selection. In general, the best method of avoiding problems with legal regulations in medical sphere nutritional consultants should step far from traditional model of cure and disease, and develop a “balancing” style.
