Food & Spirit and Whole Detox Programs Refund Policy

Participants who register for any of Food & Spirit’s programs have 24 hours from the time of payment to cancel and receive a refund. If you do want a refund within 24 hours, contact us via email at info@foodandspirit.com to request your refund. We will process your refund as soon as reasonably possible.

After 24 hours from the time of receipt of payment, the payment will become a non-refundable credit that the participant can use towards any future Food & Spirit programs. The payment is non-transferable unless Food & Spirit gives its express, written consent, in its sole discretion, for any amount of credit to be transferred to another party. If you are unable to attend a specific program session, you must notify Food & Spirit at least 24 hours in advance, in writing, of your unavailability, and Food & Spirit, may, in its sole discretion, approve the attendance of your representative to that specific program.

This policy does not apply to the certification program, see Certified Food & Spirit Practitioner Program refund policy for details.

Certified Food & Spirit Practitioner Certification Refund Policy

The Certified Food & Spirit Practitioner Program is for dedicated students who are committed to invest the necessary time and devotion to complete the program. It is estimated that 3-5 hours a week is needed to maintain the pace. Food & Spirit is committed to offer a recognized, professional-level training program, designed to increase nutritional knowledge and equip Participants to either use that knowledge for their own personal health gains or to use it in their practices with patients.

Participants who register for the Certified Food & Spirit Practitioner Program have 24 hours from the time of payment to cancel and receive a full refund. If you do want a refund within 24 hours, contact Food & Spirit via email at info@foodandspirit.com to request your refund. If the participant requests a refund, in writing, after the expiration of 24 hours from the purchase but before the participant has been given access to the student dashboard, 50% of the payment shall be refunded to the participant. Food & Spirit will process your refund as soon as reasonably possible.

Once a participant’s registration is processed and access to the online Dashboard and Tool Kit has been granted, the paid tuition for the course becomes non-refundable.

If, however, a participant finds that they are unable to manage the pace and/or workload of the 12-week program, Food & Spirit offers the following two options (which are in addition to the initial fee paid for the program):

  1. An extension, to help you catch up and complete your exam and case study for a fee of $49.00 for an additional 30 days.
  2. Or, request to transfer to a new program for a fee of $295 so that you can get a refresher of the program before you take the exam and case study.

Any exception to the above policy is at Food & Spirit’s sole discretion to change or give exceptions to.

UPON THE START DATE OF THE CERTIFICATION PROGRAM, NO REFUNDS WILL BE GIVEN WHATSOEVER FOR MISSED PROGRAMS OR UNAVAILABILITY OF THE PARTICIPANT.

If you believe in good faith that materials hosted by Food & Spirit infringe your copyright, you, or your agent may send to Food & Spirit a notice requesting that the material be removed or access to it be blocked. Any notification by a copyright owner or a person authorized to act on its behalf that fails to comply with requirements of the DMCA shall not be considered sufficient notice and shall not be deemed to confer upon Food & Spirit actual knowledge of facts or circumstances from which infringing material or acts are evident. If you believe in good faith that a notice of copyright infringement has been wrongly filed against you, the DMCA permits you to send to Food & Spirit a counter-notice. All notices and counter notices must meet the then current statutory requirements imposed by the DMCA; see http://www.loc.gov/copyright for details.

The arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a class or representative proceeding or claims (such as a class action, consolidated action or private attorney general action) unless all relevant parties specifically agree to do so following initiation of the arbitration.

N. Severability

If any clause within this Provision (other than the Class Action Waiver clause above) is found to be illegal or unenforceable, that clause will be severed from this Provision, and the remainder of this Provision will be given full force and effect. If the Class Action Waiver clause is found to be illegal or unenforceable, this entire Provision will be unenforceable and the dispute will be decided by a court.
