Helping your business be
LEGALLY healthy!

Terms of Purchase

Introduction and Purpose

Thank you for purchasing The Legally Healthy Package, (the LHP) a legal template package designed for naturopaths, nutritionists, herbalists and other natural health practitioners.

The Legally Healthy Package was created by experienced business lawyer and naturopath Chantel Ryan (trading as Themis Legal). As a new naturopath, Chantel realized many of her colleagues were starting and/or running their businesses with either no legal documents in place, or with ones they had drafted themselves or pulled from the internet! Chantel being in the unique position of being both a naturopath and an experienced lawyer, drafted all of the documents and information sheets in the package. Chantel’s naturopathic mentor Rebecca Lang, an experienced naturopath, nutritionist and herbalist, helped Chantel put the package together. Both are passionate about helping other practitioners protect themselves and their businesses and minimise their legal risk.

We understand getting your legals done can be overwhelming and costly, which leads many to avoid it altogether. The main purpose for creating the LHP was to provide an affordable package with some useful template legal documents and information sheets to get you started.

The natural health industry is under a microscope now more than ever, and it is imperative that we operate within the law, and protect ourselves from unnecessary risk, as much as possible. The package has been prepared by considering the types of legal documents that are usually required when starting out as a naturopath, or when operating a small sized business (as a sole trader or otherwise). Also included are a number of helpful information sheets on important topics that may apply to your business.

Purchase of the Legally Healthy Package is subject to the following Terms of Purchase. Please read them carefully. By continuing to use your purchase, you are agreeing to be legally bound by them. If you have any questions at all, please contact us as follows:

It is our intention in offering the Legally Healthy Package to provide an affordable legal template package to help new and small businesses with minimal legal risk. It does not however contain ALL the legal documents you may need to run your business, nor does it guarantee you will be absolved of all legal risk by using them (it would be impossible to guarantee this).

While we have taken every care to provide valuable information in the Legally Healthy Package and provide templates suitable for use by most wellness professionals, I note they are generic templates and will require some personalization by you in order to suit your business. They do not take into account your personal circumstances and may not be suitable in all situations, and for all businesses. You may find you only use some of the documents, and not all of them.
The package has been priced to be affordable for new practitioners and small businesses however because it is a lower-cost product purchase (when compared with the cost to have all the legal documents prepared and tailored for you by a lawyer) it is a condition of purchase that you understand Themis Legal cannot be held responsible for the use that you make of the templates and the information provided in the package.
