Bronwyn's assessment is quite correct. When I was studying natural
hygiene here in the US I had to take a class on the legal implications of
making statements like those that Steven made, which would be
considered illegally dispensing medical advice according to the AMA.
Each state is different in their specifics, but in general, for a non-MD,
unless those types of statements are preceded with "If it were me..." or
"Here's what I did..." it can be considered illegally practicing medicine
here in the US, and the person could be prosecuted.

In addition, a non-MD cannot make statements insinuating a
guarantee or promise as to the outcome of the course of action

The AMA is VERY specific as how a non-MD can relay information,
right down to terminology that is illegal for some without an MD
license to use (for example, "diagnose," "prescribe," among others). If
it were me, I'd look up the laws of your state and country to be clear
on precisely what is allowable under the law. Good luck! xo
