    Traditional colleges are typically being guided by the medical industry and funding comes from sources that can skew a good education in nutrition. Typical dietitians and nutritionist that graduate from these schools are not learning up to date nutritional information that works in the real world. They are pushing diets that are mainstream thought that has been proven time and again to lack good solid scientific results. Modern allopathic western medicine is failing miserably everywhere. The statistics show this and the direction being done and continuously proposed is to "TREAT THE SYMPTOMS" not the root causes of disease. The new Health Abuse Law that was just signed by Obama does nothing for prevention of cancer for instance. It is all directed toward finding ways to treat the symptoms. Cancer is the only disease that uses a 5 year survival rate as the definition of being CURED of a disease. The reason is that if you get early detection, the five years start early in the disease, so they can claim a cure. It's all politics, not real health solutions.

    Nutrition has been and continues to be the right solution for true healing. Result oriented methods are what you need to go after. Become educated on what is real and works. Nutritional Therapy has gone through many changes and is fast becoming a very viable way to approach illnesses, especially degenerative illnesses that medical science has failed miserably. There are schools you can attend that are excellent, but to choose the right one, you have to consider your background and education that you now have first.

    good luck to you
