Background to the Evolution of the RNT Update.

Even as far back as 1990, it was becoming evident that opposition to the alternative therapies was mounting.

Clearly, self-empowerment and self-management challenge the stronghold which conventional medicine and the pharmaceutical industry have traditionally held.

Under growing pressure, the Register started lobbying parliaments and working with international organisations to secure a future for the therapies.

The Register of Nutritional Therapists soon acknowledged that if the public were to be properly served, therapists would need to be of a commendable standard.

Equally, if therapists were to argue their right to practise, they would need to be able to prove their abilities with qualifications that would be recognised by the establishment.

Since such qualifications did not exist, the Register set its efforts on fulfilling its main aim, to develop professional qualifications with international recognition.
