According to several reputable job review websites and current employees at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, it is a HORRIBLE decision to work for that company. There are large and unannounced layoffs by the company which can in turn cause serious problems in one’s life. The other reasons are because of low pay, horrible work conditions, reprehensible business practices, and a negligent management/executive team. You’ve been warned, so beware and research more about the company you apply for, especially if it’s the Institute for Integrative Nutrition.
A New York school that certifies students online to become holistic “health coaches” is taking an internet commenter to court in Concord for posting what the school says were false and defamatory statements on a complaints website. Google has removed several results related to the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in response to a legal request, according to a note that appeared last week along with search results.
I guess I’ll be receiving some sort of litigation soon since I post honest & critical reviews of this reprehensible corporation which touts itself as an educational institution, I’m ready. My name and location are at the top of the blog (E. Rosenberg, NYC, etc.).

Stephen Barrett, M.D., at CredentialWatch.org has posted a thorough and critical review about the Institute for Integrative Nutrition:
I have serious doubts about the validity of its teachings…. It would be interesting to know what percentage of IIN graduates are able to earn a living as a “health counselor.’ I suspect that the percentage is small….. I personally would not trust someone who lacks scientific training to tailor diets based on dietary needs or who relies on IIN’s teachings to counsel patients. Nor do I believe that “counseling” a few clients is enough to enable students to provide quality advice or to know their limitations. Rosenthal’s approach might inspire some people to improve their diet by moving closer to the Dietary Guidelines for Americans. However, they may also absorb misconceptions about diet, health, and disease that will ultimately harm them…..

A complain by a former student on ComplaintsBoard.com:
The distance learning class all the students try to sell you products that they are selling through network marketing companies. All the knowledge learned you can research on your own. They’re not a school that has accreditation. You can become Board Certified through another agency who the founder has the same last name as the creator of Integrative Nutrition….

The Institute for Integrative Nutrition is trying to file a lawsuit against this reviewer, and they’ve tried to use a court order to “fascistly” force ComplaintsBoard.com to remove the post but they’ve stood their ground and are doing the right thing so far which is to protect reviewers, honest reviews, and not fall victim to a stereotypical evil corporation trying to destroy any negativity about them.
Allow me to introduce myself and explain my reason for creating this blog. My name is Ezekiel Rosenberg and I live in New York City, Manhattan, Midtown to be precise. The Institute for Integrative Nutrition makes legal moves which seem extremely fascist, and their organization/company is comparable to a dictatorship. I am here to make others aware of their practices and to help bring forth honest, critical reviews which I.N.N is trying to remove by suing websites, individuals, and using court orders against Google to remove negative search results about themselves. I’m expecting a lawsuit once this blog reaches them, I’m not hiding.
