Study nutrition – the future of health

Diet is the cornerstone of our health, the foundation of our well-being. It determines how much energy we have every day, protects against illness and keeps the body in shape. It deserves all the more care and attention. Yet in practice, things are different. Nutrition issues are complex. You can quickly lose your overview of them. The person who keeps everything in sight: the nutritionist. Their experience and expertise draw on comprehensive nutrition training. Do you want to become an expert in a healthy and balanced lifestyle, too? Our nutritionist training in Switzerland lays the foundation for this.

Training nutritionists, the areas of focus relating to health

Anyone who wants to be a nutritionist must master the basics of health. And here, our professional nutrition coach training comes into play. Our experts will introduce you to the secrets of a responsible lifestyle, competently and insightfully. By studying nutrition, we train you to be a contact person for all matters relating to nutrition, and teach you to pass on your expertise appropriately.

Nutritionist training, well advised on matters relating to illness

A balanced diet is not a matter of course. It is a challenge that a layperson is often not up to mastering. The result: obesity, metabolic disorders, diabetes, cardiovascular disease or gout. At the same time, chronic digestive problems such as coeliac disease, Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis threaten to raise their heads.

During the nutritionist training, you will learn how to recognise diet-related disorders. Together with the patient and in collaboration with the consulting doctor, you will develop a sound nutrition and exercise concept, tailor-made for their physical ailments. You will motivate the patient, point out where they are going wrong and mobilise their resources. With your nutritionist training, you will pave the way to a more energy-filled life.

At the nutrition coach training in Zurich, concepts for healthy nutrition are a central topic

Nutritionist training in Switzerland, promoting well-being

When training as a nutritionist, it is not just about looking after people when they fall ill. You will also work to promote health more generally. In lectures, seminars and workshops, you can pass on your expertise and experience to laypeople. In schools, for example, you will raise awareness of the classroom benefits of being aware of one’s lifestyle, such as performance and concentration. In our nutritionist training, you will learn how to prepare and convey the complex content so it can be understood.

Learn connected thinking – Nutritionist training at the Swiss Nutrition Academy

The science of nutrition is not a static subject. It is brought to life by its complexity. It can only fully unfold its expertise if it is tightly networked with other scientific disciplines. Interdisciplinary thinking is all the more important for our nutrition coach training. Indispensable for training as a nutritionist: a scientific basis, particularly with biochemistry and anatomy. However, the social sciences also form part of a successful training course for a nutritionist.
