Diet therapy and nutritional prophylaxis

Online course description

Diet therapy serves as a natural means of health restoration by introducing ‘tailor-made’ nutritional intervention, tailored to a specific disease entity. Treatment is based on planning and implementing nutrition to support the healing process and eliminate a patient's ailments. One of the most important elements of the recovery process is the involvement of the patient, who is responsible for implementing the recommendations formulated by a specialist - dietitian.
Healthy nutrition is effective in preventing lifestyle diseases. The progressive development of science and research on nutrition and the influence of nutrients on the human body made it possible for us to formulate dietary recommendations. Getting to know them and applying them in everyday life enables faster recovery, reduces the risk of complications and certifies a higher quality of life for the sick.

The certificate we issue does not authorize any practice of a profession, it does not replace a university diploma or other documents required by law in order to practice the profession. It does, however, confirm the fulfilment of the knowledge and skills, as well as working on one’s own development, which in itself is of value and may constitute a competitive advantage on the labour market.
