Therapy centre

A balanced diet is an important cornerstone for the prevention and treatment of various diseases. In individually tailored consultations, we support you in making long-term changes to your eating behaviour and work with you to put together a balanced nutrition plan.

Inpatient nutritional therapy at Zollikerberg Hospital

Following a doctor's prescription, we evaluate your personal nutritional needs together with you. The resulting nutritional therapy is designed in accordance with medical guidelines for the following issues:

  • Malnutrition and undesirable weight loss
  • Artificial nutrition (tube feeding and supplementary nutrition)
  • Diet build-up after surgical interventions and prolonged fasting
  • Food intolerance (lactose intolerance, allergies, etc.)
  • Diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, obesity, coeliac disease, etc.
  • Kidney diseases
