How the Nutritional Therapy Athens Clinic can help
Our main concern is to discover what is causing the anemia. We record your full health history and recommend special functional tests that will reveal dysfunctions in the hormonal or the gastrointestinal systems, possible nutrient disorders, any food allergies, and the presence of heavy metals, among others.
Personalized Nutritional Strategy
After the diagnostic assessments we develop the Personalized Nutritional Strategy, including special nutritional supplements and suggestions for a proper lifestyle. We incorporate in the Nutritional Plan foods that contribute to the reduction of anemia, like -if we wish to increase ferum and vitamin B12- green vegetables, apples, asparagus, broccoli, prunes, peas, while avoiding foods that obstruct their assimilation, like almonds, chocolate, dairy, soft drinks, coffee. Vitamins like C, B6, Β2, Β12, Β1, Α, E, appropriate minerals, herbs, among others. We support digestion and assimilation with natural ingredients like hydrochloride betaine.
