How Nutritional Therapy Athens Clinic can help you
Our main concern is to discover the cause of the Dementia. We record the full Health history and eating habits in order to recommend special functional tests that will reveal any dysfunctions of the hormonal system, the presence of heavy metals and other toxic substances, possible nutrient deficiencies, any hidden food intolerances, among others.
Personalized Nutritional Strategy
After the diagnostic assessments we lay out the individualized nutritional strategy, including special nutritional supplements and suggestions for a proper way of life and appropriate light exercise, while avoiding bad habits. We incorporate more natural foods in the dietary plan and nutrients like acetyl- l carnitine, inositol, choline, beta carotene, folic acid, B6, 12, vit C, evening primrose oil and other.
