Endometriosis is a common chronic inflammatory disease of the female reproductive system, regardless of age, where the uterus’ membrane walls exit to the pelvis, the intestines, the urethra or the ovaries. Pain in the pelvis and in particular period or ovulation pains is the most common sign of disease. There may also be acute pain during sexual intercourse and bowel movements, and heavy menstruation. Infertility is lurking!
How the Nutritional Therapy Athens Clinic can help
We try to stop the development of the disease and to alleviate the symptoms. For this purpose we record your full health history and recommend special functional tests that will reveal any dysfunctions in a very deep cellular level. We check the function of the detoxifying mechanisms to see the degree of influence of endogenous estrogens, the gastrointestinal system, your antioxidant capacity and the immune system. Testing your saliva at home in a 24hour basis helps establish, in an easy and simple way, the existence of estrogen dominance, an important factor for the overall health of a woman.
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. We systematically incorporate in the dietary plan foods rich in fiber, like legumes, vegetables, nuts, crushed seeds, whole grain foods in specific quantities, avoiding sugary foods and drinks, coffee, dairy, large consumption of red meat, alcohol. We can also incorporate in appropriate doses Omega 3, Omega 6 fatty acids, as well as selected amino acids, minerals, trace elements, vitamins E and C, among others.
