For some people insomnia may mean that they wake up at night and can’t go back to sleep and for some it may mean that they cannot go to sleep at all. This excruciating phenomenon occurs because of a disorder in the nervous system due to poor nutrition or loss of nutrients, because of stress and poor mental condition. Many times behind insomnia we find depression, panic attacks, anxiety and other mental disorders.
How the Nutritional Therapy Athens Clinic can help
When we discover the factors that contribute to insomnia we have already made a very important step. For this purpose we record your full health history and recommend special bloodless functional tests which will show malfunctions in a deep cellular level, like hypoglycemia, low levels of melatonin, nutrient deficiencies, like folic acid deficiency, among others.
Personalizes Nutritional Strategy
After the diagnostic assessments comes the development of an individualized nutritional strategy, with foods rich in magnesium, calcium and vitamin B6, that have calming properties. Special nutritional supplements are considered for the individual needs of each person and we make suggestions for a healthy lifestyle. After checking for any food intolerances and allergies we systematically incorporate in the Dietary Plan foods that help, like legumes, seafood, eggs, vegetables, nuts, seeds, and selected amino acids, minerals and vitamins, among others.
