It is the most common hormonal disorder that may exist from the start of menstruation and cause reproductive problems at childbearing age.
Possible symptoms of Polycystic Ovary Syndrome:

Possible onset causes:
• Hormonal imbalance
• Hereditary factors
Among the factors we investigate concerning the occurrence of the syndrome are:
- Androgen, i.e. male hormones, levels
- Insulin levels
- The quality of one’s nutrition, such as high consumption of meat, saturated fats, foods with white flour and rice
- The malfunction of the liver that detoxifies our sexual hormones
How the Nutritional Therapy Athens Clinic can help
The discovery of the factors that cause hormonal disorders is a big step in the relief from this syndrome that bothers many women. For this purpose we record your full health history and recommend special functional tests which will reveal dysfunctions in the cells of the hormonal system and the detoxifying mechanisms.
Personalized Nutritional Strategy
After the diagnostic assessments comes the development of an individualized nutritional strategy, including special nutritional supplements and suggestions for a healthy lifestyle. We systematically incorporate in the Nutritional Plan foods rich in fiber, like legumes, fruit, vegetables and their juices, nuts, crushed seeds. Also Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids in balance, selected amino acids and vitamins, among others. We recommend that you avoid fatty meat and dairy, fast food, coffee and alcohol, among others that seem to be involved in hormonal balance. Bioflavonoids which are abundant in citrus fruits, garlic, onions, cherries, fennel, sage seem to help the action of estrogens.
