How the Nutritional Therapy Athens Clinic can help
We want to discover what is causing the fibroids to appear and restore hormonal function as much as possible. For this purpose we record your full health history and recommend special functional tests that will reveal any dysfunctions of the hormonal system and the detoxifying mechanisms, among others. It is recommended to test your saliva at home in a 24hour basis, in order to establish, in an easy and simple way, the existence of estrogen dominance, an important factor for the overall health of a woman.
