Our operations started in 1974 with the founding of Kristiina Medical Centre Oy. At the time, this centre was the only clinic in Finland that utilised nutritional care to treat patients in addition to traditional medicine. Today the Antioxidant Clinics operate in three cities: Helsinki, Tampere, and Oulu.
Our mission statement is to produce versatile medical and healthcare services that maintain good health and prevent illness. Our nutritional care forms a part of the patient’s comprehensive care. Our operations are guided by the general principles in the field of healthcare, guidelines, and laws and regulations.
In planning the care, the customer’s medical history and current situation are assessed, and a detailed treatment plan is devised. The care process includes a doctor’s appointment, laboratory tests, and – if required – a meeting with a nutritional therapist or counselling by a nurse. The need for control visits depends on the patient’s individual needs. We provide our customers with unique expertise and time. Our aim is to promote human health by using extensive medical means.
Nutritional care is one area of medicine. Patient care is based on medical laboratory measurements and on forming a complete picture of the situation. In addition to traditional lab tests, nutritional care measures the levels of vitamins, micronutrients, fatty acids, and analyses other nutritional factors. Most nutritional measurements are categorised in the WHO’s ICD-10 classification system. Nutritional care involves providing recommendations regarding food and lifestyle, and giving guidance concerning the necessary supplements.
Nutritional care is administered together with other medical care. In case the patient is also treated at other medical facilities, is important that all the doctors and healthcare professionals participating in the patient’s care are aware of the currently employed forms of nutritional care.
The patient ombudsman for the Helsinki and Tampere clinics is laboratorian Kirsi Koistinen, and Katariina Viitaluoma is the ombudsman in Oulu.
New patients must make a reservation by telephone to our centralised booking number at +3589 6226 4545 or at your own clinic, as the nurses will have lots of important and useful information to give you at that time. You can also leave a call request.Book an appointment
