What is Oligotherapy and how does it work?

Oligotherapy provides the body with ions that can not be synthesized and are indispensable for cellular enzymatic functions.

This functional therapeutic modality requires using elements with a precision of small doses in a highly bioavailable form.

These trace elements are cofactors in a multitude of biochemical reactions. They accelerate the speed of these reactions without modifying the critical balance that exists, which must reign in the body to maintain optimal health. As a result of all this, there is a general decrease in the function of the organ (fatigue, weakness, lack of dynamism, etc.), followed by the appearance of functional disorders caused by the malfunction of cells that, in the long term these disorders they result in many serious diseases. This sequence of events is related to developing the so-called “diseases of civilization”: cancer, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, rheumatism, and allergies.

In chemical biology, Oligotherapy is a therapeutic method that consists of administering the necessary trace elements for the proper functioning of the cells. There are three primary schools: Reactive Oligotherapy, Diathesis-based, Pharmacological Oligotherapy, which provides high-dose minerals (with the risk of causing some imbalances), and Bionutrition Oligotherapy, which consists of the contribution of all the trace elements that the body requires in doses physiological, to restore the biochemical integrity of the person and the biological balance.

Oligo-elements of Gabriel Bertrand, a French chemist and biologist, was the first to identify these enzymatic cofactors about 100 years ago, naming them “Oligo” elements. Later, the French physician Jacques Menetrier demonstrated that the trace elements could be used to treat biochemical dysfunctions, being thus recognized throughout Europe as a powerful modality for treating a multitude of diseases.

How does Oligotherapy work?

Almost all biological reactions require enzymes (biological catalysts) to produce the body’s rates for health and survival. Many enzymes depend on specific mineral cofactors for proper functioning. These minerals must be present in low concentrations, but they are vital for bioregulation.

The ionized trace elements used in Oligotherapy include bismuth, cobalt, fluorine, chromium, copper, iodine, lithium, magnesium, manganese, molybdenum, phosphorus, and potassium, selenium, sulfur, and zinc (as well as various combinations). These supplements in low concentrations are vital for regulating different enzymatic functions, unblocking the diseased metabolic pathways, and allowing them to operate the healing mechanisms in the body.
