What is Oligotherapy?

Catalysts that speed up metabolism

Oligotherapy uses individual trace minerals for therapeutic support, supplementing the necessary minerals for enzymatic functions.  Oligotherapy remedies are considered as catalysts that speed up metabolism at the cellular level.  Oligotherapy remedies also provide essential nutrition to stop free radical activity which destroy body tissue.

Oligotherapy supplementation in believed to enhance the movement of ions, essential for life, into and out of the cell.  They work by optimizing the ionic channels on the surface of cells allowing flow to occur.

The origins of Oligotherapy come from the research done by Bertrand at the Pasture Institute and subsequently continued by Jacques Menetrier, M.D. in 1944.
