What Is Oligotherapy or Trace Minerals Therapy? Oligotherapy uses small doses of individual trace
minerals for therapeutic support, supplementing the necessary minerals for
enzymatic functions. Oligotherapy remedies are catalysts that speed up
metabolism at the cellular level. They provide essential nutrition to stop free
radical activity which destroys bodily tissue. Oligotherapy supplementation
enhances the movement of ions, essential for life, into and out of the cells.
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. Gabriel Bertrand was a French
chemist and biologist. He firstidentified these enzymatic cofactors
approximately 100 years ago and named them “oligo” elements. Later, French
physician Dr. Jacques Menetrier demonstrated that trace mineral elements could
be used in the treatment of biochemical dysfunctions. Oligotherapy is widely
recognized in Europe as a powerful modality for treating a multitude of
diseases, some of which include bacterial infections, cardiovascular disease,
respiratory infections, circulatory disorders and neurological conditions.
How Does Oligotherapy Work? Oligos in Greek means “a very tiny quantity”.
Oligo-elements are trace elements that are very minute doses of minerals. Most
minerals come from metals, except for calcium, fluoride, magnesium, phosphorus,
potassium, selenium, and sulphur which are metalloids (non-metallic). The trace
mineral (oligo) elements are bio-available forms of trace minerals that are
rapidly absorbed sublingually for therapeutic support, supplementing the
necessary minerals for enzymatic functions. These bio-available elements work by
normalizing enzyme and hormonal functions in order to regulate homeostasis of
What Does Oligotherapy Do In
Oligotherapy is a method of providing the body with
the ions that it cannot synthesize. These trace minerals are indispensable for
cellular enzymatic functions. Oligotherapy is a functional therapeutic modality
that requires the use of trace elements in precisely measured, small doses in a
highly bioavailable form. These trace elements are co-factors in a multitude of
biochemical reactions where they accelerate the speed of these reactions without
ever modifying the important equilibrium that exists and that must reign within
the body to maintain optimum health.
The metabolism of cells cannot be
reduced to a single reaction that is independent from the rest of the body.
It is critical for enzymatic function
to keep the correct balance of trace elements throughout the body. Any
deficiency in any element will cause a functional disorder - even if no physical
cause can be identified. The person may not feel well even though their blood
tests show now clear signs of issues. In the development of pathology,
there is always an intermediate period between the movement simple functional
disorder to a actual disease or pathology. Treating a person in this earlier
state between health and disease, based on their symptoms can prevent a
degenerative disease or the organ damage that will follow.
How Are Trace Minerals Lost? A person becomes
deficient in trace minerals and will benefit from pligotherapy when the burden
for trace minerals auses them to be used UP faster than they are being absorbed.
This is how a person can become depleted of trace minerals:
Change of seasons
Chelating substances – compounds which we ingest and attach themselves
to the trace elements which render the catalytic effect inert
Incorrect use of herbal medicines or food supplements.
Rhythm of life out of balance, e.g. sleep
Too little or too much exercise
Recreating Balance With Oligotherapy An important factor
besides diet that impacts the efficient absorption of trace minerals is
that they are very reactive. Unless they are in the correct form, they could put
other minerals in the body out of balance which leads to the malfunction
of cells, degeneration and disease.
minerals also can sometimes act as antagonists to each other. It is important
when taking trace elements that they are taken in the correct synergy and
balance. Below are a few examples of minerals and trace elements being out
of balances and the possible health consequences.
