Have you ever heard of oligotherapy? This natural therapeutic approach has existed for several decades and is attracting an increasingly large audience. Find out what Oligotherapy is, its benefits and how to integrate it into your daily life.

What is Oligotherapy?

To better understand Oligotherapy, let’s start by defining the term … “Oligo” means “small” or “not abundant” in Greek. We find this prefix in “trace elements”; these chemical elements are present in our body in minimal quantities. In the 1930’s it was Doctor Jacques Ménétrier that first used this designation.

Oligotherapy is the fact of using these trace elements in a therapeutic approach to balance the metabolism and thus guarantee its proper functioning.

The importance of Trace Elements:

Trace elements are the basis of Oligotherapy. Although present in minimal quantities in our body, they are absolutely essential for its functioning. There are 12 essential trace elements, including Iron, Zinc, Copper, Iodine and Fluorine. All are mineral nutrients.

These trace elements play a vital role in the body. They are involved in many chemical reactions; act on our metabolism, cell renewal and immune defense.

Our body does not know how to manufacture these trace elements, which are essential for its functioning. It is therefore necessary as we age to provide them with a  varied and balanced diet. Unbalanced or poor-quality meals can quickly lead to micronutrient deficiencies.

To avoid or alleviate these deficiencies, Oligotherapy is then a major ally! Its remedies complement food intake, to restore balance in the body and guarantee its proper functioning.

The benefits of Oligotherapy

It can help soothe many symptoms related to micronutrient deficiencies, including:

  • Fatigue
  • Stress
  • Insomnia
  • Weaken immune system
  • Skin disorders
  • Infections or benign inflammations
  • Hair loss

Whom to turn to when starting with oligotherapy?

To get started with Oligotherapy, it is essential to define what your deficiencies are. They are the ones who will determine the remedies to use to rebalance your body.

For this, we advise you to turn to a naturopath trained in oligotherapy. He will help you define your needs and thus maximize the beneficial effects of this natural therapeutic approach.

To find a Naturopath in your area, you can consult the directory of the ANPQ, Association of Professional Naturopaths of Quebec.

Using Oligotherapy daily

Once you have defined your deficiencies, it is necessary to preserve your body’s balance by making changes in your diet but also by adopting natural food supplements of first quality.

The Oligocan line of trace elements has been designed to help you rebalance your body easily and effectively.  Just take a teaspoon of the remedy recommended by your practitioner, once a day with a little water 

Oligotherapy is a gentle and natural therapeutic approach.  By combining it with a healthy and balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle, you will give your body all it needs to stay in shape or to get back in shape!
