How Oligotherapy Works
Almost all biological reactions require enzymes (biological catalysts) in order to occur at the rates the body needs for health and survival. Many enzymes depend on specific mineral cofactors for proper functioning. These minerals need to be present in extremely low concentrations, but they are absolutely vital to bio-regulation. These bioavailable forms of trace minerals are rapidly absorbed and work by normalizing enzyme and hormonal functions in order to regulate homeostasis in the body.
Supplying these needed mineral cofactors at precise concentration unblocks diseased metabolic pathways, thus allowing the body’s healing mechanism to operate. Oligo-elements may also prepare the patient to respond more readily and successfully to other modalities.
Oligotherapy is a simple, non invasive way to provide the patient with vital trace elements that are necessary for cellular function.”

The ionized trace elements used within oligotherapy include bismuth, cobalt, fluoride, copper chromium, iodine, lithium, magnesium, manganese, molybdenum, phosphorus, potassium, selenium, sulfur, and zinc (as well as various combinations). These supplements are low concentrations of specially prepared elements that are vital to the regulation of various enzymatic functions. These “oligo-elements” (trace minerals) when administered work at the cellular level to supply needed mineral co-factors at precise concentrations to unblock diseased metabolic pathways, thus allowing the body’s healing mechanisms to operate.
Keeping the correct balance of trace elements throughout an organism is essential for enzymatic function, and a deficiency in any element may lead to a functional disorder. Oligo-elements can be found in food, but also in pills and powdered drinkable solutions. It is recommended to take them 15 minutes before eating and to ensure that a 15-20 minute break is taken between doses.
