Serum therapy

This therapy is based on the intravenous administration of a combination of vitamins, minerals and trace elements to optimise the enzymatic functions of the cells and favour the capacity of self-healing of the organism.

“In a preventive way, serum therapy is especially indicated in situations where our reserves may be depleted, such as stress, polymedication, pollution, very intense sporting activity or ageing,”

Probably the detoxification of the body is one of the significant applications of this treatment. Still, the truth is that the combination of serums covers a countless range of therapeutic options: health and beauty of skin and hair, fight against obesity, protection of the immune system, regulation of sleep, improvement of digestion, bone strengthening, etc.
