    After more than a decade of international success in the field of health, wellness and beauty, the Espace Chenot at L’ Albereta in Italy, introduces new programs and services which promote strong health, vitality and balance within our body and mind.  We focus on a holistic and systemic screening method.

    MEDICAL DEPARTMENT – DIAGNOSTICS

    Oxidative Stress Assessment

    This innovative diagnostic test measures the level of the total biological oxidation in

    the body against the efficacy of its own antioxidant defense systems to equilibrate the presence of oxidized toxic compounds.

    When this balance is upset, a condition known as oxidative stress, the cellular damage

    and the ageing process can be greatly accelerated.

    The test allows optimizing antioxidant treatment, monitoring its efficacy and just as importantly, avoiding the deleterious effects of antioxidant misuse.

    Minerals and Heavy Metal Intoxication Analysis

    This revolutionary noninvasive method is used to detect directly and in real time the

    bioavailability of trace elements and heavy metals that exist within the tissues. Re- mineralization treatments and chelation procedures are implemented to detoxify the body.

    Arterial Age Assessment

    This non-invasive test provides an accurate and user independent method for

    measuring arterial function and assessing vascular aging.

    This is achieved through the measurements of the stiffness of the arteries, the central blood pressure and the pulse wave reflection coming back from the arteries to the heart.

    The test is as simple as a blood pressure measurement and it allows for precise individual treatments optimization.

    Measurement of Advanced Glycation Endproducts (AGEs)

    This highly technological diagnostic test measures the tissue accumulation of Advanced Glycation Endproducts in real time. These products play a key role in the development of age related chronic diseases.

    Protein glycation is a highly acknowledged aging factor.

    It affects blood vessels, vital organs, alters skin quality, is responsible for sunspots,

    Cataract.

    The detection of increased AGEs enables appropriate treatments and prescription for lifestyle modifications including a diet plan to break the bonds that connect proteins and sugars.

Roughly trapezoidal in shape, it measures around 10 km east to west and 7 km north to south and has about 34 kilometers (21 mi) of coastline. It is almost entirely mountainous.
    Main feature – thermal spas that cater mostly to European (especially German) and Asian tourists eager to enjoy the fruits of the island’s natural volcanic activity, its thermal hot springs, and its volcanic mud.

    Thermal treatments practiced on Ischia are:
    mud therapybalneotherapy (carried out either individually in baths or collectively in pools), cave therapy andinhalation therapy. Other therapies such as massage or medical gymnastics can also be added to make these therapies more effective and long-lasting.

    Thermal Parks:

    • NEGOMBO in Lacco Ameno is a favorite place for thermal pools. The ten thermal pools are made of concrete and are found in the mountainside, so that they blend in with nature. There is also a beach so you can swim in the sea, too. Negombo is a thermal pool park, and you don’t need a reservation. You can just show up, pay the fee and enter. If you want massages or some other personal treatment though, you should call ahead and make a reservation.
    • POSEIDON is the most famous and largest of the thermal parks. It is lovely, set next to the sea where you can swim, and has about 20 pools of different temperatures, some with waterfall or hydro massage. The thermal pools here are typical pools fed by natural hot springs. There are gardens, restaurants, and a bar. Poseidon Gardens is on the Bay of Citara, on Ischia’s west side.
