SHA was born as a result of Alfredo Bataller Parietti’s personal experience. For many years he suffered from health problems that affected his quality of life. Finally, in the face of a critical diagnosis, he was lucky enough to see a doctor with a great understanding of nutrition and natural therapy, who enabled Mr. Bataller to regain his health through the curative power of appropriate nutrition.
He then became committed to sharing and disseminating all of this valuable knowledge and, with the support of his family, he created a unique project where the wisdom of the ages meets the latest advances of Western medicine.
