The Vivo Sano Foundation is an independent and private non- profit organisation, which is health orientated.  It was officially established in 2011.

Our objective is to create a healthier society, where people feel good in all aspects of their lives, enjoy good physical and mental health, maintain constructive relationships and live in a healthy environment. In order to achieve this, we act on different levels:
..
       
  Health Education  
    Promoting healthy habits for the body, mind and our surroundings.  
   
  We provide free talks and a variety of seminars aimed at the general public.
    Via our web pages, blogs, social networking and online television, we   disseminate information concerning global health.
    We publish educational books and also have our own magazine, Vivo Sano.
     
 
  New health model  
    We are promoting a new health care model which consists of effective and non-aggressive therapies.  
   
  We consolidate professional input via congresses and expeditions, both nationally and internationally.
  We facilitate the access to this model for all citizens, focusing on the care of those who are less fortunate than others.
     
 
  Political Actions  
    We are vigilant so as to ensure that institutions and legislators prioritize citizens´ health before any other matter.  
   
  We initiate awareness campaigns on both national and international levels, such as Escuela sin wifi, (Schools without Wi-Fi) Hogar Sin Tóxicos (A toxin -free household) and la Semana sin pesticidas (Pesticides action week).
  We establish meetings with institutions and political representatives on a national and European level.

Hogar sin Toxicos Campaign
 
The exposure to toxic substances within the home could be the origin of multiple health problems. These can range from cancer to asthma, and even reproductive problems or cognitive impairments in children. Hogar sin Toxicos claims to prevent these problems by reducing the toxins to which we can become exposed within the home. See more.


Escuela sin wifi (School without Wi-Fi)
 
Escuela sin wifi   aims to ensure that children in education have safe and secure internet access, with no harm being done to their health. To achieve this, we stand for a rational use of technology, we insist on the application of the precautionary principle and we demand that the Wi-Fi in educational centres is substituted for another form of technology which doesn’t risk any unnecessary exposure to potentially dangerous electromagnetic fields.

Documental La letra pequeña (In small print documentary)
 
In “La letra pequeña”, we teach you how the chemical substances with which we are in contact every day can have an affect our health.  A lot of these substances have a direct effect on our hormonal system, altering its function. These substances are scientifically labelled endocrine disruptors. See more.


Congresses and conferences
 
We are promoting a new health care model based on effective and non-aggressive therapies.  For this, we arrange congresses and conferences in order to consolidate the health care professionals and facilitate access to this new model for the general public, focusing in particular on the care of the most vulnerable of people.
