How did Padma get from Tibet to the rest of the world?

Originating in Tibet, Padma is one of many classical formulas saved during the Communist Chinese invasion of Tibet in 1950. The herbal formula was hand carried out of Tibet by a Tibetan doctor, Alexander Badmajew.

Padma, well known as the primary longevity formula in all of Tibetan medicine, consists of nineteen different plants along with camphor and calcium sulfate making it an excellent product for health and longevity.

Eventually this ancient formula was passed to a Swiss pharmaceutical researcher, Karl Lutz, in 1954. He and a team of 150 Swiss doctors have been using it and testing it for decades, where they have seen its effectiveness in treating:

  • memory problems
  • tinnitus
  • visual problems
  • back and joint pain
  • dizziness
  • and fatigue

What makes Padma different from other natural remedies?

Padma promotes the ability to support an underactive immune system or turn down an overactive one through naturally-occuring adaptogens.

What’s more it gives the body the ability to cool many types of inflammation that are the cause of many chronic diseases. Here are some of the primary functions of the way the body uses Padma to:

  • promote and increase healthy blood circulation
  • reduce plaque in veins and arteries (artherosclerosis)
  • relieve angina pain
  • reduce inflammatory conditions like arthritis, thyroiditis, pancreatitis, colitis, dermatitis, gingivitis and so on
  • control bacterial infections in the lungs that can lead to asthma and allergies
  • alleviate viral conditions, like herpes simplex and hepatitis
  • reduce leg pain (intermittent claudication)
  • support the immune system by reducing bronchitis and pneumonia
  • reduce chronic conditions like asthma, diabetes and multiple sclerosis
  • help block the spread of cancer by strengthening the immune system and removing excess toxins–can be used along with chemotherapy and radiation

Are there any other uses for Padma Basic’s® formula?

Preliminary studies show Padma may also be potentially effective in their treatment of:

  • autoimmune diseases such as lupus, psoriasis, Crohn’s disease and rheumatoid arthritis by reducing symptoms of these immune-attacking conditions
  • vascular Alzheimer’s disease (a form of senile dementia) by reducing the plaque in the artieries of the brain
  • reversal of some liver damage due to alcoholism can be normalized
  • sports and exercise injuries can be minimized by reducing the amount of inflammation and increasing circulation
  • peptic duodenal ulcers by interrupting inflammation and irritation to allow faster healing
  • circulation problems due to diabetes by improving circulation and speeding up hard-to-heal wounds

Are there many people in the West who are embracing Eastern medicine?

Tibetan medicine contains much that is of great value to western doctors. The Tibetans have accumulated a prodigious store of knowledge from centuries of experiments and experience.

They have carefully defined which blends of selected ingredients acting together will yield a desired effect. Multi-component formulas have been developed to support many of the body’s normal functions and to restore harmony.

From the CEO of Padma Inc. …“The purpose of Padma Inc. is to bring knowledge of Tibetan medicine to the west. Living in the west, we need safe and proven formulas, convenient and safe packaging and information. PADMA also wants to open western minds to Tibetan medicine. We hope Tibetan clinics will soon open in the west. To achieve understanding in the west, Padma conducts and supports research that proves efficacy in a western scientific way and also sheds light on the mechanisms by which these formulas work.

We are still linked to the tradition of Tibetan medicine. We still use Tibetan techniques with taste and smell as well as western medical techniques. We do both to obtain purest quality. Through clinical studies, we produce models of how Tibetan medicine works.”

–Herbert Schwabl, CEO of Padma Inc. in Switzerland

From an expert on alternative health…

“The complex multi-component herbals produced by Padma, Inc. bridge the divide between very old and very new. They produce whole plant natural formulas to the best modern manufacturing standards for the world community while adhering closely to centuries-old philosophical traditions.”

–Jackie Wootton, Executive Director of The Alternative Medicine Foundation, Bethesda, Maryland

What kind of research has been done on Padma?

The Padma company has dozens of published articles in international scientific peer reviewed journals, spanning two decades. Publications include:

  • Human clinical trials
  • In vitro
  • In vivo experiments

Most of the Padma formulas are supported by the results of rigorous, modern scientific studies. At the First International Congress on Tibetan Medicine in Washington, DC, November 1998, several researchers gave papers reporting independent studies of the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects of Padma products.

Independent scientific research from Europe and Israel demonstrates that the bioflavonoids, polyphenols, and other antioxidant substances in Padma Basic® play a key role in enhancing the structure and function of arteries, including the coronary arteries.

Further preliminary results suggest that Padma Basic® has anti-platelet activity* and an ability to improve fibrinolysis*, a function that helps maintain healthy blood clotting and promotes circulation*.

In addition, studies show that Padma Basic® protects blood lipids from oxidation, important for the maintenance of long term cardiovascular health*.
