PADMA 28 for circulatory disorders

  • Tingling sensation
  • Formication
  • Heaviness and feeling tightness in the legs and arms
  • Numbness of hands and feet
  • Leg cramps

The herbal medicine PADMA 28 is used at first signs of circulatory problems, like tingling sensation, formication, feeling heaviness and tightness in legs and arms, hands and feet going to sleep, and leg cramps. It has been approved in Switzerland as a medicine since 1977 and is produced according to a tried and true recipe of Tibetan Medicine. Per the tradition of Tibetan Medicine, the camphor formulation (Tibetan Gabur), on which PADMA 28 is based, is supposed to stimulate blood circulation, to inhibit inflammation and, for respiratory tract infections, to have antibiotic properties.

The over twenty-two plants used in PADMA 28 contain secondary plant substances, many of with an antioxidant potential. Besides these valuable medicinal plants, Padma 28 also contains a mineral compound. In the PADMA formulation collection, the Gabur formula is the 28th formulation. Therefore, this drug is named PADMA 28.

COMPOSITION

The effect of PADMA 28 is created by a variety of valuable medicinal plants and is caused by the interaction of many ingredients.

PADMA 28 contains, among others, the following groups of substances:

  • Essential oils (fragrances and aromatic substances, terpenes): They have anti-microbial and local analgesic effects.
  • Vegetable dyes from flowers, leaves, and stems (flavonoids): They support immune function, are antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant.
  • Tannins: They are anti-inflammatory and antioxidant.
  • D-camphor invigorates circulation.

Under the principles and findings of Tibetan Medicine, PADMA 28 is composed of main and auxiliary components. The individual components are a mix of low doses and achieve their therapeutic effect on circulatory problems in an additive, synergistic, and antagonistic way.

The minor components modulate the effects of the main components and intercept their possible adverse effects. The interaction of the components and the low dosage are the reasons PADMA 28 is well-tolerated.

WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT

CIRCULATORY DISORDERS

The circulation takes place throughout the body and is a key element for health. Therefore, a circulatory disorder can be felt in different parts of the body: In the arteries of the leg (e.g., arterial occlusive disease), in the feet (e.g., in diabetic foot), in arteries of the internal organs (heart, kidneys), in the arteries of the pelvis (uterus, ovaries, penis), in the coronary arteries (in case of Angina pectoris or the brain, e.g., memory problems, dementia).

Circulatory disorders of the veins, such as heavy legs and tightness of the legs, can occur. The first signs of circulatory problems are often a tingling sensation, formication in the legs and arms, falling asleep of hands and feet, and leg cramps. To prevent more serious illnesses, take these complaints seriously. An unbalanced and high-fat diet, smoking, stress, and a lack of exercise can increase circulatory disorders and should be avoided.

A healthy blood circulation is important for your health

At the beginning of a circulatory disorder, especially the micro-circulation is affected – the small and smallest blood vessels, like arterioles, capillaries, and venules. The blood flows in these into the cell range and supplies the cells with oxygen and nutrients, and the immune cells are supplied by micro vessels. The blood also takes waste and toxins away from the cells to the detoxification organs, so they can be excreted.

A healthy blood flow from the heart to the smallest blood vessels is important. Tibetan Medicine recommends exercise in fresh air and a balanced diet for a long and healthy life. Your diet should be rich in vegetables and fruits, because they contain many important secondary plant substances (antioxidants), which protect the blood vessels.

CHRONIC INFLAMMATION

The modern way of life brings progress, convenience, and enjoyment. However, this often also means a burden on the organism, because we are daily confronted with stressful situations. In our body, so-called “free radicals” arise; these are aggressive oxygen compounds. They damage cells and activate “stress hormones.” Eventually, the immune system is weakened by them.

Free radicals are formed in the normal metabolism of people, and every day, many free radicals are formed. Mental and physical stress, stressful environmental factors (ozone, smog etc.), nutritional errors (too greasy and too sweet food and food additives), Tobacco smoke, and illnesses (diabetes mellitus, high blood pressure) make the body cope with additional enormous amounts of free radicals.

A healthy body can cope with free radicals and produces oxidative substances through its antioxidant mechanisms and renders them harmless; it detoxifies itself so to speak.

Support for the body’s own protective mechanisms

If there is too much oxidative stress in the body over a long time, or if too many free radicals are being released, it leads to a constant mild irritation and activation of the immune system. Over time, this can lead to a chronic, subliminal state of inflammation throughout the body. It is call low-level inflammation.

If this inflammation develops on the walls of the blood vessels, it can lead to the narrowing of the vessels and circulatory disorders. Plant-based protective substances can protect the body from harmful free radicals and have an anti-inflammatory effect. The substance mixtures from Tibetan Medicine provide such plant-based neutralizing substances.
