Adaptation medicine – from the depth of the centuries
In the process of evolution, man would not only find internal reserves for self-preservation, but would also use various natural plants and herbs with adaptogenic properties. Adaptogens are known to have been widely used in folk medicine in Siberia, China, Altai, Tibet, and other countries of South-East Asia. References to them can be found in the earliest treatises on traditional Tibetan and Indian medicine. The messages of ancient healers are as convincing as ever even in the modern scientific environment. There is a branch of medicine that studies adaptive capabilities of human beings to environmental conditions and develops various ways to increase these capabilities.
