Plants are at a distinct disadvantage to other living beings. They cannot flee from their enemies. Plants are threatened by smaller and larger herbivores such as grazing animals, insects, caterpillars and other larvae. To protect themselves from germs like viruses, bacteria and fungus, plants have developed a full range of strategies to ensure survival in spite of their lacking mobility at their location. Man has always made use of these herbal vaccines which have been cultivated over millions of years.
PADMA Inc. also uses the plant's defensive substances. In our medicine the major part of the work for producing a Tibetan recipe is already done by the arrival of herbs, roots and leaves.
