We rejoice at frost only when it comes in the form a good old man with a beard, in a fur coat and with a bag full of gifts. In in all other cases, cold is the eternal enemy of mankind. To escape from him, people wrap themselves in fur coats, down jackets, put on thermal underwear. But even this does not save, frostbite during the winter holidays noses and cheeks no count!
However, it turns out we wear a stove that protects from the cold, inside of you. Yes, yes, in your body!
Why our old ancestors did not die during the glacial period? After all, they did not always sit by the fire, wrapping themselves in skins – you need there was food and firewood. Why do Tibetan lamas not freeze sitting on a glacier in the mountains in a dilapidated cotton rags and at the same time managing to dry wet towels on my body?

If they can do this, then the human body is by nature resistant to cold. But how do you find a way to incorporate our inner a stove?
Biologist Rinad Minvaleev and mathematician Anatoly Ivanov not only found her, but also found a theoretical justification for this mystical miracle.
The secret to self-regulation of the body was hidden in Tibet. Buddhist monks have been practicing one of the directions for thousands of years. yoga called tummo. This is a self-regulation technique. an organism that makes it resistant to cold.
The most famous adherent of this direction of secret knowledge is the Buddhist monk Milarepa, who lived in Tibet in the eleventh century, once half a year spent in an ice cave littered with an avalanche. He so sang in verses that saved his method: “Why do I noble silk and fine soft wool? The best clothing is a warming fire. bliss tummo … ”
– The word “tummo” is not used in everyday speech for designations of the ordinary concept of heat, – Minvaleev notes. – This is a technical term for mystical terminology. The word “tummo” in secret teaching means “light flame.”
… Minvaleev mastered the methods of tummo in the Himalayas, already knowing why they work. After all, he found the secret of conquering the cold back in Russia, in the studies of the former gulag prisoner professor Karl Trincher.
– It was a wonderful Soviet scientist, an Austrian in origin, his forgotten discovery is worthy of the Nobel Prize, – tells Rinad Sultanovich. – He noticed that the laboratory animals with a lack of oxygen increases the temperature in the lungs. And he made a brilliant conclusion: “The lungs are the only organ where fats are, reacting with oxygen, burn directly. Without any enzymes. ”
Tibetan monks and yogis have known this secret for thousands of years. Driving breathing, they learned to start the “stove” in the lungs. In conditions highlands, where there is little oxygen in the air, it’s easier to do, but Russian scientists have learned how to control body temperature and on plains. Returning to St. Petersburg, Minvaleev and Ivanov demonstrated their skill in public: at twenty degrees frost in an hour and a half they dried on their naked bodies wet towels!

Tibetan monks did not suggest that Rinad and Anatoly comprehended The secret of tummo was first in theory, and mathematics helped.
The candidate of physical and mathematical sciences Anatoly Ivanov calculated that oxidative processes in the lungs on which depends body heat production can go more intensively. Using laws of thermodynamics, proved that the main “stove” of the body should be in the center of the body and not on the periphery that our cold reflexes – muscle tremors and “goose bumps” do not give the desired amount of heat. And with the help of equations I calculated that there is theoretical possibility to increase the efficiency of our natural “stove”, make her use oxygen more efficiently.
That is, he compiled a mathematical model that confirmed the reality of the discovery of Professor Trincher.
Associate Professor of St. Petersburg State University, candidate Biological Sciences Rinad Minvaleev found practical advice in Tibetan manuscripts dedicated to tummo and modernized this method. Monks master it for decades, and students of St. Petersburg a scientist in just twenty minutes! Minvaleev and Ivanov more than once experienced tummo on themselves and on volunteers in expeditions in the Caucasus and in the Himalayas.
– The director of the Faraon film studio Irina Arkhipova helped us, studies are included in her author’s project “In Search of the Lost knowledge, “notes Rinad Sultanovich. – From the last expedition to Tibet we returned in November, so that all the achievements to conquer cold shot for a documentary …
It is noteworthy that an important condition for the success of an experiment is altitude hypoxia – oxygen deficiency – and low temperatures. It is curious that with this method the subjects as they ascend to the peak there was a decrease in atherogenic fats and cholesterol – the vessels were cleansed! It turns out that using it is possible not only keep warm, but also recover from atherosclerosis. And stress hormone – cortisol – in the blood, too, became less.
– So, our method of increasing cold resistance does not involve mechanisms of stress adaptation of the body, – concludes Minvaleev. – That is, it does not wear out its resource, because under stress our bodies work like an afterburner engine. And on the contrary, even rejuvenates the body.
Minvaleev received a RF patent for the invention of a normalization method adaptive functional systems of man, the basis of which elements of the Tibetan “yoga of inner heat tummo” are laid.
The new method has a great future, in cold Russia it is needed everyone who has to work in the cold. After all, experienced craftsmen tummo heat generation becomes a natural function, it automatically turns on when the ambient temperature drops environments like climate control in a car.
Probably, the method of dealing with cold based on tummo is not useful only to security officers and employees of the Ministry of Emergency Situations. Who knows, maybe in the future he will become fashionable and girls will walk along the snowy streets in mini-skirts and barely covering her stomach blouses?
