Before the industrial era the natural electro-magnetic background was formed by so called space weather and radioactive dissolution process taking place inside the Earth. Nowadays, due to sustainably increasing anthropogenic load, a process of overall change is observed in the parameters of the environment we live in. The process takes place all over the Earth, especially in areas of dense urbanization, where negative sociological and physiological influences of the technical progress on the global population as well as on individual groups of people are especially felt. This global problem has many aspects and among them is the study of adaptation ability of the population living in the conditions of unnatural changes of the electromagnetic background, the essential element of which is a comparative analysis of background diseases of population, for example, it is already well known that the correlation effect of geomagnetic storms, which is one of the global impact of rapid change in the space weather, has an influence on the deterioration of the health state in population with cardiovascular pathologies. In our opinion, revealing physiological mechanism of this correlation, together with the effects of the processes taking place on the surface of the sun, requires to study physiological effects of the locally variable natural electromagnetic background caused by the influence of geomagnetic anomalies on the Earth. In this regard a comparative analysis of the preliminary medical data of the aboriginal population of the resort area of Tskaltsminda-Ureki local geomagnetic anomaly zone and the population of Telavi region, which is a calmer area in geomagnetic point of view, appears deeply interesting. According to the obtained results the combination of the characteristics of the Tskaltsminda-Ureki geomagnetic anomaly area with the cosmic factors characteristic of the sea coast, probably has a positive influence on the population. According to extrapolation of this conclusion we can generally speak on positive therapeutic effect on the people, who make short-term visits to the Tskaltsminda-Ureki resort zone for recreation and treating purposes.
