Ganoderma lucidum – An amazing medicinal mushroom
Ganoderma medicinal mushroom against toxins!
Ganoderma, especially DXN Reishi Gano (RG) powder is a very strong detoxifier. The body toxins are compounds that are the end products of the body’s metabolism. They can be chemicals that allocated into the body from outside.
Most often they are the final results of the oxidation of the fermentation processes. Among them, the most important are free radicals, uric acid, lactic acid. Also dead skin cells and toxins resulting from the degradation of micro-organisms.
These toxins may inhibit normal physiological functions ongoing in the body.
Ganoderma – mushrooms and medicinal elixir of life
Free radicals mainly invade first the cell membranes. Then the nucleus and DNA. This biochemical process is called oxidative stress.
The presence of toxins makes the PH acidic (acidosis). This further impairs the body’s metabolic processes reducing the supply of oxygen. This leads to cell death on the long term.
What can reduce oxidative stress?
Ganoderma medicinal mushroom. Ganoderma products contain an enzyme called SOD-superoxide-dismutaz. This is the most powerful antioxidant enzyme known today. It protects the body against the damaging effects of free radicals. Scientific studies show that SOD is a nearly 3,000 times stronger antioxidant than vitamin C.
Ganoderma medicinal mushroom history
For thousands of years the Chinese have considered Ganoderma as “a medicinal mushroom of outstanding quality “. This is the first so-called “medication” that cause no side effects, even with long-term consumption. It increases the body’s own healing ability to help prevent diseases effectively.
“The herbs overview” writing, whose author is the famous Chinese pharmacologist, dr. Li Shin-Chen, lists the types of Ganoderma into six categories based on their colour. It exists in black, purple, blue, white, yellow and red.
Successful cultivation of Ganoderma medicinal mushroom
Ganoderma growing wild is very rare and difficult to collect. If someone accidentally pops into it, the effect is almost always lost. It is because of aging of the fungus, as hard as it may become as leather. It may even be toxic as well. Because the collection is done in irregular manner, any quality control is impossible.
In 1970, one technician, Mr. Yukio Naoi of the Kyoto University Research Institute for Food Science, successfully applied the “spore separation production method” for Ganoderma medicinal mushroom cultivation. This method was introduced on the territory of the PRC in 1975. Because of the extremely favorable climate and soil, this process is widespread.
Special effects of Ganoderma medicinal mushroom:
Ganoderma has been hiding in the mist of mysteries for over a thousand years. People only knew that “Ganoderma keeps youth and regular consumption provides a long life”. No one ever caught in scientific research to determine why it is so effective.
In recent years, extensive research finally deciphered the secret of its exceptional efficiency. The researches were conducted by Chinese and other nationality scientists. They got help from cooperating hospitals, universities and analysis of clinical experiments used by pharmaceutical companies.
Effect of Ganoderma medical mushroom:
- blood purifier,
- bowel function regulating,
- heart function promoting,
- blood pressure adjuster,
- cough suppressant and expectorant,
- inhibitor of tumor.
Key components of Ganoderma medicinal mushroom:
1. Organic Germanium (Ge): can increase the ability to transfer oxygen to the blood up to one and a half times. Also can improve digestion, revents tissue necrosis.
Dr. Kazuhiko Asai’s research shows that Ganoderma contains germanium 800-2000 parts per million. This is four to six times more than the amount located in panax ginseng).
2. Polysaccharides: These organic compounds can enhance the body’s immune system to kill viruses. Japanese pharmaceutical companies have refined it to medical applications. The Koseisho Department of Health declared it subsidized medicines in Japan.
3. Bitter taste. A Japanese doctor and pharmacist profession continuously keeps exploring this property.
The result likely arises from the relationship of germanium and polysaccharides. Some plants contain one or the other. Ganoderma medicinal mushroom is more effective than any of them. The combination of ingredients is different from any other plant. and to ensure the effectiveness each component must be preserved.
Medical basics of Ganoderma medicinal mushroom:
Based on Dr. Shigeru Yuji’s clinical experiments Ganoderma’s effectiveness is due to its following basic functions:
1. reduces the amount of cholesterol and free fats in the blood.
2. lowers blood sugar level; restores pancreatic function.
3. Ganoderma reduces the number of blood lipids. It stabilizes the red blood cell membranes.
4.since Ganoderma contains adenosine, it can reduce platelet accumulation, disintegrate trombins and prevent thrombosis.
5. Optimizes adrenal function.
6. Ganoderma enhances the body’s natural healing ability and the effectiveness of the immune system.
7. Slows the aging brain function decline.
8. Ganoderma medicinal mushroom reduces the side effects of anti-allergic agents.
9. prevents allergies caused by formation of the antigen by inhibiting mast histamine emanation.
10. contributes to the prevention of cancer. It blocks tumor cell metabolism:
a. Prevents sudden death of cancerous patients due to tumor embolism.
b. Prevents thrombosis, releases thrombin. Enhances the effectiveness of anti-tumor drugs.
c. Reduces pain caused by cancer.
It is true that Ganoderma medicinal mushroom is the antidote to modern diseases, and “universal cure” for all diseases?
Yukio Naoi, Kyoto University Research Institute for Food Science:
“Ganoderma medicinal mushroom really is a universal medicine?” Now, let’s not talk about historical diseases but the modern ones. To find the answer, through thirteen years we studied the effects of Ganoderma medicinal mushroom time and time again. These tests give satisfactory results.
The first question is whether Ganoderma medicinal mushroom can be effective in any disease. The answer is “yes”, because of its ability to maintain the health of modern man. For less healthy people, Ganoderma also effects the weakest part of the body. In a sick patient it grabs the root of the problem and allows the recovery.
Ganoderma medicinal mushroom is able to change the unbalanced body and make it healthy. There is no difference between human species. In each case Ganoderma has the same effect. Everywhere in the world we have experienced the same results.
If a patient is particularly responsive to Ganoderma medicinal mushroom, it is as if a patented drug effects in the maximum. In fact, nobody has ever experienced negative effects.
1. Improves the head and shoulder pain caused by high blood pressure and arteriosclerosis.
Mr. Isao Tani’s study, Kinki University, Medical Research Institute:
Most of the subjects suffered partly from high blood pressure. Significant improvement was observed in the area of blood pressure:
The initial value of one of the patients (180/96 mmHg) was 126/94 mmHg decrease after three months’ of Ganoderma medicinal mushroom treatment. Very rarely was such a significant improvement experienced without the use of antihypertensive medications.
Some women who are treated with atherosclerosis, the patient’s blood pressure was reduced from 158/77 to 128/67 after three months’ of Ganoderma medicinal mushroom treatment.
The cholesterol level also improved from 269 to 242 (note .: mg / dL measured, instead of the usual book mmol / l).
Some patients with hypertension are associated with head and shoulder pain. His blood pressure was reduced in a month from 151/78 to 118/72 and eliminated the headaches as well.
More patients experienced improvement in both areas who have complained about high blood pressure and pain as well.
As shown in the above results that Ganoderma medicinal mushroom proved effective in hypertensive patients. Use of antihypertensive drugs may reduce the systolic pressure in such cases. However, it has no effect on diastolic pressure. Ganoderma medicinal mushroom’s unique feature is that it decreases both values.
2. Why is Ganoderma medicinal mushroom effective for systolic and diastolic blood pressure?
Dr. Shigeo Yuji of Kinki University provides 6 explanations of the effective application of Ganoderma in the case of cardiovascular diseases:
a. Contributes to high blood pressure adjustment.
b. It raises the abnormally low blood pressure.
c. Prevents atherosclerosis, lowers cholesterol levels.
d. Prevents thrombosis, dissolves blood clots.
e. Reduces the side effects of antihypertensive drugs.
f. Its co-administration with antihypertensive agents can lower blood pressure.
Cancer, sudden death and vascular obstruction is no longer a threat to the body. Figure: cross-sectional view of the vessel, the development of atherosclerosis.
3. It is effective for cerebral vascular occlusion, myocardial infarction, stroke, and effective for angina (coronary heart disease).
Mr. Ueraba Kioshi’s study, Kinki University
Taking this Ganoderma medicinal mushroom can reduce severe symptoms of these diseases, without traditional treatment. Among the above cases was a patient with two cases diagnosed occlusion of the right hemisphere. (The best results are achieved by taking the combined Ganoderma and Urokinase.) Disability eventually discontinued.
A partially paralyzed patients suffering from cerebral blood vessels could move freely after taking Ganoderma medicinal mushroom. Free fat and beta-lipoprotein values were restored to normal levels.
Consumption may be beneficial to heart patients. Taking Ganoderma with other agents may have better results. However, since these diseases are difficult to treat, Ganoderma is better taken regularly taking a priori prevented from arising.
4. Effective in case of acute and chronic liver disorders and hepatitis.
Study by Dr. Mitsui Hashimoto, Hashimoto Hospital
Today, hepatitis is still a disease with no sure treatment method.
Some patients with hepatitis were prescribed to take six capsules daily. Three months later, all three patients showed improvement: GOT and GPT values from 200 to 300 U / L to 100 U / L decreased.
In addition, one patient who was taking Ganoderma medicinal mushroom together with some Chinese herbs, achieved further GOT and GPT reductions. In one case it associated with high blood pressure in addition to their hepatitis. Taking Ganoderma brought encouraging results.
General conclusion can not be drawn on the basis of the above. After taking Ganoderma medicinal mushroom, positive results can be expected in case of hepatitis.
Fatigue also occurs due to inadequate liver function of the patient. Experience shows that it can be decreased well by taking Ganoderma.
5. We have to forget the belief that “liver disease is incurable.”
The liver is the main organ in terms of health. Liver function is quite complex. Therefore, it is thought to be difficult to cure. The only method of western medicine is intorduction of diet.
However, Ganoderma medicinal mushroom is able to restore optimal operation of complex liver function. Practical tests have shown that using Ganoderma has positive results. According to Dr. Shigeru Yuji 10% of patients with liver disorders shown improvement after two months. At 40% of patients the symptoms disappeared, their liver size decreased. Half of the patients felt that their symptoms subsided due to Ganoderma medicinal mushroom treatment.
6.1. The stomach pain, gastric and duodenal ulcers can be well cured.
Dr. Taro Tamura’s study, Kinki University
Ganoderma medicinal mushroom treatment was used for stomach aches, stomach ulcers and duodenal ulcer.
The most interesting case occurred in a male patient. A young man who has stomach ulcers, and has recently come back again.
The medication has proven ineffective. After initiation of treatment with Ganoderma medicinal mushroom pain decreased significantly after a week. After reducing the dose he only felt pain once a day or there was no pain at all. (The painkillers are usually not used.)
Ganoderma treatment is effective at gastric and duodenal ulcer patients, who suffer from chest pain, loss of appetite, and a gastric ulcer patients who tire easily and weakened. Ganoderma medicinal mushroom treatment can reduce pain after surgery of gastric cancer.
Many patients have improved morale, weight gain also started after taking Ganoderma.
6.2. Ganoderma medicinal mushroom provides protection in case of eating disorders, an unbalanced diet and food poisoning.
Surprising results have been achieved in case of dysentery, constipation, stomach, and gastric ulcer.
According to Dr.Shigeru Yuji’s experiences similar effects have been reported at the drugs most commonly use in such cases.
The main task of the gastro-intestinal tract is absorption of valuable nutrients found in food, and the removal of waste products of digestion. People generally eat too much, or commit an unbalanced diet. This can lead to damage to the digestive system. Ganoderma medicinal mushroom is effective in protection. It optimizes your digestive system.
6.3. Calorie-reduced diet does not have to be started due to obesity.
After the Second World War, the people were poor and did not have enough food. It would have been unnecessary to worry about obesity. Most people were very thin. Thanks to the development of improved economic conditions and medicine, infectious diseases of poverty are no longer a big problem, although a variety of chronic diseases is becoming more prevalent among the adult population.
Our research has shown that among Ganoderma medicinal mushroom consumers lean people gain weight. Weight loss is observed in the obese. Age, gender, health status does not matter. In each case, Ganoderma allows you to maintain optimal body weight and appearance. In case of regular use of Ganoderma it sets up and optimizes the decomposing process.
Since Ganoderma may terminate obesity, overweight people do not have to worry about overweight. Women’sattractive appearance does not have to suffer because of calorie-reduced diet and weight loss agents’ unpleasant side effects.
7.1. Ganoderma medicinal mushroom can significantly reduce the side effects of chemotherapy for breast, colon, and stomach cancer surgery patients.
Dr. Hiroshi Kawai study, Kinki University:
The subjects were patients who postoperatively did not receive adequate treatment. Patients who have suffered from side effects of emotherapy.
After mastectomy and chemotherapy patients face turned mulberry-like. After two months of consumption of Ganoderma eliminated mulberry-like looks.
One patient’s upper limbs were paralyzed and swollen after mastectomy. A month of Ganoderma medicinal mushroom consumption significantly reduced the paralysis.
Some patients consumed Ganoderma herbal medicines ten days after the colostomy (stoma formation on a portion of the large intestine). The night sweats disappeared, appetite improved.
Some patients after gastric cancer surgery lose appetite. In addition to six capsules daily consumption of Ganoderma concentrate appetite has improved significantly.
Taking account of the above results it is concluded that consumption of Ganoderma medicinal mushroom in addition to chemotherapy is effective adjunct therapy because the side effects are reduced.
7.2. It prevents the formation of cancer metastases, reduces pain and provides the opportunity to longer life.
Ganoderma belongs to the Polyporaceae fungi family. Consumption for effective cancer treatment method is regarded by Japan, China, the United States, Canada, Russia and Scotland. In different countries also more specialists conducted clinical tests with the latest scientific equipment, such as Prof. Ta-cheng, National Taiwan University College of Medicine; Prof. Cheng Hui-hua and Prof. Tung UIC hi, Taipei Medical College; The experimental results have shown that an effective therapeutic treatment of cancer with Ganoderma medicinal mushroom. Based on the research reports Ganoderma has proved effective in terms of cancer treatment:
The active substances against cancer of Ganoderma medicinal mushroom are polysaccharides and organic germanium.
Efficiency is due to the cumulative effects of the ingredients. Applied separately would not have the desired effect.
Restorers stamina, strengthens the immune system, It limits the spread of cancer within the body.
After surgery it can help in patients with the following: oesophageal cancer, gastric cancer, breast cancer, colon and womb swelling.
It can end cancer caused by abdominal effusions (ascites). It improves appetite and relieves the patients from experiencing pain of late-stage cancer .
It can be applied with other tumor treatment methods such as surgery, radiotherapy or chemotherapy.
Most of us carry caries, short sight or susceptibility to cancer. The disease can also develop in the future. To prevent tooth decay, you need to consume more calcium and avoid sweets. If you want to avoid myopia, eat more vitamin A, and do not overload the eyes. If you want to prevent cancer, eat a balanced diet and consume Ganoderma medicinal mushroom.
8. Ganoderma medicinal mushroom is effective in the hip and shoulder, and other joint pain healing.
Dr. Taro Kiyobara study, Plastic- and Rehabilitation Clinic.
Ganoderma can be used for treatment of pain felt in the lower back and hands, shoulders and knees.
Ganoderma is remarkably effective in the treatment of pain caused by hematomas (blood pool tissue).
9.1. Ganoderma medicinal mushroom treatment was effective in gynecological problems such as menstrual cramps, vertigo, menopause, etc.
Dr. Yoshinori Imanishi’s study, Imanishi Gynecology and Obstetrics Clinic
The author works as obstetrics and gynecologist. He recommended Ganoderma consumption to women with menstrual cramps, dizziness, an irregular menstrual cycle, menopausal symptoms or difficult to become pregnant.
Positive results were experienced in three cases.
A 46-year-old woman was taking Ganoderma for one month. Her dizziness, shoulder pain disappeared.
A pregnant woman’condition with chest pain and loss of appetite has improved after consumption of Ganoderma medicinal mushroom.
An unmarried female patient who could not conceive despite regular attempts established fertilization. It happened after three months of Ganoderma consumption.
Ganoderma medicinal mushroom alleviates the symptoms of post-natal period, as blood, diuretic and detoxifying effect as well.
9.2. Ganoderma medicinal mushroom is necessary for pregnant and laboring women alike.
When a woman becomes pregnant, her parents probably worry that may they give them Ganoderma.
Expectant mothers have frequent mood swings, especially in the case of the first child.
During pregnancy, women are mentally and physically sensitive to external stimuli. Although it is a natural phenomenon, it is difficult for most women to tolerate.
During this period, Ganoderma medicinal mushroom is blood forming, diuretic and detoxicator and promotes normal development of the fetus. Kanata Professor, Tohoku University said the consumption of Ganoderma for women and men can improve sexual function. It increases sperm activity and regulates ovulation.
10. Ganoderma medicinal mushroom significantly cures kidney diseases.
Renal diseases are intractable diseases. These factors include the acute and chronic nephritis, diabetic kidney disease and rheumatic fever. Partly high cholesterol and high blood sugar levels can trigger these .
The kidneys are overwhelmed and the blood can not reach renal capillaries. Edema of renal disease, urinary retention, and fatigue can cause severe uremia.
Fumio Tsurudani, Institute Professor of Medicine, University of Nagoya, Japan conducted experiments with kidney disease to check the effectiveness of Ganoderma medicinal mushroom. He concluded that Ganoderma reduces protein and cholesterol level and normalizes kidney function.
11. Diabetes is no longer irreversible process. Diabetes is caused by insufficient insulin secretion in the pancreas. Currently, the only medicine to be used for the treatment is insulin replacement.
Although insulin lowers blood glucose, the symptoms occur again very quickly. Likely more side effects similar to hormone injection cortisone may occur. The exogenously added insulin is unable to restore pancreatic function. It accelerates degeneration of the body as well.
The Medical Research Institute of Kinki University found in years of testing that Ganoderma medicinal mushroom has same effect as insulin. Accordingly, the consumption of Ganoderma medicinal mushroom alleviates the symptoms of lack of insulin without the side-effects. Lingzhi restores the functioning of the pancreas.
12. Ganoderma medicinal mushroom is effective in treating a number of little-known diseases.
1. Often there is unknown cause (idiopathic disease)
2. If the cause is known, more sickness medication is not always manageable. For example, hypertension may have a wide variety of sources that antihypertensive agents can facilitate the elimination of symptoms. However, often the root cause of the disease remains unclear.
I. Appendix: The ten major causes of death
4. Heart Disease
6. Chronic hepatitis and cirrhosis
II. Appendix: Japanese study
Japanese medicine confirmed the positive effects of Ganoderma medicinal mushroom.
Doctors around the world considered good quality medicines to be important. The special effects of Ganoderma represent a new medical term “adaptogen” (restores the disturbed equilibrium).
Extensive research and experiments conducted by Japanese hospitals and research institutes have confirmed the positive impact of all aspects of Ganoderma medicinal mushroom. It has proven effective in the treatment of diseases which are triggered by circulatory disorder.
Such diseases include:
1. Low and high blood pressure (hypertension)
2. Heart diseases caused by hypertension
3. Stroke, hyperglycemia, atherosclerosis
4. Menopausal disorders, gynecological problems
5. constipation, hemorrhoids
6. Chronic hepatitis
7. difficulty urinating, frequent urge to urinate
8. gastric and duodenal ulcers
9. allergic respiratory diseases
10. Chronic bronchitis, asthma
11. arthritis, rheumatic diseases
12. Insomnia, lethargy, neurosis
Since Ganoderma medicinal mushroom harmonizes the body’s functions, 2 effects were seen in terms of blood pressure. It raises and lowers blood pressure. It also enhances the body’s natural healing ability and strengthens the immune system.
After taking some Ganoderma medicinal mushroom, “counter-effects” may be experienced, especially in the early stages of consumption: dizziness, feeling of weakness, urinary frequency and urge can occur. This is normal and indicates that launched the stored toxins are leaving the body. People with diabetes can lose a lot of sugar. Rheumatoid patients may experience pain temporarily stronger. This phenomenon is only normal, functional adaptation of the body. It does not refer to anything else than to the efficiency of Ganoderma medicinal mushroom. These symptoms disappear depending on the physical condition of the patients within a few days. Since Ganoderma medicinal mushroom is a natural active ingredient, it may be used together with traditional medicines and can also reduce the side effects of these.
