Ganoderma lucidum against diabetes



Diabetes is not a terrible disease anymore with ganoderma lucidum. It's said that once you have diabetes, your life will be ruind. However, this statemant is no longer true with ganoderma.
As all unfortunately interested know, insufficient insulin secretion is the main cause of diabetes, and this can result in serious complications.
Currently,  insulin injections are acting as the only treatment. Though insulin is able to lower blood sugar level, symptoms come alive very soon.
Furthermore, like hormone injections, it has many side effects. Insulin is not able to recover pancreas functions and it speeds up the aging of the organ.
The Medical Research Institute of Kinki University found in yearly experiments that Ganoderma Lucidum has the same effect as insulin.
Accordingly, taking this "herb", not only can supplement insulin deficiency, it can also make the pancreas function work again on their original levels. And importantly, it doesn't have any side effects like injections do.
HERE you can find a webstore where you can buy ganoderma in powder and capsule form in Ireland and Europe.

A natural way against acid reflux, gerd


Practitioners of traditional Chinese medicine consider Ganoderma a remedy for indigestion. Sufferers of GERD and acid reflux report the mushroom alleviates and even cures their symptoms. Restoration of normal lower esophageal sphincter functioning is the cause of relief, although some attribute the improvement of symptoms to Ganoderma’s alkaline nature as Ganoderma is the most alkaline herb known to the world.

The high acid content of certain food, drinks - especially coffees - can lead to gastrointestinal problems because they increases the  secretion of hydrochloric acid leading to an increased risk for ulcers. They reduces  the pressure on the valve between the esophagus and the stomach so that the highly acidic contents of  the stomach pass up to the esophagus leading to heartburn and gastro-esophageal reflux disease. 

With  world's high consumption of these foods and beverages - again, especially coffee - its no wonder the best selling over-the-counter drugs are the so called antacids, and they can have some negaive long-term effects to the body.

That's why most of the competent doctor recommend the natural way to fight acid reflux, for example ganoderma - in powder form, for quickest absorbation.

Studies for Lingzhi aganst cancer

Cancer is a much dreaded word. Unhappily, it's becoming a more common occurrence. Almost all of us know of someone who has succumbed to this much-feared disease.

Cancers are caused by mutation of cells. Rapid and mass proliferation of mutated cells deprives normal tissues and organs of their functions and eventually causes death. Traces of malignant tumors can be found in all human organs except the hair.

The human body is unable to detect any symptoms when a few hundred cells are cancerous. Only when cancer cells proliferate to form a complete tumor is awareness of symptoms triggered. Thus, it is difficult to detect cancer prior to tumor formation, even with the aid of precision instruments. But do you know that when cancer cells spread, it is almost impossible to predict where cancer will occur next? Thus prevention is definitely a more important strategy than treatment in slowing cancer growth.

Classification of Stages of Cancer by the American Joint Committee on Cancer:

1) Early Stage: tumor tissues still remain in one area with no signs of metastasis(spread of disease from 1 organ to another)
2) Intermediate Stage: cancer cells have proliferated to lymph nodes but not yet invaded other organs
3) Advanced Stage: cancer cells proliferated to lymph nodes and other organs
4) Terminal Stage: cancer cells metastasized to distant organs

Conventional treatments for cancer such as surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy bring patients painful side-effects, but with no guarantee of recovery. Some hospitals adopt an integrated traditional Chinese and Western therapeutic method, which increases the patients' chances of recovery and reduces the harm caused by side-effects.

Much research on cancer therapy states effective treatment should be given prior to tumor formation, as this is the best time for treating cancers. Once cancer cells spread out and enter the lymph system, it is impossible to predict accurately where cancers will occur next. As such, we strongly emphasize that prevention is a better strategy than treatment in slowing cancer growth.

How Ganoderma / Lingzhi Works 

Animal Tests 


In 1985, Prof Da-Cheng Dong fed mice with tumor, with ganoderma fruiting body extracts for 30 days. High doses of the extracts were found to be effective in inhibiting tumor growth, but ineffective at low dosage.

In 2004, Prof Zhi-Bin Lin found that ganoderma polysaccharide peptides are able to fight cancer in mice because they indirectly prevent tumor cells from growing new blood vessels, thereby causing cancer cell apoptosis due to starvation.

In 2002, Kimura fed mice implanted with malignant lung cancer cells with high dosage ganoderma triterpenoids for 18 days. It was found that cancer cell metastasis in the spleen and liver of mice in the treated group was significantly less than in the control group. It inhibit cancer by directly arresting the growth of new blood vessels in the cancer cells.

In 2006, Jian-Jiang Zhong from East China University of Science and Technology found ganoderic acid T to be effective in inhibiting tumor growth of mice implanted with lung cancer cells. The higher the dosage, the more effective the cancer cell inhibition.

Successful in-vitro experiments were conducted using triterpenoids on the following types of cancer cells: leukemia cells, hepatoma (liver) cellsnasopharyngeal (throat) carcinoma, lung cancer, prostate cancer.

Ganoderma / Lingzhi and Human Clinical Study 


In 1995, Thaithatgom from Thailand used ganoderma fruiting body extracts as auxiliary treatment for 80 cancer patients. Findings:-
  • It's effective in extending the lifespan of up to 50% of patients
  • Side effects from chemo and radiotherapy were decreased
  • Patients showed pain-relief, good appetite and better quality of life
In 2003, Gao and co-workers from New Zealand gave purified G.lucidum polysaccharide orally to 47 patients with terminal colorectal cancer. Findings:-
  • 41 patients remained alive after 3 months
  • Natural killer cell activity of 68.3% patients significantly increased
  • Chemo and radiotherapy side-effects eg. extreme fatigue, weight loss, vomiting, cold sweat and diarrhea were reduced, improving their quality of life
The same G.lucidum polysaccharides used in the experiment were also tested on 34 other terminal cancer patients (including lung, breast, hepatoma, prostate, bladder and brain cancer). 30 patients remained alive, showing the same positive results as above.

According to a professional periodical "Healthy Ganoderma" published in Taiwan, a scientific survey was conducted in 2007 on patients who had been using ganoderma extract as anti-cancer auxiliary treatment for the past 20 years. 70% of over 700 cancer patients interviewed thought that ganoderma extracts could reduce side-effects of chemo and radiotherapy and enhance immunity.

Summary 


Numerous scientific researches have observed that regardless of the stages of treatment, the most important approach of ganoderma / lingzhi is to:
(1) inhibit cancer cell proliferation/metastasis
(2) induce apoptosis (cancer cells kill itself) and
(3) kill cancer cells directly.

Further, lingzhi is found to be effective as auxiliary treatment for cancer patients by:
(1) extending their lifespan
(2) decreasing the side effects from chemo and radiotherapy and
(3) giving them better quality of life.

This is because lingzhi enhances the patients’ overall immune system and their body’s anti-cancer ability and raises their tolerance to chemotherapy and radiotherapy.

Shortly and simply about ganoderma lucidum

This video is really good at introducing ganoderma lucidum simply and shortly (chinese: lingzhi, japanese: reishi) in a minute.
