GANODERMA (LINGZHI) - A Miraculous Herb

For thousands of years Lingzhi has been considered by the Chinese to be a high quality herbal medicine. Sheng Nong's Herbal Classic, the earliest extant monograph on materia medica in China, has listed Lingzhi as the top grade drug. The so-called 'top grade drug' is the best medicine that does not have any side effects, even after consuming it for a long time. It can improve one's constitution, increase the body's healing ability, help maintain a healthy body, and promote longevity.

Compendium of Materia Medica, written by a very famous Chinese pharmacologist Dr. Li Shi Zhen, classifies Lingzhi into six categories by colour. They are Black Lingzhi, Purple Lingzhi, Blue Lingzhi, White Lingzhi, Yellow Lingzhi, and Red Lingzhi.

Successful Cultivation:

Wild Lingzhi is very rare and is difficult to collect. Even if someone finds it by chance, its effects are always lost because of lignification. It becomes hard like wood. They may also be toxic. Since they are haphazardly collected, quality control is impossible.

In 1970, a researcher of Kyoto University Foodstuff Scientific Research Institute, Mr. Yukio Naoi, used 'Spore Separation Cultivation Method' to successfully cultivate Lingzhi.

This method was introduced to Taiwan 1975. Since the climate and soil conditions are ideal, this technique has become widely adopted.

The Magical Effects of Lingzhi:

Lingzhi has always been shrouded with a mysterious veil for thousands of years. People only knew 'Lingzhi can keep one young and give one a long life if taken continuously', but no one had ever scientifically investigated why it was so effective.

Under the attentive research done by both Chinese and foreign scholars in recent years, as well as the collaborative analyses and clinical experiments done by hospitals, colleges, and pharmaceutical manufacturers, its extensive efficacy has finally been discovered. It is a hematocathartic, detoxicant, diuretic agent, liver protector, intestine regulator, cardiotonic, blood pressure adjustor, a cold tonic, antitussive agent and expectorant, a tranquilizer and an anti-tumor drug.


Important components of Lingzhi:
  1. Organic Germanium (Ge) : Can increase the oxygen absorbed by the blood beyond 1.5 times, promote metabolism, and prevent premature ageing.

  2. Polysaccharides : These can improve the body's immune system and eliminate viruses. Japanese pharmaceutical companies have refined it into a medicine and it has been approved by the Health Ministry of Japan as preventive medicine.

  3. Adenosine: Remarkable in subduing the formation of thrombi, cleansing the blood, and improving functions of the circulatory system. Some plants may contain either germanium or polysaccharides but Lingzhi has both, which give it its miraculous efficacy



Pharmacological Actions of Lingzhi:
According to Dr. Shigeru Yuji's clinical experiments, the reason why Lingzhi is effective is because of its basic functions.
  1. Lowers cholesterol in the blood and the amount of excessive fat.

  2. Reduces blood sugar level and restore pancreas functions.

  3. Lowers blood lipids and stabilizes red cell membrane.

  4. As it contains Adenosine, it can inhibit blood platelet's aggulation, break down thrombi, and prevent thrombogenesis.

  5. Improves the function of the cortes of the adrenal glands to maintain endocrine balance.

  6. Elevates the natural healing ability of the body and allows the body to establish a strong immune system.

  7. Prevents tissue cell degeneration.

  8. Prevents senility, maintaining a youthful constitution.

  9. Reduces the side effects of anti hypertensive drugs.

  10. Prevents organic is degeneration.

  11. Prevents allergy caused by antigens, because it inhibits the release of histamine.

  12. Helpful in the prevention and treatment of cancer and inhibits cancer cell metastasis.

  1. Normalizes body functions to prevent tissue degeneration.

  2. Prevents sudden death of cancer patients caused by thrombosis.

  3. Inhibits thrombogenesis, breaks down thrombi on the wall of surrounding tissues and removes blockade of cancer medication, hence increasing the effectiveness of anti-cancer drugs.

  4. Relieves pain caused by cancer.



Lingzhi - the saviour for modern people
Yukio Naoi of Kyoto University Foodstuff Scientific Institute

Is Lingzhi really a universal medicine? Let's not talk about the diseases prevalent in history, but of modern diseases. In order to find the answer, we have investigated its functions over and again for thirteen years. Satisfactory results have been obtained.

The first issue is whether Lingzhi can be effective on all kinds of diseases. Our answer is 'yes',because it is able to maintain the health of the modern people. For an unhealthy person, Lingzhi can activate the functions of the most feeble parts of his body. To a patient, it can root out the source of the sickness and allow recovery. Lingzhi can change an imbalanced body to a healthy one. There is no difference among human races. If the patient's constitution conforms to Lingzhi, it will attain its highest effects. In fact, we have not found any person who experience negative effects or inefficient results through the consumption of Lingzhi.


The efficacy of Lingzhi is evident through the following clinical cases:
1. Headache and shoulder pain caused by hypertension and arteriosclerosis are completely cured, and blood pressure is also improved.
Reported by Mr. Isao Tani, lecturer of Medical Research Institute of Kinki University

The experimental subjects were predominantly hypertension patients. Blood pressure showed significant improvement. One patient with a reading of 180/196mmHg had a reading of 126/194mmHg after three months. Such remarkable improvement is rarely seen without using anti hypertensive drug.

Some female arteriosclerosis patients blood pressure dropped to 128/67mmHg from 158/177mmHg within three months. Their cholesterol level also improved from 269 to 242.

Some patients had hypertension with headache and shoulder pain. Their blood pressure dropped from151/78mmHg to118/72mmHg in one month, and some with their headaches eliminated altogether.

A good number of patients also had conditions and subjective symptoms improved.

Based on the above results, we may see that Lingzhi is useful to hypertension patients. Using anti-hypertensive drug to lower blood pressure can lower the systolic pressure, but not the diastolic pressure. Lingzhi can lower both. This is its outstanding quality.

2. Why is it effective for both systolic pressure and diastolic pressure?
Dr. Shigeru Yuji of Kinki University gives five explanations why Lingzhi is effective for cardio-vascular diseases:
  1. Treats hypertension and hypotension.

  2. Prevents arteriosclerosis, lowers cholesterol level.

  3. Prevents thrombogenesis and breaks down thrombi.

  4. Reduces the side effects of anti hypertensive drugs.

  5. Used together with anti hypertensive drugs can elevate the effects of lowering
    blood pressure


Cancer, sudden death and vascular obstruction diseases are threats no more.


Development of arteriosclerosis (Cross-section of blood vessel)



3. It is also effective in treating cerebral vascular obstruction, cardiac infarction, cerebral apoplexy, and angina pectoris.
Reported by Mr. Uebara Kioshi, lecturer of Kinki University

Taking Lingzhi can reduce the serious symptoms of the above diseases. Among these cases was a patient with a right cerebral arterial obstruction which occurred twice. He received the best results after taking Lingzhi and Urokinase together. Complete mobility was finally restored.

A patient suffering from cerebral vascular obstruction, who was partially paralyzed, could move freely after taking Lingzhi. His excessive fat and 6-lipo protein value returned to normal.

Taking Lingzhi can also improve the conditions of insomnia and infarction in cardiac patients. This proves that taking Lingzhi together with other drugs can bring in better results, as evident in my clinical experiments with patients who were seriously ill. It is true that prevention is always better than cure, and taking Lingzhi on a long-term basis can prevent the onset of diseases.

4. It is effective in the treatment of acute and chronic hepatitis and liver dysfunction.
Reported by Dr. Mitsui Hashimoto, Head of Hashimoto Hospital

At the present time, hepatitis is still a disease which cannot be treated with any specific method. I precribed Lingzhi for hepatitis patients and it proved to be exceptional.

Six capsules per day were prescribed to some patients who could not benefit from other drugs. Three months later, all the patients were recovering; their GOT and GPT values decreased from 200-300 to 100.

In addition, one patient who used Lingzhi together with some Chinese herbal medicines resulted in a decreased GOT and GPT. There was one case of hepatitis complicated with hypertension. After taking Lingzhi, satisfactory results were obtained.

The above conditions were not conclusively satisfactory, but positive results of taking Lingzhi on hepatitis can be expected.

When liver function is declining, the patient may get extremely tired. Taking Lingzhi can help ease fatigue.

5. The fallacy that 'Liver disease is incurable' should be abandoned.
The liver is one of the most important organs for health. Liver function is quite complicated. Therefore, liver disease is considered difficult to treat, and dietetic
treatment is the only method adopted by Western physicians. However, Lingzhi is able to make the complicated organ function and have it return to normal. Based on our practical investigation, Lingzhi can contribute a very positive effect. Dr. Shigeru Yuji reported that 10% of liver disorders could be cured after taking it for two months. 40% of the patients were relieved of their symptoms, and their liver sizes were reduced. 50% of the patients felt their symptoms diminished.

6. Effective against gastrointestinal diseases and bodyweight problems.
6-1 Pain from gastritis, gastric ulcer, duodenal ulcer, etc. can be relieved immediately.
Reported by Dr. Taro Tamura, pharmacist of Kinki University

We used Lingzhi in gastritis, gastric ulcer, and duodenal ulcer treatment. The most interesting case was of a man, who had developed a gastric ulcer when he was young and the problem had recently recurred. Other medicines were ineffective, but one week after beginning treatment with Lingzhi, his pain was significantly reduced. When the dosage was reduced, he felt pain on alternate days or almost no pain at all.

This treatment is also effective for gastritis developed after operation on stomach cancer and duodenal ulcer patients who suffer from chest pain, loss of appetite, and gastric ulcer patients who are fatigue and feeble. Some patients who had suffered from duodenal ulcer had their facial complexion improved and they put on weight gradually after taking Lingzhi.

6-2 Lingzhi protects patients suffering from gastrointestinal diseases due to over-eating, dietary bias, or food poisoning.
It has surprising results in treating dysentery, constipation, gastric hyperacidity, and peptic ulcer. Its effects are equal to that of medicines now in common use. Dr. Shigeru Yuji also reported its high efficacy in treating gastritis and ulcers. The main function of the stomach and the intestines is to absorb the required nutrients in food, then excrete the wastes before fermentation. People usually eat too much, have imbalanced diets, or suffer from food poisoning, then their digestive organs are damaged. Lingzhi not only protects the organs but can improved the functioning of the digestive tract.

6-3 0ver-eating no longer a problem among people suffering from obesity.

After World War I I, people were poor and did not have enough food to eat. It was needless to care about obesity, for most people were very lean. Due to medical advancement and improved economic conditions, contagious diseases and poverty are much less of a problem, while cases of chronic diseases and different kinds of adult diseases are increasing.

It was found in our investigation that thin people who take Lingzhi can gain weight, while overweight people can lose weight instead. No matter how old or young, whether male or female, whatever one's constitution, Lingzhi allows a person to maintain optimal body weight and figure. Lingzhi will adjust the constitution and regulate physiologial functions if ocne takes it regularly.

Since Lingzhi can eliminate obesity, overweight people do not need to worry about their obese figures and figure-conscious women do not need to suffer the pain and ill effects of dieting and weight loss drugs.

7. Exceptional in speeding up recovery after surgery and subduing cancer cells.
7.1 Taking Lingzhi together with chemotherapy may have significant results for patients who have had surgery for breast cancer, colon cancer, or gastric cancer.
Reported by Dr. Hiroshi Kawai, lecturer of Kinki University

The experimental subjects were patients who were treated improperly after surgery, and patients who were suffering from the side effects of chemotherapy.

After a mastectomy, one patient's face turned gloomy. After taking Lingzhi for two months, her facial complexion improved.

One patient's limbs became paralyzed and swollen after a mastectomy. After consuming Lingzhi for one month, the numbness significantly improved.

Some patients used Lingzhi together with some herbal medicines for ten days after a colostomy. Night sweats disappeared and appetites improved.

Some patients who had had a gastric cancer operation lost their appetites. When six capsules of Lingzhi were taken each day, their appetites improved.

In view of the above results, we can see that Lingzhi taken with chemotherapy can be a valuable auxiliary treatment and side effects of chemotherapy can be reduced.

7.2 Prevents metastasis of cancerous cells, relieves pain, and promotes Longevity.
Lingzhi belongs to the Polyporacease of fungi family, and is believed to be an effective cancer treatment in Japan, China, the U.S.A., Canada, the U.S.S.R. and Scotland. Some medical specialists in different countries are using the latest scientific instruments to do clinical test, e.g. Prof. Ta-cheng, Medical College of the National Taiwan University; Prof. Cheng Hui-hua and Prof. Tung Ui-chi of Taipei Medical College. The experimental results have proven that Lingzhi is effective in cancer treatment. Information concerning Lingzhi in treating cancer collected from research reports are as listed below.

  1. The anti-cancer components of Lingzhi are polysaccharides and germanium.

  2. Its efficacy is of "composite nature" with multiplying effects. Thus no effects can be obtained when taken separately.

  3. It can strengthen stamina, elevate the immune system and restrain metastasis of cancerous cells.

  4. After undergoing surgery, it is helpful for patients with cancerous problems such as esophageal cancer, gastric cancer, breast cancer, intestinal cancer and uterine cancer.

  5. It can eliminate cancerous ascites, increase appetite and relieve the pain of
    telophase cancer.

  6. It can be used together with other cancer treatments, such as surgery, radiation or combined with chemotherapy. It has no side effects and is effective.



Based on the above clinical reports, we can see that Lingzhi possesses cancer preventing, subduing and curing qualities.

Most of us may have tooth decay, short-sightedness or cancer factors in us when we are young, and these problem car? take their toll at any time. We should try our best to prevent them from occurring. If we want to prevent tooth decay, we should eat more foods that are rich in calcium and avoid sweets. If we want to avoid short-sightedness, we should take more vitamin A and avoid eye fatigue. If we want to prevent cancer, we should consume Lingzhi and avoid an imbalanced diet.

8. Lingzhi is also effective in treating venous aneurysm, pain on the waist and shoulders, and rheumatism of the hands and knees. It can also treat sciatica.
Reported by Dr. Taro Kiyobara, Head of the Hospital of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery

Lingzhi can be used to treat lumbago, pain of the hands, shoulders and knees. There is one case of venous aneurysm which improved a little.

Also, consuming Lingzhi for a month can be helpful for patients suffering from spur. Thus it can be seen that Lingzhi is considerably effective in the treatment of pain caused by problems relating to the blood, blood vessels or hematoma on the torso.

As to shoulder, neck and knee pain, in one case the pain was originated from a deformed knee, another two cases were related to painful neck and shoulder, the pain was relieved.

Treating pains that result from vascular or blood disturbance can be very effective

9. Remarkable for gynecological diseases.
9-1 Lingzhi is also effective in treating gynecological problems, such as menstrual cramps, dizziness, menopause disturbances, etc.

Reported by Dr. Yoshinori Imanishi, Head of the Imanish Gyenesology and Obstetrics Hospital

The writer, who is an OB-GYN specialist, prescrtb ed Lingzhi to women patients who had menstrual cramps, dizziness, irregular menstruation, menopausal disturbances, and difficulty in getting pregnant.

There were three cases which showed positive results. A 46 year old woman, took Lingzhi for one month after which her dizziness and shoulder pains were relieved. A pregnant woman had distress in her chest and no appetite. After treatment with Lingzhi her condition improved. One woman with a physiological disorder was married for many years, but could not conceive. After taking Lingzhi for three months, she became pregnant.

There are two cases where positive results were obtained from combining Lingzhi with herbal medicines. In the first case, serious dizziness and shoulder pain was relieved in three months In the second case, abdominal pain was reduced.

Lingzhi can relieve postpartum symptoms, acting as a hermocatharsis, diuretic, and a detoxicant.

9.2 Lingzhi should be regarded as essential during pregnancy and delivery.
When a woman becomes pregnant, her parents may wonder if it is safe to give her Lingzhi. The expectant mother may become moody, especially if it is her first pregnancy.

During pregnancy, women are quite sensitive to outer stimulation, both mentally and physically. Though it is a natural phenomenon, most women have difficulty adapting to it.

During this period, taking Lingzhi may act as a hemocatharsis, a diuretic, and as a detoxicant, allowing the fetus to develop normally. It is said that Lingzhi may help the woman who has difficulty in getting pregnant, or who has had habitual miscarriage before. Prof. Kanata of Tohoku University believes that taking Lingzhi can improve sexual drive of both the male and female, intensifying the activity of spermatozoa and regulating ovulation of the female.

Information from different sources reveals that Lingzhi may be thought of as the 'friend of the female'. It should be considered an essential tonic for women.

10. Lingzhi may effect a near to 100% cure for renal diseases.
Kidney or renal disease is also one of the most difficult diseases to cure. They include acute or chronic nephritis, diabetic renal syndrome, nephrosis and rheumatic fever. These may be due in part to a high cholesterol count and a high blood sugar level. The kidneys are overloaded and blood cannot reach renal capillaries. Nephrosis results, with edema, urine retention, fatigue and possibly serious uremia.

Prof- Fumio Tsurudani of the Nagayo University Medical Institute, Japan, did an experiment with patients suffering from renal disease, to check the effectiveness of Lingzhi. It was found that it could not only lower proteinuria and cholesterolemia, but could also maintain proper renal function.

Based on our experimental results, renal disease can be cured near to 100% by taking Lingzhi. It is indeed a surprising achievement.


11. Diabetes is no more a dreaded disease.
It is said that once you have diabetes, your life will be tangled with it. However, we cured a number of diabetic cases with Lingzhi.

As we know, insufficient insulin secretion is the cause of diabetes, and this results in some serious complications. Currently, Western physicians use insulin injections as the only treatment. Though insulin is able to lower blood sugar level, the symptoms recur very soon. Furthermore, it is just like a cortisone hormone injection, which is known to entail many side effects. Insulin is unable to recover pancreas function, and it speeds up the ageing of the organ.

Over the years, Medical Research Institute of Kinki University found through experiments that Lingzhi has the same function as insulin. Accordingly, after taking Lingzhi, not only can insulin deficiency be supplemented, but it can also make the pancreas regain its original function. In addition, it does not have any side effects like injections do.

Curing diabetic condition without the need of injection is another feature that makes Lingzhi miraulous.

12. The occurrence of hereditary diseases can be prevented.
Many kinds of hereditary diseases have a high occurrence rate. If you are healthy at this moment, you want to maintain this condition all your life, Lingzhi can help you to achieve this goal. Lingzhi's outstanding feature is that "It can adequately reflect slight symptoms of diseases, keeping the human body in harmonious condition". This is the conclusion derived from experiments on thousands of people.

Lingzhi is a kind of medicinal food with over two thousand years of human experience. After long term experiments, its pharmacological nature has been further clarified, and it is widely used to maintain the health of human beings. Its position in the medical field has been firmly established.

13. Lingzhi is also effective in the treatment of difficult and mysterious diseases.
Lingzhi can be helpful in curing diseases with unknown causative factors to restore normal physiological functions. The so-called "difficult" and "mysterious" diseases include:

  1. No causes can be identified.

  2. Even if the cause can be identified, it is untreatable with medication or drugs. For example, blood pressure disorders are caused by many factors, but it is too complicated to understand the source and eliminate it. Even though anti hypertensive drugs can relieve the symptoms, the source cannot be eliminated.

For diseases that cannot be treated adequately with medicine, cannot be accurately diagnosed, or cannot be cured by Western drugs, Lingzhi can be considered a precious panacea. Only Lingzhi can treat these diseases successfully, hence eliminating the root cause of various puzzling diseases.

Directions On The Consumption of Lingzhi
1. Dosage Directions :

  1. Dosage for specific cases : Six or more capsules a day (to be split into 2 or 3 times and taken with empty stomach).

  2. Dosage for general health-care: Three or more capsules a day (to be taken on empty stomach).


2. Cautions :

  1. As Lingzhi is a natural food, it can be taken together with western medicines or traditional formulations.

  2. In the morning after consumption, you should take a slow jog or a brisk walk to warm up the body (ideally to the extent that you feel the warmth throughout your body but before it starts to perpire). You may take deep breaths to get some fresh air, and to supply the body with more oxygen, hence improving circulation and metabolism.

  3. Defecate once a day.

  4. Avoid foods rich in animal fat, fried and stale foods or pickles. Also reduce the intake of spicy foods. Eat more fruits, vegatables, and lean meat.


3. Reactions

  1. Subjective symptoms disappear.

  2. Feel energetic.

  3. Sense of hunger (Appetite increases, but body weight stabilizes).

  4. Sleep more deeply and soundly. Sleeping hours will be reduced but you will wake up refreshed.

  5. Improved defecation (normal urination and smooth bowel movements).

  6. Vertigo reactions: (a concept in Chinese medicine; the symptoms will become worse before they become better, because the causes of the diseases are being eliminated.) After taking Lingzhi for three days, slight vertigo reactions may result. It is not a side effect. Please continue to use. It is just a result of its efficacy, and the reactions will be different for each individual. Not everyone will experience this reaction, as it depends on the amount of toxins in the body that are being eliminated.


In general, one who has a hypersensitive constitution, or who takes large amounts of chemical drugs will easily have such a reaction. Sometimes, urticaria may appear on the face or the body, or even in the mouth. Also, one may have edema, diarrhea, stomcah ache, fever, tinnitus, blood pressure variations and increased excretion. These are not side effects. Do not worry. Continue to use. The symptoms will lessen or disappear very soon.

Some phenomena resulting from herbal medicines or alimentary therapeutics are often mistaken as side effects of the drug. Actually, when these symptoms occur, the disease will be cured gradually. Some traditional therapists even emphasized, "No vertigo reactions, no cure".

Vertigo Reactions = Improvement Reactions = Detoxification

  1. When an acidic constitution changes to an alkaline one (on improved condition), the toxic substances within the body are being discharged. At this moment, different reactions will appear, generally within 3-10 days. Symptoms vary from one individual to another; for some they may be light, for others they may be more severe. It depends on one's constitution. When the symptoms disappear, one may feel very comfortable and energetic.




  2. When the body constitution is acidic, blood will be turbid. Diseases will appear in different organs. Be sure you do not develop an acidic body constitution.

    When the reaction is severe, the following symptoms could occur:
    a. Acidic Constitution
    1) Very sleepy, even in the day time.
    2) Thirsty and dry mouth.
    3) Urination at night and flatulence with frequent farts.


  • For the following diseases, these reactions may occur only for a short period of time:

    1. Hypertension : heaviness in the head, which may last for 1-2 weeks

    2. Anemia : nose bleeding, mostly happening on women.

    3. Gastric disturbances : heat in the chest, poor appetite.

    4. Gastric ulcer : pain at the affected part.

    5. Gastroptosis : feeling heavy in the stomach, hiccough.

    6. Enteropathy : diarrhea.

    7. Hepatopathy : hiccough or vomiting

    8. Cirrhosis of the liver : stool with blood stain.

    9. Renal disease : protein level may suddenly drop, slight edema in the face.

    10. Diabetes : blood sugar may rise, slight edema in the hands and feet.

    11. Hemorrhoids : bleeding may occur occasionally.



    Occurrence of Vertigo Reactions:

    1. Nine out of ten people who consume Lingzhi may have these reactions.

    2. Patients who experience vertigo reactions will have faster results from Lingzhi,
      while patients who do not will have slower recovery.

    3. Length of vertigo reactions: a light reaction may last 2-5 days; a severe one 7-30 days.

    4. If the reaction is serious, reduce the dosage or see a doctor to relieve the symptoms
      first, then continue to consume until the reaction subsides.

    5. Some may experience the reaction 3-10 days after beginning treatment with Lingzhi.
      Some may have the reaction 2-3 months later. The reaction may recur, unless the
      disease has been completely cured.




    Why Lingzhi seems to be ineffective for some people
    In general, after consuming one bottle, one may feel its effects. If you take it
    continuously, it will improve your health. However, some people may experience no
    effects at all. The reasons are as listed below:

    1. It was not taken regularly or the recommended dosage was not followed.

    2. Stopped using when the vertigo reactions occurred.

    3. Diet, exercise and style of living not well regulated.

    4. Illness has lasted too long or too many chemical drugs have been used. The toxins
      within the body have got to be fully discharged.

    5. The severity of the illness varies after beginning treatment. Patients lose their
      confidence, so they stop taking it. When the disease has not been completely
      cured, there will be an oscillating phenomenon, but pain and symptoms may be
      alleviated gradually. Continue to use.

    6. Psychological factors : give up consumption upon listening to negative views of
      others.




    Appendix 2 : Report from Japan
    The Japanese medical field has confirmed the positive efficacy of

    Lingzhi.
    Recently, physicians all over the world are concerned about high quality medicines.
    A new medical term'Adaptogen' has been coined to indicate the specific effects of Lingzhi.

    After long term research and experiments done by major hospitals and research institutes in Japan, Lingzhi's positive effects have been confirmed in every respect, especially its hemocatharsis effect, i.e. improves blood circulation and revitalizes body cells. It allows the internal organs to function properly, improves a weak constitution, and enhances the immune system. It has an exceptional efficacy in treating diseases caused by poor circulation. It is helpful in maintaining health and for a healthy appearance.

    The Japanese medical field is surprised and has acknowledged its positive effects on the following diseases:
    1. Hypertension and hypotension

    2. Cardiac disease originating from hypertension and hematoma

    3. Cerebral apoplexy, high blood sugar, blood vessel obstruction

    4. Menopausal disturbances, gynecological diseases

    5. Constipation, hemorrhoids

    6. Chronic hepatitis

    7. Urination difficulties, frequent urination

    8. Gastric diseases, duodenal ulcers

    9. Hypersensitivity, including nasal sensitivity and chronic rhinitis

    10. Chronic bronchitis, asthma

    11. Arthritis, lumbago, rheumatism (after middle age)

    12. Insomnia, lethargy, neurasthenia

    13. Skin rashes due to hypersensitivity, athlete's foot, and ringworm due to hematoma


    It may sound strange that Lingzhi has an inversive effect, i.e. it can both raise and lower down blood pressure. Actually, because Lingzhi is capable of harmonizing body functions and increasing the natural healing ability of the body, it can strengthen the immune system, especially for the middle aged.

    With Lingzhi, some people may experience reactions after beginning treatment. Some may have dizziness, weakness, itching or frequent defecation and urination. These are normal phenomena, indicating that the positive effects have begun to the toxic deposits and eliminate them out of the body. Patients with diabetes may lose a large amount of sugar, patients with rheumatism may have temporary but intense pain. These phenomena are purely normal and functional adjustments within the body. It is nothing but the performance of its efficacy. Depending on one's personal constitution, the reactions will disappear in a few days.

    Since Lingzhi is a natural medicine, it can be used with other western drugs. It causes no adverse effects, and is capable of counteracting the side effects of western drugs.

    How Ling Zhi Effective to Diabetes

    Diabetes is an autoimmune disease affecting only a single organ. Fifty percent more women than men suffer from diabetes. The main causes of diabetes are obesity and poor eating habits.

    Special B cells in the pancreas are responsible for producing insulin, which regulates the amount of sugar in the blood. In childhood diabetes, antibodies produced by the body destroy the B cells. This ends the pancreas' ability to secrete insulin, which causes blood sugar to soar. The kidneys are forced to work harder to excrete all the excess blood sugar, and water and minerals are excreted along with it.

    Diabetes is frequently accompanied by heart disease, scurvy, and blindness, and may even lead to coma and death. To reduce your chance of getting diabetes, control your diet, get adequate exercise, and strengthen your immune system; make sure to have your blood sugar tested regularly.

    It is said that once you have diabetes, your life will be tangled with it. However, we cured a number of diabetic cases with Lingzhi.

    As we know, insufficient insulin secretion is the cause of diabetes, and this results in some serious complications. Currently, Western physicians use insulin injections as the only treatment. Though insulin is able to lower blood sugar level, the symptoms recur very soon. Furthermore, it is just like a cortisone hormone injection, which is known to entail many side effects. Insulin is unable to recover pancreas function, and it speeds up the ageing of the organ.

    Over the years, Medical Research Institute of Kinki University found through experiments that Lingzhi has the same function as insulin. Accordingly, after taking Lingzhi, not only can insulin deficiency be supplemented, but it can also make the pancreas regain its original function. In addition, it does not have any side effects like injections do.

    Curing diabetic condition without the need of injection is another feature that makes Lingzhi miraulous.

    Lingzhi plus pollen, an utmost pair in preventive medicine

    Using modern technology in medical research and development, people have already proven almost every each one of the beneficial and therapeutic functions of Lingzhi claimed by our ancestors. On the other hand, people living in advanced countries in Europe and North America are rather in favor of pollen on their health food supplement lists. Now we put the two together and the result is, we sincerely believe an utmost pair in modern preventive medicine.

    Until quite recently, peoples everywhere in the world had been totally relied on natural products for foods. Peoples with long history accumulated many precious facts of knowledge in their abundant food intaking experiences, from the very basic of which one is eatable and good to stuff a starving stomach, to which one has certain effects of keeping good health going. From those experiences, pollen apparently has received more attention than many others and stood out as one of the most popular traditional foods common in all great civilizations.

    What we are talking about are the peoples with thousands of years of history, such as Egyptians, Chinese, Romans, Greeks, Arabians, and American Indians. Although they had no idea what essences were present in pollen, the wonderful results on good human health it repeatedly demonstrated in real life for thousands of years bewildered people and made it one of the most important food supplements in their diets. The beneficial effects of pollen experienced by those ancient people can be summarized into “making people live longer and happier, have better figures and complexion, and become physically stronger and healthier.”

    Because of the claimed goodness of pollen being from so many diversified sources, modern scientists couldn’t wait to find out if those claims are true and what’s in it to make those effects happen in case they are real. According to a book recently published in Taiwan titled “Pollen and Medical Treatments,” the modern scientific researches have verified that eating pollen does help a person to keep good health. Scientists have so far found more than two hundred individual nutritious ingredients in pollen, including many necessary nutrients to keep good health going and many trace elements as well. For instance:

    1. Various enzymes and co-enzymes: Those can keep metabolism in a human body running smoothly and trouble-free.

    2. Vitamins: More than 16 kinds.

    3. Amino acids: Most proteins found in pollen contain ionized amino acids, which are easier to be absorbed and digested.

    4. Minerals: More than 16 kinds.

    5. Carbohydrates and others: Many in numbers.



    Modern people can no longer rely on their daily three regular meals to secure a sound or well-balanced nutrition.

    As everybody has noticed, a well-balanced nutrient intake is one of the most essential factors for maintaining good health. However, due to the vast diversity of modern life, people are all subject to an ever-increasing pressure of work and play, it’s almost impossible for a regular person like you and me to keep a well-scheduled daily routine and particularly a balanced food intake. Also, with circumstantial situations like the so-called advanced technologies in food processing, refining and preserving industry having in fact robbed many essential nutritious elements of the originally wholesome foods for human consumption and others, the results is that in nowadays, no one can really rely on the traditional three meals to get all the necessary nutrients he or she needs. Therefore, the updated, correct modern nutrition concept is that if any one wants top-notch health or well being, he or she has to take supplements other than regular meals.

    Besides, when body absorbs nutrients, it needs mutual assistance from each other to get the best results. So too much or too little amount of any one particular kind of food ingredients at each intake will only hamper the normal absorption to a certain extent. Therefore, picking eaters as well as over-eating people should by all means try to get their nutrition right by taking proper supplements. Pollen with its more than two hundred kinds of built in “balanced” nutrients is of course one of the best choices of food supplements outside of three meals.

    How to choose high quality pollen

    Pollen is not only a good source of sufficient and balanced nutrients, its characteristic abnormally high activity is also another reason of getting it so much attention from people in past centuries. Because of this activity, once entered human body, it can disintegrate more readily into smaller molecules of nutrients and can be absorbed than other average foods. However, among numerous available kinds of pollen, which one should be in the royal class in the view of modern people? The following criteria can be used as discriminating factors. First of all, after the pollen going through the standard sterilization process for hygienic and safety concerns, its color should be in bright golden yellow as the sunshine, it feels delicate, ready to dissolve in your mouth and tastes fresh and fragrant, and its granules are uniformly even in size. In other words, it should reach a certain high standard in its look, smell, and taste at the same time to be classified as the most precious product.

    Top quality standard of Lingzhi – high content of triterpenoids

    Just like the traditional food pollen of being a “balanced nutrition” source, lingzhi is also one of the traditional miraculous foods, and recognized by Traditional Chinese Medicine as a mild and non-drastic nourishing food. According to Pen Tsao Kang Mo, a classic masterwork of Traditional Chinese Medicine, long-term consumption of lingzhi will make a person agile and relaxed both in body and mind, to gain longevity and slow anti- aging process. However, there is a distinct difference between the two as some of the ingredients found in lingzhi are not so common in other foods as those in pollen although lingzhi and pollen are both reputed helpful to people’s health. One group of comparatively unusual ingredients found in lingzhi turned out to be some polysaccharides and empirical data showed that they could restore the subsiding or weakening immunity of modern people. But polysaccharides are really not that unusual, as you can find them in common Shiitake mushroom (Lentinula edodes) or Jing-chen mushroom (Velvet-shank). Therefore, in order to improve immune system, you can eat more mushrooms at regular meals as a replacement.

    So far the most unusual ingredients of lingzhi drawing people’s attention are its triterpenoids. On one hand, lingzhi triterpenoids are quite unique, i.e. you can hardly find them in other foods. Initially, people found that these ingredients had some protective effects to liver, and then they found their seemly good therapeutic effects on cancer patients, which led to vast interests from researchers in tumorology and cancer therapists. Therefore, nowadays content of triterpenoids in lingzhi has become the most important index of its quality. For instance, in the volatile Japanese market of incredibly varied health foods, they are using content of triterpenoids to identify or grade a certain lingzhi product. You can see the important connection between those triterpenoids and lingzhi quality, and its capability of maintaining good health.

    Representatives of good health providers – top quality lingzhi and pollen

    Lingzhi contains unique ingredients. Long-term consumption of it can rejuvenate declined immunity and stock up potential resistance in the body towards possible adverse encounters in the future. To maximize its good effects, it is apparently important to choose the best quality lingzhi you can purchase. Pollen, on the other hand, contains many activated nutrients, which is able to fulfil quickly whatever the body needs, instantly revitalize cells in the body, and help the individual to achieve the best state of well being. Similarly, to maximize its benefits, pollen quality is the key and should never be overlooked.

    A modern human being should take full advantage of top quality lingzhi and top quality pollen if he or she knows how to choose them, shouldn’t he? He or she can then get the best nutrition balance money can buy, and at the same time activate all body cell functions and improve latent immunity. Especially in the present worsening environment, in which signs show some already disappeared infectious diseases are making a comeback, and some new fatal disease are surfacing. This complex situation is so gloomy that the modern medical profession seems fighting a losing battle. It seems the only effective alternative for us human to take is preventive medicine, and no other way out absolutely. Therefore, take and choose high quality lingzhi and pollen is the only sensible way to cope with the current environment we live in. With good health provided by these two wonder food supplements, we can face any adverse incidents in the future and be confident to have a good life ahead of us.

    How To Choose Good Lingzhi

    According to the results of research conducted by the Microbiological Research Foundation, R.O.C., also known as Ganoderma Organization, consumers who wish to buy superior Lingzhi products should place importance on the following four points:

    1. Does the maker possess its own farm and production facility accredited with Food GMP(Good Manufacturing Practice)?
    Only a company possessing its own farm and production plant accredited with Food GMP can give consumers a solid guarantee that Lingzhi quality is controlled throughout the production process, from raw materials to finished products.

    2. Technology and grade of Lingzhi extraction and processing equipment:
    Only plants possessing technologically-advanced Lingzhi extraction equipment can insure the purity, efficacy, and safety of their Lingzhi products.

    3. Products awarded with health food certifications issued by the government:
    Only products awarded with health food certifications issued by the government can guarantee to provide consumers quality and efficacy.

    4. Company image and after-sales service:
    If a company offers poor after-sales service and does not value its image, consumers will be unable to receive timely assistance and attention, and may feel abandoned and cheated after the purchase.


    If looking carefully, you will find that "This LingZhi" fully satisfies all of these four conditions and it is absolutely your best choice for improving health.

    Cancer Knowledge - Must Know

    PLEASE SPARE 5 MINUTES TO READ THIS AND THEN FORWARD THE SAME TO ALL

    AFTER YEARS OF TELLING PEOPLE CHEMOTHERAPY IS THE ONLY WAY TO TRY (TRY THE KEY WORD) AND ELIMINATE CANCER, JOHN HOPKINS IS FINALLY STARTING TO TELL YOU THERE IS ALTERNATIVE WAY .

    1. Every person has cancer cells in the body.These cancer cells do not show up in the standard tests until they have multiplied to a few billion. When doctors tell cancer patients that there are no more cancer cells in their bodies after treatment, it just means the tests are unable to detect the cancer cells because they have not reached the detectable size.

    2. Cancer cells occur between 6 to more than 10 times in a person's lifetime.

    3. When the person's immune system is strong the cancer cells will be destroyed and prevented from multiplying and forming tumors.

    4. When a person has cancer it indicates the person has multiple nutritional deficiencies. These could be due to genetic, environmental, food and lifestyle factors.

    5. To overcome the multiple nutritional deficiencies, changing diet and including supplements will strengthen the immune system.

    6. Chemotherapy involves poisoning the rapidly growing cancer cells and also destroys rapidly-growing healthy cells in the bone marrow, gastro-intestinal tract etc, and can cause organ damage, like liver, kidneys, heart, lungs etc.

    7. Radiation while destroying cancer cells also burns, scars and damages healthy cells, tissues and organs.

    8. Initial treatment with chemotherapy and radiation will often reduce tumor size. However prolonged use of chemotherapy and radiation do not result in more tumor destruction.

    9. When the body has too much toxic burden from chemotherapy and radiation the immune system is either compromised or destroyed, hence the person can succumb to various kinds of infections and complications.

    10. Chemotherapy and radiation can cause cancer cells to mutate and become resistant and difficult to destroy. Surgery can also cause cancer cells to spread to other sites.

    11. An effective way to battle cancer is to starve the cancer cells by not feeding it with the foods it needs to multiply.

    CANCER CELLS FEED ON: a. Sugar, is a cancer-feeder.

    By cutting off sugar it cuts off one important food supply to the cancer cells. Sugar substitutes like Nutrasweet, Equal, Spoonful, etc are made with Aspartame and it is harmful. A better natural substitute would be Manuka honey or molasses but only in very small amounts. Table salt has a chemical added to make it white in colour. Better alternative is Bragg's aminos or sea salt. ( THE WEST MADE US 2 CHANGE FROM SEA 2 WHITE IODISED SALT )

    b. Milk causes the body to produce mucus, especially in the gastro-intestinal tract. Cancer feeds on mucus .

    By cutting off milk and substituting with unsweetened soya milk cancer cells are being starved.

    c. Cancer cells thrive in an acid environment.

    A meat-based diet is acidic and it is best to eat fish, and a little chicken rather than beef or pork. Meat also contains livestock antibiotics, growth hormones and parasites, which are all harmful,especially to people with cancer.

    d. A diet made of 80% fresh vegetables and juice, whole grains, seeds, nuts and a little fruits help put the body into an alkaline environment. About 20% can be from cooked food including beans. Fresh vegetable juices provide live enzymes that are easily absorbed and reach down to cellular levels within 15 minutes to nourish and enhance growth of healthy cells. To obtain live enzymes for building healthy cells try and drink fresh vegetable juice (most vegetables including bean sprouts) and eat some raw vegetables 2 or 3 times a day. Enzymes are destroyed at temperatures of 104 degrees F (40 degrees C).

    e. Avoid coffee, tea, and chocolate, which have high caffeine.

    Green tea is a better alternative and has cancer-fighting properties. Water- best to drink purified water, or filtered, to avoid known toxins and heavy metals in tap water. Distilled water is acidic, avoid it.

    12. Meat protein is difficult to digest and requires a lot of digestive enzymes. Undigested meat remaining in the intestines become putrified and leads to more toxic buildup.

    13. Cancer cell walls have a tough protein covering. By refraining from or eating less meat it frees more enzymes to attack the protein walls of cancer cells and allows the body's killer cells to destroy the cancer cells.

    14. Some supplements build up the immune system (IP6, Flor ssence,Essiac, anti-oxidants, vitamins,minerals, EFAs etc.) to enable the body's own killer cells to destroy cancer cells. Other supplements like vitamin E are known to cause apoptosis, or programmed cell death, the body's normal method of disposing of damaged, unwanted, or unneeded cells.

    15. Cancer is a disease of the mind,body, and spirit. A proactive and positive spirit will help the cancer warrior be a survivor.

    Anger, un forgiveness and bitterness put the body into a stressful and acidic environment. Learn to have a loving and forgiving spirit. Learn to relax and enjoy life.

    16. Cancer cells cannot thrive in an oxygenated environment. Exercising daily, and deep breathing help to get more oxygen down to the cellular level. Oxygen therapy is another means employed to destroy cancer cells.

    1. No plastic containers in micro.

    2. No water bottles in freezer.

    3. No plastic wrap in microwave.

    Johns Hopkins has recently sent this out in its newsletters. This information is being circulated at Walter Reed Army Medical Center as well. Dioxin chemicals causes cancer, especially breast cancer.

    Dioxins are highly poisonous to the cells of our bodies. Don't freeze your plastic bottles with water in them as this releases dioxins from the plastic. Recently, Dr. Edward Fujimoto, Wellness Program Manager at Castle Hospital was on a TV program to explain this health hazard.

    He talked about dioxins and how bad they are for us. He said that we should not be heating our food in the microwave using plastic containers. This especially applies to foods that contain fat.

    He said that the combination of fat, high heat, and plastics releases dioxin into the food and ultimately into the cells of the body.

    Instead, he recommends using glass, such as CorningWare, Pyrex or ceramic containers for heating food.

    You get the same results, only without the dioxin. So such things as TV dinners, instant ramen and soups, etc., should be removed from the container and heated in something else. Paper isn't bad but you don't know what is in the paper. It's just safer to use tempered glass, Corning Ware, etc. He reminded us that a while ago some of the fast food restaurants moved away from the foam containers to paper. The dioxin problem is one of the reasons.

    Also, he pointed out that plastic wrap, such as Saran, is just as dangerous when placed over foods to be cooked in the microwave. As the food is nuked, the high heat causes poisonous toxins to actually melt out of the plastic wrap and drip into the food. Cover food with a paper towel instead.
