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.

Cancer Knowledge - Must Know



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.
