Anti-cancer effects of Lingzhi (Ganoderma)

On 18th February 2014, there was a news published in theStar newspaper. The header “Rise in cancer deaths in M’sia“.

The incidence of cancer in Malaysia increased from 32,000 new cases in 2008 to 37,400 in 2012. This number is expected to rise to 56,932 by 2025 if no action is taken.

In fact, cancer is listed as top 10 killer diseases in Malaysia. In my age, 35 years ago, I have heard many passed away because of cancer. Indeed, cancer is one of the diseases which people are afraid the most including myself. What is worrying is it is not easy to detect cancer and usually when detected, the cancer is at an alarming stage. This is because the human body is unable to detect any symptoms when just a single cell or even as many as thousands are cancerous.

“All of us have cancer cells in our bodies. But not all of us will develop cancer.” Dr. David Servan-Schreiber.

 

Cancer Stages

These are the tumor development stages defined by American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC)

  1. Early Stage: Tumor tissues still remain in one area with no signs of metastasis.
  2. Intermediate Stage: Cancer cells have proliferated to the lymph node but have not yet invaded other organs.
  3. Advanced Stage: Cancer cells have proliferated to the lymph nodes and other organs.
  4. Terminal Stage: Cancer cells have metastasized to distant organs.

Conventional Treatment

Conventional treatments adviced by the doctors will be surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy. But this conventional methods bring much side-effects to the cancer patient.

There is another type of newer treatment called Immunotherapy. Immunotherapy is treatment that uses your body’s own immune system to help fight cancer. This treatment is better compare to chemotherapy but very expensive. In Malaysia, Bangsar medical centre got this Immunotherapy treatment. It costs RM 9,500 for one jab and the cancer patient has to take ten jabs for a cancer treatment.

Citigroup analysts expect such “immunotherapies” to cost around $110,000 in the United States for a year’s worth of treatment and $80,000 in the rest of the world

In 18th July 2010, Berita Harian newspaper published that the cost of cancer treatment can reach up to RM 300, 000!

Kos perubatan rawatan kanser boleh menokok sehingga RM300,000 sementara rawatan buah pinggang memerlukan RM150,000 ke atas. Pemindahan organ utama pula memerlukan sekurang-kurangnya RM100,000. 

Better Treatment (Conventional Treatment + Lingzhi and Pollen)DSCF2322 - Copy

While conventional treatment is unavoidable, you take quality health food to reduce these side-effects and change to have healthier lifestyle (i.e. exercise and eat right food), positive emotion and laugh more. For health food, Lingzhi and Bee Pollen are the best choice around. Why bee pollen for cancer?

Bee Pollen’s Role on Cancer (source)

Bee pollen extracted from Cystus incanus and Salix alba plants may reduce the chromosome damage to healthy cells induced by chemotherapy medications, according to a study published in the September 2010 issue of the “European Journal of Medicinal Chemistry.” Thus, it may be used as a food supplement for cancer patients, the authors of the study say. Another study, published in the November 2007 issue of the journal “Phytotherapy Research,” found that steroids extracted from the bee pollen of the Brassica campestris plant promote apoptosis, or programmed cell death, of human prostate cancer cells in the laboratory. Several phenolic compounds isolated from the Cystus incanus plant can help stabilize free radicals and prevent them from damaging the DNA and proteins of healthy cells, and thereby lowering the risk of cancer, says a study in the March 2009 issue of the journal “Food and Chemical Toxicology.” However, the benefits of bee pollen have been proven in laboratory animals only.

But Best Strategy – Prevention is better than cure

The better strategy to treat cancer is by prevention. More specifically is to maintain a strong immune system. This is because when our immune system is solid, the natural killer cell from our immune system will kill the formation of cancer cells (if any). And for that, one of my recommendation will be to take Lingzhi and Bee Pollen. Many researches and tests have been done to prove the effectiveness of Lingzhi to cure cancer.

Clinical Studies

  • A randomized double-blind, placebo-controlled, multicenter clinical trial was conducted on 68 advanced lung cancer patients. All of them were treated with Ganoderma lucidum. After 12 weeks, patients showed a significant increase in natural killer (NK) cells compare to control group. Note: NK cells are to kill cancer cells (Source).
  • 34 patients of advanced stage cancer were treated with Ganoderma. After 12 weeks, results showed significantly enhanced immune responses which ordinarily are reduced or damanged in patients undergoing chemotherapy/radiotherapy. This confirms the in vivo studies that Ganoderma polysaccharides are able to activate macrophages, T lymphocytes and NK cells (Source).

Not only that, there are many testimonies of real people who recovered from cancer after consuming Lingzhi. Here are some real stories. There are a lot more which I have not yet copied over to this website.
