Affected by long-term marketing publicity, most people only think of Ganoderma lucidum when they encounter cancer. Yes, adjuvant treatment of tumor and reducing the side effects of radiotherapy and chemotherapy are indeed one of the main functions of Ganoderma lucidum, but it is not the whole of Ganoderma lucidum.
Professor Lin Zhibin from Peking University, who was invited to give a keynote speech at the salon themed on Ganoderma and Massive Health, has been engaged in the clinical and pharmacological research of Ganoderma for nearly 50 years. He clearly pointed out in the speech on Ganoderma and Health China – Strengthening Body resistance and Healthcare that Ganoderma, the clinical medicine of“treating occurring diseases”, can treat at least the following diseases in addition to adjuvant therapy for cancers:Chronic bronchitis, recurrent respiratory infections, asthma, hyperlipidemia, hypertension, diabetes and its complications, neurasthenia, insomnia, menopausal syndrome, benign prostatic hyperplasia, hepatitis, leukopenia, and mushroom poisoning.
In terms of“preventive treatment of disease”, Lin Zhibin has made several clinical studies including the improvement of sleep and memory (related to the nervous system), the improvement of male and female climacteric syndrome (related to the endocrine), the improvement of immunity, the enhancement of the body's antioxidant capacity, the improvement of fatty liver, the reduction of blood fat, blood pressure and blood sugar, as well as the enhancement of athletes' physical tolerance and anti-fatigue ability. It shows that Reishi Mushroom has a wide range of health effects and can prevent diseases.
Professor Lin Zhibin said that the reason why Ganoderma has such a wide range of effects of preventing and curing diseases is mainly related to Ganoderma’s function in strengthening body resistance.
Lingzhi can regulate the functions of the vital organs of the body. Especially its regulation of the "neurological system - endocrine system - immune system" network plays a key role in strengthening the body. This effect is beneficial to the steady-state regulation of the body. So when the body is exposed to internal or external stimuli (such as germs, cancer cells), it tends to maintain a steady state and maintain good health.
Therefore, the efficacy of Ganoderma s more than anti-tumor! The comprehensive function of disease prevention and treatment is its core value.
Therefore, Professor Lin Zhibin particularly emphasized in his speech, "The essence of Lingzhi culture is to prevent and cure diseases. Once leaving aside the concept of disease prevention and treatment, it will be meaningless to talk about Ganoderma culture."
However, in view of the fact that most people are reluctant to spend money on prevention but spend money on salvage and ultimately fail to save lives and health, Professor Lin Zhibin particularly emphasized that the promotion of Ganoderma culture is mainly to highlight the value of Ganoderma lucidum on health care. After all, "one ounce (28.35 grams) of gold prevention is better than a pound (454 grams) of gold treatment". Rather than spend a lot of money in curing disease, it is better to spend less money in buying health – when you still afford it.
