Reishi (Ganoderma lucidum) – A Traditional Chinese Medicinal Herb
Oct 11, 2009
Reishi is the most searched medicinal mushroom on the Internet, used in China for at least two millennia as a panacea to alleviate things from everyday nuisances like the common cold or skin disorders to terminal conditions such as cancer.
Born in Japan, Dr. Morishige was unavoidably familiar with reishi long before hearing of its use in cancer treatment. Naturally, he believed the same as any other medically trained professional, that perhaps reishi might yield some marginal results on benign conditions but he felt certain any further claims were surely exaggerated. Not until two of his own cancer patients exhibited signs of remission, which they attributed to their use of reishi, did his curiosity peak ...
After that, there was the case of the young boy with congenital liver cancer. Four years before he came to see Dr. Morishige, the boy’s original doctor had sent him home with his parents, claiming the condition was terminal and there was nothing he could do to help. But when Dr. Morishige examined the now 9-year-old-boy, he could find no trace of the tumor. The boy’s parents said they had been giving their son reishi via his naso-gastric feeding tube. This is when Dr. Morishige decided that reishi deserved a closer look ...

Wellness in a cup of Nescafé
July 17, 2009
MANILA, Philippines - Since this was going to be my first trip to Bicol I prepared well for it. Several days before I left I tasted some laing and Bicol express, which I was told are the hottest dishes in the province. I also had my fill of sweet pili nuts, to cap the spicy Bicolandia dishes.

Mushroom 'offers miracle cure'
May 21, 2009
THOUSANDS of people in Bahrain are turning to a "miracle" mushroom said to help combat potentially deadly diseases, including cancer. But it should be taken only as an aid and not instead of normal medical treatment, its importers said yesterday.
Indian microbiologist Dr K K Janardhanan said research he has conducted over several years at the Amala Cancer Research Institute in Thrissur, Kerala, had proved beyond doubt that the mushroom powder, consumed regularly as a food supplement, had actually helped patients who were suffering from potentially fatal diseases.
"Tests on animals, on whom tumours had been induced, and reports we have received from patients whose side effects of drugs were greatly reduced, have led us to publish studies in several international medical journals of repute," Dr Janardhanan said at a Press conference in Manama.

Olympic athletes queue to try old Chinese remedies
August 12, 2008
To the Games hosts, it was the perfect chance to showcase treatments developed long before the Ancient Greeks met to compete in Olympia. So it is that, for the first time in Olympic history, the athletes' village is equipped with a clinic offering traditional Chinese treatments.
Reports suggest that the initiative is proving to be a success. Sui Ma, a practitioner at the clinic, told The Times: “We have had many athletes coming in. Some have come in with old traumas that perhaps haven't been recognised. Also, because it's a very strong competition, many people have new injuries.”
Beneath glass counters in the Tongrentang store are dried bird's nests, to help to “stimulate the vital forces” and to treat coughs and colds, as well as dried sea horses, which heal bumps and bruises and are best consumed boiled or with alcohol. The ideal treatment for athletes appears to be glossy ganoderma. The enormous mushroom, which grows on the mountains of Liaoning province, calms the body, relieves asthma and can aid sleep.
