The prestigious Japanese doctor, Dr Fukumi Morishige, M.D., Phd., who was involved in the research of Ganoderma role in cancer control, is a researcher at the Linus Pauling Institute of Science & Medicine – an American institute that had been awarded the most Nobel prizes. He also occupies an important role in Europe’s medical field and he is the only Japanese authority employed by the international cancer group.

The following is his speech and case reports on Ganoderma mushroom.
I have been a surgeon for 37 years and have performed numerous operations. I have a keen interest in surgery especially when I was young but gradually questions began to appear. I’ve always felt that the ideal would be to induce the natural immunity power within oneself.  Being a surgeon, I had countless occasions to encounter cancer cases; however, the key to cancer controls is in its early detection, which is easier said than done. About one in a hundred would be considered a good percentage.  Nowadays, regular physical check-ups is the trend and this is good practice, but we have to realize that one cannot let our guards down just because cancer was not detected at the time of check-ups. It is better to employ preventive measures in the case of cancer but there are no set methods. One can always rely on dietary control, but here again it is not a prescribed regiment. The best method at the present is Ganoderma. I do not know of its amazing effects until after I have used it and I am truly surprised. During my practice, I have obtained outstanding results using Ganoderma either as preventive measures or during the course of treatments.  Earlier on, I have come across patients and their relatives praising the merits of Ganoderma. But being a medical person, I have thought that it might have a slight effect on certain chronic diseases but on cancer, surely, must be greatly exaggerated. In June of 1986, a 39-year-old female came to me with lung cancer and complications of the chest wall membrane. She had been told that she could not be operated on by a number of hospitals. She left in a hopeless state. Upon returning home, her husband started to feed her Ganoderma. After my examination, I was surprised by the findings: Six months ago, she had edema in the chest cavity, secondary to cancer and now the symptom had completely disappeared. For a person who have already made her funeral arrangement and waiting for her death, and then to rediscover there is hope for life, is incredible. X-ray had presented an even better picture when I am going through her medical history. She insisted that this was the result of her husband giving her Ganoderma. The edema had drained while the cancer tumor remained. On a rough calculation, this patient had used about 4 grams of Ganoderma essence daily and this was quite a high dosage. We further undertook exploratory surgery and by using special freeze technique, it was possible to perform operations on chest membrane cancer. Looking at the x-ray, no cancerous cells were found. Only scar tissues were evident, which were different from cancer cells. I did a biopsy of the lung tissues and detected malignancy, but stable.

“The next case involved a child with congenital liver cancer. He had one operation when he was 5 years old and later, had his small intestines removed due to metasiasis. The treating doctor felt that the patient’s condition was terminal and stopped treatment eventually. The boy’s parents brought the patient home and fed him Ganoderma through an N.G. tube (Nasogastric tube). The boy came to me when he was 9 and I was unable to detect any diseases. Nothing was found in the CT scan examination as well. Congenital liver cancer is a form of juvenile carcinoma and I was much surprised that the patient recovered after just regular ingestion of several grams of Ganoderma essence. He continues to take 2 grams of the essence daily. Even the boy knows that without the Ganoderma mushroom, he might not have lived today. Juvenile carcinoma is usually fatal, but then this patient remains alive and healthy with no physical ailments are truly amazing.” Immunogloburin test determines the level of immunity. We have found that after ingesting Ganoderma, level of IgA, IgG, IgM have increased. This proves that Ganoderma can elevate the body’s resistance level.  At this time, I have 140 cancer patients. All have mestastic cancer except 6 with breast cancer and 60 are being hospitalized. We have zeroed in on these cancer patients. Up to today (spring of 1988), about 300 patients have undergone testing.

Why Is Ganoderma Effective Against Cancer? Polysaccarides

Before I give case examples, I would like to unveil the secret of why Ganoderma is so effective in the treatment of cancer. The conclusion is not fully understood at the present time and when it is, then, men would have found the ultimate cure for cancer. Employing all the latest medical technology, it is found that the polysaccharides in Ganoderma are effective in suppressing cancerous cells. Japanese scientists are the first in making this discovery. Perhaps this had something to do with the fact that the country employs herbal medicine in treatment of diseases and conducts vigorous researches into polysaccharides. This fact is recognized in North America and is further awaiting findings from such Japanese researches. 


Why Are Polysacchrides in Ganoderma Effective In The Treatment of Cancer? Polysaccharides are made up of a high number of molecular components – up to millions of atoms and this makes it difficult to be absorbed into the human body system. In order to make it easily assimilated, its high count has to be lowered, and using Vitamin C with Ganoderma does just that. The polysaccharides are converted into oligoglucan that has a low molecular count and can be easily absorbed. It in turns stimulates the macrophage, which triggers the immune system in our body. Macre meaning big. This type of cell can devour any foreign organisms. They are not active when the body is functioning normally, but, in the presence of foreign organisms (e.g. bacteria), they become very active in attacking such bacterial foreign matters. The white blood cells in the blood stream comprise the initial defense against diseases but they are ineffective in chronic cases or malignant type of matters, at which time, the lymphocyte becomes the second line of defense. Failing that, the last defense will be the macrophage – it is like a sleeping lion being awakened to attack with truly exceptional result! They are capable of sweeping away any foreign organisms thus destroying the cancerous cells in the process. Under the microscope, the macrophage is observed to be one tenth the size of a cancer cell, yet, it possesses the power to destroy the latter. From this, we can understand their invaluability to the human body. However, the macrophage cannot be easily activated. We have found that aggregated atoms are responsible for this activation of the macrophage, and reishi contains the substance to manufacture these aggregated atoms. 


Ganoderma – A High Molecular Polysaccharides

Earlier a patient with high blood pressure had inquired into the effects of Ganoderma. I had told him that there was certainly no harm in trying as I had conducted research at that time. One fact is: even a diluted dose of Ganoderma essence lowers blood pressure. However this patient had maintained his blood pressure level after Ganoderma ingestion. Following my suggestion to ingest Vitamin C together with Ganoderma, his blood pressure dropped to an acceptable level. The reason for this is, as mentioned previously, Ganoderma contains up to a million atoms and cannot be easily absorbed into the body; therefore, one should combine it with Vitamin C.  Seventeen years ago, I have conducted research into the Vitamin C’s ability to break down polysaccharides. At that time, the method of viscosity gauge has been employed. Placing Vitamin C into a measure of polysaccharide substance, a decrease of the polysaccharides molecular count is indicated by a drop in the viscosity. Thus, confirming Vitamin C’s ability of dissolving polysaccharides.  Animal experiments have shown that all forms of sugar can be absorbed but are just the opposite in human, why? This has some correlation with Vitamin C – human body is unable to manufacture Vitamin C, while animals can. This is the reason why we need to combine the intake of Vitamin C with Ganoderma.  New medical findings indicate that there is no harm in taking high dosage of Vitamin C daily. Dr. Linus Pauling, who is now in his 80’s, ingests 18 grams of Vitamin C daily, and I ingest 12 grams a day. I believe a healthy person needs a supplement of 1 gram to 2 grams a day, that is 1,000 – 2,000 mg. This can contribute greatly to one’s well being. 

Brain tumor patient recovering consciousness in just 2 months. 

We have made many discoveries. Using brain disease patients as examples, one 70 years old plus patient in the hospital had a 5 cm brain tumor. He had already lost consciousness despite surgery. He began the Ganoderma treatment around June of 1986 and by September, he had recovered his senses, but the size of the tumor had remained the same. However by December, the tumor had decreased in size, even the neurologist was amazed. The patient now feels very well. Initially he was administered 6 grams of Ganoderma essence through a stomach tube. After the recovery of his senses, oral intake was administered. The patient did not like the bitter taste of Ganoderma essence, so the amount was reduced to 3 grams. Although the dosage had been reduced, his brain tumor eventually shrunk to about 1 cm. With the return of his memory, he left the hospital and stayed home with the family instead. 

Recession of lung cancer within 6 months. 

I once treated a 50 yr-plus female patient who had breast cancer. After her breast surgery, she had developed metastasic lung cancer. Later she deteriorated to hemoptysis. She began to use about 6 gm. of Ganoderma daily for 6 months and the cancerous lung tumor disappeared. Before, she is often short of breath, but now she can walk up the stairs effortlessly. Therefore, she has complete confidence in the continuation of the Ganoderma treatment. 

Breast cancer cured in 2 months with mega dosage. 

This patient had breast cancer and the cancer cells had matastased to the bones. She had not been able to move from the head down. The pain was excruciating. Luckily, her digestive system was not affected and she was able to take 9 grams of Ganoderma essence daily, which was later increased, to 20 grams. In just 2 months, she felt no pain. She had been discharged from the hospital after she made progress in her walking ability. 

Cancer of rectum spreading to the liver with remarkable recovery in 6 months.

Some time ago, this patient came to the hospital for treatment of metastasis of rectal cancer to the liver. He was given 6 grams of Ganoderma essence. In 6 months, CT scanning reported that the cancerous tumor had decreased to about 1 cm in size, but the CT specialists did not believe in the merits of reishi and insisted that there was a mistake in the scanning. I was angered by this and argued that not only had the patient’s CEA swelling came down but his general health had also improved. Was it not enough proof? Ordinarily, it is difficult to treat rectal cancers. Some cases are even terminal. This patient had such a smooth recovery which could only be credited to reishi. Generally speaking, it is easier to treat rectal tumor under 3 cm in size. 

Pancreas cancer patient can walk again. 

A 60 year old male pancreas cancer patient had surgery and was in a better state for a while, but later deteriorated. He had edema and lost weight. Examination results revealed that he had extremely high count of CA19-9CEA. I informed him that with his present treatment he would die within a short period of time. I advised him to be hospitalized. Due to financial reasons, he was given another kind of medication but he reacted unfavorably to it. Therefore, we had to change his treatment to 9 grams of Ganoderma essence orally and 30 grams of Vitamin C through intravenous injection daily. This began from August of 1986 which was over 1 year ago. The patient had since completely recovered and various examinations could not detect symptoms of any kind. He has gone back to work but continues to take 5 grams of Ganoderma daily. He comes for a follow-up examination every 2 weeks and repeat CEA examinations show that his CA19-19 counts continues to drop. There is many more such cancer cases in my hospital. Although cancer cases involving the brain, lungs and liver are more serious, I feel that it is easier to treat than the cases involving the digestive organs. It is harder for the patients of the latter to ingest Ganoderma orally. Besides cancer, Ganoderma is also very effective in the treatment of hepatitis. With the use of 1 gram to 3 grams of Ganoderma essence daily, hepatitis patients will have tremendous recovery results. 

Hepatitis cured with Ganoderma

One patient who had hepatitis for a few years and his SGOT & SGPT count was 200 – 300. Normal range is under 30. I administered 3 grams of Ganoderma daily and in about 2 -3 months his SGOT & SGPT dropped to around 50. Even this is still higher than normal, continuous use will bring it in range. During this time, I asked him to stop using Ganoderma and immediately the count shot up to between 150 – 200. The count dropped when treatment resumed. Thus proving the effect of Ganoderma on hepatitis. A combination with the use of Vitamin C is essential. Under these conditions, 6 grams of Vitamin C is needed, i.e. 3 grams of Ganoderma essence with 6 grams of Vitamin C. We must understand that hepatitis is a chronic disease and relapse is ever present. It is necessary to continue the intake of Ganoderma (using smaller dosage) even after one’s recovery from hepatitis. Prevention is always the best measure. Ganoderma is just as effective against other chronic diseases and optimum results are obtained when combined with the intake of Vitamin C. Especially true for long term prevention use. In conclusion, Ganoderma has been proven to exert significant effect on diminishing pain, fortifying the body’s immune system and prolonging life. Even though its role in cancer control has not been determined 100 percent yet. Medications presently employed to combat cancer have their effect but unfortunately these also produce serious side effects. Ganoderma have a history of 3,000 years, during which time it is widely used by many people with no reported unfavorable side effects. I therefore recommend Ganoderma for treatment and prevention as a safety measure. I hope that people from all walks of life will take a concerned interest and share in this project. Hopefully, in the very near future, Ganoderma can bring a brighter outlook to the human race in the conquest of longevity.


Ganoderma – Could It Help In The Treatment Of Cancer?

By definition, Ganoderma is a “mushroom” from the green and vibrant Mycetes plant kingdom where short and tiny fungi that are unable to manufacture their own food like green plants through photosynthesis thrive. Within the plant kingdom, Ganoderma Lucidum belongs to a superior grade. Of all the many edible fungi in the kingdom, the Ganoderma mushroom stands out in its significant medicinal values.  Although Ganoderma may seem trivial to most people for it leads a parasitic life by breaking down and surviving on nutrients of other plants and animals, there is more to this mushroom than meets the eye.  Known as the “superior herb, Ganoderma Lucidum is a rare variety of mushroom credited with the highest medicinal qualities in the Ancient China and is also a subject of many researches by various universities and organizations in the modern times. Also known as “Linghzi” in China which is considered as an  auspicious medicine because of its medical efficacy and “Reishi” in Japan which is called, the God’s  Herbs, Ganoderma’s worldwide popularity as a powerful medicinal herb continues to increase and is now    mass-produced to help combat one of the dreaded diseases of today cancer.

Ganoderma works best in the treatment of cancer because it helps cleanse the entire body from toxins  while it strengthens immunity. It also contributes to the improvement of liver function while it stimulates the regeneration of liver cells providing a very important supplement for those people who have liver cancer. Aside enhancing liver detoxification, the anti-cancer agents in Ganoderma which include Germanium and polysaccharides. The polysaccharide fraction of Ganoderma is responsible for its antitumor efficacy.  The indications for Ganoderma use in cancer include supplementation to reduce side-effects during radiotherapy or chemotherapy, to prolong survival, to improve quality of life, and to prevent occurrence or recurrence. While Ganoderma is used as a supplement during chemotherapy or radiotherapy to reduce side-effects such as loss of appetite, fatigue, hair loss, and risk of infection, it can also reduce the toxic and lessen the pains during the sessions particularly to cancer patients at terminal stages. Aside from  helping the immune and endocrine system to prevent tumors, help improve the circulation and eliminate harmful free radicals, other qualities of Ganoderma that help in the treatment of cancer include the inhibition of DNA synthesis of the cancer cells, destroying the terminal enzyme activity of the tumor cells  and restrain the spread of cancer cells.  Still, while Ganoderma has been recognized traditionally and scientifically as potentially useful in the treatment of cancer, there is still a notable discrepancy whether it can totally cure the Big C because of the lack of clinical trials demonstrating its efficacy. Despite these controversies, studies still suggest that though Ganoderma and its derivatives are not pharmaceuticals and have not undergone rigorous clinical trials to be tested against the disease, there are indirect clinical evidences to support its supplemental use in cancer.

Aside from being the biggest potential in curing cancer, the need to take Ganoderma is still indispensable for many illnesses are caused by the imbalance of body functions due to the accumulated toxins in the body. Apart from removing the build-up of toxins, Ganoderma also protects and detoxifies the liver, prevents and cures heart diseases while it slows the aging process. It also has positive effect on insomnia, being a cure for high blood pressure and as effective treat diabetes. While it serves as a treatment for chronic bronchitis and asthma, Ganoderma also has effect on hyper susceptibility and is used as a beauty care medicine for the skin.
