Using traditional therapies like chemo and radiation to treat your cancer is like dropping the atomic bomb on your body.
They wipe out everything in their path.
While your doc might argue that this “scorched earth” approach will blast away the cancer he’s found… and any other cancer that may be hiding out… it also can kill your healthy tissue.
And that’s what can take you down once and for all.
Within each individual type of cancer, there are a number of different types of cells that can go haywire and start growing out of control.
You need something in your cancer-fighting arsenal that takes out cancer cells – and only cancer cells – with the precision of a SNIPER.
That’s exactly what a funny-looking fungus from an ancient Chinese dynasty can do… particularly if you’re fighting breast cancer.
Foretold… in ancient Chinese poetry?
The lingzhi mushroom (Ganoderma lucidum) was first recorded in the first century.
Researchers found it mentioned in an ancient Chinese poem… though it was described as having existed as many as 100 years before the birth of Christ.
The earliest practitioners of traditional Chinese medicine found the fungus growing on the stumps of maple trees in the forest… and immediately prized it for its ability to provide everlasting life.
Now, you may not live forever… but if you’ve got breast cancer, lingzhi can give you a fighting chance.
In 2016, a published Cochrane Review found that lingzhi can trigger and boost your immune system’s “killer instinct”…
And any cancer cells or tumors that have already started to grow will be placed directly in the crosshairs of your natural army of immune cells.
What’s more, the review found that lingzhi also helped traditional treatments like chemo and radiation work BETTER… without adding to their toxicity.
Specifically, studies have shown this with breast cancer cells and the chemo drug carboplatin.
Lingzhi’s cancer-fighting heroics can be traced to its concentration of anti-cancer compounds known as triterpenes.
One of those triterpenes, ganoderic acid T (GA-T), has also proven to inhibit cell invasion in a lab dish AND in the body.
Two other types of ganoderic acid – abbreviated as GA-Me and -DM – also have shown promise in stopping the spread of cancer and killing specific cancer cell lines.
And they work even better when combined with the mushroom’s naturally-occurring polysaccharides and an alcohol called ganodermanontriol, which can stop invasive, drug-resistant breast cancer cells DEAD in their tracks.
After 2,000 years of existence, our natural supply of this “Mushroom of Immortality” had begun to run out by the 1970s…
But that was a good thing!
When it was only available in the wild, only those in the emperor’s court could afford lingzhi.
It turns out that cultivating this red ’shroom makes it more affordable for the common man. And lingzhi easily feeds off the logs, wood chips, and sawdust where it’s been placed.
Lingzhi is the most bitter out of all the Ganoderma mushrooms, so most folks – even in China – don’t want to eat it whole.
It’s more popularly prepared with hot water and drunk as a kind of tea, or what’s become popularly known as “Ganoderma coffee.”
You may have never heard of lingzhi by its Chinese name… but you may be more familiar with it by its Japanese name.
It’s the same mushroom known as reishi.
