Dear Master, I read in the British Journal of Cancer about the effects of the fungus Phellinus linteus. Because I treat cu mummy, I'd like to know if you can help me get it. Sincerely, MUDr. Hana P.
Dear Mrs. Hano,
The cultivation technology has not yet been available for the Phellinus linteus . Today (2011) it is offered by Asian producers in Korea and Taiwan, in time may somehow get to the Czech Republic. Firebird is otherwise a member of the Polyporales anti- cancerous fungi , of which I would also recommend to you more famous Glossy Glossy Ganoderma lucidum and Coriolus versicolor , more recently Trametes versicolor . Glossy gloss is the most well-known and best-researched anti-cancer fungi for many types of cancer. Outcome varied also has proven anti-cancer effects and is very popular in Japan. Unfortunately, the harmless variety (which grows even in our forests) in the EU is unreasonably forbidden .
I would like to add to the effect of wood-destroying fungi that, according to the present knowledge, it mainly works by activating the cytotoxic response of the immune system with its proteoglycans (polysaccharides). Prof. Horák (long-time associate of the deceased MUDr. Fortyna, a discoverer and propagator of so-called devitalization) also advised Ovosan and the RESAN antitumor vaccine in personal communication for cancer patients . The common denominator of all approaches based on activation of the immune system is that if your immune system is damaged by cytostatics or irradiation, the approaches that rely on it will work less. Therefore, the most appropriate time to use immune system activating drugs, such as medicinal sponges, is in the prevention phase. If you have offspring that could threaten the same tumor, they should remember it. It does not mean, however, that anticancer fungi are ineffective for simultaneous cytostatic treatments. I would also recommend to you ginseng with its medicinal triterpenoids ( panaxosides ). Triterpenoids also occur in glossy gloss (ganoderic acid, etc.). I wish you much luck that you will definitely need in your case.
