Dear Mr. Mgr. Stitch. I am turning to you on the basis of the information my colleague has provided me for some time ... But now I'm going to the point. For my wife, who introduced the onco-therapeutic modalities "fighting" with the type of illness mentioned, I started to pack one TaiwanTCM Liang ginseng. I hope that it could contribute positively to suppress the symptoms of the underlying oncological disease itself, also to eliminate the undesirable effects of treatment = surgery, radiotherapy, chemotherapy, hormonal therapy, after 4 years of repeated / other chemotherapy, this time with more significant side effects. I also learned about the possible beneficial effects of extracts from the Trametes versicolor mushroom. I would therefore urgently ask you for information on these effects and how this medicine is used. To write an article about Trametes versicolor on your ADAPTOGENY.cz website I have been in vain for a long time. If I can ask, I would welcome your early answer because, due to the very nature of the illness, the situation is potentially seen to be quite terrible, but I still believe / hope for a positive reversal during ongoing onco-treatment. For your understanding and the short answer I thank you in advance and I remain with your greetings MUDr. Martin M. (Slovakia)
HER2 + breast cancer :
Hello, Mr. Martine.
I am happy to finally get to your letter, I would first like to express my great pleasure in having the opportunity to communicate with your doctor. I myself have chosen neurobiology as a specialty, and if I had obeyed my mother who wanted me to study medicine , I would have tended to be neurosurgery. Communicating with an expert like you I appreciate mainly because I do not have to explain to you a thousand things about tumors and their progression, immunity, pharmaceutical practices, etc. Instead, you could certainly explain a lot to me, but I can not tell you at this point burden.
So in medias res ...
Genuine woman in cancer treatment
As a biologist I can tell you about 100% of the ginseng that it is not something that would be " alternative " in the sense of non lege artis. Ginseng is the strongest means of regenerating the immune system after irradiation or similar damage (poisons, cytostatics) that contemporary science possesses. Even though this is not highlighted today, the Japanese Immunologist and Radiation Specialist Morio Yonezawa stated it in the 1980s about ginseng. His profile can be found in the Japanese ReaD database, citing in this context his publication Yonezawa1976rri , Yonezawa1981rri , Yonezawa1985rri . And since then, no new SciFi tablets have been detected against radioactivity. A larger number of references can be found in the article " The Effect of Ginseng against Radiation Burdens ", which I am finalizing.
As for the direct anticancer effects of ginseng, the research situation is a little more complicated. As you know, cancer research is extremely popular because our entire western scientometry system (which, unfortunately, blindly adopts in the East) is set to neglect minority themes and make popular themes even more popular. The smallest of Impakt's factors is the science that is the most difficult - mathematics. So, a lot of publications about the effects of ginseng against cancer have, I think, about a third or a quarter of their real justification, and the rest were recovered from an emergency - someone quickly needed publication in a high Impakt factor magazine, published something about ginseng beforehand After a combination of ginseng and cancer. Summarizing sum, ginseng for some oncology indications will probably be directly beneficial, but compared to its other effects, this indication is relatively low.
Ganoderma lucidum and Trametes versicolor in the treatment of cancer:
With tumors, it's always a roulette, but after memory, I know that glossy skin improves the prognosis of a variety of oncological diagnoses in a fairly good way. Glossy has a royal reputation in the Czech Republic (the immortal sponge, etc.), which is even better than the ginseng's reputation. This good reputation is also a guide for us: Today it is known that TCM was not (and is not) essentially unscientific, it only puts much more emphasis on generational knowledge transfer in unchanged form and uses somewhat different Latin (Taoist terminology) for internal writing. Unfortunately, our co-worker, who dealt with the mechanisms of the effect of the glossy mirror, took time off for an indefinite period, so the whole topic is now waiting for me. There are more than 700 publications on the glossy textbook in Medlajn , the abstracts of which can be read by all and some are publicly accessible and their full text.
As far as the Trametes versicolor is concerned , you might want to use the older synonym Coriolus versicolor if you check what is published about it. In the research of this fungus, it has been an interesting phenomenon that the name Trametes uses mostly biological publications about the life and ecology of this fungus, while the research of their curative effects is the oldest name Coriolus. Under it, to date, 262 publications can be found on Medlajn, from which it would appear that the anticancer effects of this fungus are not a superstition. As with the gloss, the details of Trametes, respectively. Outbreaks colorful, as Czech mycologists christened this sponge, I have not yet. Otherwise, the miraculous stories of cancer cure at Trametes are not an emergency. But if we do not pay too much attention to these individual cases, for me, for instance, it is a fundamental fact that Trametes is very popular in Japan for anti-cancer indications.
Under the influence of your letter, I will try to maximize the revision of Ganoderma and Trametes texts in order to give readers at least the basic idea I am now trying to disconnect from you. If I fail in time, it will soon be possible to read about the effects of these mushrooms in the latest book Mushrooms and their curative effects from living legends of tropical botany, prof. Pavel Valíček.
In the case of cancer, it is necessary to use the gloss and the out-of-the-box in the appropriate amount. This type of natural medicines is often adjusted to Powder Concentrate (Forte), where 1 gram of powder contains extracted active substances corresponding to several grams of ground mushrooms. How the powdered vehicle is concentrated by the majority of the mature adult fruit of a given type of fungus. The concentrate allows the use of larger doses and more reliable absorption of the active substances. In the forefront of research and processing of medicinal mushrooms, the East Asian countries and particularly Taiwan , where the sequencing and annotation project of glossy gloss genome has been completed.
Finally, I do not forgive the remark on the issue today that the availability of harmless and at the same time effective natural remedies threatens the most: Building bureaucratic barriers that stretch across the world from the EU through the WTO.
In particular, the Trametes versicolor (Trametes versicolor) automatically became a novel food under the new EU directives, ie sale is prohibited if someone is not willing to embark on a bureaucratic process of obtaining special permits from Of the EU institutions. This makes it practically impossible in the foreseeable future to legally sell this fungus in the EU in the food category . Sales of this sponge in the category of drugs in practice prevent high fixed fees and pharmaceutical registration procedures, for herbs completely inappropriate.
Institutionalisation of natural resources, prohibitions on specific herbs, blanket ban on what to label the "novel food" label (despite thousands of years of experience!), Prohibitions on the disclosure of information on the medicinal properties of medicinal plants, etc., are presented under the auspices of improving and evaluating phytotherapy, Their goal is far too obvious: to reduce the freedom of doctors and laymen to decide on therapy and to transfer it to the supra-state bodies acting on pharmaceutical cartels. This process will have a very bad impact on the health of Europeans and the economy of Europe. About this current topic more on nedejmesiprirodu.cz
