HER2 + breast cancer: Medicinal mushrooms and ginseng

Dear Mgr. Štítnicka. I appeal to you based on the information you gave me long ago my colleague ... But now I come to the substance. For my wife, who established onco-therapeutic modalities "fights" with that kind of disease, I start to convey one pack of ginseng TaiwanTCM Liang. I hope that this would perhaps positive way to contribute both to the suppression of the symptoms of the actual basic cancer, also to eliminate the side effects of treatment = surgery, radiotherapy, chemotherapy, hormonal therapy, after 4 years of repeated / other chemotherapy, this time with significant side effects. I learned but also the potential beneficial effects of extracts from mushrooms Trametes versicolor. I would ask you to ask for information regarding these effects and how to use this drug. On finishing writing an article on Trametes versicolor on your website vainly waiting for a long time. If I may ask, I would welcome your earliest convenience, because due to the very nature of the disease, I see the situation potentially be quite formidable, but still believe / hope for a possible positive twist in the ongoing onco-treatment. For understanding early reply and thank you in advance and I remain sincerely MD. M. Martin (Slovakia)

HER2 + breast cancer :

Good morning, Mr. Martin.

I am glad that finally brings your letter, I would like first to express my extreme pleasure over the fact that I have the opportunity to communicate with your doctor stamping. I myself chose a specialization in neurobiology and if I'd listened to my mother, who wished to go to study medicine , I guess I was also inclined to neurosurgery. Communicating with an expert like you appreciate mainly because you do not have to explain a thousand things about tumors and their course, prognosis, immunity, pharmaceutical practice, etc. In this way you would on the contrary certainly could explain a lot of you I give you but at this point certainly can not burden.

So, in medias res ...

Ginseng in the treatment of cancer

As a biologist I can respect ginseng 100% confirm that there is in any case this is not something that would be " alternative " in the sense of non lege artis. Ginseng is the strongest means to regenerate the immune system after radiation or similar damage (poisons, cytostatics) how current science has. Although it does not emphasize today is very, already in the 80s to a Japanese ginseng noted immunologist and specialist in radiation Morio Yonezawa. His profile can be found in the Japanese database Reade, citing in this context its publication Yonezawa1976rri , Yonezawa1981rri , Yonezawa1985rri . And since we have no new SciFi tablet against radioactivity appeared. Larger quantities of references can be found in the article " The effect of ginseng against radiation burden ," which gradually finishing.

Regarding the direct anticancer effect of ginseng , there is a situation in research more complicated. As you know, cancer research is extremely popular because our whole system of Western preoccupation (which unfortunately blindly assume in the East) is set so that the minority has neglected and popular themes makes even more popular. The lowest of the impact factor is the science that is difficult - mathematics. So from the many publications on the effects of ginseng against cancer has, I think, about a third or a quarter of its real justification, and the rest were obtained from an emergency - someone quickly needed a publication in journals with high impact factor published previously about ginseng and so reached after combination of ginseng and cancer. In sum, ginseng for some cancer indications will probably be directly beneficial, compared with its other effects, this is a relatively unreliable indicator.

Ganoderma lucidum (Reishi mushroom glossy) and Trametes versicolor (Trametes versicolor) in cancer treatment:

The tumor is always roulette, but from memory I know that Reishi quite a good way to improve prognosis in various cancer diagnoses. Reishi has ever royal reputation in TCM (fungus immortal etc.), which is to some extent an even better reputation than ginseng. That reputation is a guide for us: Today, we know that TCM was not (and is not) in principle unscientific, only puts much more emphasis on generational knowledge transfer in unchanged form and internal recording information using somewhat different Latin (Taoist terminology). Unfortunately, our colleague who dealt with mechanisms of action lesklokorvky took off indefinitely, so the whole topic is now waiting for me. About lesklokorce is otherwise Medlajn over 700 publications, abstracts which you can read by all and some are publicly available in full as well.

Regarding the hub Trametes versicolor , so if you check what is published about her, must use the older synonym Coriolus versicolor . In research of this fungus has been an interesting phenomenon that the name Trametes used mostly biological publications on the life and ecology of this fungus, while research their medicinal effects experienced by the older name of Coriolus. Below him to date can be found on Medlajn 262 publications, of which it would seem that the anticancer effects of this fungus are not superstition. Like Reishi, details of operation Trametes, respectively. Trametes versicolor, as we christened this fungus Czech mycologists, I also still did not produce. Otherwise, the miraculous stories of healing cancer in Trametes abound. But even if that individual cases do not pay too much attention, so for me it is essential, for example, the fact that Trametes anticancer indications is very popular in Japan.

Under the influence of this letter, I will try to speed up the revision of the texts on Ganodermě and Trametes to give readers at least this basic idea, I am now trying odkomunikovať you. If I do not work in time, it will soon be on the effects of these fungi read the latest book, Mushrooms and their healing effects of the living legends of tropical botany, prof. Paul Valíčka.


In the case of the fight against cancer should be used Reishi and Coriolus supplementation in the right quantities. This type of natural drugs is quite often adjusted to powder concentrate (Forte) which 1 gram of powder contains the extracted active ingredient corresponding to several grams of minced mushroom. As the vehicle concentrate powder is used mostly milled mature fruiting bodies of fungi species. Concentrate enables the use of larger doses and reliable absorption of active substances. At the forefront of research and processing of medicinal mushrooms are currently stands East Asia, especially in Taiwan , where he recently completed a project sequencing and annotation of the genome Reishi mushroom shine.

in conclusion

In conclusion, I forgive you note the problem that today the availability of harmless, yet effective natural medicines threatens most: Building the bureaucratic barriers that the EU through the WTO expand to the whole world.

Specifically Trametes versicolor (Trametes versicolor), according to new EU directives automatically fell into the category of "novel foods" (novel food), so its sale is prohibited unless someone neodhodlá that embarking on several years of bureaucratic process of obtaining special permits from EU institutions. It soon virtually impossible this fungus in the EU legally be sold in the food category . Sale of mushrooms in the category of drugs back in practice prevent high fixed charges and drug registration procedures for herbs totally inappropriate.

Institutionalization of natural resources, bans on specific herbs, blanket bans everything goes labeled as "novel food" (despite thousands of years of experience!), Bans the display of information about the medicinal power of medicinal plants etc. are presented under the guise of improving and zodborňování phytotherapy, but when reading these laws it is all too evident in their real goal: Limit the freedom of doctors and lay people to decide on the treatment and transfer it to the supranational authorities, acting at the request of pharmaceutical cartels. This process will have a very detrimental impact on the health level of Europeans and the European economy. About this current topic for more
