The use of herbs and other natural remedies in Chinese medicine has been around for centuries. It only has been in the past few decades that Western medicine has welcomed the utilization of alternative medicine in preventing and some even in curing diseases. One of these natural remedies is the reishi mushrooms also known as either Lingzhi or Ganoderma lingzhi. It is a polypore fungus that has a kidney-shaped cap and grows at the base of deciduous trees.
But why is natural medicine like using reishi mushrooms, not in mainstream medicine? By design, medical education is set up around the application of pharmaceuticals, which are funded by the pharmaceutical industry. Many of these medical students are taught against nutrition from day one. However, over the last decade and a half, more people are joining natural conferences, and patients are demanding to use natural solutions.
You might be wondering what benefit a mushroom can do for you. Reishi or Ganoderma is known as the “mushroom of immortality,” and it is used to boost the immune system, reduce stress, and improve sleep. Reishi powder can be consumed either in coffee or hot tea.
Stress is the enemy of the immune system, body composition, and detoxification. And if you are always tired and stressed, doing a stress reset could be beneficial not only for your mind but also for your body. Try taking the following for 7-10 days and see how your body feels afterward. Take Melatonin (1-2mg), L-theanine (100-200mg), and Ganoderma (500mg) every waking hour. This cocktail will help you stay calm and feel refreshed and rejuvenated.
