Is it true Ganoderma herb cures hundreds of diseases?


Have you heard Ganoderma Lucidum herb can cure hundreds of diseases? Well, you can actually find books with this title which document all researches done to prove Ganoderma healing benefits on various health problems.

So how true is this saying? Is Ganoderma herb really effective? Or is it another hyped miracle cure herb?

Dr Lee, the founder for Longheh Lingzhi, is an expert in using Ganoderma herb to improve various health problems. However, he never said Ganoderma cures hundreds of diseases.

Curing a disease is not as easy as it sounds. Each sickness is unique in its own way. One type of illness can be caused by many different factors. And some disease is caused by a combination of various factors.

Herbal supplement that works for you may not work for others. Therefore, I hate to hear sales pitch from a distributor who says their single cure-all product can heal almost every disease on Earth. And they say it confidently too.


What Ganoderma does?

Basically, Ganoderma does 3 important things:

  • Enhance your immune system
  • Improve blood circulation
  • Detoxify your body

Low immunity, poor blood circulation and toxins accumulation are three main causes for many health problems.

Therefore, Ganoderma Lucidum herb acts as a base herb to support conventional treatment and other herbal supplements to improve your health. In certain cases, taking Ganoderma herb alone gives significant improvement.

Dr Lee often prescribes Ganoderma herb for most patient. But he also prescribes other supplements and even raw Chinese herbs if needed.

Of course, you must also take care of your diet, emotional health and lifestyle to really improve your health.


Ganoderma herb limitation

Please be aware that Ganoderma has its limitations too. Certain health condition cannot be improved with this herb.

For example, I had fungal infection on my right foot 3 years ago. It caused skin peeling of my bottom foot. Even with Ganoderma herb, the fungal infection persisted for more than 2 years.

I didn't consult Dr Lee previously since I thought it was not a big deal. But finally I consulted him and he immediately told me to apply Lamisil cream, which is specially formulated for fungal infection. Well, my foot indeed healed after 2 months applying Lamisil cream.

Therefore, Ganoderma is not a cure all herb. In fact, nothing is. We should say Ganoderma herb supports the recovery of hundreds of diseases.
