Ganoderma side effects or temporary reactions?


Will taking Ganoderma Lucidum cause any side effects? Do you feel more uncomfortable after taking this herb?

Some people may experience temporary reactions after taking this herb for a few days. This is more obvious for those with serious chronic illnesses. 

When these reactions arise, most people thought Ganoderma makes their condition worse. So they believed Ganoderma cannot help to improve their health problem and give up their hope on this herb.

And this is the most misunderstood aspect of this herb.

Actually, these reactions are not Ganoderma side effects. It is part of the healing process you must go through. Ganoderma temporary reactions happen when this herb begins showing its effectiveness in:

  • clearing your circulatory blockage
  • removing your body toxins
  • and improving your body constitution

In fact, Ganoderma is one of the safest herbs to consume for long term. As an adaptonegic herb, it helps to balance your body conditions without any side effects at all.


Examples of temporary reactions

High blood pressure may become a little higher at first, before slowly coming down. The same applies to high blood sugar (diabetes). For chronic stomach ache, you may feel your stomach getting more painful in the beginning. Other common reactions are:

Body pain - You may have internal injury due to accident around that painful area. Pain is also felt around body parts with blood circulation blockage.

Body itch - You may have accumulated too much toxins in your body. Or you may have problem of weak liver function. This often happens if you consume medication such as pain killer, steroids or sleeping pills for long term.

You may experience itchiness and red pimple-like dots on your skin. These are very normal reactions. Once Ganoderma removes most of your body toxins, your condition will automatically improve.

More acne - Same as above, this is a detoxification effect. Your body toxins are channeled out through your face instead.

Diarrhea -This is also a detoxification effect. This time, the channel is through the intestines. The diarrhea should reduce in a few days.

Swollen leg - This is a sign of weak kidney function. You may have kidney problem or diabetes that causes water retention (edema).

All these effects are only temporary. It is like a hump you must go through before you can achieve complete healing with this herb.


What to do about it?

If you cannot stand these reactions, reduce Ganoderma dosage to half. Upon feeling better, increase the dosage back again. At this stage, your patience and faith are very important.

Many people give up at this stage, blaming Ganoderma for making their condition worse. Some even get scolded for recommending it.

But those who understand this process and have faith in this ancient medicinal herb, health improvement is just around the corner.


So remember...

Don't worry if you experience any temporary Ganoderma reactions. Continue to take it until your condition improves. If you cannot bear it, simply reduce the dosage to half and increase it back when you feel better.

Usually the reaction lasts for a few days to a few weeks. If you are getting more uncomfortable even after a few months, consult a doctor quickly. Your health problem may be more serious than you think.


Why some says Ganoderma has side effects?

Actually, Ganoderma Lucidum herb itself has no side effects even for long term consumption. Side effects only happen if dishonest manufacturers mix steroids or other medicines into their Ganoderma supplement. You can easily detect this.

You will usually feel better in one or two days. But once you stop taking it, your health problem comes back immediately. After some time, your face swells and your body weight increases. These are the side effects of steroids.

The presence of heavy metal such as mercury or lead can also cause side effects for long term consumption. Poor cultivation method and polluted cultivation site often result in this contamination. Learn more about Ganoderma cultivation.
