CAN GANODERMA LUCIDUM CURE “ALL DISEASES”?
As a traditional Chinese medicine, Ganoderma lucidum, with its magical charm and legends of “curing all kinds of diseases”, “resurrecting the dead” and “promoting health and longevity”, has inspired generations of doctors and scholars to rush to explore. “Curing all diseases with Ganoderma lucidum” is a fuzzy concept in a broad sense that the ancients produced from the real experience of conquering diseases.
The emergence of this concept is likely to be related to the following factors:
1. It is related to the fact that Ganoderma lucidum promotes appetite. No matter what kind of disease a person has, he will lose appetite more or less. Ganoderma lucidum is very effective for promoting appetite and strengthening the spleen. After taking Ganoderma lucidum, the patient usually resumes appetite and supplement the missing nutrients in time, which enhances physical fitness. Many diseases can be gradually relieved or eliminated.
2. It is related to the fact that Ganoderma lucidum can help improve sleep. No matter what kind of disease a person has, he usually can’t fall asleep well. On the one hand, he can’t fall asleep because of his physical discomfort; on the other hand, he can’t sleep because of a lot of thinking. For example, a patient has some secrets, but he has been hesitating whether to tell his family or others the truth. As a result, he suffers from poor sleep at night and feels dizzy and listless during the day. Ganoderma lucidum is very effective in soothing the nerves and helping sleep. It can shorten the period of falling asleep, deepen the depth of sleep, eliminate or alleviate various discomforts caused by poor sleep.
3. It is related to the ability of Ganoderma lucidum to promote smooth excretion. Many diseases can cause poor excretion in the body. When the accumulated dirt cannot be excreted from the body in time, the toxins will circulate in the body, making the disease unhealed for a long time. Ganoderma lucidum can enhance gastrointestinal motility. After taking Ganoderma lucidum, the patient can smoothly discharge the toxins from his body, thereby alleviating or eliminating symptoms.
4. It is related to the sparse population and less pollution in ancient China. Pesticides, chemical fertilizers, waste water, waste gas, waste residues and smoke and dust are now increasingly polluting the environment. Human health is seriously threatened. Many diseases are becoming more and more difficult to treat. In contrast, there were fewer types of diseases in ancient times. People found in practice that Ganoderma lucidum has more obvious treatment effects than other Chinese herbal medicines.
Ganoderma lucidum can alleviate the above-mentioned symptoms such as loss of appetite, sleeplessness, poor excretion and general discomfort, which results in the concept of “curing all diseases with Ganoderma”. Modern medical research and testing have confirmed that Ganoderma lucidum is rich in more than 100 precious active ingredients. Due to the joint action of these ingredients, Ganoderma lucidum can enhance physique, comprehensively regulate the functions of various organs of the human body, restore vitality, improve disease resistance and eliminate pathogens.
From this point of view, the ancient notion of “curing all diseases with Ganoderma lucidum” means that Ganoderma lucidum has a wide range of treatments, not that it can cure all diseases. After all, Ganoderma lucidum is not a panacea, and we are all unique individuals.
