WAYS FOR CANCER PATIENTS TO BOOST IMMUNITY DURING THE EPIDEMIC
Many people do not know that many cancer patients are killed by a weakened immune system rather than the cancer itself.
Decreased immunity can lead to various complications, which can seriously reduce the quality of life. This is the reason why most treatments are unsuccessful.
In the past two years, the novel coronavirus has become a new enemy of cancer patients on the road to anti-cancer!
Cancer patients need to be more alert to the infection of the novel coronavirus.
Cancer patients tend to have lower immunity than other populations. Common cancer treatment methods such as chemotherapy, radiotherapy or surgery will cause great damage to the immune function, so the resistance of cancer patients to viral infection will be greatly reduced.
On February 14, 2020, The Lancet Oncology published a nationwide study of cancer patients with COVID-19 from China.
The data show that compared with non-cancer patients, cancer patients are at higher risk of severe infection with novel coronavirus pneumonia and are more likely to worsen. If a cancer patient is infected with the novel coronavirus, early identification and early diagnosis are more difficult due to the low response capacity of the body.
Therefore, cancer patients need to pay more attention to protection during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Ganoderma lucidum helps to regulate the immune system of cancer patients.
The World Health Organization pointed out that one-third of cancer cases can be prevented, and another third can be cured if detected early and treated properly; the last one-third can be treated with existing medical treatments including traditional Chinese medicine that can prolong life and relieve suffering.
Today, the academic world is gradually treating cancer as a chronic disease and attaching importance to the influence of systemic factors on the incidence of cancer. “Coexistence with cancer” has become the living state of many cancer patients, which is in line with the TCM concept of “When there is sufficient healthy qi inside, pathogenic factors have no way to invade the body”.
So how do cancer patients survive with cancer? Some scientifically proven methods such as boosting immunity, eating a balanced diet and maintaining an optimistic attitude can be used together to fight cancer.
An optimistic attitude
Relaxing is the first step. Only when the patient relieves his emotions can the next treatment be more effective.
2. Balanced diet
The diet should contain seven nutrients: protein, fat, carbohydrates, vitamins, water, minerals and dietary fiber. Cancer patients should also pay attention to healthier cooking methods and stricter dietary restrictions.
3. Moderate exercise
Moderate exercise is good for the immune system. It can help prevent chronic inflammation and aid sleep and stress reduction.
Rational drug use and regular check-ups
Scientific pain relief can start with the integration of traditional Chinese and Western medicine. Current research has shown that traditional Chinese medicine including Ganoderma lucidum has a positive effect on pain relief for cancer patients.
How does Ganoderma lucidum regulate the immunity of cancer patients?
Lin Zhibin, a professor at Peking University known as “Father of Ganoderma Lucidum”, mentioned in the book “Lingzhi From Mystery to Science” that Ganoderma lucidum has the effect of enhancing treatment efficiency and reducing toxicity.
When Ganoderma lucidum preparation is combined with radiotherapy and chemotherapy, it has a good adjuvant treatment effect on some cancers such as esophageal cancer, gastric cancer, colorectal cancer and lung cancer.
Its curative effect is characterized by: alleviating adverse reactions such as leukopenia, thrombocytopenia, loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, and liver function damage caused by radiotherapy and chemotherapy; improving the immune function of cancer patients; improving the quality of life of cancer patients and prolonging the survival period of cancer patients.

“Ganoderma lucidum cannot treat cancer, but Ganoderma lucidum plays an adjuvant role in the treatment of cancer.” In November 2021, Professor Lin Zhibin sat in the live broadcast room of “Sharing the Views of the Famous Doctors” and explained to the audience, “Ganoderma lucidum polysaccharides are effective in increasing anti-cancer immune responses. Ganoderma lucidum can enhance the production of dendritic cells and T lymphocytes. In general, Ganoderma lucidum achieves anti-tumor effects through immune mechanisms.”
By maintaining an optimistic attitude, actively adopting methods that suit you, taking Ganoderma lucidum regularly, improving immunity in many ways and working hard to control and reduce the damage of tumors to the body, cancer patients can also achieve a good quality of life!
