DXN GANODERMA FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (“FAQS”)
Growing ganoderma at DXN.
Is it true that Ganoderma is the savior of modern diseases and is a ‘Universal Medicine’ for all diseases?
Well, I think the jury is still out on this question. Neither DXN nor Ganotherapy USA make any claims as to whether ganoderma will CURE you of anything. Western medical research today is beginning to find out that consuming something that is naturally high in organic germanium, such as ganoderma, can cause impressive results when treating illness or disease. Herbal or Alternative medical research today clearly shows that ganoderma will help your body heal itself. There are many links on our Medical Research page to disease specific documents at the National Library of Medicine on research done with ganoderma. Read some of those, and read the documents on this website, and let the evidence speak for itself as to whether ganoderma is a “miracle cure”.
ONE CAUTION: Do not expect that ganoderma will replace what medicines your doctor has prescribed for you! You must continue to LISTEN TO YOUR DOCTOR while you are taking ganoderma! Eventually, your doctor may discover that there are some good things happening to your body (for instance, a reduction in your blood pressure, or a reduction in your cholesterol level) and they may take you off of your medication. This is all to the good – the less chemicals in your body, the better! But do not stop taking your prescribed medicines, and above all, DO NOT IGNORE your doctor’s advice!
What can DXN’s ganoderma do for me?
Right away after taking DXN’s RG/GL capsules, you may notice a couple of “ordinary” things – such as a welcome and pleasant increase in your energy. This is the first thing most people notice. What is happening is that the ganoderma is helping to oxygenate your blood. This will give you a nice peppy feeling without all the nervousness of caffeine or any kind of artificially produced “high”. This natural “feel good” feeling will persist throughout your whole time while you are taking ganoderma, because your brain needs oxygen. And what a plus – when your brain gets more oxygen it will remember things easier! No more “Where did I leave my keys?”! So being more aware will also be something you may notice. If you have calluses on your hands or feet or elbows or knees, you may notice that the dead skin is starting to fall off. This is your body at work trying to heal itself. Some people even notice a reduction or diminishment of any kind of celoid or scar tissue (such as a vaccination scar or acne scars). It’s different for everybody – depending on what your system needs.
The other thing ganoderma can do for you is help your body work the way it is supposed to work in sloughing off toxins and healing itself. What ganoderma does for you will be specific for YOUR body. Your body is your own best doctor – If you have a splinter in your finger, if you leave it there instead of remove it, eventually the body will force it out of your skin. When you have an illness, your immune system goes to work to kick out the reason you are feeling ill. DXN’s ganoderma products act to help your body work the way it is supposed to work. It helps your body kick out all the toxins that are making you feel bad, and it also boosts your immune system so that your body can heal itself. Ganoderma does nothing more than help your own body do its job. Read on…
What are the possible symptoms after consuming ganoderma?
In a nutshell: Most of what happens to your body when you take DXN’s RG/GL capsules will show up in how your body eliminates waste – you may perspire more, or go to the bathroom more often, or you may have a slight discharge from your sinuses or eyes. Do not panic – this is just your body sloughing off the poisons. If this reaction seems too severe, half your dosage but continue to take the RG/GL’s. You may feel a little dry – drink more water – WATER, don’t think soft drinks or any other liquid can substitute (you can continue drinking those, just drink more WATER)! Your body needs water to flush out the toxins. All of this is normal. Once the toxins are pretty much gone from your system, then your body can go to work on healing itself.
On a more detailed level, there is a concept in Chinese medicine: the symptoms will become worse before they become better, because the elimination of body toxic waste will usually take place before the body recovers from diseases.
During the early stages of consuming ganoderma, a change for the better may initially result in a feeling of weakness or fatigue. This is because the body is shifting vital energies to internal organs to begin a process called REGENERATION from the more exterior muscle and skin tissue.
As the new and improved diet is continued, new symptoms could happen. Some may experience dizziness, sore bones, itchy skin, increased bowel movements, hardening of feces, and/or pimple-like eruptions appearing on various parts of the body. For some people, diarrhea may occur. This is a process called “DETOXIFICATION” or a process of elimination of toxins and other wastes that accumulated in the body.
Patients who experience reactions described above usually recover faster than those who do not have any symptoms after consuming ganoderma.
The length of reaction differs from one individual to another: it may last for 2-5 days; a severe one may last for 7-30 days. These are the SIGNS OF RECOVERY.
If the reaction is serious, reduce the dosage, or see a doctor to relieve the symptoms, and then continue to consume until the reaction is totally eliminated.
Some may experience the reaction 3-10 days after consuming ganoderma. Some may experience reactions 2-3 months later. The reaction may not be limited to one occurrence only, unless the illness has been completely healed.
Although ganoderma may have many physiological reactions due to the cleansing effect, it will NOT produce any negative interactions when consumed with drugs prescribed by your doctor. Ganoderma is what modern medical science calls an “ADAPTOGEN” – meaning that it is non-toxic (no harmful side-effects), not limited to special organs or tissues, and has an overall normalizing effect. The adaptogen concept aims to cure by normalizing all body functions. It holds the notion that unless everything is put into its right track, there can be no complete cure.
What are the qualifications, or the background of DXN, the ganoderma manufacturer?
The DXN ganoderma Gano factory has been conferred the following Certificates:
GMP Certificate by the National Pharmaceutical Control Bureau from the Ministry of Health Malaysia;
ISO 9002 Certificate;
ISO 14001 Certificate;
Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) by Australian Government Department of Health and Aged Care.
– These certifications indicate the success in the managing of quality manufacturing system in producing exceptional products.
CULTIVATION & PRODUCTION TECHNIQUES –
There are at least three outstanding features in the cultivation & production techniques.
Firstly, in the cultivation of DXN Reishi Gano, high nutrition and 100% natural organic planting media such as rice chaff and coarse rice – NO chemical fertilizers or insecticides are used.
Secondly, a unique technique has been developed to achieve a high concentration rate (20 : 1) so that the superlative quality of products is ensured.
Last but not least, DXN’s specialized freeze dry technique conserves 100% of the active ingredients of DXN’s ganoderma.
What’s the recommended dosage for Reishi Gano and Ganocelium?
The recommended consumption quantity of ganoderma differs from one individual to another. However, it is best to start with a smaller dosage or solely the consumption of Ganocelium without Reishi Gano to give the body time to adapt to possible physiological/psychological changes introduced by the herbs.
We recommend 1 capsule of Reishi Gano (RG) and 1 capsule of Ganocelium (GL) once daily in the first week, and gradually increase the dosage to 3 capsules of Reishi Gano and Ganocelium twice daily for general maintenance of good health. Individuals with discomfort are advised to take 2 capsules of both Reishi Gano and Ganocelium twice daily and those who are suffering from terminal illnesses are recommended a much larger dosage. Typically, 3 to 6 grams daily is generally regarded efficacious in everything from bronchial asthma to insomnia, hepatitis, nervousness and neurasthenia. 9 grams a day is recommended for circumstances of heart diseases, hypertension or cancer.
Ganoderma is also classed as a dietary supplement, and therefore a high daily consumption dosage is harmless. It does not produce any side effects unlike most drugs made from chemicals. You can consume ganoderma even if you are on any medications given by the doctor.
By Dr. Mercola
Nearly 60 percent of Americans drink coffee, and for many the habit is a daily one. Coffee drinking has long been viewed as more of a vice or a crutch to get a quick energy boost to power through the day, but this view is now changing as the health benefits of coffee continue to be revealed.
This is good news for those of you who sip on a cup of joe in the morning, as it turns out this may be a quite healthy way to start your day. However, please remember that coffee is one of the most heavily pesticide sprayed crops in the world. If you drink it please be sure to get organic and ideally fair traded, This is less than 3% of all coffee.
Daily Coffee Boosts Colon Cancer Survival
Among people with advanced (stage III) colon cancer, drinking four or more cups of caffeinated coffee daily lowered the risk of cancer recurrence or death during the study by 52 percent compared to those who drank no coffee. Drinking two or three cups per day was also beneficial, lowering the risk of recurrence or death by 31 percent.
The researchers stressed that other caffeinated beverages, such as soda, did not have the same effect. No link was found between decaffeinated coffee and risk of colon cancer recurrence either.
Further, a causal link was not found. This means it could simply be that coffee drinkers tend to follow a healthier overall lifestyle that’s contributing to the lower risk. However, the antioxidants and other beneficial plant compounds in coffee have been linked to a lower chronic disease risk before.
In fact, coffee has been linked to a lower risk type 2 diabetes as well, a condition known to increase the risk of colon cancer. It’s likely that compounds in coffee may lower the risk of multiple chronic diseases via similar pathways. As reported by the New York Times:
“The researchers’ hypothesis is that the factors that increase risk for Type 2 diabetes, such as obesity, a sedentary lifestyle, and high insulin levels, also drive colon cancer, Dr. [Charles S.] Fuchs [director of the Gastrointestinal Cancer Center at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston] said.
And many studies have shown that coffee consumption is associated with a lower risk for Type 2 diabetes, a chronic illness that may increase the risk of colon cancer.
‘We believe that activating the energy pathways that contribute to heart disease and diabetes is also relevant for the proliferation of cancer cells,’ Dr. Fuchs said, while also stressing that more research was needed.
The analysis determined the lowered risk associated with coffee was… because of the caffeine. One hypothesis is that caffeine increases the body’s sensitivity to insulin, so it requires less of the hormone. That, in turn, may reduce inflammation, which is a risk factor for diabetes and cancer.”
What Else Does the Research Say About Coffee and Cancer?
While a number of individual studies have suggested coffee consumption might increase your cancer risk, when multiple studies are analyzed, such as is the case with meta-analyses, the association disappears, and, in fact, becomes protective.
For instance, one 2007 meta-analysis found an increase in consumption of two cups of coffee per day was associated with a 43 percent reduced risk of liver cancer3 – a finding that has been confirmed by more recent research.
Not to mention, coffee appears to have additional benefits for liver health, slowing down the progression of liver disease to cirrhosis, improving responses in people with hepatitis C, and lowering the risk of death in people with cirrhosis.
The potential benefit of coffee for liver health appears so strong that researchers have stated daily coffee consumption should be encouraged in people with chronic liver disease.
Another meta-analysis involving 59 studies revealed an increase in consumption of one cup of coffee per day was associated with a 3 percent reduced risk of cancers. According to the researchers:
“Coffee drinking was associated with a reduced risk of bladder, breast, buccal and pharyngeal, colorectal, endometrial, esophageal, hepatocellular, leukemic, pancreatic, and prostate cancers.”
There’s even research showing coffee consumption could lower your risk of skin cancer. Drinking four cups of caffeinated coffee daily might reduce your risk of melanoma, the most dangerous form of skin cancer.
According to researchers:
“Coffee constituents suppress UVB-induced skin carcinogenesis, induce cell apoptosis, protect against oxidative stress and DNA damage, reduce inflammation in epidermal cells, and inhibit changes in DNA methylation.”
Women who consumed more than three cups of coffee a day had a significantly lower risk of basal cell carcinoma (non-melanoma skin cancer) than those who consumed less than one cup per
Roasted Coffee Contains More Than 1,000 Compounds, Many of Which May Help Fight Cancer
Coffee has multiple potential anti-cancer pathways. As mentioned, caffeine is one of them, as its been shown to both stimulate and suppress tumors depending on the cancer and when it’s
Polyphenols in coffee, such as lignan phytoestrogens, flavonoids, and polyphenols are also known to have anti-cancer properties, as does caffeic acid, which inactivates several pathways involved in the development of tumors – including cell cycle regulation, inflammatory and stress response, and apoptosis.
Researchers noted in the journal BMC Cancer:
“There are two specific diterpenes in coffee, cafestol and kahweal, which produce biological effects compatible with anti-carcinogenic properties, including the induction of phase II enzymes involved in carcinogen detoxification, specific inhibition of the activity of phase I enzyme responsible for carcinogen activation, and stimulation of intracellular antioxidant defense mechanisms.
Coffee is also a major source of the chlorogenic acid that contributes to its antioxidant effect. Intake of chlorogenic acid has been shown to reduce glucose concentrations in rats and intake of quinides, degradation products of chlorogenic acid, increases insulin sensitivity.
Chronic hyperinsulinemia and insulin resistance are confirmed markers of high risk for some cancer sites.”
The Benefits of Coffee: From Your Heart to Your Brain
The benefits of coffee are becoming so well established that, for the first time, a government advisory committee included a mention of caffeine in its recommendations for the 2015 edition of Dietary Guidelines for Americans. The report said Americans could safely consume up to five cups of coffee a day, or approximately 400 milligrams (mg) of caffeine, with no detrimental
The recommendation was based on an evaluation of multiple meta-analyses and other studies evaluating the link between coffee and chronic diseases, including cancer, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, Parkinson’s, and Alzheimer’s. Here’s a sampling of what the research shows:
In a study of more than 25,000 people, those who drank a moderate amount of coffee – defined as three to five cups daily – were less likely to have calcium deposits in their coronary arteries than those who drank no coffee or more coffee
A large part of arterial plaque consists of calcium deposits (atherosclerosis), hence the term “hardening of the arteries.” Coronary artery calcium can be a significant predictor of future heart disease risk.
In addition, one study showed moderate coffee drinking reduces your chances of being hospitalized for heart rhythm problems. Another study found it may trigger a 30 percent increase in blood flow in your small blood vessels, which might take some strain off your
Another study, a meta-analysis that included data from 11 studies and nearly 480,000 people found drinking two to six cups of coffee a day was associated with a lower risk of
Multiple Sclerosis and Parkinson’s Disease
Drinking four to six cups of coffee a day is associated with a lower risk of multiple sclerosis, as is drinking a high amount of coffee over five to 10 years. According to researchers, “Caffeine has neuroprotective properties and seems to suppress the production of pro-inflammatory cytokines.” Higher coffee and caffeine intake are also associated with a lower risk of Parkinson’s
Caffeine promotes production of the neurotransmitters serotonin, dopamine, and noradrenaline, and triggers the release of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), which activates brain stem cells to convert into new neurons, thereby improving your brain health. Among people with mild cognitive impairment (MCI), those with higher blood levels of caffeine (due to coffee consumption) were less likely to progress to full-blown intake is associated with a reduced risk of dementia or delayed onset, particularly for those who already have MCI,”the researchers said.
Research published in the New England Journal of Medicine has even shown that coffee consumption is inversely associated with premature death. The more coffee drank, the lower the risk of death became, including deaths from heart disease, respiratory disease, stroke, injuries and accidents, diabetes.
