For thousands of years Ganoderma has been considered by the Chinese to be
a high quality herbal medicine. The so-called ‘A-one Medicine’ is
the best medicine which does not have any side effects, even after
using it for a long time. It can improve one’s constitution,
increase the body’s healing ability to help maintain a healthy body,
and have a long life.
“The Outline Of Herbal Medicine” written by a very famous Chinese
pharmacologist Dr Li Shin-Chen, classifies Ganodermas into six
categories, by colour. They are Black Ganoderma, Purple Ganoderma,
Blue Ganoderma, White Ganoderma, Yellow Ganoderma and Red Ganoderma.
Wild Ganoderma is very rare and is difficult to
collect. Even if someone finds it by chance, its effects are always
lost because of aging. It becomes hard like leather. They may also be
toxic. Since they are haphazardly collected, quality control is
In 1970, a technician of Kyoto
University Foodstuff Scientific Research Institute. Mr. Yukio
Naci, used, ‘Spore Separation Cultivation Method’ to successfully
cultivate Ganoderma. This method was introduced in the Republic of
China in 1975. Since the climate, and soil conditions are ideal, this
technique has been widely adopted.
Magic Effects of Ganoderma:
Ganoderma has always been shrouded with a
mysterious curtain for more than a thousand years. People only know
‘‘Ganodermas can keep one young and give one a long life if taken
continuously”, but no one had ever scientifically investigated why it is so effective.
Under the attentive research done by both Chinese and foreign scholars
in recent years, and the cooperative analysis and clinical experiments
done by hospitals, colleges, and pharmaceutical manufacturers, its
extensive efficacy has finally been discovered. It is a hemocatheresis,
detoxicant, diuretic, liver protector, intestine regulator,
cardiotonic, blood pressure adjustor, a cold tonic, antitussive and
expectorant, a tranquilliser and anti-tumour drug.
components of Ganoderma:
Organic Germanium (Ge): Can
increase the oxygen absorbed by the blood up to 1.5 times: can promote
metabolism: prevent tissue degeneration. According to the research of Dr Kazuhiko Asai, Ganoderma contains
800 - 2000 p.p.m. of germanium. This is 4-6 times more than ginseng.
can improve the body’s immune system, eliminate viruses. Japanese
pharmaceutical companies have refined it to medical quality and it has
been approved by the Koseisho
Health Department in Japan for insurance medicine.
Its bitter taste. It is under constant study by the Japanese medical and
pharmaceutical fields. The efficacy is a result of the interrelation
of germanium and polysaccharides. Some plants may contain one or the
other, but Ganoderma
is much more effective. The combination of components is
different from other plants and all of the components must be
preserved to insure efficiency.
Principles of Ganoderma:
According to Dr
Shigeru Yuji’s clinical experiments, the reason Ganoderma is
effective is because of its basic functions:-
Lowers cholesterol in the blood and the amount of free fat.
Reduces blood sugar level; to restore pancreas functions.
Lowers blood lipids and stabilizes red cell membrane.
Due to Ganoderma containing Adenosine, it can lower platelet angulation,
and lyses thrombi and prevent thrombogenesis.
Improves the function of the cortex of the adrenal glands to maintain
Elevates the natural healing ability of the body, allows the body to
establish a strong immune system.
Prevents tissue cell degeneration.
Prevents senility, maintaining a youthful constitution
Lowers the side effects of antihypertensive drugs.
Prevents organ degeneration.
Prevents allergy caused by antigens, because it inhibits the histamine
releasing mast cell.
Prevents and treats cancer and inhibits cancer cell metastasis.
Normalizes to prevent tissue degeneration.
Prevents sudden death of cancer patients caused by embolism.
Inhibits thrombogenesis and lyses thrombi on the wall of surrounding
tissues and removes blockade of cancer medication, increases these

it really true that Ganoderma is the savoir of modem diseases and is a
‘Universal Medicine’ for all diseases?
By Yukio Naoi of Kyoto
University Foodstuff Scientific Institute
“‘Is Ganoderma really a universal medicine?’” Let’s not talk
about the diseases prevalent in history, but of modern diseases. In
order to find the answer we have investigated its functions over and
again for thirteen years. Satisfactory results have been obtained.
The first issue is whether Ganoderma can be
effective on all kinds of diseases. Our reply is ‘Yes’, because it
is able to maintain the health of the modern person. For an unhealthy
person, Ganoderma can affect the most feeble parts of his body. To a
patient, it can root out the source of the sickness and allow
Ganoderma can change an imbalanced body to a healthy one. There is no
difference among human races, ancient or modern people. Ganoderma has
an effect on all. The same people all over the world will obtain the
If the patient’s constitution conforms to Ganoderma, it is as if a
patent drug is achieving its highest effects. In fact, we have not
found any person who obtained negative effects or inefficient results.
Some outstanding results obtained recently are simply analysed below,
in order to evaluate the efficacy of Ganoderma.
Headache and shoulder pain caused by hypertension &
arteriosclerosis completely cured, and blood pressure also improved.
Reported by Mr Isao Tani of the Medical
Research Institute of Kinki University:-
The experimental subjects were predominantly hypertension patients.
Blood pressure showed significant improvement. One patient with a
reading of 180 / 96, had a reading of 126/94 after three months. Such
remarkable improvement is rarely seen without using antihypertensive.
Some female arteriosclerosis patients’ blood pressure dropped to
128/67 from 158/77, within three months. Their cholesterol level also
improved from 269 to 242.
Some patients have hypertension with headache
and shoulder pain. Their blood pressure dropped from 151/78 to 118/72
in one month, and headaches were eliminated.
Of a number of patients who had blood pressure and pain problems, both
Based on the above results, we may see that Ganoderma is useful to
hypertension patients. Using anti-hypertensive to lower blood pressure
can lower the systolic pressure, but not the diastolic pressure.
Ganoderma can lower both. This is its outstanding quality.
Why is it effective for both systolic pressure and diastolic pressure?
Dr Shigere Yuji of Kinki University gives
six explanations why Ganoderma is effective for cardio-vascular
Elevates blood pressure of hypotensive patients.
Prevents arteriosclerosis, lowers cholesterol levels.
Prevents thrombogenesis and dissolves thrombi.
Reduces the side effects of antihypertensive.
Used together with antihypertensive it may cause a hypotensive effect.
Cancer, sudden death and vascular obstruction diseases are threatening
Cross-section of blood vessels progress of arteriosclerosis
It is also effective in treating cerebral vascular obstruction,
cardiac infarction and cerebral apoplexy and angina pectoris.
Reported by Mr Uebara Kioshi of Kinki
Taking Ganoderma can reduce the serious symptoms of the above
diseases, without traditional treatment. Among these cases, was a
patient with a right cerebral arterial obstruction which occurred
twice. He received the best result after taking Ganoderma and
Urokinase, together. Complete mobility finally returned.
A patient suffering from cerebral vascular obstruction, who was
partially paralysed, could move freely after taking Ganoderma. His
free fat and B-lipo protein value returned to normal.
Taking Ganoderma can also improve the condition of cardiac patients.
This proves that taking Ganoderma together with other drugs, may
result in better results. By the way, since the above diseases are
difficult to cure, it is better to take Ganoderma regularly to prevent
their occurring in the first place.
4. It is effective in the
treatment of acute or chronic hepatitis, or liver dysfunction.
Reported by Dr Mitsui Hashimoto of
At the present time, hepatitis is still a disease which cannot be
treated with any specific method. If Ganoderma was effective, it would
be a meaningful medicine for its treatment.
Six capsules per day were prescribed to some patients with hepatitis.
Three months later all patient were recovering; their GOT and GPT
values decreased from 200-300 to 100.
In addition, one patient who used Ganoderma
together with some Chinese herbal medicines resulted in a decreased
GOT and GPT. There was one case of hepatitis combined with
hypertension. After taking Ganoderma, satisfactory results were
The above conditions can not be conclusive but
positive results of taking Ganoderma on hepatitis can be expected.
When liver function is declining the patient may get tired. Taking
Ganoderma can help ease fatigue.
The belief that ‘Liver disease is incurable’ should be abandoned.
The liver is the most important organ for
health. Liver function is quite complicated. Therefore, liver disease
is considered difficult to treat, and dietetic treatment is the only
method adopted by Western physicians.
However, Ganoderma is able to make the complicated organ function, and
have it return to normal. Based on our practical investigation,
Ganoderma can contribute a very positive effect. Dr
Shigeru Yuji reported that 10% of liver disorders could be
cured after taking for two months, 40% of the patients were relieved
of their symptoms, and their liver size was reduced. 50% of the
patients felt their symptoms diminish.
Pain from gastritis, gastric ulcer, duodenal ulcer, etc. can be
Reported by Dr Taro Tamura of Kinki
We used Ganoderma in gastritis, gastric ulcer,
and duodenal ulcer treatment. The most interesting case was of a man,
who had developed a gastric ulcer when he was young and which had
recently returned. Other medicines were ineffective, but one week
after beginning treatment with Ganoderma, his pain was significantly
reduced. When the dosage was reduced, he felt pain once a day or
almost no pain at all. He usually used an analgesic, but it seemed
useless. This treatment is also effective for gastritis and duodenal
ulcer patients who suffer from chest pain, loss of appetite, and
gastric ulcer patients who are fatigued and feeble. It can also help
gastric cancer post-operative pain. Some patients’ colour improved
and they put on weight little by little, after taking Ganoderma.
Ganoderma protects the patients who overeat, or eat only one kind of
food, or who are poisoned by food.
It has surprising results in treating dysentery,
constipation, gastric hyperacidity, and peptic ulcer. Its effects are
equal to that of medicines now in common use. Dr Shigeru Yuji also reports its high efficacy in treating
gastritis and ulcers.
The main function of the stomach and the
intestines is to absorb the required nutrients in food, then excrete
the wastes before fermentation. People usually eat too much, or eat an
imbalanced diet, or eat toxic foods. Then their digestive organs are
damaged. Ganoderma can not only protect the organs but can improve the
functioning of the digestive tract.
No need for the obese to go on starvation diets.
After World War II, people were poor and did not
have enough food to eat. It was needless to care about obesity, for
most people were very lean. Due to medical progress and improved
economic conditions, contagious diseases and poverty are much less of
a problem, while chronic diseases and different kinds of adult
diseases are increasing.
It was found in our investigation that thin people who take Ganoderma
can gain weight, and overweight people can lose weight. No matter how
old or young, whether male or female, whatever one’s constitution,
Ganoderma can allow a person to maintain the optimal body weight and
figure. Ganoderma will adjust the constitution and equalize biological
functions if one takes it steadily.
Since Ganoderma can eliminate obesity, overweight people do not need
to worry about their obese figures and the figure-conscious women do
not need to suffer the pain and ill effects of starvation diets and
weight loss drugs.
Taking Ganoderma together with chemotherapy may have significant
results for patients who have had surgery for breast cancer, colon
cancer or gastric cancer.
Reported by Dr Hiroshi Kawai of Kinki
The experimental subjects were patients who were treated improperly
after surgery, and patients who were suffering from the side effects
of chemotherapy. After a mastectomy, and chemotherapy, one patient’s
face became very dark. After using Ganoderma for two months, her colour
One patient’s limbs became paralysed and swollen after a mastectomy.
After using Ganoderma for one month, the numbness significantly
Some patients used Ganoderma together with some herbal medicines for
ten days after a colostomy. Night sweats disappeared and appetite
Some patients who have had a gastric cancer operation lose their
appetites. When six capsules of Ganoderma were taken each day, their
view of the above results, we can see that Ganoderma taken with
chemotherapy can be not only a valuable auxiliary treatment, but side
effects of chemotherapy can be reduced.
Prevents cancer metastasis, relieves pain & can improve the
chances for longevity.
belongs to the Polyporaceae of fungi family, and is believed to be an
effective cancer treatment in Japan, China, the U.S.A, Canada, the
U.S.S.R., and Scotland. Some medical specialists in different
countries are using the latest scientific instruments to do clinical
tests, e.g., Prof Ta-cheng, Medical
College of the National Taiwan University; Prof Cheng Hui-hua and Prof
Tung Ui-chi of Taipei
Medical College. The experimental results have proved that
Ganoderma is effective in cancer treatment. Information concerning
Ganoderma in treating cancer collected from Research reports is listed
The anti-cancer components of Ganoderma are polysaccharides and
Its efficacy is of additional efficacy and multiplicative
efficacy. Taken separately, no effects can be obtained.*
It can strengthen stamina, elevate the immune system, and
restrain cancer metastasis.
After undergoing surgery, it is helpful to patients with
cancers such as:- oesophageal cancer, gastric cancer, breast cancer,
intestinal cancer, and uterine cancer.
It can eliminate cancerous ascites, increase appetite, and
relieve the pain of late stage cancer.
It can be used together with other cancer treatments, such as
surgery, radiation, or combined with chemotherapy. It
has no side effects and is effective.
Based on the above clinical reports, we may see that it possesses
cancer preventing, suppressing, and curing qualities.
Most of us may have dental caries, myopia, or cancer tendencies when
we are young, or they may develop at any time. We should try our best
to prevent them from occurring. If we want to prevent tooth decay, we
should eat more calcium and avoid sweets. If we want to avoid myopia,
we should eat more vitamin A and avoid eye fatigue. If we want to
prevent cancer, we should eat

Ganoderma is considerably effective in the treatment of pain caused by
blood, blood vessel, or hematoma on the torso. As to shoulder, neck
and knee pain, in one case the pain originated from a deformed knee,
but the pain was relieved.
Treating pain which results from some structural factor, such as low
back pain caused by herniated intervertebratal disk is ineffective.
Ganoderma is also effective in treating gynaecological problems, such
as menstrual cramps, vertigo, menopause disturbances etc.
Yoshinori Imanishi of the Imanish
and Obstetrics Hospital.
The writer, who is an OB‑GYN specialist, prescribed Ganoderma to
women patients who had menstrual cramps, dizziness, irregular
menstruation, menopause disturbances, and difficulty in becoming
There were three cases which had positive results.
46 year old woman took Ganoderma for one month when her dizziness and
shoulder pain was relieved. A pregnant woman had tightness in her
chest and no appetite. After treatment with Ganoderma her condition
improved. One woman with a physiological disorder, was married for
many years, but could not conceive. After taking Ganoderma for three
months, she became pregnant.
There are two cases where positive results were obtained from
combining Ganoderma and herbal medicines. In the first case, serious
dizziness and shoulder pain was relieved in three months. In the
second case, abdominal pain was reduced. Ganoderma can relieve

a daughter becomes pregnant, her parents may wonder if it is safe to
give her Ganoderma. The expectant mother may become moody, especially
if it is the first pregnancy. During pregnancy, women are quite
sensitive to outer stimulation, both mentally and physically. Though
it is a natural phenomena, most women have difficulty adapting.
During this period, taking Ganoderma may act as a hemocatheresis, a
diuretic and as a detoxicant and will allow the foetus to develop
normally. It is said that Ganoderma may help the woman who is not easy
to get pregnant, or who has had habitual abortions before. Prof Kanata of Tohoku
University believes that taking Ganoderma can strengthen sexual
ability of both the male and the female intensifying the activity of
spermatozoa and regulating ovulation of the female.
Information from different sources reveals that Ganoderma may be
thought of as the ‘friend of the female’. It should be considered
a required medicine for women.
Ganoderma may effect a 100% cure for renal diseases.
disease is also one of the difficult diseases to cure. They include
acute or chronic nephritis, diabetic renal syndrome, nephrosis and
rheumatic fever. These may be due in part to a high cholesterol count
and a high blood sugar level. The kidneys are overloaded and blood
cannot reach renal capillaries. Nephrosis results, with oedema, urine
retention, fatigue and possibly serious uraemia.
Fumio Tsurudani of the Nagoya University Medical
Institute, Japan, did an experiment with patients suffering from
renal disease to check the effectiveness of Ganoderma. It was found
that it could not only lower proteinuria and cholesterolemia, but
could maintain proper renal function.
Based on our experimental results, renal

it. However, we
cured a number of cases with Ganoderma.
As we know, insufficient insulin secretion is the cause of diabetes,
and this results in some serious complications. Currently, Western
physicians use insulin injections as the only treatment. Though
insulin is able to lower blood sugar level, the symptoms recur very
soon. Furthermore, it is just like a cortisone hormone injection, with
many side effects. Insulin is unable to recover pancreas function, and
it speeds up the aging of the organ.

insulin. Accordingly, after taking Ganoderma, not only can

The occurrence of hereditary diseases can be prevented.
kinds of hereditary diseases have a high occurrence rate. If you are
healthy at this moment, you want to maintain this condition all your
life. Ganoderma can help you to reach this goal. Ganoderma’s
outstanding feature is that “it can adequately reflect slight
symptoms of diseases, keeping the human body in harmonious
condition”. This expression is the conclusion obtained from
experiments on thousands of people.
Ganoderma is a kind of medicinal food with over two thousand years of
human experience. After long term experiments, its pharmacological
nature has been further clarified, and it is widely used to maintain
the health of human beings. Its position in the medical field has been
Time passes too quickly. Won’t you regret it if you leave this world
without taking it?
Ganoderma is also effective in the treatment of difficult and
mysterious diseases such as:
No cause can be found
Event if the cause can be found, it
is untreatable with drugs. For example, blood pressure disorders are
caused by many factors, but it is too complicated to understand the
source and eliminate it. Even though antihypertensive drugs can
relieve the symptoms, the source cannot be eliminated.
For diseases which cannot be treated adequately with medicine, cannot
be diagnosed, or cannot be cured by Western drugs, Ganoderma can be
considered a precious panacea. Only Ganoderma can treat these diseases
successfully, eliminating the root cause of various puzzling diseases

medical term ‘Adaptogen’ has been coined to indicate the specific
effects of Ganoderma.
After long term research and experiments done by large Japanese
hospitals and research institutes, Ganoderma’s positive effects have been confirmed in every respect,
especially its hemocatheresis effect i.e. improves blood circulation
and cell quality. It allows the internal organs to function properly,
improves a weak constitution, and enhances the immune system. It has
an evident efficacy in treating diseases caused by poor circulation.
It is helpful in maintaining health and for a healthy appearance. The
Japanese medical field is surprised and has acknowledged its positive
effects on the following diseases:

It may sound strange that Ganoderma has an inversive effect i.e. it can both raise and lower blood pressure. Actually, because Ganoderma
can harmonize body functions, increasing the natural healing ability
of the body, it can strengthen the immune system, especially for the
With Ganoderma, some people may experience reactions after beginning
treatment. Some may have dizziness, weakness, or itching, or repeated
defecation and urination. These are normal phenomena, and indicate
that positive effects are beginning by dissolving the stored toxicants
and discharging them. Patients with diabetes may lose a large amount
of sugar, patients with rheumatism may have temporary intense pain.

“The opposition effect reaction”: (a
concept in Chinese medicine: the
symptoms will become worse before they become better, because the
causes of the diseases are being eliminated.) After taking Ganoderma
for three days, slight opposition effect reaction may result. It is
not a side effect. Please continue to use. It
is just a result of its efficacy, and the reaction will be different for
each individual. Not everyone will experience this reaction,
as it depends on the amount of toxins in the body that are being
eliminated. In general, one who has a hypersensitive constitution or
who takes large amounts of chemical drugs, will easily have such a
reaction. Sometimes, urticaria may appear, on the face or the body, or
even in the mouth. Also, one may have oedema, diarrhoea, stomach ache,
fever tinnitus, blood pressure variation and increased excretion. These
are not side effects. Do not worry. Continue use. The symptoms
will lessen or disappear very soon.
Some phenomena resulting from herbal medicine or
alimentary therapeutics are considered as side effects of the drug.
Actually, when these symptoms occur, the disease will be cured
gradually. Someone even emphasised, “No opposition effect reaction,

When an acidic constitution changes to an alkaline one, the toxic
substances within the body are being discharged. At this moment,
different reactions will appear, generally within 3-10 days. Symptoms

Ganoderma is suitable for use as a health food is confirmed by these
of Ganoderma's (in China called LINGZHI) and the method for
thousands of years ago, Ganoderma (a member of the family of fungi)
has been considered by Chinese people as a kind of wonder drug, which
promotes longevity. Details and its different names are in the
historical Chinese Medical books, such as “Shen-Nung Herbal Medicine
Book” or “The Outline of Herbal Medicine”.
The reasons Ganoderma's have not been popularly used in the Medical
are helpful to maintain health and to improve health. However up to
the present time, they had not been popularly used by the Chinese and
Chinese doctors. The reasons are listed below:
They are difficult to collect. Ganoderma's are usually found by chance.
When they are found, they could be destroyed by insects, or their
healing quality have been lost due to aging.
There are too many similar kinds. The effective kind could not be found.
In the past 30 years, we have collected more than thirty kinds of Ganoderma's
The Ganoderma's can’t be collected in time and so lose their efficacy.
When Ganoderma's are found, their efficacy is low, due to aging. Young
Ganoderma's taste bitter and sweet but the taste will change to be
very light when they harden like leather. Only young and growing Ganoderma's
There is no definite prescription. The technique and prescription adopted
by Chinese medicinal doctors usually follow the information given by
books such as Shang-Han-Lun and Chin-Kuei-Yao-Luch. However, neither
books give adequate prescriptions for Ganoderma's. Because wild Ganoderma's
are difficult to collect, and because there are so many kinds, we
began trouble shooting by cultivating many different species. In 1973
we introduced some similar species and went to the mountains all over
the country to collect the wild variety for comparison. Running the
risk of poisoning we personally tasted each kind. After six years, we
have successfully cultivated the Ganoderma's.
Main components and functions.
well as the components contained in the common mushroom, it has two
other important components:
Germanium (Ge) No. 32.
According to a research report by a Japanese doctor Dr
Kazuhiko Asai, Ganoderma contains 800‑2000 p.p. m of
germanium. Germanium can promote blood circulation, can increase the
oxygen absorbing capability of the body, can keep sufficient oxygen in
the blood, can improve metabolism, and prevent functional
degeneration. Based on an analysis by the doctor, germanium is the
major component of Ganoderma. The germanium contained in Ganoderma is 4‑6 times that of ginseng.
in varying quantities in the common mushroom, Japanese pharmacists and
medicine manufacturers have extracted the polysaccharides from
‘Yun-Jong’ which belongs to the same family as Ganoderma, and
produced a medicine called P.S.K. This medicine has been used in
clinical practice for cancer immuno-therapy, and was proved
effective, and approved
by the Koseisho Health Dept., for insurance medicine. It is
prescribed to cancer patients for prevention, malignancies, and
metastasis. The polysaccharides can increase antibody count which
strengthens immunity. When the fact that Ganoderma contains great
amounts of such components was first published in medical reports, the
medical field paid much attention to it. Since artificial cultivation
has succeeded, there is no need to worry about the supply. The
Japanese medical and pharmaceutical fields are all researching and
manufacturing, and have put Ganoderma's on the market as a health
The Efficacy of Ganoderma and Proof:
thousands of years Ganoderma has been considered to be the
‘Longevity Drug’. Such a wife's tale has been gradually
acknowledged as fact by users. If one takes it continuously, all
illness will disappear. Unless it is taken continuously, there is no
way to experience its marvel. In recent years, some overseas
Chinese and Japanese medical colleges and drug manufacturers have
studied its functions and used it in clinical practice. The following
efficacies have been found: Hemocatheretic and diuretic, detoxicant,
protects the liver, regulates the intestines, cardiotonic, adjusts the
blood pressure, cold resistant, anti‑bacterial, antitussive and
expectorant, tranquilliser and analgesic, among others. This means
that Ganoderma contains many different components. These components do
not function alone, but function interactively.
to a research report of the Kinki
University in Japan, its main function is to regulate the blood,
eliminate erythema congestivum, and make circulation improve to all
parts of the body. It also strengthens liver function, detoxifies,
promotes metabolism, increases vigour, increases the immunity and
recovers physical agility. If taken steadily, all illness can

are many experimental and research reports concerning the efficacy of
Ganoderma for treating illness. We cannot list all of them here. According to results obtained from
thousands of customers who have taken Ganoderma, it proves that all
information from foreign countries is quite true. Ganoderma
can not only prevent cancer malignancy and metastasis but it can
prevent cancer from recurring. It also relieves the pain of late stage

Effects of Ganoderma:
is a natural product. To take it, we must pay attention to its quality
and choose the right species. After taking it, we may feel:
Vigorous and energetic
Sleeping hours will be shortened, but feel energetic after awakening
Wastes are discharged smoothly and regularly.
a few people, who have special constitutions, taking Ganoderma may
result in dizziness or blood congestion in the face, as if alcohol had
been drunk. This is due to increased blood circulation. Symptoms will
disappear in half an hour. If someone has blood stool, the bleeding
will increase after taking, or pain will become more intense, and
sometimes eczema will appear. Do not worry, all phenomenon will
disappear in a period of time.
Outlook and Expectations:
is a precious medicine discovered by Chinese people about two thousand
years ago. Its efficacy is very broad. Though it has not been approved
by our government as a medicine, it has been widely adopted by the
Japanese. Not only are their specialists studying it aggressively, but
all the huge pharmaceutical companies are manufacturing it, to meet
peoples’ needs. Japanese take it as a daily health food. If its
qualities are false, then it would have disappeared from the market
already. As a matter of fact, Ganoderma has been very popular for more
than ten years and its popularity is booming now. At the very
beginning, it was sold at some department stores and art shops. Now,
all the drug stores are selling it and the supply is unable to keep up
are not a medicine or pharmaceutical agency but a fungi researcher. We
would not describe without scruples, but we are disturbed by what we
see i.e., so many kinds of diseases which can be treated with either Chinese or Western medical
techniques. In such a situation, we feel we must introduce, by any
means, Ganoderma and hope that it can be used
as an auxiliary medicine.

The Magic Water Source at L.L.L.
is a small village named L.L.L. at the boundary between France and
Spain in the Pyrenees Mountains. There is a water source there called
‘Magic Spring Water’.
to four million handicapped persons, or patients with incurable
diseases have come there from different parts of the world, to drink
the spring water, or to carry some back home. Newsweek Magazine,
published August 9, 1971, reported the following story: A three year
old girl suffered from kidney cancer. Although a kidney was removed,
the cancer had already spread throughout her body. She had become very
thin, weak, and had completely lost her hair from the chemotherapy.
She was very pale. Doctors thought that no medicine could save her
life. Her parents then took to L.L.L. to drink the spring water,
however, her condition did not improve. Her parents were deeply
disappointed. Three days after her return to England, the girl sat up
in the bed and ate some oranges. A few days later, her symptoms
disappeared, and her health was recovered. A photo of the lovely girl
was on the cover of the magazine.
this case was discussed widely by the medical field in Scotland. Since
then, there have been many publications and photographs about ‘The
Magic Water’ at L.L. L.
Japanese doctor of engineering, Dr. Kazuhiko Asia, analysed the
‘L.L.L. Magic Spring Water’, using the ‘Atomic Absorptive
Spectrum Method’, and found that the water contains organic
germanium. Based on this knowledge, further research was done on some
Chinese herbal medicines. It was found that Busy Sophora (Sophorae
Subprostratae rade), Comphrey (Symphyti herba), and Ganoderma's,
a great amount of organic germanium.
Why does the water, which contains germanium, perform such miracles?
compound dissolved in water, is different from other medicines. It is
a recent discovery which has changed people’s concepts of medicine.
Based on modern physics theories, the medical field has recently
developed quantum biochemistry. The human body is composed of
electrical micro‑organisms. They have electrical potential.
Brain wave scans are used to diagnose different diseases of the brain.
We try to discover if the brain’s electric potential is different
from a normal one. In the same manner, the stomach, liver, heart,
kidney, etc., all have a specific electrical potential of their own.
Whenever an organ becomes dysfunctional, the potential will be
abnormal. The basic unit of this electrical potential is the electron,
and in the human body, hydrogen ions are the influential electrons.
changes abnormal potential to normal potential. Since the element
germanium is a neutral semi ‑ conductor, which is a peculiarly,
active element in electronic mechanisms, its electrons seize away
other substances easily. Take cancer cells as an example. When cancer
cells develop very quickly, the electric potential on the cell
membrane is raised. At this moment, if germanium elements are in
surroundings, they will seize the electrons of the cancer cells,
lowering the cancer potential, inhibiting malignancy and metastasis.
if this element is to used in biochemistry, such as the absorption
system, metabolism or secretion, it has to be changed to an organic
element, with a water soluble nature.
In 1970, after 20 years research, a Japanese doctor, Dr Asai, successfully
produced water soluble organic germanium, and obtained the
international patent rights.
Acting on oxygen centered molecular medicine, organic germanium can
promote dehydrogenation and increase oxygen within the body.
order to maintain life, we eat food for energy. The metabolic process
burns food to generate energy as required by the body. The end
products of this process are carbon dioxide and hydrogen. Carbon
dioxide is exhaled and hydrogen is combined with the inhaled oxygen,
to make water, which is discharged from the body. For disposing of
these wastes, a large quantity of oxygen is needed.
organic germanium compound binds easily to hydrogen, it has a
dehydrogenating function, acting as oxygen bonded to hydrogen and
discharged. This leaves the oxygen in the body to be used more
productively. In fact, organic germanium can be completely discharged
within 20‑30 hours, in the form of hydroxyl‑germanium.
Even trace amounts are eliminated, so it is not toxic to the body.
(Based on animal experiments.) Examination after consumption of
organic germanium showed that the amount of oxygen in the body was

an example for further explanation, white rats were exposed to
radiation until red and white blood cells were reduced by 50%. They
were then injected with an organic germanium solution. Two weeks
later, the number of red and white cells was completely recovered.
Moreover, although the bone marrow, which makes blood, was destroyed
by radiation, it also recovered its function. (Japanese Radiation
Medical Association Vol. 18 No. 11).
It is important to maintain the correct pH balance in the body. Acid

knows that oxygen is the basic substance for maintaining life. It is
quite clear that a shortage of oxygen is detrimental to the human
body. Cells of the body are closely related to oxygen. If oxygen is
insufficient, cells will degenerate. And if this occurs, it is easy to

of all, food. A part of food changes to acidic substances through
decomposition after consumption. If one eats certain foods only, his
constitution tends to be acid, due to acid and alkalai imbalance. It
is easy to become ill. This has been acknowledged by the medical
the blood is acid, it contains too many positive hydrogen ions.
Hydrogen ions and oxygen combine to make water. This is why there may
be an oxygen shortage within the body. Accordingly, we must avoid an
one’s mental state may cause an oxygen shortage. Whenever the body
becomes nervous the mental state is unstable, and hormone secretion
loses its equilibrium, the blood become acidy, leading to an oxygen
shortage and a sick body.
Clinical experiments with organic germanium by Dr. Chirotaka Tanaka.
germanium is effective in the treatment of the following diseases:
encephalorrhagia (cerebral haemorrhage cerebral thrombosis
carbon monoxide poisoning
other acute drug poisoning
heart disease (angina pectoris)
analgesia for cancer patients
complications of encephalorrhagia
on his clinical experiments, it was proved that organic
germanium passes through the human body without doing any harm and has
no residual accumulation phenomena.
Regenerates old, weakening cells and recovers their vigour. This fact can
be inferred from examining the case necrotic big toe caused by
Raynaud’s Syndrome. Within two days, blood and pink colour returned.
Rejuvenates the body organs.
Eliminates carbon monoxide poisoning and acute drug poisoning quickly.
Treats melancholia, senile psychosis, epilepsy, etc. There
are four cases documented where the patients were almost

Treats cerebral apoplexy and paralysis, poor circulation in the limbs.
Treats heart disease, especially angina pectoris.
Taking organic germanium will give one a cheerful mood, tiredness will be
gone, the body will be energetic, deep sleep will occur, face colour
will improve, coldness in the limbs will disappear, nervousness will
Relieves pain caused by prostatis.
People with a good general health who take germanium may
increase their mental capacity, energy, prevent cancer, and increase
Organic germanium does not have any side-effects.
After germanium is completely absorbed and metabolised, it is
completely discharged from the body. This length of time for complete
discharge depends on one’s personal constitution, and usually takes
20‑30 hours. There are no side effects.
Regarding its toxicity, according to experimental results at Kita Sato University,
mice’ Lethal Dosage value was 50, when they were given orally 10
grams or more. This proves that germanium is harmless.
Variations in application. Though it is different from one
person to another, in general, a few days, after taking germanium,
time and quantity of wastes discharged in increased. The colour of the
wastes will change, too. There is no need to worry. It is a reflection
of germanium’s efficacy. People whose body contains denatured
protein, after taking organic germanium for a few days, urticaria may
appear. It is the opposition effect during denatured protein being
destroyed. The opposition effect: a concept in Chinese medicine: the
symptoms will become worse before they become better. Please
continue to take. All symptoms will disappear in 5‑7
Dosage: To maintain health take 0. 10.3 grams per day. As a
treatment, 0.5‑0‑2.0 grams per day. Drink dissolved in
Germanium and public injury from food.
about public injury from food is increasing daily. Foods from polluted
areas are all considered harmful. Cadmium and mercury poisoning are
due to these heavy metals getting into and accumulating in the inner
organs. In order to discharge these heavy metals out of the body,
treatment is called for. It seems very simple, but effective medicines
germanium is a kind of sesqui-oxide. The oxygen atoms in its
surroundings become negative charge and form a network, to compose
together with positive charge of organic germanium, as given below:
composed in such a form will be eliminated from the body in 20 hours.
The heavy metals will be‑ carried out at the same time. This
point has been proved to be true by pathologists conducting long term
It is also effective for P.C.B. poisoning (Polychlorobenzene)
chloric and benzenyl groups combine to form organic chloride, they
will be toxic. If dissociate chloric and benzenyl become inorganic
compounds - the toxigenicity will be lost and be discharged. There are
many methods to separate chloric and benzenyl, using current molecular
chemistry techniques - for instance, use radiation, or radiation of
specific rays. Since organic germanium compounds also have special
effects in electronic chemistry, during chemical experimental
processing, chloric dissociating phenomena may be found. On another
side, organic germanium may get into the intestinal blood vessels, to
combine with blood cells to form a circulation system. This fact has
been proven by pathological theory. Accordingly, it is specially
effective in the treatment of liver, lung, and cerebral cell disease,
for those organs are rich in blood.
heavy metals and P.C.B.s in the body, will cause disease at the place
where the blood quantity is large. (P.C.B.s accumulate in subcutaneous
fat, and are discharged with sweat). Organic germanium can get rid of
heavy metals and decompose P.C.B.’s until it is poison less. In
other words, it may flow through the blood stream to eliminate harmful
substances from the body.
