RED REISHI

RED REISHI is a very rare and precious Chinese Medicine (herb). Since Immemorial time, only the royalties had the privileges of consuming it

RED REISHI with its medical effiency was attested to the ancient Chinese medical text (presumed to be over 2,000 years old). The "Book", which is known in Japan as " Shinnoh Honosohkyo", is now recognized as being the original text book of Oriental medical science. There are 365 kinds of medicines which are classified and explained. Reishi was first categorized as a "Superior Medicine (herb)" in "Shinnoh Honsohkyo" and also in the "Chinese Outline of Herbs" written by Li Sze Tsun of Ming Dynasty. In both texts, Reishi has been ranked the Number One herb, ahead of Ginseng which is ranked Number Two among the 365 recognized herbs.

 

" Red Reishi - there are no side effects, it cures lumps on the lungs, benefits the breath, increases wisdom while nurturing the body, cures forgetfulness, and when taken for a long time keeps the body light and youthful, like a god." Translated from "Shinnoh Honsohkyo".

 

RED REISHI is referred to as a "Superior Medicine" because when compared to the ordinary medicine it has the following superior qualities:

1. Daily consumption is acceptable and no side effects.

2. Regular consumption of reishi will regulate body functions to its normal forms.

3. Its medicinal power is effective on all bodily organs' function.

CULTIVATION OF QUALITY RED REISHI

Germination of red reishi in a natural environment is not easily attained due to its hard shell surface. The surrounding environment such as temperature, humidity, sunlight and the quality of the wood logs plus carbon dioxide density in the air all play an important role in the cultivation process. If any of the above conditions are not met, reishi will not grow to maturity and its medicinal value will largely diminished. Wild grown reishi is prone to diseases and insects infestations. The mother fungi also plays a dramatic role in the quality of the reishi.

REISHI CULTIVATION METHOD

The process for cultivation of Red Reishi is by grafting the superior reishi fungi onto aged dried wood of Japanese oak which are placed in greenhouses under strict controlled enviromental conditions. It is then watched carefully by researchers and growers over its cultivation period. This method of cultivation is far more complex and time consuming than the other method, which is, in bottles of wood pulp.

JAPANESE MEDICAL PROOF OF REISHI'S MIRACULOUS POWER

Physcians around the world have paid high attention to "ADAPTOGEN", which is one of the healing properties that is possessed in the red reishi.

In Japan, reports from hospitals and medical research centres on the red reishi's medicinal values have been astonishing. The whole mysterious character of reishi is not yet known, but it is believed that the main medical function of red reishi is to aid blood circulation and increase the metabolic activities of cells inside the human body and also help the proper functioning of all internal organs. It can also strengthen poor health and increase the natural immunity of the body. It is most effective in the curing of diseases which arise from poor blood circulation . It also helps to attain long life and beauty.

RECOVERY SYMPTOMS

During the early stages of consuming the Red Reishi, one may have dizziness, sore bones, itchy skin, increased bowel movements, hardening of faeces, and/or pimple-like eruptions appearing on various parts of the body. For some people, diarrhea may occur. But it will subside in two to five days and thereafter stop. The period it takes differs from individuals. These are the normal signs of recovery and it indicate that the medicinal properties of the reishi are functioning well - the excretion of accumulated body poisons and vigorous activities of the body metabolism. Such disturbances differ from individuals, and will disappear if it is consumed on a regular basis.

Persons suffering from problems of the liver, kidney, stomach, intestine or pancreas, bronchitis, measles, constipation, rheumatism, arthritis, diabetes, headaches and other allergies will respond very easily with the above-mentioned "Recovery Symptoms".

HOW COME THERE IS NO MEDICINAL EFFECT AFTER THE INTAKE OF REISHI?

Maybe the quality level of reishi comsumed is low.

Reishi is a scarce "Superior Herb" with incredible medicinal value. Through years of research in Japan, it is proven that the tea-coloured reishi has great medicinal value, and the red-coloured has the highest medicinal value. Furthermore, it is proven that in order to cultivate top quality reishi plant, one must use a mother fungi with the most potent medicinal value together with method most similar to its natural growing environment. It is most regretable that this method is very costly and it takes approximately 2 years to complete, thus, making the end product expensive. For the consumers to buy top quality reishi products in the marketplace has been made complicated because a lot of reishi producers have produced low quality reishi only to meet the desire of the general public. The cultivation period time for these low quality reishi plants are approximately 3 - 4 months only.

WOULD THE WESTERN MEDICAL WORLD VALUE REISHI ?

Western medical practices based their diagnosis on examinations of organs and symptoms. Medications with known unwanted side-effects continue to be employed as long as they can relieve the pains of patients.

Traditional Chinese medical practices aim to cure by normalizing all bodily functions in a patient. It holds the notion that unless everything is put onto the right track, there can be no complete cure. Reishi normalizes the body functions with no side effects, it is used as a preventive medicine. This is why the Western medical practices have not yet value the reishi's medical efficacy.

In Japan,when we first introduced our Reishi product into the market, it caught the attention of Dr. Fukumi Morishige M.D.,Ph.D., who is working with Dr. Linus Pauling on researches activated by Linus Pauling Institute of Science and Medicine. Dr. Morishige have used our reishi extracts in his clinics on patients with terminal illnesses since 1986, and the recovery results are astounding. He states that, although, reishi has been treated as preventive medicine against sickness, large dosage might have higher recovery effects. He continues his research on the reishi's medical efficacy and firmly believes that in the near future, the West would also value the reishi's medicinal value.

EXACTLY WHAT IS THE RIGHT DOSAGE OF REISHI ONE MUST CONSUME?

The consumption amount of reishi differs from individuals. A pack ( 2 tablets) a day for a healthy person will enhance their immune system and helps blood circulation, increases and strengthens the vitality and less prone to diseases. Individual with discomforts should take 2 - 4 packs a day and those who are suffering from terminal sickness should take large dosage. Reishi is also a dietary supplement, a high consumption level is harmless. It does not produce any side effects unlike most chemical drugs. You can consume reishi even if you are on other medications.
