Cordyceps Reduces Tumor Size in Cancer Patients
For thousands of years, Cordyceps has been highly valued in China as a tonic food and herbal medicine. Until recently, it was only available in nature as it grows in the body of a caterpillar. Thus, the fungus was rare, very expensive, and subject to contamination. Today, a potent strain of Cordyceps, CS-4, is grown in a liquid broth medium under sterile conditions, making it safe, affordable, and available for use as nutritional therapy for many conditions.
As with the other medicinal mushrooms, the anti-cancer effects of
Cordyceps appear to come from its polysaccharides, as well as its sterols,
lipids, nucleosides and especially in the de-oxy nucleosides, which
have been found in no other source in nature. Many studies have shown
this mushroom’s ability to stimulate and modulate the immune
system and increase red blood cells. As an immune modulator and adaptogen,
Cordyceps was shown to boost depressed immune function, but not enhance
a normally functioning immune system to the same degree. In published
research from China, Cordyceps was reported to have anti-tumor activity
against lung cancer in both mice and humans.
Medicinal mushrooms help cancer patients
Radiotherapy and chemotherapy can damage or weaken a patient's immunological defenses. Cancer patients are in danger of infections that can invade their systems because the therapy designed to kill pathogenic cells also kills protective immune cells.
Active compounds in Reishi cause an increased response of the immune system to foreign cells, whether bacteria, viruses, or tumor cells. The author of the study said that "It was evident from clinical trials that Reishi extract significantly enhanced the immune systems of the elderly people taking it." Reishi is much more researched than Cordycps but Cancer Research UK says that "Cordyceps may be useful for cancer patients due to its enhancement of cell-mediated immunity, oxygen free radical scavenging, and support for cellular bioenergy systems."
Reishi has been the most used medicinal herb in Traditional Chinese Medicine for over 2000 years. It contains over 200 active ingredients and compounds that are the most biologically active obtainable from any play source.
Studies in Japan and Brazil suggest that regular consumption over prolonged periods reduces the levels of cancer incidence. Cancer Research UK also found that medicinal mushrooms can have a cancer preventative effect.
The ability of mushroom compounds to modulate so many immune cells
may be due to their structural diversity and variability. Polysaccharides
from medicinal mushrooms have the highest capacity for carrying biological
information and the greatest potential for structural variability.

Cancer cells hide after Chemotherapy
After the initial doses of radiation and/or chemotherapy, cancer cells start hiding.
" They develop a slime coating, and they become like Stealth bombers, and they can hide from future doses of radiation and chemotherapy. This is why repeated dose of radiation and chemotherapy become less effective".Dr. John Maras, Nu-Gen Educational Library.
" The way to get rid of this "slime coating" is to use large doses of plant and animal enzymes- especially bromelain and pancreatin. This allows an 'access point' for the immune system to attack the cancer cells".....Dr. John Maras, Nu-Gen Educational Library
What doctors say about Chemo Therapy ?
"The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don't do anything about it."
