Medicinal mushrooms make a valuable contribution to the holistic cancer therapy

Limeshain, February 2017*** With this year’s World Cancer Day on Februar4th coming, the world takes a look at the current developments. The statistics on new diseases are still depressing. In the United Kingdom alone, 356.860 people were affected by cancer in 2014 according to The absolute number of new cases of cancer has almost doubled up since the 1970’s. Experts are sure that the number of affected people will further increase. For the year 2020 it is estimated that nearly the half of the British population has suffered from cancer once in their life.

Effective in the prevention and therapy
Therefore, it is good to know that naturopathy can offer a lot of effective therapies to the holistic treatment of cancer. For example, medicinal mushrooms have proven effective and valuable in cancer prevention and as well as a support of the holistic cancer treatment. This could be shown by long-time observational studies in naturopathy, for example by MykoTroph - Institute for Medicinal Mushrooms. Healing with mushrooms has its origins in the Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and belongs to the classic methods of naturopathy. Its effectiveness is proven by experiences from naturopathy and international research studies.

Medicinal mushrooms help the body
Medicinal mushrooms also called vitality mushrooms or medically active mushrooms are rich in valuable vital substances and antioxidants. Moreover, they contain a high amount of triterpenes and polysaccharides. These ingredients have a regulating and strengthening effect on the immune system. Especially, the polysaccharides and beta-glucans are important. These substances stimulate the natural killer cells, T-helper cells and phagocytes. That’s why medicinal mushrooms can help to recognize degenerated cells and fight them. Some mushrooms are awarded to have tumour inhibiting properties. In Japan, it is common to use medications which contain particular substances from medicinal substances: Lentinan, a beta-glucan contained in medicinal mushroom Shiitake has been successfully used for years in oncology.
Further important medically active mushrooms in naturopathic cancer therapy are Reishi and Agaricus blazei murrill (ABM).

Improvement of life quality
Cancer therapy is in general very stressful and exhausting for the affected persons. Besides the treatment of the disease, medicinal mushrooms can be very helpful to soothe the side effects of chemotherapy. During a chemotherapy aggressive cytotoxins get into the organism. The detoxifying properties of medicinal mushrooms can make the use a very good support for the therapy.
If administered side effects like vomiting, lack of appetite, exhaustion and depression can be reduced. This can be led back to their high content of glyconutrients. Pain can also be alleviated by their use. For example by the medicinal mushroom Reishi, which is also called "mushroom of eternal life" in East Asia. For all these reasons, medicinal mushrooms can contribute to a considerable improvement in the overall condition and the quality of life of those affected, parallel to the school medicine therapy.

Medicinal mushrooms are available as mushroom powder capsules. MykoTroph Institute advises to take great care in the selection. The so-called "mushroom powder made from the whole mushroom" has proven its effectiveness. Only here are all the active ingredients of the healing and vital mushrooms contained. Another quality feature is the cultivation of mushrooms in Germany in organic quality. Please consult your therapist. Further information on Mycotherapy can be found on or via +49 6047 988530
