This is no ordinary coffee. (and comes as green tea or hot chocolate too)


Is ganoderma mushroom coffee healthy? It is, as long as you stick to a specific few brands. (Organo and 4 Sigmatic)

Ganoderma lucidum comprises probably 400 different biologically active constituents.  These compounds have a broad spectrum of pharmacological actions including immunomodulation, anticancer, antidiabetic, antioxidant, antiatherosclerotic, antifibrotic, chemopreventive, antitumor, anticancer drug toxicity prevention, analgesic, anti inflammatory, antinociceptive, antimicrobial, hypolipidemic, hepatoprotective, antiandrogenic, antiangiogenic, antiherpetic, antiarthritic, antiosteoporotic, antiaging, antiulcer properties and estrogenic balancing activity.

A search on pubmed will reveal such benefits as:

  • Eases Fibromyalgia if taken daily for 6 weeks
  • Raises neuronal nitric oxide
  • Reduces inflammation
  • Helps antioxidant status of mitochondria both in brain and body
  • Makes cholesterol and platelets less sticky
  • Supresses migration of highly aggressive breast an prostate cancers
  • Prevents beta-amyloid build up in Alzheimer’s’
  • May help prevent and restore function in Parkinson’s
  • Promote survival and axon regeneration of injured spinal motor neurons in rats
  • Hepatic and renal protective effects
  • Significant anti-HIV-1 protease effects
  • Improves recovery from herpes
  • Kills H Pylori
  • Inhibits Staph aureus
  • Deceases fasting serum glucose, insulin and fat
  • In diabetics protects and enhances pancreatic B-cell regeneration
  • More effective than drugs for controlling RA pain
  • Effective anti-allergy
  • Rats live 9-20% longer1 (translates to humans as 7-16 years)
  • Improves wound healing (inc collagen)

Some things I didn’t mention in the video:
Ganoderma clears 88% of HPV in 60 days  when taken with turkey tail mushroom.

Ganoderma may be as good as diazepam/Valium for decreasing anxiety and pain (in high doses), and is MUCH safer.

Ganoderma reduced bone inflammation.

The Paleo Diet Explained

Now the Christmas excess is out of the way, let’s talk about food!

One of our practice members recently asked about the hunter-gatherer diet that I had recommended, saying that someone else had ‘debunked’ it.

The problem is, there are a few books about the subject, including ‘The Paleo Diet’ and the ‘Stone Age Diet’, and none of these books actually talks about the scientifically sound diet I mean. I had just assumed they did.
