 Ganoderma - What Is It? 


TOP royal gano

          Ganoderma Lucidum, or Royal Gano (reishi, lingzhi, biladi top, young ji) is a basidiomycete, lamellaless fungus belonging to the family of polyporaceae.  In nature, it grows in densely wooded mountain of high humidity and dim lighting.  It is rarely found since it flourishes mainly on the dried trunks of dead plum, guercus serrata or pasonia trees.  Out of 10,000 such aged trees, perhaps 2 or 3 will have Royal Gano growth, therefore it is very scarce indeed.  The spores of Royal Gano have such tough outer husks that germination is next to impossible and this accounts for its rarity.  It was said that in the old days when one discovered Royal Gano, it had to be kept a secret even from one's closest relative and there was big celebration upon fruitful return.  The herballous history of Royal Gano had long been documented in the oldest Chinese pharmacopoeia written in about the first or second century B.C..  In it Royal Gano had been recorded as having the most extensive and effective healing powers.  It is because of this recognition that there is diligent research for methods of Royal Gano cultivation feasible for commercial productions.  At about 1972, the cultivation of Royal Gano became successful and as a result, what was once only attainable by the privileged is now readily make available to everyone.  A number of countries are now conducting sophisticated research in Royal Gano hoping to further the practice and science of medicine.  These webpages hope to report the results of such research.


TOP           In ancient time, Royal Gano in medicine was considered so auspicious that its medical efficacy has been attested to in the oldest Chinese medical text (presumed to be over 2,000 years old).  The book, which are known in Japan as "Shinnoh Honsohkyo", is now accepted as being the original textbook of Oriental medical science.  In it, 365 kinds of medicines are classified and explained.  The medicines are basically classified into 3 categories: 120 of them are declared to be "superior" medicines, another 120 are classified as "average" medicines, and the remaining 125 are placed in the "fair" category.  The "superior" medicines are called "God's Herbs" and they are for perpetual youth and longevity - the medicines of the legendary wizards.  The "average" category medicines are those which can be taken as a tonic, and those in the "fair" category are taken to remedy specific ailments.  One must be careful about the volume taken of the "average" and "fair" category medicines, and should never take them continuously.  However, the book states that for "superior" medicines, any amount can be taken as desired on a continuous basis with no unfavorable effects.  Of the superior medicines listed in the text, Royal Gano was rated number one.  You can see how important and powerful Royal Gano was considered in ancient times.  It achieved its ranking in the Chinese text not because of its symbolic importance as a good omen but because of its medicinal properties.  Centuries ago, Royal Gano was said to be a medicine that would grant you eternal youth and longevity.  But after 2,000 years, Royal Gano has jumped into the spotlight as a specific medicine for cancer.  This must be a better irony for those in the modern medical profession who discounted the herbal remedies of Oriental medicine as being " old wives' tales".  The families of many cancer patients who have received a diagnostic "death sentence" now seek Royal Gano as the only way left for them.
