Reishi History and Its Medicinal Uses

Reishi Nature’s Gift

From time immemorial ever since man was born, a constant fight has been going on between man and bacteria and viruses.

  • To undertake this fight on behalf of man nature has gifted him a natural doctor right from his birth.
  • This doctor alone keeps him alive longer without any disease.
  • The name of this Doctor in man is “Immunity”. This doctor was born with the man and dies with him.
  • If Immunity is strong, the body can fight effectively diseases caused by bacteria or viruses.

However, when immunity goes weak, the invading bacteria penetrate the cells of the body.

  • Having successfully penetrated cells they release toxins (poison) that cause diseases.
  • Thus when the doctor in us loses his power of resistance, we go weak and contract diseases in various organs, of the body.
  • Diseases are caused due to toxins and body imbalance.
  • Pollution may spread due to water, organic, Volatile substances, air, smoking or alcohol, etc.

Bacteria or viruses may invade cells through these pollutions and release their toxins (poison) in the cells and create diseases.
