The power of medicinal mushrooms to heal, including actively combating cancer, is supported by a solid body of human clinical research. How is it that they possess such immense therapeutic activity? And why have they been ignored by the conventional medical system?
Over the course of the past few years, we have uncovered a remarkable body of research on the medicinal properties of mushrooms. Some of these studies we have reported on in greater depth in previous writings, focusing on how they: treat HPV infection, boost immune function, produce vegan vitamin D3, lower PSA (prostate-specific antigen) levels in men, and boost brain function.
These examples, while impressive, are only the tip of the iceberg. At GreenMedInfo.com, we have identified over 200 conditions that may benefit from them, as well as over 100 different beneficial effects they can induce through the modulation of various physiological systems and pathways within the body, e.g. immunomodulatory, anti-proliferative, anti-inflammatory. (You can search through the primary literature we have gathered on the topic on the Medicinal Mushroom research portal.)
