Herbal supplements and alternative medicine are commonly used as a means to lose weight. The reishi mushroom, or ganoderma herb, is an example of such an herbal supplement. This supplement is available for purchase in most supermarkets or health food stores in the form of pills, powders, or liquid extract. Speak to your doctor for more information on the benefits and/or risk factors of using ganoderma.



According to the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, ganoderma contains active ingredients that can increase your metabolic rate after consumption. As your metabolism increases, your body uses more energy to digest food more efficiently. This energy is fueled by breaking down fat deposits and calories in your body, which can then lead to weight loss. Ganoderma increases the rate in which your body provides oxygen to your blood, which allows your body to exert additional energy.


Ganoderma supplements also contain polysaccharides which can serve as a strong detoxifying agent in your body according to the Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, . In addition, polysaccharides strengthen your body’s natural healing ability while also assisting with digestion. According to, an improved digestive system may lead to more efficient waste excretion and thus increased weight loss. Further research is needed to substantiate claims of weight loss associated with detoxifying agents, however.

      Even if you don’t have above mentioned health condition, taking Ganoderma herb is also very important if you are overweight. It effectively helps to prevent common health complications caused by overweight, especially high blood pressure and diabetes.

The article went on stating that:

“…detoxing – the idea that you can flush your system of impurities and leave your organs squeaky clean and raring to go – is a scam. It’s a pseudo-medical concept designed to sell you things.”

So is this true? Although many scientists and medical professionals are doing evidence based research, they are just taking into account their personal opinion but of course that is not the whole picture.
What we see today, they don’t see!
What Are Toxins? Will Toxins Accumulate?Toxins are substances that actually interrupt with our body physiological processes.They can be found externally (outside your body) or created internally (inside your body).

Today we live in the world filled with toxins, from food, air & water, household cleaners, electronic devices, etc. Not only that, but also toxic free radicals which are formed in ourbody. Stress hormones, emotional disturbances, anxiety and negative emotions all create free radicals as well. Therefore, living without toxic buildup is virtually impossible, which is why our body has built in mechanisms to deal with toxic overload. Crying, sweating, urinationand defecation are all natural protocols employed by the body to rid itself of toxins.

Because toxins are part of out daily life, both inside and out, it may seem that they are a natural part of living and that additional measures to deal with them are unnecessary. This, in part, is true. Free radical exposure is part of life, however, with our poor diet and lifestyle,overabundance of chemicals, pesticides, heavy metals, etc. in our food and environment, and the increasing levels of stress in our society, our body is overwhelmed with toxic buildup and needs additional help in expelling unnecessary waste material.

You may wonder: Why aren’t we all sick or in need of serious medical interventions, given thisincredible load of toxins? The answer is simple. It is because each of us is genetically and biochemically unique. Some of us are good at getting rid of toxins and waste, and others are not.

Total load is the total amount of stressors on your system at any one time – it’s like what happens when a glass fills over with water. It takes a certain amount of water to fill the glass and then, after a certain point, you put more in and it overflows.

When our detoxification system is overwhelmed, it gets overloaded. That’s when we start developing symptoms and getting sick, but it may take years of accumulated stress and toxins to get to that point.
(You may also read ‘The Main Cause of Disease‘)

What Do You Mean By Detox? Detoxification is not as simple and superficial as the article claimed to be. They did not see the bigger picture and understand what detoxification is all about.

Of course medical professionals and scientists are not worried, because they believe human body is equipped with natural detoxification ability with our elimination system:  kidneys, liver, lungs, gastrointestinal system, skin, lymphatic system. In fact, certain toxins can only be eliminated effectively when our body is healthy and at optimal conditions. Accumulation of toxins occurs if the elimination system of the body weakens.
Like any other cells in the body, elimination organs need to be fueled, maintained and well taken care of. During the detoxification process, toxins can destroy some good cells and DNA in the body, inflammation can occur and this can badly affect the immune system. On top of that with our poor eating habits, too much acidic food, our blood environment becomes chalky and the micro-blood circulation would gradually be blocked.
It is important to note that gastrointestinal and blood circulations are channel of detoxification and they are like pipes in your home that can get clogged up. If the channels of detoxification are affected, it will affect the elimination process as well. In the end, back to the fundamental basis: The Cells functions: when the cells are deprived of nutrients, oxygen, cellular toxins is unable to be eliminated, toxins accumulated in the cellular level, the cells become MALFUNCTION!Eventually, tissues are affected and functions of the organs can be affected. If these groups of tissues are in the liver, kidneys, lungs, gastrointestinal system, skin, the natural detoxification ability would surely be affected too.

Over a period of time, it can be 10 years or 15 years, symptoms of degenerative disease surface, and medical doctors will name them as diseases. Consequently, they will be put on lots of medications to relieve the symptoms, but ended up with more complications due to side effects of the drugs.

Why Do We Need To Detox?

The main problem with our diet today is taking too much macronutrients (carbohydrates, protein and fats) and severely lack of micronutrients. Example of the urban diet today:

  • Lack of enzymes due to too much overcooked food
  • Too little green food
  • Lack of micronutrients (Greens today are depleted with micronutrients due to commercialized cultivation)

Enzymes are the sparks that start and speed up (catalyst) the essential chemical reactions in our body. On the other hand, micronutrients (vitamins, cofactors, co-enzymes, minerals) are the ‘magic wands’ that assist the metabolic processes in our body.

Due to the poor diet and lifestyle today, our elimination process has been slowing down and further disrupted by accumulation of toxins. Hence, this leads to chronic degenerative diseases.

How Do We Detox Effectively?  Detoxification is like a nature cycle, we load rubbish into our body and we need to throw it out. Detoxification does not simply mean the food/nutrients we take will directly remove the toxic waste out of the body. Most of the plant based food contains a lot of precursors and raw materials for the body to improve the detoxification process. Most researchers and scientists have mistakenly interpreted detoxification as the food itself is able to sweep away the toxins just like that from the body. This is not a correct way of interpretation. Back in ancient days a lot of remedies have been available for thousands of years to assist the body in detoxification and elimination process, especially in Asian culture with different combination of herbs to alleviate the ailments and they have been proven to work among the community.

Detoxification process should be done on daily basis and not something to be done very drastically because your body does not like shocks, whether it is a good shock or a bad shock. A drastic detoxification can sometimes cause more burden than good to your body. It is something like if you haven’t cleaned your house for 3 long years, you will be having so much difficulty in cleaning the entire place within a short period of time; instead if your house has been consistently cleaned, you will not experience much stress at cleaning the house and the effort needed will be much lesser.

Do not forget that from the raw materials that I mentioned, detoxification needs raw materials as transporters to remove the toxins out of the body. It is described as giving you a mop, a broomstick, some detergent and soap and brush to clean the house. You won’t be able to perform any cleaning without any of those cleaning apparatus. Raw materials and precursors provide apparatus and building blocks for detoxification process.

Why DXN Ganoderma and other health products can detox to cellular level and health status can be improved?

History of ganoderma in history has been consumed by human for thousands of years, and able to achieve good health and longevity. How does it work?
Ganoderma is functional food. The properties in ganoderma is able to balance pH in the body, thus remove the chalky blood environment. It also has the nutrient (Adenosine) toremove the clogged blood circulations, especially the micro blood circulations. Follow by Polysaccharides which are the healer, regenerate the cells functions, thus restore cells/tissues/organs/systemic functions.
When the systemic functions are restored, homeostasis in the body can be achieved and ournatural healing abilities can be restored because the detoxification organs and system have been improved and good health status can be achieved.
So the statement says:
 “There is no known way – certainly not through detox treatments – to make something that works perfectly well in a healthy body work better.”

Ganotherapy is the way that can make our body work better because Ganotherapy can holistically reverse our body system from poor to good!

Ganotherapy By Dato’ Dr. Lim Siow Jin

Ganotherapy in general

In the world today, majority of the population are in the state of ‘pre-illness’ due to environmental
pollution, stresses and unhealthy lifestyle such as consuming diets which are high in fats, cholesterol,
sugar, salt and chemical additives. Under these circumstances, it is wise to prevent any deterioration
in health rather than seek a cure after illness prevails as the saying goes: “Prevention is better than
Ganotherapy is one of the holistic approached to alternative complementary medicine. The
underlying belief is that our body is the best doctor. Our body immune system when at its optimum
condition is able to fight numerous diseases at one time, knowing the priority and without having
side effects. All we see or feel is the reactions as it gets rid of the toxins and cure the illnesses. In
Ganotherapy, it uses Ganoderma extracts from the fruit body and its mycelium to gain health.

The 4 basic principles of Ganotherapy are:

1. Illnesses are caused by 2 sources : Toxins in our body and disharmony in body functions.
2. Ganoderma does not cure illness, but it helps to balance up our body system and improve
immunity against diseases.
3. Any reaction that takes place is caused by our body system and not by the intake of
4. The dosage of Ganoderma taken is irrelevant to diseases.

Stages in Ganotherapy

There are several stages in Ganotherapy .

Stage 1: Scanning (1-30 days)
Ganoderma helps to regulate the body functions. During the initial intake, the scanning effect will
reflect in several reactions of the body, through which we may identify the ailing areas of the body.

Stage 2: Cleansing –Detoxification (1-30 weeks)
1. Uric acid, excess cholesterol, fat and calcium deposit, bad tissue and other chemicals
accumulated in our body are toxins
2. The toxins are removed from our body by: o Sweating o The circulation system – ( Kidney &
liver ) and then discharged from the body through urination and stool. o Boils, rashes, phlegm
and mucus discharge

Stage 3: Regulating (1- 12 months)
1. Balancing effect of Ganoderma helps to regulate the body functions.
2. Many reactions can be observed during regulation. This is a sign that the body is healing and
one should not worry about it.
3. One should continue to consume Reishi Gano (RG).
4. If the reaction is too vigorous, reduce the dosage and/or increase intake of Ganocelium (GL)
5. After the reaction in reduced or over, resume normal dosage. The reaction may come back
but proceed with the dosage.

Stage 4: Building (6 -24 months)
1. This is the process of building and healing body parts that have sustained injuries or damage.
2. Strengthening the immune system, improving physical strength and mental calmness and
creating more resistance to diseases.
3. Supplying essential elements to the body, such as minerals and triterpenoid for the recovery
of bodily functions.

Stage 5: Regenerating (1 – 3 years)
1. This is the ultimate aim of Ganotherapy.
2. It is the process whereby our body is functioning at its optimum level and has a rejuvenating
effect (restore youthful appearance, strength and peace of mind).

Misconception of herbal medicine
When a person has a diseases or illness, they usually turn to a prescription drug to solve that problem.
Unknown to most patients, however, is the fact that prescription drugs only mask the symptoms of the
disease they don’t actually eliminate the source of the problem. Many users of herbs, nutritional
supplements and other complementary or alternative health solutions view those solutions in the same
way they view conventional medicine. That is, they are asking for an herb to cure their symptom. If
they have pain, they want a pill that will eliminate the pain, and the only difference between patients
who turn to conventional medicine and patients who turn to natural medicine is that the natural
patient wants a pain pill from a plant.
All this is extremely frustrating for practitioners of alternative medicine, holistic medicine, herbalists,
nutritionists, etc. Because they want to help patients, but most patients really aren’t looking for longterm
solutions: they’re looking for short-term masking of their symptoms, using products that they can
call “natural.” Alternative medicine is no better than conventional medicine if you treat it as a
temporary cover up for a pattern of symptoms that you created in your life through your unwillingness
to make changes that lead to long term health. Herbal medicine has a much higher purpose than to be
relegated to the limited worldview of conventional medicine. Herbs should be used holistically to
support a healthy lifestyle. Some herbs are truly powerful and can, indeed, help a person overcome
practically any disease: cancer, heart disease, diabetes, depression, you name it, but to maintain long
term good health we need to change our lifestyle by consuming healthy diet and exercising.

Ganotherapy supports in achieving good health by detoxifying and regulating the body. However as
these products are actually food, we need to consume enough regularly, for them to make a
difference. Perseverance and commitment to change ourselves is important as the body may feel
some reaction as it gets rid of the toxins accumulated over the years!!
DXN Ganoderma
How does it act on body?

In the body, all the five active elements of Ganoderma act in synergy (coordination) to bring in total
health, which is the basis of GANOTHERAPY. Ganoderma, when consumed, reaches all the cells in the
body due to its unique quality of being an Adaptogen. Then the following five steps of health
improvement take place.

SCANNING: During this process, the body cells are checked for Toxins and Inactivity. Most of these
kinds of defects at the cell level are reported by way of REFLECTIONS through the external organs like
eyes, nose, ear etc. This is just a diagnostic phase which normally occurs within 6 weeks of starting
Ganotherapy and lingers for about 5~7 days.

DETOXIFICATION (CLEANSING): (8-30 weeks): During this phase, the unwanted / harmful matters
(called the toxins) are removed from the body. The body using its own natural excretory mechanism,
which is activated by Ganoderma, carries out this process. This phase takes place for about 5 ~ 12
days, depending on the level and quality of toxins.
During this process of detoxification, water soluble toxins ( eg., sugar, uric acid ) find their exit through
urine and sweat. Fat soluble toxins ( eg., cholesterol) are easily disposed off through phlegm.

REGULATION (1 ~ 12 months ) : The bio-Chemical as well as bio-electric factors of the body are
balanced and the organ functions are regulated to normal levels.

BUILDING (6 ~ 24 months ) : In this phase, the damaged cells are repaired and reconstructed.
Inactive cells are re-activated. Body’s natural immune system is activated.

REJUVENATION (1 ~ 3 years ) : It is a continuous process through-out life and during the process,
body gains youthfulness. Oxidation of the cells prevented and ageing of the cells delayed. The natural
immune system is activated at all levels.
