Research studies have found that Lingzhi, Yunzhi, Ginseng and Chinese caterpillar fungus do contain anti-cancer components. However, they could not relieve any cancer-related problems by theirs' own. In order to have a good management of cancer, integrative measures should be taken based on the unique condition of each patient. Therefore, how to use these herbs as part of the treatment should be instructed by registered CMP1.
Normally there is no need for healthy people to take these herbs because adverse effects may result if these herbs are used wrongly. For example, if someone with “internal-fire” takes Ginseng, which is “hot” in nature, or if somebody with “weak spleen” and “cold stomach” have too much Chinese caterpillar fungus, discomforts may happen.
