The Ganoderma lucidum mushroom encourages cellular detoxification, by activating and energizing the cells to deal with the accumulating toxins either in the cell nucleus or membrane. The cells are induced to expel the toxins and, as the cells do this, sometimes, the process produces an appearance of the symptoms related to the person’s prevailing problem.
Sometimes, people with a heavy load of toxins may exhibit the latest symptom of their prevailing problem as the first sign of detoxification. As the toxins exit the body, they take one of the three exit routes: the SKIN, the RESPIRATORY SYSTEM, or the DIGESTIVE SYSTEM. When exiting through the skin, dermatitis may appear.
When going out through the respiratory mucosa, cough or colds are usually common, and when they go out through the gastro-intestinal mucosa, diarrhea or constipation sometimes appears. These new symptoms could cause the uninformed to become alarmed. It may even cause them to conclude that the mushroom extract is bad for them. This is, however, a natural part of healing and is a POSITIVE SIGN that a cleansing reaction as part of healing is occurring.
The longer you stay on Ganoderma lucidum, the better the healing results will be. If the detox reaction is too much to handle at any time, just cut back the dose, BUT DON’T STOP the healing process, as the body is in the middle of cleaning itself out.
Remember, Ganoderma lucidum is helping your body to release its build up of toxins and this may give you short-term headaches, coughs, pains in joints and other unusual reactions. These are actually positive signs that your body is indeed going through the detox process.
