When they discovered it on the high plateaus in the Tibetan Plateau, the scientists did not know how to classify this organism as coming from another planet. The locals were saying that winter is an animal, so that summer can turn into grass, and that it heals all the diseases. It took years of laboratory studies to determine that it is a funny, strange, as advanced as a survival adaptation. The Tibetan mushroom, as it is called, has the unique ability to live on insects and to become virtually one with them, living in symbiosis with the bodies that house it, hence the popular belief as this “being” would could turn from grass to animal and vice versa.
It grows only at very high altitudes, never seen at less than 4000 meters, and only in the alpine hollows above the limit of the forest vegetation. The European scholars who met her for the first time in Tibet gave her the scientific name of Cordyceps, which would translate into the insinuated beating or living grass. In Asia (Tibet, Nepal, Bhutan, India) there have so far been discovered about 300 Cordyceps species, all of which live on insects and rarely on plants, but the Tibetan version seems – the most powerful qualities. In an ancient Chinese writing, during the Tang dynasty, the Tibetan mushroom is first described as a Yang (male) energy amplifier, but also a powerful stimulant of the kidney and lungs meridians. It was brought with great sacrifices at the foot of the Himalayan mountains and was the remedy given to the aristocrats to extend their lives and cure them of serious illnesses. Modern science has only begun to become aware in the last decades of the therapeutic virtues of this mushroom. And the main merit for these findings is given by dozens of Chinese scientists who have studied in hospitals and laboratories for years to decipher the mysteries of the fungus brought from Tibet.
Cordyceps is a highly effective fungal fungus. There is no single active principle to explain its antitumor, immunostimulatory and immunomodulatory actions and, as such, obtaining Tibetan fungus semisynthetic drugs is not desirable, the whole extract being much more effective. The healing substances act cumulatively, their therapeutic effects appearing somewhat slower, but then also after the cessation of treatment.
In biology, a very interesting fact has been found: parasitic plants are great specialists in secreting substances destroying malignant tumors, which are ultimately parasites, extremely dangerous. For example, the bullet or tortelle, two highly parasitic plants spread to us, are among the most powerful antitumorals in the European flora. Well, the Tibetan fungus, specializing in animal parasite, seems to know better than anyone how to fight effectively with an invading tumor. Here are some of the forms of cancer in which the effectiveness of Tibetan mushroom has been demonstrated:
* Colon and rectum cancer – a research by Chinese scientists in 2007 shows that two active principles, cordicapin and cordic acid, inhibit the growth of colon tumors. In combination with India’s saffron, the efficacy of these active principles increases, also having a blocking effect on bowel vascularization.
* Breast cancer – A Japanese study in 2008 demonstrated that administering the Cordyceps extract stimulates the immune system to fight against breast tumors, making them in remission.
* Lung Cancer – Two studies, dating back to 1999 and 2007, demonstrate that active substances in the Tibetan fungus trigger so-called apoptosis, the programmed death of malignant cells located in the lungs.
* Skin cancer – an experiment on animals with malignant melanoma (the most aggressive form of skin cancer) has demonstrated a double action of Tibetan mushroom: 1. Inhibit the development of melanoma 2. Prevents its metastasis in the body. In combination with the saffron of India, its effect is even stronger, curcuminosides in it inhibiting melanoma recurrence after he has entered remission.
* Prostate cancer – its extension is stopped in many cases after a 24-week treatment with Tibetan Mushroom Extract.
* Other forms of cancer in which the positive effect of Tibetan fungus has been demonstrated are: liver cancer, cervical cancer, malignant lymphoma, oral cancer, gastric cancer, leukemia, etc.
Tibetan mushroom can also be used before the disease. For prevention, administer 600 milligrams of Cordyceps extract daily in 3-month treatments followed by another 3-6 month break. To treat already established cancer, administer 1,200 milligrams of Tibetan Mushroom Extract in 6-month courses, followed by 1-2 months of rest, after which the administration is resumed.
