Reishi & Hepatitis.

Hepatitis A is one of five known viruses that cause inflammation of the liver (the others are B, C, D and E). The vast majority of people recover from the infection within six months without any serious health problems.
Hepatitis B is very common in Asia, China, Philippines, China, Africa and the Middle east. In Europe and North America the incidence of known carriers is about 1 in a 1000 people. World wide, it is estimated that 10 to 30 million people become infected with the virus each year.
Hepatitis C  infection is increasing worldwide. The World Health Organization estimates that more than 170 million individuals throughout the world are infected with Hepatitis C.
Hepatitis D is a liver disease with symptoms are similar to Hepatitis B and may include fever, lack of energy, nausea, vomiting, abdominal discomfort, and jaundice. Some who have Hepatitis D have no symptoms. Up to 20% of Hepatitis D infections are fatal. Infected persons may recover or develop chronic, long-term Hepatitis D (carrier) and are at risk for cirrhosis (scarring of the liver) and liver failure.

Taking a natural approach to Hepatitis means focusing on supporting the liver and keeping the immune system healthy.
Reishi Mushroom has shown favorable results in treating hepatitis, especially in cases without severe impairment of liver function (Chang & But, 1986). In a study of 355 cases of hepatitis B treated with Wulingdan Pill, which includes the fruiting body of Reishi, 92.4% of the patients had positive results (Van et al, 1987).
Reishi Mushroom balances the immune system – a remedy of first choice for all auto-immune disorders, it also aids liver function and circulation.  It is a broad acting remedyand can be taken on a long-term basis.  Reishi has been classed as the highest value healing herb in China for thousands of years. Reishi fits well into any healing programme, as a general tonic and as an immune modulator that tends to calm down the destructive aspects of the immune system – often a stumbling block in the treatment of chronic health problems.  At the same time Reishi will improve immune response where it is under functioning.
