Does Lingzhi Cause Side Effects?

Saturday 4 August 2012

Some people say Lingzhi is no good because it has side effects.

No. That is not true. Lingzhi does not cause side effect. However, there is a particular experience that should be highlighted. Lingzhi helps normalize your body constitution by helping your body to detoxify and improve metabolism. As a result, consumers of Lingzhi will experience a reaction called Healing Reaction (or Vertigo Reaction).

Your body will go through a period of discomfort before it gets better. For example, to get your house in order, the spring-cleaning will bring about a period of disarray and disorder first. Likewise, when taking Lingzhi, old toxins are stirred up and begin to circulate in your body again. The toxins had caused you some problems when it entered your body. Now, it won't leave your body without causing some discomfort. In other words, this Healing Reaction happens when stored toxins are being dissolved and discharged from your body. It is this discomfort that has been misunderstood as side effects.

What are some common Healing Reaction (Vertigo Reaction)?

1. Flatulance
You may pass out gas many times a day for a certain duration.
(A sign of toxin and trapped gas being eliminated from your congested colon and tissues)

2. Frequent bowel movements
You may pass out watery, smelly or black stools over a certain duration. This bowel movement reaction may sometimes be up to 3-4 times a day.
(A sign of colon cleansing)

3. Dark stools and/or blood traces in stool
Alcohol harms the liver. It hardens the liver and causes it to malfunction. Lingzhi is able to remove alcohol toxins to allow cells in the liver to regenerate and be normal again. Reactions such dark and bloody stools can be seen for a duration. However, bowel movement will resume its normal function once this temporary reaction is over.
(A sign of liver cleansing)

4. Increase in urination
Dark colored urine will be passed out in advanced cases of high uric level and kidney malfunction. The color will be come clearer as the condition improves.
(A sign of kidney and bladder cleansing)

5. Discharging of clots
Whatever blockages or infections in the womb, uterus and cervix will be flushed out in the form of blood clots, extra menstrual or white/brown discharge for a certain duration.
(A sign of reproductive organ cleansing)

6. Phlegm and mucus discharge
Lingzhi is very helpful for asthma and bronchitis sufferers. More phlegm and mucus will be discharged. The longer the illness has advanced, the longer the time is needed to clear the affected organs.

Lingzhi is helpful for those who have sinus. Persistent running nose and itchy nostril may occur for a few weeks. Do not attempt to stop the running nose reaction, as this is only temporary. In some cases, blood debris and clots are discharged, a sign of final cleansing from the nose.
(A sign of respiratory system cleansing)

7. Itchiness or rashes
If the lymphatic vessels are contaminated with toxins, bacteria or virus, rashes will appear on the skin. Itchiness over the lymph nodes area will cause some discomfort. The duration depends on the level of contamination. If the itchiness is unbearable, apply ointment for relief.

8. Other Healing Reactions
Fever and feelings of heatiness and fatigue are common, especially when you have an acidic body constitution, always stressed out or when your liver is not so well.

How long do these Healing/Vertigo Reactions last?

The reactions differ from person to person depending on the amount of toxins in your body that are being eliminated. The more toxic is your body, the more severe the reactions may be. Consumers who experience the Vertigo Reactions will have faster results. Those who do not encounter any reactions will find recovery slower. Most importantly, they are only temporary in nature.

Sometimes, symptoms of pain may surface. If so, this is an indication of tissue or organ weakness in your body. When pain appears at any point of time, increase dosage to double or triple to speed up the cleansing process.

Lingzhi is also a Scanner, in that it is able to scan your body for any disease that is in the pre-illness stage (something like going for a full-body thorough medical check-up). Therefore, if the Vertigo Reactions persist for a long period, seek medical opinion. Consult a doctor to get an opinion on the state of your health.

Healing / Vertigo Reactions are an important aspect of true and deep healing. Although unpleasant, it will be easier to go through if you understand why is it important, and welcome it as part of your healing process. If you don't understand, you may conclude that Lingzhi is "not for you" and decide to end its consumption prematurely. You will then deprive yourself of its full goodness and benefits.
