Testimony: Hepatitis B Carrier and Liver Cancer

Ms LC's brother-in-law, 63, was diagnosed as a carrier of Hepatitis B virus 20 years ago. No medication was available. He was monitored annually through blood test. 6 years ago, the Hepatitis B virus was activated. As he took his medication inconsistently, his liver hardened and there was a tumor. He was diagnosed with liver cancer. He underwent an operation which removed 20% of his liver and the tumor.
After the operation, he felt very tired, couldn't walk and needed help to bathe and dress his wound. His tummy was bloated and every 2 weeks, he had to extract / drain out about 20 liters of water. The cost was S$2,000+ each time. The doctor eventually told him there's no medication and this is not a long-term solution.
Dosage: After listening to Dr Chen's advice, he decided to consume 20 capsules Yung Kien Ganoderma 2 + 8 capsules Yung Kien Ganoderma daily.
Result: After 2 months, he could go back to work and drive himself around. There was no more water retention problem in his stomach.
In January 2013, he underwent a successful liver transplant. He was discharged from hospital after only 8 days. He could drive after 2 months. He has now gotten back his health.


Testimony: 6 Cysts in Liver

Ms C's friend, a lady in her late 40s and mother of 2, was diagnosed with 6 cysts in her liver in July 2007. Her doctor did not recommend any medication or operation.
Dosage: She consumed 2 bottles Yung Kien Ganoderma (YK) + 1 bottle Yung Kien Pollen + 6 sachets Jia Hor Soya Protein + 3 sachets Jia Hor Fiber + 3 sachets Vitaking + 2 sachets Luchun Lingzhi Tea, daily. She cut down on consumption of meat.
14 days later, she reduced her her consumption of YK to 1 bottle a day and continued for 3 months.
Vertigo Reactions: very tired, a lot more bowel movements with dark and smelly stools.
3 months later - 3 of the cysts have shrunk.
1 year later - she was given a clean bill of health by the doctor.
And since 2007 until now, her liver is still in tip-top condition.
For maintenance: She takes 6 to 12 capsules YK daily.


Testimony: Stage 4 Liver Cancer

Ms K's friend, a 52 year old woman, was diagnosed with Stage 4 Liver Cancer, which was spread from breast cancer.
Dosage: She consumed 10 capsules Yung Kien Ganoderma2 (YK2) daily in May 2013 for 2 weeks. Then she increased her dosage to 20 YK2 daily for 2 weeks.
In June 2013, she underwent 6 cycles of chemotherapy over 18 weeks. At the same time, she was consuming 30 capsules YK2 daily. She stopped during the second session of chemo upon doctor's advice when he found out she was taking Lingzhi.
She stopped for 1 week, but restarted without her doctor's knowledge as she felt a lot of negative results when she stopped.
Result: In Sept 2013, her checkup confirmed no cancer cells were found in her liver, despite her being a Stage 4 Cancer patient.
Due to the severity of her condition, she was advised to continue to take 30 capsules YK2 daily for another 6 months.
On Month 4, during her checkup, the doctor says her liver is still in tip top condition. So she can reduce her dosage to 20 capsules YK2 daily. She also consumes a combination of Shuang Hor supplementary products including Jia Hor Soya Protein, Vitaking, Yung Kien Pollen and Lactoberry.


Testimony: Initial Stage Liver Fibrosis

Ms G's friend, a male in his mid-50s, has been a hepatitis B virus carrier since 1995. He started to take a maintenance dose of 2 to 4 capsules Yung Kien Ganoderma (YK) daily since 2009. His only vertigo reaction was diarrhea for 2 to 3 weeks. He then increased his dosage to 8 capsules YK daily. When his condition improved, he reduced his dosage again.
During one of his annual checkups in March 2013, he discovered a spike in the readings of his liver function test. He was diagnosed with initial stage liver fibrosis.
A FibroScan was done on his liver. It's a technique to assess the stiffness of his liver, i.e. detect the extent of liver scarring. His results indicated a median score of 8.4 kPa (between F2 / F3 - initial stage liver fibrosis). A reading of above 12.5 kPa indicates severe liver fibrosis.
Dosage: Starting March 2013, he consumed 12 to 16 capsules YK + 4 to 6 capsules Yung Kien Pollen daily. There wasn't much vertigo reactions, only some feeling of heatiness.
Result: On September 2013, the test showed a median reading of 5.9 kPa (F1 - no or insignificant fibrosis) .
Now he maintains at 4 capsules YK daily.
He never take any medications at all throughout this duration.
