Chaga mushroom is used as an anti - cancer medicine
« on: February 10, 2010, 08:20:23 AM »
Chaga is the strongest antioxidant there is on planet earth.  It can help heal cancer, HURRAY!!!
What is it?  Well, it is a mushroom, a fungus that likes to grow on birch trees.  You can get it yourslef in the woods, or order it out of the Internet.  When you boil a hunk,  you can use it over and over again about for 10 times before it gets too weak, and guess what?  The drink, when you are done boiling it, taste a lot like coffee!!
Most folks, though, take the tincture or power.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chaga_mushroom

hmm sounds good.  I like coffee.  yum.  Especially with French Vanilla creamer.  I might just price it.   Cancer isn't in my side of the family.  No one has ever had cancer in my family, but on my husbands its pretty prevalent.  4 of his Moms sister's have died from cancer.  There are only 3 sisters left and two brothers I believe.

 ;)Dear Lori,
I am so glad that the big C does not run in your family! And it is worth it to do a leetle prevention, because we all have to deal with environmental pollution that can cause, yes, cause cancer.  Chaga is a great tool to help your immune system stay intact, balanced and strong.
I hope where you live that the snow has left you alone.  Sigh.....we are now getting the next snowstorm.  Germany, where I live, has no more salt, for the streets.  It is now Carnival time, and this weekend there will be parades everywhere, and Germany had to beg Spain for some salt, so the streets could be clear for the big parades. 
I wish you sunshine and warmth,
Bye for now,
Mary

I feel most everyone should think about laying in a supply of powerful natural anti cancer fighters. Every group should have someone who will administer herbs and/or medicines.
Some will take them, some will not.
I don't like to say it but the sheer stress of what could be coming may be enough to kill off a lot of people.
We need to feel we have ammo for our immune systems, that alone will help.

ANCESTRAL APOTHECARY  Chaga Mushroom Decoction for Anti-Tumor Benefits

Chaga Mushroom Decoction for Anti-Tumor Benefits
May 31st, 2011 by atava in Medicinal Mushrooms, Medicine Making
Chaga, Inonotus obliquus, called birch bark fungus has many healing benefits.  Like many medicinal mushrooms, chaga has special benefits to the immune system and is an important ally for working with cancer.  It has been researched to help breast, cervical and lung cancers.
 
To extract the healing properties of chaga, you need to make a lengthy decoction.   Here is a recipe for a chaga decoction adapted from The Fungal Pharmacy, Medicinal Mushrooms of Western Canada by Robert Rogers that comes from a traditional Russian recipe:  Pour 2.5 liters of boiling water over 500 grams of dry chaga.
Cover & let stand at room temperature for four days.
Strain & refrigerate the first liquid.
Take the chaga & grind to a mush.
Add 2 liters of 50 degree Celsius water to the chaga mush & let stand for 48 hours.
Strain second decoction.
Add two chaga liquids together.
Drink 200 ml 4X/day before meals.
Optional:  Add 25-25% alcohol to the final product so it will last indefinitely, otherwise it must be prepared every 4 days.

Submitted by: RUBIA_LIZ
Number of Servings: 5

Ingredients

Sesame Seeds, 1/2cup
Banana, fresh, 1 medium (7" to 7-7/8" long)
Cinnamon, ground, 1 tbsp
Vanilla Extract, 1/2 tsp
850 ml water

Directions

Soak 1/4-1/2 cup of sesame seeds over night. In the morning, drain the seeds, and put them in a blender. Pour fresh water into the blender. After blending really well, drain the liquid into a container, and compost the pulp, or just blend it all together if you want "crunchiness" in your mylk. Rinse the blender, and then put the drained liquid back in the blender, with one banana.

Turkey tail mushrooms have been shown to boost your killer T cells per a recent clinical trial.  I was able to attend a seminar held by Paul Stamets at Fungi Perfecti http://www.fungi.com/ soon after his mother was cured of stage 4 breast cancer.  Look at the TedMed video for more info.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pXHDoROh2hA

An excerpt from this ad about Chaga - Inonotus Obliquus
- Yowbarb

http://www.mitobi.com/chaga.html 

The Chaga mushroom is a parasitic fungus that grows on Birch and Alder in colder climates. The Chaga has been used in Russia as a folk medicine since the 16th century and Nobel Prize winning literalist Alexandr Solzhenitsyn credits it with curing his Cancer.
 Chaga tea is used in the Russian folk medicine for a wide treatment of ailments including gastritis, ulcers, tuberculosis and Cancer. Recent studies have shown that it has a very high antioxidant compounds. The FDA has recommended that people should increase their antioxidant consumption to 7000 ORAC units a day to help lower their risk of Cancer.

What is ORAC?
 ORAC stands for "Oxygen Radical Absorbent Capacity". This is a scale that measures the amount of free oxygen radicals in your body that a food or supplement can absorb. Free oxygen radicals are formed in our body from normal daily living, electricity, pollution, sun exposure and various other unavoidables. These free radicals bounce around our body beating up on our cell structure and organs, making us more susceptible to diseases. Cigarette smoke is full of free radicals. Ever notice how much older smokers look?
 Researchers have also discovered that consumption of foods with a high ORAC score help protect against age related memory loss.
 Chaga has the highest reported ORAC score in natural foods or oils. Chaga also has Polysaccharides, that other medicinal mushrooms contain, and Triterpenes only found elsewhere in Ganoderma.
