History of Ling Zhi Lingzhi
This mushroom has enjoyed an unusual reputation in Asia for more than 2,000 years. It is mentioned in the oldest written Chinese pharmacopeia (the classic Seng Nong herbarium – published in 56 BC), and it is believed that Asians knew reishi for centuries, even millennia before that date.
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and, following on from it, the Kempo medicine of Japan, consider the flesh of the reishi to be a precious tonic of the Qi (or Chi), the vital energy that sustains the whole body. As a result, in the traditional pharmacopeia, it is attributed to a global action of the adaptogenic type. For TCM, such substances have the power to fortify the entire body and help it maintain an optimal state of health and balance.
Ling Zhi is very appreciated in TCM, as it is extremely rare in the wild. It grows only in deep mountain forests, usually on the trunks of decaying plum trees. Although the Chinese tried for centuries to cultivate Ling Zhi, it was not until the early 1970s that Japanese researchers succeeded. From then on, the mushroom became easily accessible to the average person.
Traditionally, there are six different kinds of mushroom do exist in the wild, but it seems that TCM practitioners prefer the red kind. Nowadays, the fungus is relatively popular with cancer patients.
