    Wink ABM Mushroom Extract is a Very Powerful Medicine (Fights Cancer)

    Interesting Mushroom Indeed Here Peeps. Looks highly promising. And worth a looksy. Sorry if it was posted before. If so couldn't hurt to Merge or Bump.

    In the sixties, researchers visited the Sao Paulo, Brazil, area and discovered the longevity rate was disproportionately high. The people were very healthy and living well beyond 100 years. Their secret was the simple ABM mushroom, Agaricus Blazei Murill.

    The ABM mushroom is the strongest of the medicinal mushrooms. It is chock full of beta glucans, linoleic acid, vitamins (especially vitamin D), minerals, antioxidants, amino acids, digestive enzymes – a total of 192 nutrients which make it a very strong adaptogen to bring the body into homeostasis.

    ABM mushroom extract is used to regulate the immune system and promote natural mechanisms to battle infectious disease and cancers. Most of the research on it has been done on cancer. ABM stimulates lymphocyte T-cell and helper T-cell production, and stimulates NK (Natural Killer) cell activity. The polysaccharides contained in ABM stimulate production of interferon and interleukin that indirectly function to destroy and prevent the proliferation of cancer cells. Additionally, ABM is a very powerful antiviral, antibacterial, and antifungal agent.

    Japanese studies showed ABM to be 80% more effective than Japan's best selling anticancer medicine, PSK. It contains much higher levels of nutrients and immune system regulators than Maitake, Shiitake, and Reishi mushrooms.


    ABM is a welcome adjunct to alternative cancer treatment because it supports the liver which has a big detoxification job to do during chemotherapy. Its nutritional support offsets cachexia, the loss of weight and muscle that debilitated cancer patients experience.

    Don't be fooled by cheaper imitations. The Japanese tried to grow this mushroom, the Chinese tried, but it does not do well out of its native environment; it loses its potency. Mushrooms from polluted lands concentrate heavy metals. Top notch, ABM mushrooms for medicinal use grow best in the sunny, unpolluted landscape of the Brazilian rainforest. The resulting extract is not inexpensive because demand outstrips supply, and it is labor intensive.

    "Once the mushrooms pop out of the ground, you have about three hours to pick them," said Kristina Okuda, the sole importer of organic Brazilian ABM mushroom extract in Arizona. "If the caps start to flip, they are useless. You have to pick them quickly, and air dry them. If you freeze dry them, you kill the polysaccharides. The extract must be preserved in an alcoholic tincture, not glycerin."

    Okuda grew up in Brazil and established a relationship with a trusted grower about six years ago after she wanted the extract for herself to treat her ovarian cancer. "I've since dealt with quite a few stage 4 cancer people whom the regular docs had given up on," she said. "The mushroom activates their immune system and revives them; then they can do Insulin Potentiation Therapy (IPT) or other cancer treatments."

    ABM mushroom extract is an organic whole food. It is also used with autoimmune diseases because it is an immune system modulator, meaning it will tone down an over active immune system.

    Mushrooms can definitely be powerful immunomodulators if the right extracts and fractions can be isolated. AHCC - a powerful immune booster and cancer fighter has a ton of successful human trials behind it: http://ahccresearch.com/

    I have not heard of ABM mushrooms before; I'll check with the research department and see what they can dig up.

    Not to hijack my own thread but staying in topic, here's a great site with some stunning eye opening alternative cancer treatments. Such as Iscador, Vitamin C Intravenous, The Famous Essiac Formula, Graviola, Edgar Cayce's Formula as well as Hoxseys Formula etc etc...... Good Stuff: Makes a great bookmark IMO.

    http://www.mnwelldir.org/docs/cancer1/altthrpy2.htm


    Good read here:
    Here is the original Hoxsey Formula:

    Glycyrrhiza glabra, 12 g. (Licorice Root)
    Trifolium pratense, 12 g. (Red Clover)
    Arctium lappa, 6 g. (Burdock Root)
    Stillingia sylvatica (toxic), 6 g. (Stillingia Root)
    Berberis aquifolium, 6 g. (Oregon Grape)
    Phytolacca decandra (toxic), 6 g. (Pokeweed)
    Rhamnus purshiana, 3 g. (Cascara)
    Rhamnus frangula (toxic), 3 g. (Glossy buckthorn)
    Xanthoxylum americanum, 3 g. (Prickly ash)

    Combine the dry herbs, place in 3 cups of water and simmer for 10-15 minutes. Cool, strain and store in a dark glass jar.

    How to use: 2-4 tbsp. tea in a third cup water adding 1-2 drops of saturated potassium iodide and 5-11 drops strong iodine (Lugol's) solution. Take q.i.d. (four times a day), p.c. (after meals) and before bed. [Natural College of Natural Medicine Pharmacy]

    There are some problems with the story, though. Harry Hoxsey’s family was originally from Illinois. How his grandfather’s horse found the licorice root, Oregon grape, and cascara while grazing isn’t explained, not is it feasible since licorice comes from the middle east, the Oregon grape is an evergreen shrub found in Oregon and Northern California, and Cascara is found in California west to Montana.

    I’ve owned horses. I’ve never seen a horse dig up a root. A few of the ingredients are roots.

    There are a few people who believe that Hoxsey got his formula from two readings by Edgar Cayce. However, Cayce’s formula has only three of the nine herbs listed above, two more (Wild Cherry Bark and Yellow Dock root) herbs that Hoxsey’s formula doesn’t, and both add iodine to their formulas.

    Here is Cayce’s formula:

    Fluid Extract of Stillingia, 1/2 ounce,
    Fluid Extract of Poke Root, 1/2 ounce,
    Fluid Extract of Burdock Root, 1/2 ounce,
    Fluid Extract of Yellow Dock Root, 1/2 ounce,
    Iodide of Potassium, 3 drams.
    Sufficient simple syrup to make 8 ounces.
    Shake solution well together.

    The Cayce readings were given in September of 1924. Hoxsey came out with his formula shortly after that, but still this doesn’t answer how Hoxsey came up with his formula. Some have suggested that Hoxsey got the formula from Native American cancer therapies, but again, we’ll probably never know. All we can be sure of is that the original story is a myth, like the myth of George Washington and the cherry tree.

    Though the American Cancer Society, the Golden Calf of charities that has done absolutely nothing to end cancer, has stated that “...There is no evidence that the Hoxsey herbal treatment has any value in the treatment of cancer in humans,” near the turn of this century, medical historian Patricia Ward found that six of the nine Hoxsey herbs demonstrated either anti-tumor or immune enhancing activity. Was Hoxsey’s formula successful?

    Harry Hoxsey had been a coal miner. In the 1920s he suddenly began curing cancer. The AMA was just beginning to rule medicine with an iron fist. The man who ruled the AMA was Morris Fishbein. Fishbein, supposedly a doctor, but even that is questionable, dogged Hoxsey for practicing medicine without a license and Hoxsey opened and closed some seventeen clinics in about ten years. In 1936 he opened a clinic in Dallas, Texas. This humble clinic grew to become the largest privately owned cancer clinic in the world at that time. To avoid being arrested for practicing medicine without a license, the clinic was staffed with licensed physicians and nurses.

    In the fifties, Hoxsey was grossing 1.5 million dollars, treating over 8,000 patients a year. This was definitely cutting into the profits of conventional medicine, so the AMA (run by Fishbein), the FDA, and the NCI all ganged up on Hoxsey and tried to put him out of business.

    Hoxsey fought back and sued the Journal of American Medicine for libel after an article had called him a fraud. Hoxsey won the case, but was awarded one dollar. The FDA then reviewed some 400 cases and determined that many did not have cancer and the rest had already had conventional treatments that had cured their cancer, so they concluded that no one had benefited from the Hoxsey therapy.

    The US Government banned the sale of Hoxsey’s formula in 1960 and Hoxsey was forced to move his clinic to Mexico, where it still runs today.


    The ACS, NCI, Sloan Kettering, FDA all claim that the Hoxsey formula is worthless, however, on his death bead, Morris Fishbein admitted that’s he’d lied about the formula and that it had shown promise.

    Interestingly enough, one of the board members of the AMA who fought to close him down, ended up a patient at one of Hoxsey's clinics while Hoxsey was sitting in a jail cell.

    Hello Siblings,

    This post seems to be quoting marketing bullsh*t.

    This mushroom is a stranger to the two main longevity sites:
    Longecity.org have no listings for this mushroom.
    lef.org list this as an option for complementary or alternative
    cancer therapies. Their listing goes back to 2008.

    Nowhere is this mushroom mentioned in regard to longevity
    and that's despite it being known since 2008 at the latest.

    This smells like the same pack of lies that were told for Acai berries.
    They said, 10 years ago, that Acai berries helped the native
    indians to live beyond 100 years and look only half their age.
    And their exceptional vitality and youthfulness was down to the
    special properties of the Acai berries..... yada yada yada

    Demand for Acai berries soared. It was all lies.

    This paragraph below, is clearly marketing bullsh*t.
    It's saying, don't buy their product, buy ours.

    It might be.

    But if you look at other medicinal mushroom success stories, such as the verified human trails of AHCC ... (info linked in my post above)
    "The world's most researched specialty immune supplement supported by 20 human clinical studies, by over 30 papers published in PubMed-indexed journals and by more than 100 pre-clinical and in vitro studies.

    Japan's leading alternative cancer therapy used in hundreds of cancer clinics throughout Asia.

    Highly effective immuno-modulator used in over 700 clinics as a standard preventative regiment for all incoming patient to reduce the risk of hospital infections.

    "The daily immune supplement of tens of thousands of healthy people in Japan and worldwide, seeking to help their bodies to fight the formation of abnormal cells, whose growth can lead to cancer, chronic disease and infections (such as the influenza / flu virus)."
    ... then one might consider that various mushrooms may have these qualities locked within them. As I said, I will ask my research department at work (very serious and scientific individuals that scour any and all peer reviewed research, and aware enough to observe scams such as on the order of Policosanol; they are a good bunch to see if any good research exists on ABM.

    Mushrooms do seem to have some interesting qualities for assisting human health, and I won't write anything off until I can see if any proper trials exist, and what the results are. Keep in mind that just because there may be no trials behind something doesn't mean it is bunk (trials are very expensive), and, just because something has a few trials behind it, doesn't mean that other researchers can replicate the results (indicating shiftiness), as was the case with policosanol.

    If I find anything interesting in either direction, I'll post it here. After all, we are all about getting to the truth of things!

    Default Re: ABM Mushroom Extract is a Very Powerful Medicine (Fights Cancer)

    Ok, I heard back from my research group and ABM mushrooms definitely do look promising for immunomodulation, regardless of whether one article linked to above was written a bit like an advert. There are very limited human studies with ABM, but the smaller studies done with it point to effectiveness. Larger scale human trials need to be done to assert exactly how well it works. Like with most medicinal mushrooms, the exact mechanisms of action are not fully understood.

    Here is additional, and much more scientific, reading on ABM:
