treatment for high cholesterol (Reduction Blood Platelets )
I want to share a secret for treating high cholesterol. Three weeks ago l went for a cholesterol check. To my surprise, it was above the normal range which should be less than 5.2 mmol/L.
My reading obtained was 6.6 mmol/L. I had been consuming a lot of red meat and lamb recently. After consuming Black Fungus for two weeks, l had my cholesterol checked again and found that my cholesterol level fell to 4.70 mmol/L My pharmacist said that even cholesterol medication will need 1- 3 months to take effect. She was very surprised and said it is a miracle.
Review: I immediately followed an advice of a friend who told me about Black Fungus (黑木耳- Black Fungus). He had four block heart arteries, over 90 percent blocked. His cardiologist advised him to go for bypass surgery, failing which he would suffer an imminent heart attack. His sinseh (Chinese physician) friend advised him against surgery as the procedure would be messy, painful and expensive. He followed the advice of his sinseh friend by consuming Black Fungus daily. After consuming boiled Black Fungus juice for 40 days, he went for an angiogram. His heart specialist was surprised and shocked that his arteries were all cleared of any blockage and it would not be necessary to see him for another 10 years! My observation is that Black Fungus juice is not only effective in treating high blood cholesterol but also helps to bring relief to joint paints, arthritis and poor blood circulation. The internet information claims that Black Fungus reduces blood clot, preventing thrombosis, atherosclerosis and coronary heart disease and cancer. Black Fungus contains abundant protein, ferric, calcium, vitamin, rough fiber, the content of protein is equal to meat. 黑木耳Black Fungus (Cloud Ears) (fresh and dried)

Hi wj2010,

Good day.

I was searching on the internet for treatments for atherosclerosis (blocked artery). I have a friend who is currently seeing a cardiologist because he is experiencing some chest pains. He will go further test, one of them is angiogaphy/angiogram.

He is quite young at 29 years old but slightly overweight, have type 2 diabetes and smoked cigarettes. I already advised him many times about this ill habits.

I have a habit of always getting ahead and being prepared. I have learned that angiogram test is very expensive, more so the catheterization (angioplasty) treatment for blocked arteries. My friend is quite poor. He has no job right now because no company would accept a diabetic employee. He is currently breeding dogs to earn some money.

On your article, I am quite amazed at the results of eating "boiled Black Fungus juice for 40 days". Please asked him how he cooks it. For example:

1. How long is it boiled?
2. How many times a day and at what quantities of fungus and water?
2. Do we eat the all black fungus and drink all the liquid?
3. Is okay to cook it together with other food items like a fish soup perhaps?

My chinese mother would sometimes cook soup with black fungus and insist on its health benefits. Educated in a modern society, i was not convinced about it til i have read some good feedback about its medicinal properties in the internet. I hope western medicine studies black fungus further so that many people will benefit from its medicinal properties.

Hoping for your reply soon. Thank you very much.

Common ingredient in a lot of Chinese dishes and is available in Chinese markets and Carrefour/Walmart as well. It's eaten "liang ban" in a lot of sichuan or hunan restaurants. It's also often used sliced in hot & sour soup or mushu dishes.

It's also called wood ear fungus in English since it grows on wood and is shaped somewhat like an ear.

It has a crunchy texture even when cooked, kind of like jellyfish. It doesn't have much flavor by itself but soaks up the flavors of what you cook it with.

black fungus may not suit everyone, due to the body conditions.

My wife loves mu er like nothing else. I neither like, nor dislike it. It's probably an acquired taste for most western palates.

Typically it is fried with vegetables, egg, meat, or added to a soup. As said above, it has no taste of its own. Make sure you soak it for a while, and wash it thoroughly before cooking. Also, cut off the stem.

I've also seen this stuff translated as "Jew's Ear." Apparently this was the old name of the wood ear mushroom. In C-Store they were selling a can of juice called The Jew's Ear Juice. Check it out, it's in a silver can and tastes about as good as it sounds.

Tried the packaged dried fungus for the first time today. After cooking the way I usually do, with the fresh ones, it came out the same, although took longer because the fungus has to be soaked before cooking.

As far as I am aware, Jews Ear is not the same as tree/黑木耳 fungus?

These mushrooms are quite tasty actual. My only worry is, with China being China, the heavy metal content. Mushrooms in general accumulate heavy metals, specially the slower growing ones that grow on wood. With the high level of heavy metals pollution here, you can't be careful enough

There is such a thing as being too careful. Unnecessary stress can be more harmful to your health than pollution. You're going to die anyway, it's just a matter of time. Sit back, enjoy the ride, and eat your black fungus man!

Yeah, but why should I knowingly shorten that time?

I look forward to reading the results of rigorous scientific studies proving/disproving the supposed miraculous health benefits of black fungus.
