Ganoderma spores

This is in response to the key words: “Bell’s palsy and ganoderma spores”

There is a multilevel sales organization that sells several products all involving the Ganoderma lucidum. One of the products is a mixture of green tea and Ganoderma powder. Another product is a mixture of coffee and Ganoderma powder. A third product is a capsule containing powdered Ganoderma lucidum and Ganoderma spores.

The toxins in poison mushrooms do affect the nervous system and the muscles. However, Ganoderma lucidum mushrooms are very large and rather ugly mushrooms that grow in shady places hidden by dead tree trunks. They come in simple and uniform colors of black and red. They do not have any spots. The Ganoderma mushrooms and their spores have not been known to be toxic in anyway since some 3,000 years ago when the Chinese began to use them as a general health food like ginseng, pseudoginseng (Siberian ginseng), garlic and ginger.

The cause of Bell’s palsy is still unknown. Only the cause of the condition is known, such as lock jaw, facial nerve paralysis, etc. It is also known that extreme anger triggers cerebral microstrokes and ministrokes and can lead to a Bell’s palsy condition. The combination of two popular prescription medications for diabetes and high blood pressure taken daily for two years will lead to right facial droop in the morning. However, the combination has not been shown to lead to a Bell’s palsy condition. The duration of Bell’s palsy is much longer than a facial droop caused by that combination of prescription medications. This type of facial droop occurs in sleep and remains for about half an hour after the person awakes. After about half an hour, the facial droop seems to disappear and the facial muscles return to normal. Bell’s palsy seems to linger on for a much longer time.
