Traditional and Modern Use
In Traditional Chinese Medicine, Coriolous is thought to replenish the Qi (vital energy), general enhancement of wellbeing, and to regulate as well as improve immune functions improving the health of those with chronic illnesses and weakened physiques. It was used to alleviate “dampness” which included a variety of pulmonary disorders, in fact Chinese medicine practitioners consider it essential for the treatment of infections and inflammation of the respiratory, urinary, and digestive tracts. It has also been demonstrated to have use against liver ailments including hepatitis B.
Western medicine is fundamentally different in its approach to treating ailments, where the chemical mechanisms and triggers of a disease are sought after and targeted instead of treating the patient’s well being as a whole. Although some of the uses of Coriolus do not appear to have a distinct mechanism, recent research has identified a compound known as Polysaccharide-K which exhibits impressive anti-cancer properties. It is shown to prevent mutations from carcinogens, radiation, and reduces the recurrence of cancer.
