Black Fungus to lower Cholesterol levels

Black Fungus

Black fungus kills bad cholesterol, dechokes blocked arteries and lowers high blood pressure!
The Chinese have centuries been eating this fungus. And their acute observations tell and give them a lot of medical information which our present scientists would scoff at because it is not scientificall based and just because it comes from the East. We have to learn to be open minded and discerning and be cautious but not dismissive of all things Chinese or Eastern. 
After the Drug companies all have vested interest in selling their products and not tell you the truth. They have been found wanting about telling us the harmful side effects in some instances.
-----Black Fungus

Case 1

Dried black fungus
Today I went to TTSH for follow up eye check after they found (6 weeks ago) that I have clots in the some of the veins in my right eye.

The eye consultant was surprised and very glad that the clots in the veins have all cleared and gave me a follow up appointment 3 months later.

I told him that I have been taking black fungus (Mok Yee in Cantonese) for 6 weeks which he personally accepts under  "holistic medicine".

I also gave him an exercise disc which I brought back from Guangzhou which he was very happy to receive as he lacks exercise and his cholesterol is also high.

Case 2

Dried black fungus
A herbal treatment for High Blood cholesterol

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. I had been consuming a lot of red meat and lamb recently.

After consuming Mok Yee 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.


I immediately followed an advice of a friend who told me about Black fungus (Mok Yee). He had four blocked 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 Mok Yee daily.

After consuming boiled Mok Yee 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 Mok Yee 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 info. claims that Mok Yee reduces blood clot, preventing thrombosis, atherosclerosis and coronary heart disease, and cancer.

Black Fungus contains abundant proteins, ferric iron, calcium, vitamins, rough fibre; the content of protein is equal to meat.

4) Put 2-3 slices of ginger, 8-10 red dates, 20 kay-chee (wolf berry) into crock pot.
5) Bring to boil for 8 hours. One and a half bowls of Mok Yee soup will remain after boiling overnight.     
6) Eat black fungus and drink the soup.

You may consume for 10 to 14 days according to the severity of the problem.

For those with low blood pressure consume less or only for alternate days.

Drink Mok Yee first thing in the morning with an 'empty stomach'.

Consume at least one large bowl.

Take breakfast 2 hours later.

Side effects - you may feel a little tired after 3- 4 days.

Consume multivitamins and fresh fruits and vegetables daily.

Do not eat oily or fried foods during this period.

Cholesterol medication is man-made and may harm the liver.
Mok Yee is a plant and does not seem to contain chemicals that harm the body.

Take blood test for blood cholesterol before and after treatment and study the results!

Natural remedies for high cholesterol

High blood cholesterol is a very common condition mainly due to our unhealthy diet.

It is not a disease but a negative health condition that may contribute to many forms of diseases, especially cardiovascular diseases.

This article is mainly on how to reduce high cholesterol, and not about cholesterol.

High cholesterol is defined as a measurement greater than 200 mg/dL.

LDL cholesterol levels greater than 130 mg/dL and HDL cholesterol levels less than 60 mg/dL are considered high.

So much for the technical measurement.

There are numerous natural foods that can reduce high cholesterol.
Below are five such foods:

1. Oatmeal or oats
2. Eggplant or aubergine. Also known as brinjal
3. Black beans
4. Corn
5. Enoki mushroom. Those little Japanese needle mushroom with tiny white caps.

However, the most potent one for reducing high blood cholesterol is the black fungus.

What is black fungus?

Dried black fungus
The technical name for black fungus is Auricularia polytricha or Hirneola polytricha. What a mouthful!

It is also known by other equally interesting names: cloud ear; tree ear; wood fungus, ear fungus, mouse ear, and jelly mushroom.The Chinese call it “yun er” which means “cloud ear.” Let us just call it Black Fungus.

Black fungus is usually sold in dried form. There are actually two types of black fungus. The very thick one and the smaller flakey variety. Here we are referring to the thick black fungus.

It measures around 5 to 8 cm (2 to 3 inches) and is black on one side and grey on the other.
Black fungus is very popular in Chinese cuisine.

Although tasteless by itself, when cooked with other ingredients, it absorbed the flavor while maintaining its crunchiness. Black fungus is used in Chinese herbal medication to increase blood fluidity and improve blood circulation. Black fungus can reduce high blood cholesterol.

Medicinal uses:

Black fungus has a reputation in Chinese herbal medicine for increasing the fluidity of the blood and improving circulation. It is given to patients who suffer from atherosclerosis.

Western medicine is now investigating centuries-old claims made by Eastern sages and finding them surprisingly accurate.
