Saw my acupuncturist for the last time this year in order to get some more pills (sleeping, hawthorne & fish oil), pick up my green tea bags & my month's worth of roots, etc. to boil. She recommended I try Ganoderma Lucidum pills for my autoimmune problems. I bought a box of 60 pills & went home to do some internet research. There were lots of sites with positive info (Chinese & Western medicines), plus other places I hadn't expected like Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. The pills are expensive (so are my other drugs) & I'll let you know of any developements as I start them tomorrow. Best wishes for a happy, healthy & peaceful 2006!
