Ganoderma ?

I know it's been a long time since my last post but a woman at work who knows about my RA came to me yesterday with this tea, "Organic Green Tea with ganoderma lucidum" what is that? Well she said to take some time and do some research but that this Chinese herb may help me. So here in front of me I have 6 packets of tea to try. I am starting today. I googled the term and it said that this is a type of mushroom, and it is used in chinese medicine. I'm willing to try anything that's alternative. So I narrowed my search to Rheumatoid Arthritis and Ganoderma and found some interesting things!!

I want to here opinions, would you all try this? have you already tried this?

I need to make a rheumy appointment and see if he's heard of this herb.


  1. I would call a pharmacist first for drug interactions. Then, why not. Give it a try and see if it helps at all. I can't see how it would be detrimental to try something. Luck. T
