Mesothelioma Patient Cures Self with Mushroom Extract

A 73-year old malignant pleural mesothelioma patient in Japan has demonstrated that alternative therapies can result in the complete disappearance of a mesothelioma tumor. The patient took a mushroom extract as well as alternative parasympathetic nerve stimulation therapy. The complete disappearance of the tumor was found at the 29-month follow-up.

In September 2003 the patient underwent a cytoreduction pleurectomy, instead of an extrapleural pneumonectomy, due to the aggressiveness of the tumor. By May 2004 the patient was in poor condition, however, he refused continuance of chemotherapy and radiation treatments.

The patient instead began taking a mushroom extract containing Agaricus blazei Murill Kyowa (ABMK) in addition to alternative parasympathetic nerve stimulation therapy. The nerve stimulation is a modified acupuncture treatment that has shown immune system improvement. Four months after the start of the alternative treatments the tumor began to decrease. Over the next two years the tumor completely disappeared.

ABMK is an edible mushroom that has been used in other countries to treat a variety of diseases including cancer. It has been reported to inhibit tumor growth through both anti-angiogenic and immune-modulatory activity.
