  30. 30. SOME PEOPLE SAY THAT LINGZHI IS NOT SUITABLE FOR EVERYONE  The misconception that “Lingzhi is not for everyone” comes about because some consumers of Lingzhi were not properly briefed on what to expect after consuming Lingzhi, and mistaken the Vertigo Reactions as a negative reaction.  In fact Vertigo Reactions are a positive indication that the Lingzhi is taking effect in the body.  Lingzhi can be consumed by everyone.  Pregnant ladies, new born, elderly have consumed Lingzhi and found it very beneficial

  34. 34. LINGZHI IS TOO EXPENSIVE  In today’s living environment, it is not cheap to have and maintain good health.  Visits to clinics and specialists are expensive.  However when one is diagnosed with degenerative diseases like diabetes, high blood pressure, heart problem kidney malfunction etc, long-term medication which is needed for the whole life is not cheap either.  Thus, if Lingzhi can help promote good health and delay the onset of degenerative diseases, hen it is not expensive.  If one prescribes to the philosophy of “Prevention is better than Cure”, then one will find Shuang Hor Lingzhi inexpensive because of its health promoting capabilities.

  36. 36. I AM HEALTHY SO THERE IS NOT NEED FOR ME TO CONSUME LINGZHI  A person may feel that he is healthy, however he may not be sure that his body is free of toxins.  The colon, skin, kidney/ bladder, lymph and lungs are the 5 major elimination channels, which help expel body toxins and wastes.  If one of the elimination channels in our body is not functioning well, the other channels are forced to compensate.  If they are unable to handle the overload, the toxins and wastes find their way back into the bloodstream circulating throughout the body and settling in the weakest organ and tissue areas.
  37. 37. I AM HEALTHY SO THERE IS NOT NEED FOR ME TO CONSUME LINGZHI  Toxicity in the body lays the groundwork for diseases. Of course the accumulation of toxins, which can cause injury to the cells, tissues or organs, does not happen overnight.  It takes many years before any symptoms of diseases can be seen of felt.  Taking Shuang Hor Lingzhi daily is assurance that toxins are being expelled from our body, making way for our cells to regenerate to promote better metabolic activities.  Shuang Hor Lingzhi is not meant only for the sick.
