Polyporus umbellatus

Lumpy bracket (also called umbrella polypore) – In animals, the polyporus (calibration hare) helps with bladder and kidney stones, eczema, oedema and cysts.

Polyporus grows in native oak and beech forests near tree trunks. It is not very common in this
country. Since it spoils very easily after harvesting, it is not well suited as a edible mushroom.

The Polyporus is mainly used for drainage, for water retention (edema).

Its dehydrating effect is just as strong as with drainage tablets, but without excreting valuable
potassium. This makes it a valuable fungus for pulmonary emphysema, pulmonary edema and heart
failure. Its ingestion leads to increased urine and sodium excretion, which relieves the heart.

The Polyporus supports the lymph in the elimination of waste products. Its detoxifying effect
improves the appearance of the skin and the skin structure in allergic skin diseases.

The polyporus supports the lymph in cases of joint swelling and dropsy and has a draining effect.

The function of the lymphatic system is of particular importance in cancer diseases, as more toxins
have to be transported out of the body. It inhibits the formation of metastases via the lymphatic
system and has tumour-inhibiting properties in lung and liver cancer.
