In brief: Yes. many good ones

As dr. Strickland answered, ganoderma (resihi) is excellent.
So are other medicinal mushrooms including cordyceps. Astragalus has been shown to reduce chemotherapy side effects, as have many others.

In brief: Ganoderma

There are many but my favorite is ganoderma (reishi).
Over 600 studies at national library of medicine and many show that cancer patients taking this had fewer side effects of treatment, lived longer and had less recurrence of cancer following treatment. This would be my pick in large quantity. Check out www.Docshealthycoffee.Com for a unique delivery method for this wonderful herb.
