Hando - Rediscovering the essence of ancient cultures

HANDO® stands for traditional healing knowledge confirmed by scientific research.

The trading and distribution company HANDO® offers natural products of the highest quality, which originate from ancient healing cultures. Company founder and discoverer Karl-Heinz Dolinschek searches for “healing” and “sacred” plants of old, traditional cultures on his travels – with great commitment and a lot of pioneering spirit – and gets to the bottom of their beneficial effects using scientific methods.

The expertise of renowned scientists and universities is always obtained.

Here you can read the contributions of some of these experts that Karl- Heinz Dolinschek has invited to critique on his books.


Prof. Hademar Bankhofer on the
quality of HANDO® REISHI:

“On the international market there are always black sheep that dilute the effective active ingredients of the fruiting body with the grated woody stem of the mushroom. This is inferior goods that have no effect at all or only a diminished effect. That is why the Austrian, Karl-Heinz Dolinschek developed the HANDO® REISHI process: a process that guarantees controlled goods only from the fruiting body of REISHI. This exotic mushroom is a natural medicine against bronchitis, bronchial asthma, liver problems, arthritis, high blood pressure and menopausal symptoms. But what impresses me most is that this mushroom can help us to stay healthy – I consider this the primary task of the REISHI mushroom.” *)

Dr. Med. Yali Sui on the uses of REISHI in TCM:

“In TCM, Reishi is very often used to treat heart problems – whether coronary artery disease or arrhythmias. But also against restlessness and sleep disturbances, both of which come from the heart.

Reishi complements Xue, which circulates and nourishes the whole body. Reishi is also used against hyperlipidemia, after chemo or radiation treatment. Furthermore against chronic digestive problems of all kinds or as a protective function for the liver. As you can see, Reishi has a wide range of beneficial effects. They say it prolongs life.” *)

Mag. Pharm, Bernd Milenkovics on the effect of REISHI on the immune system:

“From the pharmacologist’s point of view, the Reihsi mushroom is a highly effective plant product which, due to its active ingredients, especially polysaccharides, triterpenes and organogermanium, obviously has a very strong effect on the immune system. I believe and everything indicates, that our aging process is very closely related to the immune system.

The immune system must be trained so that it remains efficient as far as possible into old age. Reishi will prepare it for all eventualities.” *)

Prof. Hademar Bankhofer on NOPAL:

“NOPAL is rich in many valuable active ingredients that make it interesting in the fight against high cholesterol. It is also effective against diabetes. Recently, European medicine has also become aware of this cactus. No doubt we will hear a lot more about this unusual medicinal plant in the next few years.” *)

Dr. Alberto Carlo Frati-Munari on his experience with NOPAL as an internist:

“It has been proven that taking prickly pear (Nopal) products before eating, over a period of at least 10 days, with plenty of fluids, leads to a reduction in body weight and thus to a decrease in cholesterol, glucose and insulin levels in the blood. It can also be used to prevent the risk of adult-onset diabetes.” *)

Prof. Mag. Pharm. Bernd Milenkovics on the healing effect of NOPAL:

“Its substances are very beneficial to the digestive system. Nopal also has an excellent effect on the glandular and nervous systems and also strengthens the immune system.” *)

Dr. Angelika Prentner on the possible uses of MACA:

Studies have shown that MACA can bring the hormonal system into balance, stimulating, invigorating, has a tonic and energizing effect. Besides its effect as an aphrodisiac and against sexual problems, it is also an immune system stimulant (…). I therefore believe that the effect of the tuber as a remedy is far more important than just a focus a sexual strength or the desire to have children. *)

Dr. Gloria Chacon de Popvici on the effects of the different coloured MACA tubers:

From the seeds of one plant you get roots of all shades of colour. This tells you that it is not the plant but the soil of the growing area that is primarily responsible for the colouring. The yellow tubers have a higher concentration of Vitamin A. The red ones are more anti-oxidant. The black ones have a higher content of potassium, iron, manganese and phosphorus. *)

Prof. Dr. Jürgen Spona on the effect of MACA amino acids:

„Amino acids have important individual effects that are reflected in the use of Maca to improve physical performance, such as fertility disorders, to improve the number and mobility of sperm, in use in erectile dysfunction and as an immune stimulant. Additionally, to establish hormonal balance and to relieve menopausal symptoms.”.
