Mushroom Magic

The use of mushrooms in a therapeutic capacity dates back thousands of years across many cultures throughout the world including Europe, China and Japan. In fact the same mushrooms that are recorded in Ancient Chinese herbal texts from 200AD are still in use today.

Medicinal mushrooms contain many biologically active compounds which can positively enhance our wellness. However of these compounds, the polysaccharide (in particular beta-glucans) are the most widespread and appear to be the most important therapeutically, with particular respect to their positive effect on our immune system.

The Magic of Medicinal mushrooms

Medicinal mushrooms help support your immune system on a number of levels.
Some of the most popular traditional medicinal mushrooms include Shiitake (Lentinula edodes), Reiishi (Ganoderma lucidum), Cordyceps sinensis (caterpillar mushroom), Snow fungus and Turkey tail (Trametes versicolor), Maitake (Grifola frondosa) which contain antioxidants, essential minerals selenium and copper, vitamin D, B vitamins and fibre.

Medicinal Mushrooms are used in our treatment protocols to:

  • support healthy immune system functioning by strengthening the body’s defences
  • relieve the symptoms of colds and mild upper respiratory tract infections
  • strengthen the lungs for the relief of coughs and help to resolve phlegm
  • help increase energy and resistance to stress due to fatigue
  • to support you in times of chronic immune conditions

Is your immune system unhappy?

Signs of an unhappy immune system include decreased resistance to bacterial, fungal and viral infections, prolonged recovery after illness and a feeling of being tired and run down. There are many factors that can influence the health of your immune system: excessive consumption of simple sugars, processed foods or alcohol, environmental toxins and pollutants, certain medications or pre-existing health conditions and gastrointestinal disturbances to name a few.
