Mushrooms are having a moment in the spotlight. It is interesting for me as a clinician to see many of our ancient traditions and wisdoms become popular at the same time as Modern Technology permeates every part of our lives. It is like we already innately know that we need to have balance in order to stay centered in this fast paced world we live in.
Chaga, Reishi, Cordyceps and Lion’s Mane have been staples in eastern medicine for hundreds of years. Cultures from the forests of Finland to the rural countryside of China have incorporated mushrooms into their diets in both solid and liquid form for thousands of years. Thousands of studies have been conducted and papers written on mushrooms testifying their incredible properties.They are an integral part of ancient health wisdom in cultures across the world. Many say that mushrooms are the original superfood.
Mushrooms are now going mainstream and you can find them incorporated in cold brew coffee, energy bars and more.
