Central to the treatment of Auto-Immune and other difficult to treat diseases in Chinese Medicine is the use of “medicinal mushrooms” such as Reishi (Ling Zhi), Cordyceps, Maitake, etc. These have been used in Chinese Medicine, in all its Asian variants–Japanese, Korean, Vietnames, Tibetan–to promote longevity and wellness, as well cure illness, since times immemorial.
In my practice I use them for treating Asthma, Autoimmune, Psoriasis, Eczema, Fatigue, Low Libido, Lung Weakness, Frequent Colds, High Cholesterol, even Insomnia. In China and Japan they use them to treat cancer; as some of the mushrooms have been shown to exhibit anti-tumor properties. One of my patients with Chronic Leukemia takes them under the advice of her oncologist!
Now you can grow your own. I have found a very fine company, from Olympia, Washington (naturally!) that sells everything you need to grow you own Mycorrhizal Fungi for your kitchen, your pharmacy, even your lawn and garden.
