Hi Ted, Thank you for your previous answers. What are your thoughts on ganoderma? Having had issues with yeast and chronic cough for the past year, I am a bit apprehensive about trying it, but am hearing raves from others who have been using it for at least six months, daily. I understand it is from the mushroom family and fungi foods can enhance yeast problems. Am I correct in making that assumption? Big thanks. CVW

Do mushrooms that we eat cause fungus in our bodies? Thank you
Lions Mane are very unique medicinal mushrooms because they stimulate the production of nerve growth factor. NGF keeps nerve cells healthy and can repair nerve damage. I grow Lions Mane mushrooms and have made dual extracted tinctures that helped with my overall homeostasis, as well as feeling more "sharp" when it came to word recovery and sentence formation, like, not being at a loss for a word which was sometimes happening from time to time.
My hubby's nerve damage to his back is pretty much gone. He can sleep on his right side again, and I never hear him complain of pain in that location. I would add the tincture to a glass of juice in the morning. Always consider your source, and don't be scared to try your hand at growing them! They are quite simple to grow. You can find spores google root mushroom farm.
I have used Lion's Mane. I took it for memory support and while I found that it did help, it eventually got so expensive that I couldn't afford to buy it anymore. :( Supply and demand...*sighhhh*
I tried less expensive brands, but they were nowhere near as effective.
Hi, has anyone used lions mane mushroom?
Medicinal mushrooms are great for sinus infections and just about anything to do with your immune system. Took one dose of some my chiropractor sold me about 5 yrs ago and I was able to go from bed ridden to out clubbing that same night with some tiredness of course. Had friends in town so I felt obligated. Even after a night out, no drinking, I thought would at least feel worse from the smoke in the bar but as I woke up, I continually felt better. Now I have been taking two a day for all these years and have not had more than a tingle in my nose and no illnesses.
If I've been working in a smokey place, I use saline spray to help but I have not been sick with anything for all these years. I think it's building my immune system even when I'm in contact with a lot of people.
I recommend taking the blends of at least 5 to 10 or more. Not just one mushroom. I ran into a number of ordering problems between my store and online and was without for a month, also was around smoke again AND found a major mold issue in my new place. So... I got sick. Not nearly as bad as I used to though. I tried to prevent getting sick with Reishi tea, and bought the only blend I could find shitake/maitake but it just wasn't enough and I got a full blown sinus infection. Difference is back in the day I would be in bed unable to walk my dogs even, now I am fine, just unable to do yoga or go to work and I sleep a lot.
I finally got ahold of a medicinal mushroom blend with about 10 or more strains and I'm getting better. Makes me really appreciate how well they were working all these years. Highly recommend them!!!
In relation to medicinal mushrooms inquiry. I have found Ganoderma, also known as Reishi or Lingzhi to be extremely beneficial in making me feel more awake, invigorated, inspired and all around energized. I believe medicianl mushrooms have huge healing properties including Cordyceps, Maitake, Shiitake and others. Regarding Candida it's in my opinion that they support proper immune function therefore enabling the body to ward off the yeast and baf fungo and molds in the body.
