The Power of Magic Mushrooms
It’s not what you’re thinking… Instead, these medicinal mushrooms have tremendous long-term benefits to your overall health and well being.
Traditional Chinese Medicine has a long history of incorporated mushrooms into its approach towards healing various ailments. More recently, scientists have had the opportunity to closely study and confirm the health benefits of nearly 300 species of mushroom known to possess therapeutic properties.
Perhaps the most striking benefits of these “magic mushrooms” are observed in their ability to strengthen the immune system. Healthy immune systems are central to how our bodies function overall. When our immunity is weakened, we are prone to suffering from any number of physical (and even psychological) malignancies including certain cancers (primarily those caused by viruses) and an exacerbation of autoimmune conditions, such as allergies.
Some of these mushrooms you may know and can find in your local grocery store, such as shiitake, which not only promotes healthy cell development, but also improves overall dental health. Others may be less familiar, like cordyceps, which supports liver and spleen functioning, as well as better respiratory health and an increase in vitality.
Many of these mushrooms are available in special supplements, especially as a five-mushroom blend. People’s Herbs offers a particularly high-grade product that incorporates the five most common therapeutic mushrooms: cordyceps, shiitake, coriolus, maitake, and reishi. This is a supplement that you can inquire more about or purchase at our clinic if you are interested.
As always, we recommend that you consult with your general health care provider, as well as our acupuncturist, regarding your current care regimen to determine whether adding any supplement would be of benefit to you.
