Medicinal Mushrooms (Reishi!) & Immune Intelligence

September 27, 2018

Mushrooms & Immunity Intelligence Author: Lily Mazzarella
Designed for discernment (self/other, threat/benign stimulus), the immune system can become confused in this crazy world of ours.  Chronic stress, pathogens, fractionated foods, heightened climate conditions, chemicals in the environment all present the immune system with overwhelming amounts of information.  And under the arc of stress chemicals like cortisol and adrenaline, immune responses can become skewed.  You might experience under-functioning of the immune system & get sick more frequently, or have a tough time recovering.  You might experience overactivity--heightened vigilance--& develop new sensitivities and allergies to our foods & environment.  Or, because the immune system hasn’t read the textbook, both 
😉. 

Enter medicinal mushrooms.  Take, for example, Reishi mushroom.  Reishi is tree medicine for the modern condition.  It is amphoteric (balancing) to immune function, and is used for both deficiency states (think, cancer, chronic viruses like herpes and EBV) and allergies and autoimmunity.  Reishi is potently anti-inflammatory, AND can encourage efficient and appropriate inflammation, which is the basis of immune system scavenging and infection resolution.  It can help your cold sores AND your allergies to leaf litter. 

In the as-yet-unwritten book about herbs that have saved my life, Reishi would be the first entry.  It was my guide through quitting smoking over 15 years ago, and supported my nervous system, adrenals, and lungs while I recovered from that addiction.  It has done more for my insomnia than any other herb, and has helped my body thrive in the midst of chronic viruses. 

As a hard-bodied polypore, Reishi’s medicinal magic needs to be extracted to be available to our bodies.  That’s why Radical Immune Powder and Reishi Roast (and all our Reishi-containing herbal tinctures) are all formulated with Reishi fruiting body extracts.  The mushrooms have been pre-extracted so that all the goodness is immediately available to your body, and doesn’t require simmering for hours.  Radical Immune powder + hot cashew milk + a few drops stevia + collagen>>>>YUM!!

Yes, this dries up poison oak.

I tried it after the rash did not go away for 2 weeks. It rapidly retreated, and gone.

LOVE!

Tried the lavender moisture cream this morning and it went on so beautifully, easy and almost satin-like. My face feels so nourished, soft it feels so good. Best moisturizer I have applied in a very long time.

Astaxanthin

This is my first time trying this product, and because I am taking it for inflammatory joint pain, I have seen some definite alleviation of my discomfort since I started taking it over a week ago. I am also taking it with Tumeric and Resveratrol (all three formulas twice a day), so I am not sure weather my relief is totally due to the Astaxanthin or the combination of herbs. Still I will continue along this path, since it is very much helping my hips and lower back. I would recommend others give it a try and if needed add the two additional anti-inflammatory combinations. I find it a better alternative to NSAIDs and other meds that cause gastric issues.

NERVE BALM IS AWESOME!!

NERVE BALM IS THE BEST PRODUCT THAT I HAVE FOUND TO WORK ON MY NEUROPATHIC PAIN AND I AM GLAD MY CHIRPRACTOR INTRODUCED TO ME THIS PRODUCT. THANK YOU.
