For millennia, mushrooms have been recognised by many cultures across the world for their medicinal properties - from deep in the tropics to the high reaches of the Arctic circle. Now more than ever our immune systems are in need of support from the presence of damaging pollutants and pathogens that now pervade our environments and threaten our health.
In this special IMMUNITY edition of Mushroom Medicine, you will dive deep with David Satori into the natural history and pharmacology of several top medicinal mushroom species, learning the best ways to make mushrooms part of your daily health practices. Our exploration will cover (but won’t be limited to) turkey tail, reishi, cordyceps, and birch polypore, just to name a few.
Recently, a renewed interest in natural, sustainable ways of keeping our bodies healthy has blossomed across society, and the importance of robust immune health has never been as pertinent in recent history as it is now. Thankfully, the findings of modern science and ancient traditions converge on medicinal mushrooms, which have shown marvellous potential in helping us build strong immune systems.
Sustainability and conservation are amongst the top core values here at Myceliate, so our exploration will be infused with discussions of how to harvest responsibly from the wild, and how to seek out the most eco-conscientious mushroom cultivators around you.
