Reishi: The Wonder Mushroom
I started seeing an acupuncturist at 17 to combat chronic migraines, which turned out to be the byproduct of stress, lack of sleep, and a host of other teenage-angst related issues. In addition to her needle treatments, she would send me home each week with herbal tablets filled with powdered Reishi mushroom. At that time, I never inquired as to why these tablets could help, yet I noticed that when I was taking these wonder pills, I noticed considerable improvement in not only my headaches, but also in my moods, decreasing stress levels, reduced anxiety and more sound sleep. It was not until years later when I began to study Ayurveda and more actively learn about adaptogens and the power of fungi, that I revisited the Reishi mushroom. As it turns out, Reishi is oft referred to as the "queen healer mushroom" for all of its amazing healing qualities. Reishi ca be used for immune support, stress relief, longevity and a host of other benefits to the body and overall system. Additionally, Reishi is an adaptogen meaning that it works with the body overtime to increase the body's resistance to stress and literally adapt with the body as appropriate.
