I received an email from Dr. Norm Shealy yesterday and it had some interesting information about mushrooms that I want to share with you today.
First, if you don’t know who Dr. Shealy is, you can check out his website to find out more about him. For our purposes, he is a doctor and he is very critical of the FDA and the mega drug companies.
Anyway, his email yesterday was promoting a book called Mycelium Running by Paul Stamets, a book about how mushrooms can deal with a lot of the toxicity problems that we have today, both inside and outside of the body. I haven’t read the book yet but I am considering ordering it. If you decide to check it out, go to Amazon because it is an expensive book and Amazon makes it almost affordable. The print version is less expensive than the Kindle version too.
So, what I wanted to share was a few of the facts that Dr. Shealy shared about mushrooms.
Talking about edible mushrooms, “some have excellent immune enhancing properties such as Cordyceps, shitake, and Ganoderma.” Ganoderma is another name for Reishi mushrooms.
He also says that “the broadest spectrum of anticancer properties is found in Ganoderma lucidum (Reishi) followed closely by Cordicepe sinensis and Lentinula edodes (Shitake).”
I get my mushrooms from Nikken’s Kenzen Immunity (or Kenzen 14 Mushroom Complex as it is called in Canada). It contains the three mushrooms mentioned by Dr. Shealy as well as 11 other mushrooms known to support the immune system. Now, I’m not a doctor like Dr. Shealy and I cannot tell you that this will cure cancer and or anything like that. And as a supplement, Kenzen Immunity is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease. If you believe you may have a medical condition then please see a doctor.
