The Healing Powers of Reishi Mushrooms

After learning about our dog’s cancer earlier this month, my husband and I began doing tons of research on cancer fighting foods. We completely changed Desmond’s diet and at the same time made some changes in our own diets.

On top of eating clean and organic foods we started looking into supplements. Did you know the Reishi Mushrooms have been used for thousands of years in the Chinese culture and are used for various healing abilities? Reishi mushrooms have strong anti-inflammatory properties and are tied to better immune function and mental clarity. (yes please!)

Time and time again studies have  shown that reishi mushrooms have antioxidant abilities that allow them to strengthen the body’s defenses against cancer, autoimmune diseases, heart disease, allergies, infections and more.

I suffer from Crohn’s disease which is an autoimmune disease. Fighting my doggie’s cancer and my intestinal issues all at once!

Reishi can do so much for your body and compared to many medications they’re non-toxic and produce hardly any side effects. Most people notice a quick improvement in their energy levels, mental capabilities and moods while also experiencing a reduction in aches, pains, allergies, digestive issues and infections shortly after consuming. Did I mention they are also tasty?

There are different ways of getting these mushrooms into your system, I typically take 1 supplement a day (You can order them on Amazon) or as a side dish I will lightly sauté them in coconut oil with salt and pepper for dinner. If you are not trying to take another pill consider adding them into your diet on a weekly basis.
