My Personal Experience with Cordyceps Benefits on my Journey to Better Health and Wellness
Helped Heal My Lungs!
I learned to distrust doctors early on. After being told I would have to be on their Asthma medication for the rest of my life (since I wasn’t outgrowing it) I looked the doc in his eyes and told him he was wrong.
I was determined to free myself from their inhalers and medication which would give my lung symptoms temporary relief, only to shut them down even tighter. I felt hopeless at times. I began to turn to nature’s herbs and alternatives such as Ginger Root to dry up the mucous.
I was in and out of ER at hospitals, struggling for my breath for so long. Although I may be alive today because of western medicine, having double pneumonia at six months old, I hated the way the drugs made me feel.
I was amped out of my gourd and wanted to pass out from exhaustion and adrenal fatigue at the same time. Yet I was an athlete. Sometimes at the end of ski races or when I was really sick I thought I was going to die. I remember thinking, “It’s okay, I had a good life.”
While a common cold would last some people a week, for me it could be easily a month or more. My lung infections, coughing, mucous and inflammation was chronic. I wish I had Cordyceps shrooms for my lung, kidney and adrenal health then.
Since, I have traded my inhaler for this this magical mushroom which boosts ATP (energy) by up to 35% and is incredible at oxygenating the body. This is important especially in advance lung illness where the mucous gets ropey and smothers the alveoli at the ends of the lung tissue, inhibiting oxygen exchange. These are just some of the many medicinal mushroom benefits.
Medicinal Foods shrooms are the only ones in the world grown in a lab at low temperature and low oxygen to simulate the Tibetan Highlands where the wild version is currently overharvested. This strain was picked out of 400 different strains to be the highest in cordyceptin.
We can say it treats cancer in people’s beloved pets but not allowed to say so for humans. It’s such a powerful lung and adrenal tonic and is so oxygenating that it helped me go from tight inflamed mucus-filled lungs to being able to free dive and spearfish over 100 feet- on one breath.
I highly suggest it as a crucial part of anyone’s immunity building apothecary. The immune-building polysaccharides and beta glucan levels are off the charts in this mushroom!
NOTE: this is just a piece of my wellness puzzle and nothing can substitute for a full lifestyle transformation which is often needed when dealing with chronic illness.
