As I said in my previous post, Dr. Amber Passini prescribed a mushroom supplement for me during my cancer journey. Some people love to eat mushrooms, and some detest the taste and slivery feel. Never fear. There are many ways to add mushrooms to your diet without tasting them. You can take them as a supplement, buy them as a powder to be mixed into smoothies, or you can choose to eat mushrooms daily by adding them to soups, salads, and casseroles.
Dr. Robert Elliott, the medical researcher and oncologist who wrote valuable commentary in my book, “Unleash Your God-Given Healing,” recommended mushroom supplements to his cancer patients. But mushrooms are powerful in more than just fighting cancer. They can also help to modulate the immune system, provide antioxidants, reduce inflammation, and lower blood glucose, blood pressure, cholesterol, and triglyceride levels without side effects to the liver or kidneys. This is huge.
Sayer Ji of Green Med Info has a wonderful article on the therapeutic benefits of mushrooms with more detailed information. It is definitely worth the read. Thanks Sayer for compiling all this wonderful and helpful information.
After realizing the powerful antitumor, anticancer, anti-inflammatory, antidiabetic, and antioxidant power in these gifts of nature, I now use a mushroom/cocoa powder in my smoothie each day.
What are some ways you use mushrooms to enhance your health?
