Chaga is an incredibly powerful medicinal mushroom that is highly sought after due to its phenomenal levels of antioxidants and healing properties. The antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and healing compounds found in chaga are easily and quickly assimilated and utilized by the body.
Chaga is rich in Vitamins A, C, B, D, and E, and minerals such as manganese, iron, calcium, zinc, and selenium. It also contains potent anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial, anti-fungal, anti-candida, and anti-parasite properties. So for me, this is more of a “preventative” tool that I use often (but not daily). I also really admire chaga for being rich in beta-glucans, which can dramatically strengthen and reinforce my immune system, plus it also contains some hefty anti-inflammatory properties.
So what other sort of symptoms or conditions would I use chaga mushroom for?
CANCER! Chaga is one of the best sources of betulinic acid which is known to kill cancer cells on contact, and is particularly beneficial for colon, stomach, endometrial, lung, breast, and prostate cancer. Chaga is one of the top anti-cancer and anti-tumor foods, and is highly valued in a variety of natural cancer treatments and preventative protocols.
I would also bring chaga into my life if I suffered with any of the following…chronic fatigue syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, fibromyalgia, irritable bowl syndrome, Crohn's disease, lymphoma, bursitis, shingles, HIV, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, ALS, gout, scleroderma, osteoarthritis, cataracts and PCOS. Since chaga has tremendous anti-inflammatory properties, I would consume it regularly if I suffered with IBS, arthritis, colitis, cystitis, tendonitis, edema, asthma, celiac disease, and acne.
Dandelion root (Taraxacum officinale) is not just a weed, this entire plant has long been used in herbal medicine for centuries. I use dandelion root to support the health of my liver— especially to filter out toxins. It’s a liver protector, and dandelion root helps the liver do its job more effectively. This root is especially high in antioxidants which can neutralize free radicals… Over time, the accumulation of free radicals can lead to cell damage and chronic disease. Antioxidants help neutralize these harmful compounds and have been shown to reduce the risk of conditions like heart disease and cancer.
I also like dandelion root because it possesses antimicrobial properties that can help stop the growth of disease-causing bacteria—like staph, and the bacteria that can contribute to food borne illnesses.
Dandelion roots are a great source of fiber, and are especially rich in a type of soluble fiber known as inulin. Fiber has several health benefits, especially when it comes to regulating blood sugar levels. Because fiber moves through the body undigested, it helps slow the absorption of sugar in the bloodstream, which can help improve long-term blood sugar control. In addition to maintaining steady blood sugar levels, fiber can also protect against a multitude of digestive issues, including constipation, hemorrhoids, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and stomach ulcers.
So what other sort of symptoms or conditions would I use dandelion root for?
If I was dealing with any types of cancer…leukemia, pancreatic cancer, breast cancer—and If I was a guy, and had prostate cancer--I would bring in the dandelion root. Even if I was labeled cancer free, I would still make dandelion root an everyday part of my life. If I was dealing with high cholesterol, I would bring in the dandelion root as well-- Dandelion root has been shown to reduce total cholesterol, triglycerides and bad LDL cholesterol, as well it increases the beneficial HDL cholesterol.
