Mycotherapy Healing with Mushrooms

Healing with mushrooms – Mycotherapy (“Mykos – Greek mushroom”)

Mycotherapy has a very long tradition. The often tasty mushrooms are equipped with all sorts of medically effective substances that positively support the body.

In the vital mushroom
therapy, two aspects are in the foreground, the holistic person is healed and the causes of the diseases are eliminated.

The probably oldest described healing effect will come from the stone age man Ötzi. The ancestor lived approximately between 3359 and 3105 BC. , so the age of the mummy today is about 5250 years. He was found in 1991 in a glacier crevasse in the Ötztal (South Tyrol). Of course, this was a stroke of luck for science. Here we had a frozen picture of a caveman. After intensive investigation, an amulet was found on his neck. This pendant was a mushroom more precisely a porling. This medicinal mushroom has a strong healing effect that helps with stomach problems and being unwell. Which was probably very helpful on a long journey across the Alps.

Another treasure of the past comes from the Asian region where the use of medicinal and vital mushrooms is a living tradition (TCM traditional Chinese medicine) that has proven itself. Unfortunately, in Central Europe there are hardly any records of the medical use of medicinal mushrooms. This disappeared with the Christianization of the indigenous peoples of Europe. Some old rents are still to be found today one thinks of Christmas and the fly agaric. The Raunächte was very popular with medicine men (Santa Claus).
