Humanity has relied on the extraordinary healing powers of mushrooms for thousands of years. Their organic biochemical structure is adapted to treat many of our modern conditions. Whether stress or anxiety, muscular pain, or insomnia, mushrooms have been shown to nourish and restore our minds and bodies, reintroducing balance and harmony
Detoxified mushrooms have been widely consumed for centuries. During Greek and Roman times, mushrooms were often used to treat serious physical conditions and illnesses. In the secondcentury A.D., Dioscordes wrote a herbal treatise De Materia Medica eliciting the uses of mushrooms to treat a number of illnesses of the lungs, kidneys, spleen and bladder, as well as fevers and pains. Historical medical accounts reveal that Viking Warriors would regularly consume Amanita Muscaria mushrooms before battle in order to energise and strengthen their bodies. Later, during the Renaissance medical revolution, physicians and natural scientists heavily researched the healing properties of mushrooms, in the attempt to isolate their restorative powers.
By the end of the nineteenth century, medical centres across Europe began paying serious attention to the methodology in detoxifying mushrooms in order to treat and heal psychological and physical problems. Warburg’s tincture was a mushroom-based formula used widely throughout the British Empire to successfully treat tuberculosis and malaria. By the early twentieth century, Frederick Vernon Coville, the first director of the US National Arboretum, published a significant scientific treatise demonstrating the scientific benefits of detoxified mushrooms.
Modern science has further been able to study the biochemical composition of mushroom compounds, in turn isolating and distilling their extraordinary reparative and restorative powers. Detoxified mushrooms have been shown to treat depression, anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and a range of addictions. Furthermore, mushrooms have been shown to restore balance to the body, relaxing the muscles and repairing injuries, whilst simultaneously promoting remedial sleep and treating insomnia.
The Amanita Muscaria Mushroom
The amanita Muscaria mushroom is probably the most famous mushroom in the world. Widely popularised by Lewis Carrol’s The Adventures of Alice in Wonderland, the mushroom is red with white dots, and features in most palm of our hands as a very popular emoji! However, its fame in popular culture is not accidental. The Amanita Muscaria mushroom has been used in traditional healing practices for centuries. Shamanic tribes across Central and South America have turned to Amanita Muscaria to repair the mind, body and spirit for over five thousand years. In Northern Europe, Siberian tribes used the restorative property of the mushroom during winter solstice ceremonies. Physically invigorated by the mushroom, shamans would be able to face the blistering cold and below gifts of food and supplies down chimneys of families trapped in snow.
This tradition is said to have given birth to what we know today as “Santa Claus”. In Vedic Aryan traditions, the Amanita Muscaria was known as “Soma”, which translates as “The Divine Mushroom of Immortality”. The mushroom was celebrated for its relaxing effects, inducing restorative sleep, which not only meant healing the body, but in fact rejuvenating it.
