Medicinal Mushrooms: Nature's Miracle Workers • Episode 17 • Free •
This next episode highlights one of Nature’s most extraordinary gifts to this world – medicinal mushrooms. I’ve taken them in dual extract form for years and have always known they are medicinal but doing the deeper research has blown my mind.
In hours 1 and 2 I will share with you the most wondrous benefits of a number of medicinal mushrooms and in hour 2 I’ll discuss spagyrics, tincturing and more. Nature has a cure and a solution for everything and by the way, so does our body, which is earth – if we avail ourselves of what nature offers. That includes aligning with her cycles. She is both a kindly and fierce mother, teacher and mentor.
Wei Qi Soup
Fill a pot 2/3 full with purified or spring water, then add:
~ Astragalus membranaceus, 5-7 sticks
~ Ganoderma lucidum (ie: reishi)
1 medium
~ (any other tonifying mushrooms),
~ 2-3 small fruiting bodies
~ Slightly sprouted beans, 1/4 – 1/2 cup (aduki, black, etc)
Bring water to boil, simmer for 20 minutes, then add:
~ Organic barley, 1/2 – 1 cup
(choose amount depending on thickness desired)
Simmer another 20 minutes, then add favorite vegetables such as:
~ Carrots and celery
~ beet tops (or chard, collards, mustard greens, etc.)
~ potatoes (optional)
~ sea vegetables (nori, kelp, wakame, etc.)
~ gobo (ie: burdock root)
~ nettles or other wild greens (when available)
~ garlic and onions
Simmer until the vegetables are tender, then add miso and spices, such as ginger, celery, or fennel seed. Make enough for a few days and store it in the fridge.
Indications and Dosage:
During illness, when solid food is not desirable, drink 3-4 cups of the warm broth (add less barley and more water to make broth). For degenerative immune conditions, eat 1-2 small bowls per day, and drink the broth as desired. For autoimmune diseases such as allergies, lupus, diabetes, and hepatitis, accompanied by fatigue, weakness, or autoimmune conditions, eat the soup when desired, or drink the broth. This soup can be used upon occasion (1-2 times per week) for general tonification and may help to increase stamina.

The medicinal mushroom market is rife with fraudulently advertised products that contain little medicinal value due to certain growing methods and poor sourcing. Those dealing with cancer and other illnesses who are seeking to avail themselves of the many healing constituents these mushrooms contain are often deprived of receiving the extraordinary benefits found in properly sourced fungi. Enter Garrett Kopp, a learned and dedicated steward of the Adirondack forests in northern New York State whose heartfelt connection to that precious land enables him to hear what he calls, “the whisper in the wind.” He is a voice for Chaga sustainability and he speaks to the importance of sourcing wild-harvested medicinal mushrooms for their forest-given potency.

Magic Mushrooms: The Bad Trip • Episode 10 • Free •

I love working with dreams as they reveal so much if we can decipher the symbolism and intuit their messages. Nature and the deep psyche – which is nature – speak in symbol, and a psychedelic mushroom journey is no different. Over the years I’ve helped people interpret and integrate their psychedelic journeys including the “bad trips.” You can’t predict how a journey will go but there is much that can be done to make sure you are safe and comfortable and well-tended. If and when a mushroom journey goes sideways there are many things you can do to recover and begin the process of understanding just what the hell happened.

In the first hour I offer advice on how to prepare for a journey to ensure that even if the journey goes dark we are as safe as we can possibly be. I share a couple of stories of particularly difficult experiences and how I worked with that client to interpret the event. My approach is to key into the symbolic nature of the experience and it is my hope that those interested will have an avenue to better understand their own challenging journey and/or the journeys of others.
Hour 2 begins by delving into a nightmare shared by my late teacher, Dr Brugh Joy, MD, and explores his approach to dream interpretation, which can be used to make sense of a bad or a pleasant journey. I then discuss what to do after a bad trip and I also touch on spirit possession. With psilocybin mushrooms getting so much good press these days there are more people than ever who are availing themselves. It is essential to be as prepared as possible and have all the tools we need to get through it and learn from the experience.
