Hi! I've been reading up on mushrooms and how they can help with illnesses. Some I've read about (see links) include Reishi, ****take, Maitake, and Cordyceps. I believe I saw a post on here about Cordyceps.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shiitake_mushroom

I purchased Solaray Brand Reishi so far, and I have noticed improvement with my COPD. And this was one supplement I didn't react to, unlike most herbs, probably because the only other ingredient in the Solaray Reishi mushroom was "gelatin".

Since I react to so many foods and additives with Lyme, I was wondering if any of you have purchased the Solaray brand mushrooms above and could tell me what the other ingredients are.

I can't order anything until I know. Thanks for your help. I can vouch though that Reishi does help with lung function. I think it helps me cough the junk up, too!

Hello,

I do not have an answer to your question about other ingredients in your brand of Reishi supplements, but I wanted to let you know I am also having wonderful result with Reishi. I too have Lyme Lung and coughing up is a blessing.

But I want to tell you about wonderful cordyceps. I had the black finger of death upon me and since I have began cordyceps I have rallied enough to join all the delightful lymies here on this site.
The fragrance itself is bracing, and it is not too expensive at Pharmanex.

Good luck with your mushies

I get medicinal mushrooms from: http://www.fungi.com/mycomeds/capsules.html.

Paul Stamets is an expert with mushrooms, studying them all his life. They will not fight lyme, but will strengthen your immune system.

He also sells mushrooms growing kits, so probably could save you money in the long run ( but I have not tried them yet).
