According to health experts and scientists, mushrooms are a real life-saver!
“There is another exciting emerging supplement that can be a very helpful adjunct to supporting your immune system, and that’s mushrooms.
Over 300 different species of mushrooms are now believed to have human health-promoting potential. Evidence continues to emerge, confirming how mushrooms’ proteins, trace minerals, polysaccharides, amino acids and fiber support overall health by:
- Promoting normal cellular growth
- Protecting against environmental stressors
- Supporting your body’s normal detoxification process
- Supporting healthy gut flora
- Promoting optimal digestion
While most people think only of eating the fleshy fruiting body of the mushroom, meaning the part you see growing above ground, most of the magic in the mushroom is actually located in their complex root structure that grows underground, called the mycelium, which can be up to 95 percent of a mushroom’s total biomass.”

Something you should know about us! My family is full of health-freaks you could say, but that’s probably because of the experience we went through with my brother and our personal health. Ever since my brother was diagnosed with Leukemia 3 years ago (he’s almost done with treatment!!!), we have had a growing interest in a healthier lifestyle. It isn’t that we were unhealthy, it’s just that there were certain things we did and ate without realizing that they were bad. For example, we never used to think that a hot dog for dinner is unhealthy! Then it was also our personal problems. With stress my mom gained weight and after I finished high school, I began to have torturous problems with acne and digestion.
Within that time, not including my brother’s condition, we have gone through many typical MD doctors, procedures, unnecessary tests, and even the emergency room here in America. Unfortunately, the system has been built to discover major problems like cancer instead of prevention. So, you could say that through experience and also wanting to feel like normal humans again, we’ve done so much research and never stop doing that research in order to feel great – always! Some of our favorite health practitioners (or amazing people with information) that we are grateful for discovering everyday are; Dr. Mercola, Kevin Trudeau, The Gerson Institute, David Wolfe, and many more!
But, I will get back to the point! Recently, Dr. Mercola posted the ways to prevent the cold and flu and also what to do if you happen to get sick. A new recommendation that he posted was to eat mushrooms! This was new and shocking for me! He suggests eating Reishi, Shiitake, and Maitake mushrooms!
On top of mushrooms being a MUST in our diet, mushrooms or rather mycelium, can save the world – literally! You must watch this TED video on 6 ways that mushrooms can save us! It is absolutely fascinating!
Ok, honestly, how amazing was that video? All of the trash, the excess oil that leaks out into the world can be totally cleaned up. COMPLETELY CLEANED. All because of this magical organism that is a part of us, our Earth, and our Universe.
And did you hear Paul Stamets basically saying that the Earth created the internet and that the Earth wants us to help save it. This proof and research done on the magical mycelium further proves that we, humans and everything around us is all connected and we are all run by the same force and that is ENERGY!
Check out these microscopic images of mycelium:
And now look at these microscopic images of human stem cells:
Are we not one? 🙂
Although this last post didn’t have anything to do with fashion, topics like this are a daily inspiration for us and our designs. We’re living in an incredible age and science is making incredible discoveries! We hope you will enjoy this as well!
Peace & Love,
