Fungi Perfecti: MyCommunity Mushroom Product has Improved my Health


Paul Stamets, mycologist, with Leslie Goldman, Your Enchanted Gardener (that’s me!) at the Host Defense booth at the Natural Product Expo West 2013


Winter 2013 I was searching for a way out of persistent colds and susceptibility to flu-like symptoms. I heard Dr.Andrew Weil M.D. speak at the Scripps Natural Supplement Conference in February. He said he used mushroom products. I learned they were from Fungi Perfect and Host Defense.

Since, my immune system has improved, including major improvements to my bowel health. I learn toward IBS conditions. I have had diarrhea last for years. I experienced a profound shift when after I started to take MyCommunity, one of the Mushroom blends available from from Host Defense.

This is one of many mushroom products created by Paul Stemets, one of the most original thinkers I have met. I was stunned to realize that in all my years of health research and experience, I had not had Paul Stamets and the healing power of mushrooms on my radar. That has now shifted.

I have done numbers of Plant Your Dream Blogs about my experience with the mushrooms.

I am now a believer.

There are many videos on the web about the this remarkable man and his work and the contribution that the mycelium are making to save our earth. “How Mushrooms Can Save Our Earth” is the line on the cover of his book “Mycellium Running.”

I highly recommend this book. I highly recommend MyCommunity for building the immune system. I will be getting deeper into the work of Paul Stamens here on the Plant Your Dream Blog.

MyCommunity is the mushroom blend I use everyday.  Turkey Tail, another product from Host Defense, has been found helpful in NIH tests for breast cancer.  I sent a bottle to a friend in need.
