Medicinal Mushrooms: Practical Applications for Nutrition and Wellness Practices

with Mason Bresett, ND

Presentation description:

 90 minutes of education focused on the practical application of medicinal mushroom use is the priority of this presentation. Case studies based on common conditions familiar to all health and wellness professionals will be prioritized. Traditional use (TCM) and ideas on synergy will add depth and vigour to participants’ private practice success. Protocols, dosing and contraindications will be discussed when relative. Special mention of psilocybin, active compound testing, fungal parts used, ergothioneine and trained innate immunity will add new context to mycology applications. Advanced discussion on using medicinal mushrooms in adjunct cancer care, autoimmune, CIRS and mold cases is welcomed in the question and answer period. All information is based on historical use, evidence informed resources and/or clinical experience.
