Sorry about being MIA again lately! I’m on the school HOME STRETCH now, which means I’m a busy lady!! But I haven’t forgotten about you guys!!
So how do you feel about weird foods and supplements?
I went to a Chinese Medicine Pharmacy yesterday and he recommended some VERY interesting things to me!
First off Red Reishi
This crazy little mushroom is considered the “mushroom of immortality”
From the handout he gave me, the things that it can help is; insomnia, fatigue, frequent sickness, listlessness, forgetfulness, poor appetite, loose stools, dizziness, sore low back, asthma and cough with phlegm. It can also help with; Cancer, viral hepatitis, coronary heart disease, diabetes Mettitus (Type II), Hypertension, Rheumatoid Arthritis.
The benefits can include – increased energy, clear skin, improved stress response, decreased risk of cancer, regulated sugar and lipid levels in blood, feeling of relaxation, improved inflammatory response, improved lung health and improved immune function.
Holy smokes hey? Click here for more info
Yesterday I went to my favourite Raw + Vegan restaurant, Zen Zero and I tried one of their Reishi Coffee’s and it was really good (coming from a non-coffee drinker)!!
Anywhoo, I’m going to give it a try, I’ll keep you posted!
Disclaimer - I am no medical professional, I just got this info off of the handouts that I was given.
The Pharmacy also suggested TULSI tea – which is also known as Holy Basil…
I tried it last night, and it tastes great!! We’ll see about the benefits!
At Zen Zero, I also got a Stinging nettle smoothie!! (I told you I had a weird food day!)
From Zen Zero’s website;
Some of the many health benefits of Stinging Nettles include, high levels of iron (high enough to cure anemia), high levels of vitamins A & C, high levels of chlorophyll and it’s a complete protein. As if that wasn’t awesome enough – they actually taste good!
You can read more about it HERE! (and see the yummy ingredients in this smoothie)
It was a pretty tasty smoothie too!! I would totally get it (and the reishi coffee) again!
Have you ever tried “Weird things?” If so, what was it!?! Do tell!! Did you keep taking it?
