Mushrooms as Medicine?
Oct 24, 2005

Hello! What's your view on "mushrooms as medicine", specifically Fungi Perfecti's MycoSoft Gold / New Chapter's Host Defense capsulized immune-enhancing mushrooms? Reading A. Weill's 08.2003 contrib in Self Healing (Natural Pharmacy rubric) has me intrigued! Thought I'd "ask the experts" first, tho, ere I gorge thereon! TIA. Dana Charles Huffman Oakland, CA

Response from Dr. Frascino

Hello Dave,

Mushrooms belong in the kitchen, not the medicine cabinet. They improve the taste of a good marinara sauce and are great on pizza, but they do not "enhance" the immune response to HIV or other pathogens.

Buon Appetito!

Dr. Bob

I had all of the syptoms
