Illnesses from A to Z


Around a third of all people in industrialised countries suffer from allergies, which are also among the illnesses that are most difficult to treat. The overreaction of the immune system to substances in the environment that are actually harmless can become apparent in various ways: with itching, burning eyes, a runny nose, digestive problems, coughing and many other symptoms that are sometimes not very easily associated with an allergy. This is the case, for instance, with chronic fatigue, which can be a sign of continuous stress on the organism.

Whether it progresses in a highly acute or chronic manner depends on the various types of reaction into which the allergies are divided. While symptoms occur within minutes for a classic, immediate type of allergy, such as a pollen allergy, it can take days for the first symptoms of a late type of allergy to occur, which significantly hampers research into the causes.

Reliable holistic techniques that focus on regulating the physical system, which is generally out of sync, are often more successful than treatment approaches within conventional medicine. In many cases, even cleaning up the intestinal environment provides significant relief as a healthy gut means a healthy immune system. Medicinal mushrooms as a dietary supplement are ideal when used supportively here.


Medicinal mushrooms for allergy sufferers

Reishi inhibits the release of the tissue hormone histamine, which is well-known to be responsible for many allergic symptoms, such as the swelling of mucous membranes and itching. Thanks to its adaptogenic effect, it is very well-suited to having a modulating effect on the immune system without further stimulating it, given its already excessive reaction situation.

With its positive effect on the mucous membranes of the digestive organs, Hericium makes an important contribution to establishing a permanently intact immune system – one of the basic prerequisites for the successful treatment of allergies. Hericium is above all helpful for allergies that express themselves in the gastro-intestinal tract.
