Reishi – good for the liver or a bit too inflammatory?October 17, 2021 at 6:13 pm #6292AmyParticipant
As I have been enjoying learning more about fungi here, I have been looking into the ways that this overlaps with the work of Dr. D’Adamo with both blood type and genotype. I am blood type B and Nomad genotype and ALL the mushrooms are good for me according to these. However, I have a friend who is also my acupuncturist and she is blood type O and Hunter genotype. The material says that only Enoki mushrooms are really good for her, although there are some unlisted and therefore “neutral” ones that might be ok in moderations. As Andrew Weil talks about, mushrooms are a very highly valued cure for many things in Chinese medicine. My friend said she tried mushrooms for immunity a while back and they didn’t agree with her. She didn’t think she had tried Enoki mushrooms though. My current working theory is that depending upon your blood type and/or genotype, there may be some mushrooms that are not good for you and/or that you may develop an allergy to, there may be some mushrooms that might be ok in moderation, and there may be some that are very good for you, as well as some that fall into any of these categories that have not yet been discovered.October 18, 2021 at 8:54 am #6491NinaParticipant
thanks for your thoughts Amy.
I totally agree. I would love to know more about what mushrooms are neutral.
I guess there are no “one fits all” in anything.
I do drink a lot of chaga since we have it growing here in Sweden everywhere and I’m not sick much so I don’t know if this is beneficial or not. 😀October 18, 2021 at 8:37 pm #6627AmyParticipant
They say the unlisted ones should be neutral. I have not seen the following mushrooms listed as bad for any genotype, so I would think they would be neutral: Chaga! Cordyceps, Lions Mane, Turkey Tail, psilocybin. I believe there are quite a few others that I am unfamiliar with. If you are doing well with Chaga, it’s probably good for you! Do you know your blood type?
I think even fewer people know their genotype, but to elaborate a little more on what I said in the last post, blood type Os can be three different genotypes, and the Gatherer genotype does well with a lot of mushrooms that they other two do not. The blood types make more gross generalizations saying that Os shouldn’t eat any mushrooms, but you can see that isn’t necessarily true for all Os, maybe not any.
