Allergy finally under control: new quality of life thanks to medicinal mushrooms

Persistent pain and a variety of different complaints determine everyday life with fibromyalgia. Vital mushrooms provide gentle relief and help the body to achieve more balance.

Fibromyalgia sufferers must learn to live with persistent pain. Fibromyalgia literally means “muscle-fiber pain”, which clearly indicates the main symptom: chronic pain that primarily occurs in muscles and tendon attachments in the neck, back, chest and arm and leg joints. However, these are by no means the only symptoms associated with what is more of a syndrome. There are various symptoms in the central and autonomic nervous system, the immune system, the hormone balance and the gastrointestinal tract. These include states of exhaustion, sleep disorders, depression, irritable bowel syndrome with food intolerances, various vegetative symptoms, concentration disorders, delayed recovery after stress and much more. Officially, between two and four percent of Germans are affected by fibromyalgia. However, experts assume that the number of unreported cases is high, as the diagnosis is difficult to make. Similar clinical pictures such as chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) must be excluded as a matter of priority. Fibromyalgia cannot be cured. However, there are many measures that sufferers can take to alleviate their suffering and regain their quality of life. Vital mushrooms such as Pleurotus, Reishi and Hericium are one option from naturopathy that can be used very specifically. Its ingredients help to alleviate the symptoms as well as stabilize the derailed physical processes.

When stress makes you ill

One of the medicinal mushrooms that provides relief for people with fibromyalgia is pleurotus. It counteracts the typical symptom of muscle-fiber pain. It achieves this through its muscle-relaxing and tendon-strengthening properties. Even if scientists still do not know exactly what causes the disease, a close connection with high stress levels in childhood and in the present is considered certain. These can be early childhood traumas and an emotionally stressful family situation. The actual onset of the disease is often preceded by stressful life situations. This is why medicinal mushrooms that have a balancing and calming effect on the body are particularly helpful. These include reishi and hericium, for example, which provide relief for typical symptoms such as exhaustion, vegetative symptoms and sleep problems. In addition, fibromyalgia sufferers have repeatedly been shown to have a high oxidative stress load with impaired energy metabolism. This explains the rapid exhaustion of patients. Cordyceps is a very good support here, it gives strength and energy. Both cordyceps and reishi are rich in substances that reduce oxidative stress. Overall, however, it is a very heterogeneous clinical picture, which is why a suitable treatment must always be individually designed. The renowned MykoTroph Institute offers a free telephone consultation for this purpose. Here, patients receive customized recommendations on medicinal mushrooms that improve their quality of life.

Wide-ranging support from medicinal mushrooms

If you take a closer look at the group of sufferers, it is noticeable that 90% of those affected are women. The first symptoms often occur in the 4th decade of life and often reach their peak around the menopause. This suggests a connection to the hormone balance. Medicinal mushrooms can be a great help here, as they counteract the hormonal imbalance. They regulate both sex hormones (cordyceps) and thyroid function (reishi). Fibromyalgia sufferers often suffer from an underactive thyroid gland. Vital mushrooms also help to compensate for the often existing serotonin deficiency. The lack of serotonin increases pain sensitivity, particularly in the digestive tract. Many patients have irritable bowel symptoms and food intolerances. Medicinal mushrooms can also be used to address these points very effectively. They maintain healthy intestinal flora, support the mucous membranes in the digestive tract and strengthen the kidneys and liver, which are important organs for detoxification. The mixture of reishi and pleurotus is also known to reduce allergic reactions. A reduction in the accompanying symptoms alone can bring great relief in the case of fibromyalgia and reduce the general stress level.
