Mycotherapy is therapy using medicinal mushrooms, which have been used for thousands of years in the Oriental systems of medicine, inherited from the medical traditions of China, Japan and Tibet.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine (MTC), certain mushrooms species work on precise body meridians pathways and organs. Many modern scientific studies have proven the efficacy of the traditional use of medicinal mushrooms, particularly in Japanese and Chinese clinical research, particularly in the field of oncology.
In Europe, the International Mycotherapy Institute (IMI) has conducted research and supported medical cases for the past thirty years, in the fields of oncology, autoimmune and neurodegenerative disease.
Western medicine benefits from the characteristics of certain type of fungal substances, which are used as antiobiotics such as penicilline. Currently the anticancer benefits of a fungal drug called spirolaxine is being investigated for its ability to inhibit angiogenesis.
The Family Medical Herbalist relies on medicinal mushrooms grown exclusively within the European Union. Organic agriculture is especially important for mushrooms, as they have the power to chelate heavy metals as well as toxins from the soil, whereas it is desirable that their chelating power should be dedicated to chelating toxins from the human body.
