The Many Healing Qualities of Lion’s Mane Mushrooms

lionsmaneAre you familiar with Lion’s Mane Mushrooms? They have become the hot item for healthy eating. Vegetarians love them for their high protein content, while doctors and naturopaths go to them for their many healing qualities. Known by a variety of different names, such as bearded tooth mushroom, satyr’s beard,  hedgehog mushroom, pom pom mushroom, or  yamabushitake – the mushroom is often used as a meat substitute, since many say that they taste like shrimp or lobster when properly cooked.

Still, it is the medicinal properties of the fungus that have scientists amazed. Research indicates that benefits include improved digestion, improved memory, reduced cognitive decline and enhanced neuron growth and regeneration. The last few attributes have huge implications for the treatment of Alzheimers, Parkinsons, and other nervous system diseases.

The Huffington Post reported: “Recently, mice were injected with neurotoxic peptides in an experiment to assess the effects of lion’s mane on the type of amyloid plaque formation seen in Alzheimer’s patients. The mice were then challenged in a standard “Y” maze, designed for testing memory. Mice fed with a normal diet were compared to those supplemented with lion’s mane mushrooms. As the peptide-induced plaque developed, the mice lost the ability to memorize the maze. When these memory-impaired mice were fed a diet containing 5 percent dried lion’s mane mushrooms for 23 days, the mice performed significantly better in the Y maze test. Interestingly, the mice regained another cognitive capacity, something comparable to curiosity, as measured by greater time spent exploring novel objects compared to familiar ones.The reduction of beta amyloid plaques in the brains of mushroom-fed mice vs. the mice not fed any mushrooms was remarkable. The formation of amyloid plaques is what many researchers believe is a primary morphological biomarker associated with Alzheimer’s.”

If you’re not crazy about eating mushrooms straight, you can still get a lot of the benefits by taking the capsule form or drinking a tea made from them. Renowned mycologist, Paul Stamets, has pioneered new ways of cultivating and preparing mushrooms, and offers many varieties on his website, www.hostdefense.com  In a TED talk, Mr. Stamets explained his belief that mushrooms can save our lives, restore our ecosystems and transform other worlds, and in one video he explains all about Lions Mane specifically.

Your Home Sanctuary & Ancient Sacredness with Tim Walter

Your home sanctuary is directly connected to the sacred sites of ancient societies that still hold an attraction for visitors all over the world even after thousands of years. The essence of these places that archaeologists, historians, spiritual seekers and the vaguely interested call sacred sites is their atmosphere. It’s the enigmatic feeling that people are still there and a presence that is contradictory being intangible but also palpable as it hangs in the air and is felt even more strongly with the gentle laying of hand against age-worn stone.

Ancient Geoglyphs Found in Kazakhstan

| by Cheryl Shainmark

Ancient geoglyphs have been found in Kazakhstan. Reminiscent of crop circles, or the more famous Nazca Lines in Peru, the images, captured on Google Earth, depict over 250 giant earthworks designed to be seen from the sky. First noticed by an ardent Google Earth fan in 2007, NASA has now confirmed the pictures, and scientists from around the world are debating about the possible age and function of the man-made formations.

The Rebirth of Mother Earth & Humanity’s Lesson to Master by Judith Kusel

| by Judith Kusel

We are entering a time of profound earth changes as the inner core earth mass is shifting. When I talk about mass I talk about a type of substance that is like a river of fluidity at the moment, as the inner earth is inhabited and called Agartha. This is the outer crust of the inner earth, and then what we know as the upper earth, the inner core crust. I see this as a type of molten rock, or quartz and this is in the process of reforming into something else, as the ancient energy centers, which were laid down at the very beginning when the earth was created, are now awakening more and more.

The On-Going Enigma Of Stonehenge by Peter Quiller

| by Peter Quiller

Author Peter Quiller discussing the early beginnings of Stonehenge. If we take an arbitrary figure of one hundred henge‑building men, they might have needed at least two hundred and fifty other active men, women and children to help feed and cater for them whilst undertaking their henge‑building and ditch-digging duties. Theoretically, as hunter-gatherers, those in charge of the food supply would have had to cover at least three hundred and fifty square miles of productive territory, away from the barren Salisbury plain area – a colossal undertaking in primitive conditions, particularly when you remember they would have had to do this virtually every day!”

Notorious Ancient “Gold Library” Claims Proven: von Däniken is Vindicated by Erich von Däniken (with Giorgio A. Tsoukalos, editor of History Is Wrong, and Tankred Jeker)

| by Erich von Däniken (with Giorgio A. Tsoukalos, editor of History Is Wrong, and Tankred Jeker)

“…in History is Wrong, the truth about the mysterious golden library of el Cueva de los Tayos is at last presented with complete and undeniable documentation. And in addition, I further explain some of my other analyses of ancient texts, including the notorious Voynich manuscript—— which is thought to have been written in the 15th or 16th century and which has defied all attempts at decryption since its discovery. Readers of History is Wrong will realize that human history is nothing like the world religions claim.”
