Medicinal Mushrooms in Practice
Conference suitable for alternative medicine practitioners and naturopathic students
Duration : 6 hours
Date : will follow soon
Schedule : from 9:30 am to 4:30 pm
Price : $69
Have you been wanting to incorporate medicinal mushrooms more in your practice but are unsure how to do so safely, or are you looking for the latest information out there to deepen your current knowledge?
Join Jerry Angelini for a full day, in depth, conference on the modern scientific knowledge, clinical applications, as well as traditional uses of the most common medicinal mushrooms.
The conference will cover the following mushrooms: Ganoderma lucidum (Reishi), Cordyceps militaris, Ionotus obliquus (Chaga), Hericium erinaceus (Lion’s Mane), Trametes versicolor (Turkey Tail), Grifola frondosa (Maitake), Fomitopsis Officinalis (Agarikon) and Lentinula edodes (Shiitake).
More specifically, Jerry Angelini will:
- Review taxonomy, extraction methods, active compounds, how mushrooms interact with immune cells as well as their impact on our microbiome. For eg he will discuss each part of the mushroom and its specific concentration of active ingredients;
- Discuss methods of action, indications, therapeutic doses, side effects, herb/drug interactions and toxic doses of the above mentioned mushrooms. As we become more familiar with the activity of various compounds from mushrooms, we see that they have multiple activities dependent upon whether they are being utilized as food by microorganisms inhabiting the intestinal tract or because they are triggering innate and acquired immune cell activity within the peyer’s patches. Many detailed mechanisms will be explored, for eg:
o The role of polysaccharides and fatty acid complexes on different immune cells including NK cells, macrophages and dendritic cells;
o The stabilizing effect of Cordyceps and its active constituent cordycepin on Mast cells as well as its ability to reduce other avenues of hyper-reactivity in the bronchial tubes and airways, including IgE but also IL4, IL5 and IL13; all associated with allergic reactivity and mucous hypersecretion;
o The impact of Chaga compounds on the Bronchial Associated Lymphatic Tissue (BALT) and Gut Associated Lymphatic Tissue (GALT).
