Turkey Tail Mushroom Capsules
Turkey tail mushrooms have been found to support immune function and gut health, and can be extremely supportive for those undergoing cancer treatment or in remission. Polysaccharide krestin (PSK), a compound found in turkey tail mushroom may improve response to chemotherapy, and there is some evidence that it has antitumour and tumour shrinking abilities.
Mushrooms work so well in our systems because they are immuno-modulators. This means that when they enter into the body they assess the situation-- if the immune system is overactive, they will help to suppress it, and if it is under-functioning mushrooms can help ramp it up. Medicinal mushrooms are extremely nontoxic, and have minimal interaction potential with medications, making them a great bridge for those who wish to merge western medical therapeutics with holistic medicines.
If you or a family member are interested in incorporating turkey tail mushrooms into your cancer care plan, I urge you to watch this YouTube video featuring world renowned mycologist Paul Stamets. His mother was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer and given a terminal prognosis, and she shrunk her tumours and fully recovered by taking a therapeutic dosage of turkey tail mushroom alongside her cancer treatment!
Dosing for cancer therapy:
This article talks about a woman undergoing treatment for breast cancer and taking 4g of turkey tail twice daily, totalling 8g daily. My capsules contain between 800mg and 1g/capsule.
To determine your tolerance and how turkey tail feels in your body, my suggestion is to start taking 2-3 capsules daily, eventually working up to 6-8 capsules daily. Doses should be split up into 2-3 per day to maximize absorption.
The study mentioned above states that up to 9g of turkey tail daily is considered safe, and taking them at higher doses will be most therapeutic when treating cancer.
Dosing for general immune/gut health:
2-3 capsules daily
