I love coffee. Most of us do. But at some point I had to give up caffeine, as hard as it was. I was experiencing severe health issues. My adrenal had chronic fatigue, and I was suffering from panic attacks. One day, I was sharing this experience with a girlfriend, who gave me the idea to use mushrooms rather than coffee grounds. I went home, and mixed the Chaga ( a strong, bitter mushroom) with the Reishi ( a bit mild in taste ) in a ratio of 1 part Chaga, to 2 parts Reishi. I substituted it for my coffee, and using my homemade almond milk, the result delicious. It became my non-guilty pleasure. I was able to enjoy my “coffee “ to get the energy boost I needed, while getting various health benefits that you don’t get from coffee. The antioxidants help to slow the aging process and are the strongest preventatives for cancer. I was nursing my body with the healthiest ancient sustinence.
