Even if you’re not really into mushrooms, the fact is that you’re breathing in mushroom spores right now and these fungi play an enormous role in our lives and that of our planet. There are over 400 known medicinal mushrooms that are said to heal everything from gut health to cancer and apparently the oldest living thing on earth is a 2,000 plus year old, over 6,000 ton fungus in Oregon, USA.

I grew up on a farm and we ate lots of field mushrooms that I’d go and collect with my dad, which mum would later cook up with a whole piece of garlic to check whether or not they were poisonous, by observing if the garlic changed colour or not. But it wasn’t until I visited a friend in Italy that I was exposed to a huge array of wild culinary and medicinal mushrooms that I’d never seen or heard of, that his dad had foraged from the mountains close to their village which opened my mind to the world of fungi.

In this episode of TheEdTalks I chat with Tero Isokauppila, co-founder of medicinal mushroom company Four Sigmatic and our discussion delivers a wealth of knowledge on the benefits of various mushrooms, as well as how we can use them to sedate our kids naturally!

Remember to always consult your healthcare practitioner prior to consuming new types of food or supplements such as mushrooms.

In this episode you’ll discover:

  • Why fungi are so important for plants, humans and the planet
  • What Mycoremediation is and how it can play a part in reducing toxins
  • How oyster mushrooms can suck up diesel fuel
  • What led Anglo Saxons to be known as mushroom racists
  • The difference between medicinal and culinary mushrooms
  • The energy boosting effects of cordyceps
  • Why reishi mushrooms may be a better natural alternative to help you sleep
  • Why you should avoid consuming raw mushrooms
  • Which mushroom may actually help with candida
  • Why you should go organic with mushrooms when possible
