From cosmetics to strengthening the immune system
Two years ago, the movie “Fantastic Mushroom” was released on Netflix, which described it in a spectacular way The variety of qualities of the fungus in the fields of food, medicine, consciousness expansion, biological rehabilitation, nerve cell formation and anxiety treatment. Science is constantly researching their properties and ability to cure diseases, and in recent years there have been various chemotherapeutic drugs that contain different strains of fungi. Is it time to replace paracetamol, coffee and vitamins with regular consumption of medicinal mushrooms?”Already 5,000 years ago, the Chinese understood the power of mushrooms,” says Ella Wendel, 68, enthusiastically. Wendell studied pharmacy and naturopathy and was on her way to a medical track, until she decided to change track and specialize in nutritional supplements and homeopathy. In 2012, she met the founder of a mushroom growing company named Kobi Cohen, who offered her to join him on the mushroom journey. Although she had already seen retirement on the horizon, something attracted her to explore, study and join the journey.

“Kobi and Nachshol Cohen founded the company Mykolivia for growing and selling mushrooms after their father contracted grade 4 cancer, and the doctors gave him a roof over a few months. Kobi gave his father the mushrooms and he ended up living another 4 years. I always wanted to get cancer, because I have A nurse who fell ill 9 years ago and saw what happened in the hospitals, so I told myself that I would open a clinic only for cancer patients. Today I am writing a book with naturopath Sharon Tzur, which explains the variety of medicinal fungal effects. One will recognize these mushrooms.

The fungi communicate with themselves

In which medical cases do you treat with the help of the fungus?

“I have had about 100 cases of grade 4 cancer that I have treated. Cases that have tried almost everything, and with the help of the fungus we are witnessing cases of complete recovery and significant relief in most of the side effects of the treatments. They have no side effects and do not interfere with any medication.

How do fungi affect the body?

“The fungi can talk to each other even if they are not close to each other. Although they grow underground on rotten trees, they have discovered that they have an underground web as the most sophisticated Internet network in the world. It turns out that the fungi communicate with each other underground and can feed on each other “In the human body they do the same thing, the fungus knows how to work against our body’s immune system and understand what it needs to do inside it to be balanced.”

How is it different from other vitamins that strengthen the immune system?

“Mushrooms know how to work miracles and wonders, not only in cancer. For example: Mighty mushrooms know how to balance sugar like no other mushroom can. It also balances everything related to the female hormonal system. Jordan mushrooms for example are very effective in diabetes, sugar addiction and cholesterol lowering. There are also various chemotherapy drugs that are made from mushrooms. ”

When someone with cancer comes to you, does he stop getting the conventional treatment?

“Never. The integrative combination is much better and I also never tell anyone to stop medical treatment. I am not a doctor, but I also have patients who decided not to do the treatments and asked to take only the mushrooms and recovered completely. Each case individually and one is not similar to the other .

More than 4 years ago, the husband of a girl named Tal, 28, a mother of a child, called me and told me that he must have his wife. She was diagnosed with a rare lung cancer, she underwent surgery and she is in an acute condition. He emailed me the tests and I was scared, her condition was really difficult. We used the mushrooms while undergoing chemotherapy, and after something like 8 months, I got a call from them and they told me the findings were gone. She already had liver metastases, it was the second or third time I had seen such a thing. The doctor said it was a medical miracle. “Half a year after she finished the treatments, she became pregnant again.”

How do mushrooms help you personally?

“I take Agrocus mushroom every morning, which works on everything related to the skin. It also protects the bones, against osteoporosis. I also take Reishi, which is the queen of mushrooms and is excellent for the back, liver, blood and it is also very soothing. The third fungus I take is hyrisium , A fungus that works on the nervous system.It is good for dementia, attention and concentration, it is also great for chronic pain, and I use it a lot also for people who suffer from the pain of cancer.
