"Lately the focus has been around medicinal mushrooms, that is my main superfood of choice because it covers everything you would want a food to cover, but we do have an array of other products + services like personalized nutrition plans that work around your lifestyle in a way that upgrades your self-care routine. Food + Healthy mindset are the foundation for transformation. The idea is more about intuitive health, getting a sense of feeling into whats right for each our own authentic needs at all periods in our ever-changing lives. I like to keep it fresh as health is a forever changing paradigm that I work diligently at widening my scope on so I can bring to my client's unique strategies, helping them exploring potent philosophies to approach how to feel balanced and vital in the body. I work with individuals in a manner of experimenting, digging deep to find the core solution of what they need + how to best stay in touch with that for the period we work together. My heart is centered on empowering people. There is nothing more gratifying than witnessing someone taking charge of their life by getting into a balanced state of body + mind because its inevitable that in that state of being, they have the ability to tap into who they truly are. They realize their dreams & seem to be inspired to live + create from there. That to me is true fulfillment. My programs are built to be an investment in yourself, in my community after all.” - Kat Moon
LET FOOD BE THY MEDICINE Modern Health Maximized with Superfoods; OUR ANCIENT + FUTURISTIC “MEDICINE”
We've all heard it, the timeless advice from the mouth of Hippocrates "Let food be thy medicine, and medicine thy food.” We’re just here to remind you + expand creatively around that, stating that our health doesn’t have to be so complex, so linear that it gets to be confusing. It starts with deciding to prioritize + invest in yourself. At the root of it, health is a choice to direct the quality of our own lives by considering, just like in anything else, that you get out what you put in. So let's add in the good stuff, let's LIVE IT, not diet! We appreciate that you're here, reading what we have to share, so HIGH FIVES to you my friends for taking the initiative to widen your scope on living a healthy lifestyle. It's all in the experimenting, deciphering what balance + radiant health feels like for you as an individual. There is no cookie cutter plan, or magical pill to living a healthy life. The health industry is overloaded with trends and fads (insert almost any synthetic multivitamin or fat loss supplement into this category), we want you to have clarity through all of that & get to the root of your struggle. Take a test run & think about it in terms of that when you feel good, you look good, you do good! Its simple, healthy people make for a better world…. “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.” - Margaret Mead. It’s an incredible thing when you FEEL TURNED ON, inspired, awake and energized from how you treat your body, by how you eat, all the way to how you think. Take a moment to check in with a deep breathe in, and out. Now feel the breath move through your body + relax into this moment. Feel the state where you're currently at within your body. How are you feeling vs how would you like to feel? Maybe there is pain or maybe there is pleasure. Possibly you're feeling at the healthiest you’ve ever been. Take a moment to reflect on your previous state of health. Has it increased, decreased, remained relatively the same? What did you change vs not change? We can each learn so much within taking a moment to check in, to reflect & then ask “How can it get better than this?” Reflecting is an important key to growth, an essential key to a better future! If we could reflect far enough back into the lives of our ancestors we are sure we would find that they weren’t all that clueless. Rather they were resourceful and attuned to the natural landscapes that surrounded them, they were connected to their food. Now, the secret is that superfoods are nothing new, many have been used for centuries, found to be used throughout our ancestral lineages, all depending on where they lived. These foods seem to have been around forever (so we will call them ancient) but it’s just now that we have reliable access to them & good old science to back up the facts of truly how good they are for us! Our modern lifestyle has given us spectacular technological advancements and conveniences, it's a great time to be alive in the very reason that we now have easier access to the most nutritionally potent superfoods from around the planet. Here at Mutha Earth, we offer a diverse range that can maximize your health regime. Adding superfoods in isn’t totally like hitting the staples easy button, but it is pretty dang close. The future of health is bright if we can each re-wild ourselves with these foods + keep our inner ecosystem (the gut) thriving. “The gut is very intimately connected with the immune system, the more diverse it is, the more immune you are.” The gut is a big focus for us + we take your gut health very seriously! The gut has been declared through scientific circles to literally be our second brain! Basically, the health of your gut shows your immune response. Studies suggest that improving gut health can improve certain allergies, lower the odds of contracting an autoimmune disease, protect against heart disease and even make you less susceptible to cancer to evening improving anxiety, depression, anger, so on so forth. Our guts are host to trillions upon trillions of bacterial cells that form their own living environment called the gut microbiome (our bodies are actually made up of more bacteria than they are human cells). This mini-ecosystem creates signals that go through the body and cause some physiological + immunological effects. It is alive throughout your digestive tract helping in basic terms to absorb + digest nutrients. This is an extremely important function. This is where the importance of gut diversity comes in; you don’t just want to have a lot of bacteria in your gut, you want a lot of different kinds of bacteria. The gut-brain axis is an interplay between the gut and the mind. It might not be surprising to learn that this exists since it’s relatively well known that indigestion can be a symptom of stress. But the connection works the other way, too: the gut can affect the mind because certain neurotransmitters, like serotonin, are created in the gut through the microbiome. The gut microbes have an impact on inflammation in the gastrointestinal tract and that inflammation can cause the immune system to be more active. That can activate our nervous system and when that’s too active for too long, that can cause some psychological problems. Basically, if your body is super stressed out, that’ll impact your psychology.
So what exactly is a superfood? Maybe you're already all up in them, gaining their amazing benefits, feeling fly, keeping your good vibes high and energy balanced. Maybe you think they don’t really exist & it’s just regular “healthy” food...OR maybe you're just looking for a little more information! Let us break it down so you can get your groovy dance on with us. Superfoods are foods that hold a medicinal or herbal or like strength, a food with unique + extraordinary properties. Generally considered to contain a wide variety of essential nutrients while packing large doses of antioxidants, polyphenols, vitamins, and minerals. These very special natural substances (SUPERFOODS) we offer have been associated with the highest qualities of living. The ideals of long life, slow aging, glowing health, happiness, wisdom, physical vitality, adaptability & sexual vigor. By achieving these, one can be said to have attained true "radiant health. By adding in superfoods your literally upgrading your body! When the body is nutritionally fulfilled, it no longer craves all the processed, artificial junk that numbs the senses and cuts us off from the bigger picture. They are a great way to create & support a solid self-care routine. Simply add these in to experience your best self. •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

We are even safe for pregnant to breastfeeding woman but suggest Reishi however we still ask that you consulting with your physician. We recommend reishi or chug provided the mother feels it is safe for her to add in. There is very little peer-reviewed research available on the use of medicinal mushrooms during pregnancy. Since pregnancy involves changes in the immune function, it’s best to proceed with care. We advise consulting with your doctor or caregiver before using medicinal mushroom during pregnancy, just to be on the safe side. Anecdotally, Master Herbalist Ron Teeguarden reports of pregnant women in Asia seeking out the herb reishi as an immune builder for themselves and their foetus. From the book, Healing Thresholds, "Master Teeguarden spoke of "reishi babies," as he called them, babies whose mothers took reishi throughout pregnancy. I saw some of these children, older and newborn, and they appeared uniformly calm and focused. The infants had little or no inflammations on their face or hands, cried little, and appeared to take in their surroundings with incredible acuity." (Healing Thresholds: A Modern Journey into Taoist Health Philosophy, by Rehmannia Dean Thomas. pp. 180–189). There is also anecdotal evidence of chaga mushroom, astragalus and eucommia bark being used throughout pregnancy to support the developing foetus and the mother. Q. Are your products organic? A. ME products are Certified 100% Organic & we guarantee active compounds that have been verified through scientific analysis. Q. Can I take multiple products safely? A. Yes absolutely. There are synergies that can be beneficial when combining a variety of mushroom species. Q. Will your mushrooms make me hallucinate? A. No, they will not. If your looking for mushrooms that do, those are called Psilocybe Cubensis aka magic mushrooms - that which we do not supply. Medicinal mushrooms are NOT magic mushrooms (though there is some evidence they can be medicinal too). Medicinal mushrooms are some of the most prized in the world and unmatched in their ability to build immunity and adaptability. Q. Where is ME Mushrooms located? A. We are packaged and distributed out of our storefront in Medicine Hat Alberta, CANADA located at #555 2nd Street SE Q, How do mushrooms support immune function? A. The answer if found and best explained with what are called "Beta glucans". They function like a lock and key. The beta glucans found in mushrooms are large and complex long-chain molecules. What sets certain beta glucans apart are their unique side-branching patterns. Just like a key and lock, the beta glucan compounds in mushrooms must “fit” perfectly with cellular receptor sites to support the immune system. By binding to receptor points on cells important to the immune system, the beta glucan polysaccharide compounds can have a positive effect on your immune cells & mental health. Each individual mushroom species contributes a variety of beta glucan molecular structures. When you combine several species, you multiply the number of immune cell receptor sites that may be activated (available by using our superblends which contain more than one type of mushroom). While beta glucans have been the most studied component, mushrooms contain many other bioactive compounds and proteins that support immune function including
Q. How Mushrooms Support a Healthy Gut and Digestion A. Supporting healthy immune function isn't the only thing mushrooms can potentially do for you. Mushrooms’ complex nutritional matrix of nutrients, dietary fiber and fungal enzymes has been shown to support healthy digestion and gastrointestinal tract function. Mushrooms that include the extra-cellular digestive enzymes are a source of a variety of enzymes that can help promote optimal digestive function. As you will find using ME Mushrooms, how a mushroom is processed affects its contribution to your health, too. A healthy solid connection Between Your Gut, Brain, and Immune Function starts in your gastrointestinal tract. Most people don’t realize that 80 percent of your immune system lies in your gastrointestinal tract.These two systems are connected via the vagus nerve, the tenth cranial nerve that runs from your brain stem down to your abdomen. This nerve explains why your gut and your brain influence each other so powerfully. And that explains why your intestinal health can affect your mental and neurological health. ME products into your daily diet is an effective way to naturally optimize your gut flora, support your immune system & increase your brain health, too. Q. How do I know they will work for me? A. Trust ME, these mushrooms may not be the "magic mushrooms" but they sure can work like magic when used consistently. Mushrooms are powerful healing agents that work in synergy with the bodies entire systematic layout. You wont know until you try!
