"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

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.

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.
