Even before the science of anatomy, the Daoists, who created the meridian system (over thousands of years of observation and study), determined that the reishi mushroom enters your heart, liver and lungs. Some say that it also enters your kidney meridian.
Reishi addresses your jing (life force) your qi (energy), and your shen (spirit). In Chinese medicine, this is known as a “three treasure” herb that harmonizes body, mind and spirit.
Tonic Herbalists love this herb so much because it nourishes your heart and calms your shen. For me, it has had a profound affect on how I interpret stress. My experience with reishi is that I am completely grounded and centered regardless of the stress in my life.
Although the Daoists didn’t have knowledge of the chemical constituents of herbs they were investigating, new science completely supports these ancient observations. We are now discovering, on a scientific level, that the reishi mushroom has healing effects on each organ system that the Daoists suggested. To me, this is remarkable.
