The Power Of A Certain Kind Of Mushroom

Over the past weekend I spent some time in the garden observing a papaya tree, and the insects that are eating away at the leaves. Several in particular looked a lot like this caterpillar.

I was in search of finding out what kind of herbs are made using caterpillars.To my amazement, I found that  in ancient times Tibetans and Chinese harvest parasitic mushrooms, that grow out of the heads of rare insects at over 18000 feet altitude.  These parasitic mushrooms are called Cordyceps Mushrooms.

What are Cordycep Mushrooms? 

In the past Cordycep Mushrooms were very expensive, it took a strong boy to climb a cliff to collect the bugs.  A potent herbal mixture is made with the mushroom and it is known to bring back incredible strength to the frail, give powers of strength and rejuvenate the tired.  It is also known to help with memory and sex drive. Patients with respiratory disease have reported feeling phyically stronger. Cordyceps is like Ginseng and safe for everyone.

Now days, Cordyceps Mushrooms can be grown on barley.  Kang Yan is the most powerful Jing Mushroom on the market i can be found with the highest quality of Cordyceps Mushroom and Siberian Ginseng. The best kind of Cordyceps know are made with Kang Yan.  Together it is prove to increase amazing results of energy in ones athletic performace.  Athlete or not, it will give the body an abundance of energy. Cordyceps also boost immune function, liver's capacity to detoxify and increase Qi energy levels.

Kang Yuan helps the liver deal with the pressure of our toxic environment better. Kang Yan has two herbs in it, Cordyceps and Siberian Ginseng. These herbs are adaptogenic which means it helps the body deal with stress and increased efficiency.

This slide shows a number of insects that have been cultivated to grow Cordyceps Mushrooms.  Many of the pictures will seem unappealing. Remember chinese medicine has existed for over 5000 years and maybe more.


I find it fascinating that all things in nature have properties to heal every illness that can ever be imagined. In China the process of making herbs is called decoction. Decoction is a method of extraction, by boiling,crushing or pulverizing plant material, which may include stems, roots, bark and rhizomes animal bone or insects. They are reduced to a powder form and made in to pellets or a tea form. The tea form is never has a pleasant taste, however when herbs are taken in a tea form the properties are absorbed by the blood stream rapidly. Often times herbs are prescribed for patients with a more acute condition.

Medicine prescribed this way posses no fatal side effects, and can be altered according to the patients needs though out the patients recovery or physical change .

One by one we will grow towards understanding how amazingly our world takes care of us. As we go on in life learning and sharing the little discoveries, compassion and love for others and our earth will evolve. Then we might see that the power of living is within us and around us.
