Newly updated and expanded, MycoMedicinals: an Informational Treatise on Mushrooms includes answers to frequently asked questions and an extensive bibliography. 96 pages, softcover.


Scientists have only recently confirmed what ancient cultures have known for centuries: mushrooms have within them some of the most potent medicines found in nature. Long viewed as tonics, we now know that their cellular constituents can profoundly improve the quality of human health. Differing from most pharmaceuticals, these healing agents have extraordinarily low toxicity, even at high doses….For physicians, naturopaths, herbalists and lay people, medicinal mushrooms may well hold answers for many of today’s major health concerns. Increasingly, medicinal mushrooms are valued not only as adjuvant therapies to allopathic practices, but show promise for preventing diseases, including cancer. In this treatise, 17 of the more important mushroom species are described in detail noting latin species name, common names, distribution and natural habitats, known active constituents, form used, medicinal properties and the author’s comments on each species. The book also contains key reference articles specific to each species in their treatment of disease (with a special listing of activity against specific cancers). The book includes a section of commonly asked questions and an impressive listing of medical professionals who recommend medicinal mushrooms.

About the Author:

Paul Stamets has been a dedicated mycologist for over thirty-five years. Over this time, he has discovered and coauthored four new species of mushrooms, and pioneered countless techniques in the field of edible and medicinal mushroom cultivation. He received the 1998 "Bioneers Award" from The Collective Heritage Institute, and the 1999 "Founder of a New Northwest Award" from the Pacific Rim Association of Resource Conservation and Development Councils.

He has written five books on mushroom cultivation, use and identification; his books Growing Gourmet and Medicinal Mushrooms and The Mushroom Cultivator (coauthor) have long been hailed as the definitive texts of mushroom cultivation. Other works by Paul Stamets include Psilocybe Mushrooms and Their Allies (out of print), Psilocybin Mushrooms of the World, MycoMedicinals: an Informational Treatise on Mushrooms, and many articles and scholarly papers.

"In MycoMedicinals, An Informational Treatise on Mushrooms, fungal pioneer Paul Stamets summarizes the many unique uses for medicinal mushrooms in all possible forms (hot-water extraction, methanol, ethanol, and freeze-dried mycelium powder, etc.), all validated by scientific literature." David Wolfe - Best Selling Raw Food Author
