Mushrooms as Medicine?
Mushrooms have been used in Eastern medicine for centuries, treating everything from asthma to gout. The food is now being marketed in the West as part of a medicinal regimen to prevent cancer, and/or stimulate higher brain function. While there are relatively few trials that have been conducted in humans to support these claims, there are studies that have confirmed the food’s anti-tumor properties.



This episode on our podcast Redefining Medicine features David Perlmutter, MD, FACN: world-renowned neurologist, bestselling author, and researcher.

The child of an accomplished neurosurgeon, Dr. Perlmutter has helped spearhead the concept of preventable Alzheimer’s, and the link between gluten and neurological conditions.
