Cordyceps are parasitic fungi that grow on insects. There is much more to them and further information can be found in the "must see" video link below.

You'll be amazed!:

Cordycep Video (http://thealchemyforum.com/clips/Cordyceps.wmv)

I threw the video together so quality isn't great and the final clip you may need to increase the volume.

I didn't realise that, at the time of starting this thread, there was already a thread on Cordyceps:

Cordyceps Fungi ( http://forum.alchemyforums.com/showthread.php?2005-Cordyceps-Fungi)

But as the links in that thread are dead then this hasn't been a complete waste. :)

Although Cordyceps are not Entheogens they are that weird they may as well be grouped with them. Below are some other threads that relate to Entheogens, beliefs about them, their properties and some of their nutritional values:

I've taken cordyceps now for couple of years in the mornings. I did notice a boost to my immune system. Flu in general doesn't seem to come out, or develop fully, even if surrounded by people infected.

I take a cocktail of chaga, shiitake, lion's mane, cordyceps, and reishi. It's part of my, primarily, raw diet.

Do you take the cultivated Cordycep or the natural Krisztian?

After watching the documentary Tibetan El Dorado, I went with the cultivated one. Certainly may not be as powerful as the "natural" but I did find it strong enough. With the "natural" you never really know if it's the real deal or not. Because I've been raw for a good 15 years, I'm quite sensitive, my digestion.

What do you mean by "raw"?

Exactly what the word implies: eating only fruits, nuts (of various kinds), vegetables, herbs, mushrooms (in powdered form).

......i have had a fair amount of experience with the medicinal mushrooms.......and can say fro experience that the wildcrafted mushrooms are almost always preferable to the cultivated varieties......

....cordyceps is okay......however due to the involved cultivation method that leads to a high price and general scarcity......i would recommend a reishi or chaga....reishi in particular has very good affects and is highly revered for good reason.......

I was taking the Cordycep mushrooms (cultivated) every day for about two weeks before I took part in the Ayahuasca workshop in Peru. So as to avoid contradictions I stopped taking them while away.

I started taking them again when I returned and they now make me feel sick. This has got progressively worse as time has gone on and I now get very nauseous and purge from the other end with extreme stomach pain.

I cant understand why I didn't get this before and do now. I have since found that one of the properties of Cordyceps is as a MOAI as is Ayahuasca. I wonder if this has some connection.

I do have a bad cold so that may have something to do with it.

I eat the Cordyceps sprinkled on corn flakes, but that's how I was eating them before.

If anyone knows what's happening I would love to hear an explanation.

Edit: I didn't notice much in the two weeks taking cordyceps, but I did feel in good health and spirits. I have reached exactly the weight I wanted to achieve, and this goal has avoided me for quite some time, but I expect this to be a result of the Ayahuasca ceremonies.

Thanks

Maybe your body wants to eliminate toxins? Various symptoms that come with stomach-flu.

And/Or, it may be that you haven't listened to the messages of the journey you undertook in Peru. Doing things in your daily life that covers up feelings like depression? Repressed emotions can and do irritate nerves aggressively in the stomach.

Thanks Kriztian.

I will take your comments on board.

The cold I mention before has turned into full blown flu with all the aches and pains.

......hard to say for certain......but if i were to hazard a guess.....it would be an auto immune thing.......maybe lay of the immune stimulating herbs for awhile......
