One of the submissions in the Ask The Doctor series comes from one of our viewers. They say, “Hello. I would like to try your 7M, but I have Candida and have been told to avoid mushrooms. How do you feel about that?”

Well, that is a wonderful question and it’s actually a common misconception that if you are dealing with Candida, or if you consume functional medicinal mushrooms, that that will create a greater overgrowth of Candida. And I’m here to set the record straight that that is totally false.

The Opposite Effect, Actually

So mushrooms, while they’re in the fungi kind of kingdom, mushrooms are not mold, and mushrooms are not yeast. And those are two things that can contribute to the overgrowth of Candida or the development of Candida within your body.

So with that being said, mushrooms, functional mushrooms, categorically these are going to be mushrooms like shiitake, maitake, turkey tail, we’re going to see chaga in this category, as well as an assortment of other commonly consumed mushrooms that have polyspores as a part of their fruiting body. And basically, what that means is that is how we as humans would consume these fungi mushroom combinations in our daily diet or in supplemental form.

So while they’re polysporic, that does not lead to enhancing Candida overgrowth or causes Candida overgrowth. What that does, actually, is protects our body, protects our immune system, and helps the body fight Candida or yeast overgrowth or an over overwhelm of this unhealthy bacterial balance.

Functional Mushrooms Ward off Candida Overgrowth

So, I hope I’ve kind of allayed your concerns and addressed this common misconception that mushrooms, functional mushrooms specifically, have a powerful benefit for anybody who’s dealing with Candida. And when you consume the blend that we have here available in the 7M+, this has all of the right functional mushrooms to support your immune state, to help your body ward off a Candida overgrowth, and to help minimize the overwhelm of Candida systemically within your body.
