    My partner just took a local mushroom class, and returned with a fairly remarkable story of Alzheimer's reversal. The facilitator's father in law (or close non-family acquaintance) apparently had very advanced dementia, and was put on a regimen of Lion's Mane mushroom because it's purported beneficial effects on nerve and brain function. By the third month, very noticeable improvements began to occur, and continued in the following months until his Alzheimer's was completely reversed.

    Since so many of us are dealing with nerve and/or brain problems, I thought I'd introduce this topic on the forum, and share this story. I did a quick google search, and found a number of references to memory improvement, neurological support, and etc. Here's a link to a fairly brief article, followed by two paragraphs from the article below. This is something I hope to follow up on in the near future.

    Hi all,

    If you google around a bit, one can order special mushroom kits and grow mushrooms at home.

    for instance Shitaki's are $10 a lb in the grocery store, so might be worth it to grow them if one was going to eat them everyday.

    I haven't tried, but might be good for those on a budget and have a green thumb.
