The Ancient Wisdom of Chaga
Our awareness is increasing everyday about the natural healing miracles to be found in the forest. One such miracle is the ancient Birch tree fungus known as Chaga.
The Birch mushroom has been dated in fossil form back to the Cretaceous period. It grows widespread over the northern hemisphere.
Almost every part of the Birch Tree has healing properties. Ancient peoples have a long history of using Birch for its medicinal properties for thousands of years.
Often mistaken for birch polypore mushrooms like the birch bracket or razor strop which thrive only on dead birch trees and tree trunks, The birch tree mushroom grows on birch trees and forms a symbiotic relationship with living Birch.
The mycelial mass grows from within the heartwood of the birch. Helping to keep it's host alive while the tree keeps the fruiting body growing by sharing all its medicinal properties.
The mushroom itself is slow growing condensing an amazing amount of medicinal properties into itself from the Birch Tree. The conscious relationship between these two incredible natural wonders is truly magical.
Both the host Tree and the Mushroom give of their lives selflessly so that the other can live. These two incredible sacred beings who give selflessly so life can continue for others are deserving of our heartfelt thanks and respect. As conscious beings, we realize with humility the magnitude of this selfless process.
Understanding this unique relationship becomes especially important when harvesting.
The mushroom is rich in betulinic acid and used to make healing tea which is anti cancer, anti inflammatory and helps with blood sugar levels.
Intelligence is not based on how much knowledge we have. Intelligence is awareness and mindfulness of the intention we put forward in our lives which affect the lives of others.
This is the noble truth of the The Birch fungus known as Chaga.
