Description

Product Description

In The Fungal Pharmacy, noted herbalist Robert Rogers introduces readers to more than 300 species of medicinal mushrooms and lichens found in North America. These fungi, Rogers explains, have the capacity to heal both the body and, through the process of myco-remediation, the planet itself. Throughout the book, he documents their success in optimizing the immune system and treating a wide range of acute and chronic diseases, including cardiovascular, respiratory, and liver problems, blood sugar disorders, cancer, and obesity.

Entries discuss the mushroom or lichen’s medicinal traits and properties, including active chemical components, preparation methods (including extracts, essences, and essential oils), and historical as well as modern-day usage. Two hundred full-color photos and thorough descriptions make identification easy for the reader. Rogers also delves into the cultural, religious, and literary significance of each mushroom, featuring fascinating tidbits about each one’s etymology and history.

Review

" The Fungal Pharmacy is a great book for anyone interested in the medicinal properties of mushrooms. In this rapidly developing field, I am delighted to recommend this book to both amateurs and professionals. Robert Rogers has made a significant contribution … highly recommended!” — Paul Stamets, author of Mycelium Running

"Robert Rogers is amazingly knowledgeable of the mushrooms and other wild fungi of the Pacific Northwest , and eager to share his knowledge. Doctor, heal thyself—learn your mushrooms and get out into the woods!"  —Britt Bunyard, publisher and editor-in-chief of Fungi magazine

“Robert''s knowledge of plants and fungi can make one''s head spin with medicinal, traditional, and culinary uses.” —Martin Osis, president of the Alberta Mycological Society

The Fungal Pharmacy is the first book in the field to attempt to understand the energetics and personality of the medicinal mushrooms rather than relying solely on their pharmacological profiles.  By ''energetics'' I mean the basic pathological patterns of the mushroom, such as hot or cold, damp or dry.  By ‘personality’ I mean the indications peculiar to a mushroom that come from an intimate working knowledge of a medicine. This method represents the high road for the intuitive practitioner.” —Matthew Wood, author of The Earthwise Herbal

"An extensively researched and comprehensive synthesis of traditional knowledge and contemporary scientific data. An invaluable resource to anyone with an interest in traditional medicine or simply a fascination with lichens."  —Heath O''Brien, PhD
 
"Packed with information, The Fungal Pharmacy is a ''must-read'' for all who are interested in medicinal mushrooms. Highly readable, the book is useful for students, biologists, naturalists, and the general public. A most welcome addition to the field of ethnomycology.” —Roland Treu, associate professor, Athabasca University

“The Fungal Pharmacy is a ''must'' reference for mycologists, mushroom hunters, and practitioners of natural health care. … Full color photos pack a survey of clinical studies, homeopathic uses, global folklore and cultural references, and more. [ The Fungal Pharmacy] is the first book in the field that investigates the pathological patterns of medicinal mushrooms rather than their pharmacological profiles. … There''s nothing as extensive currently in print." Midwest Book Review

If was just rating the content of this book it would easily be five stars, but the quality of the book I received was so poor I had to give a one. The pictures I have attached are after owning this book for ONE day. The first time I opened the book the binding of the cover separated from the pages and the spine tore. The pages are also not properly attached the the spine and are already separating.
This is honestly the worst binding I have ever seen on a book. If you are willing to take the time to repair the binding yourself, this book may still be worth getting. I am happy to add this book to my collection, but it is incredibly frustration to have to repair a brand new book the day I got it.

Extremely through information on the medicinal compounds in mushrooms. However, the book claims to give dosage and procedures for taking all the mushrooms it contains, but does not. Sometimes, you will read about the medicinal aspects of a particular mushroom, but won''t be given so much as a clue on how to use it.

This book definitely exceeded my expectations. This is the book that I had wanted to find but didn''t think existed. It covers everything.

It breaks down the appearance, locations to be found, how the mushrooms are cultivated, how they have been used throughout generations throughout different cultures around the world, a plethora of information regarding different studies that have been done by different governments and universities, medicinal uses, some advice on dosages, and sometimes even those comparisons between different delivery methods i.e. Tinctures powders capsules essence''s teas.

It''s an incredible book. I I would compare it to a textbook, or encyclopedia, or maybe a cookbook, but really it''s all of them just much easier to read, better looking, and easier to find and use information from.

A very well put together, excellent book.

This compendium of science and fascinating ethnobotany and pharmacology is dense with information. I can only read it for a half hour or so at a time, but it is answering so many of the questions I''ve had abut fungus. Yes, I had questions about fungus...it is fascinating, as is this book. Clearly a labor of love, but scientific and thorough.

Loving this book! The only part of it that I would recommend in a revised copy would be an index of medical conditions that you could look up. There is a graph in the back, but an actual index of diseases that there have been research on with the page numbers to follow through would be incredible. But I love this book, I love the pictures, the history, and the research. Well done!

Excellent price for priceless knowledge. You not owning this book is justification enough to purchase it now. You had enough money for that dozen Krispy Kreme Donuts - now make money for the last book about fungus you''ll ever need. Textbook quality.

Ok so full disclosure I maybe a little biased - I have always thought Robert was a brilliant teacher and by far the best employer I ever had. But that being said this book is a wonderful combination of science and the spiritual aspect of the nature kingdom and our part in it. If that''s your thing too, just get it, if not this is a perfect intro into that world. Robert doesn''t talk or write about something he hasn''t fully researched.
