Chatter: Mushrooms and IOP
I just heard back from my eye doctor about my use of mushroom tinctures, which were definitely lowering my eye pressure, but also lowering my blood pressure, She said to stop taking them. Too bad.
I have just started taking the PEAmium and am cautiously optimistic about it. I was taking 10-15 drops of three different mushrooms;, Lion's Mane, Cordyceps and Reishi. The last one in particular was especially helpful with my chronic insomnia. My eye pressure went down about 3 points sometimes a bit more; my resting heart rate was about 8-10 points lower, with much quicker recovery even after climbing stairs. I wasn't taking my blood pressure, just monitoring the resting heart rate. Hope that helps.
And for that matter, I wonder whether using Curcumin, which also lowers blood pressure, would be equally contraindicated?
Once again, thank you Dave for your thoughtful response. I am also in the midst of Covid and it has been taking a long time to get rid of the symptoms, so there are extenuating circumstances. I will play around with it a bit more to see what the culprit is. Also within the last two months, have started meditating 2x a day so I guess I have several other variables to consider. I need to heal from the Covid first as I just don't have the bandwidth to be too aggressive with my personal testing.
I read that as well. The Cordyceps I am using is the militaris.
