I wanted to ask about the frequency and correct (current?) Use of chinese caterpillar and shiny pollen capsules in the case of a person who already has health problems with the lymph nodes (sleep, underneath, subcuticle, inguinal) enlarged on the left side of the body after exclusion of all infectious and Common illness, or unclear origin, lasting 3 years. Thank you
To the Chinese caterpillar
The Chinese caterpillars ( Cordyceps sinensis ) have not made enough of the adaptogens for the moment. But you say you are taking Chinese chinese capsules and I am afraid that these capsules are something other than a real TCM medicine known as Chinese caterpillars. Chinese caterpillars are among the extremely expensive sponges, which is related to its cultivation. Prices of loose Chinese caterpillars are currently around 50Kč / g in Taiwan. I know that cheap "Chinese caterpillars" are sold in Europe in the form of preparations made from mycelium or primordial, ie grown in vitro .
The caterpillar is not replaceable in the TČM with the product grown in vitro
Growing in vitro in rare or slowly growing fungi significantly reduces the price, but especially in caterpillars, the resulting product is not the same as a real fungus. The Chinese caterpillar is a parasitic fungus, which is also used with the body of the host. The caterpillar is a butterfly caterpillar of the family of the cranks, which, after being infected by a caterpillar, lands a few centimeters in the ground and dies there. Her body hardens and grows from a stem of a caterpillar protruding above the ground and producing spores to infect other caterpillars. In vitro cultivation of parasite, host, and environment interactions can not be imitated. Even if we make a caterpillar in the lab to make a spice of mushroom fibers on the Petri dish, it's uninteresting from the TČM's point of view. The TCM caterpillar is called tong cóng şia cao - "winter worm, summer plant" . It is through the interconnectedness of the "plant" parasite and the animal host that the "exceptionally good balance of yin and yang", which, according to the magical system of TČM, explains the healing effects of the caterpillar. Artificially cultivated mycelium and primordium do not have these properties. I'm not saying it can not be effective, but from the point of view of the TCM, it's something quite different from the tong cóng ša cao .
Contemporary use of glitter and chinese caterpillar ...
... with the above reservations without any problems. The quality glossy glossy gloss is cheaper compared to the good Chinese caterpillar, but it is definitely better to use a real powdered rhubarb or a concentrate made from real puppies. The use is the same as if you used the two mushrooms independently. As far as the frequency is concerned, 100% of the glossy glossy gland will be 1-3g a day (eg 1-3 capsules 3 times a day). For the caterpillar, follow the manufacturer's recommendation if none is, so take eg 1g per day. And if you have to buy a real caterpillar, you should also find the means to visit the TCM center, where you will face better recommendations than me at a distance.
