I wanted to ask about the frequency and correct (current) use of chinese caterpillars and glossy gloss capsules in the case of a person who already has health problems with lymph nodes (sleep, underneath, subclavian, 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 been sufficiently dedicated to adaptogens. But you're saying that you're taking Chinese chinese capsules, and I'm afraid these capsules are something other than real TCM medicine known as Chinese caterpillars. Chinese caterpillars are among the extremely expensive mushrooms, 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 with the product grown in vitro in TČM
Growing in vitro in rare or slowly growing mushrooms greatly reduces the price, but especially in the caterpillar the final 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 host is a butterfly caterpillar of the family of the warthog, which, after being infected by a caterpillar, lands a few centimeters in the ground and dies there. Her body hardens and grows from the stem of a caterpillar protruding above the ground and producing spores to infect other caterpillars. In vitro cultivation of this parasite, host and environment interaction process can not be imitated in any way. Even if we make a caterpillar in the lab to create a sprig of sponge 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 TČM system, 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 šia cao .
Contemporary use of glossy and Chinese caterpillar ...
... with the above reservations without any problems. The quality glossy glossy gloss is cheaper compared to the Chinese quality caterpillar, but it is definitely better to use a real powdery pie or a concentrate made from real puppies. The use is the same as if you used the two mushrooms independently. Regarding the frequency, 100% of the glossy glossy rhinoplasty will be 1-3g a day (eg 1-3 capsules 3 times a day). For caterpillars, follow the manufacturer's recommendation if none is, so take 1g daily. 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.
