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, 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 concerned with adaptogens. However, you are writing that you are taking Chinese chinese capsules and I am afraid that these capsules are anything but a real TCM medicine known as Chinese caterpillars. Chinese caterpillars are among the extremely expensive mushrooms, which is related to its cultivation. Prices of Chinese looms are currently in Taiwan around 50Kč / g. 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 host is a caterpillar of the butterfly family, which, after infection by the caterpillar, lands a few centimeters in the ground and dies there. Her body hardens and grows out of her, the stem of a caterpillar protruding above the ground and producing spores to infect other caterpillars. In vitro cultivation of parasite, host and environment interaction can not be imitated. Even if we make a caterpillar in the lab to create a spice of mushroom fibers on the Petri dish, it's uninteresting from the TČM's point of view. TČM caterpillar called tong cóng šia cao - "winter worm, summer plant" . It is precisely 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 do not say that it can not be effective, but from the point of view of the TCM, it is something quite different from the tong cóng šia cao .
Contemporary use of glitter and Chinese caterpillar ...
... with the above reservations without any problems. High quality glossy gloss is cheaper compared to a good Chinese 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. 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 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.
