Chaga: King of the Polypores
David Wolfe at The Longevity Now Conference Costa Mesa, California
There have been a lot of questions asked about raw foods this weekend. It's a very important subject. This is my experience, and here is what I believe is really what we should be eating. There are three categories of food that are important. The first category is: food. That would include everything that you eat that is macronutrient-oriented — major protein, major fat, and major sugar/carbohydrate. That category used to be the only category, and that was your diet. For example: fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, seaweeds, grasses, sprouts, and flowers would fit into that category. Even fermented foods would fit into that category. Fermented foods have a little bit of medicinal quality, but ultimately do not have that much when we really look at the overall picture. In fact, a lot of that food — whether it is plant food or animal food — has been domesticated. And that means that all of the medicine has been removed. There is a second category, and that second category is your insurance policy — to make sure that you are actually getting everything that you should have gotten from food. That includes superfoods, that includes supplements, and that includes vitamins, like vitamin B12. That is category two. Category three is your medicine. I get this every single day: "My aunt has fungus in her toe. What should we do?" "My uncle has tinnitus in his ear. What should we do?" "A friend of mine got sick ten years ago and never was able to get his throat cleared out and still has scruffy stuff in the back. What should we do?" "I have a friend who had a tooth infection and it's still wonky two years later and they don't know what to do." And we are all susceptible to all of those things because we have never really eaten medicine. You’ve heard the phrase: "Let food be your medicine." The other half says: "Let medicine be your food." So what we are talking about in the third category is herbalism. Let medicine — herbs — be your food. Herbs are very important because they give us immune system. Otherwise, we are just hoping

we won’t get the bubonic plague. We are guessing, we are hoping. "I did wheatgrass enemas. I am hoping I am not going to get the bubonic plague." This is a super-important area of knowledge, and this is the reason why we do these events the way that we do them, and why we have such a focus on herbalism. Because, otherwise, we are going to be left kind of stranded, believing, "Hey, I did a wheatgrass shot," or "I ate an avocado and that's enough medicine.” It's not. Those are just macronutrients, really. What we want are real medicinal properties — the beta-glucans and the lanostanes that are found in the medicinal mushrooms, for example; the alkaloids that are found in ginseng, the ginsenocides; the alkaloids that are found in astragalus, the astragalosides. Those are medicines. When we take medicine and turn it into our food, then we have really got something. Look at the whole thing: "Let food be our medicine and medicine be our food." It's an important phrase to live by. I assume that it’s true for everybody here. Whatever your diet is, you're doing the best you can. You are already doing better than 99.99% of the whole planet on diet. You're doing everything you can. You are buying organic, you are going to farmer's markets, you are buying tiger figs, you are eating grapes, you're doing bananas, mangos, and strawberries; you're doing whatever you can. And you are trying to figure out: should it be plant food always, or should it be animal food? Basically, what it comes down to is this: your calorie sources should be well thought out and based on your metabolism. This is hinting back to what I was talking about yesterday. If you are going to cleanse, then you want to go all plant and strip away calorie sources to cleanse your body. But you can't do that forever. I have known people who after two years of doing the Ann Wigmore diet looked like they were coming out of a concentration camp. In the early days, people would tell me, "I don't want to look like that." Do you remember those days? There is a point where it goes too far. Then we have to backtrack and go, "Okay, what do my calorie sources actually need to be?" For some people, the calorie sources need to be baked yam and sweet potato and rice, but everything else should be plants and should be raw. When you are dealing with a raw calorie source, that's that; everything else is raw food, if that is going to be your diet. If people are into

Chaga: King of the Polypores by David Wolfe April 2011 This is actually an autobiographical story. Fascinating book. that chaga has these properties: it's an herbal adaptogen. an immune modulator. I think it's a great book. He chose chemotherapy with chaga and survived. It will be like. The Cancer Ward was published in the English language in 1968 and became a sensation all across Europe.

His wife has been drinking chaga tea every day of her pregnancy. We have found that we don't need herb number 1. betulin is number one. Betulin is that white stuff in the birch bark. The Russian research since 1955 found that radioactive isotopes that are present in chemotherapy degrade in the presence of melanin. What is betulin? Betulin is the white powdery stuff that is in birch. This is appropriate for the situation that we are in currently — radioactive debris in the environment. betulinic acid and lupeol— which are all. basically. Whenever we find little white spots on us — maybe vitiligo. The first thing is betulin. So it's like chlorophyll. and it absorbs it and deactivates it. we're not going there. and then we need to megadose on that one. or something like that — that shows our body is not able to push out all the nutrients to the skin. Chaga takes those substances and leverages it against the cancer. There is no threat to any kind of life. Melanin. It takes radiation from the Sun.

Chaga is number one for antioxidants in the mushroom kingdom. My feeling is that the future of medicine is all about the essential sugars. Glucose is one of them. All Rights Reserved. We could grow medicinal mushrooms in such a way to increase the amount of ormus — the strange matter. "Wait a second.

Look at what is going on with the red Copyright© 2011 David Wolfe and New Horizon Health. and in certain superherbs — like goji berry and astragalus — but they are rarely achieved just by eating food. These essential sugars are found in medicinal mushrooms. What do we know about those pigments of color? Melanin is part of that complex. you are probably thinking. We rarely get enough of them to activate all the essential sugars that we require. arabano-galactose is another. because that polysaccharide — unlike glucose. Look at chlorella. more beautiful. This is one of the super nutrients of the future. or that much. Inc. fucose is another. That's actually where my research is at. and I think he's right. I want to digress for a second to talk about polysaccharides. I have been researching this for 17 years. There are eight essential sugars. if you have seen that before. I think the aloe vera gel. Look at chaga. which is a simple sugar — has a bunch of different twists and turns and bells and whistles on it. And this is an area to look into. That’s where the ormus is. It's a polysaccharide. there are lanostane triterpenes that are part of that complex. the weird minerals — that are in the polysaccharides that modulate our immune system. I don't know what other people do for fun. and that's what gives that fiery red to reishi mushroom. Antioxidants.

It's fungi. "Oh my God. Streptomycin. Tetracycline. Inc. this is called the sclerotium. The part of the medicinal mushroom that comes out of the tree is actually the reproductive organ.

It's a reproductive organ. then you get what Paul Stamets. or the sclerotia. calls a host defense. So chaga is very.

What we had when I was up here with Chef Franky — that sclerotium — that was just broken off a tree. That's actually how Daniel Vitalis' chaga extract is made. So they are taking the water. All of that is in there. but the beta-glucans and the other polysaccharides don't come out. crush it to a powder. then you get the magic. then they boil it off and then they take that and then they put that in a container of 15 to 20 percent grape alcohol. What's the biggest challenge in herbalism? Compliance. you get the beta-glucans out. a little bit of maple syrup and a little bit of spring water. If something tastes awful? No way. That's a lot of herbalism. you are going activate more aspects of the polysaccharides of the chaga.
