A teeny turkey tail post

turkey tailA short-short as I scramble around getting ready for physical therapy.

Starting another piece on the colors of nature….or something like that, and the first section is on the beautiful turkey tail fungus.


You don’t need a shotgun to hunt this turkey tail, but a sharp eye to appreciate the color it gives to the winter landscape.

And this fungus is not only beautiful, it’s one of nature’s medical powerhouses

It targets chronic illnesses, including many types of cancers. Studies have even shown that turkey tail can regenerate damaged bone marrow.

As well as treating human cancers, it is also used in veterinary medicine to treat canine cancer.

It also reduces inflammation throughout the body, fights viral infections and diseases such as herpes and hepatitis, lessens the side effect of chemotherapy and radiation and even increases stamina and energy.

Unfortunately, it’s too though to eat, but it’s been used as a tea as early as the 15th century during the Ming Dynasty in China.

As I get older -- and I'm 70 now -- I seem to find more and more that nature is the true source of peace, inspiration and, most of all, the truth the passeth understanding. Though my knowledge is sketchy and superficial, I wanted to share it while I can.
