Shennong is my third submission to the history of natural medicine. Legendary ruler and Chinese hero Shennong lived over 5,00 years ago. He has not only been recognized for teaching the Chinese agriculture but also the use of herbal medicines. While credited with the use and discovery of many different herbs, he is most notably attributed to the use and promotion of tea leaves as a cure for a wide variety of ailments and poisons. In his quest for herbal knowledge he is rumored to have consumed samples of all the herbs he collected so he could experience and understand the plant on all levels. Many traditional chinese herbalist are still taught and practice this way.

Paul Stamets believes that mushrooms can save our lives, restore our ecosystems and transform other worlds.
Entrepreneurial mycologist Paul Stamets seeks to rescue the study of mushrooms from forest gourmets and psychedelic warlords. The focus of Stamets’ research is the Northwest’s native fungal genome, mycelium, but along the way he has filed 22 patents for mushroom-related technologies, including pesticidal fungi that trick insects into eating them, and mushrooms that can break down the neurotoxins used in nerve gas. How about fungi in place of vaccines??
There are cosmic implications as well. Stamets believes we could terraform other worlds in our galaxy by sowing a mix of fungal spores and other seeds to create an ecological footprint on a new planet.
