t is estimated that up to 80% of people in South Africa are infected with tuberculosis. TB is caused by the bacterium Mycobacterium tuberculosis, and is commonly referred to as ‘tubercle bacteria’. This disease is most often spread through coughing and sneezing in an enclosed public space like buses or small markets.
The common conventional treatment for tuberculosis is 6 months of high-powered antibiotics. Oftentimes, this is ineffective as the side effects associated with taking antibiotics for this long put people off using them for the required time-period.
Cordyceps medicinal mushrooms can help treat tuberculosis naturally by helping your body heal itself. Unlike antibiotics, these mushrooms are easily-tolerated and offer multiple health benefits beyond the treatment of TB.

Homocysteine is an amino acid that converts into two vitally important compounds; SAMe (S-adenosyl methionine) and glutathione.
SAMe increases the availability of the neurotransmitters serotonin and dopamine. These neurotransmitters are essential in the prevention of irritability, aggressive behavior, and depression. Low levels of these neurotransmitters increases risk of both suicidal and homicidal thoughts and behaviors.
Glutathione is an antioxidant that helps eradicate unstable oxygen molecules called free radicals. The antioxidant protection glutathione offers includes cancer prevention, immune system stabilization, anti-aging, cognitive repair, and mental health support.
Low glutathione levels play a major role in the development of bipolar disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, addictive behaviors, and schizophrenia.
So we need homocysteine to be able to convert into both SAMe and glutathione (GSH), and therefore maintain low levels of homocysteine (which is good-use it up.) But it cannot do this effectively without the correct nutrients, and will continue to accumulate in body tissues (which is bad).
If you’re suffering from any kind of autoimmune condition, it could be due to elevated homocysteine levels in your blood. Excessive homocysteine levels deplete your glutathione levels so severely your body no longer has the antioxidant protection it needs. Without this protection, you’re susceptible to the development of a wide variety of infections. Over time, your immune system weakens as it struggles to protect you without necessary support.
New legislation would prevent the FDA from denying appropriate experimental drugs from dying patients. Action Alert!
