Hey everyone! Just sliding into the comments to reiterate that when it comes to mental health, you have to do what helps you! If you need medication, you should absolutely begin that journey of finding the right prescription that works for you. If you're not ready for medication or feel some kind of way about medication, there are holistic remedies that may be worth checking out. These Reishi extract powders from Four Sigmatic worked for me, but do consult with a naturopath or do your research before trying anything. More than anything, I reccommend therapy to anyone who is struggling. Every person's road to recovery is different, and there is no judgement here only love

I have a lot of experience with reishi and i would recommend getting the raw form of it in slices and boil a tea for 2 hours to break it down its like wood u can drink it evryday it works really fast for anxiety it gives u a meditative state, i love using it for coffe just replace the water with reishi tea and it will negate all negative side effects of coffe no crash! And even taste good. Reishi works differently as a tincture also when extracted with alchohol. But i would not recommend ingesting powder form due to products for reishi capsules seem expensive and less effective sometimes even harsh on the liver

I really thought you were going to try the "drug"mushroom. That has actually been proven to help with anxiety and mental health.
i Believe your lies
Just remember that the more shrooms you eat more anxiety you will have.

Did anyone else try this and get super light headed? ☹️ I drank about half a mug and a few minutes later felt flushed and floaty. I wish you could buy single packets to try before committing to a whole box. Now I’m stuck with a $30+ box of tea that I’m too afraid to drink. 🤦‍♀️

Hi Ladylike! I have subscribed to your channel for a while now, as I am sure hundreds of thousands of other women have! I appreciate that a lot of your videos have a strong mental health basis! I was wondering if you ladies can make a video about the post-college/uni hustle. statistically there is a large portion of graduates who are depressed. I am sure a video like this may help a lot of young women who have high expectations while studying, that are almost crushed when they cannot get the job they spent years studying for. I really hope this comment gets noticed, I feel like it will help a lot of people.

There have been actual scientific studies on "shrooms" and they are actually being explored as a treatment for anxiety and depression. Now, the suggestions right now are microdosing so you wouldn't get high but the research is actually pretty promising

I was wondering if you ladies would be able to do a video on bulletproof coffee... you know the coffee that has grass-fed butter to help kick start the day... I am finding that during the day I can drink 6 shots of espresso, an energy drink, take 2 no-doz pills... and am still looking for that kick of energy that most people get when taking just one of those... I can also go throughout the day with zero caffeine and have the same level of energy... This idea was just a thought kind of piggy backing off of this mushroom idea...

This is interesting I’m not against it there definitely can be science involved, but I would like to see peer reviewed scholarly sources with actual scientific data before I would honestly trust that it’s not pseudoscience. I think herbs are cool though and I would love to learn more about them.

I take CBD and it has never made me drowsy unless it’s bed time. It’s the only thing that’s helped my anxiety significantly without prescriptions. It helps me stay calm, plan and execute my day without stress, going out is easier, getting dressed is a cinch and sleep is amazing and restful, waking up in the morning is easy and enjoyable! I’ve tried the mushroom cocoas but never everyday for a month so maybe I’ll add that into my routine.

Hi Devin! I just watched this video and it really hit home to how I feel about my anxiety. What you said in your car about multiple thoughts running through your mind: that's me 95% of the time. I really appreciate you talking about your mental health and making it relevant to those of us struggling daily. Thank you so much!

Caffeine is an obvious anxiety trigger. By eliminating caffeine from your diet it can change your anxiety levels drastically. Why would you put something that can drastically heighten anxiety (caffeine) in a drink with ingredients to help lower anxiety?

I'll be honest, I'm a little disappointed that this isn't a discussion of the other kind of shroom. Especially since they're currently running studies on how mushrooms and how they help with anxiety and depression. Therapists aren't really allowed to talk about them as an option because they're currently illegal, but they will know about them and might be willing to discuss. www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/320636.php

I clicked on this because I'm a mushroom hunter. I use chaga almost every day as a cold drink/ energy drink. I don't use reishi as much. It tastes horrible. I do add it , as a tincture to my chaga juice every now and then. Chaga , reishi and many mushrooms are immune boosting too. If you live in the north you can get to the woods you can find your own reishi and chaga. It's not easy , but it is fun , ( if you like the woods). You can also buy both from people like me. I sell both chaga and reishi on ebay , as well as hundreds of other people. Generally a pound of reishi sells for around $25 US. The box of reishi she bought was maybe 1 ounce and probably cost $10 or more. Chaga sells for around $10 per pound. Ground chaga at a health food store will probably run you a hundred a pound. I not looking for customers just want to let people know. Good mushrooms don't cost that much. Reishi season starts mid june , good luck.

I like ladylike and their videos, however I've never been irked so much by a video to comment negatively. That vocal fry is just such a tired trope, I usually can ignore it, but somehow that "mushroom expert" woman, using hers to reinforce her alleged/questionable "health" tips just set me off. Also its herbs, the "h" isn't silent, I know Americans don't pronounce it and again I tend to ignore it, but it was mispronounced so obnoxiously in this video that again it set me off. On another note I'm not sure if it's cultural appropriation (doubtful?), at least I don't think so but it would be nice to have actual Asians or Asian-Americans explain the benefits of the things/ingredients they use in their food predominantly like Ghee, dates and that type of mushroom. End of rant.

I went from 22 "conventional" medications down to 3... I replaced or got rid of so many things because prescription medication was NOT working for me. I've seen too many specialists and had more pokes and XRays and CT Scans and MRIs... I'm surprised I'm not mutating. I do NOT think YoungLiving Essential oils or doTERRA can cure cancer and AIDS and schizophrenia. I do think conventional medicine has it's place. But we tend to be our best advocate as a patient and a healthcare worker. I STRONGLY recommend if you're going to go down a more holistic approach that you do a lot of UNBIASED research and stay in string communication with your doctors. There's definitely a reason Ayurvedic and Chinese and Herbalism has been around so long and that a lot of our conventional medications come from some of these formulations. If it works for you, that's awesome. I feel pretty fortunate that I've found things that work for me, especially after all the health issues I've dealt with. I can't stress the unbiased research though... Because there are some scary untrue things being published and supported that can be very dangerous to your health.

Hi Devan! I don't know if you or anyone from the team reads comments or not, but I'm very curious to know if the recipe that your naturopath gave you was a change from your normal caffeine intake in the morning before you started making the mushroom latte. I know caffeine is SO VERY MUCH tied to spikes in anxiety, and it'd be cool to know if that was also an impacting factor in addition to the mushrooms. Great video, and thank you for all the disclaimers encouraging people to talk to a professional before adapting any kind of new regiment!
