Chaga Thunder Mushroom Tea $ 24.00
The Story I was in the woods harvesting morel mushrooms almost 10 years ago. And I was a bit lost on my way back out, so I took a short cut and looked up before I almost ran into a birch tree. And there it was. Sheer beauty, a black crusted clump on a tree as if the birch tree had been stamped with Mother Earth's seal of approval. I had to find out what it was. I was excited and out of breath as I ran back to my car a 1/4 mile away. I went home and identified it as Chaga Mushroom (Latin: Inonotus obliquus, Ojibwe: Skitagaan). I went back out to harvest it and that was the beginning of almost a decade of harvesting this wonderful medicine. Oh the adventures we could share. Chaga Mushroom is a wild mushroom hot tea drink harvested sustainable from wild white Birch tree in pure Midwest and Ontario Forests by or under the direction Herbal Lodge Owner Nathan Wright a certified mushroom expert. Our name of Chaga Thunder came from several birch trees stuck by lighten. As a Native American I have great respect and reverence for such things. I had to leave it, and let it continue to grow. I am sure it stays where I left it hidden in the woods. Awaiting the next bolt of life force. I found this to be the center of the area we harvest from. We go there often and make offerings for our harvests. May I share our blessings and invite you to enjoy a wonderful cup?

We are determined to help our communities find healthier solutions to their modern problems, and bark tea is one of our best natural remedies! Among the most complex subjects in the realm of pain, neuropathy and related nervous system disorders can arise from a multitude of internal and external factors. Unlike nociceptive pain that results from tissue damage or inflammation, neuropathic pain can be harder to pinpoint and treat. Unfortunately, many individuals suffering from neuropathy and other nervous-system-related pain conditions are poorly supported by modern medicine. While there will always be a place for interventions such as physical therapy and certain pharmaceuticals, many nervous system pains can greatly benefit from a more natural approach to sustainable nerve pain relief. Especially when facing nerve pain issues that may be untreatable or require a lifetime of medication, natural products that provide noticeable relief can be a great way to reduce medication dependence and other costly pain management strategies. From skeletal and joint issues that impede nerve function to conditions like diabetes, multiple sclerosis, and infections that can damage nerve cells, the causes of nerve pain are rarely solved by a single pain management plan. Since nerve pain can arise from such varied causes, it is essential to consider nerve pain remedies that promote holistic wellness. What Medical Conditions Does Mushkeewatig Nerve Tea Support?
