This inspired a holistic healing journey where my body was the test tube, the experimental vessel, and mother nature’s finest ingredients were the antidotes. After a year and a half of visiting specialists, tinkering with holistic remedies and superfoods, and experimenting with diets on all ends of the spectrum from paleo to veganism, I felt much healthier overall but my autoimmune still persisted...until I discovered medicinal mushrooms.
After several months of continued good diet and exercise, plus the integration of medicinal mushrooms into my daily routine, I felt energetically rejuvenated and to my surprise, I had healed my condition without pills or procedures. I got my most valuable asset back - my health.
This sparked my love affair with the fungi kingdom and my holistic approach to health. Although, the downside was that I didn’t love the user experience along my healing journey. Often, I found myself lugging around heavy jars of mushroom powders (going through airport security was always interesting), and constantly searching for hot water to mix my shroomy, and often clumpy concoctions with. It was always a bit of a messy procedure. I sought to create a cleaner and more delicious means of ingesting these medicinal mushrooms, which ultimately inspired the birth of Üphoric Urth.
