MUSHROOMS AND THEIR MEDICINAL EFFECTS
There are many books available about culinary use of mushrooms as well as about the possibility of their cultivation. This book will give you information about their medicinal effects in particular.
For each of more than thirty mushrooms, you will get a brief history of its use, its morphological description and distribution, possible related species and a more detailed description of the substances it contains and their medicinal effects, including the application in traditional Chinese medicine.
Their culinary use and possibilities of their cultivation outside of their natural habitat are mentioned as well. The last chapter contains an overview of the eight mushrooms that commonly grow in our country and deserve our attention for their healing effects.
The publication also contains four indexes and one of them is a subject index about the use of the individual mushrooms for various diseases.
