I stumbled across Lion’s Mane mushroom when I was researching supplements that would repair the nerve injury I sustained after my mastectomy.
[For those readers who have not been following my blog: I woke up from my mastectomy only to discover that my left arm was paralysed and numb. I had a brachial plexus C5/C6/C7 nerve injury. Yep, bummer.]
Amongst the nerve repair and peripheral neuropathy supplements I researched were: earthworm extract (lumbricus), Acetyl-L-Carnitine, St. John’s Wort, Benfotiamine, Vitamin B12, and Lion’s Mane mushroom.
