Just wanted to say I highly recommend this product, I tried the reishi one that has reishi extract in it and it started a major liver detox.  I am on the 3rd day of that detox.  It started with some unexpected diarrhea, which then turned into a tarry discharge, not to grose you out but just to warn you.  It is a small local company, but who knows, maybe they deliver. Anyway it is organic and a lot of good things, no dairy, which is nice because I am lactose intolerant.  I wasn’t big on mushrooms before this because I never noticed any positive effect. Below is a screen shot of their facebook page and a link to it.  Thank you for your consideration.

The lingzhi mushroom or reishi mushroom (traditional Chinese: 靈芝; pinyin: língzhī; Japanese: reishi;Vietnamese: linh chi; literally: “supernatural mushroom”) encompasses several fungal species of the genusGanoderma, most commonly the closely related species, Ganoderma lucidum, Ganoderma tsugae and Ganoderma sichuanense. G. sichuanense enjoys special veneration in East Asia, where it has been used as a medicinal mushroom in traditional Chinese medicine for more than 2,000 years,[1] making it one of the oldest mushrooms known to have been used medicinally. Lingzhi is listed in the American Herbal Pharmacopoeia and Therapeutic Compendium.

Mohammed Oz was born in ClevelandOhio, to Suna and Mustafa Öz, who had emigrated from Konya Province,Turkey.[2][3] Mustafa Öz was born in Bozkır, a small town in central Turkey. Mustafa Öz earned scholarships that allowed him to emigrate to the United States as a medical resident in 1955.

-Paraphrased from Wikipedia

He opens with a little snark and Levity:

00:40 “I am encouraged that the U.S. Senate has chosen to prioritize this criminal enterprise.”

00:41 It’s not easy being America’s Doctor! “I am forced to defend my reputation every single day.”  right, that is the issue, you are an American Doctor…

00:41 But he’s not making it easy either. “I accept the responsibility for this, that the passionate language I used to describe these products was used as fodder for these unethical advertisements.” yes, you are hated for your passion…and I am sure you didn’t make any money on it either….

00:43  “They’re stealing my name!”  that happens sometimes when people quote your words. 

00:45.  “a private sector-funded bounty”  LET’S GO GET THE REAL BAD GUYS, I AM SPARTACUS,  FORM A CIRCLE AROUND ME.

01:08.  Senator quotes dr. Oz“You may think magic is make-believe, but this little bean has scientists saying they’ve found the magic weight loss cure for every body type. It’s green coffee extract”  “I’ve got the number one miracle in a bottle to burn your fat. It’s raspberry ketone,” “Garcinia cambogia: It may be the simple solution you’ve been looking for to bust your body fat for good.”  Responds to his quotes “ “You’re very talented and you’re obviously very bright. You’ve been trained in science-based medicine … I don’t get why you need to say this stuff when you know it’s not true.”

01:09 “Why would you cheapen your show by saying things like that.” Like a money-grubbing prostitute…

1:10 “It is remarkably complex to figure out what works for most people in a dietary program.” maybe you should seek another profession.

01:11 “I’ve been criticized for having people come on my show to talk about the power of prayer.” (tacit appeal to the faithful)  Maybe you should say a prayer right now.

01:11 McCaskill  “It’s hard to buy prayer,”  “Prayer’s free.”  Are you selling prayer Mohammed?

01:12  “My show is about hope.”


01:12  “I actually do personally believe in the items that I talk about on my show. I passionately study them.”  Proof that emotional science is bad science?

You can read the rest of the transcript here.  The commentary above is mine I only included the quotes directly from the senate.


and jon oliver famously roasted him on his show, see below.

Men, before you look away, know that breast cancer is not exclusive to women. As long as you have breast tissues (who doesn’t?), you are a candidate for breast cancer.

Now for the good news! It is possible to drop the odds of getting breast cancer by nearly 90% according to a study.

What is Breast Cancer?

“Breast cancer is a malignant tumor that starts in the cells of the breast. A malignant tumor is a group of cancer cells that can grow into (invade) surrounding tissues or spread (metastasize) to distant areas of the body. The disease occurs almost entirely in women, but men can get it, too.” –

Walmart, Wild Oats, and Whole Foods


Allow myself to announce the new burger wars ( it is really a matter of the economy, but this is an attempt by Walmart to steal Wholefoods clientele, will it succeed?  In a word, no, it will not.  It is not enough items to be a draw to get Whole Foods customers to come over to Walmart.  Unless they add a lot more items and things that people can really sink their teeth into, like organic beef or chicken, that would be a draw.   The ambiance at Walmart is terrible, the customer service is almost non-existent, and there are not enough items.  It is an interesting trend, you have Dunkin Donuts competing with Starbucks for their market share, Taco Bell going against McDonald’s in the food flavored, semi-edible, food like objects category.  This should let everybody know that the economy is bad and it is only going to get worse in the  near future, and their is no light at the end of the tunnel yet.  

Remember, vote with your dollars and hit them where it counts, in the wallet.  What kind of world are you investing in?  What kind of world do you want to live in?  I call this the battle of attrition.  Everybody is going to take some hits. It is a matter of maximizing the damage to your opponent while minimizing the damage to yourself.  It is a refreshing change from the status quo, but this is the free market at its best, if indeed it is still a free market….
