Mushrooms and the Immune System
    #2266656 - 01/23/04 07:55 PM (13 years, 9 months ago)

Hello all,

The past 3 or 4 times that I have done mushrooms, around 1-3 days afterwards I have come down with the flu or a cold.

I am just wondering if anyone has any idea if me getting sick has anything to do with taking mushrooms? Does the body take such a beating that it is left in a weekened state, susceptible to illness?

This hasn't always been a problem for me, but I have noticed it as I said the past few times.

Thanks all,

e.

I wouldn't say the actually mushrooms weaken you, but the experience can, although not too much... When you trip you dont eat or sleep usually and this already doesn't help, also it does but some kind of strain on you (most people think).

I suggest just doing the normal dont get sick stuff w/ your trip. Like sleep plenty the night before, eat right, etc. Then after (before too probably) take vitamins. After you trip try to sleep, incase you're one of the people that just end up not sleeping that night. Also eat and drink something.

Goodluck next time :mushroom2:

Consider your source of mushrooms. Have your past few trips been from the same batch of shrooms, i.e., off the same growth substrate? If so it might be plausable to assume that a contam is the source of your illness.

also alot of shroomers starve emselves and deprive themselves of sleep before taking them which would lower your immune too,did you?

Well, I wouldn't say I deprived myself, maybe ate less than usual but hardly to what I would think would be dangerous levels.

And the last few trips were from the same batch, yes, but I had many others off the same bag with no illness.

Maybe it's just a whacky coincidence?

I just got a light cold after my last trip, but I'm sure it was from being outside all night where I was cold.

Are you taking them at night and missing sleep? Shrooms come around 400 places lower than aspirin in the physical toxicity list. They don't give your body a battering at all.

I trip late afternoon. The week after a trip I can run 2-3 miles furthur than usual and put 15-20lbs on my bench, deadlift and squat.

Hard to say mate. I recently have had the same type of problem. Off of healthy shrooms/multiple types. Then a coupla weeks after I got sick as a dog for like 11 days. And I don't get sick, I mean like 5-6 years only been sick 2-3 days max. I just summed it up to the stress on your body weakining the immune system. Just my .02$'s. Take some echinacea/goldenseal and eat up ! have fun but be healthy. Peace
