Let’s immediately clarify that there are no specific contraindications for chaga medicaments. The chaga mushroom is hypoallergenic, contains no substances that are harmful to the human organism and has no cumulative impacts, i.e. it cannot accumulate within the body.
However, we need to be aware that the long-term use of these fungi in people with shattered nervous system may result in hyperexcitability. Chaga is not recommended for use in the case of several intestinal diseases. I underline that these recommendations apply not only to chaga, but also to any other remedies – you should not self-medicate. It is best to consult your doctor first, especially if you have some chronic diseases.
So here's some things you should keep in mind when using chaga for medical treatment:
- In the case of illnesses involving fluid retention, you should prepare a more saturated chaga infusion so that no excessive amount of fluid enters the body;
- The prolonged use of chaga medicaments may lead to the hyperexcitability of the nervous system. In such cases, the dose should be reduced or the use of this medication should be completely halted;
- Birch fungus is contraindicated in the case of chronic colitis or dysentery;
- During the course of treatment using chaga medicaments, the intravenous intake of glucose is prohibited;
- Treatment that simultaneously based on birch fungus and antibiotics, especially penicillin, is not recommended due to the fact that these medications are not compatible with each other;
- It is not recommended to consume strong alcoholic beverages or to abuse tobacco during medical treatment using chaga;
- It should also be recalled that there is a likelihood of an allergic reaction, albeit small, which may be due to the manifestation of certain individual characteristics of the patient's organism;
- In order for treatment with chaga to be maximally effective, you should adhere to specific dietary requirements.
