Birch Polypore has been used for at least 5000 years as a medicine. German hikers in 1991 stumbled onto a frozen, mummified man, dated at 5000 years old, he was wearing a birch polypore around his neck. Examination of this man identified a type of gastrointestinal bacteria, that can be treated with birch polypore. The polypore has great anti-inflammatory properties, is proven to promote gut health, and offers neuroprotection against trophic stress. This fungus also produces specific acids similar to interferon, which is a strong antiviral medicine.

We have been foraging the Blue Ridge Mountains for over 30 years, happy to share the wonders of nature with family and friends. A close friend suggested there may be countless others, worldwide, who would also love to partake of the diverse wild goods this area has to offer. Grandfather Medicinals is the platform I developed to share this unique goodness. I am continually awed by the volume and quality of the people I have met in this undertaking. My time is best spent in the woods, so I keep processing, labeling, packaging, etc. to a minimum. I am happy to talk fungus and plants whether any products are purchased or not. I keep finding that the people who are involved or interested in these things are kind, good people. We all need more of that in our lives! Thank you for stopping in.
