Courses / Medicinal Mushrooms and the Immune System
What is Net of Knowledge?


Medicinal mushroom extracts are becoming a popular treatment strategy in today’s health and wellness industry. This webinar will present an overview on the impact of medicinal mushrooms on the immune system. A thorough look at the different physiological impacts mushrooms have on different immune cells and systems relating to the immune system will be a focal point.

The webinar will also focus on dosing, safety and the importance of quality.

Medicinal mushrooms have a reuptation for being key immune-modulators when working with acute, chronic and even autoimmune illnesses. Like plants, different species of mushrooms have different applications, active compounds, uses and contraindications. Because medicinal mushroom extracts are formed from food, there therapeutic index is quite large compared to other nutraceuticals and medications.

Some of the most common medicinal mushrooms such as: lions mane, cordyceps, reishi, turkey tail, chaga, oyster, shiitake and maitake will be covered. Active compounds like ergothioneine, beta-glucans, triterpenes and ergosterol will be introduced.

Mycological part (mycelium, mushroom and spore) classification will be covered. This mycological classification system is an important discussion point which will be touched on multiple times throughout the webinar.

If you are curious about the modern advances and functional ways to include medicinal mushrooms into your practice, this is a great webinar for you.

*CEU/CPD ApprovalsSome accreditation bodies have course approval expirations. If the approval expires, you will see a notice next to the name with a date of expiration: "[Until YYYY/MM/DD]". Please factor this date into your own renewal deadline. If an approval expires, you will be able to request that it is renewed and we will submit it for you within 2 business days. Renewals normally come back to us after 30 days. If your accreditation body is not listed under the "Approved" section, you may find it under the "Pending" section. That means that it is either currently pending approval, or that it is available for you to request: "[Upon Request]". New course approvals usually come back to us after 45 days. We use an automated system within our platform that allows you to make these requests in an easy and convenient way. Just visit the course page in your Net of Knowledge account and click the "Request Approval" button at the top. Each "Course and CEUs/CPDs" purchase grants you 1 request per accreditation body. If you request a course approval and do not complete it before its new expiration date, you will need to purchase another "CEU/CPD Add-On" to make another request. If the course is ineligible for approval with an accreditation body due to their subject-matter policies, it will be listed as "[Ineligible]", and no requests will be possible for the course.
