    Hey everyone! Just sliding into the comments to reiterate that when it comes to mental health, you have to do what helps you! If you need medication, you should absolutely begin that journey of finding the right prescription that works for you. If you're not ready for medication or feel some kind of way about medication, there are holistic remedies that may be worth checking out. These Reishi extract powders from Four Sigmatic worked for me, but do consult with a naturopath or do your research before trying anything. More than anything, I reccommend therapy to anyone who is struggling. Every person's road to recovery is different, and there is no judgement here only love

    I will say that the difference between you on day 30 and 40 is insane! I could tell right away the difference in your tone of voice and facial expression that you weren’t feeling as good without the mushrooms. I hope you continue to use them and feel good ❤️

    If you have serious anxiety problems like GAD or panic attacks, I would recommend using medication and starting theraphy. Herbals might help you relax but they are not going to restore the disrupted chemicals in the brain. Antidepressants help restore the neurotransmitters in your brain and usually provide premanent treatment whereas herbals can only make you relax for the moment or day. Yes, finding the right medication for you can be difficult since every body reacts differently to different medicines but it is worth it for your mental health.

    I've never heard of using ashwaganda for anxiety, it's mostly for memory issues. And if you're taking medications, YOU HAVE GOT TO BE CAREFUL OF REACTIONS....

    I would love to see a video where the ladies reflect on which tries have made the most impact on your lives. Which ones are you still doing months or years later, and maybe which ones didn't pan out?

    I think you should try raw sliced Reishi mushroom kept in alcohol for 2 weeks. The alcohol extracts compounds which are available thru boiling, and I think drying and powdering the mushroom destroys some of its power.

    Would love to try this. Been searching for a comfort drink that helps with energy or health because coffee just puts me to sleep. (Unless its the highest mg of caffine drink from coffeeshops, then i get about two hrs of ~~nyoom). That nose breathing thing just will not work for me sadly thanks to my poor sinuses.

    Hi Devin, I wanted to know if you were going to do a follow up on the Reishi mushroom tea that if you’re still drinking it or not!!!?💁‍♀️🤔🍵🍄❤️❤️😍😍

    Anxiety is actually caused by caring about what other people think. I've had anxiety (like panic attack inducing anxiety) when I realized that getting rid of it basically meant not caring about what people think, I worked on that and I'm pretty much 100% ok now. On another note though, I heard marijuana was great for anxiety relief. Maybe give that a try. ;)

    I have a lot of experience with reishi and i would recommend getting the raw form of it in slices and boil a tea for 2 hours to break it down its like wood u can drink it evryday it works really fast for anxiety it gives u a meditative state, i love using it for coffe just replace the water with reishi tea and it will negate all negative side effects of coffe no crash! And even taste good. Reishi works differently as a tincture also when extracted with alchohol. But i would not recommend ingesting powder form due to products for reishi capsules seem expensive and less effective sometimes even harsh on the liver

    Did anyone else try this and get super light headed? ☹️ I drank about half a mug and a few minutes later felt flushed and floaty. I wish you could buy single packets to try before committing to a whole box. Now I’m stuck with a $30+ box of tea that I’m too afraid to drink. 🤦‍♀️

    Hi Ladylike! I have subscribed to your channel for a while now, as I am sure hundreds of thousands of other women have! I appreciate that a lot of your videos have a strong mental health basis! I was wondering if you ladies can make a video about the post-college/uni hustle. statistically there is a large portion of graduates who are depressed. I am sure a video like this may help a lot of young women who have high expectations while studying, that are almost crushed when they cannot get the job they spent years studying for. I really hope this comment gets noticed, I feel like it will help a lot of people.

    There have been actual scientific studies on "shrooms" and they are actually being explored as a treatment for anxiety and depression. Now, the suggestions right now are microdosing so you wouldn't get high but the research is actually pretty promising
