Does anyone know if Lion's Mane is ok to take when a C4a is elevated? Wasn't sure since it's a mushroom.

That depends on why your C4a is elevated. If it's due to mold, then I would very much encourage you to not use it until you are healed from the mold issues. But, C4a can be elevated for other reasons as well (that I don't understand well enough to try to explain - but I bet someone else here can!).

What symptoms are you trying to treat with Lion's Mane? I've used it before with good results for my neuro issues, but I don't know the answer to your C4a question unfortunately.

I have mycotoxins and the dreaded HLA-DR multi susceptible haplotype, although my C4a was not that elevated. I still have mold and chemical sensitivities.

I have been taking lions mane for about 6 months. I have not noticed any adverse effects from it.

I also take Cordyceps. When I first started Cordyceps, my chemical sensitivities increased, so I stopped. The chemical sensitivities continued for 10-14 days. A few months later, I added the Cordyceps back again. I haven't noticed adverse effects this time. Chemical sensitivities are part of my symptom picture and have been since my chronic Lyme started 8 years ago. They have fluctuated in intensity. I had some brief relief back around April. Unfortunately, they returned and have been a constant issue for over 6 months. I'm a terrible detoxer. I believe that and bartonella are the main reasons for my chemical sensitivities. My doctor thinks mold and parasites cause the chemical sensitivities.

Ok thank you. I appreciate the input. Not sure why the C4a is high. It's 4400. Not terribly high and this was done 4 months ago as well. I wanted to try it to help the peripheral nerves.

That's what I have as well. 1 tsp twice a day for nerve regeneration.

I have bad head tingling and head pressure. Is lions mane good for that? I am on the bunher core protocol for about 2 months and I don't feel any better.

I found a reference here:
buhnerhealinglyme.com/symptoms/frontal-head-pressure-and-tightness/

Somewhere in his books, Buhner specifically recommends kudzu root for the head pressure. He also recommended kudzu for pain.

Two months is not long. Don't give up. I'm 7 months in and still very up and down.

5 months here. Lyme treated now leftover symptoms resemble Bart or nerve damage, maybe both. Yippy!! Not. Good luck and thank you for all the info. Hang in there brighter days ahead.

Thanks walkingby faith. I wonder if it wouid work on the tingling on top of head too. But I will look into ordering it and trying it.

I know two months is not long but I am thinking i could possibly feel worse.

You are 7 months in and up and down. Doesn't that make you feel that maybe the protocol is not for you?
