Product Details


The Fungal Pharmacy is a great book for anyone interested in the medicinal properties of mushrooms. In this rapidly developing field, I am delighted to recommend this book to both amateurs and professionals. Robert Rogers has made a significant contribution … highly recommended!” —Paul Stamets, author of Mycelium Running

“Robert Rogers is amazingly knowledgeable of the mushrooms and other wild fungi of the Pacific Northwest , and eager to share his knowledge. Doctor, heal thyself—learn your mushrooms and get out into the woods!” —Britt Bunyard, publisher and editor-in-chief of Fungi magazine

“Robert’s knowledge of plants and fungi can make one’s head spin with medicinal, traditional, and culinary uses.” —Martin Osis, president of the Alberta Mycological Society

The Fungal Pharmacy is the first book in the field to attempt to understand the energetics and personality of the medicinal mushrooms rather than relying solely on their pharmacological profiles.  By ‘energetics’ I mean the basic pathological patterns of the mushroom, such as hot or cold, damp or dry.  By ‘personality’ I mean the indications peculiar to a mushroom that come from an intimate working knowledge of a medicine. This method represents the high road for the intuitive practitioner.” —Matthew Wood, author of The Earthwise Herbal

“An extensively researched and comprehensive synthesis of traditional knowledge and contemporary scientific data. An invaluable resource to anyone with an interest in traditional medicine or simply a fascination with lichens.” —Heath O’Brien, PhD
“Packed with information, The Fungal Pharmacy is a ‘must-read’ for all who are interested in medicinal mushrooms. Highly readable, the book is useful for students, biologists, naturalists, and the general public. A most welcome addition to the field of ethnomycology.” —Roland Treu, associate professor, Athabasca University

“The Fungal Pharmacy is a ‘must’ reference for mycologists, mushroom hunters, and practitioners of natural health care. … Full color photos pack a survey of clinical studies, homeopathic uses, global folklore and cultural references, and more. [The Fungal Pharmacy] is the first book in the field that investigates the pathological patterns of medicinal mushrooms rather than their pharmacological profiles. … There’s nothing as extensive currently in print.” Midwest Book Review
