Benefits of Cordyceps

Cordyceps are mushrooms that originated in China. they were commonly thought to be caterpillars, since they appear almost identical to the insects physically, however they are in fact a fungus that eats caterpillars and feeds off their tissues. The Chinese name for the herb is Dong chong xia cao; they have been utilized in traditional Chinese medicine for quite a few centuries. Cordyceps may be helpful in treating: respiratory infections, coughs, colds and the flu, reproductive issues, kidney disorders, bladder infections, asthma, hepatitis B, irregular heartbeats as well as low circulation, heart disease and high cholesterol, liver disorders, weak muscles, chronic fatigue syndrome and decreased energy, and dizziness.1 Also research conducted in Beijing suggests that cordyceps have anti-aging properties and improved the activity of antioxidants.1 This specific study was monitored on mice. Furthermore, the mushrooms have also been used by Chinese athletes in order to boost performance.Here at Acupuncture Atlanta, we sell Super Cordyceps by Mushroom Wisdom. In addition to cordyceps, this product contains vitamin c as well.

To Our Community

Acupuncture Atlanta is committed to providing quality care and helping you stay healthy in this environment defined by a new normal. Acupuncture at its core is a preventative modality and our practitioners are here to work with you and design a treatment plan that is suitable for your specific needs.

The clinic resumed treatments on May 7th with limited hours and new guidelines, and we are slowly working towards full-time hours. Please check the Book Appointment page for available days and time slots, or call us. 

We will also be taking extra protective measures to ensure the safety of our patients and staff:

·      All visitors musk wear a mask entering the building, checking in and waiting in the lobby. No exceptions.

·      We are providing disinfectant wipes and hand sanitizers for all guests to use in several areas.

·      Each treatment room has a HEPA filter with a built-in UV-C air sanitizer (also used in hospital settings.)

·      Practitioners will wear protective masks and/or gloves.

·      Use of disposable paper sheets or change out sheets in between each patient.

·      Treatment tables and other surfaces will be sanitized after each patient.

·      We try to minimize the number of people waiting in the front lobby - your practitioner may ask you to wait in the car until the room is ready.

Please check your appointment confirmations for specific instructions. Our commitment to keeping everyone safe and healthy is our top priority.
