Jason discovered the benefits of medicinal mushrooms after suffering from severe eczema and an iatrogenic illness called Topical Steroid Withdrawal. For 5 years during this withdrawal period from pharmaceutical steroid creams, he battled constant ripped and infected skin, hair loss, inability to thermoregulate, food intolerances, insomnia, chronic fatigue, pain, depression, anxiety and UV sensitivity.
Traditional Chinese Medicine and medicinal mushrooms helped restore his health back to homeostasis, and sparked the genesis and his obsession with medicinal mushrooms, and the history of future of Eastern medicine. Jason is also the founder of the community TSW Assist.
