Chaga Medicine and Sustainability

by Sarah Lawless

Chaga is earthy, dark, and mysterious with centuries of mythology and folklore behind its use from British Columbia to Russia and China. Throughout history it seems to have been touted as a cure-all and a secret to immortality or, at least, to good health and longevity. Chaga is currently a "super herb" along the same lines as a "super food" which has catapulted it into the spotlight to the point everyone's heard of chaga or is using chaga in some way as a herbal remedy or supplement. Despite its current popularity, I've found many people still lack the knowledge of what chaga is, where it comes from, how it should be harvested, and how it should be processed and used for medicine.
