OK, the blood results are in. For those who don't remember my white blood cell count took a dip as did my thyroid values when I stated on the aqueous Lion's Mane Mushroom. I stopped taking it, waited 8 weeks and retested. My white blood cell count has not only returned to its previous value but is even a little higher. My thyroid values (TSH, t3 and t4) rebounded but not fully. The dr said that was normal as the thyroid adapts to changes slowly.
So, no more Lion's Mane Mushroom for me. What a shame. It was so effective for the benzo withdrawal.
I have another health issue I am working on right bow so will wait until it is resolved before trying the L-theanine.
