"Maybe the mycelial dormancy experienced in a Western based scientific medical paradigm can be related to a loss of interconnectedness and a super specialisation approach in isolated aspects, instead of a holistic view of interconnectedness as is seen in more Traditional Healing Practices.
The mycelium of fungus species forms exterior sheaths around the roots of partner plants. As strands of mycelium are much smaller than tree roots, the mycelium effectively extends the plant's root system, allowing them to absorb water and nutrients more effectively. The mycelium helps to close the energy cycle of the ecosystem by decomposing organic matter and recycling it into beneficial compounds for the soil food web. Enzymes secreted by the mycelium facilitate this cycle. The enzymes break down the substrate and the surrounding dead organic matter.
We can potentially use this metaphor for the Profession of Phytotherapy acting as sheaths between different professions and healers to enhance the communication network among inter-connecting practices, and to act as proverbial “enzymes” to help close the communication cycle between different custodians of plant-based medicine, and to help to bridge the communication gap."
