What is fungi
medicine?

Fungi medicine has been shown by the scientific community to offer exceptional healing benefits to the mind & body. These benefits far surpass nutrition alone, leading to dramatic shifts in lifestyle & perspective, with the capacity to radically overhaul the human operating system

Wake has developed a gold-standard regenerative feedback loop that allows us to research, monitor and incorporate results from clinical studies on a one-to-one basis. Wake is shaping the future of personalized medicine, eradicating ambiguous results from mass medicine and blanket healthcare.

 

Wake is proud to be a research & result based organization, and our mushroom formulas and clinical therapies are created with GMP-certified organic fungi cultivated by our specialized professionals, best-in-class methodology, clean processing, real-world data and ongoing clinical evidence. Our daily supplements and clinical immersive experiences will continue to expand as we advance scientific knowledge around the healing power of mushrooms.

Veteran Intergration

Alex Vincent

Veteran Intergration

As a U.S. Marine Veteran with combat experience, Alex began searching for a better way to cope and heal than what was being prescribed through a broken VA medical system. This led him through a journey of deep inner work, research and, ultimately, fungi medicine. With the support of psilocybin micro-dosing, he was able to remove alcohol and marijuana as coping tools. Throughout his journey, Alex recognized a deeper potential for growth and improvement in athletic and cognitive performance. More importantly, he was able to cultivate more meaningful relationships with others while allowing himself to be more expressive. Alex has proven himself as a leader both in and out of the Marines, and is now using those skills to aid and guide other veterans in need. It is Alex’s hope that all veterans who struggle with mental health to find healthy and alternative ways of coping and healing
