  • Hey everyone! Just sliding into the comments to reiterate that when it comes to mental health, you have to do what helps you! If you need medication, you should absolutely begin that journey of finding the right prescription that works for you. If you're not ready for medication or feel some kind of way about medication, there are holistic remedies that may be worth checking out. These Reishi extract powders from Four Sigmatic worked for me, but do consult with a naturopath or do your research before trying anything. More than anything, I reccommend therapy to anyone who is struggling. Every person's road to recovery is different, and there is no judgement here only love

    • 7:00 🤗

    • Devin!! Your sense of humor is so good for my mental health!!! You're a joy latte ☕ good for da sOuL 💟

    • @Christina Nieto Do you have the price for the same brands,quantities etc?

  • Is anyone els bothered by the way they say herb.... it sounds like erb

  • Devin is so pretty

  • Drop the coffe, caffeine causes anxiety.

  • I love her cats💖

  • reishi isnt a herb....

  • Steroids!!!!!!!!!!🙀

  • Love this!

  • Pierogi are better, remember!

  • What is the actual recipe?

  • $108 ~magic tea~ < $12/month anxiety meds... yep, sticking with actually scientific medicine for this one chief

  • How many people bailed at :08 LOL

  • ashwagonda helps me with my depression

  • I take capsules containing ashwagandha, cordyceps and reishi, and a few bark extracts. Helps a lot for my insomnia.

  • Weather this is like the placebo effect or is really helping I’m so glad this is working for devin

  • Ghee can be made at home by boiling unsalted butter and cardamom can be bought at Indian grocery stores (ghee too) for under $10

  • Left nostril breathing...please...no.

  • Saw you in the audience at E3

  • And... "next week we'll have a professional witch doctor exorcise all my demons!"

  • Reishi is known as the queen of plants without even being a plant lol

  • Is no one going to talk about how the cat actually listened to Devin and jumped off the counter when she asked it to? What a good kitty.

  • I am proud of you and you are a beautiful soul!!!

  • This is not anxiety lmao! At least Google what anxiety is before tu make a video lmao!

  • I was wondering if you ladies would be able to do a video on bulletproof coffee... you know the coffee that has grass-fed butter to help kick start the day... I am finding that during the day I can drink 6 shots of espresso, an energy drink, take 2 no-doz pills... and am still looking for that kick of energy that most people get when taking just one of those... I can also go throughout the day with zero caffeine and have the same level of energy... This idea was just a thought kind of piggy backing off of this mushroom idea...

  • This is interesting I’m not against it there definitely can be science involved, but I would like to see peer reviewed scholarly sources with actual scientific data before I would honestly trust that it’s not pseudoscience. I think herbs are cool though and I would love to learn more about them.

  • Omg I thought it was shrooms for a second and I was gonna be like..shrooms and anxiety do NOT mix well 😂

  • Bruh, it’s Cho Chang yall

  • You should try magic mushrooms and quit beating around the mycelium lol

  • Dont take the cordyceps! There'll be a zombie outbreak!

  • I take CBD and it has never made me drowsy unless it’s bed time. It’s the only thing that’s helped my anxiety significantly without prescriptions. It helps me stay calm, plan and execute my day without stress, going out is easier, getting dressed is a cinch and sleep is amazing and restful, waking up in the morning is easy and enjoyable! I’ve tried the mushroom cocoas but never everyday for a month so maybe I’ll add that into my routine.

  • When i read the tittle i was like Devin darling..... what are u doing but at the same time you do you boo

  • If you make an episode on medical marijuana, I can help you guys out with that c:

  • As someone with a very deviated septum I can literally only do left nostril breathing. It’s not that great.

  • 🧿🧿🧿💦💦💦🎫🎫🎫💎💎💎 🌀🌀🌀💧💧💧 🌊🌊🌊 *Jesus Christ is the only true God!* *The one God who rose from the dead and lives forever.* *Jesus Christ is the only one qualified to give us eternal life.* *also heal their bodies.*) 🧿🧿🧿💦💦💦🎫🎫🎫💎💎💎 🌀🌀🌀💧💧💧 🌊🌊🌊

  • Omg Devin is like the queen. If you don’t like Devin, we don’t like you. 😄

  • pseudoscience bologna

  • Hi Devin! I just watched this video and it really hit home to how I feel about my anxiety. What you said in your car about multiple thoughts running through your mind: that's me 95% of the time. I really appreciate you talking about your mental health and making it relevant to those of us struggling daily. Thank you so much!

  • Um excuse me Cordyceps? The fungus that turns bugs into zombies? We're messing with that?

  • Ew. I don’t like you.

  • I have a question...the reishi mushrooms were added to coffee, but I dont like coffee and choose not to drink it for health reasons, religious reasons etc. What else could one mix with the mushrooms to keep the taste at bay?

  • So LA I love it. (by Overheard LA)

  • Whats the measurements for a single serving? Only the amount of the nut milk was given for the single serving

  • Oh my gosh I LOVE REISHI! 🍄💓

  • So...can I add this to wine?

  • can you post the recipe for the latte exact measurments

  • I love the stranger things poster in the background we love a stranger things queen!!!!

  • "oh thats god!"

  • I think your anxiety reduced because you have a routine structure for intentionality not the mushroom

  • I have been taking this for almost a week now and it really helps but my mind still races at night but I am way more calm during the day

  • Caffeine is an obvious anxiety trigger. By eliminating caffeine from your diet it can change your anxiety levels drastically. Why would you put something that can drastically heighten anxiety (caffeine) in a drink with ingredients to help lower anxiety?

  • whoever suggested you ashwagandha must be a fool because ashwagndha is like viagra in india

  • 0:51 something tells me that isnt her actual name..

  • Didn’t anyone else hear that music used in *TALKING* *TOM* *JETSKI* Around 5:00

  • I hope you give us an Update after about 6 months... with holistics it can take a while - even months to see the full effect, so I would love to see a follow up ;)

  • A lot of claims in a very short time and NOT A SINGLE SOURCE!!! Shape up, Ladylike.

  • I'll be honest, I'm a little disappointed that this isn't a discussion of the other kind of shroom. Especially since they're currently running studies on how mushrooms and how they help with anxiety and depression. Therapists aren't really allowed to talk about them as an option because they're currently illegal, but they will know about them and might be willing to discuss. www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/320636.php

  • Completely unrelated. But I was just watching "A Very Potter Musical" by Starkid and I realized that DEVIN WAS CHO CHANG. I saw her and I was like "Is that Devin?" and then google was like YEs and I internally screamed.

  • Where y’all at?

  • Why dont you guys try making an own sword? That would be sooo cool!

  • SMH. I just realized I'm eating bacon and drinking Pepsi while watching this healthy video.

  • So happy for you 💖

  • Awful video, you should be ashamed for making it and telling people a bunch of nonsense. Also, doesn't look like it did anything for you at all so why bother posting it? Probably sponsored by the tea company you showed about a dozen times in this video.

  • I clicked on this because I'm a mushroom hunter. I use chaga almost every day as a cold drink/ energy drink. I don't use reishi as much. It tastes horrible. I do add it , as a tincture to my chaga juice every now and then. Chaga , reishi and many mushrooms are immune boosting too. If you live in the north you can get to the woods you can find your own reishi and chaga. It's not easy , but it is fun , ( if you like the woods). You can also buy both from people like me. I sell both chaga and reishi on ebay , as well as hundreds of other people. Generally a pound of reishi sells for around $25 US. The box of reishi she bought was maybe 1 ounce and probably cost $10 or more. Chaga sells for around $10 per pound. Ground chaga at a health food store will probably run you a hundred a pound. I not looking for customers just want to let people know. Good mushrooms don't cost that much. Reishi season starts mid june , good luck.

  • i did coko...an some plantz that dont know... beside that... im cured

  • jesus christ i didn’t even recognize devin in the thumbnail LOL. yikes!

  • Next week: trying coke to help with my sleep paralysis demon In video: coke as in Coca-Cola not the drug lmao u thought

  • I just wanted to say, you guys help me feel empowered in my body. I always thought to be a good girl to not show off your body. Now I know that screw being a good girl. I can still be good and show off my body and feel empowered. You really changed my mindset. Thank you so much 💖

  • how rishi powder use?


    • Werent this in one of the other comments?

  • I love 5 stars and pretty sisters ❤️

  • Cultural appropriation 🤦‍♂️

  • i tried them too, just random ones from the bushes, i went mad for several weeks, first few weeks the mental home gave me an all clear, bunch of imbeciles

  • Ghee is not 100% dairy free. If you have an allergy to dairy or are very sensitive to dairy, do not eat it.

  • I like ladylike and their videos, however I've never been irked so much by a video to comment negatively. That vocal fry is just such a tired trope, I usually can ignore it, but somehow that "mushroom expert" woman, using hers to reinforce her alleged/questionable "health" tips just set me off. Also its herbs, the "h" isn't silent, I know Americans don't pronounce it and again I tend to ignore it, but it was mispronounced so obnoxiously in this video that again it set me off. On another note I'm not sure if it's cultural appropriation (doubtful?), at least I don't think so but it would be nice to have actual Asians or Asian-Americans explain the benefits of the things/ingredients they use in their food predominantly like Ghee, dates and that type of mushroom. End of rant.

  • It's almost like an episode of Portlandia

  • These are super ethnic ingredients. Sooo, you probably could've gone into a Chinese and Indian market and found all these things for less $$$

  • Of course she's from Portland

  • I went from 22 "conventional" medications down to 3... I replaced or got rid of so many things because prescription medication was NOT working for me. I've seen too many specialists and had more pokes and XRays and CT Scans and MRIs... I'm surprised I'm not mutating. I do NOT think YoungLiving Essential oils or doTERRA can cure cancer and AIDS and schizophrenia. I do think conventional medicine has it's place. But we tend to be our best advocate as a patient and a healthcare worker. I STRONGLY recommend if you're going to go down a more holistic approach that you do a lot of UNBIASED research and stay in string communication with your doctors. There's definitely a reason Ayurvedic and Chinese and Herbalism has been around so long and that a lot of our conventional medications come from some of these formulations. If it works for you, that's awesome. I feel pretty fortunate that I've found things that work for me, especially after all the health issues I've dealt with. I can't stress the unbiased research though... Because there are some scary untrue things being published and supported that can be very dangerous to your health.

  • The ads are getting smarter...

  • I had to turn this one off 1/3 of the way through. I felt very uncomfortable with the generalizations being made about other cultures' traditional medical practices. Also felt that the expert in this video is engaging in a lot of cultural appropriation.

  • Smoke weed

  • Hi Devan! I don't know if you or anyone from the team reads comments or not, but I'm very curious to know if the recipe that your naturopath gave you was a change from your normal caffeine intake in the morning before you started making the mushroom latte. I know caffeine is SO VERY MUCH tied to spikes in anxiety, and it'd be cool to know if that was also an impacting factor in addition to the mushrooms. Great video, and thank you for all the disclaimers encouraging people to talk to a professional before adapting any kind of new regiment!

  • Ghee is NOT dairy free!

  • I can't have caffeine/coffee as it worsens my anxiety. Is there something caffeine free I can make this with?

  • The amount of misinformation being put out here in this video is deplorable. It's really infuriating and puts a worse impression on an already unrespected way of trying to deal with your health issues. With that said, please look at other videos and research papers about how these foods can be helpful.

    • Biji Smythe I know right she should have tried consulting with a mushroom expert like Paul Stamets or at least use google and look at the NIH database for studies.

  • So I’m doing shrooms but not shrooms

  • she even looks different! looks less physically tired

  • "but not those types of mushrooms" *clicks back button*

  • I'd love to see videos of the Chaga mushroom!

  • why do i feel so sleepy after drinking coffee?

  • How did i literally 100% guess what the“Herb meditation expert” would look like.

  • Try jesus.

  • gnome woman

  • 🤦🏼‍♀️

  • people in the comments repeating placebo placebo like they're sooo logical and smart...

  • Phony baloney

  • *Degenerate druggies*

  • Cast all your cares upon the Lord Jesus Christ because He cares for you.

  • *them talking about the nostril exercise* Me: *nose all stuffy* *still tries it* I.... i cant breath...

  • Nothin like RU-tv promoting drugs! 👍🏻
