What's The Problem?
Accordingly to a recent study (1) , more than 970 million people worldwide have a mental health or substance abuse disorder. Now, with the COVID-19 global pandemic, we see these numbers drastically increasing. It is estimated that mental health disorders are attributable to approximately 8 million deaths each year. Current treatments, such as SSRIs, haven't changed in decades and they are focused on fixing the SYMPTOMS of our problems, rather than addressing the root cause. If there's one thing we learned over the past year, it's what's NOT working for people. It's time for CHANGE, and FUNGI might hold the answers so many have been looking for.

Compared to the projected $16B valuation of the antidepressant industry in 2023 that only has a CAGR of 2.1%, the paradigm has already shifted towards natural medicine. (2)
