About Qi Mushrooms
The Qi Mushrooms Story
I’m Chester Ku-Lea, and as founder of Qi (pronounced 'chi') Mushrooms, I’d like to share my story. My journey as a healthy living entrepreneur began in 2004.
I launched numerous wellbeing enterprises and what shocked me was the lack of standards in the health industry.
From shoddy manufacturing, unethical practices, and harmful products marketed as miracles, here was a poor reward for genuine seekers of health and vitality.
That's why I wanted Qi Mushrooms to raise the bar on quality, with mushrooms that are designed to provide high levels of therapeutic support.
The History of Medicinal Mushrooms Tells A Compelling Story
And it deserves a new chapter for the 2020s that honors centuries of dedicated practice and rewards today’s new enthusiasts with the health benefits they seek.
And that list now enshrines the whole Qi Mushrooms philosophy underpinning every product we ship to the world.

The Heart & SoulOf Qi Mushrooms
My father is a Tai Chi and Qi Gong master who taught my family all we know about Qi and healthy living. He took pride in his Chinese ancestry and gained his skills and wisdom at the feet of masters in China.
When he moved to Canada in the 60s, he brought his Tai Chi teaching to a new audience, including the neighbourhood kids I grew up with. Most importantly, he showed us the value of medicinal mushrooms and how they helped the body achieve equilibrium and harmony.
The Heart & Soul Of Qi Mushrooms
A Father's Wisdom
A Father's Wisdom
My father’s wisdom was a desire to balance yin and yang and Qi flow in everything he did.
This meant balancing regular exercise with healthy nutrition. At 88, he still practises his Tai Chi in the park at 5 am. And he takes his Red Reishi every day to help him maintain harmony.
We all deserve long and happy lives, and key to our success is how we choose to live.
