As an Integrative Cancer Therapy.
The liquid extract of the mistletoe plant has been used as an alternative method to treat cancer for close to a century. Mistletoe injections are currently among the most widely used non-conventional cancer treatments in Europe.
Mistletoe (Iscador/Iscar/Helixor) can be used in malignant and non-malignant tumors, for stimulation of bone marrow activity, and alongside conventional treatments to offset the side effects of chemotherapy/radiation such as nausea, vomiting, and lack of appetite. It can also be used to diminish tumor-related pain and reduce the risk of tumor recurrence.
Mistletoe is administered subcutaneously (an injection) or intravenously (IV) at a frequency determined by Dr. Petteruti trained in mistletoe. Patients may experience headaches, fever, or a rash (These are positive signs!). Most patients experience a better quality of life as it stimulates the immune system.
