Extract from Mistletoe (Iscador and Helixor) is one of the most commonly used complementary treatments for cancer in Europe. It appears to be toxic toward many types of cancer cells. It is also stimulating to the immune system helping it to better fight cancer.

There are different types of mistletoe extract. The proper type and dose depends upon the patient’s health status and the type of cancer that they have.

Treatment can be administered either intravenously, or subcutaneously thereby making it possible to self treat at home in many cases. At Intellectual Medicine we frequently combine Mistletoe with vitamin C.

Both of these complementary cancer treatments can be used at the same time as chemotherapy, or radiation therapy. In many cases these very well tolerated treatment can be used long-term to prevent cancer relapse.

Price - pricing depends on type of mistletoe and mg uses. A consultation with Dr. Petteruti is required before administering.

(note - neither Mistletoe nor a vitamin C have been proven to be cures for cancer. We recommend maintaining treatment with your oncologist another doctors in addition to using complementary care.)
