Mistletoe, typically associated with holiday traditions, holds remarkable potential as a complementary treatment for cancer. Extracts derived from mistletoe have been extensively studied for their anticancer properties and immune-stimulating effects. The use of mistletoe in cancer treatment, known as Viscum album therapy, has shown promising results in improving quality of life, reducing side effects of conventional treatments, and potentially enhancing overall survival rates. By stimulating the immune system, mistletoe extracts may help in the fight against cancer cells and support the body's natural defense mechanisms. As ongoing research continues to explore the therapeutic benefits of mistletoe, it offers a compelling avenue for integrative cancer care.
In the early 1900s, Rudolf Steiner, a philosopher, lecturer, and brilliant innovator, perceived that one day in the future, mistletoe would be used as a remedy to treat cancer and other chronic diseases. Hence, where mistletoe therapy comes in. This therapy using mistletoe extract is a component of the practice of alternative medicine in an effort to create a better quality of life for people.
Several studies have shed light on the potential therapeutic benefits of mistletoe in cancer treatment. Research conducted by reputable institutions such as the National Cancer Institute and Johns Hopkins Medicine has explored the use of mistletoe extracts in improving quality of life and immune function for cancer patients. These studies suggest that mistletoe therapy may help reduce side effects of conventional treatments, enhance immune response, and potentially improve survival rates.
