MISTLETOE THERAPY - A BOON TO CANCER TREATMENT

   Mistletoe therapy is a type of treatment for cancer used by well trained doctors .
   This therapy was developed in Switzerland by Rudolf Steiner at the beginning of
   the 20th century.

   It is prepared from different types of mistletoe extracts. Treatment with Mistletoe
   aims at intensifying the body’s own forces against the cancer cell’s tendency towards
   autonomy. Mistletoe is a complementary rather than an alternative medicine. It is
   frequently prescribed in Europe by medical doctors including oncologists in addition to the
   conventional cancer therapies, radiation, surgery and chemotherapy. Nowadays in Europe, mistletoe
   is a key component in conventional cancer therapy. Here in India, following training doctors have begun to
   use Mistletoe for cancer cases. Mistletoe is available in the US under the brand name Iscar.

 
 


   THERAPEUTIC APPLICATIONS

  • Early malignancies. Here it has the greatest scope, especially in Stage 0, i.e. Carcinoma-in-situ.

  • Advanced malignancies. Here it is of considerable help in inoperable tumours, recurrences, widespread metastases and in terminal cases, it brings about palliation.

  • It is used as a prophylactic for malignant lesions in pre-cancerous states, where regression of the lesion takes place.

  • Benign neoplasms.

  • Surgery - Inoperable tumours become operable through delineation of the tumour by Mistletoe therapy. During the operation, it helps prevent dissemination of the tumour. Post-operatively, it hastens a smooth convalescence. Early follow-up treatment by Mistletoe results in a significant reduction in the incidence of recurrences and late metastases by about 30-40 %.

  • Concurrent with chemotherapy and/or radiation, Mistletoe prevents or reduces toxic side effects, promotes tolerance as well as dispersion of the tumour.

  • Cancer patients treated with Mistletoe and followed up for a long time with regular laboratory investigations show no toxic symptoms, apart from the desirable rise in body temperature, transient rise in leucocytes and rise in lymphocytes. No harmful side effects have been reported. Even if Mistletoe is given intensively for many years, there is no depression of the bone marrow unlike chemotherapy and radiation.
  •     Mistletoe therapy stimulates the form-giving processes and forces in the human organism against the tendency to unregulated proliferation of the cell, which
        is seen in cancer.

     
     


       REACTIONS UNDER MISTLETOE THERAPY

  • Inflammatory reaction with increased flow of blood and swelling in the region of the tumour is seen occasionally with usual subcutaneous injections. This passes off in a few hours.

  • Slight increase in body temperature occurs which is desirable as a curative process.

  • Transient increase in the neutrophil component of white blood cell count, which persists for some hours.

  • Immune stimulation as a whole and consequent inhibition of tumour development which leads to :
            1) improvement in the general condition.
            2) increased appetite.
            3) gain in weight.
            4) improved sleep.
            5) decrease in fatigue and depression.
            6) stimulation of urinary and bowel functions.
            7) reduction or disappearance of pain.

  • Increased tolerance to irradiation and/or chemotherapy.

  • Relief of pain & subjective improvement in the patient are most striking even in advanced stages of cancer and inspite of the progressive course of the tumour.
  • Very rarely oral suspension (varumin) causes diarrhea.
