Presentation Abstract

In today’s day and age when future cancer therapies involving cutting edge science is being spoken about, it is time we also start considering ancient medicine wisdom. The Mistletoe plant has been used in traditional healing therapies in central Europe for centuries.

A parasitic evergreen plant living on host trees, the mistletoe finds its roots in Anthroposophical medicine which believes in having deeper insights into the care of the whole human being – the whole person.

Cancer is not only to be thought of as an unlimited multiplication of cells but is the result of a decades-long process that disrupted the ‘’rhythmic balance’’ in multiple organ systems. This includes metabolism, nervous system, endocrine & immune systems as well as the patients emotional & spiritual state. Mistletoe helps to assist the patient in restoring the ‘’Sense of Rhythm’’ and coherence within the body’s regulatory systems.

The reductionistic paradigm rests on the hypothesis that every living organism is “nothing but” physical and chemical reactions and can be fully explained by interactions of its parts, while the holistic paradigm implies that the whole of a living organism is “more than” the sum of its constituent parts.

The holistic nature of mistletoe therapy is reflected in the plant’s multitude of phytonutrients. The whole plant extract is used as the diverse compounds work in synergy on multiple body systems. They activate the immune cells, damage tumour cells, and enhance mood. Collectively they support the patient’s quality of life during conventional treatments.

Mistletoe extracts alter multiple immune system activities resulting in a net effect that is considered immunomodulatory. It neither over stimulates nor suppresses the immune system, instead helps the immune system work in a balanced efficient way.

Anti-cancer effects of mistletoe are:

  1. Inducing apoptosis
  2. Limiting metastasis
  3. Repair and stabilisation of DNA

Mistletoe’s full cascade of effects on the innate immune system include:

  1. Increase in all WBCs
  2. Improved anti tumoral efficacy of Macrophages and Monocytes
  3. Increased NK cell formation in the bone marrow and increased NK cell activity and cytotoxicity.
