During her battle with breast cancer, Suzanne Somers chose to reject conventional treatment and opted for a natural treatment using mistletoe instead.
Yes, you read that right, we said mistletoe.
It’s not that surprising actually. After all, “mistletoe, known to the ancients as ‘all heal,’ has long been used by herbalists to treat a variety of health problems, including headaches, lung disease, internal bleeding, nervous conditions – and even cancerous tumours,” explains Dr Allan Spreen in Tomorrow’s Cancer Cures TODAY.
Why Mistletoe could be your best bet at wiping out breast cancer for good
“Early in the 20th century, naturalist Rudolf Steiner developed the first extracts of mistletoe for injection. He theorised that it might help treat cancer because, like cancer, mistletoe is a parasitic growth that eventually kills its host,” continues Dr Spreen.
And guess what? Steiner’s instinct proved to be spot on.
Over the years, about 1,000 in vitro studies have shown that mistletoe or its main constituents do have some significant anticancer activity.
According to these studies, “mistletoe has the ability to kill various types of cancer cells [including those that cause breast cancer] while simultaneously stimulating the immune system, thus fighting progression of the disease,” says Dr Spreen.
And the best part, mistletoe treatment, unlike radiation and chemotherapy, doesn’t come with any known side effects.
How does mistletoe treatment work?
Unfortunately, you can’t simply brew up a cup of mistletoe tea, warns Dr Spreen. “Although mistletoe is available in herb form, it’s important not to self-treat with it, as the fruit of many varieties of mistletoe are actually poisonous if ingested.”
“So how do you use mistletoe to fight breast cancer then?” you ask.
“Effective mistletoe therapies are usually given by injection into the muscle (intramuscular, or IM), beneath the skin (subcutaneous, or Sub-Q), or into a vein (intravenous, or IV),” says Dr Spreen.
Mistletoe is marketed under various brand names including Iscador in South Africa. If you’re diagnosed with breast cancer – or any other form of cancer for that matter – speak to your doctor about including Iscador as part of your cancer treatment plan.
