In recent years, the plant-based cancer remedy Iscador has been gaining increased media attention. But, Iscador has been known for its therapeutic benefits for over eighty years. As early as 1917, Rudolf Steiner suggested using injections of mistletoe extract for the treatment of cancer. His recommendations were taken up and put to clinical use by Ita Wegman, MD, a Dutch physician. Dr. Wegman, who founded a clinic that later became the Lukas clinic, also first developed Iscador in 1917.
In Iscador – Mistletoe and Cancer Therapy, Christine Murphy gathers together some of the work of doctors and clinicians who have been using Iscador today. Dr. Richard Wagner answers many of the questions about Iscador asked him by his patients during his many years of practice as an oncologist in general practice, treating cancer patients with both conventional and alternative therapies. Dr. Thomas Schuerholz, a medical doctor specializing in cancer, offers an overview of the terms, procedures, and different approaches to treating cancer. Phoebe Alexander examines the role of art therapy in healing, Dr. Erika Merz offers suggested dietary options for cancer patients, and a full list of resources allows those diagnosed with cancer to understand fully the options available to them.
This is the first and only book to date that really explores this topic. It does so in a thorough yet easy-to-understand way that is truly empowering. Highly recommended!
