I have been checking out.
Many German Doctors in germany use this to treat many types of cancers.
They use mistletoe extract mixed with low doses of Chemo, with IV drip
Has anyone heard of this???????
I have found a doctor in Tronto, Canada who uses theis theraphy.
And only one place in the US which is in Michagan.
Please let me know

Hi Vince,
In Sweden many cancer patients try Icador (mistletoe) for different types of cancer. As far as I understand nobody has been able to show any positive result in studies :(. When I look at internet I read that Iscador is immunemodulating like for example echinacea and that type of drugs are not recommended for patients with diseases like MDS since they can increase the risk of leukemia.

Did you read what Peter wrote in this thread some weeks ago about Astragalus?
Kind regards
