We don’t treat cancer. We treat the entire body. Turbo charging your immune system is one of the best defenses against cancer.

Mistletoe therapy, also known as Viscum extract therapy, is a complementary and alternative approach used alongside conventional cancer treatments. It involves the use of extracts from the European mistletoe plant, Viscum, to support the immune system and potentially exert anti-cancer effects. Mistletoe therapy is most popular in certain parts of Europe, however is becoming more commonly used in integrative oncology centers, such as Infuze MD.

Mistletoe extracts contain various compounds, including lectins, viscotoxins, and polysaccharides, which are believed to contribute to their potential therapeutic effects. It can enhance the body's immune response against cancer cells, potentially leading to tumor inhibition, symptom relief, and improved quality of life for cancer patients.

Several proposed mechanisms of action include:

Immunomodulation: Mistletoe extracts may stimulate the immune system, promoting the activity of immune cells such as natural killer (NK) cells, T-cells, and macrophages. This enhanced immune response could target and destroy cancer cells more effectively.

Apoptosis Induction: Some research suggests that mistletoe extracts might induce apoptosis, or programmed cell death, in cancer cells, possibly slowing down tumor growth.

Anti-Inflammatory Effects: Mistletoe extracts are thought to have anti-inflammatory properties that could reduce tumor-related inflammation and improve patient well-being.

Improved Quality of Life: Mistletoe therapy is often reported to alleviate cancer-related symptoms such as fatigue, pain, and nausea, potentially enhancing the patient’s overall quality of life.

While Mistletoe therapy is generally well tolerated, it is very important to use the appropriate species of Viscum because certain tumor types respond better to one species over the other. It is also very important to follow proper dosing when using Mistletoe therapy

At Infuze MD, we use a homeopathic form of Mistletoe. This can be used as a stand alone therapy but is best when combined with other therapies we offer.
