Study: Mistletoe Effective Against Colon Cancer


Mistletoe gives the kiss of death to cancer

In a new study, Zahra Lotfallani, a researcher at University of Adelaide in Australia,
(that’s her in the pic) found that one type of Mistletoe extract called Fraxini, when compared to chemotherapy, was more effective against colon cancer cells and less toxic.

“Mistletoe extract has been considered a viable alternative therapy overseas for many years, but it’s important for us to understand the science behind it,” says one of Ms Lotfollahi’s supervisors, the University of Adelaide’s Professor Gordon Howarth, a Cancer Council Senior Research Fellow.

“Although mistletoe grown on the ash tree was the most effective of the three extracts tested, there is a possibility that mistletoe grown on other, as yet untested, trees or plants could be even more effective,” said Howarth.

Now this is really not a new discovery as mistletoe has been used to treat cancer for nearly 75 years (mostly outside the U.S. of course). One survey showed that over 60% of German cancer clinics use mistletoe in some form, and often in conjunction with standard treatments.

It is always encouraging to see more evidence of its effectiveness. Not that we necessarily need any more evidence…

There are over 500 published studies on mistletoe and cancer on pubmed

FYI: The most commonly used form of mistletoe used for cancer treatment is a homeopathic preparation of European Mistletoe called Iscador, which is made from lacto-fermented extract of mistletoe and is also one of the alternative cancer therapies used and popularized by Suzanne Somers.

Speaking of Suzanne, her book Knockout: Interviews with Doctors Who Are Curing Cancer–And How to Prevent Getting It in the First Place is a great read and features the wisdom of Dr. Nicholas Gonzalez, Dr. James Forsythe, Burton Goldberg, and more.

Another FYI: Dr. Thomas Cowan in San Francisco is a U.S. doctor who treats cancer with Iscador. Here’s his site:

    Magnets? Korean scientists. The information/data is sketchy. More than half the exposed cells were destroyed by magnetic activation, whereas no untreated cells were affected.

    In another experiment, magnetically-induced apoptosis in zebra fish caused the creatures to grow abnormal tails.

    Details of the research, led by Professor Jinwoo Cheon, from Yonsei University in Seoul, Korea, appear in the journal Nature Materials.

    Where do I get the mistletoe extract to treat the colon cancer?
