Recently, the plant-based cancer therapy 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 Dr. Ita Wegman, a Dutch physician. Wegman, who founded a clinic that later became the Lukas clinic, also first developed Iscador in 1917.
In this book, Christine Murphy gathers together some of the work of doctors and clinicians who have been using Iscador today. Dr. Richard Wagner, a German physician, 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 cancer.
