Iscador

Iscador®
Weleda Iscador® preparations are extracted from the mistletoe plant and are becoming increasingly known and accepted in Europe for their valuable contribution to cancer therapy. As the use of Iscador® has become more widespread, its mode of action has been the subject of more research and medical trials.
Its actions are many sided and complex, however it is now recognised that one side of its activity comes from stimulating parts of the immune system that can slow the growth of cancer cells. Many patients also report an improved quality of life such as feeling better and more positive, and also needing less pain relief. For these reasons, Iscador® is often used in conjunction with conventional therapies such as surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy.
Proper use for Iscador® requires the diagnostic, prescribing and patient management skills of your doctor. Iscador® is available only by your doctor's prescription, and can be obtained directly from Weleda. A doctor trained in the use of Iscador® may also recommend other Weleda medicines. Patients often find that these can help in complementary ways to conventional or other alternative medicines.
Iscador® is an extract in water from the mistletoe plant. Mistletoe grows on many different types of tree such as Pine (Pini-Iscador P), Oak (Quercus-Iscador Qu) and Apple (Mali-Iscador M). It has been found that different types of illnesses respond better to mistletoe from specific host trees, so for example mistletoe from pine trees, Iscador P may be used for skin cancer.
Your doctor will normally prescribe a course of Iscador® of increasing strength. Your doctor or nurse may also ask you to monitor your temperature, actually looking for a small rise after the application. This passes within a few hours and is beneficial, indicating that your immune system is responding to the Iscador®. Once you have found the Iscador® strength that achieves this temperature rise you may be asked to continue on maintenance therapy using this same strength of Iscador®.
There are very few side-effects from Iscador® and it can be used in conjunction with other medications where other medical conditions are present.
Weleda Iscador® is available in boxes of 7 ampules. In the U.S. it is registered as a homeopathic medicine under the trade name of Iscar®.
Please ask your doctor, nurse or Weleda if you have any other questions.
