Mistletoe and the Emerging Future of Integrative Oncology

Human health is an intricate collaboration between behavior, the environment, and luck. Despite humanity's best attempts to combat disease with science and medicine, when that knowledge isn't enough, sadly it often ends in defeat - a bleak reality of cancer that costs billions annually as society strives to discover more about it and devise treatments for its consequences.

Nowadays, more traditional medical doctors are starting to discover the value of an integrated health approach. This book introduces a particular therapy and highlights the benefits of integrative health practices such as anthroposophical extended medicine, naturopathy, and other holistic systems.

For years, the European medical community has supported mistletoe therapy as an effective cancer treatment, and it is now slowly gaining acceptance in North America. Besides its positive effects on health, this remarkable plant also offers a wealth of other incredible benefits.

By bringing back ancient therapeutic wisdom, this therapy demonstrates how modern medicine can extend its reach and reestablish a more human-centered approach.

This book follows the syllabus of the three-day practitioner training run by the Physicians’ Association for Anthroposophic Medicine (PAAM).

Each chapter offers a concise summary of some of the most fundamental lectures. It should not be mistaken as an alternative to attending this intensive training, but rather it serves as a brief introduction.

This book is not meant to serve as a treatment or diagnostic guide, but rather to prepare practitioners for mistletoe therapy training and make the relevant information available in an easy-to-understand format for anyone interested in learning about this cancer treatment.
