Item description for Iscador: Mistletoe in Cancer Therapy by Christine Murphy...
In recent months, 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 Ita Wegman, MD, a Dutch physician. Dr. 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.

She is a member of the Romance Writer's of America (RWA) and the Tampa Area Romance Authors (TARA).

About The Author: "Traveling throughout the United States and locations throughout the world, I finally found the perfect place to call home. Looking out my back lanai, there is a small pond where the wild-life will gather and the flowers bloom in exotic pinks and purples. This is my place of peace and freedom that I have searched for and where my husband and crazy African Gray Parrot, Raider, hang out with me. It's the place where my creativity runs wild as I spin tales of adventure and passion. I have been writing in my head since I was a teenager and I finally realized I needed to capture these unique characters, civilizations, conflict, passion, and love in writing. To capture the strong, spirited, and powerfully attracted characters and all of their adventures and share it with others who are searching for that very thing to make their lives more exciting. If I accomplish nothing else in life, I hope to share the romantically magical worlds and the lovers that I see with all of the passionate readers out there.

Reviews - What do customers think about Iscador: Mistletoe in Cancer Therapy?
Iscador - Gift of the Mistletoe Feb 22, 2002
How glad I am to see an intelligent and artful presentation of Iscador! As a person who has been using Iscador for over 3 years to treat breast cancer (instead of chemotherapy)I have been appalled at how difficult it is to find reliable and clear information about this substance which has been used for over 75 years in Europe. You will learn about how mistletoe is grown, harvested and manufactured as well as some of the historical uses of it. It is helpful to see statistics over the 75 years of use in Europe and as well, to learn more about the anthroposophical approach to illness. The book helps to open up the philosophical basis for Iscador therapy since so much more is involved than simply taking Iscador itself. The book clearly presents what a therapeutic approach might look like while making it absolutely clear that each individual will have a different total therapy. I know that this kind of healing therapy will become a vital option for more and more people. Iscador is also used as a preventative for pre-cancerous conditions and I know people will want to use it for its tremendous strengthening effects. So bravo and thank you Christine Murphy!
Mistletoe Treatment of Cancer - A New Approach Jan 29, 2002
The book "Iscador" by Christine Murphy, Editor, fills a much needed gap. It presents the mistletoe treatment of cancer, very widely used in Middle Europe, to the English-speaking audience in an easily readable format. Iscador has its well-researched place as an extension of the conventional treatments into the holistic approach developed by Anthroposophical Medicine. In this context, it proves to be a unique possibility to enhance the cancer-fighting responses of the immune system, rather than to suppress them, as most conventional treatments do. The book covers in a well-organized presentation many frequently asked questions and leads up to a view of integrative healing that addresses the human life of body, soul and spirit. Informative are lists of references for the reader, who is interested in the scientific research and in hospitals, where mistletoe treatment is available.- I recommend this book highly to patients, doctors and friends.
No new information Oct 5, 2001
As the spouse of a cancer patient, and admittedly more pragmatic than "new age" I was dissapointed that this book doesn't add anything new to the Iscador information available from the major cancer sites on the web. It is mostly a rehash of older information with some notes on other alternative therapy and diet. It only gives very brief mention of the one significant english language study report that supports the use of Iscador. (Also available on the web)
If it is your only source of information then it is a start, if you have done any of your own research, don't bother.
