The herbal medicine ISOREL® – a mistletoe preparation for cancer therapy

Cancer diseases are spreading more and more. According to official cancer research sources, almost 500,000 people in Germany develop cancer every year. Conventional, allopathic treatments are usually very rich in side effects.

Project initiators operating within the framework of the LUKAS Foundation for Human-Appropriate Medicine have been working intensively for many years on research and development of an effective mistletoe treatment as part of cancer therapy. Unfortunately, the mistletoe preparation ISOREL®, which is particularly suitable for this purpose, could no longer be produced in the previous way from 2012. This was the trigger to endeavour to produce ISOREL® again under particularly suitable conditions. This wonderful medicine has been available again since 2023.

In addition to those suffering from cancer, those affected by exhaustion or burn-out can also recover with the help of mistletoe; it has a very invigorating effect. The risk of relapses can be reduced as well as the chance of a new cancer. When using ISOREL®  as an injection, the patient can experience warming and strengthening that have a lasting effect on the tumor growth process and can contribute to healing.

ISOREL® is made from mistletoe as an answer to the existential need of cancer patients. Although the mistletoe has always been a strong bush on a host tree, such as the fir, it becomes something completely new during the very complicated manufacturing process. When the summer sap drops from above into the horizontally flowing winter sap, a vortex is formed, in which it is repeatedly stopped by the changing direction of flow. The mistletoe forms an element of the upright in the shape of a cross.

If, after an overall very complicated preparation, this remedy is given to the patient by the doctor, the new formation caused by the disease is brought in a direction corresponding to the overall organism – that is, recovery. Overall, the patient should be able to recover from mistletoe, which is new to itself. He can find himself anew in the healthy self and is allowed to be himself. In addition to cancer patients, those suffering from exhaustion can also heal through Viscum album, that is, through mistletoe; it has a very invigorating effect. ISOREL® is a very well tolerated drug. The patient experiences a pleasant, warming and strengthening effect. He becomes confident and cheerful too.

ISOREL® quality features with regard to its components and its procurement

There are various reasons why a remedy, such as ISOREL® ampoules, can be used successfully in mistletoe therapy. One is the potential that a plant itself has. In the case of mistletoe, these include various aspects from botany and morphology of mistletoe, such as spherical formation, blooming in winter, the roots on the host tree. In addition, the presence of certain ingredients such as viscotoxins, lectins, minerals, polysaccharides, flavonoids and much more is important. Of course, it is also important to deal extremely carefully with issues relating to the quality of the raw material in terms of purity, but also in relation to the location of the harvest and the time of harvest. The mistletoe for the ISOREL® remedy is harvested by the employees themselves, at rural locations in Austria, observing certain constellation-related criteria, or from biologically controlled areas.
