Mistletoe herb cut leaves and young twigs are used by herbalists in the creation of remedies which purportedly treat a variety of ailments and conditions. Historically mistletoe has been promoted as a treatment for conditions as diverse as menopause symptoms, chronic headaches, seizures, whooping cough, gallbladder and liver problems. In modern times, mistletoe has been promoted as a possible treatment for cancer – and as a way of reducing the effects of radiotherapy and chemotherapy.
Herbalists may combine Mistletoe herb cut with other herbs and ingredients in the formulation of particular remedies. The herb may also be simply brewed into a calming tea. It has been claimed that mistletoe can help protect against cancer, as well as treat it. There have also been preliminary medical trials that suggest it may reduce the symptoms of high blood pressure, especially headaches and dizziness.
Viscum album is the Latin name for European mistletoe – also known as common mistletoe or simply ‘mistletoe’. While Viscum album is purportedly an effective treatment for a diverse array of conditions, it can be toxic if consumed in high amounts.
