Another GREAT Anthroposopphical Medicine Resource

For those interested in the world of Anthroposophical Medicine, I have just learned of an invaluable resource from Dr. Steven Johnson, D.O., a gifted doctor integrating Anthroposophical medicine and other wholistic modalities into his practice for over fifteen years. He helped develop and co-found the AnthroMed Library, a web-based repository for articles about Anthroposophical Medicine ---

The AnthroMed Library provides a wealth of information and links on Anthroposophical medicine including medical references about Iscador Mistletoe, used in Europe as an immune stimulant and for cancer therapy.

Mistletoe 101: While the raw plant and berries of mistletoe are poisonous, when made into specially prepared extracts they are safe and offer health benefits. In Europe mistletoe extracts are used as immune stimulants and for cancer therapy. Mistletoe is a semi-parasitic plant that grows on a variety of trees including oak, pine and apple. Currently Mistletoe is not legal in the United States except for clinical trials which the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM) is working on: . In Europe, a common mistletoe remedy is manufactured by the Weleda company under the name of Iscador and has been used for over eighty years. See the website for more information:
