Contraindications for mistletoe therapy

There are very few situations in which mistletoe therapy is not indicated: 

  • You have tuberculosis. 
  • You have a highly feverish or inflammatory/infectious disease. 
  • You are allergic to mistletoe, which is extremely rare. As you know, redness at the injection site is not an allergy, but a desired reaction.

Even if an allergy-like ("pseudoallergic") reaction occurs this does not mean that you do not generally tolerate the mistletoe. The doctor can then choose a preparation with a very low concentration and slowly increase it. 

So far, no effects have been reported that would argue against use during pregnancy and lactation.
