Contraindications for mistletoe therapy

There are only a 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 very rare. 

Even if an allergy-like ("pseudoallergic") reaction occurs this does not mean that you do not generally tolerate mistletoe therapy. 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.
