Effects of mistletoe therapy on quality of life

Mistletoe therapy helps to awaken and support the powers of recovery – the disease no longer seems insurmountable, life has a future again. Many clinical studies have shown that mistletoe therapy noticeably improves quality of life: 

  • Appetite returns
  • Weight increases – the body gains strength
  • Sleep improves
  • The susceptibility to infections reduces
  • The cold feeling with shivering and freezing, which often occurs with cancer, stops
  • Pain subsides
  • Performance increases
  • The mood brightens and depression subsides
  • Emotional stability grows. 
  • The fear of the illness, which often dominates thoughts and actions especially in the time following diagnosis, diminishes
  • It becomes easier to distance oneself from the cancer disease and to concentrate on life itself instead
  • You are doing something to treat yourself and are no longer just the object of therapeutic measures
  • You are once again in a better position to make decisions and set priorities in your life. The disease no longer dominates your whole life
  • You come back to yourself and to what constitutes you and your path in life
