Mistletoe has been used medicinally for centuries for an array of ailments. During the 1920s, Rudolph Steiner, the founder of anthroposophy, advocated its use as a cancer preventive. Iscador, as the mistletoe preparation is known, is a licensed drug in Germany and Switzerland, where over half of all cancer patients use it or one of its variations as part of their treatment. Yet it has only recently become known here, in part because actress Suzanne Somers used it to treat her breast cancer. A compilation of mostly previously published works by physicians and clinicians, this work acts as a primer on Iscador, integrative cancer treatment, and anthroposophical medicine. Murphy, who also edits the anthroposophical medicine journal Lilipoh, explains the process of making Iscador and provides an extensive resource section that cancer patients may find especially useful. Because this is the only English-language book on Iscador for the lay reader, it would make a good addition to hospital consumer health collections and larger public library health collections.
