According to Wikipedia “Mistletoe is the common name for most obligate hemiparasitic plants in the order Santalales. These plants attach to and penetrate the branches of a tree or shrub by a structure called the haustorium, through which they absorb water and nutrients from the host plant.
The name mistletoe originally referred to the species Viscum album (European mistletoe, of the family Santalaceae in the order Santalales); it was the only species native to Great Britain and much of Europe. A separate species, Viscum cruciatum, occurs in Southwest Spain and Southern Portugal, as well as North Africa, Australia and Asia.”
In homeopathy, this medicine is often used in the name of “Viscum album”.

Why use Mistletoe?
Proponents say that mistletoe stimulates the immune system of our body and thereby, letting our body to fight against cancer and other diseases. The immune system gets destroyed once there is malignancy in our body. It has been reported that mistletoe extracts have long been successfully used as a remedy in various types of cancers including cancer of the cervix, ovaries, breasts, lungs, liver, pancreas, kidneys, stomach, and colon and also as a treatment for sarcoma, lymphoma and leukemia. It has also been reported that mistletoe extracts injected directly or near a tumor may sometimes slower the growth rate, even in advanced malignancy. Moreover it reduces the side effects of chemotherapy and radiation therapy and thereby provides a better quality of life to the cancer patient.
Evidence behind…
Laboratory studies have found that mistletoe kills cancer cells and stimulates the immune system. Scientists working on mistletoe have able to identify the most important component in mistletoe is lectins or proteins. A series of experiments have suggested that mistletoe may have some potential to kill cancer cells but these results have yet to be reflected into human trials. There have been clinical trials resulted into marked improvement in the survival of cancer patients, although the experimental design had some flaws. More rigorous research studies are needed.
