Anxiety, Cancer, Hypertension and Insomnia

             Over the centuries herbalist have discovered many holistic applications for Mistletoe. There is in fact a scientific understanding of the chemicals inside the herb. This is thanks to phytochemist who, unlike the FDA, actually do have an interest in natural remedies and their potential for healing. On this page you'll gain insight into the holistic healing applications regarding this plant, some cultural folk lore of ancient origins, and a scientific understanding of alternative medicine in general.


Mistletoe has served as a symbol for love for as long as anyone can remember. This is likely because of its historic use as an aphrodisiac that was used to increase sexual potency. It's said to have both masculine and feminine energies. Elixirs prepared in the sun are a preference by Shamanic practitioners with this one. In Shamanic-like practices, it's used to banish unwanted spirits and nightmares. Several cultures consider it a talisman or symbol for romance.


In alternative healing practices Mistletoe is commonly used for the treatment of: Anxiety, Cancer, Hypertension and Insomnia to name a few. The phytochemicals produced by the species during its life time produce anti-spasmodic and nervine effects. In Europe, extracts of it have been extensively studied in the treatment of cancer. There, it was also used throughout history for treating epilepsy and other convulsive disorders. It's considered a narcotic that has powerful effects on the nervous system. Herbalist also believe that it can lower blood pressure, treat arthritic pain and even snoring.


Phoradendron flavescens is added to infusions in alternative health practices. The idea of an infusion is to combine plants which work synergistically together in order to compliment each others properties. Certain holistic herbs should not be combined though. It's a precise art which requires much knowledge and practice. Plant allys that share properties for dealing with Insomnia can unite to create a powerful elixir.

These researchers are supremely trained and educated professionals who seek to understand the mechanisms of action within medicinal herbs. In turns out that nature is in fact, a extraordinarily sophisticated and intelligent pharmacy. On a final note I would like to encourage anyone who is exceptionally interested in these sacred health restoration tools to study this in college. Together we can expose the truth to the minds of the masses.
