Excellent for stress this deep, broad acting, yet calming herb should be considered as a regenerative aid to health, in many cases. The leaves (unlike the berries) are non-toxic and safe.
The Druids held mistletoe in great reverence as a sacred plant that could remove every ill. It was gathered with great ceremony and cut from the tree with a golden knife. These days its wonderful virtues have almost been forgotten, many people think it is poisonous; this being true only of the berries, the leaves however are completely non poisonous and may be taken like any other herb on a regular basis.
Experience at Regenerative Nutrition has shown that herbal remedies with broad-spectrum normalising abilities, which also heal the nervous system, are the most valuable.
Many herbs have potential benefits not expressed in many patients due to the fact that there is much stress these days; most persons are suffering from some degree of nervous tension, tiredness, over-stimulation or enervation. The brain and nervous system has to process energy of change when any new nutritional or herbal treatment is introduced. Any chemical reaction in the body is accompanied or possibly even overseen by an electrical reaction.
Mistletoe has a wonderful impetus for a natural healing of the nervous system. Its other main actions include a kind of systemic action on the glandular system, helping to redress hormonal imbalance, including the pancreas.
Since mistletoe benefits the whole glandular system it also aids the metabolism. At the same time it favourably influences the pancreas so that through drinking mistletoe tea over a long period, diabetes loses its original cause. Especially people who suffer from chronic metabolic disorders should try to drink mistletoe tea regularly for six months.... Maria Treben (quoting from Health Through God's Pharmacy)
For hardening of the arteries mistletoe is an excellent remedy, esteemed and recommended for stroke, which would have scarcely have happened had the tea been drunk regularly. After a stroke, drink 3 cups a day for 6 weeks, 2 cups for 3 weeks and 1 cup for two weeks...Mistletoe is the best remedy for heart and circulatory complaints. I cannot emphasise mistletoe enough for circulatory problems. Since it has active substances that normalise the whole system, it lowers high and raises low blood pressure. It soothes the heart and strengthens it. All the side effects of abnormal blood pressure such as blood rushing to the head, dizziness, buzzing in the ears and visual defects disappear. Mistletoe it can be said is invaluable in all heart and circulatory disorders...Maria Treben (quoting from Health Through God's Pharmacy)
Mistletoe also has natural benefits for women's disorders
The normalised circulation brings uterine and menstrual disorders into equilibrium, especially heavy menstruation. For palpitations, difficulties in breathing and hot flushes with anxiety in the menopause mistletoe tea drunk regularly, brings relief and you will pass through the change naturally.Maria Treben (quoting from Health Through God's Pharmacy)
Mistletoe also has a good contribution in the treatment of fatigue and chronic fatigue, where hormonal and nervous systems need gently toning up at the same time.
It is an excellent relaxing nervine (nerve tonic) indicated in many cases. It will quiet, soothe and tone the nervous system. This remedy acts directly on the vagus nerve to reduce excessive heart rate whilst strengthening the walls of the peripheral capillaries. It will thus act to reduce blood pressure and ease arteriosclerosis. Where there is nervous quickening of the heart (nervous trachycardia) it can be very helpful.David Hoffmann, Herbalist
Medical herbalist Gerald Green states that mistletoe is the best herbal remedy for high blood pressure.
In summary, due to its broad-spectrum normalising and toning effects, one may use mistletoe as part of a regenerative programme (see the Core Regime
) alongside superfoods such as Pollen
From the Ayurvedic point of view Mistletoe is slightly heating (pitta) and reduces excess vata and kapha (excess air and damp, both stubborn conditions).
Other master herbs that work on the hormonal system include Peruvian Maca
and Wild Yam
. Maca has adaptogen properties; this means it will also be quite stimulating and vitalising. If the nervous system is weak then Maca should be left till strengthening of the nerves has been achieved with mistletoe as part of a therapeutic regime. Wild Yam is calming and grounding, its sphere of action is somewhat different to mistletoe, it acts more on the progesterone pathway and has less direct effect on the metabolism and circulation.
