Anyone try iscador injections(mistletoe) ? I've been giving these shot to myself 3 times per week. Just wondering if anyone else has tried these?

Yes, I get Iscador injections. I didn't start them until I was NED but they seem to be keeping my CA-125 down. Before I started it, my CA-125 had crept up, from 2 to 4. Now it seems to stay at 2. It goes up to 3 between maintenance doses, but back down to 2, after my maintenance.
Okay, not such an amazing story. There is another woman I know, however, who started it last summer, just after finishing chemo for a recurrance. Her CA-125 was going up, even with chemo. It started at 51.4 and had dropped to 39.1 after a month on Iscador. Today, she got her results back, and it is 11.4. She has been fighting this disease for 9 years, with 2 recurrances. She keeps saying that she knows she would have been back into surgery or chemo by now, but the Iscador has saved her from that.

Hi 3 Wishes

i quit taking iscador bc my numbers were rising. Ca 125 is now 240. I'm in a clinical PARzp trial. Hopefully this will begin too bring it down.  Yet he iscador was $100 a box, don't take insurance. I got it from Dr Johnston in Louisville Ky at the Evergreen Center. It's been a few month since I ordered any. Not even sure if it is sold anymore.

i have 3c pappillary serous adeno carcinoma. What is tnbc?

Hi 2timothy1 7,

TNBC Triple Negative Breast Cancer....so I guess it helped at some point and then it didn't.

Hello again 3 wishes,

When I started taking iscador, I was in remission. I was taking them as sort a maintenance thing. I was only in remission from the end of May till December, hard to say whether they helped me or not.
