  7. Hi Everyone
  8. I have a cancer patient who would like to self administer Iscador. So far, I have only done Iscador with patients who have someone else administer it. I would like some clarification on the best way for a person to do this on themselves. Is the location still the abdomen? Is it best done sitting up? I have been trying to imagine doing this on myself, but it seems awkward. Any tips much appreciated.
  10. If anyone has a handout for this, it would be much appreciated too.
  12. Thanks

  20. I would give a couple shots to my patient to do at home since he didn't have money to see me for each injection. I just trained him. After a couple weeks of watching me do it, I had him administer them in front of me until I was confident he could do it on his own. It's just like insulin, which people do all the time, only even more superficial. You just make a wheel on the abdomen, preferably on the side of the cancer, but you want to alternate spots to avoid scarring and to get proper immune reaction.
  22. I really miss it now that we can't get it (legally) here in the states. I had a great response with a stage IIIb melanoma patient who is still cancer free after 3 yrs, with only 1 yr of Iscador before the FDA stopped shipment in the US. He did no other conventional treatment other than his initial surgery of the lesion and 4 lymph nodes, so hard to say if they just got it all, or if it was a combo. Still, I loved using it.

  34. Where are people getting it now that it is illegal in the US? I would like to start using it.

  43. I was told to call a Canadian pharmacy and have them unofficially send me some, or find an ND willing to send it to me. The pharmacy wouldn't mail it because the FDA did not permit it inside the US. And I felt uncomfortable asking someone to send me vials. I know some people are just having their patients get it on their own, from Canada or Mexico, and bringing it in to then be injected. Again...I feel uncomfortable doing that. if I had cancer though, I know I'd do anything to get my hands on it. It's so ridiculous. The FDA stopped it due to a labeling issue, not a safety issue. Such a crock. I know Suzanne Somers was a big advocate...I never checked her website to see if she had any resources. Maybe things have changed. I haven't called Weleda in a while - they were who I was getting it from.
