Helleborus is a rediscovered traditional medicinal plant. Two species are particularly suitable for integrative cancer therapy:
- Helleborus niger, the Christmas rose
- Helleborus foetidus, also called bear´s foot
Like the mistletoe, Helleborus has its own, unusual botanical features. Helleborus niger and Helleborus foetidus differ in many respects, but both are evergreen and have their flowering period in winter when all other plants are dormant.
Integrative cancer therapy with Helleborus niger
The effect of Helleborus niger is primarily due to its inhibition of pro-inflammatory cytokines, making it suitable for treating late-stage cancer. In advanced stages, signs of inflammation are almost always present.
Integrative cancer therapy with Helleborus niger also helps patients become more emotionally stable and centered. It has proven particularly beneficial for tumor patients experiencing agitation and anxiety, as well as patients with brain tumors or brain edema who are suffering from headaches and impaired consciousness. In case of brain tumor radiation therapy, it can help to stay focused and clear-headed.
In Germany, Helleborus niger has been registered as a homeopathic medicinal product of Anthroposophic Medicine. The German Federal Institute for Drugs and Medical Devices (BfArM) has approved a positive monograph of the Commission C which verified the efficacy and safety of H. niger.
Thanks to its anti-inflammatory properties, Helleborus niger can also be used to treat rheumatic diseases (rheumatoid arthritis, arthrosis, and collagenoses) and has also shown beneficial effects in patients with dementia and anxiety/depression.
