The research and application of mistletoe therapy is expanding in Europe, and a new trial is currently underway in the United States at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. The recent course in Baltimore, Maryland offered a review of the “best practices”, along with the insights gained from mistletoe research and clinical application in clinics from around the world. Some of the most experienced and knowledgeable allopathic and naturopathic clinicians in the field introduced participants to decades of experience gained in the best European clinics, and combined it with an overview of current integrative and naturopathic practices that are synergistic with mistletoe.

The practical and comprehensive course covered all aspects of research and application** and was certified by the Medical Section at the Goetheanum. CEUs were offered through the Maine Association of Naturopathic Doctors (MAND).

The 2019 course was well-attended and well-received! Many practitioners expressed interest, but were unable to attend,
and feedback made it evident there is real desire and need for another course of it's kind.
In that spirit, we are now actively exploring the possibility of another course in fall of 2020.
In the meantime, a recording of this 2019 course is being prepared to be made available for purchase.
To stay informed of announcements about the next course and details about the 2019 course recording
