Mycotherapy as an Integrative Approach for Breast Cancer Patients

By Dr. Saskia H. Kloppenburg Vieth (Holistic Doctor in London)

27th October at 6PM

Dr. Saskia H. Kloppenburg Vieth, internationally known integrative doctor and holistic cancer care specialist, will explore how Hifas da Terra’s mushroom extracts can be used to support both treatment outcomes and quality of life for breast cancer patients.

Medicinal mushrooms have been used for millennia in traditional medicine systems like Traditional Chinese medicine, and are garnering more interest and research focus in the last few decades for their potential for integrative cancer care.

Current research shows that mushrooms are not just useful for immune stimulation, but actually immune modulation. As natural biological response modifiers, potent antioxidants, and antiinflammatories could they be part of every integrative practitioner’s toolkit when supporting their oncology patients?

  • Understand the potential of mushroom compounds as immunomodulators and how they interact with the cancer pathway
  • An overview of the key mushrooms relevant to breast cancer – Reishi, Maitake, Coriolus, Sun Agaricus (AbM), and Polyporus

Founded in 1998, Hifas da Terra (HdT) is a Spanish biotechnology company focused on research and innovation specialising in the development of nutraceuticals from certified organic medicinal mushrooms, with a special interest in developing high concentration liquid medicinal mushroom extracts for coadjuvant use in integrative oncology treatment programs.
