Can Viscum album (Mistletoe) Homeopathic Medicine Reduce Blood Pressure?

Can Viscum album (Mistletoe) Homeopathic Medicine Reduce Blood Pressure? A Pilot Study has been published in the Journal of Evidence Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine which looks at a rarely used homeopathic remedy - and it's use in treating hypertension. Interestingly the medicine that was given to the patients was a preparation of Mistletoe - which has a long history of use throughout Europe, Asia and Africa - and has traditionally been used as a cardiac medication. The researchers found that the Mistletoe extract lowered blood pressure safely and that it also lowered serum triglycerides. The researchers comment that they would like to see Mistletoe extract being used to treat high blood pressure in future, both on it's own and in conjunction with conventional medicines where appropriate.
