Helleborus Intravenous Therapy

The Intravenous Helleborus Therapy is a unique treatment option that harnesses the medicinal power of the Helleborus plant, also known as the Christmas Rose. This therapy is part of our comprehensive range of services designed to promote optimal health and wellbeing.

What is Helleborus?

Helleborus, commonly known as the Christmas Rose, is a winter-blooming plant that belongs to the crowfoot family (Ranunculaceae). It is known for its beautiful blossoms that take up to four years to appear. The plant thrives in limestone soils and prefers the semi-shaded borders of forests, such as beech groves.

Helleborus has been used in traditional medicine for centuries due to its potent pharmacological properties. The black rhizome of the plant contains the most active substances, but beneficial compounds permeate the entire plant. These substances include Beta ecdysone, Helleborin, Makranthosid, and protoanemonin, which have demonstrated various health benefits, including anti-inflammatory, anti-epileptic, anxiolytic, and cytotoxic effects. The plant also contains the flavonoid kaempferol, which has antioxidative, antitumoral, and apoptotic effects.

In the domain of cancer treatment, Helleborus has gained recognition for its potential to support traditional therapies, offering hope and an additional line of defense for patients navigating this challenging journey. At Integrated Medicine and Holistic Healthcare clinic , we harness the power of this remarkable plant in our Intravenous Helleborus Therapy, providing a natural complement to our integrative approach to health and wellness.

How Does Helleborus Work?

Helleborus, also known as the Christmas rose, is a potent medicinal herb that has been used in various treatments, most notably in cancer therapy. This plant, a member of the crowfoot family, is rich in pharmacologically active substances that permeate the entire plant, with the black rhizome containing the most potent compounds.

The root of the Helleborus plant contains Beta ecdysone, a substance known for its cytotoxic, anti-epileptic, anxiolytic properties, and its ability to improve cognitive function and reduce CNS inflammation. Additionally, the roots contain Helleborin and Makranthosid, which act as a diuretic, expectorant, anti-inflammatory, and have apoptosis effects on several cancer cell lines.

The leaves and blossoms of the Helleborus plant are rich in the flavonoid kaempferol, which has antioxidative, antitumoral, and apoptotic effects. As a whole plant extract, Helleborus demonstrates immunomodulating and anti-rheumatic effects via lymphocyte proliferation and reduction of pro-inflammatory cytokines.
