Has your doctor said you have prostate cancer? Did he find it using the PSA test? If so, it’s likely you have a very early form of the cancer.
And there’s great news for you.
These cases very often respond to some very simple therapies. In fact, if you follow a few guidelines, it’s likely you won’t need more radical treatments.
First, stay away from foods high in animal fat. This includes butter, fatty meats, cheese, etc. Fats from fish and vegetables (including vegetable oils) are fine.
You also need to eat a diet that’s high in fiber, particularly fresh vegetables and low glycemic fruits.
Next, have your doctor measure your serum estradiol level. Estradiol is a female hormone, but men make it as well. And, as men get older, fatter, or drink too much alcohol, the levels will get higher.
Also in certain men, taking DHEA can raise estradiol. Elevated estradiol can stimulate prostate cancer, so it is a good idea to make sure the levels are not too high.
If your estradiol level is greater than 1/10th of your testosterone levels, then you’ll need to lower it. This often just involves losing weight and/or cutting down on alcohol.
However, men over 65 also may need to take the medication anastrazole. This drug interferes with the conversion of testosterone into estradiol.
Take These Supplements
Next, start taking 5,000 units of vitamin D every day. After two months, have your serum calcium and your vitamin D levels checked.
The goal is to get your vitamin D level greater than 70 nanograms per milliliter (ng/ml), and maintain a normal calcium level. Keep increasing the dose until you achieve this. Sometimes very high doses are needed to do this.
Next, take iodine in the form of Iodoral. Take the 12.5 mg tablet daily. You can get Iodoral online.
Fish oil inhibits the growth of many forms of prostate cancer. I always take two capsules a day for general purposes because fish oil is so valuable in preventing many other diseases. So this is the minimum I would recommend for prostate cancer.
And, as I have reported before, the nutrient DIM (di-indole methane) has been shown to inhibit prostate cancer. So I recommend it for every man. Even those guys with a PSA velocity less than 0.03 should consider taking it just for general prostate health.
A Few More Recommendations
In addition to the above, if you are overweight, now is a good time to lose it. And the best way for a man to do that is to regularly exercise for 30 minutes, three to four times a week. Get a copy of Al Sear’s book The PACE Program to help you out with this.
Also, find a doctor in your area who has Bio-Energy testing, and consult with him regarding both exercise and metabolic therapy. The doctors offering this test (that everyone should have anyway no matter what their condition) are listed at www.bioenergytesting.com.
After you begin these changes, check your PSA every three to four months for the next year. The treatment is successful if your PSA remains static, or if the PSA velocity is less than .03.
If that’s the case, as it usually is, this is the only form of treatment you will ever need. If it’s not working, which happens occasionally, then you will need to discuss with your doctor if more aggressive therapy is needed.
And one last thing: Sometimes an elevated PSA is due to an infection in the prostate. Discuss this possibility with your doctor and treat it if necessary.
Following this program can work wonders in your fight against prostate cancer.
