The new urine test for prostate cancer, Progensa was approved by the FDA on 12 Feb 2012. The Progensa test is positive in 90% of prostate cancer patients. Go here to learn more: http://www.pca3.org/public/
A Reasonable Conventional Prostate Cancer Treatment
A fairly new prostate cancer technique is gaining popularity. It is one of the first reasonable cancer treatments to come out of conventional medicine. The green laser procedure is effective in:
- Reducing prostate size by vaporizing diseased tissue
- Avoiding healthy tissue simple due to its color and the color of the laser
- Allowing continued sexual and urinary activity
- Providing rapid recovery
This procedure is done in an arthroscopic manner so you can go home the same day.
Green laser treatment is a palliative procedure; it relieves symptoms. The cancer will continue to develop if an effective cancer treatment such as Cantron, Essiac Tea or Paw Paw is not used. See the Treatment Selection Methods section of the Home page.
Since this is an AMA/FDA accepted procedure, you can ask your convention doctor about it. But, don't forget that cancer is a multifaceted disease, visit the Cancer Essentials* page to learn what you can add to your arsenal regardless of the primary treatment you select. Then, you will have a more complete approach.
Old Conventional Prostate Cancer Treatment
A good example of conventional cancer treatment is prostate surgery. For prostate cancer patients who have surgery (a prostate):
- 17% have difficulty urinating for life
- 28% become incontinent
- 50% lose their sex life forever
Newer Conventional Prostate Cancer Treatment
Androgen Deprivation is a popular prostate cancer treatment. The results of a paper published by David Berman, an assistant professor of pathology, urology and oncology at The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and a long list of doctors and which was published in the Oct. 1 issue of Cancer Research, states that using Androgen Deprivation makes it "more likely to spread (prostate cancer cells) throughout the body."

Soy is rich in flavonoids, which contain components that resemble estrogen. If you have a hormone-dependent tumor, such as a breast or prostate malignancy, flavonoid-rich foods exacerbates these conditions.
Avoid Green and Black Tea
Green and black tea are also high in flavonoids.
The following supplements have been used as support for prostate cancer patients as well as preventative supplements.
- DIM Di-indolylmethane
- Curcumin from from Turmeric
- Calcium D-Glucarate
- Quercetion and Bromelain
This is the active ingredient in most of the popular prostate preventatives such as saw pimento and pumpkin seed. Its effectiveness in reducing prostate swelling is clearly demonstrated in the following randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind clinical trial published in Lancet. 1995 Jun 17;345(8964):1529-32. The study was run by the Department of Urology, Ruhr-University, Bochum, Germany.
200 patients (recruited between April and October 1993) with symptomatic benign prostatic hyperplasia (enlarged prostate) were treated with either 20 mg beta-sitosterol (which contains a mixture of phytosterols) three times per day or placebo. Changes in urine flow parameters: beta-sitosterol treatment resulted in increasing peak flow (15.2 [5.7] mL/s from 9.9 [2.5] mL/s), and decrease of mean residual urinary volume (30.4 [39.9] mL from 65.8 [20.8] mL). These parameters did not change in the placebo group (p < 0.01). Significant improvement in symptoms and urinary flow parameters show the effectiveness of beta-sitosterol.
This result demonstrated the usefulness of beta-sitosterol in the treatment and prevention of prostate cancer.
There is no established dosage for prostate prevention, but doses of up to 6 grams have been used for colesterol control. One source for prostate cancer prevention listed dosage as low as 60 to 135 mg.

DIM (Di-indolylmethane) might be the secret of the prostate health. Commercially raised beef, chicken and pork contain added hormones to speed up growth increasing the estrogen in your body. Soy additives that act like estrogen and which are listed as vegetable protein are found in many processed foods and even in vitamins and medicines. Also, as men get older, we produce more fat cells. Fat cells produce an enzyme called aromatase which turns testosterone into a powerful form of estrogen, called estradiol. The net result is a tremendous increase in estrogen as your testosterone levels decline.
When estrogen goes up and testosterone goes down, men experience weight gain (especially around the belly), flabby muscles, weaker erections, poor memory, mood swings, circulatory problems including blood clots, sinus problems and PSA levels rise. Also, the risk of abnormal cell growth skyrockets. DIM (di-indolylmethane) reverses this estrogen build-up and erase these symptoms. It converts bad estrogen into "good" estrogen by-products. These good estrogen by-products trigger more testosterone to be released in your bloodstream. Having more free testosterone works wonders for your sex drive, energy levels, fitness and prostate health. DIM shrinks swollen prostates down to normal size and lowers your PSA levels. It is also a potent immune booster, anti-viral agent, increases energy levels, and builds lean, hard muscle.
As of Jan 2010, no side effects have been reported.
Typical dosage is 150 mg of DIM, two times a day. For ordering supplements from this web site see the Ordering section at the bottom of this page.

Calcium D-Glucarate removes excess hormones that can stimulate tumor growth. This has been proven with animal testing and with human tumor cells. It has been able to stop the growth of breast, colon, liver, lung, prostate and skin tumors and prevented them from even starting. It also helps the body remove toxins.
Typical dosage for cancer patients is between 500 and 1000 mg given twice a day.

From About.com Quercetin is a powerful antioxidant. It is also a natural anti-histamine, and anti-inflammatory. Research shows that quercetin may help to prevent cancer, especially prostate cancer.
Bromelain is believed to be an effective blood thinner and anti-inflammatory that works by breaking down fibrin, a blood-clotting protein that can impede good circulation and prevent tissues from draining properly. This makes it useful in removing excess tumor mass after the tumor has broken down.
Vitamin D is being tested as treatment for prostate cancer. It has made it to clinical trials. See this article from the Canadian Press**.
Hormone Balancing Machines
In recent years Quantum biofeedback machines have appeared in hospitals in China and England. The reason is simple, when conventional medicine does not work, the medicine of the future might. I primarily use my machine to eliminate hot flashes which are the result of female hormone imbalance. The thing I like about doing this work is that results are immediate after one or two sessions either the hot flashes stop completely or I return the clients money. The machine is successful more than half the time. To learn more about how therapy and how it can be performed remotely, go to the Energy Balancing Biofeedback* page.
Scientific proof of the health benefit of humor can be found in the December 2006 issue of The International Journal of Psychiatry in Medicine. Scientists from the Norwegian University of Science and St. Olav’s Hospital found that the group that scored higher on sense of humor (all had the same critical condition - kidney failure), “increased their odds for survival by on average of 31%.”
I have purchased many joke books and have always been disappointed. However, people are always sending me jokes. Most of them were only OK, but the really good ones, I kept and edited. After 15 years I had 170 pages of really good, concisely written jokes. I have sold out of the books and will soon put the jokes on a CD read by my editor who has a great Enlish accent. If you would like to be notified when the CD is available simply send a blank email by clicking here and sending the resultant email. No comment is needed.
