You or your family member has probably recently been diagnosed with Prostate Cancer (PC) or you would not be looking at this. There are many alternative prostate cancer treatments to sift through to try to find the ones that make sense and will work for you.
I was diagnosed in 1999 and I am still here in 2019. I know the shock and fear that happens when the doctor says "You have cancer!" Hopefully you will take time to investigate the many avenues available to you outside of the cut, burn, and poison offered by conventional medicine that are treatments and not cures.
Your main task right now is to not panic and rush into any suggested protocol offered by your diagnosing physician. You didn't get PC last week or even last month. Don't let the doctor rush you into some procedure that will pay his bills and possibly hasten the progress of your disease or create terrible side effects. You have time to research alternative prostate cancer treatments and find your path. PC is usually slow growing and may have started as long ago as 10 years, and only now is able to be detected.
Conventional cancer treatments are a miserable failure for the most part. If you are cured of cancer using conventional therapies, it is usually in spite of the archaic and harmful medical treatment. Treatments are based on a 5 year cure rate since the cancer usually returns at some point. You can be designated as cured 5 years after diagnosis and be dead from cancer a day after the 5 year period. No other malady in all medical history has this time limitation. You are either cured or not!
Hopefully you were diagnosed by a digital rectal exam (DRE) and not a needle biopsy. If you haven't been rushed into a biopsy and still have a choice, go for the DRE.
If the doctor feels something irregular during the exam, persuade him to use a 3D Color-Doppler ultrasound or an MRI to get the size and location of the prostate cancer. It is not an invasive procedure and nowhere near the cost of a needle biopsy. But, mainly, it is not dangerous whereas the invasive needle biopsy causes bleeding of the prostate and possible spread of the cancer.
Another test that you should consider is a saliva panel test of all eight male hormones and having a doctor look at them. Usually men with high testosterone levels do not get PC. If yours is on the low side the doctor may prescribe an oral or injected supplement.
You will also need a maximum panel blood test to find out if you are deficient in any category. Proper supplementation can help in correcting any deficiency. I would not take any prescription drug or supplements until you have decided a course of action. Absolutely do not allow any hormone or estrogen reducing drugs. They are extremely harmful.
Now that you have hopefully managed not to be harmed while proceeding through the initial diagnosis and discovery, you can calm down and really do your research on the alternative prostate cancer treatments. I am going to briefly review two approaches that we think are worthy of your research:
When I was diagnosed with PC, I did not accept the urgent "do it right now" recommendation of the urologist/surgeon to remove the prostate. The treatment recommended by the diagnosing doctor will usually follow whatever their medical specialty is.
Even though I had started to look for alternative prostate cancer treatments, after studying the radio-active seed implant program, I decided to go this route since a good friend had done this and was basically satisfied. So, I enrolled in the program at a hospital in Tampa, Florida. After two preliminary visits I asked the nurse what possible damage to the bladder or colon could occur from the radiation. The numbers were too high for me, so I quit the program. Now, what to do?
During the following week and a lot of praying for direction, I happened to see the former Chaplin of Pat Roberson's 700 Club give his testimony on his PC. He had chosen the Hallelujah Diet and was doing very well.
Wow...here was the first real break through in my search for alternative prostate cancer treatments. So, I immediately read all I could find on this diet approach and decided this was the answer that I was given. Hallelujah! It worked for me. Later, Barbara and I became health ministers trained by Dr. George Malkmus, the founder of Hallelujah Acres.
Because you must be searching for answers and direction, I am going to suggest that you purchase the book "OUTSMART YOUR CANCER" by Tanya Harter Pierce. This book came about when a relative of Tanya's was diagnosed with cancer. Tanya had retired from her family counseling profession and was starting to write a book of her experiences. She changed direction and started cancer research that led her to write this fabulous book on alternative cancer treatments that have helped in the curing journey of many. Don't delay studying this outstanding book.
Tanya also offers consultation on the various protocols in her book. This is a link to her website.
Here are some of the 21 protocols that Tanya covers:
Another outstanding recovery from PC is the work of the Peter Starr, a documentary film maker and motorcycle enthusiast that was diagnosed with PC in 2004. After rejecting the offers of conventional medicine, he decided to seek alternative prostate cancer treatments and heal in his own way. He traveled 3 continents to interview and learn from 56 health practitioners and researchers that gave him hope and methods to cure his PC.
Click on his photo and you can access a film trailer and a list of practitioners and their contact information.
While reversing his disease he decided to make a documentary film of his healing journey. He is in the process of writing a book that also tells the story. His film, "Surviving Prostate Cancer without Surgery, Drugs or Radiation" is available in a three DVD set that includes a 40 page resource guide. The work that Peter has done should be a lesson learned for not only men with PC but anyone seeking true healing of other maladies that engulf our modern culture. If you are determined enough to make a lifestyle change you can make a difference. This is a good video interview with Dr. Mercola that will give you an understanding of Peter's adventure in healing.
Barbara and I hope you will review the alternative prostate cancer treatments that we have listed. The fear of cancer and the antiquated limited results of the treatments by the medical community is appalling. The real fear should be of their treatment. It takes courage to step outside the norm and chart a new course for your healing. It will not be easy at first. Friends and family will think your are loco. Stay focused with a positive mental picture of your cancer free body. Mind, spirit and a healthy lifestyle can lead you to good health.
