Hearing the "C" word from your doctor is never good news. Even the thought of getting cancer frightens most people. Some cancers are more survivable, and prostate cancer is one of them. It is the most common type of cancer among men in the U.S., affecting 221,800 men annually. Among the 221,800 diagnosed, about 27,500 die from it. Common treatments include surgery, drugs, chemo and radiation, but do men diagnosed with prostate cancer have to accept these treatments in order to survive?
Some alternatives to prostate cancer treatment
One man's personal journey into prostate cancer treatment resulted many years later in a documentary called Surviving Prostate Cancer Without Surgery, Drugs, or Radiation, which will also be made into a book. The author, Peter Starr, was recently interviewed by Dr. Mercola, author of health advice published on websites, newspapers, magazines, and other publications. When Peter was diagnosed with prostate cancer, he did extensive research and discovered that men can die from the treatments as well as from the cancer. So, instead of surgery and chemo, he designed his own program; three years later he was cancer free.
The four steps Peter followed in his own treatment included:
- Correct any nutritional deficiencies - a 62 blood analysis will reveal deficiencies. A vitamin D deficiency is common with prostate cancer. Also avoid all processed food and meat from animals that are fed hormones and antibiotics.
- Look for toxins - a urine and fecal analysis will identify toxins, including calcium in the prostate which can be eliminated with vitamin K2.
- Check hormone levels - imbalances should be corrected by adding or eliminating testosterone or estrogen.
- Emotional health - emotional health can affect physical health and healing, so it is part of Peter's 4-step program for men to talk about whatever trauma they are experiencing.
