Prostate Cancer: one of man's greatest enemies
December 2005, Warren Matthews
Imagine this, you are visiting your doctor for the second time because you have been experiencing some discomfort which prompted you to go and see him a couple of weeks earlier so he could do some tests. He sits you down and with a very serious look he regrets to inform you that you have prostate cancer.
Imagine this, you are visiting your doctor for the second time because you have been experiencing some discomfort which prompted you to go and see him a couple of weeks earlier so he could do some tests.
He sits you down and with a very serious look he regrets to inform you that you have prostate cancer. After you recover from the initial shock you discuss what your options are. None of them look good and with the treatments offered, there is a high probability that you will lose your manhood and virility.
With this shattering news you head home, have a good stiff drink and then after settling down a bit you go to your computer and start researching the subject of prostate cancer.
What you find is really disturbing:
Around a ¼ of all men who are diagnosed each year with cancer have prostate cancer.
You find that prostate cancer is one of the deadliest diseases amongst men, now being the most common non-skin cancer in America. In 2005 to date over 232,000 men have been diagnosed with prostate cancer and over 30,000 deaths are estimated as a result of that figure.
The success rate of conventional medicine cures is estimated at only 20 - 30%, with many negative drug side effects... and these are figures supplied from Glaxo SmithKline a major pharmaceutical company!
Those side effects can include constipation, diarrhea, dizziness, headache, decrease in sexual desire, nausea, trouble in sleeping, bloatedness, indigestion, drowsiness, dryness of mouth, flu-like symptoms.
Surgical and procedural failure rates give no more confidence, with damage to the urethral wall in conventional stricture treatments and thermal tissue damage from laser or electrocautery treatments.
But... what really gets to you, after spending hours and hours researching the subject is that if you had been given the correct knowledge years ago you could have very likely avoided becoming one of these frightening statistics.
You have found that there are many natural substances that claim to be effective in reducing the risk of prostate cancer... for example, Querticin, Grape seed and various other herbal extracts and nutrients.
In addition, you have also found out that years ago when you first started to get up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom that you possibly could have reversed that need by using Beta Sitosterol or Saw Palmetto in conjunction with other nutrients.
OK... this is all very well, but what if you can't turn the clock back, so what can you do? If you are in this unfortunate position and have been diagnosed with prostate cancer, sadly I cannot offer any solutions. It is a very hard disease to reverse once started. However, having said that, I have heard of cases where patients have kept it under control for many years.
My suggestion would be to research and further research the subject. Talk to experts on prostate cancer and don't take everything that your Doctor tells you at face value. Check everything out. If you are not satisfied with the answers and you wish to consider possible natural protocols it may be an idea to contact a doctor with the American College for the Advancement of Medicine. They are in 30 countries. Many of these doctors combine the best of conventional and natural complementary medicine. http://www.acam.org/.
In good health.
