[YEA] "Recipe: Take common green cabbage, put in boiling water, boil briefly until half cooked. Pour out half the water, add plenty 2 tablespoons of olive oil, salt and a little cumin. Bring to another boil for about 3 minutes. Eat the cabbage and drink the juice from this recipe immediately. Once a day is best."
[YEA] 02/22/2014: Lizzie from London: "First off, thank you to earth clinic and all the people that post on here. It is such a great site.
My partner was suffering from enlarged prostate. He was suffering quite a bit, hard to pee and frequently wanting to pee. He was put on a 3 month waiting list to have an operation. He was not sure he could last that long because of the pain of it.
He started taking 10.000 Hu cayenne tablets. Think he took about 6 a day. Within about two days the pain had eased off and he was able to pee properly again. He was amazed and so was I. He cancelled the appointment to be operated on and is now completely fine."
11/04/2012: Bill In Thailand from Chiang Mai, Thailand: "Could someone let us know.... A daily dosage of 600-mg of cayenne peper would equate to how many teaspoons?
I began taking it today in hopes of easing my BHP symptoms... Started very cautiously with three x 1/8 teaspoon servings in 3-oz V-8 juice diluted with 3-oz of warm water... Taken after meals. I have a small hiatal hernia and battle GERD as a result. So need to be wary when ingesting pepper. But I seem to have tolerated this small dosage rate quite well. Now, I am wondering what it takes to ingest a total of 600-mg. Taken in three servings (200-mg each).
Thanks to all posters for the very interesting information."
[YEA] 01/29/2012: Len from Toronto, Ontario Canada: "I had been using saw palmetto for the last 7 months. Urine flow was half of what it used to be (less in the morning but "improved" to about 1/2 of what it was when I was younger (now 59).
It seemed to be helping but I wasn't totally satisfied and started looking elsewhere. I found references to cayenne pepper. I read more about supposed "cancer" fighting properties. I'm getting more into "natural" methods and away from pharmaceuticals and thought I would give it a try.
I had my first taste this morning after breakfast: I used 1/2 tsp in half cup of warm water. Chugged it and oooh boy, it was hot. Not burningly so but enough. Without word of a lie, when I peed about 1. 30pm, flow was twice what it usually is. Four hours? Sounds dubious but it's true. All I know is I'm a believer (at this point) and am going to continue this level of cayenne (1/2 tsp in half cup of warm water 3x/day (after each meal).
Take this for what it's worth. Good luck to you :)"Replies
02/02/2012: Len from Toronto, Ontario Canada replies: "No specific quantities as there are no claims that it kills cancer cells. Just some studies suggest it does in mice. It has not been tested on people.
Powdered quantities suggested range from 1/4tsp to 1 tablespoon in 1 cup of water 3x a day (preferably after meals as the food has a "gentling" effect). A lot depends on how much you can tolerate. Upset stomach is a common first reaction.
I started with (and am still using) 1/2 tsp in 1/2 cup of warm water. I had a little bit of "turmoil" (still do--it's not a "leisure" beverage to sit down with and enjoy) but it settled down quickly.
Everything I've read says powdered in very warm water (I'm using 1/2tsp of Bulk Food Store cayenne powder--25 to 35 thousand SHU--in 1/2 cup very warm water) is best. It's benefits hit you immediately whereas the capsule has to dissolve.
Capsules work too but are slower.
As a side benefit to the prostate issue, it is clearing up my sinus and coughing/congestion issues related to the bronchitis I'm currently "enjoying".
It's a wonder pepper. I do believe in it at this point."
[YEA] 04/01/2012: Doug from Phoenix, Az. replies: "Cayenne does so many wonderful things. There are so many testimonials it will make your head spin, just like ACV. Buy your cayenne in powder or liquid form. Forget about the capsules; when your mouth senses the heat, your stomach will immediately release juices to protect itself, something the capsules don't do. Also, the more heat units, the better. I am taking 160,000 heat unit cayenne pepper that I buy on-line. Research Dr richard Schultz and Dr. Christopher (can't remember his first name) on the internet. Good luck everyone.
08/26/2012: John from Johannesburg, Gauteng replies: "Dr Mathias Rath, a great in the science of natural health and antedotes, explains that of of all the earths mammals, the human is the only species that does not produce its own requirement of Vit C. We pay the price, unless one ingests vit C on a regular basis. Cayenne, ginger, are loaded with Vit C.
British Medicine discovered the C discrepancy after 150 years, heart attack was then known as Scurvy!
To this day, the Nation Health Services of the UK or anywhere else will not reduce the Hospital bed occupancy by making this simple truth known to every school child and expectant mother. One day the medics will be looked at as we now view the infamous, demonic inquisitors. It is after all, thier own fault, they refuse to see TRUTH and continue to support the purveyers of slow profit making death, instead of using thier existing medical platform to improve themselves in order to improve the health of thier fellow travellers."
12/23/2011: Dorli from Kent, Ct: "How much cayenne is necessary to reduce the size of the prostate or to kill cancer cells in the prostate? I bought capsules containing 600 mg."Replies
01/15/2012: Teresa Morgan from Port Hadlock, Washington replies: "as much FRESH cayanne as you can handle, as often as you can, it should be fresh, and in the mouth. Bypassing the tastebuds reduces effectivness greatly. Drying hurts its effectivness, but not as much as other processing. As long as it is dried naturally, and organic. My husband simply puts it on his food like regular pepper, every day. Or eats a fresh pepper every day."
[YEA] 02/19/2009: Nick from Johannesburg, South Africa, Gauteng South Africa: "One week before I turned 40 I became very ill- flue like symptoms. Docter told me I had prostrate problems. Since then, urinating wasn't what it use to be! 2 years ago I met this friend who only took natural medicines, and she recommended Cayenne Pepper. I've been taking it in powder form -3x per day with luke warm water- and I can honestly say i pee like a 30 year old!"Replies

05/03/2011: Gavin from Manganui, Northland, New Zealand replies: "I've just finished reading a report from "pepperlover" in topix forum.. who was diagnosed with prostate cancer, he didnt want it removed and started taking 600mg of cayenne over a day.. In a few days he was able to urinate freely again and.. within two weeks he could orgasm again.. When he went to the doctor for a check up a month or two later.. the test showed no signs of cancer the doctor couldnt believe it.... He got the idea from a trail on rats who were given the human prostate cancer cell... The good news seems to be that cayenne seems to be working on other types of cancer cells."

I think 1 T. Blackstrap Molasses twice a day sounds like a very safe and inexpensive cure. Also, the cayenne pepper - 1/4 t to 1/2 t. In water or juice twice a day. (This is spicy! I like it in Grape Juice. ) Let us know how it is working for you! ~Mama to Many~"
01/03/2014: Thehandyman1947 from Ohio replies: "Try D M S O with lugol's solution, you should have your thyroid monitored when doing iodine. Also cranberry is very good for urinary track, get a lab test to know exactly what your dealing with. Hope this helps."
01/03/2014: Wayne from Indiana replies: "I have a self diagnosed prostatitis problem. I decided to try applying lugol's iodine topically to the general area around the prostate. I determined this was a good way to try and kill the unwanted bacteria. I have been doing this for about a month I think. It seems to have given me some relief. I apply it in the morning and at night. It can dry out the skin and burn some. But its good effects out weigh the bad in my opinion.
Doctor David Brownstein has written several books concerning the thyroid and iodine you might research iodine to see what you are getting into. Because if your thyroid is not healthy or have hashimottos disease it could affect you. The iodine can irritate the thyroid if you have hashimottos disease. I believe a lot of people have a iodine deficiency but it can be tricky to try and use iodine.
Look up Lugols iodine on amazon and read the reviews some are pretty remarkable. Swansons website sells it along with amazon."
01/04/2014: Tony from Tn, Usa replies: "I just want to add my 2 cents here. I've suffered from chronic prostatitis for over 5 years myself. Been through all sorts of treatment options. The doctors always want to throw antibiotics in me. I've also tried numerous supplements & other natural remedies. They just don't work! Let me tell you why.
It's most likely not a problem with bacteria or viruses. It's more than likely due to CANDIDA. I've learned a ton of things from Bill here at EC. Prostate problems can be a problem with candida and also actually directly related to the thyroid as well. How many of you know that thyroid problems can also lead to prostate issues?
I would suggest to look at the Candida page here at EC for more help. I'm currently under the anti-candida protocol provided by Bill myself. You have to remain disciplined on the protocol & keep a positive attitude. It's not going to be an overnight cure.
Candida takes years to build up in the body but you won't see very many traditional medicine doctors acknowledge that if there life was on the line. Candida untreated can certainly lead to a number of debilitating diseases such as cancer. I really think the poster needs to consider candida as a probably cause. Thanks & God Bless!"
[YEA] 02/10/2008: Olivia from Brooklyn, New York: "Coconut oil reduced my husband's swollen left testicle about 85 percent in one week of light massage. My husband is terrified of seeing a doctor. There is no negotiating with him. The answer is a resounding no. For the past two months I have been giving him a combination of saw palmetto and pygeum tablets for prostate problems. He had terrible dribbling of urine and waking up many times per night. I gave him two of each tablet twice per day and within three days his bathroom runs were reduced to twice per night from four or five times. After about six weeks was reduced to once per night. I was therefore in shock when one week ago I noticed one testicle was three times its size and hard. He had been hiding it because he was afraid I'd insist on him going to the doctor. He said there was no pain. I was terrified of the thought of testicular cancer but he said he did not care he was not going to the doctor. He is 63 and cannot remember the last time he saw a doctor. Well I prayed and the thought of massaging it with coconut oil came to me. It has been one week since I'd take some oil in my hand and massage lightly from groin to under and around both testicle area. I'd then take another generous helping of oil and cup the swollen testicle in it while praying. The swelling has gone down about 85 percent in one week. I will continue doing so even after all the swelling leaves because I am hoping for a complete cure of the dribbling, which is also much better. I forgot to mention that I also started giving him two ounces of noni juice and two ounces of goji juice per day. I was so scared that I tried everything. I think the coconut oil is key though. I give one juice in the morning and the other at night."

[YEA] 02/10/2007: Mir Ar from Montréal, Canada: "re: How my 'hated' remedy freed me from the prostate discomfort. Hi, For the last 2 months I have been suffering from sleeplessness caused by my prostate disorder. I started reducing consumption of liquids closer to evenings; thinking I would not be going to the toilet 3 or 4 times during the night. It did not help. Recently, for 2 consecutive nights I was forced to go to the toilet 5 and 6 times. My sister reminded me of a grain used in the Afghan cuisine and as well for kidney problems. It is known in Farsi as 'Shanbalila' in Arabic al-holba'. This grain's name in English is Fenugreek (Trigonella foenum-graecum). I bought a small package of 200g. (Imported from India) in an Afghan variety store in Montreal for 2 dollars. Since my childhood' I did not like the smell of the thing and the day my mother put some of it into a sweet rice dish I refused to eat it at all and invited myself to my aunt's place to avoid being forced to eat. After my 2 troubled nights, I looked into a book of remedies published in Iran in Persian language. I found this Fenugreek recommended for my kind of problem. According to the simple instruction, I put approximately 2 teaspoons of the grain in a pot of boiling water and turned the heat off shortly and left the infusion for the evening. Before going to bed I drank a cup of the liquid and started wondering what kind of a 3rd night will I be going through. At the early hours of that night, I woke up twice for the toilet, each time after an hour of shallow sleep. Afterward I woke up around 7 in the morning without any pressing need to the toilet. Apparently the infusion took a few hours to start working. I used this remedy for 3 more days and with 2 -3 cups per day. Now, I wake up only twice in the night, if I don't drink a lot of liquids in the afternoon. Whether it cured an infection somewhere in my body or else, it did something good to me and I sleep well enough at nights now. The only aftermath of the fenugreek is an unpleasant odder (for me) in the armpits that does not go away after 2-3 showers. One has to use a strong deodorant for a few days even after the treatment. Good luck!"
[YEA] 01/08/2009: Donna from Aspen, CO: "Just 3 weeks ago my husband had HIFU (high intensity focused ultrasound) for prostate cancer. He is completely back to his old self, and never felt any pain or discomfort, never had the threat of maybe he would be incontinent or impotent. It was so easy!
HIFU, as it is called, is in clinical trials in the USA, but your urologist won't tell you about it, ours tried to discourage us, by telling us it wasn't approved by the FDA, but after much searching and studing--we knew it was the right decision! No cutting!
HIFU has been used in Europe for 16 years with a 94% cure rate. It would be 100% except if the cancer has spread outside the gland too far, then it cannot get it all, neither can surgery though, chemo is the choice then, but HIFU can be done first.
There are two HIFU machines, the Albatherm only has one size setting, so if your gland is larger than the setting it also may not get all the cancer. But the Sonablade500 can be adjusted to accomodate all sizes and if the gland moves during the procedure then so can the ultrasound beams. The Sonablade500 is made in the USA, while the Albatherm is made in Europe.
Because HIFU hasn't finished clinical trials in the USA it isn't FDA approved, so you must go outside the US to have it done. We went to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. We met Dr. S. Scionti ( www.internationalhifu.com ) and his team of nurses, anathiesologist and mechanics for the machine the night prior to the treatment at Xavier Hospital, which was spotlessly clean. The treatment took 2 hours, then we waited for husband to come out of his sleep, and we went back to the hotel, we had dinner out, and life was good! A supra-pubic catheter is installed, it is needed as the doctor uses it to clean him out prior to treatment, then there are tiny particles of prostate that must leave the body and the catheter makes this easier, or they could clog up the urethra. The catheter was a bummer, stayed in 12 days, but I understand you get the catheter with surgery too. Radiation causes other cancers, like bladder and renal.
HIFU is the answer! For complete info here is a website from the Prostate Cancer Research Institute, an independent research charity which explains it: http://www.prostate-cancer.org/education/novelthr/Chinn_TransrectalHIFU.html
Dr. S. Scionti is the most experienced in HIFU outside Europe, over 400 treatments. He lives in Hilton Head, South Carolina. 888-874-4384
It just makes me sick that the rest of the world has this easy treatment and we've never heard of it!
The Japanese use HIFU for bone, liver, kidney, pancreatic, prostate and breast cancer."

It would be 100% except if the cancer has spread outside the gland too far, then it cannot get it all, neither can surgery though, chemo is the choice then, but HIFU can be done first, " reminded me of tomography (search online). A friend said that in one visit tomography cured the tiny seed tumors that arose throughout his step-father's body some time after surgery."
