How I Reduced My PSA Level by over 50% without Prescription Drugs: From November 1998 to early November 1999, my PSA level climbed from 1.7 to 5.1, and a month later jumped to 6.15. My doctor made an appointment with a urologist, who said that my prostate was slightly enlarged and scheduled me for a biopsy to test for prostate cancer in early December 1999. During my discussion with the urologist, he indicated that there was considerable research that showed a high correlation between consumption of red meat and that of cancer, in general, including prostate cancer.
In the meantime, I became aware of the work of Dr. Johanna Budwig, a German biochemist and Nobel prize nominee, who did extensive research in the benefits of flaxseed oil combined with sulphurated protein in the diet. She helped many seriously ill individuals, who had been given up as terminal, to regain their health. The program that she used was flaxseed oil blended with quark, the German form of cottage cheese.
In early December 1999, I began a program of flaxseed oil and low fat cottage cheese. Specifically, in the morning, I took five doses, each consisting of two 1,000 mg softgels of flaxseed oil with one teaspoon of low fat cottage cheese. I repeated this in the evening, so that my total daily dosage was twenty softgels of flaxseed oil and ten teaspoons of low fat cottage cheese. In the one year since I began this program, my PSA level has dropped from 6.15 to 2.4. I have now reduced my total daily dosage to two softgels of flaxseed oil and one teaspoon of low fat cottage cheese.
The source for the flaxseed oil that I used is Nature's Distributors, Inc., phone number 1-800-624-7114, or on the internet at www.naturesdistributors.com. This company often sells many of their products at a 2 for 1 price. If you call them, ask about their new Vita-Flax product, which is available in 1 lb. containers. This product is not only more economical, but it also replaces both the flaxseed oil AND the cottage cheese. It is also claimed to be superior in many ways to the flaxseed oil, since it is lower in fat and is rich in soluble fiber and also contains lignans, which reportedly have significant anti-cancer properties.
CONCLUSION: In my case, I was able to reduce my PSA level by over 50% without surgery or prescription drugs. The only change that I made besides the program described above is that I reduced my intake of red meat in favor of fish and poultry.
After reading some of the comments regarding cayenne pepper use for prostate cancer, I found this site that appears to have credible information about the use of cayenne pepper. Very Convincing. I currently have prostititis and do not want to take antibiotics again (! ) as recommended by my urologist. I'm on the hunt for more holistic approaches.
Here's the link:
I have slow growing cancer and will go to great lengths to avoid unnecessary treatment. I've discovered my medical system will give me all the tests/procedures I consent to. This surrender is over.
Good luck to all. Keep up the fight.
The guy that posted the cure took 6x600mg tablets of cayenne daily that were rated at 10000 scofeild units.. For a couple of weeks then dropped the dose by half. If you google cayenne and prostate cancer his blog comes up. There's other information which seems to suggest it attacks other cancers besides prostate, by causing the cells to go into suicide mode.
I would get some cayenne capsules and take 500mg of the hottest variety you can get hold of. The reason being that it sends prostate cancer cells into suicide mode and its starting to look like it does it to other types as well.

How long did the cayenne user take his doses before his prostate numbers were down? I am currently a prostate cancer sufferer, and I have been using essiac tea along with baking soda/maple syrup with what appears to be some results (a 2 point drop in my psa over a six month period). Also just started with h2o2 inhaler.

I have been reading your readers' emails and I wanted to make some comments about Cayenne Pepper. Cayenne is one of my favorate herbs for myself and my clients. I had prostate cancer 18 years ago and I cured it naturally using herbs, cleansing and diet only. For the cancer I used the John Ray Christopher method of cayenne tea with a teaspoon of cayenne pepper in warm water 3 times daily. Today I still use one or more teaspoons daily in my food at every meal. Just recently I received a call from a Doctor of Chinese medicine who was throwing up blood from ulcers. As I alway do I suggested cayenne capsuls using 100,000 heat units plus. He could not believe that this would work but he took my advice and within a few days his problem was over. Of course I also gave him some advice on changing diet and lifestyle. In my 18 years as a naturopahtic healer I have used cayenne many times for bleeding ulcers. Cayenne also works great for emphysema sufferors, I have seen patients get off oxygen bottles and out of wheelchairs. But the person with the disease must go beyond the herb for the disease and look at the way they eat and their lifestyle. If they do not change their life the disease will appear somewhere else in another form.

I've hung off posting until I had heard some feedback. Within weeks of each other I heard that two of my in laws had developed prostate Cancer. One had a T.U.R.P. and when it was analysed they found 25% Cancer. He was a very worried guy as he had problems peeing. I told him that since my problem I had been using Cayenne, on a daily basis and had no problems in the 12 years since I had the same operation. So I suggested he Take Cayenne and a 50/50 juice of apple and Red Beet. Six weeks later he went for a biopsy, the Doc took thirteen biopsies in various places within the prostate. they all came back negative and clear with a Previous Psa test of 0.1.
I gave the same advice to the other in law, Apparently the cancer had got outside the Prostate, I've just heard back on him, and he is now clear as well. According to the Science the Cayenne strips the cancer cells wall, and the apple and beet seem to do the rest. If the urine turns red its a good indication that the juice is getting everywhere, this is a good indicator and is harmless. So the message is drink enough till the urine shows red.
This is anecdotal but it seems the Cayenne, works on other Cancer cells as well. It would be good to get some more feedback on this, as it seems that there is something cheap that actually might work.

Hello, I have heard that some 2004 study concluded that Chia seed puts males at a higher risk of prostate cancer if consumed on a regular basis. I also have heard that Chia seed is a "superfood" that has a ton of vitamins/minerals and is wonderful for our health.
Is Chia seed good or bad for prostate health? And also general health too? I have taken it and it has worked wonders for my mood and energy.
After reading your post it reminded me of my step-dad, Walt, who passed away in 03 of brain cancer. Originally it started as prostate ('98) and then progressed to bone and then to brain. He had the prostate cancer for many years and managed to keep it under control via many different methods like... doctor recommendatations such as radiation implants, stricter diet protocals, those big ole crazy mushrooms that you grow and then drink in a tea - Gombocha.. I think.
In the beginning of '02 he was diagnosed as having bone cancer, so the cancer had progressed significantly. He was given a year to live. At that point, or somewhat thereafter, he began the Essiac Tea. Throughout that year he had very little pain. We were all so thankful and amazed that his pain levels were so manageable, as bone cancer is supposed to be awfully pain-filled - according to his doctors.
Sadly in the middle of that year he left off making and drinking the tea due to his father coming down sick and needing a caretaker. Within 4 months he was diagnosed with brain cancer. (I had never heard that if you leave off taking the Essiac your cancer will progress with a vengence, but that seems to be the case with my Dad too!) He passed in January of '03.
I must say that I believe in the power of Essiac tea. I think it caused my Dad to have a much more pain free and liveable life during his last year. I mean he was super active until about 2 months before the end.
Please read "Calling of an Angel" by Gary Glum. It's an interesting book that describes the origin of Essiac tea. There are lots of people out there who want to capitalize on Essiac, but they are not doing/selling it the way Rene (the discoverer) would have done it. Never use a tincture. You must use the dried herbs and follow Rene's recipe! Also I believe that this website - http://www.larrywinfield.com/recipe1.htm - is quite informative regarding the actual original prescribed doseage.
May God bless you in your search for healing!
Flax seed use with Prostate Cancer:
This question is for Ted-
My father has prostate cancer, he had the HIFU treatment last year. His PSA was just done and has jumped from 1.4 to 10.7 in just 3 months. In November 2008, I encouraged him to start taking ground flax seed meal daily. I have recently read conflicting articles on the use of flax seed meal with prostate problems (estrogen). I'm thinking maybe the flax seed is responsible for the recent elevated PSA? I'm hoping you could shed some light on that. He also currently takes Vit C, D3, E, fish oil, selenium. He is drinking ACV and alkaline water (bought an alkalizer). I need to harp on him for his sweet tooth, so I'm sure there is a candida issue.

I sent earthclinic a story about how garlic ridded me of cancer, this is under the heading Garlic Bulbs. 3/02/2007 under holistic cures for cancer.
Thank goodness for earthclinic!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Now I would like to add a blog I just installed on Yahoo 360 on how others are finding garlic very helpful in staving off death by cancer by using garlic against it.
Entry for April 11, 2007: 14 years ago I had a serious bought with cancer, It was then I made the mistake that killed my cancer and saved my life. I have been trying to relay this information to you all since that time.
It is obvious to me that some people don't want to know anything different when what is told to them, they are having to much fun with this. And many are getting very rich!
I have some news about the ones who have found out about Garlic. Myself, I am sure I would not have made it, except for the garlic, and now several others have used garlic against cancer and are OK. I have an email to share from one person who expected to die from prostate cancer, His wife had already been killed by cancer, I want to share my latest email from him.
Then again, a lady friend of mine, K, is what I am going to call her, Another friend of hers whispered to me, K has been diagnosed with brain cancer, She only has 6 months to live. The first thing I did was get her phone no. and call to tell her about garlic. The results are, she started by eating a bulb of garlic a day, Then tapering off to a clove a day. Her cancer symptoms are gone, her pain is gone, and she has gone back to work, in a cancer killed state. this is a 2007 story, This whole episode started 6 weeks ago, a woman who was given 6 months to live has been given many more yrs to live because she used garlic to cure herself of brain cancer. I first heard of her cancer trouble in early 2007 it is now April 11,2007, now and she (K) is no longer worried about death from brain cancer.
The other story I have to share with you today has taken a little longer. But instead of trying to tell the story myself, I will cut and paste his latest email to me
This is S's latest email, he is from the UK,
"Hi Barry,wanted to up-date you after the latest hospital visit. Well great news to tell. In sept 06 when the trouble started my PSA count was 13.9 . Couldn't pass water & awful pain in the lower region. Found you & also started garlic.Took a Whole bulb on 2 separate days. Next reading in Jan 07 was 4.2 alarm bells ringing as still well above the acceptable 0--3 The next step was to have a biopsy to test for cancer cells, massively invasive & huge side effects. So we agreed to wait a while & have another test first. I did as you said & organised change in my life. Looked for calm in my mind. At this time i was on a drug to relax my muscles in that area to assist in passing water. Stopped the pills at the end of Jan 07 as hate pills. Started taking 1 garlic piece 3 times a week. You said increase it a little so i slowly built up to 3 pieces each day every day by end of March.Find it hard to swallow but try to imagine the good it is doing me. Next check was Feb 07 & was 3.9 still high but heading in the right direction.I still had an ache in the same place. Barry the inspiration i got from you & watching the numbers fall helped me so much. The latest check last week was 3.2 must get into the 0---3 group so still lots of work to do. Still have an ache which needs investigating, otherwise feel so much better. Will up-date you next check, positive thinking & all that so God willing it will be in the 0----3 Bless you my friend, S"
after using garlic to rid himself of prostate cancer.
This is good as I can do, If you can't believe, that garlic gets rid of cancer, then what can I say, I am only here to help because of what garlic did for me, You could at least try some garlic for a few days if you find you have contracted a cancer, I'll gurantee you may be rid of the cancer before you make for your doctors appointment.
Later Your Friend Boone Doggie sometimes called by my real name Barry.
This is my story and I'm sticking to it.
I have been on HBP medicine for years and I was diagnosed with what the Drs. said was prostate cancer. I of course did lots of research and came up with a, what I call, my everything formula. I make my own cayenne tincture and a kind of garlic tincture. I use habenero peppers as they are the hottest I can find here in Mexico, if I could find hotter I would use them. Anyhow I take 5ml of the tincture, a tablespoon of the garlic, which is kinda like a tincture and is made the same way a tincture is made, two tablespoons of ACV, four drops of Lugol's Iodine, 8 ounces of tomato juice and 8 ounces of purified water, also a 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda. Mix it all until the foaming stops, drink it down. I find it tastes nice, hot, but nice. Of course I didn't start out with 5mls of tincture, I started with 2 and worked my way up. I had a cat scan and a bone scan last month, both came out clear with no indication of disease and the blood pressure is now normal. Bet you can guess what the Drs. wanted to do- right, put me on chemo and radiation. When I asked why they had no explanation, guess it is because of the ungodly amount of money they make with these procedures. Try it you will get used to the taste and will look forward to you daily Whamo!
Hi. My husband has been treating prostate cancer for 12 years. natural remedies need time to work. We started with amazon tonic which reduces inflammation. It was good and we still use it. However, we decided to go to the root cause of what was causing the inflammation and why we couldn't stop it.
Research brought us to naglease which kicks in when cancer is in the body. Naglease prevents the macrophage from working. Macrophage eats inflammation.
We decided to buy GCMAF which attacks the naglease. GCMAF is basically made with dairy and expensive to produce. We then researched unpasteurised milk, fermented milk and probiotics as we realised we could make it ourselves. Unpasteurised Fermented milk is whey and has all the protein and every amino acid your body needs which supports the immune system. before pasteurisation milk was always the go to for natural cures.
My husband has stage 4 prostate cancer.
Does anyone have any information with regard there being any connection between vasectomy and prostate cancer later down the line. I found a reference to this in a book called. What the doctors don't tell you. By Lynne Mctaggart. Any ideas? Best wishes to all, Christine.
Can you advice and help. I am male in UK 62 yrs old quite active but had prostrate cancer and Radio therapy 6 yrs ago. I have recovered successfully, but am unable to produce semen and my bowels are a bit loose and urine flow is erratic and have to get up a couple of times, But the first problem is my concern. I have to reproduce semen and cannot accept western diagnosis. I feel when I do have an erection like there is a blockage due to tissue damage. I have seen your web site and been impressed and feel your advice will be sensible and your sugggestions rational. So please please help and advice.
