I said in the previous post that we had him purposely tell the 2nd doctor that he hadn't been diagnosed with cancer so that there was no bias. He
wanted an honest opinion from the 2nd doctor, because, as we suspected, the original doctor was a real jerk when G went back to him on the 21st. He
didn't even say congrats or ask what he had done to turn things around. Even after telling him, "Yeah, you're much softer" he then proceeded to
recommend another treatment. Only after G told him it was out of the question that the original doctor told him, "okay, well whatever you're doing it
seems to be working, so just keep that up then." The doc then told him that he was now at least another 8 years to his life.
He did have a previous test and biopsy. He was diagnosed with cancer, but he didn't want the 2nd doctor to know that. As I did mention though, his PSA
didn't change between the two tests. It was the only thing that didn't change while everything else improved drastically. But, from what I understand
a high PSA can mean a number of things and not necessarily cancer.
Yet we do not have the other documentation do we?
In addition, if his PSA was not changed, then he wasn't cured. You would have to provide before and after testing to prove he was cured, not a paper
that says he was feeling better after he de-toxified his body..
At best, you have demonstrated that good nutrition and supplementation made him feel better and alleviated some of his symptoms...which is a good
thing. I wish every patient did that...however that is still not evidence of a cure.
Prostate cancer is a hormonally active cancer (IE it responds to hormone levels) and the forfront of prostate cancer research are methods to reduce
hormonal signals tothe prostate. Many natural products, such as yam extracts, can reduce/countract testosterone levels. It is possible, IMHO, to
ameliorate the disease with natural products, but one must doubt an immediate "cure" in solid tumors because they take time to grow and thus they take
time to shrink.
Since non-metastatic tumors do not cause systemic effects, the most likely cause of him feeling better immediately is his generalized detoxification
and better nutrition.
If he used hormonally active foods (as discussed above) I do not discount the possability that the tumor may haf shrunk slightly and gave him better
flow, although, given the rapidity of the symptom change more likely that you gave him nutrition containing strong anti-oxidants that reduced urethral
and prostate inflammation, reduced localized swelling around the tumor, and released some of the constriction.
All of this is good, but not a cure. In order for nutritional and alternative medical methods to advance, we need to apply the same strict scrutiny
and scientific method we do to every other medical advance. Right now, we don't even have evidence that he had tumor regression much less a cure. If
he had regression, we do not know what subtance or combination of substances caused it. All we have is a gentleman who feels better, and that is a
fabulous thing, but we really have zip in the realm of evidence.
