Prostate Cancer and Lifestyle

submitted by: admin on 06/30/2016
  Lifestyle has been shown to be a powerful way to change cancer genes. Dean Ornish did studies that are discussed. Flax seed oil, vitamin D deficiency, and exposure to environmental toxins are also reviewed.                

Is Surgery the Best Treatment for Localized Prostate Cancer?

submitted by: admin on 06/30/2016
  For men with localized prostate cancer, surgery does not save lives and it has a much higher rate of complications such as impotence and incontenance. However, once a man knows he has prostate cancer, he has a powerful drive to get it out even if the data does not support this approach. The word, "cancer" scares us. We need much better...

Vitamin D3 Supplementation Treats Prostate Cancer

submitted by: admin on 06/30/2016
  Patients with low risk prostate cancer under active surveillance may benefit from vitamin D3 supplementation at 4000 IU per day according to an article in the Journal of Endocrinology Metabolism. In patients with Gleason 6 prostate cancers, those treated with 4000 IU of vitamin D3 for one year, 55% had a decrease in Gleason findings or fewer positive...

Prostate Cancer Overview

submitted by: admin on 06/30/2016
  The PSA era is over. Modern research has shown that it leads to overdiagnosis and overtreatment and far too many surgeries, radiation therapy, and hormonal therapy. Prostate cancer is very common, but only about 2% need to be treated. Preventive measures and environmental toxins are reviewed. The relationship of various hormones is discussed.New tools...

Spontaneous Cancer Remission

submitted by: admin on 06/25/2016
Many breast cancers resolve on their own. Autopsy studies show that about 30% of women in their 50s have occult breast cancers that apparently come and go. It makes one wonder if we are massively overdiagnosing cancers and overtreating them as well. The trick is to know which cancers are dangerous and in need of treatment. Studies on mammograms over time have...

Exercise Boosts Immunity Against Cancer

submitted by: admin on 06/25/2016
  Exercising after completing chemotherapy boosts immunity by replacing senescent NK cells with vibrant, healthy NK cells that can fight against the progression of cancer according to an October 2012 article presented at the Integrative Biology of Exercise in October of 2012. This study out of the University of Nebraska studied people who participated...

PSA Screening

submitted by: admin on 06/18/2016
  The inventor of the PSA test as come out and stated that the PSA era is over. We are over-diagnosing too many prostate cancers that don't need treatment with the test. There is no good prostate screening test today. The PSA test is good for following known prostate cancers as they are a good measurement of the extent of growth of the cancer.              

Antioxidents

It seems that nature has provided us with countless opportunities to maximize our health. I have often taught the truth that your ability to heal comes from inside you. This leads me to the conclusion that the only way for you to truly be healthy is to function at 100%. You are not what you eat. You are what you can assimilate from what you eat. This being the...

Prostate Cancer (video miniseries)

submitted by: admin on 04/08/2015
Most men will get prostate cancer during their life time. That's right, if you live to be 90 years old your risk is 90%! If you live to age 50, 50% will have prostate. However, 98% of prostate cancers do not need treatment because we die with them, not from them! The trick is to tell who is in the 2% that will die from it. With new technologies coming into...

Lifestyle Modifies Your DNA

submitted by: admin on 02/19/2015
The field of epigenetics is exploding. We now know that DNA changes in response to environmental exposures and causes major changes in gene expressivity. It is well known that prostate cancer genes (oncogenes) are turned on and off by diet, exercise, relation, sleep, meditation and more. The work of Dean Ornish, MD on prostate cancer proved this. We now have...

HDL Level and Risk of MI Questioned

submitted by: admin on 02/19/2015
  Treatment to increase HDL cholesterol has been viewed as useful, but new data published in the journal Lancet in May of 2012, suggests that there's no value in doing so to prevent heart attacks. It could be that HDL is a marker for increased risk for heart attack, much like the PSA is a marker for prostate cancer. This does not mean that statin...

Brisk Walking Helps Prostate Cancer

submitted by: admin on 02/17/2015
Men with prostate cancer that is localized to the prostate can improve their outcomes if they walk briskly for at least 3 hours a week. This high-intensity exercise delayed and possibly even prevented the progression of their disease as they were found to have a 57% lower rate of progression of disease than men walking at a slower pace. They also found that brisk...

Cancer

submitted by: admin on 02/16/2015
The definition of cancer means that cancer cells don't die as they are programmed, they lack apoptosis. The reasons for this range from genetic defects to overgrowth of chromosomes. Cancer is believed to be caused by genetic and epigenetic factors that include poor lifestyle, radiation exposure, infections, pollution, and more. The spread of cancer is complicated;...

Should Screening Tests for Cancer be Limited in the Elderly?

submitted by: admin on 09/01/2014
A study out of the University of North Carolina Medical Center in August of 2014 studied more than 27,000 patients over the age of 65 and questioned the widsom of doing routine cancer screening tests, especially if they had a limited life expectancy. They looked at screening tests for prostate, breast, colon, and cervix in a study from 2000 through 2010 and compared...

Treating Frailty with Testosterone

submitted by: admin on 10/17/2013
  As we get older, especially men who are frail, testosterone replacement is a consideration to improve muscle strength and balance. Exercise, of course, is the best way to increase muscle strength and balance because it naturally increases growth hormone and testosterone levels. Overdoing testosterone levels can be a problem with aggressive behavior...

Sun, Vitamin D, and Cancer

submitted by: admin on 10/16/2013
  We need sunlight to make vitamin D. The types, sources of vitamin D, and physiology of vitamin D are reviewed. The relationship between vitamin D levels and cancer are reviewed.        

Screening Does Not Reduce Prostate Cancer Deaths

submitted by: admin on 10/14/2013
  Screening does not significantly reduce prostate cancer deaths but it does lead to overdetection and overtreatment. The cancer detection rate is 40% higher with testing, but to prevent one death from prostate cancer more than 1400 men would need screening and 48 would be unnecessarily treated. The era of the PSA is over.
