Thanks for all the detailed info! As I said in another post, everyone has a different story and different reasons for how they approach treatment and I'm glad you found what worked for you! There is much in your email that has gone into my similar thinking. In particular your little section on radiation and also surgery as a chance of a cure is kind of where I am at on that. I would rather not do anything but unfortunately have passed that stage and can't wait for the next generation cures so have to work with what is here now. I'm Gleason 7 (3+4), and PSA is 8.7 at the latest. I've only gone up about 1 point in the last year which is good but with the Genomic test added they think I should act. I'm about 2/3 up the scale on that……… I've been taking LOADS OF SUPPLEMENTS for a year, some on advice of a cancer naturopath and some from what I've picked up here and there so that may be a factor in the slow rise. Many have been studied with cancer in mind and some have had research studies done and published. In any event even if they are not stopping the cancer, they are really good for the immune system. Naturopath says ALL MUSHROOMS are good (store or wild) (either eaten for the beta glucan or supplements), Stamets 7 has 7 diff. cancer related mushrooms in 1, also Chaga Tea for drinking or Chaga alcohol extract by dropper, Curcumin/Turmeric, Melatonin, POMI-T supplement. The supplements can also be taken continually after to help slow or mitigate future returning cancer. The Naturopath unfortunately does not have a magic cure but works with health and immune system before and after treatment which he also recommends doing.
