Well I'm new here, being recently (Dec 12) diagnosed with a low level prostate cancer. My stats are as follows:
Gleason Score of 6
I immediately started an agressive dose of Essiac Tea, cuz I figured a long time ago that I would take that course if the situation ever came up. I am also drinking green tea and pomegranate juice, dropping sugars and enriched white flours, and indulging in part of the Budwig Protocol...flaxseed oil and cottage cheese (cut with blueberries and Stevia so it doesn't taste foul). Generally beefing up my diet by cutting beef...eating my greens...bolting the barn door after the horse escaped as it were.
Oh...all that and brachytherapy.
Now, my question is, is anyone doing complementary therapies alongside the standard cut/burn/poison? I mean I'm grateful that I'm a candidate for seed implants, but I'd really like to ameliorate some of the effects of the radiation...minimalise the potential for incontinence, impotence and other minor irritants if at all possible. I'm looking at drinking Aloe juice and adding echinacea to the mix as anti-inflammatories.
My doctors say "Sure...anything that makes you healthier is just great", but I know they're being patronizing. That's ok...but what I need to know is if there are any contra-indications amidst the stuff I'm looking at. And no...I'm not buying a Rife machine.
