I have had several appointments with Aaron Katz, Head of Holistic Urology at Columbia Presbyterian in NYC. He is the author of "Dr. katz's Guide to prostate Health." I would certainly recommend it. He put me on a diet and supplements when I was first diagnosed. I figured I would give it a try. I was amazed at how much better I felt and the really amazing thing for me, is that I have not been sick a day since I started his regime. I live with 325 teenage boys and you can imagine how many germs come my way in a year. I usually was getting some virus now and then. I just had a prostatectomy but you can be sure I am sticking to the basics of this regime. If cancer found a welcoming home in my once, I'm going to do my best to make sure it does not find a second welcome.
My whole life I should have limited fat and processed foods. I should always eat lots of vegetables and whole grains and low fat protein...but that darn junk food is so good...and there is nothing better than a steak on the grill, so all things in moderation.
So, while I am an advocate of holistic and alternative meds, I would strongly urge you to investigate the Budwig Protocol further. There is a lot of research that goes so far as to state that the flaxseed oil is harmful and promotes cancer growth. Everyone agrees that cold milled whole flax seed is very beneficial because of the lignans. One of the red flags that I notice is when proponents advocate a conspiracy theory as to why a certain treatment is met with resistance. In this case, Budwig materials claim that since the medical community will make no profit off Flaxseed oil, they do not tell their patients about
it. Let me assure you, if something cured cancer, my doctor would tell the world even if he did not make a penny. So, I would exercise real caution with some of these regimes that claim cures. Otherwise, healthy eating and supplements are only going to make your whole body a healthier place and I'm with you there 100%.
