I have read some article to that effect as well , never tried it before my
open RR, i also heard or actually read of someone that took a hot pepper supplements and claims his cancer was not detectable any longer after 6 weeks!!!
A friend of mine have tried to convince me to try that HEALTHY DIET method before letting a surgeon into my body, i just did not feel completely convinced about
the results, however i am sure there is some direct correlation between the 2... i elected to get mine out , BUT i do believe that my PSA that was .1 6 months post op is now at 0.0 at a year post op and i must relate it to my change of life style (eating healthier , exercise more , etc) as well as my ED progress ....there is no doubt that our body is like an engine , an if we put bad fuel in it , then it would not run smoothly, and vice versa, the only question left is to what extend it can change what is already in our body ? and ca it reverse it completely ?
Good Luck to all
