Thought I would share this that perhaps D3 vitamin can be used for alot various things maybe even to help even us PCa patients. You can read about
some of the positive effects, alot of them and even against depression and such. Has alot of good things associated with it, it appears...I don't know enough on it to have a real opinion. Here is my brothers, wife current situation and may show usefulness, that could be awesome for similar patients. My brother says he has heard of PCa patients using this...I have not verified anything on that, yet.(unknown to me)
Little is know about cancer patients with multiple myeloma (which attacks bones and your system). Usually a prognosis of such is without much hope, way worse than PCa, the doctors don't have any set protocols per se, bone marrow transplant is one with risks and some other bizzarre treatments that are not proven. I don't know alot about my in-laws case, my brother went to John Hopkins and some other very good facilities. Her kidneys were in big trouble about 6 months ago or so and it looked like the end (shut down). John Hopkins was advising a kidney transplant even ($400,000) proceedure. Other drugs she had tried earlier one was a pill that costs $200 per day(I believe bro said this one has thalidomide in it-potent stuff that could kill a person in the right doseage..nicely priced too) and another is a shot that is $650 per week. Those items might have helped some, don't know. Looked grim for her as this disease is not usually winable. Her blood counts were so low that she had little or no immunity and had to beware of even a common cold, for quite a while.
Recently since using the D3 in high doseages, might have been at an Rx level, not the 1000 units (that is low low). Her kidneys recently tested, show to be basically normal now and she is doing well...like remission...how long who knows?? My brother will keep me posted. He went to many facilities and some docs would not even talk to them. Went to Freeport, Jamaica found a doc that knew something about this cancer, he mentioned the only article or thing he has seen about a cure was a patient whom used this D3 vitamin otherwise nothing is hardly known about how to treat this dragon. Hey even if this helps for months or years, it is inexpensive and it is all about any possible results...especially in the face of no hope or answers. Thought I would share this and it could be useful in other diseases and maybe have some value in PCa, I don't know. Always looking though.
