Without saying it directly, your conclusion appears to be that the diet is working to put you in a state of remission by stableizing your PSA at a very low value. I understand that when you alter your diet your PSA increases indicating growing cancer and when you return to the best diet the diet starts killing cancer so that your PSA reduces. Do I understand the situation?
That it appears you can’t get to undetectable and stay there indicates the diet isn’t a cure, but may be a control by holding the cancer in check. So you know the dietary changes that allow the cancer to grow and the ones that control it so far. Then the question is what do you have to do to the diet to actually kill all the cancer and achieve a cure. Or can the diet actually do that?
The diet is not intended to be a cure. I have not yet tested the best diet to
see how low I can take PSA, nor do I intend to. To do so, would risk the
emergence of mutations that could be resistant to the diet. This may not occur
since the diet is broad based, attacking on many fronts, but I see no need to take
Another question comes from the observation of PCa becoming hormone refractory and growing in spite of eliminating testosterone or blocking it by physical or chemical castration. Will the cancer learn, evolve, mutate it’s way around the diet and start growing while on the diet? And become diet refractory? And, if that happens, how will you respond?
I have no dietary response to that situation - - I would have to go to ADT/chemo track
- - which is the reason I don't want to go there. "Indefinite maintenance" vs "cure" is
not as simple as it appears. First, I'm not sure if a cure is actually possible. Second,
from an overall health standpoint, I would better off on my diet. What I'm describing
is called Adaptive Therapy, and I gave two references on page 7 of this thread. Here
