Here is the post from Gunner that Bill referred to. He had a very serious and discouraging prognosis years ago and has found ways to improve his health. Hope this is helpful.
I am a P/C survivor, so far. PSA of 250 in 1989; diagnosis was "terminal and untreatable" with multiple bone mets. Prognosis death in 6 months. Since there was nothing here permitted by the FDA and my father had died of P/C after relying on Mexican remedies, I went to Europe. It's a long story but to cut to the chase there is a lot of information and cutting edge therapies available today in the USA but not all of it available through conventional MDs who are stuck on "cut, burn and poison" (surgery, radiation and chemo) and some only through being a guinea pig in a Trial. I have survived 5 trials, two in Germany and three in the U.S. Hear this: ALL cancer victims are seriously D deficient. It is called vitamin D but in reality it is a hormone with many applications in your body. It comes to you naturally, from sunlight (UV)on your exposed skin. This is why there is much more P/C in northern hemisphere countries and among our black brothers; not enough sun exposure. I currently take (by prescription) 50,000 international units of "vitamin" D3 every morning. That's right, fifty thousand. It fits in one small, white capsule. Also, I take 15 grams per day of vitamin C, orally, and once a week a bolus of vitamin C intravenously. I spread out the oral C during the day, 1000 or 2000 milligrams at a time to keep the plasma level high enough to be lethal to the remaining tumour cells. I do all the other non-controversial therapeutic things such as lots of fish oil for Omega 3, 8 oz. per day of pomegranate juice (as an anti inflamataory; P/C is very inflammatory), lots of fresh vegetables, raw if you can, fresh fruit, some fish but no red meat, and it's great that your Dad exercises, encourage him to keep it up. I am 77 and work 6 days a week. I live near mountains and hike every chance I get. One more point, it is now a proven fact that STRESS HORMONES exaccerbate any form of cancer. Besides a loving family I keep my stress level under control with lots of prayer. Whether you are a Christian or not, it is a historical fact that Jesus was the greatest healer that ever walked the face of the earth; your Dad couldn't find better company in his walk for life. Good Luck. The Gunner
