AEG, below is part of a post I wrote recently on my diet and supplement routine. I started this about
6 weeks before surgery and have continued after. I used to take saw palmeto for mild prostati***, it supposedly helps improve urnine volume but I have never heard of it as a cancer preventitve. I have read some articles on Pomogranite juice as beneficial to suppressing prostate cancer and I drink a small cup every day.
I have been on what I call an anti-inflamitory diet too since nerve inflamation is a big part of what we are trying to overcome. I've cut way back on red meat, the bad oils and processed food in general. I eat lots of food with omega 3's like salmon, walnuts, ground flax seed (for cerial), eggs and shrimp. I also eat pasta with lots of olive oil and garlic and I eat allot of fruit and veggies.
600mg of Alpha Lipoic Acid every day. I read a study some time ago where they used this supplement on Diabetics with nerve damage and it helped to restore their nerve function. 50mg of CQ10 which is supposed to be good for the heart and circulatory system. I also take 50mg of selenium every day but only because it happened to be in my medicine cabinet and I figured what the hell. Daily multi vitamin too.
