Dear Author (and Selmer too!)
BTW, where is the post from swimom--there is a comment above, but no posting by her?????
I am happy that I have stimulated some further discussion on this matter which was my intent here! Author--your reply to me is certainly much more informative about
your intentions than your original post here. I am not against being educated about
alternative and natural approaches to keeping healthy per sec. My concern is how someone will use the information and whether it may bring false hope to someone who wants to avoid one of the present medical treatments for prostate cancer in hopes that some natural or alternative approach will do the job. Perhaps I would have a different viewpoint after reading your book. I am a very
open minded person, but also a very realistic and somewhat skeptical person. The bottom line with me is to "make me a believer" with documented proof that these natural and alternative approaches work. I do not object to trying natural and alternative approaches in conjunction with approved medical treatments, especially when they are endorsed by a reputable member of the medical community. The real question is whether or not they will work equally for all who try them. Good luck with your book!
68, 29-core biopsy 9/27/06, PSA 7.1, Stage T1c, Gleason 7 (3+4) [less than 20% in one area], Gleason 6 [less than 5% in two other areas], negative DRE, bone scan and Endorectal MRI. Completed 39 Proton radiation treatments 2/22/07-4/18/07. First PSA test 7/19/07 (3 months after treatment) was 2.1 or a 70% reduction in my PSA before treatment (this was better than the average expectation of a 50% reduction in PSA at this juncture, according to my radiation oncologist).
