Healing prostate cancer naturally is something I am very proud of. It’s also something that was bloody hard to do! This is the story of how I did it with a lot of help from my favourite herb, turmeric and my favourite cowboy Don Tolman!
Ok so this is my very first blog post for this website, Turmeric Heals. And I thought what better way to start than to praise the healing powers of turmeric through my own experience of healing.
In August 2012, I began a 10 week secondment in my job at a place called Curtin. I was an Immigration Officer at the time and Curtin is a very hot desolate place in the north east of Western Australia. It was also the name of the Immigration Detention centre where I was about to spend my next 10 weeks.
On the day i arrived I received a phone call from my urologist confirming I had prostate cancer. Ok. Lets back track one month.
In early July of that year my urine was a little slow in the mornings. This concerned me so i went and saw my doctor who performed a few tests including a PSA (Prostate specific antigen) blood test. A high level indicates that cancer may be present in the prostate. But it is not 100% accurate. My result was a 6. A little on the high side. My doctor then arranged a scan which showed my prostate was enlarged. As a result I found myself marching off to a urologist, having a biopsy and awaiting the result. Lets head back to Curtin…
The doctor told me I had prostate cancer. He said it was around 5%. Not a high amount but enough for him to encourage me to have my prostate removed once I returned home. Now being told you have cancer is not one of life’s bucket list moments. However when he said those words my mind instantly went into positive mode like a steel trap. There was no way I was going to let this trespasser, cancer, stay in my body. My thoughts were, ok its there now but it is not staying. My mind and body will make sure of that.
Being 4,000 kilometres from home and not knowing a lot of the people in the centre made it very tough initially. And having my partner, Joy, back home in Queensland made it even tougher. The hardest part was ringing and telling her I had cancer. It was tougher for her than it was for me. In my mind I already had it beat. Convincing her was the hard part. (And getting hold of lots of turmeric!)
Being away from home turned out to be a blessing. It gave Joy and I both time to research the implications, the alternatives and exactly what it was I had. Turns out that prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men and if autopsies were performed on most men over 70 there would be some trace of prostate cancer in them. So it was not a death sentence. Men can and do live long healthy lives with prostate cancer present in their bodies. Healing prostate cancer naturally was at the top of my priority list.
Finding Don Tolman
While I was away Joy went to a seminar run by an American dude name Don Tolman. He is known as the ‘Whole Foods Cowboy’ and his message is all about being able to heal our bodies through our diet, fasting, exercise, fresh air, sunshine, good relationships and meditation.
When I returned I went to see an alternative doctor and also booked in to see Don Tolman. The alternative doctor put me Vitamin C Therapy for a couple of weeks and then gave me a blood test for PSA. It returned a reading of 6. Still in the high level. She then suggested because I was relatively young to have my prostate removed. I gasped in horror when she told me that and vowed never to return. After seeing Don Tolman I was convinced I could heal myself. Don is larger than life and his philosophy and thoughts on the medical industry and healing through whole foods resonated strongly with me. Don put me on a particular dietary protocol for 90 days that included a juice called Cabala juice, a rolled oats with flaxseed breakfast, lots of fruit and vegetables, brazil nuts and lots of broccoli. He also encouraged cutting out meat and dairy for 12 months and to include turmeric as often as possible.
I embraced his protocol. I did a two week fast on cabala juice (carrots, 3 apples, 1 beetroot, 1 lemon and I added turmeric and ginger) and included Don’s signature snack ‘Pulse’. I had the rolled oats every morning for the 90 days. Before the 90 days were up I was urinating like a fire hose! Haha! My prostate had returned to normal size and I was no longer struggling to urinate. It was truly amazing. I used an Oscar Neo DA 1000 juicer that was fantastic!
After around 5 months I had my PSA tested and it was way back down to 2. Don Tolman recommended not ever having a biopsy again so I never have. His reason being the needles it shoots at high speed into your prostate can disrupt the cancer cells and help them to spread. I totally agree.
Healing Prostate Cancer Naturally
Is my cancer gone? I believe it has. My PSA remains at 2 or lower and the only real way to find out is to have another biopsy, but for the reasons above there is no way I will do that.
I know my body now better than any doctor and I know my body is pure and clean. I knew there was something wrong before I was diagnosed and was not surprised to hear it was cancer. Today i know my prostate is perfectly healthy and I continue to follow Don’s protocol of good healthy living. I have never been fitter or healthier. I run more than 20 k every week, swim and do weights. Healing prostate cancer naturally was a no brainer for me. Turmeric was a major part of my healing and I will cover its healing properties in many more posts to come. Suffice to say it truly has been a miracle healing food for me along with other fruits and vegetables.
I know for many men the thought of healing prostate cancer naturally is a frightening thought. We have been brainwashed to believe that our doctor knows best. There is compelling research and evidence these days proving that we can heal our bodies through our minds and just as much evidence that foods like turmeric play a major role in the healing process. Two doctors encouraged me to have my prostate removed. I chose not to. Since that day I have been contacted by many men and in fact many wives of men wishing they had know about my story. They would never have had their prostate removed. Women tell me their husbands and partners have lost confidence and self esteem by going down the medical route.
This article is in no way telling people not to seek medical advice or to follow my way of handling this experience. It is simply my experience and how I dealt with it. It is your choice totally. I just want people to know there is an alternative to radiation, chemotherapy and having your prostate removed. Check out Don Tolman here
