I recently had the pleasure of being interviewed online by Ian Simpson, founder of the online media company, Tokyo Real. We spoke about something quite close to my heart, the signs, symptoms of prostate cancer. It really was a man to man straight talk about a subject that most men avoid. When it comes to prostate cancer many men would rather bury their heads in the sand, change the subject and never talk about it again.
Many of you reading this know my story, if you don’t please read it here – Healing Prostate Cancer Naturally.
In short I used natural methods to heal. Things like whole foods, juices, fasting, exercise, meditation, fresh air, sunshine and healthy relationships. I have no doubt you can heal yourself too.
Signs – Symptoms of Prostate Cancer
In the video above Ian and I discuss the in’s and outs of prostate health in general and my own journey with healing as well as Ian’s situation with an enlarged prostate. Since my own diagnosis it has become clearer to me that thousands of men each year have their prostate removed or receive radiation, hormone therapy or chemotherapy for no reason whatsoever. Well, there is a reason. Their doctor gets paid to perform the surgery.
What is a Prostate Biopsy?
I have spoken to so many wives whose husband’s have undergone surgery who so wished they had heard my story first. Their husbands have lost their self confidence and self esteem and been made impotent at the hands of their surgeon. I know many people reading this will think I am some kind of kook for advising men to avoid the surgeon’s knife and poisons. We all have opinions however I speak from experience. I had a prostate biopsy and so wish I never had. It involves sticking a gun type tool up your bottom and firing up to 20 needles in to your prostate. Do you think sticking a needle gun up your backside and firing around 12 to 20 needles into your prostate is going to do no damage at all? Thrusting needles into a sensitive part of a mans anatomy to get 12 or more biopsies is safe as houses? It won’t stir up any cancer in there surely will it? Doctors seem to think its fine.
Statistics on Prostate Health
Here are some statistics on mens prostates around the world.
- 50% of men in their 50’s have an enlarged prostate (non cancerous)
- 60% of men in their 60’s have an enlarged prostate (non cancerous)
- 80% of men in the 80’s have an enlarged prostate (non cancerous)
- Also known as a Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) which is a non cancerous enlarged prostate.
- Most common form of cancer in men
- Affects 1 in 6 men world wide on average
- 99% of cases are men over 50
Symptoms of Prostate Issues
- Dysuria – problems with urinating
- Frequent urination
- Difficulty urinating
- Nocturia – frequent urinating at night
- Slow and weak urine stream
- Pain in lower back, groin, abdomen, scrotum, penis, rectum, testicles
- Having painful orgasms
A man’s greatest wish when he has trouble urinating is to urinate like a firehose!
The PSA Test
PSA stands for Prostate Specific Antigen, which is a protein produced by the prostate. Now they use this blood test to screen for prostate cancer. The theory here is that cancer cells produce more PSA, so the higher the PSA the higher the chance you have cancer. Now it says Prostate specific antigen. Meaning it is specific to a man’s prostate right? Only problem is women have this antigen too! PSA is found in women with breast, lung and uterine cancers. Now here is a fact – the highest levels of PSA have been found in women recovering from breast cancer. (citation – Journal of the national Cancer Institute – October 6th 1999)
Now stick with me here. Your PSA (which is supposedly only found in men but we know is in women too) is high so you are sent for a biopsy where they stick a gun in your bottom and fire sometimes up to 20 needles into your possibly quite healthy prostate. (Healthy until it gets attacked by needles)
The Scam that is PSA Screening
The annual cost of PSA screening just in the US is $3 Billion. The PSA screenings have consistently shown false positive and false negative results. So what this means is there are literally thousands of men out there who are being over treated for low risk cancer. They are having radiation and hormone therapy, chemo etc for no reason. It is a fact that 99% of men over 70 who have an autopsy will show some amount of cancer in their prostate. They live with it and it never bothers them. Meanwhile the so called health industry is making a bucket load of money convincing men to undergo surgery to their prostates.
The Scam that is Statin Medication
Ok so I am on a roll here! Statin medication is the stuff your doctor gives you for high cholesterol and high blood pressure. Statins inhibit an enzyme called HMG-CoA reductase, which
controls cholesterol production in the liver. This medicine blocks the enzyme, preventing other molecules from activating it. The plan is it slows down the production of cholesterol.
Some facts about Statin medication.
- It is one of the most widely prescribed drugs in the world.
- 1 in 4 Americans over 45 are taking the drug (that’s 25% of men and women over 45 taking it)
- The enzyme that these drugs block also makes CoQ10 which is essential for mitochondrial health. (so the drugs stop its production)
- There are more that 900 studies proving the adverse affects of statin drugs.
Journal of the American Medical Association draws a connection between statin drugs and various forms of cancer.
Journal of the American Medical Association – 1996
“Longer term clinical trials and careful post marketing surveillance, during the next several decades are need to determine whether cholesterol lowering drugs cause cancer in humans.
In the meantime, the results of experiments in animals and humans suggest that lipid-lowering drug treatment, especially with the fibrates and statins, should be avoided.”
American Academy of Cardiology, Published in JAMA (2009)
“There is currently no evidence that ezetimibe (a statin medication) which reduces levels of low density lipoprotein cholesterol, improves clinical outcomes such as myocardial infarction or death.”
So we know its designed to prevent heart attacks and death, but there is no evidence that it does, but we do know it is linked to cancers. Can you believe that?
So with 900 studies proving adverse affects of statin drugs why does your doctor still prescribe them? Remember I mentioned $3 Billion earlier in this article? Thats just for PSA testing. Guess how much statin drugs are costing America alone? A staggering $29 Billion dollars a year! Do you think maybe that is why medical science is being ignored.
If you didn’t read my own story on taking statin drugs for 17 years you can read it here>>>
Suffice to say after the research I have done for this article I have no doubt whatsoever that my statin medication contributed to my own diagnosis of prostate cancer.
There is a far better way to heal your body of any disease rather than taking a doctors prescribed medication. Do your own research, it is all out there. The interview I did with Ian Simpson in the above video is a conversation more than an interview and its a conversation that needs to be had. Too many men are being 1. Ripped off by their GP. 2. Suffering mentally and physically after being over-treated for low risk cancer and in many instances for enlarged prostates. I hope to get this article and video to as many men as possible as it needs to be put on public record that money is what drives the Medical industry and not care for people’s needs. Having said that there are many fine doctors out there who have been brain washed by the system and the Big Pharmaceuticals to do what they do. Nutrition is something doctors need to be taught more about.
If I get one thing across with this article and video its that there is a better way. A natural way to heal not just your prostate but your body.
Please watch the video and share it with as many of your friends as you can. It’s a story that needs to be told. Leave a comment below and tell me your thoughts!
And men, please take care of your prostate!
