You are about to read some clinically proven facts about natural cures for prostate cancer and natural prostate remedies that the cancer industry isn’t sharing with the public.
The statistics don’t lie! Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men. In the US, about 221,800 men get diagnosed every year, yet only about 27,500 die each year from the disease. Unfortunately, the conventional treatment for prostate cancer leaves much to be desired.
If you’re diagnosed with the disease, the recommended treatments that you’ll receive range from chemotherapy through to surgery or radiation. What you probably won’t be told is, that the long term success rate is depressingly low. You’ll also probably be made to feel that you have no other option.
Prostate cancer surgery is anything but minor surgery. It is major surgery that has a high probability of very profound, very undesirable side-effects. Furthermore, you cannot “cut” out cancer because cancer is a systemic disease which begins with a weak immune system. How does cutting something out improve the immune system?
But there is a better way.
Would you be interested in learning about a therapy that didn’t involve costly and hazardous surgery, drugs, or radiation – and one which is clinically proven to be a far more effective way to prevent and reverse prostate cancer?
Well then, let’s get into it. Here are some of the best natural cures for prostate cancer that you’ll find anywhere.
Natural Cures for Prostate Cancer that May Save Your Life
We’re going to talk about a number of natural cures for prostate cancer. Each of them targets its own solution to the problem. If you apply a few of them in combination, you can expect faster results.
1. Selenium – The Anti-Cancer Mineral
Studies were undertaken by Dr Larry Clarke back in the 1990’s which eventually made their way into the prestigious British Medical Journal. Two third of the trial participants were men. They were given 200mg of selenium each day. The results? It was found that their risk of prostate cancer was reduced by 63%. Other studies have confirmed these findings.
The main reason why selenium is a great natural cure for prostate cancer is, that it prevents pre-cancerous cells from replicating. Further studies have found that selenium supplementation can help slow, and even reverse, the progression of prostate cancer in people who already have the disease. They have also discovered that the powerful effects of selenium are further enhanced when it’s combined with vitamin E, vitamin C and beta carotene!
By way of collaborating evidence, Japanese soils are much richer in selenium than most western countries – and five times as many American men die of prostate cancer each year than Japanese men.
It has also been observed that people who eat garlic, onion, broccoli, and whole grains have a reduced risk of cancer. But wait! All of these foods are rich in selenium – in fact, selenium is one of the reasons that these particular foods are so healthy for us. Brazil nuts are another good food source for selenium. So are pumpkin seeds.
2. Omega 3’s – There’s Nothing Fishy About It
A Swedish study tested 520 men who had been diagnosed with prostate cancer and found a strong connection between omega-3 consumption from fish oil and flaxseeds and survival rates. The bottom line is, that by taking omega-3 supplements and enjoying a preference for “oily” fish such as salmon and sardines, you can reduce your risk of getting cancer by more than a third.
Why do you think the Eskimo male population have virtually zero rates of prostate cancer? It just so happens that their main food source is fatty cold water fish, rich in omega-3. Before you jump to the conclusion that it may just be genetic, it has also been observed that Eskimo men who have migrated to other countries and adopted the “western” diet, have contracted prostate cancer like everyone else.
Fish oil contains about 30% omega-3 while flaxseed oil has about 60% omega-3. So flaxseed is the only oil that can correct the imbalance in omega-3 & 6 oils in the Western diet.
But that’s not all. Consumption of omega-3’s provides other health benefits, including the promotion of heart and circulatory health and in helping to maintain healthy cholesterol and blood pressure levels. In particular, flaxseed holds a special role in protection against pancreatic, colon, breast and prostate cancers, as well as helping to forestall the spread of melanoma.
While we’re on the subject of fats and oils, it’s important that avoid the “bad fats” such as margarine and hydrogenated oils. They contain trans-fatty acids and free radicals and are quite dangerous.
3. Zinc – For Search and Destroy
Numerous studies have now confirmed that zinc will not only prevent prostate cancers from occurring, it will actually kill rogue prostate cancer cells. This is thought to occur because of zinc’s powerful anti-inflammatory effect.
Further independent studies reported in Nature have also been able to validate that long-term zinc supplementation substantially reduces the risk of men developing advanced forms of prostate cancer.
One of the best ways to take zinc is in liquid colloidal form, or chelated zinc tablets. The “chelation” process combines the mineral with certain proteins so that our digestive system more readily absorbs the mineral. Colloidal zinc has the highest absorption rate though. Don’t buy the cheap stuff. Most of it will end up in your urine.
4. Vitamin D – Make Hay While the Sun Shines
Vitamin D is one of the most remarkable natural cures for prostate cancer yet discovered. Some have called it the “sunshine vitamin” because your body manufactures it under the influence of sunlight.
In one study, Jonathan Waxman and his colleges from Imperial College London discovered that when they gave vitamin D supplements to their male subjects who already had prostate cancer, many of them experienced a huge reduction in their severity levels.
The Journal of Clinical Oncology, January 20, 2005 also reported that men with optimum levels of vitamin D in their blood were half as likely to get prostate cancer as men with low levels.
Further studies by researchers, Hanchette and Schwartz and RJ Skowronski and his colleagues, on prostate cancer deaths in relation to sunlight, confirmed that males who received more sunlight were far less likely to develop prostate cancer and die than those who avoided the sun. Apparently, many prostate cancer cells actually have vitamin D receptors. So this vitamin can not only stop the growth of the mutated cells, it can also kill them! Other university studies have confirmed this.
In addition to this, certain male sex hormones are thought to contribute to prostate cancer. Vitamin D is believed to inhibit the action of the androgen receptor, which produces these hormones.
So we come back to eating fatty fish again. Not only are they high in omega-3’s but also rich in vitamin D. Dr Cedric Garland, a world renowned cancer authority, says that we should be receiving at least 10,000 IU of Vitamin D daily, to treat cancer effectively.
5. Baking Soda and Molasses
There was a man who had been diagnosed with prostate cancer and given up for dead by doctors. His name was Vernon Johnston. The cancer had metastasized into his bones so things were looking pretty bleak for him. But you know what? He beat the disease – and did it using baking soda.
Another guy who did the same, is Jim Kelmun. Today, he helps others to do the same. One of the things that makes baking soda among my favorite natural cures for prostate cancer is, that it works quickly and effectively – and is very easy to prepare.
Here’s what to do:
Simply mix up thoroughly 1 teaspoon of “aluminium free” baking soda with 1½ to 2 teaspoons of black-strap molasses or Manuka honey on a desert spoon or tablespoon. Take on an empty stomach with one glass of filtered water (first thing in the morning and last thing at night are best). Do this twice a day for the first week then increase to three times a day thereafter.
Continue doing this for 4-6 weeks before stopping. After a 4 week rest period, you may then repeat the protocol once again. Avoid all physical activity for at least 40 minutes after taking the mixture, because you don’t want your body to be using up the sugars in the syrup for energy. You want the cancer cells to be sucking in the sugar along with the baking soda.
6. Go Herbal
There are some powerful herbal natural cures for prostate cancer. These include:
Saw Palmetto – reduces prostate enlargement and inflammation. Works after 4-6 weeks.
Cayenne Pepper – contains Capsaicin, which has a profound anti-proliferative effect on human prostate cancer cells
Stinging Nettle – best taken in capsules. Reduces the symptoms associated with prostatitis.
Cannabis oil – if you can get it. Cannabinoids are powerful natural cures for prostate cancer. It inhibits the ID-1 gene, which is a major cause of aggressive cancers.
Black Cumin Oil – found to be particularly effective for prostate cancer and associated conditions such as prostatitis.
