It is obvious that if you are worried about the possibility of PCa, knowing that PSA tests are a waste of time and money, you have a DCE-MRI in Sydney (Royal North Shore Private Hospital, St Leonards, has a brand new 3 Tesla machine) to confirm US scans and to check for metastases – about $700; an ultrasound scan by Sean O’Connor, Sunshine Coast (see cost above); or go to New York and have a $1200 scan by Dr Robert Bard, who has done 7,000 of these to establish the amount of and degree of PCa present. If the scan shows only low blood flow to the cancer (Gleason 6 or below) you consider changing your diet, get fit, lose some surplus weight, improve your lifestyle, then rescan every 6 months and have a comparison of the amount of blood flow (thus PCa still present), or if there is a lot of blood flow (Gleason 8 or above) = dangerous, growing cancer, you fly on to Germany and have it removed in 2 hyperthermia treatments.
Then you have another scan at Sean O’Connor’s clinic, or by Dr Bard, to be comfortable you have no cancer – you must continue the change in diet/lifestyle for the rest of your life, having further scans every time you feel nervous! Remember the cancer you find is a symptom of the disease, so getting rid of the identified cancer still needs treating of the disease – getting your immune system in the best shape since you were a teenager. Read The Natural Prostate Cure, Second Edition: A Practical Guide to Using Diet and Supplements for a Healthy Prostate, Roger Mason.
Roger recommends the testing (blood and saliva) of the following hormones to ensure you are in balance:
Human Growth Factor (HGH)
Thyroxine (T4) and Triiodothryronine (T3)
To which you should add tests to determine levels of any other supplement you may be taking, such as:
Vitamins B, C, D, Selenium, calcium, magnesium, establish your essential fatty acids levels, especially the Omega 3:6 ratio, etc.
Keep in mind the lab reference ranges are often set by them after looking at the blood of tens of thousands of people who are by definition unwell. For some ranges the one for you might be just in the middle, or way out at one of the extremities (such as for vitamin D where an ideal level is at, or above the upper reference range), so you should get some other expert assistance (such as from a skilled nutritionist) to decide on your supplementation levels. This also helps overcome the doubts that may exist concerning the efficacy of the brand of supplement you are taking. The nutritionist of course wants you to buy their expensive brand, but others may work as well. The blood/saliva tests should be the ultimate determinate.
