EliasJ is my husband and in December of 2015 he was diagnosed with Advanced Prostate Cancer - pT3BM1NO/Gleason 4+3=7. His PSA level then was 1,142 - a shocking number. He was totally symptom-less until a couple of weeks prior to official diagnosis. Because he was declared as being beyond surgery and radiation, the monthly injection of LupronDepot was prescribed by his urologist plus the daily med -a generic of Casodex and the Tamusolin (sp?).
I put him on an all organic diet, eliminated the red meat, reduced greatly the amount of chicken, increased the fresh vegetables and fruits, juiced fresh organic carrots daily, incorporated meals from The Oil-Protein Diet Cookbook by Dr. Johanna Budwig and added a multi-mineral & Vitamin Supplement called Cellect.
Three months after diagnosis, his PSA level dropped to 30 and 6 months later to 6.9. Yes, we were all elated. Can't say exactly what contributed to the drop - was it the combination of meds & diet? Who knows? But my beloved husband threw caution to the wind and slowly but surely kissed the diet goodbye. And I completely understand why. Probably would have done the same myself.
Late 2017 he became "resistant" to the Lupron and was referred to an oncologist. Xtandi was given a four month try. Nothing. PSA continued to climb while on the Xtandi so oncologist switched him to Zytiga. Oncologist said if Zytiga has no effect, then the next step is chemo and that scares me.
My dad was also diagnosed with prostate cancer around the same time my husband was and his PSA then was 432. Dad lives in Europe and has been on an ADT protocol off and on since diagnosed. Recently his doctor added an Amino Acid Treatment to the ADT protocol. His PSA is now below 1. Needless to say, I am now reading Amino Acid articles and studies (which studies are not written for the layman). Maybe, just maybe, I will glean something useful.
