Hello, this is my first posting on this website in February of 2017 at age 72, I was diagnosed with prostate cancer. The doctor said it was stage 4 and 9 on the Gleason scale. If that was not enough the cancer had also metastasized to my bones. This is not the kind of news anybody wants to hear but it was a reality and I had to face it. I asked the doctor how long did I have to live, he replied if I did nothing 6 months to a year. So after the initial shock and pity party, I went about doing something that I haven’t read much about on these board and that is the mental game. As I mentioned after the initial shock, I said to myself screw this, I’m going to use the mental game and kill this cancer. First thing I did I was to buy a cork board and a medical figure to attach to the cork board. Yes, I know this may sound a little crazy but I had a plan. Here was my plan, every time I had to go pee ( and I had to pee a lot at night) I would take a pin and stick it in the anatomical figure and say “Killing cancer, killing cancer that’s my answer that’s my answer”. This may sound weird and primitive to a lot of you, but the reality is it felt great and isn’t that the name of the game to feel good in your mind and body? I did have a Lupron shot to go along with the wishes of my family, but I did not do any chemo or radiation. I want my own body to heal itself, I believe you can do that with the metal game, good nutrition and exercise. I believe in “What the mind can believe the mind can achieve”. I also pray for God‘s help and guidance which is the greatest power on earth. I have to say that most western doctors have zero training in nutrition and their “bedside manner” sucks. I am also seeing a Chinese trained acupuncturist twice a week and doing far infra red saunas, plus vitamin C intravenously. I am fully confident that I’m going to live well into my mid-80s. So as you can probably tell from this post, I am not a big fan of meds and big Pharma. So my advice to everybody on this website is up your mental game, focus on the future, focus on your family, focus on the positive things in life. I really do believe that the mental game can make all the difference in the world in defeating cancer. Stay strong and BELIEVE - it will make all the difference in the world.
Just believe and remember that ur-unstoppable!!!
