See my below history and how D3,K2 (MK-7), Magnesium, and Omega 3 gems (Norwegian Fish Oil, Omega 3 fatty Acids) may be stopping or even regressing my prostate cancer.
In May of 2009 after a sixteen needle biopsy I was diagnosed with prostate cancer. I was 63 years old. The pre-operative pathology report revealed that only five percent of my prostate was cancerous with a pre-operative Gleason score of 6 (3+3). After (nerve sparring) Robotic surgery in August 2009, I was diagnosed with the following: primary staging pT2; Gleason score 7( 3+4); margins clean, seminal vessels clean, lymph nodes clean, 5% of prostate is cancerous.
Below is my PSA history.
10/19/09 .01 after removing my prostate (robotic surgery)
Sept 11- salvage radiation (38 treatments)
April 12 - moved from California to Upstate New York
6/16/15 .10 different urologist and lab
12/11/15 .12 started taking D3 (16,000 IU’s per day)
6/16/16 .14 started taking D3 (20,000 IU’s per day)
9/20/16 .13 raised D3 to 30,000 IU’s per day and also taking Vitamin K2 & K1 and Magnesium.
6/12/17 .10 raised D3 to 42,000 IU’s per day and also raised my K2 (MK7,MK4) and Magnesium.
9/19/17 raised D3 to 50 IU’s per day and also raised my K2 (MK7,MK4) and Magnesium. I went to a different type of D3 and start using just k2(MK7).
12/7/17 .13 I am now going back to Carlson Solar D Gems D3 and Life Extension Super K’s and see if that makes a difference. When my PSA went back to .13 I had a bad infection in my stomach area following a triple stomach hernia operations. I was in the hospital for four days on antibiotics. I heard that a bad infection can temporally raise your PSA score.
Since I started taking D3 and subsequently raised the amount, my PSA readings have started to decline. I am also taking fish oil (Omega-3), Vitamin K1 and K2 (MK-7, MK-4). I take Vitamin K2 to make sure that most of my calcium is going into my bones and not my blood. I am also taking magnesium to help keep my blood pressure low and it is essential for D3 absorption into our cells. I have read a lot of articles and three books revealing how vitamin D3 (which is a hormone and eventually turns into a steroid) & vitamin K2 can destroy or slow down slow growing prostate cancer cells. Notice my PSA results during the summer months, starting in May of 2015. The sun helps create vitamin D3 in your body. This winter, I increased my vitamin D3 through supplements because of the lack of sunlight. My latest PSA reading went down .03 to .10 which was the reading I had in May of 2015. I just had some recent blood tests and here are some of my results. Vitamin D 25 Hydroxy (108 ng/mL); Calcium (9.1 mg/dL, well within the range); Cholesterol (166 mg/dL); HDL (62 mg/dL); LDL (87mg/dL); Triglycerides (86 mg/dL). My current blood pressure is around 105 over 70, 56 pulse rate. As you can see, except for the first test all my test results fall with the standard range. The key of mega dosing D3 is to take K2 with it. I take one Super K pill (Life Extension) for ever 10,000 IU's of Vit D3. Each pill contains the following: 1500 mcg of K1, 1000 mcg of K2 (mk-4), 200 mcg of K2 (mk-7). I also take a lot of fish oil (omega 3) and Magnesium supplements. The bottom line is even though my D3 level is 108 ng/mL, the calcium in my blood is normal. There goes the myth of toxicity of having too much calcium going into your blood (calcification of the arteries) with high doses of D3. Remember, you must take K2 (MK-7) along with the D3 to avoid toxicity. It looks like I am getting results. What I am doing may just work with people with low Gleason scores and low volume of prostate cancer. The following books explain what I am doing.
