I joined this Forum shortly after I was diagnosed with Advanced prostate cancer in early 2020. Having been told by my oncologist team that my Gleeson was 9 and the cancer had metastasized to my hip and I had no chance of cure and could expect to live for another 5 years, maybe a little longer. My PSA was 78 at that point. I accepted Hormone treatment but refused chemo. It was at this point that I decided to seek alternative therapies. My PSA dropped first to 13 and then to 4, then to 1 over six months whilst only having the hormone treatment and the alternative treatments that I had chosen. I then underwent radiotherapy treatment, in the main to appease my family.
I had decided to seek any alternative treatment I could in any format in the hope that it might help and considering that I had little to lose. The medical team were very dismissive and said I was 'chasing dreams' and to be careful. My alternative treatments were, Cannabis following Rick Simpson plan which I completed, its tough but I did it. Plus I took, (and still take) huge quantities of vitamin C (2,000mg per day) & vitamin D 28,000ml, Iodine, Turmeric, Ginger, , green teas and regular Tuina massage treatment. I luckily found somebody who has guided me through this extreme vitamin regime.
When I completed my Radiotherapy I asked my NHS oncologist if I could have a scan to assess the results, he refused explaining that I would only be eligible for a scan "When" my condition deteriorated. After much deliberation I decided to go privatly for a full body MRI scan at London's leading Cancer treatment hospital. It was a decision I didn't take lightly "be careful what you wish for' came to mind. But I could hardly have asked for a better result when they called me two days later explaining that I was totally free of cancer! Whilst we all hope for such results I did not expect it.
I withdrew from this forum some time ago as a few people said I was wasting my time having non medically proven treatments and supplements and were very negative..
I have made this post to encourage everybody to keep an open mind and do not dismiss any thing that may help, clearly I do not know exactly what has removed my terminal cancer but I am certain the various things some on this forum said were futile and a waste..... were not! I don't think that I can thank any one thing for this result, it could be one, it could be a combination.
Good luck to all who's lives are decimated by this cruel illness, but please keep an open mind on alternative treatments, and never give up.
