from whatever little i know (since being diagnised with prostate cancer at age 58 with no symptoms or discomfort and otherwise good health and active sporty life) is to have lots of fruits and veg - in fact shamelessly! this is what i do:
first half of the day, just fruits (should be had empty stomach not after meals as is the norm), pomegranate juice (known to retard growth of prostate cancer) a glass of raw vegetable juice (any vegetables of the season) one hour before lunch and dinner, a handful of nuts in the afternoon, salad and sprouts should precede the meal that should primarily be vegetables (include asparagus and brocolli). do not get overwhelmed, it takes just a little while to get used to it and to get organised.
do not get intimidated either - if one has been a good boy for 10 days or so, have a binge - come back and down a glass of veg juice! i have been doing the above, have an USFDA approved immune boosting supplement (along with a supplement for the prostate) and go to a spiritual healer once a fortnight, play regular game of squash and i have not done any treatment (on active surveillance as diagnosis was low grade cancer) - am lucky so far as the MRIs indicate the tumour size has reduced.
hope this helps. best wishes.

I have prostate cancer and regret lupron injection. It has given me night sweats. I take green tea, essiatic tea and saw palmetto along with pomagranate seed extract. i use around 3 pounds of sugar a year. I also eat home grown tomatoes and pole beans.

My Father, God bless was treated with Lupron, I watched for years him suffer pain and hot flashes and not get any better. I wish he would have had the surgery....6 years after diagnosis he passed away. His death was very painful as the cancer had invaded his bones. I think that if he had of been told how horrible his last months of life would be he surely would have taken the surgery and not been mislead and stubborn. He never saw an oncologist was treated by his urologist. My Mother is now alone and sad, they could have lived longer together and my Dad might have died of natural causes rather than wither away to a skeleton in agony. Any men out there that are apprehensive, please get educated and don`t let embarrassment keep you from getting the right treatment for you at the time of diagnosis. I sure miss my Dad.
