CalBear1974's Recent CancerCompass Activity

  • CalBear1974 has replied to a post on the message board

    In 2015, three years after I was dx with stage 4 metastatic prostate cancer (two pelvic bone mets, PSA 19, G8), I discovered Dr. Shamsuddin's book "IP6 and Inositol" in my search for anticancer natural supplements. IP6 is a molecule found in every cell of our body. It occurs naturally in many sources, especially cereals, nuts, and legumes. I started taking IP6 powder available over-the-counter at health food stores...

      If it were me,  I would  want ADT to begin immediately, followed in a month by da Vinci prostatectomy, then radiation. If you live in Florida, have Dr. Patel use the da Vinci to get that prostate out. CalBear74

        Upping the dose until you see suppression reflected in the PSA is the best strategy. I do presently 8 scoops twice a day, but there is no magic number that works for all patients. Of course, I take many other anti-cancer supplements and that complicates causality. I recently added green tea extract and alpha lipoic acid. BTW, is your milk thistle "European Milk Thistle with Isosylibin A and B"? The latter chemical ag...

          You may find this Aussie newspaper report useful. Very exciting actually and I learned a new term: "Theranostics". https://www.afr.com/lifestyle/health/nuclear-medicine-could-be-a-game-changer-for-advanced-prostate-cancer-20160926-grocv4

            I have never used this product nor would I. It uses a variety of substances that have the potential to affect the blood pressure, among other things, of users. Always check out the ingredients for drug interactions and side effects. Traditional Chinese herbal medicine can be pretty casual about this issue. I would urge everyone interested in complementary medicine to read Dr. AKM Shamsuddin's text "Inositol Hexaphos...

              I just came across this abstract on research that is pertinent to fight against PCa. I take both of these but was not aware of the apparent synergy. Berberine as I mentioned in my other post is equivalent to Metformin.  https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/29678660

                Just found your post. I have been away from this site for a while. There are two factors influencing efficacy of IP6: dose dependency and time dependency. Complicating this is the additional factor that IP6 works best with androgen-dependent cells. Dr. Shamsuddin points out in his text that androgen-independent cells are more difficult to normalize or trigger into apoptosis. I would increase the dose to 6 scoops in t...

                  Himads, Good luck on the surgery. Smart moves on the diet. Actually, I enjoy being a vegan and causing trouble in restaurants as I ask them to adapt their recipes. Seriously though, restaurants have been very gracious and done some wonderful dishes for me. I was at Berkeley during the era of "streaking". Most young people are lost when I mention that term in a historical reference. But I did not have a chance to e...

                    Himads, I have nothing new to add to the insight that choline consumption is a good candidate for the spread of lethal prostate cancer. Add meat, both red and white, plus a big glass of milk and you have a diet that will shorten a life expectancy. Here is a video that concisely presents the research supporting these statements. https://nutritionfacts.org/video/eggs-choline-and-cancer/ Your happy vegan, CalBear74
