prostate cancer

  1. Prostate cancer treatment plan is all wrong, and study proves it

    Common prostate treatment is a DEADLY mistake

    Guys, they’ll say your prostate cancer is gone, this time hopefully for good. The operation was a success, and you’re now… officially… cancer-free.

    But don’t start shaking hands just yet.

    They’ll also tell you something else...

    You’re NOT out of the woods!

    If you’ve already had more than one battle with prostate cancer, you know there’s always a risk it can return yet again.

    And since these tumors can be fueled by testosterone, they’ll urge you take drugs to cut your levels of these “manly” hormones if the cancer returns.

    But new research exposes the SINISTER truth about these meds…

    And it’s something EVERY MAN facing this disease a second time needs to know before going into treatment.

    Because these drugs could set off a tragic chain of events that makes your cancer battle look like a picnic!

    The TRUE toll of hormone therapy after prostate cancer

    The new study focused on the only thing worse than a cancer scare… and that’s when the cancer comes back.

    All of the men in the study had been treated for prostate cancer with surgery, only to see the disease return later.

    They were probably reassured to learn there’s a plan in place for it – one you’d THINK would be backed by rigorous science.

    Nope!

    There’s a plan all right, but it’s never truly been put to the test.

    Until now.

    Under the guidelines, prostate cancer that returns after surgery is supposed to be treated with a one-two punch of radiation followed by those hormone drugs.

    Some of the guys in the study got just that.

    But some of them unknowingly got something else: They were given that same radiation treatment, but a placebo instead of the hormone drug.

    And in one set of men, this approach was not only SAFER…but it also worked BETTER and helped to SAVE lives.

    Guys with low PSA who took the hormone drug, on the other hand, had:

    • NO overall survival benefit;
    • TWO TIMES the risk of death from all other causes; and
    • THREE TO FOUR TIMES the risk of serious heart and/or neurological problems!

    They also, of course, had to face potential side effects of low testosterone including sexual dysfunction and urinary problems. Low testosterone can also lead to muscle loss, brain fog, fatigue and more.

    These guys suffered all that thinking it would help to protect them… to save them… to ensure they’d live a long and healthy life.

    Instead, they got the opposite.

    The study finds guys with high PSA might still benefit from the drugs.

    But let’s face it: This is more proof of the reality that EVERY cancer is different. And any attempt at a “guideline” that applies to ALL MEN and ALL CANCERS is pure folly.

    So talk to you doctor about your overall risk. Next, talk to another doctor to get a second opinion. And make the best decision tailored to YOUR needs.

    And finally, call a holistic medical doctor who can help work with you on natural therapies that can help ensure the cancer never returns.

  2. Prostate cancer treatment linked to heart risk

    [URGENT] Deadly warning over prostate cancer drug

    It’s an absolute travesty how men with prostate cancer are exploited by mainstream medicine.

    They see your cancer as a chance to make money by exploiting your fear over the “c” word; they’ll rush you into (a highly profitable) treatment before you have a chance to do your homework, make your own decisions and change your mind.

    So today, I’ve got a different option for you...

    It’s NOT expensive.

    And it WON’T make your oncologist rich.

    But it will help you to avoid the ugly new risk of one of the most common treatments for prostate cancer – and it’s something much, much worse than a tumor.

    You could spend the rest of your life with a potentially DEADLY heart condition!

    Your cancer treatment could STOP your heart

    The new study links testosterone-blocking drugs for prostate cancer to delays in the QT interval, or the little space between heartbeats where your heart recharges.

    You know what happens when your phone battery starts to have trouble recharging, right?

    Yeah. It means you’ll be needing a new battery – or maybe a new phone – real soon.

    But of course your heart isn’t as easy to repair and/or replace as a phone battery, so the net result is a higher risk of serious heart problems as well as death.

    And that’s just ONE WAY this horrible treatment can take a hammer to your heart…

    One study last year found guys who’ve had androgen deprivation therapy face a higher risk of heart failure, with the odds jumping by:

    • 72 percent in the 12 months after treatment
    • 53 percent in the 3 years after treatment
    • Up to 90 percent higher in some cases

    That’s not even getting into what happens when the drugs work “right” and “without side effects.” Since the drugs deplete your testosterone, you’ll end up slow, weak, tired and unable to perform in the bedroom.

    In other words, you might be alive...

    But you might not FEEL alive!

    And since testosterone is also essential to cognitive function, guys on these drugs face almost two and a half times the risk of dementia, according to a 2016 study.

    But the real tragedy is that you might not have needed the meds in the first place!

    Many cases of prostate cancer AREN’T dangerous.

    I know that can sound a little crazy… it’s CANCER, after all… but the tumors often grow so slowly that they will never cause a problem. And the older you are, the less likely it’ll need treatment.

    So make sure you get a second opinion so you know ALL of your options—including the possibility of doing nothing at all.

    And if you choose treatment, work with a holistic medical doctor who can help you to detoxify during and after therapy to help minimize both the short-term side effects and long-term risks.
