Huck - My Journey (BP and Aortic Stenosis)

    Thanks for your comment Inger. I have been following the leptin rx for 2 years and my health has improved greatly, but I think I may be in a race now between cancer and my less than optimal health. If I have slow growing cancer, I have time to try alternatives; but if it is fast growing, I need to stop it while I still can.

    All indications are that it is slow growing and I have put off the biopsy for months to try to kill the cancer following what I have learned on this site. Killing the cancer is probably unlikely, but stopping its growth is certainly possible. Finding a urologist that understands prostate cancer is a challenge. They are surgeons and their answer is needle biopsy and then surgery. I have accepted that I most likely will have to have a biopsy to determine the amount and size of the cancer, but will not have surgery and will use other alternatives if necessary for treatment.

    I had a biopsy 12 years ago that came back negative. I think the worst part was the noise the gun makes when it takes a sample. It seemed to magnify the pain from the needle. I'm just upset that the standard practice is still blind biopsies when better technology is available.

    Rudy Giuliani had brachytherapy (seeds). If I have to have treatment, I am strongly leaning toward proton therapy. Hampton University has a treatment center and I grew up in Hampton and lived there until about 5 years ago. Nice little beach and plenty of golf courses.

    One thing good about proton therapy is they combine with it nutritional, exercise, social counseling. You are treated 5 days a week for about 6 weeks. It only takes a few minutes and the rest of the day you are free to play golf, exercise, site see, etc. Many patients refer to treatment as their radiation vacation. When you look at the patient base, it is doctors, lawyers, business executives, airline captains, judges, engineers, etc. The common man gets surgery and the well off and better educated get protons. It's the only prostate cancer treatment with a fan club.

    A few centers have gone to pencil-beam proton therapy. I'm trying to find if that is a significant improvement, but so far I haven't found much.

    What is allopathic chemotherapy and XRT?

    What type pf radiotherapy is available without a biopsy and diagnosis of cancer?

    The general guideline is PSA should be under 4. Mine has been over 4 for about 15 years, but I am not seeing the doubling that is often seen with cancer. From the graph, you can also see that if anything, there has been a slight downward trend in PSA over the last 18 months. My Free PSA and PCA3 lab tests also show a low probability of cancer. Yet my doctor and urologist both see only cancer and are not even looking at prostatitis or BPH.

    Huck, this sounds really good to me. Are you getting lots of sun while you walk? This winter, can you get access to magnetism? Those are our primary sources of energy for those bone broth semiconductors. January will probably be your lowest energy state if you don't get a substitute for the bright sunshine.

    I'm looking at the red light nasal doohickey, but the ones I have seen online look a little snake oilish to me. I haven't seen any that have actually been tested and proven to have results.

    One thing I noticed is that both the altitude and the strength of the sun seem to matter. The sun has dropped below 50 degrees, but for the last few days the temperature has been about 85 degrees and my blood pressure has stayed near normal. So strong sunshine can compensate for the lower altitude of the sun. I try to spend at least 2 hours a day in direct sunlight. I also started using my golite for 15 minutes in the morning.

    My plan is to get a small RV and spend most of the winter along the gulf coast. If Mexico wasn't such a scary place I would head down there for a month or 2 each winter. I was hoping to start this winter, but I may have to put off for a while.

    Yeah, in Winter in Texas at least, the sun can get quite hot if you find a place out of the wind to sit in.

    I'm interested in the red lights too. But I don't want to spend a lot of money at this time. I doubt you will see much testing at this time, though. It's all so new. My computer mouse has a very bright red laser, but I don't know what wavelength it is. I've been messing around with it a bit, though, on the forehead, up the nose. Don't feel much difference, but I did put it on a bump that was on my knee, for several days, and the bump disappeared. Come to think about it, I wonder what it would do with a cyst on my wrist. Iodine is slowly reducing it, but often I don't want to go around with a brown spot.

    You know Huck, I somewhere read about a women having biopsy.. a real story, and the cancer spread like mad after that... and actually that is what I think happened with my DH bro who recently died from melanoma.. So back then I decided to not ever have a biopsy in my life. Instead just immediately start to live as anti cancer as it gets, and if I think I still have gotten cancer, even more anticancer. there is always something to improve and optimize.

    Did you tan nude, BTW? I really think this is very important... nude and grounded. And you take your walks bare foot too? (in the nature / on sand or grass.. not on asphalt for sure.lol)

    I think this is good news. VCU Medical Center started doing MRI guided biopsies about a year ago and their biopsy specialist has done at least 100 guided biopsies. They do the MRI (3 Tesla) first and then you come back for the biopsy if necessary. And it is covered under Medicare. I was worried about this as I had read on a prostate cancer board that it wasn't. The bad news is I have to get my urologist to send in a referral. He's going to be "pissed" he won't be getting the money for doing the biopsy.

    I had number of prostate biopsies.
    That was before I have seen opinion that (bloody) surgery with knife may propagate cancer cells.

    If I need and decide to have treatment, 1st choice is radiation and 2nd choice is radiation and 3rd choice is radiation.

    How will you go about deciding that you have cancer that needs treatment? Biopsy seems to propagate cancer, so it would make sense to avoid it.

    I am taking that about radiation you are more inclined toward proton radiation.

    I think the info on biopsy spreading cancer leans toward it doesn't. But if it is true, having an MRI first will eliminate unnecessary biopsy and should also mean fewer samples are needed if biopsy is called for. At VCU, the MRI (3 Tesla) is done and then the biopsy is done only if the MRI indicates the likelihood of cancer.

    My 1st choice is proton beam, then IMRT, and then brachy. I would even suffer through hormone therapy before I would consider surgery.

    I would just go back to the nature, Huck.... but that is me....
    I am convinced since many years that nature has the best healing powers. So far it never failed to heal in my own personal experiences
    But it is a radical road to walk. And very different than what we get propagated in today's world

    I loved these pictures from beautiful Scandinavian tales since I was a kid... now I know why



    Where is the electricity, the fake lights, the EMFs and the clothes? I do not wonder one bit this word felt through the picture was magic to me. And that magic I feel every time I am in the wild
    Sometimes tales can give us a clue....

    My fbg was 59 this morning. I thought maybe it was a bad test strip, so retested and got 62. I think the lowest I ever had before was 74, so I wonder what changed. I started purposely grounding yesterday, as opposed to accidental grounding when I work in the garden, etc. Maybe that's what did it.

    I grounded again today and ate about the same foods, so tomorrow's reading should tell if it is the grounding that caused it.
