Thermal Therapy & Other Options.
researching, we discovered an interesting
medical article stating that apparently only
about 25% of men with prostate cancer opt for
invasive procedures or radiation, whilst others
prefer to try hormone therapy, and other
options. Let's take a look ...
In May 2000 a German researcher reported that an
experimental technique was used on 440 patients
using "a probe inserted into the rectum so
cancer cells in the nearby prostate gland may be
heated and killed with ultrasound".
The report goes on to say "A recent study showed
nearly 80% of the 440 men treated had a
cancer-free follow-up test, or biopsy. Nearly
all had a clear biopsy after a second treatment
of high intensity focused ultrasound, or HIFU."

What is so interesting is that whilst the
protocol itself is rather crude, the heating
protocol was successful, which is not surprising
as it is scientifically proven that heating
up cancer cells weakens them.
Evidence of this is supported by numerous global
resources and medical research including
PubMed.com and The National Cancer Institute
(NCI) - the U.S. government’s principal agency
for cancer research.
The NCI Fact Sheet states:
- also called thermal therapy or thermotherapy -
is a form of heat therapy in which body tissue
is exposed to high temperatures (up to 113°F).
Research has shown that high temperatures can
damage and kill cancer cells, usually with
minimal injury to normal tissues
1) By killing cancer cells and damaging proteins
and structures within cells.
2) Hyperthermia may shrink tumors."

Consult with your health practitioner for
guidance regarding thermal therapy if
considering this option.
FYI: Thermal Therapy - also
called Hyperthermia - is an ancient form of
healing more commonly recognized as heat
therapy, which is safely and comfortably,
generated by Far Infrared heat (FIR).
FIR works best
when positioned close to the body, the heat
penetrating 2 1/2" or so, working from the
inside out of the cells, to combat and terminate
cancer. Thermal oncology is an established
therapy outside the USA.
Men Only - Options:
1) What is PSA?
The prostate gland produces a substance called
PSA (prostate specific antigen). A small
amount of PSA can be found in blood, but it is
mostly found in semen.
PSA is measured by nanograms per millimeter of
blood. Most men have under 4 nanograms.
Anything above 4 may indicate a problem. High
PSA numbers indicate cancer and must be

5) Dairy products should be
There is now plenty of scientific evidence
that excessive calcium intake increases the
chance of metastatic prostate cancer.
In 1998, Harvard
researchers published a study of dairy
product intake among 526 men diagnosed with
prostate cancer and 536 similar men not
diagnosed with the disease.
The study found a 50% increase in prostate
cancer risk and a near doubling of risk of
metastatic prostate cancer among men
consuming high amounts of dairy products,
likely due, say the researchers, to the high
total amount of calcium in such a diet.
A Harvard study on the topic, published in
October 2001, looked at dairy product intake
among 20,885 men and found men consuming the
most dairy products had about 32% higher
risk of developing prostate cancer than
those consuming the least.

"Research shows a mixed fruit punch could
provide a devastating blow against prostate
cancer. The blueberry, red and white grape,
raspberry and elderberry cordial rapidly

the results were comparable to drugs used to

said the drink had shown 'promising results'
but cautioned that the research was still at
an early stage. Debbie Clayton, the
