Prostate Cancer

Q. What dietary and other things can be done to cure prostate cancer?


The first step is a low-fat, vegetarian diet. High fat, meaty foods boost testerone’s effects and act like fertilizer on prostate cancer cells. There is evidence that lycopene, the powerful antioxidant which gives pink grapefruit and tomatoes it’s red color, reduces cancer risk. Cooking foods rich in lycopene releases it from plant cells, making it more available to your body. Studies have shown that milk-drinking men have increased incidence of prostate cancer. Avoid dairy at all costs.

Perhaps you should consider attending a NEWSTART program near you, where the above diet would be provided consistently and could be tailor-made to a certain degree, to your preference.

The second step would be to get on an exercise regimen which you can tolerate. Even if this just means isometric stretches.

There are increasing numbers of studies (See Study 1, Study 2) showing that even in advanced or recurrent prostate cancer, a change in lifestyle greatly enhances health.

The third step would be to speak with a counselor, to examine other areas in your life (spiritual and mental) which could help address other underlying issues that would aid in the healing process.

    If the person is without insurance and in a third world country, does NEWSTART have programs which may help them?

    What nutritional drinks other than Ensure (which has milk) may be used to help persons who do not have an appetite?

    Many countries have NEWSTART-like programs. Or if you would like to discuss the options of coming to Weimar, (800)525-9192.

    It is probably best that you work with a local dietitian or health professional who is familiar with NEWSTART principles who can recommend an appropriate alternative to Ensure. (Not knowing the patient’s swallowing ability and other pertinent information, we are unable to provide more information along these lines.)
