The next piece in the ongoing series on prostate cancer. This one futures some tips and results from our customers. We’ve got lots of amazing customers so might as well crowdsource this!
Once again, this is not medical advice. I and Lost Empire Herbs makes no claims as to what our customers share here. I share this in that it can be a starting point of your own research. And contrary to messages spread today, I think it is important to do your own research! Sadly, this is necessary today when our health institutions and systems are as corrupted as they are.
This also fits in alignment with the philosophical view that cancer (as well as other diseases) are not caused by lack of drugs. Instead, natural substances and lifestyle changes can allow the body to heal itself, it’s birthright in being able to do so.
“Logan, this was an excellent, and timely, article. I HAVE had cancer, so this is not what I would do, but what I DID do. While I used a variety of herbs, the main ones for skin cancer was an eggplant skin extract. It worked quickly and well. As well as thoroughly getting rid of the cancer. For lung cancer (I smoked 2 packs a day for 43 years!), I used chlorella. It cured it as if it were nothing more than a common cold. Again, these weren’t the only herbs; and the herbal treatments weren’t the sole treatment. Changes in diet, lifestyle, and the way I perceived my cancers (I viewed them as scared little children in my meditations who just needed a hug), all contributed to my still being here. Again, I’m phrasing this in a western manner, but that isn’t exactly accurate. It is, however, easier for most people to understand. Thanks for your article.” – Jim L.
Congrats on kicking cancer to the curb as easily as a common cold! I wish that were the case for more people.
The key part here is “Changes in diet, lifestyle, and the way I perceived my cancers” that led to success. Far, far too little attention is paid to the psychological impact of cancer and how much outlook can determine success or failure of any treatment.
Cancer is a holistic disease and thus must be treated holistically.
Eggplant skin extract is a new one to me! But this is how things go; I hear about something, and whether or not I research it then, it gets filed away in my memory for it to almost always pop up again sometime later.
Would love to read more about resolving prostate issues. My issues motivated me to search PubMed and elsewhere. The searches turned up interesting papers and articles on the following potential remedies:
- red maca root tincture
- pomegranate extract and pomegranate seed oil
- ursolic acid (in holy basil and other herbs)
- pumpkin oil or seed extract
- fucoxanthin and fucoxanthinol
- vitamin D3
- and more including a number of herbs from traditional Chinese medicine and from Ayurveda.
And the following for restoring the strength of the detrusor muscle of the bladder, which purportedly may be the source of the problem in some men.
- Cranberry extract, trade name FLOWENS(R).
If interested let me know and I’ll send my full list.
As this list shows there is a LOT out there. In many cases, the science may be relatively small, but then again you also see some of the things on this list over and over and over again for far more than just prostate cancer.
This also speaks to prevention. How many of these things are you taking? How many are you getting in your diet or from lifestyle?
Everyone has heard “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” But the question is, are you LIVING this?
RE prostate health, and particularly BPH, one herb that helps a lot, is hairy willow herb, or epilobium parviflorum. I’ve been using a tincture…Very helpful.
What’s most interesting, is that the same formulation helps women, too; it helps older men GO, and it helps older women STOP (leakage,urinary urgency, etc.). Same tincture, it’s bottled two ways, one for men, one for women.
This product is made by people who grow their own herbs, do their own extraction, have their own lab, have defined which chemical in the herb is the active ingredient, produce a tincture with a known amount, bottle a product with a metered dose of this…and it works well.
I use this, plus beta sitosterol for my BPH, and have been able to put off prostate surgery for years. Hopefully I can wait until the surgeries are perfected; as of now, there are at least a dozen surgical techniques. The fact that there are a dozen methods, and one has not become the clear winner, shows the surgery is not perfected, yet.
Again, this is one I haven’t even heard of before. I haven’t tried the product and besides Josh don’t know of anyone else that has. But if you’re having some of the issues here it might be worth looking into and trying.
I take an experimental approach to health. And this is what I encourage with our herbs, other supplements and with any other health intervention. Try something, see if it works for you. If it does keep going or do even more!
If it doesn’t, do some more research and move onto the next thing.
These are just a few responses from the recent prostate article series with customers sharing what’s worked for them.
