Prostate Cancer from Florida — Hormone therapy & radiation failed

My man was diagnosed Oct 2012 with prostate cancer with metastases to his sacrum.   His Gleason’s score was 4+4=8 Stage 4 cancer.  His PSA was 99.

We live in Florida (USA) and went the medical oncology route beginning with hormone therapy -Trelstar injection from his urologist which lowered his PSA. then a chemo iv drip with zometa was used which caused some bones to weaken so it was discontinued.

His PSA generally stays between 12 and 5.  This year when his psa was at 15 he underwent 45 external radiation treatments which were aimed to his prostate, and sacrum as well as several smaller tumors on other nearby bones. Treatment ended May 1, 2015.
The follow up imaging in June 2015 showed no decrease in tumor size and uptake but the doctors all state how pleased they are since “they consider” NO GROWTH OR INCREASE as Remission even though the cancer remains the same.   His bone pain is much worse now
( he also has some degenerative bone and muscle disease)  he had to quit working last week and is now on disability. They want him to see an orthopedic specialist. He is 54 years old.

After reading your website I am intrigued at a possibility of a better way of handling this.  I would appreciate your thoughts if you have time to share them with me.   I would be very appreciative.

Sincerely and respectfully.

Reply: I am too far away to be able to help you. If I am sick, and live in Florida…I would go to this place: http://hippocratesinst.org/Hippocrates Health Institute offers natural health care and education.

It is amazing to me that we get this immediate Response from you. It takes much longer to hear from Most of his doctors and they live within A few miles from us. Thank you for your reply.  I have looked At the website you recommended and I will do the research tomorrow.   Are you personally aware of anyone having gone to them?   Have a pleasant day. Respectfully,

“At War With Cancer: One Couple’s Strategic Battles for Survival Using Both Traditional and Alternative Treatments” 

When diagnosed with Stage IV kidney cancer, LTC (Ret) Michael Lee Lanning faced a new and fearsome enemy that the doctors said would kill him in 6-18 months. Instead of accepting this as his fate, Lanning, with the help of his wife Linda, pursued strategies–both conventional and alternative–to battle his disease and fight for his life. This book tracks the Lannings’ war with cancer from diagnosis to survival, from exploring traditional treatments at M. D. Anderson Cancer Center to transitioning to a raw vegan lifestyle learned at Hippocrates Health Institute, from enduring the depths of despair to embracing the heights of hope. Their experiences and insights shared here is the information they sought for themselves when Lanning was first diagnose.

 

 

Prostate Cancer from Palembang

Dear Dr. Teo,

I am Ko from Indonesia. My grandpa has diagnosed prostate cancer after got TURP laser in Melaka Hospital because he cannot pee in middle of 2011. At that time the Doctor suggested us to cut off the prostate to remove the cancer cells, it needs 15,000 RM but we ignored it because of financial problem.

Now he found blood in his pee. I want to ask how to help my grandpa, is there herbal treatment for his cancer? And how much the average price for the medicine because I have a plan to bring his to your CA CARE..

I look foward to hearing your answer. Thank you for your attention Dr. Teo.

I live at Jakarta but my granpa at Palembang ( South Sumatera ).

 

Prostate Cancer: Surgery, Hormonal Therapy and Chemo Did Not Cure Him

Dear Prof Teo,

Our 76 years old father is having recurring metastatic prostate cancer. He was diagnosed with stage 3+ PC 7 years ago. The cancer has gone into a few of his lymph nodes. He went through a prostatectomy in the same year he was diagnosed. After the surgery he was put on lucrin. His psa stayed 0.01 – 0.03 for two years.

His psa started to rise in the third year so he was put on casodex for about 4 years. When his psa went up to 14+ he was advised by his urologist to have an orchidectomy. His psa did not go down at all after the surgery, instead it went up to 22 then 35. We also found out that his PC has gone into his bone.

We consulted a few oncologists and decided to go for chemotherapy. Our father completed 6 cycle of chemo with doxitacel in December. His psa was 15 in December. Since he had pain in his lower back bone so 10 sessions of radiation were given to him in February. Sadly his psa shot up to 264 in February during radiation (we did not let our father know about the steep climb of his psa because he has been in a very positive spirit. We just don’t want him to lose faith in battling his cancer which we believe he will if he knows about his sharp rising psa.)

His oncologist suggested him to go for another round of chemo either with jevtana or zytiga, however we do not think that he is fit enough to take another hit from chemo drug so chemo is definitely not going to be considered at this point.

My father’s overall health condition and energy level deteriorate rapidly since January. He lost 6 kg in one month. He has no appetite, he has numbness in his feet, weakness in his legs, wet cough that seems worsen over the week, and he constantly has hyponatremia. We also learned that he has drug induced diabetes after chemo. We hope that our father will receive an effective alternative treatment from you after reading the information from your website. Please kindly advise that whether our father’s PC is still treatable and how high is the chance that he can be healed.

We are in Kota Bharu and we are ready to travel to Penang to see you anytime soon. Please let us know what should we do next from here.

Sincerely hope to hear from you soon. Thank you.

Reply:  Nobody can do anything …chemo / hormonal treatment had made the cancer more stubborn… this happened all the time. Now it goes to the bone …worse. To tell you that I can cure cancer is to cheat you but if you think I can help …maybe … I cannot promise.

Prostate Cancer – health deteriorating

Dear Prof Chris Teo,

I really feel there is a hope for my father after reading your posts on CA Care Therapy treatments. My father is diagnosed with prostate cancer about 2 months ago; PSA 61.1 and Gleason 5+3. We are now on the long waiting list for the bone scan (scheduled in April) and MRI scan (in June).

Before the doctors can offer him the treatment options, my father condition is now getting worse day by day. He has been suffering the following problems/symptoms:

1. Loss of appetite and weight – every food he takes is tasteless and he has to force himself swallow it (e.g. porridge).
2. He is unable to sleep even with the Prozovex pills – the moment he lays down he feels shortness of breath and mentally distorted.
3. Anaemia – Haemoglobin level was 7 previously. He did a blood transfusion the other day and it went up to 9. He seems better now.
4. Difficulty in breathing – likely due to fluid congestion in his lung, but after taking the medicine (Rasitol) to clear the fluid it was fine for few days.

He has been taking high blood pressure medication for the past 20 years which is his only underlying medical problem.

We live in Johor. I am planning to visit your Centre in Penang within these two weeks but I may not able to bring him there as I afraid he might not well enough for traveling long distance. We wish to give him a try on your herbs before we decide on whether to take or combine with those cancer treatments (which may cause more harm than good).

We do not aim to fully cure his cancer with the herbs (of course I wish there would be a miracle) and we are sincerely prepared to commit and work hard to fight against the disease. I really do hope it would at least reduce his pains and suffers so as to let him to have a better quality of life before he would leave us.

I am sincerely hoping for a good reply from you soon. Thank you and best wishes.

Reply: You come alone Monday to Friday at 11 a.m. next week. Bring all medical reports.

 

 

 

Prostate Cancer from Singapore: You decide your priority in life

Dear Dr Teo,

I have been searching all over the internet to help my father (he’s 65) who was recently diagnosed with stage 4 prostate cancer. It was a great shock because he has always been adopting a healthy lifestyle – exercising every morning, not smoking, small amounts of alcohol during celebrations etc. He is scheduled to undergo an operation next Wednesday to remove his testes in order to stop the testerone from feeding the cancer cells. He opted for the surgery instead of the hormone injections. He has also been sincerely practising the buddhist chant which I taught him.

He has great determination to overcome the disease. Thank God I chanced upon your site and I would definitely love to bring him over to Penang to see you. He has also been asking for Chinese medicine to help him after the operation and requested us to help him search for a good doctor. I believe your herb remedy would do him great!

Do you think it would be good to arrange an appointment with you as we are coming from Singapore. I understand from your site that we could come by on any day to see you. But as the journey could be too long for my dad, I would hope that he gets to see you the moment we land at the airport and get a cab to your place. Would the waiting time be usually long?  Do you open over weekends? I am sorry if I have missed information in your site. (I have been pretty stressed and depressed over my dad’s situation.)

I would think he should be able to travel two to three weeks after op, and that means sometime in January.

Reply: Two to three weeks after op, and that means sometime in January. Write me again when you have decided when you want to come …I only work one day at a time.

Dear Dr Teo,

I have written to you sometime in mid Dec last year. My father had undergone the bilateral orchiectomy on 17 Dec and he just got his latest PSA test result yesterday which dropped from 280+ to 14. He has also asked to go to Penang to see you.

I would like to check with you if it’s urgent to see you. I am a teacher and if you deem that he could wait till March 15 that week to see you, then I will bring him during the school holiday in March. However, if you feel that he should see you as soon as possible, I could also take leave to bring him sometime in the week 25 January.

We are unable to come to the decision of seeing you in 2 weeks time or in March as we do not know the severity of his condition or whether prolonging it will bring more harm. Thus, we need your good advice. The doctor at the hospital has no other alternatives for him.

Hope to hear from you soonest. Till then, be well!

Reply: You have to decide for yourself how important your problem is … people like to make things “very important” … I don’t do that … cancer has been  in him for years already … so what is the hurry ? Write me when you decide to come. That all depends on your priority in life.

Dear Dr Teo,

I have emailed you the following info at another email address.

Just an add on – the doctor advised my father to have the op and then to go back to the hospital for regular checking of his PSA. My father and I would think that your herbs would help him with his PSA after reading several feedback from relatives of similar patients. His current PSA is 260+.

Hope that he or I could see you very soon! Till then, be well!

Prostate Cancer from India

Dear Dr Chris,

Hope all is well!

My father, age 74, has been living with Prostate ca. He was first diagnosed in 2009 with PSA of 84. After reviewing all options we went in for Orchiectomy. After a month PSA came down to 1 and then in subsequent months was stable at .01 levels.

Last 6 to 9 months we have seen an increase and it started increasing to .05 to .71 to 1.14 level at the moment.

In this period the Dr increased the medicine and added a six monthly injection as well but we feel the trend has been upward.

I have spoken to the Dr and he has said that my father is ‘well preserved but will need  some amount of radiation therapy going forward’.

I have heard about you and your work and am highly impressed with u. My father does not feel any discomfort and has been living a normal life. I have also attached his latest MRI and SCAN reports with this.

We are based in Delhi, India and I understand that u prefer patients or relative to visit you in person. However I wanted to write this to you to see your response and then take this forward as to what and how you feel about this.

Thanks and Best regards.

Reply: There is nothing to say or feel about it ….You and your father have to decide what you want to do …… you go into my website and read what I wrote. Also there is a book that I wrote about Prostate Cancer….. http://bookoncancer.com/  I don’t think I need to add further. Regards,

 

Prostate Cancer from Sarawak

Hi Prof. Teo,

My name is L.  I’m emailing on behalf of my father who lives in Bintulu, Sarawak.  He had prostate cancer and another slow moving cancer as well.  He is a stroke survivor and he has diabetes and high blood pressure, just to give you an overview of his health condition.  He plays golf everyday now and can do everything he could do prior to his stroke two years ago. His urologist has suggested he do hormone therapy and radiation for his prostate cancer treatment, but my father REALLY doesn’t want to do that.  Instead, he asked me to help him find an alternative to chemical medical treatment.  And so I found you.

I found your website and I had my dad read through your site and he is 100% keen on coming to see you.  But he doesn’t really use email or know how to navigate the internet like I can… so that’s why I’m emailing you to help him make his first appointment to see you.

He would like to come to your center in Penang, but he will have to organize flights, accommodation ext coming from Sarawak… So please could you let me know how your bookings for your consultations work and on what day could he come see you and if he wanted to stay in Penang, could you inform me on what is a good amount of days you think he should stay in Penang to consult with you.  Once I have this information, we will book the flights to come and see you. Thank you,

Prostate problem from Singapore

Dear Dr Chris Teo,
My name is  from Singapore. I am 60 years old and has been following your website for a few years now because of my raised PSA reading. I started doing PSA testing as part of my annual health screening more than 5 years ago. My readings were initially below 4 ng/ml but started to be above 4 ng/ml about 4 years ago. It was steadily creeping up and in Apr 2011 when my reading was 5.2, I was referred to a urologist. He did an ultrasound of my prostrate and found out that my prostrate size was slightly small for my age and ruled out BPH. He also did a DRE but found no lumps or nodules that could indicate prostrate cancer. He prescribed antibiotics to test whether I had prostatitis.

After 4 weeks of antibiotics my repeat PSA test showed similar reading. He then recommended that I do a prostrate biopsy which I refused. From then on, I did regular PSA testing every few months and my readings kept slowly rising.

In Nov 13 my reading was 6.3. Six months later, I did my latest test  last week and the reading has gone up significantly to 56.6. All this while, I do not have any major symptoms of prostatitis or prostrate cancer like frequently wanting to urinate, blood in the urine, high fever and chill, pain in the pelvis etc. The only symptoms I am having is feeling of urgency to urinate and going to the bathroom to urinate 2 or 3 times at night. I was naturally alarmed and saw the same urologist again. He did another ultrasound and said that my prostrate size remains small. He proceeded to do a DRE and again did not discover any lumps or nodules.

As my PSA reading is very high now, he said that I must do a prostrate biopsy to determine whether there are cancer cells since I do not show symptoms of prostatitis. I am scheduled to do the biopsy next week on 20 May.

I would to seek your urgent advice on the following:
1. Should I do the prostrate biopsy. I read that biopsy has side effects and may result in the cancer cells if present leaking out to other organs?
2. Or should I skip the biopsy, assume that I may have prostrate cancer, and straight away start treating myself for prostrate cancer using your herbal remedy and do a repeat PSA after a month or so to see whether my PSA reading has come down?
If you could give me your contact no., I could give you a call to discuss my condition.
Dr Teo, I would really appreciate your urgent response to my email. Thank you in advance.

Reply: Just come and see me. No phone consultation please!
I just wonder why do people have to wait until 56.6 before doing anything? — oop, no, they do something – saw their doctors?
I wonder what do they expect when they want to come and see me?
Magic bullet to solve their problem? PSA tumbling down after a glass or two of herbs?

Rising PSA from Sydney

Dear Dr Chris,

Pray that you and family are in good health and always become blessings to the people.

My fatheris now living in Sydney, has been on the CA Care Herbs continuously since beginning of 2012 (as per my last email below): capsule A, prosta tea and mt guava tea, until now.

He is also on a vegan diet until now. The following shows typical of what he eats everyday:

1. Breakfast – black bean, green bean, red bean porridges with black chia seed and pumpkin seeds.

2. Morning tea – sometimes he eats 2 slices of bread with almond jam

3. Afternoon tea – fruits (apple, orange, kiwi, unripe banana, pear, strawberry, blueberry, avocado, dragon fruit, papaya, nectarine, peach, apricot)

3. Lunch & dinner – red or black rice with tofu/tempe/mushroom and vegetables
However, his PSA still keeps on rising every time. Since beginning 2013, he is checking his PSA at 3 months interval. The latest PSA June 2013 rose almost double from Mar 2013.

My father Daniel’s PSA readings are as follow:

05 Mar 2012 –     0.66

05 Apr 2012 –      0.71

21 May 2012 –     0.71

15 June 2012 –     0.72

16 August 2012 – 0.74

06 Nov 2012 –      1.1

05 Mar 2013 –      1.6

05 June 2013-      2.9

If you have forgotten, for your information, my father had a radical prostatectomy in 2007 because adenocarcinoma of prostate present with Gleason Score 4+4=8 with the portion of grade 4 carcinoma being 100% but no radiotherapy or chemo until now. Please find attached the Histopathology report immediately after the radical prostatectomy in 2007.

My father and we as a family do not want my dad to go through radiotherapy or chemo. We are grateful that his urologist has been quite respectful of my father’s decision to try taking herbal therapy instead of following his suggestion immediately for my dad to have radiotherapy since last year 2012.

On 21 June 2013, my dad had an MRI of Pelvis and Whole Body Diffusion. And on 09 July 2013, he also did Nuclear Whole Body Bone Scan. Please find attached both results.

On 27 June 2013, my father went to see his urologist for his regular 6 monthly check up. His urologist suggested my father to see the Radiation Oncologist to evaluate the benefit of starting on radiotherapy treatment or just wait and see if his PSA reaches 10 then to start hormonal therapy, as his PSA was now doubling in the last 3 months. Previously it was only creeping up slowly.

My dad has concerned for the fruits that he eats above which have encouraged the rise of his PSA. Please advise us what fruits that are not suitable for him.

My father and we as a family are confused now  what we should do, we advised you previously that my father do not want to have radiotherapy therefore he has been on CA Care Herbs from early 2012 until now, non stop and also he is a Vegan.

Kindly advise us in your opinion and from your experiences, what my father should do for this continuous rise in his PSA. He really does not want to go through radiotherapy or hormonal therapy.

We really appreciate your advice and assistance.

Yours Sincerely,

(Note: From our record, patients started herbs on 13 January 2012 and as of July 2013 it has been a total of 19 months BUT he only took herbs for a total of 9 months only. What happened to the remaining 10 months?). 

Prostate Cancer from Spain

Dear Chris,

I’ve been reading your web page and found it very helpful.

My husband has Prostate Cancer IV and is now going through chemotherapy.  He just had his first chemo last Friday 27th. April. His PSA was 4.6 when diagnosed October 2010.  Now it has risento 19 and bone scan shows it was hit by cancer, even the liver shows something little in doubt.   He has no pain and feels fine, thank God !

I’ve read all about alternative medicine in the book Outsmart your Cancer by Tanya Harper.   My husband does not trust this type of cures, I do.   My idea is to let him have the chemo but with alternative herbs at the same time, what do you think?   After 6 sessions of chemo, which he won’t be cure, we already know, only stop it, then he might like to try the complete treatment.

Please give me more information about your products and especially how it works with Advanced Prostate Cancer.  Also he possibility to have them in Alicante, Spain.

Sorry my English, I’m Peruvian and my husband Spanish.   Thank you very much, please help me.

Dear L, 

Thanks for your email. I am from Malaysia … far away from your country. I am sorry I cannot help people if they don’t come here and see me. Attached is my explanation. And I hope you can understand the problem I face. Also I cannot send herbs to Spain and I have never done that before. 

Dear Chris,
 
Thank you for your mail, it is my present from you on Mother’s Day.   I’ll keep the letter enclosed in my heart and maybe someday we will meet personally.   I have always had the idea of visiting the East and it is the best moment in my life to do it.  Although, I must convince my husband, he does not believe much in alternative medicine; but he loves me and love can do ALL. I trust God and you.
 
God bless you, your family and all the work you are doing.

Prostate Cancer – advice on radiotherapy? No make your own decision

Hi Chris.

Would appreciate your advice on radiotherapy … Would the herbs aid with radiotherapy … We are in two minds about radiotherapy although a few consultants suggest hormone therapy with radiotherapy would be the best treatment. What do you suggest? Many thanks for your all your help.

Reply:  You came. You bought my book on: Healing Prostate Cancer Naturally. Everything is in there. I have written enough! Make your own decision after reading the book. I have nothing to say.
