Conventional Treatments

Treatment of prostate cancer is determined by the stage of the cancer. The current accepted medical treatments for cancer involve directly killing the cells that display such unregulated growth.  In addition to surgery, chemotherapy and radiation are the only two accepted forms of cytotoxic therapy.  However, three very important questions come to mind when considering these treatment modalities.  1.) Do they really address the cause of the cancer? 2.) Do they risk causing too much "collateral damage" to the patient? 3.) How effective are they at preventing a recurrence of the disease? 

When used judiciously, surgery, chemotherapy and radiation may have important roles to play in controlling the progression of cancer, but at best they represent a delaying tactic.


Radical Prostatectomy
If the radiation is limited to the prostate, radical prostatectomy (the removal of the entire prostate gland and the accompanying seminal vesicles. In this surgical procedure the prostate is removed and a catheter is inserted to drain urine, blood, and tissue out of the bladder. If a patient is too old or too ill to undergo this surgery a catheter will be inserted on a permanent basis.  The main disadvantage of surgery is that it requires a lot of recovery time (at least four weeks).  During your recovery, you may have some temporary problems with incontinence.  And if you don't have nerve-sparing surgery, you'll be permanently impotent. Other risks include urinary incontinence, significant blood loss that requires a transfusion, pain from surgery, blood clots in legs, lymphoceles in the pelvis, infection in the incision or pelvis, nerve damage from lying on the table in the wrong position, swelling in legs from the removal of the lymph nodes, injury to the rectum or ureters, and so on.

TURP (Trans-urethral resection of the prostate)
In the surgical procedure TURP (Trans-urethral resection of the prostate) the doctor removes a part of the prostate. This procedure often makes the problem worse and has a high death rate. TURP may also cause sterility, impotence, and incontinence.

Cryosurgery (which is also known as cryotherapy or cryoablation) refers to the procedure in which cancer cells are frozen.  Some of the primary disadvantages include tissues surrounding the prostate being damaged.  If healthy tissue is damaged, significant side effects such as urethral burning, incontinence, and rectal problems can occur.  Another disadvantage involves the nerve bundles that control erections often unavoidably get frozen during the procedure, which can lead to impotence.

Radiation Therapy
Radiation therapy can be performed externally with, with external beam radiation therapy (EBRT), or internally, with brachytherapy (a procedure where radioactive seeds are either permanently or temporarily inserted into the prostate.  A major disadvantage of radiation is that it may cause impotence and urinary incontinence.  The buildup of scar tissue can cause impotence for a year (or more) after treatment.  Radiation can also cause other problems with the bladder and rectum.  Other side effects include hair loss, weakness and tiredness.

Hormone Therapy
Hormone therapy involves administering hormones to suppress natural testoterone (a male hormone).  Common side effects include hot flashes, irritability and mood swings, lowered sex drive, weight gain and redistribution, loss of muscle mass, osteoporosis, and depression.

Anti-cancer drugs that are give (either orally, intravenously, or by injection) to attach the cancer cells.  The primary disadvantage of chemotherapy is the side effects, which may be sever. Side effects can include nausea and vomiting, loss of appetite, weight loss, hair loss, and extreme fatigue.

Conventional treatment focuses exclusively on destroying the cancerous cells, but in so doing it fails to address the underlying anabolic imbalance that set the stage for the development of the cancerous condition in the first place.

Prevention is far better than attempting a cure, but if you already have a prostate condition, there is still a great deal you can do.   In addition to lifestyle changes including diet & exercise, Nutrition 2000 has developed a Protocol that incorporated vitamins, minerals, herbs and supplements to manage and help reverse the cancer cycle.  If you are serious about taking an active approach and would like to learn more, please submit the following information and a Consultant will contact you within 24-48 hours.
