Let’s say that you have early prostate cancer (PCa) and you’ve been told by your oncologist that most men don’t die of early stage PCa. You don’t want to undergo treatment that is going to cause collateral damage but you don’t want to sit by and do nothing…
Consider evidence-based, non-toxic, anti-PCa therapies.
Red wine is a therapy that is part complimentary and part guilty pleasure. By “guilty pleasure” I mean that I am a long-term cancer survivor who believes that “food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.” I think Hippocrates said that. I try not to drink more than a couple of glasses of wine a week. But a glass of red wine? It compliments food wonderfully and contains polyphenols that fight cancer- a cancer survivor’s twofer.
While green tea is nutritious and anti- PCa I don’t think it tastes very good. To increase my daily intake of polyphenols I supplement with resveratrol and green tea extract. I also participate in many anti-cancer lifestyle therapies- from nutrition to daily moderate exercise to anti-oxidant supplementation.
I am both a long-term cancer survivor and cancer coach. To learn more about these therapies and your situation, scroll down the page, post a question or comment and I will reply ASAP.
“What researchers are certain about is this: the skin and seeds of grapes may have cancer-fighting properties. A big part of this cancer-fighting power comes from the antioxidant resveratrol. This natural plant chemical protects your cells from damage that could lead to cancer.
And, red wine is full of resveratrol because it’s made from grapes. But, researchers are still trying to confirm whether the resveratrol in red wine actually prevents cancer… “
“In what could lead to a major advance in the treatment of prostate cancer, scientists now know exactly why polyphenols in red wine and green tea inhibit cancer growth. This new discovery explains how antioxidants in red wine and green tea produce a combined effect to disrupt an important cell signaling pathway necessary for prostate cancer growth…
“Not only does SphK1/S1P signaling pathway play a role in prostate cancer, but it also plays a role in other cancers, such as colon cancer, breast cancer, and gastric cancers…”
