From the Author
As a prostate cancer patient I became very frustrated with the lack of and conflicting answers provided by the medical establishment. Urologists say that surgical removal is the only cure, yet their own studies show a 75% relapse rate in 10 years and the side effects rate of 50% or more for incontinence and impotence was not acceptable to me. Radiation didn't feel much better and the recurrence was said to be higher.
I began intensive research and found that on a global perspective most cultures do not have prostate problems. Prostate cancer is prevalent mainly in the more highly developed countries, with France being a notable exception.What has gone wrong for men in our Western Civilization? God did not create us with prostate problems, yet many men are told by their doctors to expect to have prostate problems sooner or later. There must be a reason. Why?
My research led me to the work of the great German Professor/Scientist Dr. Otto Warburg, who won his first Nobel Prize in 1931 for proving that cancer cannot live in cells that are in pH, oxygenation balance. This fact is widely recognized in the scientific community, but seemingly not in the day to day medical practice. I also learned that no disease can live in pH balanced, oxygenated cells. This is a fact throughout nature--farmers and gardeners know crops thrive when the pH of the soil is right and do very poorly when it is off.
When I discovered that the pH of my body was highly acidic--which is true for about ninety percent of us living in industrialized countries--I set off to find out what could be done to get my body in pH balance and restore my health.
Toxins from our food, water, air, parasites and dental work all contribute to making us acidic. I learned that the ancient process of fasting could release these toxins and after several tries that had varying success, I discovered a combination of tried-and-true fasting methods and cleansing products that allowed for a fast which was easy and fun and which brought me close to the cellular pH balance that is healthy.
To monitor my progress, I used a test called the Biological Terrain Assessment (BTA), which is from Europe, and is now becoming more available in the US. The BTA measures pH, Oxidation and Resistivity of the blood, saliva and urine, rounded to 2 decimal places. With this accurate feedback I was able to strengthen weak organs with homeopathics, monitor mercury detoxification and in 6 weeks I was finally near optimum. Numerous tests confirmed that I was cancer free. But I also had an added bonus...I was feeling better with more energy than I could remember, and healthier than I was prior to the cancer.
Thus I had found a path to a level of health far above that considered by day to day medicine. This was a level free of surprises such as the cancer that "struck me out of the blue" when I was billed by my doctors as being in outstanding health. "Surprises" are unnecessary and hardly good health management.
Men are being given such poor options within the context of conventional medical treatment that I felt I had to write this book to give men, who are open to receiving them, other, more natural, possibilities to consider for treatment and prevention.
