My Shining Beacon
It may seem odd that I, a man, should write that this book probably saved my life, but it's my very stong belief that this is the case.
In April 2005 I was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer, advanced, inoperable, and my prognosis was very bleak - perhaps 2 or 3 years to live. I had only just celebrated my 54th birthday two weeks earlier.
All I can say is thank heavens for the internet.
After leaving the hospital, still reeling from the shocking news, I sat at the computer and began to research the illness. I spent every waking hour delving through research papers and any new treatments that might possibly be available to me.
Within a few days I discovered the work of Prof. Jane Plant, and her theories on cancer shone out like a beacon in my darkness.
I'm not from any type of scientific background, but she writes about causes and prevention - and diet factors which can stimulate (or destroy) cancer cells, in such a clear, simple way, that I found it incredibly easy to follow the logic of it all.
I immediately ordered this book, read it thorougly, and made the most important decision of my life - I completely changed my diet, totally omitting any dairy produce, red meat, processed foods and harmful chemicals from my lifestyle.
I have waited over 3 years to write this review, because as a cancer sufferer you are filled with fears and doubts, such as "Were the doctors right? Will I not see 3 years?" - but I feel I must share with everyone the results of my lifestyle change.
I combined conventional hospital treatment (37 radiotherapy sessions and 30 months of hormone therapy) with strict adherence to Prof. Plant's diet recommendations.
My results have been spectacular. From a starting point in April 2005 of a T4 tumour and a very high PSA level of 182, I have now been free of any cancer medication for 9 months. Indeed, I was able to stop hormone therapy at 30 months rather than the planned 3 years.
My doctors are amazed that my PSA reading on 3rd June 2008 was a very low 0.9, while my testosterone levels are back to those of any normal, healthy male. An added bonus is the fact that I suffer no erectile dysfunction, and I went through all the radiotherapy with ease.
I am CERTAIN that following Prof Plant's program has brought me to this happy outcome. I know for sure that I will never waver from the path I've chosen, I don't miss dairy produce at all, and consider myself to be one very lucky guy. Thank you, Jane Plant!
