    Hi, Sonny --

    Welcome aboard. Some good advice here as I read through the thread. I'll add it my way just to give you lots of input to think about. First, nix all grains, all starchy vegetables, all sugars (even fruit). Cancer wants sugar. Cancer should not get it. Not even coconut palm sugar. It's still sugar. Then, I'd say, eat all the non-starchy vegetables you want (greens like kale especially) and all the grass-fed meats and omega three eggs and coconut oil and coconut milk you want. Most bacon has sugar too, so that's tricky. Omega 3 supplements are good. Wild caught salmon and mackerel, if you like fish. Grass fed chicken. I'd say no alcohol. But that's just what I'd do. Only throwing it out to give you options. Not sure if you drink coffee, but coconut milk seems to be liked by many here. I put coconut milk in rooibos and honeybush tea. Oh, did I say cut out dairy. Yes, it can be sugary in its effects and has other issues as well that don't do well with cancer. You can tweak lots of recipes on MDA and avoid all sugary stuff. I mean, just until you've gotten rid of the cancer. Then, a little fruit now and then could be an option. I wish you a fantastic journey and just bet you can lick that cancer. Soaked nuts are nutrient rich, but you said something about working on the fat, so... But certainly better than dairy and sugars for kicking cancer. A bit of fat might be secondary, yes?

      Jerrod Soldier says, Prostate problems cured with iodine:
      August 9, 2013 at 11:49 am
      "I suffered from enlarged prostate (diagnosed benign prostatic hypertrophy and prostatitis with PSA =10) with bleeding, obstruction of semen and urine, pain, urgency, frequency of urination etc (up to ten times per night) with symptoms increasing over a period of 30 years. Within one week of iodine intake (5mg tincture of iodine per day added to liquids) the bleeding and obstruction stopped, enabling me to have an external ejaculation which I hadn’t had in several years. Before that, ejaculations (with blood) had been internally obstructed until up to 12 hours later when the semen mixed with blood would leak out. The pain, urgency and frequency of urination is now reduced to near zero. My prostate feels much different now, almost as if it is anaesthetized when I urinate. I had had so much irritation for so many years when urinating, that it is peculiar now to not feel anything when I go. There is zero doubt that all of this improvement (which has continued for about 3 months now) is due to the iodine. I have switched to nutritional iodine 5-10 mg per day rather than tincture and the dramatic improvements remain. I have had no blood whatsoever, and no semen retention since that first week on iodine."

        Sonny, I've heard that the ketogenic diet is a good one to fight cancer. This is VERY low carb. Dr. Peter Attia has some great blogs about ketosis here The Eating Academy | Peter Attia, M.D. The Eating Academy | Peter Attia, M.D., do a search on "ketosis".

        And just FYI, Grizz recommends iodine to cure every ill. So do your research before you try anything!

            Goldie,
            Your opinion is greatly misinformed. Doctors research says you are very sadly mistaken:

            Give your negativism to the man that cured his prostate problems, msg #17 above. Go ahead. Post your rebuttal to him, you have his link. Also, all of my recommendations have multiple Doctor reports to back them up. I can inundate you with more Doctor reports from this file: http://tinyurl.com/Iodine-Reading



            In a most significant study called the Iodine Project, done from 1997 through 2005, Dr. Guy Abraham, Dr. David Brownstein, and Dr. Jorge Flechas followed 4,000 patients and administered 12.5 to 100 milligrams daily, with 100 milligrams administered to diabetics primarily, because low thyroid function is also associated with Type 2 diabetes. They had positive results with only three adverse reactions out of 4,000 people (possibly allergic reactions to the binding agents, excipients, fillers, preservatives and/or synthetics commonly found in tablets, capsules and even liquids as opposed to the bioavailable form of iodine itself). This research group theorized that because in Japan the average intake was 13.8 milligrams, and Japan had significantly less breast and prostate cancer and better health and longevity than in the US, that higher doses of iodine could be safely used. In this 7-year study, they observed reversed fibrocystic breast disease, decreased insulin requirements in diabetics, significantly less need for medication for hypothyroidism, resolution for fibromyalgia, and also resolution of migraine headaches. In the study by Dr. Abraham, et al, the iodine ranges were somewhere between 12.5 and 100 milligrams (100,000 micrograms) daily and were considered safe dosages. This is exponentially greater than Dr. Mercola’s recommendation.

            From a larger physiological perspective, it is important to realize that the thyroid is only one gland of many glands and tissues that needs iodine. Other glands/organs/systems with high iodine uptake are the breasts, ovaries, cervix, blood, lymph, bones, gastric mucosal, salivary, adrenal, prostate, colon, thymus, lungs, bladder, kidney, and skin. In perspective, the thyroid holds 50 milligrams of iodine, the breasts hold 200 milligrams, the skin holds 400 milligrams of iodine, and the whole body holds 2000 milligrams, and possibly much more. Iodine is found and used in every hormonal receptor in the body.

            In a study of 60 cancer patients given an iodine test, all were found to be seriously deficient in bodily stores of iodine and many had excessive bromine. Women with iodine deficiency have been found to have three times greater incidence of breast cancer. High intake of iodine is associated with a lower risk of breast cancer. In the treatment of prostate and breast cancer, it is reported in Dr. Sircus’ book that Dr. Brownstein uses between 200 and 300 milligrams of iodine daily, with higher doses for more serious and difficult diseases. In perspective, this seemingly “high” dose is still far lower than what the 11th edition of the 1910-1911 Encyclopedia Britannica cites as the “usual” doses of 300-900 milligrams (300,000 to 900,000 micrograms!) of iodine daily.

            From a larger physiological perspective, it is important to realize that the thyroid is only one gland of many glands and tissues that needs iodine. Other glands/organs/systems with high iodine uptake are the breasts, ovaries, cervix, blood, lymph, bones, gastric mucosal, salivary, adrenal, prostate, colon, thymus, lungs, bladder, kidney, and skin.

            DR. COUSENS' BLOG - Iodine

            Dr. Beaulieu
            Iodine/iodide is one of the primary preventive minerals in the prevention of breast, ovary, uterine, and prostate cancers as well as BPH. Adequate iodine/iodide in the diet, or by supplementation, will occupy the estrogen receptor sites on these estrogen sensitive tissues and not only reduce risk, but often completely reverse the inflammation resulting in the swelling and tenderness so often referred to as fibrocystic disease. Not only is our Standard American Diet (SAD, an appropriate acronym) deficient in iodine/iodide, chlorination and fluoridation of the drinking water further guarantees a population with an iodine/iodide deficiency. I have covered the simple high school chemistry explanation behind this phenomena in other newsletters.

            And lastly testimonials of real people reporting their real problems are for more valuable than your misinformed negativism opinion.

                  Hi Sonny--
                  I'm sorry to hear about your cancer. I lost my dear brother to aggressive prostate cancer in 2006 at 53 yo--he had been a process-food-sugar-eating-grain-scarfing-vegetarian for decades. I wish I (and he!) had known about paleo and primal eating. This lifestyle will help support your body as you continue this fight.
                  Good luck and keep us posted!

                      Goldie,

                      Sorry but you are MISTAKEN again. There are only a limited number of health problems that are cured by iodine, and I have never said that iodine cures all ills. Show me a link where I said that. You can't because I have never said that.

                      The limited number of health problems cured by iodine are those caused by severe iodine deficiency:

                      * Thyroid problems
                      * Fibrocystic Breast Disease
                      * Cysts in the ovaries similar to PCOS
                      * Cysts, fibroids in the Uterus
                      * Brain Fog
                      * Headaches
                      * Prostate problems
                      * Dry Skin, dry eyes
                      * Nasal infections
                      * Related cancers but not ALL cancers, only those related to severe iodine deficiency as proven by the links I posted.

                      http://tinyurl.com/Iodine-Deficiency


                      There are more minor iodine deficiency problems, listed here with links:
                      https://docs.google.com/document/d/1...h.rstuztjjjw17

                      Please verify each link for yourself to see that the information is accurate.

                      So do not ever put words in my mouth. Everything I say has multiple doctors & many links to back me up. I also have documented proof of everything I say. See this file, organized by subject:
                      http://tinyurl.com/Iodine-Reading

                      Let me re-iterate: Iodine does NOT cure every ill. It only cures symptoms caused by iodine deficiency.

                        Anecdotes are not evidence because of a thing called spontaneous remission - sometimes people just get better. Without controls, there is no way to be sure if it's because of the treatment or not. However some effects and applications of iodine are known and have been (and are still being) investigated.

                            Amazing Testimonial about SEVERE Prostate Problems cured with iodine:
                            I've had all the usual extreme prostate symptoms for many years (I'm 59) and have had a diagnosis of BPH (enlargement) and prostatitis from age 35. In the last 5 years things started getting worse: blood in my semen and urine, blood leaking out up to 12 hours after sex, dry ejaculation: no semen released until hours after orgasm when it would leak out, testicle pain off and on, knife-like pain radiating into my penis for a split second, then about a second or two later it hits again, this can go on for several minutes, painful ejaculation (every time), urgency and frequency causing me to get up as often as 10 times in the night to piss (usually 3 or 4 times) despite fluid restriction. Intolerance to caffeine and alcohol - I've given them both up. I have tried all the herbal remedies, pomegranate, curcumin, lycopene, selenium, vitamins, minerals etc and nothing has worked. I could not tolerate palmetto due to headaches. I've spent many hundreds of dollars on avodart and flomax. I've had a prostate biopsy to rule out cancer because my PSA was 10 and a cystoscopy that showed the enlargement. The avodart lowered the PSA to 5 but the symptoms didn't improve very much. I had to stop the avodart because of back pain, stomach pain (acid), foot and hand pain and general weakness. I tried starting up again several times and the upper-mid back pain always comes back within a day. I've had about 5 very painful episodes of urinary retention and blockage. Recently the pain on the always-dry ejaculation had got so bad and the after-effects so nasty: very frequent painful urination, i.e. every 10 minutes for a few hours, and the leaking of blood and semen that I have started abstaining from sex and decided that I might have to give up sex forever.

                            In my job I research medical topics for doctors and have access to very old medical journals (from the 1800s to the present). I found some very old references to the use of iodine in BPH. When I searched the internet I found a few guys (google prostate Grizz) had had amazing success with it, so I thought, I've tried everything else, why not give it a try. I looked into the history of iodine use and it was used for many conditions for at least 130 years and was considered the most important medicine a doctor could use (for many conditions). I didn't think it could be that dangerous considering the number of years it was used though I am aware modern doctors have been taught it's deadly. (It's actually a critically essential mineral but you can easily overdose.)

                            I took 5 drops of 5 % tincture of iodine (containing iodine and potassium iodide) in a glass of water every morning. Do not take it at night because it is a stimulant. Read the warning below before you try this. 5 drops of 5% tincture is very roughly 25 mg (or 25,000 micrograms) of iodine which is a huge dose in medical terms, however hikers use roughly the same dose to sterilize a litre of pond water to drink without ill effects at least for short periods of time. I believe it is too large a dose to use for more than a few weeks without taking a big risk. If you have thyroid trouble even one dose might be too much. I also painted my balls with the pure tincture mixed with olive oil (as suggested on the internet) because it is absorbed through the skin and that is close to the prostate. That was a mistake because it burnt the skin after 2 days and it peeled off like a sunburn. I switched to iodine sold for supplement use in a glycerine base and that was very messy and delivered a much lower dose of iodine to my balls/prostate. The very first night after using the tincture on my balls everytime I awoke to piss, I had an erection (that hasn't happened for about 40 years during the night). I did not have any problems with erections before. The erections have continued almost every time I get up in the night now.

                            I stopped painting after a week as it was messy. After less than a week - I think it was about 4 or 5 days of the oral doses and ball painting, I decided to masturbate. I couldn't believe the result. I shot semen 10 inches or so with no pain, no blood, no leaking afterward, no frequent urge to piss etc. I hadn't had a wet orgasm in the daytime in about 5 years. My prostate feels much much better, I don't get the pain when urinating and the stream is stronger. I'm only getting up once or twice a night to piss. I can go for hours when I'm out and hold my bladder if I need to, without pain. I have only been taking the oral iodine for 3 weeks. All the symptoms improved after less than a week.

                            WARNING: As this is a very high dose and could damage my thyroid, I plan to drop down to the daily recommended dose of 150 micrograms soon and I hope that the lower dose will continue to work. The risk of overdosing with iodine is very high so I do not recommend anyone do what I did without doctor's supervision - you literally could die in what is called a thyrotoxic storm or you could permanently damage your thyroid requiring radioactive iodine to kill your thyroid and then thyroid medication for the rest of your life. There are some doctors out there who are promoting iodine such as Dr. Flechas, Abraham and Brownstein for many conditions including breast cancer and have written books and papers on it. The latest conventional medicine paper I've seen (2012) showed that at a dose of only 400 micrograms per day (about 1/50th of what I'm taking), in people with normal thyroid function, 5 % developed subclinical hypothyroidism after only a few weeks. Most subjects returned to normal after stopping the iodine. It is not clear what the effect would be in iodine deficient people or people with hyper or hypothyroidism. The paper is free online here: Home - PubMed - NCBI... You could try a safer lower dose of iodine at 150 - 400 micrograms (mcg) per day. It might take longer to work of course, or it might not work at all. Also, the larger dose that I took might not work at all either. Your mileage may vary.

                            Conclusion: I am a very happy man. I'm sorry for all the men out there who've received the same advice and treatment as I have and are suffering terribly, because modern medicine abandons it's own history and so doctors today and their patients will not know about this possible treatment. Interesting question: could iodine help prevent or treat prostate cancer? The Japanese consume much larger amounts of iodine than North Americans (around 12 mg per day - a very large dose) and breast and prostate cancer are much much lower in Japan. Another question: Could iodine be a substitute for viagra? My experience would suggest that possibility.
