If you, or someone you care about, has been diagnosed with prostate cancer don’t panic. I know you probably feel desperate to find an effective prostate cancer treatment. But take a deep breath and keep reading.
The vast majority of prostate cancer cases aren’t life threatening.
That’s not just something some docs say to calm you down. It’s a fact.
The trouble is the word cancer, naturally, causes people to panic. And that means, despite the fact that it’s ill advised, many men enter jump feet first into harsh prostate cancer treatments aimed at annihilating tumors by slicing, burning or poisoning them out of existence.
But radiation, surgery and chemo can come with terrible—often emasculating—side effects. That’s why I typically advise my own patients to work with me on a watch and ACTIVELY wait approach that includes safe natural treatments such as natural anti-inflammatories quercetin and curcumin.
But if you’re like a lot of guys (or your loved one is) sitting around and feeling like you’re not doing enough just isn’t in your DNA. I get it, I’m part of your tribe.
Novel prostate cancer treatment shrunk tumors in 89%
That’s why I was so excited to read about a new breakthrough treatment that will give guys who are seeking a prostate cancer treatment that doesn’t come with all the sickening side effects of the risky mainstream approach an option.
This new, FDA-approved, non-invasive treatment uses sound waves to shrink tumors. And, according to researchers, it’s impressively effective.
An incredible 89 percent of the guys who received the High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) prostate cancer treatment saw a significant drop in their tumor size, according to the study published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology.
In fact 93 percent of the men ended up NEVER having to submit to the slash and burn conventional medicine treatments!
HIFUs got a track record behind it too. U.S. doctors have been using it to treat uterine fibroids for quite some time now. And overseas medical professionals have already been using it as a prostate cancer treatment for years.
Unlike mainstream medicine treatments that mow down everything in their path… healthy tissue included…HIFU pinpoints the tumor alone, heating and killing the cancerous cells while leaving healthy surrounding tissues intact.
If you’d like to get a better idea of how HIFU works, take a look at this brief 3D animation.
Slashes side effects & doesn’t damage healthy tissues
That means that potential side effects are much less devastating too. For example the 20 percent chance of incontinence… urine leakage… that men have with conventional treatments drops to under 2 percent with HIFU.
Even more impressive, the risk of being unable to have an erection—erectile dysfunction—plummets from a frightening 50 percent with mainstream treatments to 15 percent with HIFU. And of course without sickening chemo and radiation, guys kept all of their hair and didn’t feel like they were going to lose the saltine crackers they choked down for lunch.
If you can’t bring yourself to simply watch and actively wait alone, HIFU could be the prostate cancer treatment for you.
HIFU is available internationally, but isn’t as widely available here in the United States yet. But with this new study I do expect that will start to change rapidly, so if you don’t feel like taking a medical vacation abroad check with your doctor about availability in your area.
