Update from Don on the healing from Prostate Cancer

Below, is the latest graph from Don, I just received yesterday.

As a reminder, Don is only using diet to reduce his prostate cancer marker (PSA). No drug is being used. The result are great, indicating that diet is at least important, if not essential, when fighting cancer. Just have a look at this:

    1. Yes Carl, I remember Don and I were discussing exactly this point when he decided to stop Ketogenic Diet. While I strongly believe that fats are really bad for hormonal cancers, there may something more (and important) to the benefits of the plant based diet, relevant to all cancers. I intend to write a post on that asap.

  1. Hi Daniel and Don,
    Thank you for providing an update, Don it is wonderful to hear you are doing so well. Naturally, I am following this thread with great interest. We are using a similar diet, lots of juicing, supplements and other measures. My husband discontinued Zytiga (and the accompanying prednisone and Xgiva) 3 months ago and has received his oncologist consent to discontinue Lupron as well. The oncologist views it as taking a break. We view it as seeing if we can hold the cancer at bay with other methods including many discussed on Daniels site and using ADT as a fallback. PSA is currently <0.006.

  2. Don, I think I understand now why you did not have consistent responses to 3-BP.

    Figure 4 shows that only of 24 prostate cancer patient with a C11 acetate positive scan only 1 had a PSA level below 3 ng/mL.
    C11 acetate PETscans are now being widely investigated in prostate cancer. What is of particular interest is that acetate –> acetic acid which is a monocarboxylate. It is thought to enter cancer cells through MCT-1. This type of PETscan might be helpful in determining which cancer patients would respond to 3-BP. A plausible explanation of why there is a lower bound to which C11 and 3-BP are effective is that a tumor might need to be of a certain minimum threshold size to generate enough acid to their encourage uptake. This would seem to be in line with your experience as you did have some knockdowns with 3-BP though as it feel below about 3 ng/mL it no longer seemed to be effective.


    A I am sure that all on the forum would welecome an update on how you are now doing,
    Best Wishes, Jcancom

  3. Hi All,

    Below is an excerpt from Dr. George Yu website pertaining to calorie restriction (CR) and cancer with some interesting statistics on response rate. It seems consistent with individuals who report ongoing response from Gerson and other similar therapies and those who have initial response, but it is not sustained. Overall, it is a statement on the powerful impact of diet on cancer.

    “There are institutions worldwide that practice CR with members eating a variety of foods from raw vegetable food, cooked vegetable-based foods with minimal animal protein (fish, eggs) and use simple and easily digestible foods with the aids of probiotics and digestive enzymes for efficient food breakdown and digestion. All the practices have a common feature- the total calories consumed per day is around 1500 to 1800 calories. These institutions have an average of 1000 new visitors yearly and the guests stay for 3-5 weeks to accustom themselves to the diet and learn food preparations upon departure. I have been privileged to perform audits on some of the organizations and have witnessed their practices and outcomes.”

    “What Did We Learn from monitoring Calorie Restriction cancer patients in 13 years. CRON + Moderate Ketosis
    • All groups practice a form of CRON “Caloric Restriction Optimal Nutrition” limiting total intake of 1500- 1800 calories per day but the food was nutritionally dense and free from sugars, no fruits and diaries. Fruits have a special consideration because of its high Fructose content. The data from the administrators of these institutions and my own corroboration in past 13 years show that approximately 1/3 of the cases have impressive regression of cancers and some go into complete remission but 2/3 of them will improve both from objective studies (CAT scans + blood markers), physical examination and symptoms relief but later, developed a recurrence. At that point using CR diet will not stop progression of cancers.
    • The CAT scans uniformly showed shrinkage of tumors within 3-6 months while the “visceral defatting” (intra-abdominal visceral fat or “Apple Belly”) all shrunk completely.
    • The patients lost 10% of their body weight
    • Blood sugars 70 to 85 mg/dl and ketones are present in their urine. Some patients examined have blood ketones up to 5 mmol.
    • Blood Insulin levels is between 5- 8 micro international units/ml
    • Hemoglobin A1C is 5 to 5.5%
    • The PET scans, using a glucose analogue 18F-flouro-2deoxyD glucose (FDG) showed improvement with less cancer uptake of sugar after going on a CRON diet.
    • Cancer recurrence will occur if they return to an unrestricted diet and will also regress if resuming a strict CR diet.
    • CR has negative effects such as bone and muscle loss and hormone dysregulations on long term use. We cycle CRON as Short Term CR as noted above.”

    “As noted above, the majority or 2/3 of patients on Caloric Restriction will first respond and later progress”, but lasting results fo 1/3 is impressive!

  4. Thanks for sharing this, Shanti!

    Daniel, based on so much scientific and anecdotal evidence, wouldn’t it be a good idea to include Diet in the Top treatments section?

    Best Regards,
