This forum is for the discussion of anything to do with Prostate Cancer. There are only four rules:
No fundraisers, no commercials (although it is OK to recommend choices of treatment or medical people based on your personal research; invitations to participate in third-party surveys are also acceptable, provided there is no compensation to YANA);
No harvesting e-mail addresses for Spam;
No insults or flaming - be polite and respectful at all times and understand that there may be a variety of points of view, all of which may have some validity;
Opinions are OK, but please provide as much factual evidence as possible for any assertions that you are making
Failure to abide by these simple rules will result in the immediate and permanent suspension of your posting privileges.

A lot of people think Dr. Snuffy Meyers is worth taking advice from.
He thinks these things are worth taking
Fish Oil - high quality capsules
Actual science and knowledgeable doctors.
A few other supplements he recommends are in the document that can be
purchased - see below
He thinks these may be bad for you
Flax seed oil
19 out of 20 new supplements that haven't been thoroughly tested are at
More information is available for $9 - I thought it worth the cost.

I have no affiliation with Dr. Meyers. I just heard about him on this forum. Maybe someone with more knowledge can chime in.
I have been a patient of Dr. Myers for the last two years. I have documented my entire Pca history in an on-going online journal. Anyone interested in how Dr. Myers has approached one man's experience with recurrent cancer is welcome to have a look at http://protondon.blogspot.com
My last eleven entries are devoted to this topic.

I have taken these supplements and others, while adhering to a macrobiotic diet and persuing a vigorous Yoga practice for more than 7 years following diag PCa. Here is my history:
12/07 Age 57 - Diag PCa - PSA 3.2 - Bio 2/8 GS 6(3+3) - T1C
1/08 chg MD - begin WW - Macrobiotic Vegan - BMI 26.1
9/08 PSA 1.7 - T1C - BMI 19.1
3/09 MRI - Inconclusive
6/09 PSA 1.8 - T1C - Bio 2/10 GS 6(3+3) - BMI 19.5
10/11 PSA 3.6 - T1C - Bio 3/9 GS 6(3+3)
3/15 PSA 4.9 - T1C - Bio 3/8 GS 7(3+4)
5/15 Age 65 - Rad Prost - GS 7(3+4) - No Lymph - Pos Marg 2mm
So, I belive that supplements, diet and Yoga have all been beneficial, but genetics has trumped, and I was finally driven to treatment. I am experiencing a quick recovery from surgery, attributed by MD and some others to my lean physique and pre surgical conditioning. Jury out for the next couple of months with reference to the very small margin involvement. I was first introduced to the possibility of diet and supplementation by Roger Mason www.youngagain.org. His book Zen Macrobiotics makes a lot of good points. I continue with a careful diet today and am drawn to continue certain supplements.
