A long-time, very good friend of mine has major prostate problems. A year ago, his PSA level was 7 – a biopsy was made, but without findings. A few weeks ago the PSA value was 10.5. A biopsy was made again and now cancer cells have been found. The doctor recommends surgery. Even with PSA 7 my friend received no medication. What would you advise?
I have suggested at least a second opinion and to have a complete blood test (which has not been made).
Dr. Thomas Rau’s response:
The short answer first: Never operate immediately! If an operation is desired, then prepare very well for it.
First, a general comment: Cancer should not be viewed mechanistically, believing that the removal of malignant tissue is the primary therapy. No, it’s like a peach which starts to go moldy or rotten: it is of absolutely no benefit to remove a “rotten spot”; tomorrow another place will be infected, or the whole peach.
Especially with the prostate, many small cancer foci are extant – and should such small sources behave maliciously, then they create an offshoot somewhere very early on, very often even before one finds any indication of prostate cancer. That is the reason why an operation does not improve the overall prognosis, only a systemic treatment of the whole person can do that. Urologists, unfortunately, see the situation much too narrowly and mechanistically.
Routine biopsies in healthy individuals or postmortem autopsies have shown that at 60 years of age already more than 50% of men have small cancer foci in the prostate – and at 80 years of age more than 80% of all men. Yet these are very minimally aggressive and in most cases barely grow. Men do not die from them.
Prostate cancer should only be operated when the tissue leads to problems when urinating, e.g. mechanically hinders the outlet. To perform only a biopsy is downright negligent; that is absolutely insufficient as an indication for surgery! One should assess the hormone status; furthermore, there is the differentiation between free PSA and total PSA. And, as a more refined test as to whether the cancer tissue are behaving maliciously or not, there is urinary testing of the PCA (pancreas cancer antigen). We also perform a test for circulating cancer cells (the test is called “Maintrac”) – which indicates whether the cancer has spread to the blood – in that case it would be doubly foolish to operate.
Ultrasound is the investigative method of choice.
This patient experienced an increase of PSA from 7.0 to 10.5 in a year. The hormonal status of the man and of the size of the prostate are also factors influencing PSA. The size must be ascertained using a volumetric size determination with ultrasound. Ultrasonics is in any case the current investigative method of choice, not biopsy! Biopsies are more and more often discouraged, as they often lead to false negative findings and they can contribute to the spread of cancer cells through the invasive mechanical process!
At the Paracelsus Clinic we have an ultrasound device that has a very high resolution, thanks to which one can usually detect cancer foci via their different density. We can even perform a Doppler ultrasound, which ascertains the blood flow rate of the cancer foci in question: the more a cancer is supplied with blood, the more malignant it is.
Conventional prostate medical doctors can ascertain with ultrasound whether or not the condensed fibromuscular band (“capsule”) is broken. This cannot be determined with a biopsy.
In the presence of a cancer one must always search for the causes, and that was not done in this case a year ago – and apparently not now either. This stems from the misconception of conventional medicine that there are no known causes. That is decidedly not true: There are many partial causes which in their interaction can give rise to cancer cells. If one does not remove these partial causes, then the cancer is much more likely to return after surgery: New cancer cells will develop – whether in the prostate or also in other organs.
The biggest mistake that is made by orthodox cancer therapy, from a holistic perspective, is that it only intervenes against the cancer and not against its causes.
Possible causes for the development of prostate cancer cells:
- Hormonal changes: predominance of xenohormones, hormone-like metabolic products from the metabolism. One can measure this: SHBG (sex hormone binding globulin) and xenohormones in urine and blood. Since precisely hormones have a large influence in the emergence of prostate cancer, advanced urologists offer anti-hormone therapies for prostate cancer. These are far more effective than surgery!
- Heavy metals: mercury, cadmium, lead and others are carcinogenic. They can be measured in the patient. We, therefore, always perform a heavy metal urine test following DMPS stimulation of excretion for all prostate cancer patients.
- Carcinogenic bacteria: Clostridium in the bowels – or propionibacteria from dental foci – is highly carcinogenic! We, therefore, always perform a clarification on dental foci, heavy metals and pathogenic intestinal bacteria for prostate cancer patients.
- Lack of the body’s anti-cancer capacity: each person develops cancer cells continuously, but he/she fights them off and eliminates them: a function of macrophages and the “natural killer cells” (NK cells, which are very specific immune cells in a healthy body). They can be detected in the blood or at our clinic with a dark field microscope. And there are genes tests ascertaining the body’s ability to excrete carcinogens (antioxidative capacity and detox capacity). We perform these tests at our clinic.
- Malnutrition: Generally acidic and sugary foods favor cancer. In addition, very often hidden food allergies are a cancer-predisposing factor. Food allergies distract the immune system – and the NK cells are then active in the bowels instead of working against the cancer cells.
- All of these factors are addressed and clarified very specifically – in many cases this alone brings the prostate cancer to a stop.
A case with treatment description:
A 56 year old man was diagnosed with prostate cancer: 60% of his prostate, which was enlarged to about twice its usual size, were cancerous nodules, with infiltration of the capsule. An ultrasonic testing at the world famous “Maestro” of prostate ultrasound, Dr. Bard in Manhattan, showed that the cancerous tissue was vascularized to 0%, i.e. highly malignant! The biopsy done before the initial consultation with me showed a “Gleason score of 8-9”; thus also histologically very malignant.
The patient underwent no surgery and no radiation or hormone therapy, only our very strict biological cancer and milieu therapy, but rigorously and over a long period. The therapy is described below.
Today, approx. ten years later, the patient has said: “The cancer saved me, I feel considerably better today; the change of diet, the constant intake of immune stimulating agents and the few therapies that I still undergo have clearly made my whole body healthier – in its entirety!”
He has a normal sex life, normal bladder function, not the least pain. His PSA, which was also very high, is now in the normal range of around 3-4. The ultrasound examination still shows the nodes, but with 5% vascularization he barely has circulation: the cancer is, so to speak, “quiet” and has become a scar knot!
Conclusion: Cancer is a dynamic process – when the causes that have caused the cancer are removed and the immune system has been strengthened, the cancer then changes its behavior and becomes “quiet”.
The treatment of prostate cancer:
Biological cancer therapy is always very individualized and tailored to the causes that we have found:
- Metabolic conversion through base therapies, vitamins and dietary changes
- Initially, “cancer infusions” with high doses of biological medicines, such as vitamins C, B, co-enzyme Q10, curcumin, specific fungal substances
- Strict detox and, if necessary, dental treatment to remove the malignant sources
- Initially, very localized neural injections on the outer prostate capsule with the Paracelsus anti-hormone substances
- Local hyperthermia therapies: cancer cells cannot endure heat and shortwaves, but hyperthermia to 42°C has no effect on healthy cells. Thus, isolated cancer cells can be killed or weakened, with no side effects and damage to healthy tissue. The Paracelsus Clinic is the most modernly equipped clinic for this therapy; we deploy the very expensive equipment for localized shortwave hyperthermia (Oncotherm) and the INDIBA hyperthermia device based on capacitive electron charging.
- Peroral therapy with “Dr. Rau’s prostate drops”, which have an antioxidant and anti-hormonal effect and usually reduce the PSA very quickly.
- For home use we offer a very individual therapy with drops and capsules, all of which are organic.
We advise the patient to first undergo a careful examination in our clinic – and then, if possible for him – to undergo an intensive clinic treatment for one week; for advanced cancers from two to three weeks.
Afterwards long term therapy follows, but at home. Check-ups every 1-2 months initially, but soon extended to every three months.
My, my, my, this all seems so complicated!! Why not simply operate, and then “the cancer is gone”!? – is a question often heard.
The answer is simple: because the cancer hasn´t simply gone away, and because the prostate surgery often results in massive side effects: Impotence/urinating disorders, strictures, pain in over 30% of cases. And then yet another reason: Under our treatment the body is regenerated and you will also feel a whole lot better.
So you’re wondering: yes, and does it really work? Yes, we undertook a study many years ago on 250 of our prostate cancer patients who had undergone at least four years of treatment with us: 95% of men were 90- 100% satisfied with the long-term result, had no chemotherapy, no surgery and did not have to undergo radiation.
Prostate cancer is definitely a form of cancer that should be treated with intensive biological medicine! We would be pleased if you register the patient with us that we may treat him very individually.
