For many, many years I have been helping men including myself overcome prostate cancer. Contrary to what most people have been coached and coerced to believe, (before GOD Almighty I tell you), "Prostate cancer can be controlled very well, even with a higher gleason of 8-9-10 and even if the cancerous cells have become hormonal independent and without surgery, radiation/seeds, proton, chemo and yes, but not least, hifu."
I have test results and the testimonies of numerous men over many years of time that proves and backs up this very bold statement. Test performed by the "medical system's" very own labs. Men whom have had one or more of the above treatments contact me on a daily basis. Within 17-36 months of the conventional treatments, the cancer comes back in over 90% of these men. This is very sad to report because, in reality, the cancerous cells never went away in the first place. The cancer was running in the bloodstream all this time.
Now the allopathic medical community will argue against this with their mounds of so called "studies". However, I would argue that if the cancer was not in the bloodstream all this time, why is the cancer back in a majority of men in such a short time? The very idea that removing tissue from the body, baking/burning, injecting/placing some seeds or injecting the prostate with some salt solution could or would eradicate prostate cancer is as barbaric a concept as starting a fire with a stick and a rock. Guess what? The stick and the rock are very, very profitable.
I want to make a statement that most of you reading this will find almost unbelievable: Prostate cancer growth can be stopped in over 98% of all men within 30 days.Yes, cancer growth can be stopped and retarded in 30 days.
Regardless of whether you have had any of the prior medical treatments or you have elected to watch and wait.
I want to make one thing clear; I AM NOT ADVOCATING AN ABSOLUTE CURE HERE but management. As I said, stop and regress the growth and let you live a"normal life" as all these men -- are enjoying. I can and will truthfully state that I have never lost a gleason 7 or below in all these many, many years I have been helping men with prostate cancer(providing they do not start with the medical Kevorkian club first).
It has been further proven-- without a shadow of doubt-- that if a man does nothing medically for prostate cancer, he will live the same amount of years-- or longer-- than the man who has medical treatment for his prostate cancer. He will also have a much better quality of life. I challenge any medical doctor or any other entity to prove me wrong using"truthful, unbiased stats and studies. In fact, I beg any medical organization (the Johns Hopkins, Sloan Keatering, Loma Linda, prostate cancer centers, etc) and any other of the so called expert/state of the art facilities to compare their death rate and quality of life with the hundreds and hundreds of clients that I have helped around the world. Of course, I have asked this in the past and it appears that the medical folks do not want to be embarrassed or exposed - maybe both. Thank God, for your sake, you do not have to take my word alone: call and speak to these men that have been in your condition. Many of these men had already experienced the horrors of the so called "recommended medical treatment" due to the lies and scare tactics used to pressure them and their families.
I plead with you, do not run out there and do anything that these medical folks coerce you to do-- REMEMBER; THEY PAY THEIR BILLS WITH YOUR LIFE AND AGONY. Most of them live a very lavish life style. If you go to the urologist, they want to cut out your prostate and butcher your sex life and most men's "livelihood." If you go to the radiologist, they want to cook you. If you go to the Oncologist, they want to chemo/poison you. Come on men wake up!!!!!!! Please, be a shepherd - not a sheep! Get out of the tooth fairy/Santa belief system of lies and torture. Remember when the banks steal they cost you your money and livelihood, but the medical system could very well, cost you your life and livelihood. I am here to help you!

The most significant event in the recent history of prostate cancer care has been the introduction, for a time, of a combination herbal remedy that caught cancer doctors by surprise. This herbal dietary supplement captured the attention of prostate cancer patients and doctors alike. The herbal combo began extending the lives of otherwise helpless prostate cancer patients facing the advanced life-threatening form of their disease. How the cancer industry responded to this development, and the events surrounding the decision to withdraw this herbal formula from the marketplace, despite its unprecedented effectiveness, reveals much about the dismal state of cancer care in America. One cannot read this account without becoming outraged at the final outcome.
An herbal remedy captivates
About 230,000 men learn of their prostate cancer each year in the United States. Among them is a group of about 40,000 men who face the aggressive form of the disease where the cancer has begun to spread to bone and other organs, threatening their lives.
In the mid-1990s, men with this progressive form of prostate cancer found a multi-herbal remedy to be quite effective in subduing the pain, inflammation and spread of prostate cancer. Sadly, the product was suddenly recalled for mislabeling problems, never to be re-introduced.
The whole unfortunate tale is indicative of what is going on in the cancer care industry today and worthy of re-analysis here. This is a story that every male with prostate cancer needs to read and understand. If you are familiar with this story, new data places a different ending to the story.
The saga begins
Long about 1996, a research scientist by the name of Sophie Chen, PhD, a graduate of Columbia University and post-doctoral fellow at Cornell University, who spent 14 years working for pharmaceutical companies (Merck Sharp & Dohme and Bayer USA), developed a multi-herbal product for males with advanced prostate cancer. It was named PC-SPES. The PC stood for prostate cancer, and "spes" is the Latin word for hope.
In 1988, Dr. Chen began her research into the role that natural herbs can play in healing and curing cancer, and obtained a dozen U.S. patents. In 1993, Dr. Chen co-founded the International Medical Research Corporation with "Allan" Xuhui Wang, MD, and John Chen (her brother), which did business under the name BotanicLab, the maker of PC-SPES.
Chen and Wang, who is also an herbalist, collaborated to modify an existing herbal formula used in China to treat urologic problems, which became the PC-SPES product. The first patient to use it was Chen's brother-in-law, a physician in Taiwan with advanced prostate cancer who was alive and well 10 years later. [Journal National Cancer Institute 94: 1266-68, 2002]
Over time Dr. Chen had secured research grants from the National Cancer Institute and prostate cancer survivor/investor Michael Milken's CaP CURE organization. Eventually an $8 million study grant from the National Institutes of Health was obtained, but the study never took place due to product quality problems. [PSA Rising, Dec. 19, 2003]
Many urologists and oncologists believed the herbal mix was prolonging their patients' lives. Over 100 studies were published, validating its beneficial effects.
Whatever ingredients were in PC-SPES, they were producing a breakthrough in prostate cancer treatment all the while the product was being slammed for adulteration.
Michael Cook is an example. A 49-year-old who was diagnosed with prostate cancer at age 44, his tumors had spread to his ribs and pelvis. PC-SPES dropped his PSA from 80 to 0.2. "I've been on PC-SPES for three years now, and I seem to be in complete remission," said the patient. [LA Times Oct. 21, 2000]
A group of men with prostate cancer, called UsToo, reported that their members maintained a low PSA concentration with PC-SPES in two successive surveys (88% and 93%). "Even though there were some side effects, a great majority of men are realizing good PSA control while taking the capsules, with some users now into their fourth year of PC-SPES use," said their report. [Molecular Urology 4: 289-91, 2000]
Moreover, a study conducted by Eric Small, MD and William Oh, MD at the University of California at San Francisco, showed that PC-SPES produced a 47% response rate compared to just 28% for diethylstiberstrol alone, and reduced PSA levels by more than 80% in all of their prostate cancer patients, with one patient experiencing complete disappearance of a bladder mass. In Dr. Small and Oh's study involving 37 patients, three experienced blood clots. Side effects, however, were deemed to be "acceptable." [Journal Clinical Oncology 18: 3595-3603, 2000; Urology 57: 122-26, 2001]
A report in the Journal of Urology stated the side effect profile of PC-SPES was "comparable to estrogen treatment," with 42% experiencing nipple tenderness, 8% breast enlargement and 7% hot flashes. [Journal Urology 164: 1229-34, 2000]
Dr. Charles Myers of the American Institute for Diseases of the Prostate, in Charlottesville, Virginia, reported the case of a man whose PSA was nearly 3,000, an alarming level, but after taking PC-SPES it fell rapidly to below 1. Dr. Myers called PC-SPES "probably the most active agent" for treating prostate cancer in patients who no longer get results from conventional, hormone-blocking drugs. [Wall Street Journal May 26, 2002]
“Man surprised me most about humanity.Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health.And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.”
Personally let me state that I use this product faithfully as a nutritional supplement and have achieved great results. In fact, this product is helping preserve my quality of life as well as many others. You can call me personally and discuss your questions at no charge. Hell, just call to hear the latest on my personal saga. 970-275-0332 or email firstname.lastname@example.org " He who saves one life will save the entire world in time" Vincent T " I have educated myself for the sake of fellow sufferers to help and encourage."

RABDOSIA RUBESCENS (PC-SPES)
RABDOSIA RUBESCENS, is an ingredient in the old much maligned wrongly-declared-as- PC-SPES. It's common name, one which normally would be more recognizable than the Latin name, is Dong Ling Cao in Chinese. It was also called at one time Isodon rubescens and sometimes known as "Chinese sage bush". It is a rarely used Chinese herb that somehow found its way into the combination of ingredients that are contained in the anti-prostate cancer fighting PC-SPES preparation. Formal, published, in peer review medical journal studies have confirmed its valid use in fighting prostate cancer. ORIDONIN and PONICIDIN are primary active ingredients. The whole plant extract has been shown to be anti-neoplastic, have some activity against various cancers and to be of little toxicity with no reported ‘hormonal' effects.
-In a study looking at the active ingredients in PC-SPES, RABDOSIA RUBESCENS was the most potent and effective ingredient. -suppresses breast cancer. In fact in 12 studies recently in china it was able to suppress the growth of breast cancer tumors by 75-80% UNBELIEVABLE BUT TRUE -in the "FASEB JOURNAL 2008″ comparing RABDOSIA whole plant against the single extract, ORIDONIN, the whole plant worked better. It also appears very very importantly to inhibit the appearance of androgen independent prostate cancer. -shown effectiveness against several non prostate cancer cell lines -shows an "additive" effect against the prostate cancer cell line 22Rv1 with DENDRATHEMA MORIFOLIUM. -ORIDONIN tested against prostate cell lines: DU 145, LNCaP, breast cancer cell line: MCF-7, and ovarian cancer cell lines: A2780 and PTX10……induced cell death (apoptosis) in all cell lines. further study recommended by the research group. -inhibits breast cancer growth and angiogenesis (the growth of blood supplying vessels) and "appears to be most potent" of the individual components of PC-SPES in suppression of proliferation. -ORINDONIN AND PONICIDIN shown to have significant antiangiogenic activity at subcytotoxic concentrations. -ORINDONIN induces growth inhibition and apoptosis in 12 cancer cell lines, including prostate breast, non small cell lung, and acute promyelocytic leukemia. -LNCaP cells treated with an extract of PC-SPES showed a 72-80% reduction in cell growth and a similar decrease in cell viability. Each herb in PC-SPES had "distinct as well as overlapping properties". -ORIDONIN inhibits human laryngeal carcinoma cells -15 compounds were identified from RABDOSIA all were tested against 4 human cancer cell lines, individually, and each was shown to have some cytotoxicity against the cancer lines. -induced cell death (apoptosis) in human epidermoid carcinoma A431 cells.
Sometimes it doesnt have to have a recognizable name. It JUST HAS TO WORK!! Isnt that the measure, whether something works or not? PC-SPES worked until something went wrong in the manufacturing process. It has worked in every test and study that has verified the purity of the ingredients used from tampering beforehand. The individual ingredients DITTO!
This small plant 2-4 feet tall with red flowers can be grown in your own backyard or ordered over the internet. Or you can try the new UK produced equivalent of the old PC-SPES.
It hurts to read and write about PC-SPES unlike any other phytonutrient(s) I've studied. It hurts because I wonder what happened, and it appears to be something that at least in my mind and opinion confirms that some of the pharmaceutical companies and government are out to produce profits rather than cures. A drug I receive to hold my cancer at bay, not a cure, a "palliative treatment" went up in price recently to over $2000 a dose. How much did a bottle of PC-SPES cost? Why is it not available anywhere? A simple answer. THEY DON"T WANT IT OUT THERE..The prostate snatcher industry would go broke if the is an anecdote that suppresses or prevents cancer.
You can help prevent cancer altogether by making the right choices in eating and supplements. You may not have cancer now, but why wait? Do it now, so you dont have to be in a terrible position later.
NEW LEGAL MORE EFFECTIVE FORMULA $59.95 30 DAY SUPPLY
David, PCSPES Works!!!! I was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer 3 1/2 years ago at age 46 (gleason =6, PSA = 6.7, 7 out of 12 biopsy samples 10-60% tumor.
Changing my lifestyle (juicing, detoxing, fasting) and taking PCSPES (from Dr. Donsback) helped me get my PSA down to 2 (from 6.7) in 4 months and PSA= 0.2 in a year and a half after I found that it was more effective when not taken with food. At 0.2 I did experience estrogenic effects (tender swollen left nipple and despression) however I was able to alleviate the side effects by taking (DIM - made from broccoli, found in any Health Food Store). I've been told by others who have metastized PC that PCSPES is more effective than hormonal drug treatments with less side effects. PCSPES also works after patients become hormonal refractive.
The New Formula is not made by the same company as PC SPES, There is no estrogen contamination and has added additional natural substances to improve prostate health including Nattokinase which addresses the fear of blood clots due to the high amount of phyto-estrogens in the herbal ingrediants.
There were clinical trials in Europe (including double-blind) and Dr. Donsback can get you a copy if you ask for it when you call their "Let's Talk Health" phone number.
Don't listen to "Skeptic Steve" - I'm a Space Analyst and analyzed everything on my own body (measuring PSA every 2 months and hormones), I'm sure HE DIDN't. I can tell you what worked and what didn't. PCSPES will be part of my health protocol for the rest of my life.
I did get HDR Brachytherapy a year ago but it didn't do as much for me as changing my lifestyle and taking PCSPES!!!!
If you have Prostate Cancer - use it . . . you won't be wasting your money and the Doctors will be amazed at you improvement. Email me if you want.
There is also another promising supplement called Reishi which is one of the main ingredients in the PC hope product. I am not so sure what to think of all the mix of herbs and what to make of each of their values in PC Hope. Read the thread under lung cancer forum about Reishi mushroom extract.

PCSPES works for me!
I have recurrent prostate cancer. In 1999 I had a radical prostatectomy but shortly after that, my PSA began to rise. By late 2005 it had reached 15 and was doubling in less than a year. After two months of four capsules of PCSPES per day, my PSA had dropped to 0.3. Two months later at two capsules per day it was still 0.3. Two months later at one capsule per day it was 0.1.
I am now taking one capsule every other day and will have another PSA test in about a month. It does work and it is easier for me to live with than Lupron which I was on for three months in 2001.
I don't know how long this will continue to hold my PSA down but it works for me now and the side effects are relatively mild at my current dosage. It is certainly cheap enough to try for two months.

Let's hear it for PCSPES
. Had radical prostatectomy in 1992. Some cells escaped the capsule, however my PSA remained low for 11 years. Two years ago it began to rise and in Nov. 2005 it was 1.4. My urologist recommended immediate hormone therapy. I didn't like the sound of it. Went to Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Fla. CT and bone scan OK -- it had not metasticized. (Colonoscopy OK as well.) Mayo recommended radiation therapy immediately or no later than after my PSA had risen to 2.0. Didn't like that procedure either. At Dr. Donsbach's recommendation I have been taking one capsule daily of his PCSPES for one month. My PSA has now dropped by more than half to 0.6. There are no noticeable side effects except perhaps increased tinnitus (ringing in the ears) for awhile. No painful nipples, no depression or anything else I can determine, although I am taking the minimum dosage. My next appointment with my urologist is May and the PSA may have diminished even further. I will be most interested in his reaction. I am very relieved I did not go for the hormones or radiation. I think I read somewhere that PCSPES is not refractory? Could someone comment on this?

Estrogen in Disguise? HARDLY
After one PCSPES capsule a day my PSA has gone from 1.4 to 0.6 to 0.8 and yesterday, 0.9. I had hoped it would remain around 0.6 or decrease even further and although the rise is slow I'm going to increase to 2 capsules of P. a day and check it in a month. Anyhow, I had the first visit with my local urologist since October, when with a PSA of 1.3 he advised hormonal therapy. Advising him of my usage for the first time, he was not familiar with the product (but was with PC SPES). His comment was that "it only slows it down" -- radiation therapy being the only thing that "kills it". This last procedure I refuse to undergo, for various reasons. He asked if there was any estrogen in PCSPES. None shows by name on the bottle, although some side effects seem identical with those of conventional estrogen therapy. Further, the doctor said that if estrogen was present, that usage on a long term basis can cause a breakdown of calcium in the body which can then lead to osteoporosis.

PCSPES worked for me
I'm sure by now your question is moot, but for the benifit of recent readers, I would like to offer my experiences with PCSPES. I have been wrestling with elevated PSA levels for nearly 2 years. My numbers would range from 9-13ng/ml. Finally, I succumbed and had a biopsy to discover cancer in my prostate. I have a Gleason of 3+3. This gives me some time to explore options. Last month, I was introduced to PCSPES. My last PSA was done in April, 2006. I clocked in at 11.5ng/ml. After one month, I took another PSA and reduced it to 5.7ng/ml :P I have another 5 weeks before I'm scheduled for HIFU. In another 3-4 weeks, I'll recheck my PSA. If it lowers to 2-3ng/ml, or better, I'm going to have to re-evaluate everything.
Best of luck to everyone in this journey. If you have time to explore options, I'd suggest trying PCSPES. At $75 to $150 per bottle, there's little downside. I think you will be pleased with its results.
Yes PCSPES works
Yes PCSPES worked exceptionally well for me.
Diagnosed 3 years ago at age 53 with advanced but contained PC the biopsy Gleason score was 4+5 = 9. PSA was 96. MRI and Bone Scan showed no spread beyond the prostate. I have not done the conventional treatments as my extensive research indicated that they largely did not extend ones life expectancy greatly but often reduced the quality of life significantly. My approach has been to do everything possible to help my immune system and this has mostly worked, with a recent MRI and Bone Scan showing no advance from 3 years ago. The PSA initially went down over the first year or so but then crept up slowly until 1 month ago it was 146.
I month ago I started taking PCSPES, 3x3 caps per day, as part of a treatment regime used by Prof. Dr Klaus Maar in Dusseldorf Germany. After 1 week my PSA was down to 80, after 2 weeks 17, after 3 weeks 6 and after 4 weeks 0.8 (that's right zero point eight!!!)
I will take a break now from the PCSPES and keep a watch on the PSA, if it starts going up then I will do a maintenance couse of 2x2 caps per day for 2 weeks and then 2 weeks of none - repeated as necessary.
The other treatment in the regime includes localised and whole-body heat treatment (diathermie), intravenous vit C, oxygen carriers and Mistl. Dr Maar is a Professor of Urology and has a web site, it is unfortunatly in German, if you can't read it I strongly urge you to find someone who can translate it for you... BTW I am a New Zealander and live in NZ, I came across Dr Maar's clinic while on holiday in Germany and then stayed longer to do the treatment. In a couple of months when my prostate has had a chance to settle down after the heat-treatments I will be doing a follow up MRI -- I will report the results on the forum, I am very hopeful that I will be able to report that the tumour has gone or significantly reduced.
PCSPES does "work" but....
PC-SPES, crinum latifolium and Prostasol all bring down PSA scores, but are any of them a magic bullet for curing/preventing prostate cancer? Remember that PSA is the thermometer, and if you hold an ice cube on the thermometer, it doesn't mean the room gets cold. There are several alternative things to do to increase oxygen and alkalinity in the cells, and help the immune system mop up remaining prostate cancer cells. There's a free report at www.beat-prostate-cancer.net about this.
SOURCE: apart from the formulation, I do not see that where the "PCSPES" is obtained from is necessarily relevant.
PSA: have not previously found anyone who implied that a PSA reduction from 146 to .8 is not a good thing: eg; that is exactly the result many men undertaking hormone treatment would like.
These is an all natural amazing products that help me and thousands of others .Formulated and packaged under the most stringent conditions. It can only help, and will never hurt. I bet my life on it....
