Confused daughter

Hi
After spending most of my Saturday night researching vitamins and supplements ( sad aren't I lol) to try and help with my dads prostate cancer, I came across a supplement called Pomi T, I have read about a small but promising trial on this taken in 2013, I was wondering if anyone had tried this and had any views ? I may be clutching at straws but I will buy anything that may help my lovely dad :-(
Any advice or reviews would be much appreciated
Thanks

Hi Viv,

I take Pomi-T, a doctor came to give a talk to our support group a couple of years ago, his talk was titled something along the lines of 'What can we do to help our treatment succeed'.  He recommended PomiT and I have taken it ever since, whether or not it makes any difference is debatable, but it can't do any harm.

I wouldn't let him start taking supplements or making major dietary changes until he has finished with all the diagnostic tests. With the exception perhaps of Pomi-T, it is generally better to change diet than to take more synthesised or modified items. Once the results are all in and he knows which treatment he is going for, you could read Jane Plant's book about possible diet links with breast & prostate cancer, or buy Prostate Cancer Research UK's cookbook (available from Amazon) which is similar to Plant's theories but not as extreme. Briefly, men with PCa are advised to reduce red meat & dairy, and increase garlic, onions, tomatoes (cooked, braised, processed), broccoli and soya. Cranberry juice helps reduce bladder irritation if he has radiotherapy or while the catheter is in post-op.

Thank you both for the sound advice, it's ironic but my dad has always ate a very healthy diet, no red meats and very little dairy He has coeliacs disease which may or may not be a hinderance , I will def have a look at the cookbook mentioned,
Once again thank you both 👍🏼

My Oncologist is one of those involved with the marketing and research into Pomi-T, and both he and I are convinced it has slowed the current rise in my PSA.
