Has anyone tried mushroom supplements, I’m only asking as I read about a small clinical trial. https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.1002/cncr.29421

It looks very interesting but as always it pays to be a bit cynical. 

Thanks

Hi Paul

I think there is considerable interest in nutrition and diet within this forum. Yes there are some who are not interested but many including myself who are. I for one would appreciate it if you share such info.

Cheers

Bill

Morning Mick, 

Thanks for posting the study on mushrooms. Hope you don't mind the private message and please accept my apologies if you do. The reason is, I don't find much interest from fellow forum members regarding nutritional intervention. I read it with much interest as I believe what we consume can affect this disease to some degree. A lot of well organised studies have been conducted using many and varied foods. Thanks again, and I wish you well for the future Mick.

All the best, Paul.

Good afternoon,

The particular studies regarding PCa and diet/lifestyle that I found most informative (and hopeful) were the ones undertaken by Dean Ornish and endorsed by Dr Michael Greger. One of the aspects of this study looked at the impact of stress and PCa. I realised that I definitely needed to change my life wherever feasible to lessen my own stress. Prior to receiving my cancer diagnosis I retired in July 2014 and immediately felt better, but within a year, in July 2015, I'd had a prostatectomy. Since then, I have made other changes, that have made my life uncluttered and the difference I feel is really evident despite copying with disease recurrence and subsequent SRT. My relationship with my partner in some ways, but not all I'm sorry to say,has become less stressful. I'm aware that some stress is normal, even preferable, and I'll never know if mine was instrumental in getting PCa, but I certainly know that how I now feel makes the future more copable. I also will never know if my diet is having any effect on cancer progression, but I'm happy and well nourished in adopting it. 

Take care, Paul.

Hi, I’m glad I’m not the only one interested in using diet and supplements to help with my fight with this disease.
I take Pomo-t
Turmeric
Pomegranate juice
CBD oil
and make sure I get plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables. Ever since my diagnosis I have continued to train and keep fit.
I’m very interested it what everyone else is doing.

David takes Pomi-t, cannabis oil, a mushroom compound, and we grow most of our own organic veggies, we eat cooked tomatoes by the dish full, no red meat, very little dairy, fish and chicken. Very interested in diet and alternative treatments to compliment his other meds and treatments.

I have been eating a lot of mushrooms this last couple of months and have started taking them as a supplement, well I have just had my latest psa results and my psa is down from 1.9 to 1.6. I can’t claim that’s a massive difference but anything that’s not up is good with me! I intend to continue to see what the next 3 months bring, I have also just had my 3 year anniversary of being diagnosed so feel like I’m entering the danger zone and keep expecting my results to change for the worse.

Whilst not quite up to the ultra marathon standard I do train daily and have run a couple of half marathons, I firmly believe that going to the gym and running have greatly improved my quality of life. It’s always difficult to quantify these things but increasingly science is catching up with it, and it is now generally believed to have real benefits as to life expectancy and not just dealing with the side effects of ADT. I really fancy a big challenge for next year, I’m down to do the 3 peaks and my 3rd half marathon, but wouldn’t mind doing something a bit more exciting!

At the moment I’m just on Prostat having had chemotherapy early 2016.
