Prostate Health – “Gold Standard” vs Alternative Treatment – Which is better? Pros & Cons revealed and discussed.
“This website is my compilation of info I gathered after my blood work reported a PSA of 33.89. Use it but also go get your own info and don’t do anything until you feel like you know it all.” Kurt
This is the #1 Thing To Learn When You Find Out You Have A High PSA Level:
You Can Only Trust What YOU Decide – NOT What Your Doc Tells You!
First, only YOU are unbiased. Every doctor is biased toward their field of study. Yes, even YOUR doc!
Second, your average brick mason knows more about nutritional health and supplements than your doctor does. Seriously, and sadly, this is not an exaggeration!
DO NOT underestimate the veracity of these two points at your own peril!
For me, hearing a report that my PSA was at 33.89 was a wake up call to personal research. I split it into two stages:
Note, there is a lot to read and learn about the different methods of detection, but I have inserted a quick note about the “Free PSA” test which is different than a “PSA test” because I think this topic is often missed and many doctors don’t utilize the free PSA method, thus this quote from the sourced link below: “The free PSA test measures the percentage of free PSA relative to the total amount.9 The lower the ratio, the greater the probability of prostate cancer. Measuring free PSA may help eliminate unnecessary biopsies.”
The treatment stage appears to have two camps:
- Standard care (aka “gold standard”)
- Alternative care (aka nutritional treatment)
As I continue to add to my learning, I will add more to this website at these posts:
Noteworthy Overview Of My Research:
One thing that became clear from the onset is the divide between these two groups of people. The ‘gold standard’ crowd seems closed minded to the positions of the AMA and traditional medicine. The ‘alternative care’ crowd includes those who started their career in the ‘alternative care’ field but there are many successful professionals who started their career in the ‘gold standard’ crowd and evolved into the ‘alternative care’ camp. . . . .
