The prospect of radiation therapy and hormone treatment strike me as barbaric. I’m currently treating my prostate cancer with numerous supplements, including AHCC, apigenin, artemisinin, curcumin, ginger, cayenne, boswellia, and others.

While I will share some articles with you from folks who’ve found largely optimistic outlooks, it’s important to also acknowledge that these authors have also had (sometimes long) periods of depression and anxiety.

@eimmas25, thanks for reaching out about this, and I think it’s the first time we’ve heard about it.
