LES (H608) is a 60-year-old man. He had the following underlying medical problems:
- Ischaemic heart disease (reduced blood supply of the heart muscle to coronary artery disease).
- Childhood asthma.
In 2004 he was diagnosed with a benign prostatic hyperplasia — a non-cancerous enlargement of the prostate gland. This makes urination difficult and uncomfortable. He has been taking Hytrin (Terzosin) ever since.
In May 2011, his PSA reading was at 9.2. A biopsy was done and indicated cancer of the prostate, Gleason score 3 + 3. The doctor suggested that LES undergo chemotherapy or TURP (transurethral resection of the prostate). LES declined both procedures. Instead, he came to seek our help on 15 May 2011.
LES was prescribed Capsue A, deTox tea and Prostate A tea. After a week on the herbs, LES reported that he felt “heaty”. Four days on the herbs he did not have any more pain when urinating. But if he stopped taking the herbs, the pain recurred.
We did not get to see LES again until the end of March 2012.
When LES came in March 2012 – i.e. ten months later, he said that:
- He was not committed enough – As you said, I must be faithful in taking your herbs. When I became well I did not take your herbs!
- When he first came his PSA was 9.4. After taking the herbs it dropped to 7.5, then to 5.5. He decided to stop taking the herbs – I was too lazy to cook the herbs! His PSA went up to 9.2.
- His doctor suggested medical intervention – surgery and radiation – but he declined. He decided to come back to us and start with the herbs again!
- He told his doctor that he was taking our herbs.
- Chris: Okay, that is fine. Don’t worry, you don’t have to die with PSA 9.4!
