Budi, in his mid-sixties, had problems with urination in 1996. The doctor suspected BPH – Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia. He was prescribed Proscar. This medication was effective and Budi took this for about 2 years. With the medication, his PSA readings were normal.
In 2008, Budi was prescribed Avodart, a stronger medicine, according to the doctor. He was on this drug for a year. With time, his PSA started to increase.
The doctor suspected something was not right and did a digital examination on Budi. There was no swelling. Budi refused to perform a biopsy because according to him he would not want to undergo any form of medical treatments after that. No, he would not what to have his prostate or testes removed. Neither would he agree to chemotherapy or radiation. Budi told us that his relative had his prostate removed but the PSA still kept going up after eight years.
Budi came to see us in July 2011 and was started on the herbs. He also bought an e-Therapy machine for use at home. It has been 5 years now and Budi is doing fine — as healthy as ever. The best part of the deal is he gets to keep his prostate! Below are his PSA readings over the years.
From 11.97 his PSA started to decline. In January 2015 it was 4.6. Because things went on so well for Budi, he started to eat some “forbidden” foods. In March 2016, Budi realised his misadventure. His PSA shot up to 8.0. Budi said he already knew why the PSA was high. Now, I am already back to my “good diet” again.
