60-year-old Les had the following underlying medical problems: hypertension, depression, ischaemic heart disease and 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 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. He was advised to go for chemotherapy or TURP. He declined both procedures. Instead, he came to seek our help on 15 May 2011. After one 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. Listen to our conversation.
