Red Meat – Good or Bad for The Prostate?

  1. Bjarne Kausland

    In 2013 I was diagnosed with Prostate cancer Gleason score 7.
    I went to Germany and was treated. I have used total health for the Prostate ever since and sometimes combined it with Prostate Power and Prostate Healer. Lately I have changed to Total health for the Prostate Advanced (Great product), however all of sudden my PSA has started to increase with 1 point a week, it is now 11.93 and rising. I feel fine, number of trips to the bathroom has not changed the last year ( 2 to 3 every night but no problem during the day). I admire your expertise and ask for your advise.
    (Note!, I do have your book All about the prostate 2015 addition)
    Thank you
    Look forward to your response
    Best Regards.

      Hi Bjarne, Good to hear from you. A rapid spike in PSA is certainly something that you should take a look at. If you aren’t experiencing any pain or discomfort, it may be that it isn’t Prostatitis. I would suggest you get a Tesla 3 MRI (sometimes known as an mpMRI – multi parametric) to get a high resolution 3D image of your prostate and confirm that there isn’t any growth you need to be concerned with. Always start by ruling out cancer, and then we can look at other causes and work out if there’s any steps we can take. If you would like to discuss this further please get in touch with [email protected] and our team will be happy to help.

    Since testosterone is not the cause of prostate cancer, is supplementing with t ok?

    • Ben Ong

      Could you let me know what you’re using testosterone for, exactly?

  3. Howard Rose

    What about sour honey and how to get it?

    • Ben Ong

      Hi Howard, when shopping for honey, always choose the darker versions like buckwheat and manuka. Raw honey is always best and if you can find locally sourced honey, you are in luck. However, it’s important to note that honey is high in sugar content and actually has a very similar effect on the body that sugar has.

  7. Robb Soria

    Is ginger in any of the supplements ? Would you recommend adding fresh ginger daily ?

    • Ben Ong

      Hi Robb, You just need to eat it – your body processes and absorbs the nutrients within it. Get good quality, organic ginger, put it in your food and you will see the benefits. I particularly like having it in hot water, sometimes with lemon too.
      I also use Ginger Root extract in Advanced Total Health for the prostate, as I’ve seen the benefits firsthand.
      I wish you good health,
      Ben
