Testing for Prostate Problems

Tuesday, 09 September 2014 04:50 PM Current | Bio | Archive

Q: I am 85 and I recently had a PSA (prostate-specific antigen) test that measured 6.3 ng/ml. How much of a problem will that be?
— Ed K., Watsonville, Calif.
A: An elevated PSA test by itself means little, as it can be elevated from a number of conditions other than cancer of the prostate, such as prostatitis and benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPA). The test is only valuable when it increases over time. You should have it repeated in two months and see if it increases.
A number of plant extracts and minerals can reduce PSAs, including quercetin, zinc, curcumin, resveratrol and beta-sitosterol.
Q: Can chelation be taken with the memory medications you recommend? What are your feelings about the chelation med?
— Ann C., Springfield, Ill.
A: Yes, chelation and the memory medications I recommend are compatible. Chelation medications depend on what you are chelating. For mercury, most presently available agents are not very effective and can have a number of complications.
For excess calcium, EDTA is an excellent chelating agent and can be used intravenously or as a suppository. For iron, the main chelating agent is very toxic and requires extremely painful injections.
Most flavonoids will chelate iron and do so harmlessly and orally. The best include the catechins, quercetin, and hesperidin.
Q: My daughter, who is 11, suffers from allergic rhinitis. Do you know of any alternative to immunotherapy shots?
— Ela F., Youngstown, Ohio
A: Butterbur is an extract that significantly reduces allergic rhinitis symptoms. Baicalein also reduces the reactions that cause these symptoms. Baicalein has additional benefits, including reducing iron toxicity and protecting the brain from inflammation and excitotoxicity.
Boosting immunity actually worsens symptoms. The allergy shots use the things she is allergic to and the idea is to overload the immune system with these allergens so that the immune cells will no longer react to that specific substance.
