Boron (found in plums, grapes, avocadoes, nuts, legumes) helps to significantly reduce PSA (prostate-specific antigen, a serine protease enzyme) levels, the current marker for prostate cancer. - 8/2006
[Caution: boron causes estradiol 17B (good estrogen) to double ]
Broccoli sprouts @ -
An anti-cancer compound (I3C) found in broccoli (especially sprouts) & cabbage works by lowering the activity of an enzyme associated with rapidly advancing breast cancer... (Best if organic & raw.)
Indole-3-carbinol (I3C) stops cell growth.
Elastase is an enzyme that shortens a cellular chemical, cyclin E, that is involved in controlling the cell cycle.
The shortened version of cyclin E accelerates the cell cycle, making cancer cells proliferate faster.
Firestone showed that I3C prevents the elastase shortening of cyclin E, thereby arresting development of breast cancer cells...
Indole-3-carbinol interferes with more than cell proliferation.
It also disrupts the migration & alters adhesion properties of cancer cells, as well as counteracts the survival ability of cancer cells, all of which are implicated in cancer cell growth.
'To have such broad downstream
effects, I3C must act at the beginning of a major cellular pathway', Firestone said...                                          Bjeldanes noted that I3C is available as a supplement & is a preferred preventative treatment for recurrent respiratory papillomatosis, a condition involving non-malignant tumors of the larynx...                            I3C is only 1 of many plant-derived chemicals, called phyto-chemicals, that Firestone is investigating in his lab as potential anti-cancer agents.
Among them is the anti-malarial drug (herb) artemisinin. Last month, the Journal of Biological Chemistry accepted a paper by Firestone & his colleagues showing that artemisinin blocks prostate cancer cell growth by interfering with the same intracellular pathway as does I3C.
This pathway involves the transcription factor SP1, which latches onto other genes to boost their activity."
CoQ10 may lower cell growth of PC3 cancer per 8/04 Life Extension magazine.
Dr Contreras, Francisco at the Oasis of Hope Hospital, NW Mexico in The Prostate recommends reducing DHT (dihydro-testosterone) by NOT eating (factory produced) meat or milk containing hormones. 
He says
Saw palmetto (serenoa repens) palm tree fruit, zinc & wild yam (natural progesterone) may prevent the (unwanted/excess) conversion of testosterone to DHT.
Graminaceae Flower Pollen Extract, is an allergen-free extract of flower pollen that provides powerful prostate support for men & urinary function support to both men & women.
Flower Pollen - "Cernitin® is a microbiologically fermented extract created from the pollen of various plants, including rye grass.
Pollens: the male seeds that enable flowering plants to reproduce, are gathered directly from plants in the field. (Bee pollen is
not used.) The flower pollens are then combined in standardized proportions. The husks that sheath the microscopic pollen grains are removed using a Swiss-developed technology to eliminate the bacteria, fungi, toxins & pollutants that are attached to the husk. This produces a product that is free from toxic substances & less likely to cause allergic reactions. 2 fractions are produced in the extraction process:
a hydrophilic, water-soluble fraction and a lipophilic, fat-soluble fraction. Cernitin® contains both the water & fat-soluble fractions. Chemical analysis of Cernitin® indicates that it contains many constituents, including vitamins & minerals, carotenoids, amino acids, enzymes, phytosterols, lipids & fatty acids."

Lycopene is the red carotenoid found in tomatoes & watermelon which may fight prostate cancer. 8/8/2006
(Note. Tomato is in the nightshade/narcotic plant family.)
Modified citrus pectin is a cutting edge help in prostate cancer treatment per S B Strum MD & R Fox in 3/2004 Life Extension
To date the only (clinically) proven brand in clinical trails is Pecta-Sol which is micronized citrus pectin. 
It is small enough to get into the blood stream. Some vegetables (sunflower seeds) & many fruits contain pectin: tart apples, crab apples, sour plums, concord grapes, quinces, cranberries, gooseberries, & red currants are high in pectin concentrated in the skin & cores.  Canning pectin may be obtained in powder or liquid form.
Regular larger molecule pectin is utilized mainly in the intestines.
Citrus pectin is from the peel/skin of fruit (grapefruit, lemons, oranges) that contain vitamin C

LaValle, James [Dr of Naturopathic Medicine, board-certified clinical nutrionist & Founder of LaValle Metabolic Institute (LMI) ] - Cracking the Metabolic Code @ -
"LaValle is a member of the American College of Clinical Pharmacy & was named 1 of the 50 most influential pharmacists in the U.S. by American Druggist magazine...
LaValle was recommending...dietary supplement made in Hungary from fermented wheat germ & approved as a medical food in Europe...for cancer patients & for those with autoimmune disorders...
The active ingredient in the fermented wheat germ slows the uptake of sugar in cancer cells, effectively starving the tumor.  It also helps to prevent cancer cells from reproducing out of control.
In addition, this nutrient can even improve the efficacy & reduce the
side-effects of chemotherapy...
[Fermented foods (pickles, sauerkraut, etc.) contribute to healthy body flora/bacterial count/PH & thus healing.]
Glucosamine and chondroiton are the '800 pound gorillas' of natural remedies for relieving arthritis pain (etc)...
A common
grapefruit (&/or grapefruit seeds) can speed your recovery after injury & help wounds heal up to 50% faster." says that: "
9 Key Factors within every human body that are essential for the creation & maintenance of a strong, healthy body at every age & stage of life.  The 9 Key Factors include the:
1.Pancreas 2.Adrenals 3.Thyroid/Pituitary/Sex Organs 4.Intestines 5.Organs of Detoxification 6.Oxygen 7.Food, Vitamins, and Minerals 8.Water 9.Enzymes...

Ornish, Dr. Dean  advocates 90% vegan diet to avert prostate cancer.  issue2sciupdate.htm -
"Remember the (protein) enzyme Papain is highest in the green, unripened fruit.
Mother Nature puts it in there to bring the fruit to the ripened stage. Once it is ripened the enzyme is used up."
Pawpaw "Paw Paw is a cousin of the graviola, guanabana & soursop trees. However, the acetogenins extracted from Paw Paw are more active against cancer."
(Some cites site papaya as another name for pawpaw.) 
(Spiritual WARNING.  Avoid any participation in hypnosis therapy or use.)
Pawpaw By reducing this (electrical cell) voltage level from 70 to 110 mv to something in the 50 mv region, normal cells can still function. However, cancer & viral cells cannot process energy at this low voltage level and start to starve. The process of starving is a slower process than being poisoned which is why Paw Paw works slower than chemo. When Paw Paw does not work, it is usually because it is not absorbed sufficiently into the cells of the body to cause this voltage reduction. Both Cantron and Protocel are also designed to cause this voltage reduction. If Paw Paw does not work for a person, Cantron or Protocel may work.
The pharmacology of Cantron and Protocel have an expanded explanation for the role ATP energy reduction in cancer treatment, for this text see the
developer's explanation summarized by the webmaster Paul Winter .
Pomegranates may slow progression of prostate cancer in those who already failed conventional treatment.  Pomegranates may slow PSA doubling time by over 3x. 
Some pomegranate a day may keep prostate cancer away. Summer2006/Winter2007
Pomegranates -  "A 2005 study presented to the American Urological Association in San Antonio found that just 8 ounces of pomegranate juice a day prevented metastasis in men previously treated for prostate cancer.
A study presented in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences found that pomegranate not only stops the growth of cancer cells. 
It actually forces those cells to undergo apoptosis, or pre-programmed cell death."
Pumpkin seeds contain 40-50 parts per million of zinc for which the prostate has an affinity. 
Semen itself is rich in zinc. Zinc rich foods are brewer's yeast, onions, rice bran, eggs, nuts, molasses, rabbit, chicken, peas, beans, lentils, wheat germ, wheat bran, oysters, beef liver & gelatin
Most seeds including sunflower contain zinc.  Vitamin B & zinc help to prostatitis (prostate problems /enlargement).  Burtis, C. Edward  Nature's Miracle Medicine Chest  Arco publishing
Whitaker recommends plant sterols -Saw palmetto, Pygeum

Khalsa MD in Food as Medicine warns men to eliminate black pepper which exacerbates enlarged prostates.  
Synthetic Supplements @ - 2023-03-20 -  For example "consumption of all (synthetic) rac-alpha-tocopherol may be associated with increased prostate cancer risk". 
(Also beware of inexpensieve, imported &/or brand names that do not have a historic good reputation & hopefully have not been bought up by companies with less discression or hopefully are not managed by successors with less discression.)


EPCA (early prostate cancer antigen) test may eliminate false positives in PSA (prostate specific antigen) protein test. 9/2005
Excessive (sex hormones such as testosterone or) estrogen may contribute to tumor formations or growth; but the body's production of 2-methoxy-estradiol (synthetic patented as Panzem) can help retard the cancers of prostate, breast, pancreas, ovary, & intestines by simply increasing one's intake of RAW WHOLE methyl group foods (organic green vegetables, berries, citrus, nuts - eaten with their respective live enzymes/methyl donors), supplements (SAMe, MSM, B vitasmins, especially methyl-cobalamin form of B12 & methty-folate form of folic acid) &/or topical/transdermal cream. 11/2009

"Originally, metformin was known under the trade name Glucophage...
As a
drug it was actually 1st synthesized in the 1920’s...quickly overshadowed by the Nobel prize-winning discovery of the role of insulin in the treatment of diabetes...
This drug actually stems from a flowering plant called Galega officinalis, more commonly known as French lilac or goat’s rue.
The active ingredient is a
chemical biguanide known as
Galegine, after the botanical name of the plant. 
As an
herbal extract, Galegine was used traditionally to treat people with polyuria (excessive urination due to excess sugar in the urine) & sweet odor on the breath.
Today, we recognize these as 2 leading symptoms of untreated diabetes. 
References date as far back as ancient Egypt & it was in common use in Medieval Europe.

The herbal treatment was featured in an English medical treatise by Culpepper in the 17th  century.
It was studied at the University of Edinburgh, a leading medical center of the 18th century from which the 1st medical school in America was established in 1765.  It has also been used in Asia to treat influenza & is said to have antibiotic, antiviral, antimalarial, & antipyretic (fever) activities...

Prolonged use of metformin can cause a deficiency in vitamin B12. Especially in those suffering from peripheral neuropathy...Look for a vitamin B complex that contains 100 mg each of vitamins B1 (as thiamine), B2 (as riboflavin), B3 (as niacinamide), B5 (as pantethene), 100 mg B6 (as pyridoxine) & 1,000 mcg of B12 (as cyanocobalamine)."
RECOMMENDED daily vitamins/herbs: Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA): 300 mg + (especially)

400-500 mg, (Ceylon) Cinnamon: 1 gram (food quantity)
+ Coenzyme Q10: 150 mg (preferably non GMO, organic in vegetarian capsule)
The PSA blood test looks for the enzyme called prostate specific antigen, a potential cancer warning. 
Evaluate total PSA, free PSA (bPSA, IPSA, proPSA) + complex PSA. - health journal 3/23/2004
