Prostate Cancer

Prostate Cancer

The prostate is a chestnut-sized gland within the male reproductive system. Located between the front of the rectum and the bladder, the prostate envelops part of the urethra (the tube responsible for the flow of urine and sperm). Its primary function is to produce, store and distribute the seminal fluid for the semen. Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men of all races and is the second leading cause of cancer-related death among all men. Conventional medicine provides several treatment options like radiotherapy chemotherapy or surgery, all of which are associated with various negative side effects. This has prompted many men to try alternatives, including herbal treatments. Primary examples are the plant extracts from Pao pereira (Pau pereira) and Rauwolfia vomitoria both of which have a long history of traditional use. Dr. Mirko Beljanski perfected some specific extracts of these botanicals. When facing cancer, many men, including former French President François Mitterrand, have relied on these extracts.

Soon, researchers, at Columbia University Medical Center (USA) and Nanjing University (China) were eager to study those promising natural products in their own laboratories.

Recent breakthrough in Prostate Cancer Research

Studies confirm that thanks to its multiple mechanisms of action, Pao pereira (Pau pereira) is effective at all stages of the prostate disease (inflammation, cancer, and advanced hormone independent tumors), without toxicity and without side effects. Rauwolfia vomitoria is also effective against prostate cancer cells, with a different and complementary mechanism of action.

PROSTATE INFLAMMATION (BPH)

As men age, the prostate tends to get inflamed, swollen and enlarged, which may cause serious urinary problems. This condition is called BPH (Benign Prostate Hyperplasia). Tens of millions of men suffer from it, and conventional medicine does not offer a definitive cure. Pao pereira (Pau pereira) inhibits chronic prostate inflammation by acting through two pathways.

PROSTATE CANCER

When added to cultured prostate cancer cells (LNCaP), Pao pereira (Pau pereira) extract significantly suppressed cell growth and induced apoptosis. In animal studies, tumor growth was suppressed by up to 80%. Learn more

The Rauwolfia vomitoria extract significantly suppressed the growth and cell cycle progression of LNCaP cells, in vitro and in vivo. Learn more

ADVANCED PROSTATE CANCER

Pao pereira (Pau pereira) extract is effective against prostate cancer cells that no longer respond to agents that interfere with hormone action. Research shows that by acting on a signaling complex called NFkB, Pao pereira (Pau pereira) could be useful for men with advanced hormone-independent prostate cancer. Learn more

Natural support at every stage of prostate disease

What if the same approach could offer both prevention and intervention? What if this approach was effective and devoid of side effects?

Over 40 million men suffer from BPH in the United States alone and conventional medicine  does not offer a definitive cure without side effects. Recent research shows that Pao pereira (Pau pereira) extract reduces chronic prostate inflammation by balancing the hormone changes that occur with age and inhibiting excess NFkB activity that promotes prostate inflammation. In addition, Pao pereira (Pau pereira) induces apoptosis, also known as the “cell death program”, of those cells which are chronically inflamed. These BPH studies complement previous publications showing that Pao pereira (Pau pereira) is effective on prostate cancer cells and even on metastasized cancer cells that no longer respond to hormonal treatments. Both Pao pereira (Pau pereira) and Rauwolfia vomitoria, selectively block the duplication of cancerous destabilized DNA while not affecting healthy DNA.

The Beljanski Approach to Cancer

Now there’s a natural way to combat cancerous cells while being gentle on healthy cells. Dr. Mirko Beljanski, PhD., now being recognized as the “Father of Environmental Medicine,” conducted ground-breaking research revealing the connection between toxins in our environment and the onset of cancer. And he was quick to reason that nature holds the answers for a cure to all cancers. Natural, non-toxic ingredients developed and perfected by Dr. Mirko Beljanski selectively block the duplication of cancerous destabilized DNA while not affecting healthy DNA. They work on every type of cancer at every stage because they are not gender or organ specific. Based upon the legacy of Dr. Mirko Beljanski, the Beljanski Foundation has been working collaboratively for the past three decades with scientists worldwide to research a natural approach to cancer.

The Beljanski extracts have now become the topic of many peer-reviewed scientific publications, from numerous academic institutions, confirming their effectiveness and providing a deeper understanding of their mechanism of action.

The Beljanski Foundation’s team is committed to sharing these findings with you, so that you can make informed decisions to help restore and maintain optimal health.

"Men are clearly having less frequency, better streams, and better flow rates. They are not getting up as often at night. The bottom line is that our early results are very encouraging regarding Beljanski’s extracts’ ability to lower PSA and also help older men urinate better."

Dr. Andy. Katz

What it says about Prostate Cancer

“Interestingly, just like for men with advanced prostate cancer, there is not much currently offered to men with simply elevated PSA (averaging 8 to 10 on the PSA scale), as long as they have not been diagnosed with cancer. Our so-called ‘health system’ is actually sick-centered. We don’t do much for prevention, and even conveniently confuse the terms diagnosis and prevention. In fact, they are completely opposite: diagnosis is about recruiting more clients that will fuel the economy of the sick-centered system, while prevention is about preventing them from entering the system in the first place.”

Jacques E: Prostate cancer

13 years of hindsight.

In April 2006, during my annual blood test, my PSA level was 10.1.

My attending physician then put me in touch with a urologist in France, at the beginning of May. He performed a prostate biopsy and x-ray.

Results: At 70 years old I am diagnosed with prostate cancer adenocarcinoma with a Gleason score of 10. My PSA levels rose in a year to 10ng / mg when it was 4.5 (normal) a year ago.

In summary, out of 16 prostate biopsy samples, only one showed infiltration with a Gleason score of 10 over 1 mm; the lesion is classified T2a at the TR.

The urologist, after consultation with two colleagues, suggested the removal of the prostate, clearly specifying everything that could result from it. I asked him to think about it because I was thinking of the inconveniences (impotence, lack of erection).

We are in July 2006 and when I met a friend from Poitou, I told him about my problem.

My friend strongly advises me not to follow up, telling me that one of his parents had been taking "American" products for over 10 years and it worked.

By calling his parents, I discovered the name of BELJANSKI. I went to an event with my partner and we were quickly convinced by the testimonials of everyone at the event about the Beljanski extracts that I began using the extracts right away (Pao pereira, Rauwolfia vomitoria and Golden Leaf of Ginkgo biloba).

Meeting a friend from an elementary school, the testimonials of those at the event and the stories of the late Gérard Weidlich had me thrilled, but to be sure of everything, I met a professor from the Rangueil Hospital in Toulouse who confirmed everything to me.

While taking the Beljanski extracts I mentioned above, on December 18, 2006, I was at the Poitiers University Hospital for a doctor, very renowned in his field, to give me brachytherapy (natural injection of radioactive implants). I underwent brachytherapy on the 18th at 1pm and I returned to Niort on December 19, 2006 and found myself at home without the slightest problem.

On the other hand, two other patients who underwent brachytherapy the same day had unpleasant reactions to the therapy. I truly believe the Beljanski extracts was the difference for me.

Since 2008, my PSA level has been 0.1. and no problems. I can only recommend Beljanski.

Without this research and information, I would have had prostate surgery, would no longer have natural erections, and might be incontinent or leak, so I would be traumatized.

Without Beljanski during radiation, I would surely have been affected by the side effects. Thankfully I am as perfect as I was before my illness :)

If I've been a little long, it is to help you better.

In conclusion, Thank you Mirko and The Beljanski Foundation, thank you Gérard and Pilou who put me on the right track... you guided my fight and I feel happy to have been able to take my health into my hands and to have succeeded in this hellish journey...

Now, I have been in total remission for 13 years, PSAs are consistently between 0.5 and 1 ng.

Marcel H: Prostate Cancer

7 years of hindsight.

June to October: construction of a small vacation house to visit North America (the trip of my dreams). Life is Beautiful.

The following March: Everything is ready for departure: boarding of the vehicle on April 8 in Antwerp. At the beginning of the month, last medical check before departure: PSA level 6.41 ng / l and normal ultrasound (no tumor).

In mid-March, my attending physician went on an internship on undetectable cancers of the prostate. Back from training, she calls me in for a biopsy.

She has to tap into her pitch to convince me to do it.

We are 3 weeks before departure. The biopsy was performed on March 22ng. We had the results on April 2: the right lobe of the prostate was completely affected (9 out of 9 samples were positive) with Gleason index cancer (4 + 3).

Catastrophe > life changes, we are crushed, the trip is canceled.

We go from doctor to doctor and search the internet. One night, my wife thinks of François Mitterrand and his prostate cancer.

She gets up and searches the google. We discover the Beljanski Foundation. The following day, we phoned the foundation and then Maison Beljanski in New York to order the extracts: Pao pereria and Rauwolfia vomitoria. The medical visits continue as I got an MRI in St. Nazaire, on May 9 > the cancer crossed the prostate wall (we are panicked); on May 13, bone scintigraphy in Nantes > good news: no damage to the skeleton.

During our visits to the doctor, we confirmed I would get prostate surgery. We must first go through the oncology consultation meeting in St. Nazaire which, for a prostatic adenocarcinoma classified T2NX Mo Gleason 4 + 3, but probably a T3 classification on the right, suggests:

  • Standard treatment:
    Hormone therapy and Radiotherapy.
  • Optional treatment:
    Surgery with lymph node dissection > depending on the result, additional postoperative radiotherapy will probably be necessary.

Obviously, I am taking the optional treatment (the operation) with the Beljanski treatment in secret. On June 18, I had an operation and have been on Pao V FM® (Pao pereria) and Rovol (Rauwolfia vomitoria) for 20 days.

Following the operation, I have a nosocomial infection and I remain hospitalized for 11 days instead of the 4 planned (result: weight loss = 7Kg).

During a visit, the surgeon informs me that the removed lump has been analyzed and that unfortunately radiation therapy will be necessary.

I continue the Beljanski treatment. At the end of July, the first blood test after the operation gave a PSA of 0.03ng / l. The surgeon is surprised: he expected a rate greater than 0.7ng / l.

He suggested that I join a study (Gétug 17: radiotherapy and hormone therapy with Decapeptyl LP). I refuse in view of my PSA level. On October 23, I have an appointment with the Nantes oncologist.

In the waiting room, he tells me that he begins with information before the consultation.
I give him my last PSA rate = 0.04ng / l. He is surprised and tells me that, in my case, French researchers are trying a new treatment...

I recognized Getug 17. I tell him and confirm my opposition. Immediately he gets up and I won't have a look. Since then, I have continued the Beljanski treatment.

I made my dream come true: 18 months in North America. Beljanski extracts have been delivered to me across Canada and the U.S.A. without a problem.

I live normally but I am more careful with my diet now (almost vegetarian) and stopped drinking alcohol. The last PSA rate was done in Mexico: 0.04ng / l. We go home and the rate suddenly increased: 0.08ng / l. We asked ourselves a lot of questions.

Recurrence: The examinations start again: scanner, MRI, scintigraphy. In the meantime, I have changed doctors. The scan showed that the bones were not affected. The oncologist gives me Fluorocholine (positron emission tomography) to target very precisely the areas of recurrence.

The result shows that the 2 positive margins on the urethra, which are not vascularized, generated cancer cells in the pelvic lymph nodes.

The only treatment offered is a study: the Getug P07 protocol (6-month hormone therapy and radiotherapy with a maximum of 74Gy: 37 sessions).

The sessions were carried out between October 1 and the end of November. I had some side effects.

Secondary: drop in white blood cells and joint pain. I continued the Beljanski treatment throughout the treatment adding Ginkgo for the effects of the radiotherapy.

The drop in white blood cells is due to radiation therapy near the pelvis. To overcome this problem, I did a treatment with RNA fragments (RealBuild®).

My PSA levels for next two years is 0.00ng / l.

I continue the Beljanski products as a 2-month treatment with a 3-month break. Still having a problem with white blood cells (due to radiotherapy to the pelvis), I take RNA Fragments all winter long.

Thank you Beljanski Foundation for listening to me. Thank you to the doctors who support my decision to use the Beljanski extracts.

Prostate Cancer: 14 years later

I waited 18 months to tell you my story... As every year, as part of a medical follow-up since I was 50 years old, I have a blood test, PSA levels checked and a prostate exam.

On July 22, 2004, the results of the blood test gives us an increase in PSA from 4 to 5.57. My GP prescribed an ultrasound of my prostate.

This is done on August 2, 2004, the day of my 68th birthday. The radiologist tells me that he sees an abnormality in the left lobe and that my case is under the advice of a urologist. In August, it's not very easy to find a urologist. Finally an appointment was made for August 26th.

After a rectal exam, the doctor wanted to perform a biopsy which was done on September 7th (8 samples) and on September 16, the result showed: adenocarcinoma with Gleason index 4 × 3. The sky suddenly fell on my head.

A hormonal treatment was decided for my case: pills + injection every 3 months. On September 29, a bone scan was performed: no abnormalities (relief).

Remembering an article in a health journal about the work of Professor Beljanski and the case of Gérard Weidlich, I searched the internet for all the contact details. After making contact with The Beljanski Foundation, CIRIS and Gérard Weidlich, I decided to treat myself with the Beljanski method.

Since October 16, 2004, I have been taking Pao pereira +  Rauwolfia vomitoria every day. On February 15, 2005, my blood test showed my PSA dropped from 5.57 to 0.10 and on the ultrasound the radiologist could not find anything visible.

I'm so happy. My blood results from 01/26/2010 are perfect. Today I'm fine, my tests are good and I have a check-up every year.

My thanks to the volunteers of CIRIS and The Beljanski Foundation who spend their time for the good of our fellow citizens. A big thank you to the late Gérard Weidlich who worked so hard to have the work of Mirko Beljanski recognized.

Evidence of a drop in PSA levels

Long-time friend with a person who worked alongside Professor Mirko Beljanski, my wife and I support The Beljanski Foundation, which works for the rehabilitation of this great scientist.

Following a visit to my physician, we learned my PSA levels were "6.10" (I was 71 years old at the time).

Nothing to worry about in his opinion as long as my PSA levels did not continue to raise. If they did, I would be diagnosed with prostate cancer. I did not want to leave anything to chance, so I set up a preventive treatment with Rauwolfia vomitoria (ROVOL V). See the chart below for my results.

Since then my PSA levels have been great and as for my attending physician, we have not had to talk about prostate cancer ever again :)

Testimonial endoscopic resection of the prostate cancer testimonial headshot

Testimonial endoscopic resection of the prostate

I am a retired radiologist. I am seventy-seven. In 1999, I underwent transurethral resection of the prostate. This was clinically suspicious and my PSA levels rose to 18.

I have been treated since 1982 for chest pain and have suffered from arrhythmia for more than two years. Additionally I am amoebic with significant sigmoid diverticulosis with outbreaks of diverticulitis.

Last April I felt physically exhausted. My cardiologist decided to give me a complete humoral check-up which shows a PSA level of 28.7. I decided to get a second opinion with the urologist who operated on me in 99. The ultrasound he performed showed a hard nodule 3 cm in diameter and I decided to go for consultation with an oncologist.

Being a French citizen, I have of course heard of Dr. Beljanski; I know that his products in 1994 perked up Francois Mitterand, our former president, while he was basically on his death bed. I thought what was good for this old scoundrel couldn't be bad for me so I immediately call The Beljanski Foundation. I am given the contact details of a doctor from La Manche who is familiar with Beljanski. In less than 48 hours, I have the extracts and I start treatment without further delay. CT scan did not show any spread of the cancer. Three weeks after starting to take the extracts, I see my oncologist who told me that my cancer was severe and that I only had five or six years to live. This of course very nicely wrapped and he was right, because I have to admit that I was not very daring. No surgery, no radiation therapy either, given the state of my cancer so he offered me hormone therapy. I wince because it forces me to remove the Rauwolfia vomitoria.

He checks my PSA and it came down to 27.3. After three weeks, that is not significant, but I still want to see it as a sign of encouragement.

So here I am with my hormonal treatment, my Pao pereira and my Golden Leaf of Ginkgo biloba.

Very quickly I experienced unbearable itchiness and rashes all over my body. After a month they diminish in intensity and eventually disappear as the hot flashes set in and in turn become unbearable.

At the end of August, I have to do another hormone injection. I don't want to.

Dialogue Collection - Collection N ° 1

The PSA levels fell to 3. I asked the doctor in La Manche for his opinion. He encouraged me to quit hormone therapy so I could resume taking Pao pereira, Rauwolfia vomitoria and Golden Leaf of Ginkgo biloba.

At the end of November my oncologist is in disbelief. My tumor has basically disappeared and my PSA levels are normal. And, miraculously, I only get up once in the night. The hot flashes went away as my body detoxified from the hormonal treatment. Of course I sleep better and I am feeling much better.

I will, of course, continue taking the extracts. How long? I do not know. It will depend on my body. At least I have the advantage of being able to order a lab test myself. In three months I will be doing a new PSA test. There is no reason why it shouldn’t be as good as the last one.

Thanks to Dr. Beljanski. Thank you to CIRIS and The Beljanski Foundation. Thank you to the lovely lady who so kindly received and provided me with information over the phone.

Thank you Beljanski Foundation.


Bladder and prostate cancer testimonial headshot

Bladder and prostate cancer testimonial

To tell the truth, I would like to give one more testimonial in favor of the work of The Beljanski Foundation. At the age of 64, I had my prostate removed. After this operation, the examinations revealed no signs of a malignant tumor. Unfortunately, 5 years later, as part of my medical exam carried out by the urology department of the Bordeaux University Hospital, here were the results:

  1. Relating to the bladder: non-papillary urothelial carcinoma infiltrating part of the sub epithelial chorion, respecting muscle tissue within the limits of the samples with a fairly high degree of scalability. This is a grade IV, stage PT1 tumor.
  2. Relating to the prostate: presence in one of the samples from a right prostate biopsy, of a focus of adenosis next to which there are three small glands, probably carcinomatous.

Following this precise diagnosis, both the doctors in Bordeaux and in Paris that I had consulted, suggested that I try a treatment. On July 15 we decided to implement this treatment at the rate of one instillation of BCG per week for 5 weeks, then one per month for 4 months, and finally one per quarter for a year.

The results from the exam came back positive so the injections were becoming less and less frequent. What the doctors did not know was that at the same time as this treatment, I was taking Rauwolfia vomitoria.

Another anecdote from this happy man...

On a Sunday in June, my daughter Ghislaine had also gone for a walk during the day at this event. She walked up to one of the booths at the event to find out more about cancer and AIDS. Knowing that I had very serious health problems and wishing to help me, she bought me Dr. Beljanski's book “Confiscated Health” as a gift.

Without the work of The Beljanski Foundation and Dr. Beljanski, I would probably not be here today to be able to talk about the effectiveness of the Beljanski products, and in particular of Rauwolfia vomitoria to control prostate cancer. Additionally here is what my doctor said following a medical exam the following July:

"It's wonderful, I tell you that there is nothing left!" "So!" I said to him, "It's a miracle!" And the doctor very surprised, but unaware that I had taken the Beljanski products, concluded by nodding his head: "A miracle. Yes thankfully sometimes we get lucky and a miracle happens!"

As a preventive measure, and to avoid any possible relapse, I still take Rauwolfia vomitoria and Pao pereira every day.

Now I am enjoying being healthy again and am still in great shape! Some time later a PSA check alarmed my doctor and he was considering an operation within a month. Immediately after this bad news I doubled the usual dosages of "Beljanski" products on my own initiative. Just before going to my appointment I had my attending physician recheck my PSA levels... The Laboratory Director himself surprised by the result which showed a return to health. The lab telephoned my doctor to find out the name of the revolutionary treatment that caused this astonishing improvement. My surprised doctor told him that he hadn't been able to prescribe anything for me because he was due to see me again in the next few days, but he told him: "I think he's taking Beljanski! At these words the Director of the laboratory laughed. Then came the day of the appointment with my doctor who said to me at the outset: "You have seen your last results, but it is incredible, it is magnificent... so what happened? "I said to him, "You know very well that I take Beljanski." "Ah yes!" He said and laughed too .. So I laughed too, but not for the same reasons those two "specialists" did.

Once again I got through this problem very well on my own. Soon these sneers will be laughing yellow, as they say, when scientific confirmations arrive from the USA. Thank you, Dr. Beljanski for all the luck you have given me and I do not understand how in a democratic country, the government can block the media from letting the people know about such crucial discoveries, and that we can push a researcher to the limit in order to let him self-destruct in the face of constant harassment...
