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.


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.

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


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."

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.”
