Damaging prostate treatment could turn your brain to mush
The most important thing in a man's life besides his family isn't his money, his job or even his favorite sports team.
It's what you'll find right below his belt!
In fact, the relationship between a man and his plumbing is SO important that just two little words could send him into a panic worse than if he'd suddenly lost all his money AND his job on the same day his team moved out of town.
Those two little words are, of course, prostate cancer. And as soon as they leave the doctor's lips even the smartest of men will do the dumbest of things, and I don't mean clearing out the retirement account to fulfill some bucket-list fantasy.
No, the dumb move comes from actually listening to his doctor -- when he blindly rushes into getting a harmful treatment for a harmless tumor. And when it comes to harmful treatments for prostate cancer, the worst of the lot might be hormone therapy.
This treatment robs you of testosterone and practically turns you into a girl, minus the dress (but you might end up getting fitted for a bra since "man boobs" is a possible side effect).
And the risks don't end with diminished manliness. Testosterone is also a key BRAIN hormone, which is why new research finds hormone therapy can leave you foggier than London.
Within six months of treatment, you could suffer from memory loss, confusion, difficulty concentrating and even problems with learning, according to the new study.
Some men hadn't recovered by the end of the yearlong study -- and who knows, for them, the brain damage could even be permanent.
What's especially terrible about this is that even many mainstream doctors now admit that hormone therapy is just about the WORST possible way to treat prostate cancer.
But some docs have made a career out of specializing in it, and they're not about to learn any new tricks now. Since studies show many men don't get second opinions, too many still get hoodwinked into hormone therapy without ever knowing they had other options... including the option to do NOTHING.
Fact is, most prostate tumors are 100 percent harmless and don't even need to be screened, much less treated. And if you've got a rare tumor that does need attention, you've got much better options.
Seek the advice of a naturopathic medical doctor experienced in cancer care. I recommend a member of the American College for Advancement in Medicine.
