I'm in the process of reading "How Not to Die," by Michael Greger, MD. It was rated # 6 on the New York Times bestseller list in January of this year.
Does the book address prostate issues? Yes - both directly and indirectly. Chapter 13 is entitled, "How Not to Die from Prostate Cancer." My theory, and I could be wrong, is that a change in lifestyle that's conducive to staving off prostate cancer, could also be relevant to mitigating symptomatic BPH. His theory, and I'm sure he's right, is that there is an overall synergy to good health. In other words, he's of the opinion for example that diet and lifestyle changes that affect cardiovascular health will, in all probability, reduces the chances of getting a neurodegenerative disease. The book focuses on overall health and, as the title implies, it offers extremely good advice on avoiding the 15 leading causes of death, of which PCa is one. The book cites the word prostate 49 times.
Not to make wild claims, but I've been following his advice for 14 days, and I've definitely noticed some improvement. Lost four pounds. Stream is noticeably stronger. Nocturia has somewhat abated, but still a problem. FYI - I take daily Cialis and dutasteride, along with saw palmetto as an adjuvant.
He truly is a non-profit guy. His website is nutritionfacts.org and it's excellent. If you are interested in the book, it may be available as an audio CD from your local library. Mine was. Finally, it's my intent to stay with this lifestyle change, at least for the foreseeable future. Take my comments for what they're worth. Maybe these ideas might help someone. I'll update in six weeks.
