Peter was diagnosed in 2004, age 61 - I think he said Gleason 7 with a low PSA (not that that is always a useful measure - see my previous blog here). He opted out of traditional treatments, surgery, radiation, and drugs, and instead explored alternative methods to defeating his prostate cancer. In the process this led him to making the film which was frequently broadcast on Public Service Stations in the US. He also now says he doesn't think he would have had a biopsy had he known (see my blog on biopsies here).
Robert Verkerk PhD of the Alliance of Natural Health wrote of the DVDs in 2012 (ii), "When I eventually found the space to watch the movie, I quickly realised just what a feat Peter had accomplished. From the sheer amount of information and advice, from the quality, breadth and range of clinician, researcher and patient’s views amalgamated, to the immaculate computer graphics used to help men to understand both how prostate cancer develops and how it is typically."
In the interview with Robin Daly, Peter shared some of his journey with a complete change in his diet and lifestyle plus some of the new treatments since the film like HIFU and Photodynamic Therapy that are increasingly available. Peter is very soon to publish a up-to-date book 'Prostate Cancer: Why We Get It, What To Do About it’ (iii) which will present the latest developments in treating prostate cancer and apparently will lay out a case for avoiding traditional treatments. He is, however also very clear, as he says at the end of the DVD, “You can change the outcome of your disease by changing your lifestyle. But none of what you have learned from this documentary should take the place of consulting a qualified physician.”
