At Holistic Medical Clinic Dr. Moran (who has had training by Prof Pfeifer in Switzerland) uses “the Pfeifer protocol” which was devised for treating hormone refractory Prostate Cancer using Nutritional supplements.
The protocol has been reported to produce a 50% reduction of PSA by 6 months in 70% of patients treated in Switzerland, with minimum side effects. In a trial of 194 patients with prostate cancer 2/3 had a 50% reduction in PSA values, a decrease in tumour volume, decrease in pain, and an improvement in quality of life. A follow up of 1250 patients over 6 years showed a 60% maintained reduction in PSA.
The Pfeifer Protocol is used as a complementary treatment along side existing orthodox medical or surgical treatments. It can also be used instead of “watchful waiting” in low Gleason score prostate cancer cases. The Pfeifer protocol is not a cure for prostate cancer, but a way of decreasing the PSA in 50% of cases and hopefully keeping the cancer in check.
The Protocol consists of four different products:
PROSTASOL a herbal food supplement containing herbs such as saw palmetto, pygeum, reish, ginger, nettle, skullcap, beta sisterol, camposterol, stimgasteraol, brassicasterol,quercetin, and others. Prostasol has an anti inflammatory, antioxidant and apoptotic effects on prostate cancer cells.
BIOBRAN is derived from rice bran and shitake mushrooms. It is a powerful immune stimulator and increases natural killer cells (NK cells) as well as T and B cells. The Biobran increases macrophage activity leading to an increase in TNF alpha and IL 6, this therefore increases the immune system.
CURCUMIN COMPLEX contains the potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant curcumin found in the spice tumeric, plus resveratrol.
IMUPROS is a blend of nutritional supplements with vitamins, trace elements, ginseng, lycopene and green tea extract together with selenium, vitamin C, D and E.
