Vitamins and Prostate Cancer

Prostate Cancer:
Prostate Cancer, Advanced State

My testimonial is to share vital knowledge regarding the most common cancer among men. Prostate cancer is a malignancy of the prostate gland. It's created by unregulated replication of cells which create tumors, with the possibility of spreading to other areas (metastasis).

There are times when this disease can be contained through surgery and times it may be too far advanced for surgery and is life threatening. In my case the cancer had spread.

Please stay tuned because through intense prayer and God's guidance, I was led down the correct path to a healthy recovery.

On January 24th, 2005, I met with my urologist and left with little information and 3 pamphlets on prostate cancer. Blood tests and biopsies had revealed a spread malignancy and a PSA level of an astonishing 416, where 4 is considered dangerous! My wife Chris and I realized we had a battle to fight! And believe it or not I am a high school basketball coach who had just led his team through districts to the State Championship at the Dome in Tacoma, Wa.

Our situation was very serious and I was given a life expectancy of 2 to 5 years. Chris and I went to our den for prayer. Immediately God moved. My sister Sharon, called with a scripture (John 9:3). Another sister, Pat Wenger, called with the number of a Chiropractor in the Portland, Oregon area who specializes in better health through food and supplements. My other two sisters Barb and Joan also called with encouraging words of faith.

My Oncologist suggested chemotherapy or hormone treatment or possibly both through a clinical trial at a local hospital. However, after my conversation with Dr. Brouse (the nutritionist from Oregon) I decided not to do the chemotherapy. He said he has 30 or so clients with prostate cancer and several have been with him over 20 years (some outlived their doctors)!! I needed to hear this and am so glad to be working with Dr. Brouse.

Here is the overall protocol that we felt led to follow:

1- Maintain a positive outlook supported by prayer, praise, worship and reading the Word of God.
2- Deny chemotherapy, but take a mild hormone treatment as surgery was not an option in my advanced state.
3- A Total Nutrition Program including food and supplements

On June 2, 2005 I had my second blood test. My previously negative doctor called with news he called "amazingly good!" My PSA level had dropped from 416 to 7.3 in such a very short time that my prognosis was greatly improved!

By the way, we won 2 games at the state finals, losing on the 3rd day and taking a 7th place trophy.

Here are the supplements recommended by Dr. Brouse to battle prostate cancer;

I took these for 90 days

12 GLA
18 alfalfa
9 vita lea
12 C's
4 E's
3 herb lax
3 carotomax
3 B's
4 garlic
9 liver detox
9 tbs soy protein.

I divided them up to take 3 times a day. I also included some stress tablets in the mix.

After 30 days I cut back a little, but not too much. I don't dare take a chance with my life!!


Alan, Monroe, Wa.

Update: Alan recently had a physical checking 10 other areas such as blood pressure, cholesterol, liver, colon, etc. Some of which he had problems in the past. All tests came out normal. The instructions he followed from Dr Brouse for cancer helped the other areas as well. He feels great & expects to live a long time!

wheel chair racing

Chris Waddell:

You may remember Chris Waddell from the 1996 summer games, where he was featured as a three-time world champion in wheel chair racing. You also might remember him from the 1998 winter games, competing as a four-time world champion monoskier. In Sydney 2000, he represented the U.S. for the second time in six different track events. He competed in the 100, 200, 400, 800, the 4x100 relay and the 4x400 relay.

All this accomplished with the help of Shaklee nutritional supplements."

human-powered flight

Kanellos Kanopoulos:

In 1988, Kanellos Kanopoulos had only one fuel for his record-breaking seventy-two mile human-powered flight from Crete to Santorini - the maximum endurance sports drink developed by Shaklee with Ethan Nadel of Yale University.

Later marketed as Performance(R), it is now a leading product of Shaklee's sports nutritional line. The drink's mix of electrolytes and carbohydrates provided easy-to-absorb muscle fuel and quickly replaced the pilot's lost fluids."

Shaklee & ADD/ADHD Inquiry

"Below is a recommended nutrition program for ADD/ADHD and a couple of testimonials on how Shaklee's wellness products were used to achieve great results with ADD/ADHD diagnosed children. I hope these stories give you hope. Many children experience dramatic positive changes when families starting using Shaklee cleaning and nutritional products.

Recommended Nutrition Program for ADD/ADHD
Shaklee Vita-Lea Multivitamin (Children Chewable)
Shaklee Energizing Protein or Meal Shakes for Kids
Shaklee Optiflora System
Shaklee B-Complex
Shaklee Mental Acuity Complex
Shaklee Gentle Sleep Complex
Shaklee GLA Complex
Shaklee Moodlift (optional)

Use Gentle Sleep Complex during the day---see how he/she responds---if no response increase the amount for several days and evaluate. Many kids do quite well on Gentle Sleep Complex. ADD, ADHD, LD, and the rest of the alphabet often have an enzyme deficiency at the conversion point of dihomogamma lilnolenic acid to GLA as a result they have little GLA. Often the extra GLA Complex does the trick.

ADD Testimonial #1:

My story begins 4 years ago. I had a son. We named him Braden. When he was about 1 month old he started crying, and he cried constantly. I had to hold him 16 hours a day. He didn’t like swings, car seats, nothing. He wasn’t an average child. He would never cry himself to sleep. He would cry for hours, and until you picked him up he would not stop. When he turned 6 months old, he started crawling and stopped crying. He was on the move. The day he learned how to crawl he learned how to pull himself up on everything. He was into everything. At 1 year old he learned how to push chairs and items around to stand on, to get to what he wanted. He would get on my kitchen countertops and pour all the cereal out of the boxes onto the floor and then stomp on it until it was smashed. At this point it was impossible to keep him out of anything.

One day he found a screwdriver and methodically took everything apart in my house. On another day we had put a lock on the screen that was on our sliding glass doors so that he couldn’t get outside when we were not in the room. He found the screwdriver in the top kitchen cupboard and pried the wheel off the track so that he could push it open at the bottom.

When he was 2, our doctor started worrying about his weight and sent me to Rileys Children’s Hospital. He was and is very small for his age. We met with Doctor Charmain Quigley. She is a endocrinology specialist. She did checks on Braden 4 different times. Each time spending at least 45 minutes. Of course, Braden was out of control the whole time. We couldn’t take him anywhere without him being out of control. After all the blood tests, bone studies, and urine genetic screens, she diagnosed him as Attention Deficit/Hyperactive. Her statement to me was, Braden is a classic case. Unfortunately, at this age we do not put children on the strong medications, so you will have to wait until he gets into school, and he will be sent back to us and we will put him on Ritalin or Cylert. When I asked her what I could do to avoid the medication, she told me there is no known cause or help. You see, to diagnose ADD/ADHD they have a list of symptoms. If your child tests negative for any other disorder but he has like 12 of the 15 symptoms, they diagnose him as ADD/HD.

I went on a desperate search for help. I didn’t want him on the medication. I visited with 4 other doctors -- a child psychologist, a neurologist, an early intervention team -- they are a group of specialists, and they diagnosed Braden as sensory integration problems and gifted. All pretty much had the same diagnoses.

My Stepmother had been with Shaklee for a while, and she kept after me to try it. I was very skeptical, and so I would smile nod and humor her. I did buy him the multi-vitamin. But it didn’t do anything for him. I went to the library and started reading books about it. First I found one by Dr. Feingold. He said many food allergies could and would cause reactions similar to ADD/HD. I changed Braden’s whole diet. Some of the foods are red food colorings, flour, milk, cocoa, sugar, BHA, BHT, and many preservatives.

None of this helped Braden. I finally came across a book on chemicals we use in our Shop. A lot of them listed learning disabilities, and mental problems, inability to concentrate. So I called up my step mom and told her to bring me the laundry stuff. (The book had chlorine listed as the #1 problem.) Well, Braden didn’t change, so I started switching my cleaners one by one. The last one I switched was Mountain Fresh Mr. Clean. I had used it since long before Braden was born because I loved the way it smelled. AFTER CLEANING WITH SHAKLEE’S BASIC-H AND BASIC-G BRADEN WAS ALMOST INSTANTLY A DIFFERENT CHILD. I cleaned with Shaklee for a while and Braden was pretty much a normal child. He would sit and watch a cartoon -- which he never ever watched anything. He would sit and color with me. He was able to concentrate long enough to do a puzzle. I am a dog groomer by trade. I groom from my Shop, and from the time Braden was born I had to have a sitter. For the first time, Braden was doing well enough that I didn’t need one. He would play or watch a movie, and when it was done, he would come down to me. He was 3 then. It takes me a half hour to finish a dog and so many times Braden would go play in his room.

I ran out of Basic-H, and being the skeptic that I am, I used what I had left of the Mr. Clean. I cleaned in the morning and then sat Braden down to watch a movie so I could finish a dog. I left the room. In that 30 minutes, Braden climbed up on my counter, poured every box of cereal, rice, oatmeal, sugar, flour and whatever else he could find all over the floor. Then he stomped in it. Then he went to his room, emptied out his toy box, book shelf, and dresser drawers, opened every game and poured it out. Then he went to my desk and poured out every drawer. I have a collection of ceramic, stone, and crystal figurines. He went to these next and began smashing them. When I came up stairs, he had a hammer he had gotten from our garage and was attempting to smash one that would not break by throwing it on the floor.

Needless to say, I cried, and then I recleaned the whole house with Shaklee. Braden has not had an outburst like this since. It has been a year. I do not use anything but Shaklee now. He does take B-complex. And Chewable Calcium Magnesium, Vita-C, and Children’s Vita-Lea. I also give him EPA. I grind everything but his C and his Vita-Lea up in a Meal Shake. I usually add frozen strawberries and it makes it great. All of my neighborhood kids come to my house for them. There is a child neurologist around here that is recommending Shaklee B-complex and Cal Mag for his patients. I wish I had gone to him. But it’s okay. My son is still active but not out of control. I do notice when I take him to church on Sunday that I can see the old Braden coming out. So you see, I shudder at the day when he will start school. I know it will be a fight. But I know the answer. This is my story. People need to know there are other options. And we need to start fighting for our children. Hope this helps.

ADD/ADHD Testimonial #2:

My daughter Robin was diagnosed with ADHD. After more than a year of doctors, learning labs, psychologists and specialists, I was sent home with a prescription for Ritalin. I came home and sat down at the kitchen table, put my head down and prayed: "Dear God, am I doing the right thing for my child? Won't you help me help her?" The Lord answered me with great peace and the assurance that all would be well. Before I realized what I had done, I stood over the garbage can ripping the Ritalin prescription in to tiny pieces. The Lord comforted me saying that if I trusted Him, He would give me an answer. With all the faith inside me I continued to look up.

The following week, the conversation came up on two different occasions while working in my office regarding nutrition and learning disabilities mentioning that Shaklee products seemed to work the best. I began to feel like there must be something this Shaklee thing when my girlfriend who is a dental hygienist popped into my office and said "Hey, I had a patient tell me today that she has a child with ADHD and she put the child on some vitamins called Shaklee. Thought you should know this...gotta run"! By this time I knew what God was telling me and I immediately grabbed the phone book to find the name of a Shaklee distributor. I called Geri Frusterio and said "My name is Angie Easley and I need some vitamins for my little girl who has ADHD. Can I come over right away?" Geri helped me design a program for Robin that included: Meal Shake, Vita Lea, B Complex, Cal Mag, GLA, Zinc and CorEnergy.

The results were unbelievable. My husband could not believe such immediate results! (I told him that when you take Tylenol for a headache, you don't wait six weeks for it to work). The difference in Robin's behavior and learning abilities was amazing.

To prove to myself that it was the vitamins and not just Robin maturing and learning on her own I decided to put it to the test. Robin's teacher gave the class their spelling words for the week on Monday, tested them on Friday, with a pre-test on Thursday. So from Monday to Thursday, I did not give Robin any supplements. It was a rough week. She was very irritable and hard to get along with. She cried over every little thing and would tell me when I picked her up from school that she had had a bad day and nobody liked her. I knew what was going on...but I had to complete my test. Robin's teacher also sent notes Shop saying that she had difficulty staying in her seat; she squirmed a lot and spoke out of turn frequently in class. The child was miserable. On Thursday, she took her spelling pre-test.

On Friday morning, I gave her morning vitamins and Meal Shake before she went to school. She took her spelling test. When she brought her work home, I was not at all surprised. Without vitamins in Robin's system, the Thursday test showed that she was dyslexic, missed every spelling word, and was unable to perform at her grade level! The Friday test was perfect. The difference was just astounding.

In addition to learning problems, Robin also suffered leg cramps, waking up two or three times each week crying in pain. My mother called them growing pains, and I had had them as a child too. From the day I started Robin on the vitamins, she had one bad night the first week...and has not had a single episode for over a year!

Robin calls B Complex her spelling pill and her CorEnergy her soccer-playing pills. Parents and teachers: Vitamin therapy does not require your children's kidneys and liver to be checked every 6 months as does Ritalin and Cylert! How can you give those drugs to your children? Vitamin therapy works! Try it!

The Shaklee Difference

My Health Recovery Miracles

I'm going to start with my Fibromyalgia because that is the disease that took five years away from my life.

In the summer of 2000 I developed severe Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. My entire life changed within three months. My muscles suddenly lost almost all of their strength and I couldn't lift a gallon jug of milk from the refrigerator unless it was more than half empty. The pain and stiffness was so bad that I had difficulty even getting dressed in the morning and I had to spend most of my day on the couch or in a wheelchair when I went out. I couldn't drive myself anywhere for months at a time because of the pain and weakness in my arms and legs. With determination, I overcame the worst of this disorder, but I still had extreme pain and fatigue that severely limited my daily activities. With the help of Shaklee products in my program, after a few short months, I am now almost pain-free and am able to walk two miles a day and shop for hours at a time in the mall without a wheelchair. It is now June, 2005, and my life has totally changed. Now my goal in life is to help others with this terrible, debilitating disease.

I want to tell you about the wonderful things Shaklee has done for my health that no Doctor or store product ever did. I've been allergic to all fruits and vegetables since I was 12 years old. The symptoms started with swelling and itching of my mouth, tongue and gums. Over the years, the symptoms became worse and I would get canker sores in my mouth that lasted for weeks, get terrible stomach pains and even vomit. The older I got the worse the reactions became and by my late 20's I had to totally stay away from fruits or vegetables and carry an Epi-Pen with me in case of emergency anaphylactic reactions. My symptoms were so severe that my food at home had to be prepared separately, using clean cookware and utinsels so that no juices from these foods got into or touched my food. As an example, mayonnaise has a small amount of lemon juice in it, and using any on a sandwich made me ill.

As a result of searching for a good nutrition product because of the lack of nutrients from my diet, I met Brenda McCumons, an RN, in early Fall of 2004. Brenda uses purely natural products from Shaklee and had worked with people with food allergies, but none as severe as mine. I was unsure if I could take Shaklee products because they are Whole Food Concentrates. With Brenda's teaching on how to crush the tablets and take small amounts, I started on a program that has now totally changed my life. I did have some reactions to the products, but just some mouth swelling, and I was determined to put up with it and continue trying. It was well worth the effort. Within two weeks the swelling was gone and by Christmas, within two months of starting on Shaklee, my food allergies were gone. It was amazing!

Another health problem that I had had since I was 20 was occasional pain and irritation in my bladder and urethra and frequent bladder infections. In the summer of 2000 the pain became constant and I had blood in my urine. I was finally diagnosed with Interstitial Cystitis. IC can cause urgency, frequency and pain. I had constant bladder pain for five years. At times it was so bad that I was couch-bound. I had read about a supplement that was good for IC, so I had been taking it for months, but noticed no difference. In April, 2005, I switched brands of that supplement to Shaklee's. I couldn't believe what happened. My bladder pain disappeared within a week of starting the Shaklee's brand. I have some light pain occasionally, but for the most part, the pain is gone.

I am also recovered from years of chronic sinusitis. My allergies have improved and so has my asthma. My Irritable Bowel Syndrome is under control, as is my acid reflux and heartburn from a herniated LES in my stomach. These supplements are also helping me control my lifetime of Benign Familial Tremor and Restless Leg Syndrome, which I started to need medication for at age 20. I have been on a dozen medications daily for most of my life and now, July, 2005, I am down to two. They are very low doses for my neurological disorders. My doctor is amazed at my recoveries. Feel free to contact me with any questions at

Shaklee has superior standards when choosing their raw materials and creating their products. They spend millions of dollars testing their products to be sure of the purity, safety and performance. The FDA does not require these tests to be done, therefore regular supplement companies do not have or spend the funds for these safety tests. Shaklee is the only company that uses Whole Food Concentrates and has patents on many of their products and processes. They are licensed by the United States as a Food Processor and they guarantee what is printed on the label is in the bottle. I had been taking many supplements for years, but it was DIFFERENCE in the QUALITY of Shaklee's supplements that made my body respond the way it did.

The human body is miraculous in the fact that if you give it the proper nutrients it can help itself to heal. I am living proof of that fact. Do your body a favor by giving it the best of what it really needs. Whether you have current health problems or wish to prevent them, Shaklee can help strengthen your immune system so that it can help itself. You can contact me at or check out these products for yourself at . I would love to be able to help you or someone you love live a longer, healthier life.
