Colin from New Zealand, was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer, a very slow progressing disease that is only found in men. After learning about Integrative Treatments and Verita Life through his cousin in Hong Kong, the 58 year old decided to pack his bags and travel to Bangkok for treatment.
As part of his comprehensive treatment package, Curcumin, Vitamin C and ALA injections are some of the treatments he received during his three week stay in Thailand. Impressively, Colin notes that there have been no side effects at all.
What is Prostate Cancer?
Prostate Cancer usually develops slowly, so there may be no signs you have it for many years.
Prostate Cancer symptoms often only become apparent when your prostate is large enough to affect the urethra (the tube that carries urine from the bladder to the penis).
When this happens, you may notice things like an increased need to urinate, straining while urinating and a feeling that your bladder has not fully emptied.
The causes of Prostate Cancer are largely unknown. However, certain things can increase your risk of developing the condition.
The chances of developing prostate cancer increase as you get older. Most cases develop in men aged 50 or older.
For reasons not yet understood, Prostate Cancer is more common in men of African-Caribbean or African descent, and less common in men of Asian descent.
Men who have first degree male relatives (such as a father or brother) affected by prostate cancer are also at slightly increased risk.
Unfortunately, there is also no single test for the disease. All the tests used to help diagnose the condition have benefits and risks.The most commonly used tests for Prostate Cancer are blood tests, a physical examination of your prostate (known as a digital rectal examination or DRE) and a biopsy.
The blood test, known as a prostate-specific antigen (PSA) test, measures the level of PSA and may help detect early prostate cancer. Men are not routinely offered PSA tests to screen for Prostate Cancer, as results can be unreliable.
Asked about his opinion on Verita Life, Colin confidently said, “Come here before you go to your doctor, come here.” He was also particularly impressed by the facilities and staff that attended to him and gave him a pleasant experience during his stay in Bangkok.
