The complete guide to coping with prostate cancer, with expert health advice for every man

This comprehensive handbook gives men the vital information they need to effectively navigate every step of dealing with prostate cancer. A newly diagnosed cancer patient faces a mind-numbing array of treatment options, including medical therapies that carry serious side effects—and determining the right course of action is an overwhelming task. In simple yet scientific terms, this book empowers readers with the tools they need to proactively fight cancer by making the most informed treatment decisions possible.

With groundbreaking developments recently emerging in both conventional and holistic prostate cancer research, it is imperative that men fighting this disease have the absolute latest information. As founder and director of the Center for Holistic Urology at Columbia University, Dr. Katz is uniquely positioned to guide readers through the new practices and breakthrough treatment options for every stage of the battle with cancer, from prevention to postdiagnosis.

One in six men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in his lifetime, and countless families will be affected by this widespread but ultimately curable disease. Armed with Dr. Katz’s expert guidance, patients will be equipped to actively participate in reclaiming their health and navigating this difficult diagnosis.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Truly Definitive and Highly Engaging 17. Oktober 2011
Von Charles R. Frazer - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
My urologist, Dr. Aaron Katz, has written a stellar book. Much more than a compendium of useful facts, his latest publication is a milestone in collecting, categorizing, and presenting the varied and often elusive information on prostate cancer and other prostate ailments.

For the newly diagnosed, it brings clarity to the breadth and depth of considerations that give patients solid ground on which to stand while making their decisions. For the previously treated (and often mistreated, sometimes horribly) he supplies new directions which join hope for the future with corrections (where possible) for the past. For the vulnerable (or "at risk" in medical speak), he provides clear directives on how to minimize, if not eliminate, the likelihood of incurring prostate cancer. For all, it reads with the same cadences of caring that I and his other patients hear when he counsels us.

His task is not easy. Long known as the "great imposter" of malignancies for its elusiveness in diagnosis and the will o' the wisp character of its treatment methods, prostate cancer confuses as it frightens-often producing a paralysis of fear which can leave afflicted men vulnerably exposed to unsuitable treatments and totally unaware of better alternatives.

Underlying all this, of course, are the twin major side effects of sexual dysfunction and urinary incontinence which provide non-stop anxiety attacks.

The reader of this book will benefit enormously from the superb detail with which Dr. Katz walks you through the entire diagnostic process, letting you know what diagnostic procedures can and can't do, giving a truly clear description of PSA ambiguities, and sharing with you his thinking as a practitioner when faced with unclear symptoms and cloudy diagnostic information.

Following diagnosis, including extent of cancer (Stage) and its aggressiveness (Gleason Score), Dr. Katz leads you through the labyrinths (yes, there is more than one) of deciding upon which treatment methods you will decide are appropriate for your situation.

In that respect, he gives one of the clearest short explanations of "Integrative Medicine" that you will ever see. Briefly, all medicine should be "evidence based". What we normally call "mainstream medicine" (more technically "allopathic medicine") aims to fix what's wrong. "Holistic medicine" begins by looking at a person as a whole, not just the bearer of a specific disease or injury, and attempts to heal by working in multiple dimensions. "Alternative medicine" includes specific "non-mainstream" disciplines as Naturopathy, Chinese Herbal Medicine, and Ayurvedic Medicine whose chief claim is to help the body heal itself, often in conjunction with specific dietary directives.

"Integrative Medicine", as defined by Dr. Katz, uses any or all of these methods provided that the terms of use are validated by proper evidence. That simple, but also that profound. For example, localized prostate cancer of mild aggressiveness (Gleason Score of 6 or less), may well not need any treatment more invasive than diet and appropriate nutritional remedies and herbal supplements. That approach, called "Active Holistic Surveillance", contains the cancer and provides superb quality of life.

Other cancers require more aggressive treatment methods such as surgery, radiation, or cryosurgery.

But whatever fits your circumstances is something which evidence shows is effective in terms of curative impact and provision for good quality of life (i.e. freedom from major side effects). And that evidence is drawn from the entire spectrum of treatment methods, not just those favored by one school of thought.

Dr. Katz is remarkable in stating his own biases and preferences clearly, while providing the reader with more than adequate information to decide if he is comfortable with the Katz approach or prefers another path. The book is saturated with the respect that the author has for patients and their care givers to participate fully and on an equal basis with any physician of their choice, and sees to it that those patients and care givers have the knowledge and the confidence to play their roles in the decision-making process.

Dr. Katz's most transformative contributions, which benefit both professionals and "ordinary" people, lie in his specifications for dietary practices, his detailed account of which nutritional supplements have satisfied the evidence-based criteria of his Center's clinical trials, and his recommendations for exercise and mind-body practices. Healthy diets, exercise, and stress reduction are not just good to prevent cancer and to assist in its treatment, but also to produce good heart and general health. Imagine how much happiness could be produced by preventing significant numbers of cancers, heart disease, and diabetes!

If these "preventive" methods succeed in your never getting prostate cancer, you may still find yourself with a benign but painfully swollen prostate (Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia or "BPH") or an infected prostate (Prostatitis). Here too, Dr. Katz provides clear and comprehensive information for diagnosis and treatment.

For now, his book is just what its title indicates it is: a definitive guide to both prostate cancer and methods to treat it (or hopefully to prevent it). Buy it with confidence for yourself and for those you love. Urge your primary care physician to read it and perhaps to recommend it to his or her patients, or even to stock it for them in the waiting room.

Looking to the future, I hope that he and his Center produce materials with comprehensive diet plans for a variety of situations-families, couples, and singles. There is still a lot to do to help people transform what they eat to promote health, and recipes for taste and flavor, portions for smaller living units (couples and singles) can help quite a bit.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The true authority of prostate cancer shares his wisdom 17. September 2011
Von Renac - Veröffentlicht auf
A diagnosis of prostate cancer is not what it used to be. This is why Dr. Katz's definitive and most contemporary guide is a MUST READ for anyone that has a family member or has been diagnosed with any stage of prostate cancer. No one can communicate with the authority and clarity of Dr. Katz. His brilliance and vast clinical experience from treating the most elite around the world can be life changing for others on many fronts.

After reading it, I know why Katz's book is cited by patients and physicians as "NEW BIBLE" for those that want to clearly understand overcoming this disease. While Dr. Katz has a large practice at Columbia hospital in NY I understand why this book is groundbreaking piece receiving global attention as an authority for patients, their families, and the physician community alike. A combination of the best empirical evidence and his most genius advice for both overcoming and coping with prostate cancer at all stages.

Dr. Katz communicates and treats the entire patient as well as the prostate to beat their diagnosis. A true must read for anyone that has the diagnosis or a relationship with someone that needs to have the greatest work of wisdom and support in conquering prostate cancer. Many physican insiders are sharing that the most respected Primary Care physicians are ordering this book for their offices to share with patients-- and I can certainly understand why! There is no better gift that will support one's journey. This book will save and enhance many lives. Thank you Dr. Katz.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Cannot recommend this book highly enough 17. September 2011
Von Philippa Cheetham - Veröffentlicht auf
I am a board certified urologist and cannot recommend this book highly enough to my patients with prostate cancer and their loved ones. This excellent book hot off the press is everything you need to know about prostate cancer and is one of the few books in the world that discusses what the patient can do to reduce their risk of progression or recurrence of the disease - it has a very comprehensive discussion of strategies for prostate cancer prevention clearly explaining the risks of foods that promote prostate cancer cell growth and foods that are prostate cancer protective. Not only is the book extremely informative about conventional treatments for prostate cancer, but what REALLY makes this book stand out above all other books on prostate cancer is the holistic approach to prostate cancer - giving the patient and his family a truly integrative approach to treating the disease. It is written in a way that is easy to understand and gives the reader a real sense of optimism and shows them how to take control of the disease - this is an essential read for any man with prostate cancer, any man who has a family history of prostate cancer or any man who wants to do everything he can to prevent getting the disease in the first place.

5.0 von 5 Sternen MEN'S HEALTH: UNDERSTOOD 16. September 2011
Von LISA EHRLICH RAPKN - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
Dr. Katz has once again done a great service to men and their loved ones by writing a book about prostrate cancer that is both easy to understand and totally comprehensive. In this simply written but scientifically sound book, Dr. Katz takes the reader through every phase of prostrate cancer, from prevention to post treatment. With his vast knowledge of integrative medicine, using both the conventional and holistic approaches to healing, Dr. Katz spells out not only everything about prostrate cancer but gives the reader a full understanding of the very specifics of mens health. I think we've found our "Men's Health Guru" in Dr. Katz and I urge everyone to read this book again and again to truly understand the complexities of men's health in our generation.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Very helpful, but not "the definitive guide" 18. August 2013
Von Randonneur - Veröffentlicht auf
This book is well-written, and it contains an abundance of helpful information and advice about prostate cancer, its prevention and its treatment.

The cover of the book announces that it is "THE DEFINITIVE GUIDE TO PROSTATE CANCER". That is just marketing puffery. Katz's book is certainly not a "definitive" guide. Dr. Walsh's book covers more topics and is much more detailed; in that respect, it is closer to being a "definitive guide". However, Katz's book provides a different perspective on the subject that complements Walsh's book quite well. I am pleased to have bought and read both of them. I don't think that anyone who is concerned with prostate cancer should consult only one source of information.

The value of Katz's book lies particularly in his "integrative" approach to prostate cancer. By "integrative", he means a combination of modern, mainstream ("allopathic") Western medicine and alternative medicines (comprising many approaches, from acupuncture to yoga). Katz does not reject any particular approach merely because he favors another. While he tends to favor certain alternative approaches, he does not spurn mainstream medicines. There are situations, for example, when herbal medicine won't work and radical prostatectomy is the best option.

So I do recommend Katz's guide to prostate cancer, but I would also recommend other books as well. There are important facts and advice regarding prostate cancer that I learned from other sources.

Finally, I note that Katz recommends the herbal supplement Zyflamend, made by a company called New Chapter. He assures the reader: "I don't mean to endorse any particular brand of herbal supplement", but goes on to state, "I recommend New Chapter's products, particularly Zyflamend, to all my patients who are in chemo-prevention" (p. 173). Katz devotes a total of eight pages (pp. 172-179) to describing the contents and benefits of the various components of Zyflamend.

Such a strong recommendation (an endorsement, in fact) of a particular product seemed a bit out of place in a book of this sort. That piqued my curiosity. I learned that Katz is listed as one of the inventors of at least two U.S. patents (Nos. 7067159 & 7070816) concerning methods for treating prostate cancer with herbal compositions. Sounds like Zyflamend... There are two other inventors listed for these patents: Paul Schulick (one of the founders of New Chapter) and Thomas Newmark (a friend of Schulick who joined New Chapter in 1999, according to information on New Chapter's website). The assignee of each of those patents is identified as New Chapter, Inc. itself.

These facts suggest that Katz has a financial interest in the commercial success of Zyflamend. Maybe I'm old-fashioned (I'm old enough to have prostate cancer, after all...), but I think that Katz should have disclosed his links (if any) with New Chapter and his financial interest (if any) in the product, Zyflamend, that he recommends so strongly in his book. Although Zyflamend does appear to be a good product, well worth taking, the apparent conflict of interest here leaves a bad taste in my mouth.
