I think eating antifungal foods and less foods that feed yeast and fungas are the most important. I have 3 cancers and have been doing that and all my numbers are going down. My psa was 5.5 a year and a half ago now 1.9. If you look at the studies they are doing and how they treating cancer antifungals are being used for the kinds I have. I have been eating garlic curry greentea cinnamon not keg beer but distilled bottled no milk products lot of veggies and lean meat. Not much carbs that feed that yeast.

    Opinions on Diets bases on Antifungal Foods
    Hi GWC
    Your post about diets bases on antifungal foods and yeast free diets awaken my thoughts of three years ago. I believe on a sort of connection between cancer and fungus but do not know how far they are interwoven.
    Three years ago a friend lent me a book named “Cancer is a Fungus” by Dr. Tullio Simoncini, an Italian oncologist, but I read two chapters and returned it. This doctor was big news in Europe at the time as he stand accused of the death of his cancer patient who he treated based on his believes in the treatment for fungus. His professional license was revoked.

    My interest on the matter comes from researches I have done on a drug named “Ketoconazole”, which I may use on the second phase of my hormonal therapy (once hormonal refractory is verified). This drug, used in the treatment of prostate cancer, is an anti-fungal prescribed orally to combat Onychomycosis (fungus in nails) and in its shampoo form (Nizoral) it is effective against fungal infection on the scalp and skin.

    In separate studies two British scientists and researchers, Professor Gerry Potter of the Cancer Drug Discovery Group and Professor Dan Burke scientists have connected the CYP1B1 Enzyme, a biomarker typical in all cancer cells that, alters the chemical structure of nutrients called salvestrols that are found naturally in many fruits and vegetables. This chemical change turns the salvestrols into an agent that kills cancer cells, but does no harm healthy cells. Salvestrols are the natural defense system in fruit and vegetables against fungal attacks. It may be interesting in going farther in this research.
    Can you guide some sites (addresses) of investigation to share some light in the “goodies” of diets bases on antifungal foods?

    I read that yeast free diets aim to inhibit the overgrowth of “Candida albicans” (a fungus) that live in the moist areas of our bodies, such as in the digestive and in the urinary tracts. On the other side, the bacteria in our bodies feed on the yeast and keep its growth in check. However, when we take antibiotics the balance between bacteria and yeast (Candida) gets out of control. Hormonal medication can also affect the levels of bacterial colonization, as can stress, or anything else that weakens our immune system.

    I hope some guys feed in their opinions on these diets.

    I intend to try fluconazole

    I intend to try otc fluconazole for a period of time to see if there is any change. My long term antibiotics may have predisposed me to fungal issues. I am not convinced this is the issue but it seems relatively safe.

    Any change in what?

    This is a very old thread...

    And the first post has no scientific validity

    Antifungal drugs


    I wonder about your interest in antifungal drugs. Can you share details of your status that lead you to consider the drug, and your prostate cancer case?

    We do not recommend taking medications or supplements without doctor's prescription or awareness. These may interact with other drugs been taken or under therapy which could lead to catastrophic situations. Survivors here discuss the meds of their treatment and related effects. I never heard or read someone here taking Fluconazole as part of their cancer therapy but, theoroticaly without any scientific validation, it may replace Ketoconazole (a weapon drug of the arsenal against PCa) as it is less toxic to liver.

    Ketoconazole is the only antifungal in use over 20 years and known to be effective in PCa refractory cases, administered by many PCa oncologists. Its action against the bandit involves its work in prohibiting the metabolism of cholesterol into testosterone (food for PCa). Keto is an old cheap drug very effective but needs vigilance because of its toxic effect on liver when used during long periods of administration. Its substitute is the newer drug Zytiga, a CYP17A1 inhibitor taken for the same purposes but with high affinity (more effective).

    Best wishes.
