I just had a new Psa test and it was 1.17.  Six months ago it was 3.6.  Frankly, I thought 3.6 was very low for me.

To review, three years ago, I was diagnosed with Stage 4 with matastases over about 70% of my body and a Psa of 300, and was given not much of a chance.  I am wondering how I could have a Psa of 1.17 which is very low for a normal man of 84.  Actually, the lab knew I have stage 4 cancer, and they did the test twice to make sure.  I do not understand this 1.17 and am asking for help on what is going on. (but I am definitely celebrating!!!)  Thanks.

Love, Swami Rakendra

That is surprising, for sure.  But, pleasant surprises are always preferred.

I cannot provide any substantive technical/medical comments, regarding your surprisingly low PSA results, particularly when the specimen was tested twice.

I will, however, join you in a virtual toast today to celebrate the good results.

Hi Rakendra,

In a "clean environment" (free of drugs effects), the lower PSA has no other motive to exist than a cause of lower activity of the cancer. Some drugs manage to mask the real value of the PSA such as 5-ARI like avodart and finasteride, which may lower 50% of the stuff in circulation. A lower level of  androgens also could decelerate the activity of prostatic cells turning these into an indolent kind of status. You have no testicles producing testosterone but you got the adrenal glands feeding the bandit. I would think that the cancerous cells are still not producing androgens, a fact typical of PCa when its survival is threatened.

Let me join you for the toast proposed by Josephg.

Swami,

Whatever the reason, your numbers are amazing, stunning: 300 to 1.17

You have either tapped into some island nutritional or spiritual form of healing, or both.   Your news is wonderful, as have been many of your posts. I'll toast almost anything, and definitely these results,

thanks, guys.  As you know my approach to cancer is to  celebrate and accept.  I see the cancer as giving me an opportunity to get the lessons I need for my spiitual growth before I die, and, having cancer is the gift that allows that spiritual growth to happen.  Spirit cannot die, it always was and always will be.  It is eternal.  Death only happens to the body.  So, with my acceptance, and my vow to always be positive and loving, I create the oportunity for a miracle to happen.  I am available for the miracle.  A miracle is the most loving positive gift you can receive.  It is atracted to a loving, positive atmosphere.  It is repelled by ANY sort of negativity.  So, I am available for the miracle, and I get it. And there is no question it is a miracle.  My bone cancer is as advanced as it gets.  

      Futher evidence is that I am now bodbuilding.  It is is impossible to build a body at 84, stage 4 and no testosterone.  I will be competing in Mr. Davao in three weeks.  I will post this competition and my story on Youtube.  My actions of cancer treatment are totally out of the box, but look at the results.

love, Swami Rakendra

Yes, indeed!

It's uplifting to read your latest post. Congratulations from a (firm) believer in the classical approach to medicine.

Rakendra,

As always you surprise me with your means to justify the reasons of the occurrences. Your descriptions of death where body and soul (spirit) become two independent and separate aspects of the Life are simply wonderful.
I recall a booklet given to me by a nurse of Singapore JH back in 2001 titled “Accepting Death”. I though her attitude “arrogant” because of the booklet’s title. As a PCa patient, I took the action as she was suggesting that I would die, however the booklet’s contents had nothing to do with dying but the death. It was a sort of views explaining about the meaning of death.

You have experienced successes last year in both fronts; cancer “subduedness” and bodybuilding. I wish you success and the best of lucks in this year’s Mr. Davao’s contest.

Salamat po

My spiritual gift of severe manic depression led me to only two choices - change or die.  So in search of change, I started my journey by seeking the answer to two questions: Who am I? Why am I here?

 

   When it comes to who am I?  For me, it is certain I am not my body.  It is also certain I am not my flawed mind (just as your mind is also flawed).  So, what is left?  Man has a certain nobility.  Call it the willingness to lay down his life for another or a cause.  Or call it the ability to love and to be love. I call that spirituality.  And my last 45 years has been a trip to connect and develop that Higher Consciousness of Man.  If I am not a body and not a mind, then I must be that spirit.  It must be a separate entity that I am not only born with, but also I will leave with when my body becomes dysfunctional.  Death is an illusion. Spirit is on an eternal journey whose purpose is to eventually unite with the Creator as Pure Love on an equal basis.  But that reward only comes with consciously doing the inner work necessary to promote spiritual growth, Love, and Oneness with all the brothers and sisters.

 

   Strangely, those who fear death will only discover after the body dies that death needs to be celebrated and not feared. No one “fails” at life.  There cannot be and there is no “judgement”.  Either you got the lessons or you did not.  The choice is yours.  Is it time for you now?

 

PS My Mr. Davao is nothing like I was at 80 yo when I was doing steroids.  But even so, at 84 I am exceptional.  A miracle is not just for one, it is for all, and needs to be shared.  Mr Davao merely gives me a platform to share that miracle.

            Love, Swami Rakendra
