What are the side effects of center therapy by Ceragem projector?

Hi! I am 60 years old and I am having prostate cancer. When diagnosed (october 2014), PSA was 154, Gleason score 4+3 and the bone scan showed some dark shades (most likely metastases) on one rib, the sternum and the pelvic bone . I am receiving hormone therapy (total blockade the testosterone) for nine months and the PSA has dropped to 1.45 on july 25th this year. Recently I visited the center for therapy with CERAGEM projector. I am very pleased with the the first 40 minutes massage, but I would like to hear your opinion about any possible negative effects of this therapy (since it is combination on acupressure, thermal heating to about 45 degrees Centigrade and Far Infrared Radiation) on my prostate cancer. At the CERAGEM center I was told that besides improvement of the blood circulation, it can help regulating the PH value of my organism, which is good for any cancer treatment, but still, the people there are not specialists, so your opinion will be very valuable to me. Thank you.

Hello,

I understand your desire to keep your disease under control. your gleason score is just 7, so you should do well with androgen blockade for a long time.
With scientific advancement new drugs are available for prostate cancer adding even years to life.

Regarding CERAGEM, since it is not a conventional treatment of cancer, I do not think an oncologist will be able to answer about the side effects of the same.

However as a oncologist I am oK as long as youj are taking medication of your hormone blockade. MOreover the pH theory of cancer has been in the market for a long time and is not proven yet.

Just as food for thought, orange juice is acidic, still is healthy.
