Peter Starr on How to Survive Prostate Cancer Without Surgery, Drugs, or Radiation

Dr. Mercola interviewed Peter Starr, a documentary film maker who produced the film Surviving Prostate Cancer Without Surgery, Drugs, or Radiation after he was was diagnosed with prostate cancer, and was able to successfully treat himself by changing his diet, lifestyle and outlook. He said that one in six men develop prostate cancer in the US. While prostate cancer is common, it does have a close to a 90% survival rate after being diagnosed. Peter noted that a study done in England showed that if an individual does absolutely nothing about prostate cancer, he will live just as long as if he did conventional treatment. Peter was critical of the medical industry that pushes surgery for profit. Many men often die from the conventional treatment of the cancer: damaging drugs, radiation and surgery. Peter said that the emotional element can have a potent impact on prostate cancer, both in terms of triggering it, and in successfully treating it. When Peter was diagnosed with prostate cancer, he had no insurance and could not afford surgery, so he did intense research and ended up putting together his own program, and three years later, they couldn’t find any sign of cancer in his prostate. All they found was a benign lesion. To be on the safe side, he continues to monitor it with an annual 3D color-Doppler ultrasound.

Dr. Mercola published a free e-book by Larry Clapp, PhD, titled Prostate Health in 90 Days.

Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men. In the US, about 221,800 men get diagnosed every year yet only about 27,500 die each year from the disease. Unfortunately, the conventional treatment for prostate cancer leaves much to be desired.

Wouldn’t it be nice to have a therapy that didn’t involve costly and hazardous surgery, drugs, or radiation?

Peter Starr, an award-winning filmmaker, recently produced the documentary Surviving Prostate Cancer Without Surgery, Drugs, or Radiation. He’s also in the process of writing a book on the same subject.

In June 2004, he was in fact diagnosed with prostate cancer, and as his film and book title reveals, today, 11 years later, he’s still here to share his story.

Why Peter Decided to Take a Lesser-Known Path to Treat His Cancer

Peter spent 35 years making documentary films before becoming a stunt man, riding motorcycles. He suffered a bad accident in 1999 and was unable to work for nearly nine months. Four years later, almost to the day, he was diagnosed with prostate cancer.

“That’s significant because I later learned about emotional traumas creating the source or the trigger, if you like, for the cancer mechanism,” he says.

As most men, Peter dutifully followed the standard protocol of getting an annual prostate-specific antigen (PSA) test, and when a digital rectal exam (DRE) revealed an area of concern, he followed doctors’ orders to get a biopsy done.

“Now, there was no discussion about what a biopsy was, what it would do, what one could tell from it, and what the effects were after the biopsy. I was one of the sheep. I just went in for the program and did the biopsy.

A day later, the urologist called me up and within about eight seconds, he said, ‘Yup, you’ve got a cancer. I want you to read this book by Dr. Patrick Walsh then come in and see me,’ and hung up on me.

All I heard was cancer, the ‘C’ word. I freaked out like most people do. It took me a good four days to understand that I could get a handle on this. Dealing with it, for me was, ‘Yes, go look for that book.’

I went to several libraries, bookstores, and health bookstores. I didn’t find that particular book but what I did find was a book by Dr. Larry Clapp called Prostate Health in 90 Days.

I then went to seek the opinion of a couple of other doctors… When my urologist said, ‘You’ve got to do a radical prostatectomy,’ I didn’t. By that time, I had no insurance, so I asked him, ‘What’s this going to cost?’

The answer was $43,000, which he couldn’t afford. Peter walked out of the office and never looked back. Instead, he began reading and talking to people to learn everything he could about both conventional and unconventional ideas about prostate cancer treatment.

He ended up putting together his own program, and three years later, they couldn’t find any sign of cancer in his prostate. All they found was a benign lesion. To be on the safe side, he continues to monitor it with an annual 3D color-Doppler ultrasound.

“After about four years, there was nothing there to be concerned with,” he says, “but I had found all this amazing material… so I set about making a documentary.”

56 Doctors Speak Out About Alternative Prostate Cancer Treatment

Traveling to eight countries on three continents, he interviewed doctors about various aspects of their specialty. In all, 56 doctors are included in the film—MDs, DOs, NDs, and some PhDs that don’t practice but do a lot of research.

“All of the people in the documentary are highly-credentialed. We had a shorter version of the film that ran on PBC recently, and I had doctors complaining that these were voodoo doctors; I had to go to the head of the programming for this particular station and say, ‘Look at the credentials of these people!’

It’s almost like you cannot attack conventional thinking because that’s how they make their money, and that’s all they’ve learned. They don’t have the frame of mind to go outside of that. I swear, if some of these guys got prostate cancer, they would change their entire thinking about it if they looked into what I’ve learned,” Peter says.

In the early ’70s Dirk Benedict was diagonosed with prostate cancer. He bought a load of macrobiotic food, went to a cabin in the woods where he stayed for several weeks. He left there cancer-free. He is still cancer-free to this day. He told the story in his first book, “Confessions of a Kamikaze Cowboy”. He says he has received tons of letters from people who had cancer, read his book, and turned their lives around.
