20120920_070610Grace Gawler Welcome from Grace Gawler (left) and Pip Cornall (right)

In brief, at our institute, we provide referrals, guidance & management for men with prostate cancer.

Advances in prostate cancer medicine means survivorship is improving rapidly. We also make referrals and provide guidance for overseas treatment.

For example: We help patients get optimal outcomes with less side effects in several Asian countries. These have superior equipment and techniques compared to Australia.

For Example:  Better scanning – more technically sophisticated – means a more accurate diagnosis and targeted treatment.

Treatment: the data below is from one of our colleagues in Asia regarding just one of the treatments

  • 30% reduction on the risk of death
    — 6 month increase in median overall survival (14.9 months vs 11.3 months)
  • 34% reduction on the risk of symptomatic skeletal events (SSEs)
    — Median time to first SSE was significantly delayed by 5.8 months vs placebo
  • The number of patients who had adverse events after they received the study drug was consistently lower in the ‘X’ group than in the placebo group for all adverse events
  • Patients may return home immediately following injection, with no restrictions regarding contact with other people

In 2011 we created Prostate Mates – an award winning initiative of the Grace Gawler Institute. We initially received sponsorship from QR National and Burleigh Waters Prostate Group and now fund activites via our charity. Click Here to visit our Prostate Mates website

As ‘cancer solutions advisory service’ we help you access new treatments with higher success rates and reduced side effects. We collaborate with leading prostate treatment centres locally and globally. We also organise reports and case manage so patient stress is minimised.

Many New Breakthroughs can be accessed – we arrange and make referrals: Call us 07 5577 2997 or contact Grace Gawler at askgracegawler@gmail.com

Prostate Mates Grace Gawler Institute Success StrategiesOther Services: Using proven complementary therapies we can also further reduce side effects of conventional treatments.

The Grace Gawler Institute does not recommend treatments that are unsupported by science.

However science has shown that – practicing these lifestyle changes leads to beneficial “anticancer” effects:
◾Strengthening your immune system
◾Decreasing inflammation throughout your body
◾Reducing (free radical) oxidative damage to your cells
◾Decreasing hormonal stimulation of cancer cells

The 4 main goals of our integrative cancer solutions approach are are:
◾Treating your cancer
◾Preventing a recurrence
◾Reducing side effects and symptoms
◾Empowering you to take an active part in your treatment and health

Reduce Side Effects from Standard Treatments: We use proven complementary therapies to reduce side effects from oncology making the prostate journey more comfortable and more even successful. This is the marriage or naturopathy and oncology but this cannot be learned on the internet. There are few naturopaths who actually liaise and collaborate with oncologists and specialists – there can be an undermining of treatments when supplements are contra-indicated.
