Current Health Hunters Newsletter:
Do you want to know what you aren’t being told about Crohn’s, colitis, and all chronic illness for that matter? Seriously, do you really want to know? You might not like the answer. The truth has a funny way of forcing us to make a choice. You must choose sides, and making no choice at all is itself a choice. So, I challenge you right now to be open to my observations and to consider them seriously.
My name is Austin Powers (YES! Seriously!). I’m the author of “The Ostomy Guy Story: Memoirs of a Bagman” and the host of “The Ostomy Guy Podcast.” I was diagnosed with fistulizing Crohn’s and colitis when I was 10 years old in 1992. It all started because of a fistula opening near my rectum. At that time there were no answers as to how to physically handle something like this, let alone emotionally, and there still aren’t. Children of all ages are getting diagnosed with chronic diseases, and left with more questions; the important ones have too many answers, while the most important ones have no answers. Both leave you feeling paralyzed.Download Now

Health Hunters: Revolutionary High Dose Vitamin D Protocol for Autoimmunity, Obesity and Improved Sleep - Years ago, Dr. Hugh Riordan and I were driving through Boulder, Colorado on our way to an appointment. As we happened to drive past a McDonald’s restaurant, he shook his head and made this striking comment, “It’s too bad we don’t have a ‘McPill.’” No, Dr. Hugh was not endorsing fast food. He told me he was thinking of vitamin D3: so simple to dose, low cost; very safe, highly effective at mitigating a wide array of chronic illnesses; the ultimate preventive nutrient. Were it offered by McDonald’s on a worldwide scale, it might cost less than a few cents for each dose. Heck, McDonald’s could offer it for free, as a public health option! The vitamin D McPill would have been the ultimate universal “health coup!” Well, it will never happen. It was a pipe dream. The point being, however, that vitamin D may be the simplest, most universal way to both recover health and maintain health!
Health Hunters: Cancer-Related Fatigue - Fatigue is a common problem in cancer patients, both among those undergoing active treatment and in survivors. Some reports show that as many as 90% of cancer patients struggle with fatigue at some point in their journey and a prevalence of up to 45% in cancer survivors. The fatigue that comes with cancer, called cancer-related fatigue (CRF), is different from the fatigue of daily life. CRF causes disruption in all aspects of quality of life, and may be a risk factor for reduced survival. By definition, CRF is a distressing, persistent, subjective sense of physical, emotional, and/or cognitive tiredness or exhaustion related to cancer or cancer treatment, that is not proportional to recent activity, and interferes with usual functioning. More and more, cancer centers are relying on integrative medicine practitioners to help manage this complex condition with complementary and alternative (CAM) therapies, as these have been shown to be the most promising interventions available at this time.
Health Hunters: Nature’s Anti-Aging Mineral: Sulfur - Minerals are all around us on the earth. They are found in the soil and taken up by the roots of plants and concentrated. These micronutrient minerals are essential to our health. Some of the more talked about minerals are ones like calcium, magnesium, sodium and zinc. This article will focus on one of the lesser known, but incredibly important, minerals – sulfur! The sulfur compound that we consume as part of our diet is called methylsulfonylmethane, or MSM. This is the oxidized metabolite of dimethyl sulfoxide, or DMSO. Both of these provide biologically active sulfur, which is the fourth most plentiful mineral in the body (behind calcium, phosphorus, and potassium). The sulfur cycle primarily begins in the ocean. Algae and phytoplankton release sulfur compounds that get converted into DMSO and MSM in the presence of ozone and ultraviolet light. These water soluble compounds fall to earth in rain and are taken up by plants, which concentrate them up to 100-fold1. Sulfur is also found in high concentrations in the earth’s core. Therefore, naturally occurring sulfur is present in large quantities around areas of volcanic eruptions and hot springs. People travel long distances to bathe in these sulfur-containing baths to maintain a youthful appearance and treat a variety of skin conditions. As a supplement, MSM is a very safe way to ingest the biologically active form of sulfur. Virtually no adverse side effects have been reported in the research. Some people report mild digestive symptoms if they take too much. Because MSM helps promote detoxification in the liver, some people have also reported headaches or symptoms related to rapid detoxification.
Health Hunters: Mental Health and Diet – The Road to the Brain Begins with the Belly! - Did you know that 75% of your brain chemistry (neurotransmitters) is produced in your gut?! Did you know that 90% of your serotonin, happy brain chemical hormone, is produced in your gut? Yes! The intestinal tract is home to so much of our nervous system that it is often referred to as our “second brain”. We make our neurotransmitters from amino acids, vitamins, and minerals; and because of this, what we eat and what we don’t eat can directly impact our mood, behavior, sleep, anxiety, depression and mental health. The healthier and less inflamed we can keep our digestive tract, the healthier and better balanced our mental faculties can be.
Health Hunters: Phospholipids to Protect Your Memory and Brain - We are all living in a world where health conditions affecting the brain’s health are becoming more prevalent. This leaves us in a vulnerable place compared to that of our ancestors. Today we must take extra measures to protect ourselves from developing degenerative health conditions. While there are many elements to our health, today I will be addressing the topic of memory and brain health, and how phospholipids may potentially affect or improve them. There are five general classes of phospholipids...
Health Hunters: History in the Making - Riordan Clinic Chosen As Research Center For Ground-Breaking Vitamin C Technology It was futurist Ray Kurzweil who said the speed of information is accelerating at such an exponential rate that discoveries are being made that can’t be put into practice before another more advanced innovation is reported that would replace it. A giant leap in modern medicine’s understanding of vitamin C is now taking place. The Riordan Clinic is leading the way. It is the chosen research center for a remarkable discovery in progress. With no exaggeration, this may be the greatest development ever in the history of medicine. Here is why. There is no misplaced or undeserved hyperbole to say the restoration of internal vitamin C synthesis in humans would be the greatest health discovery of all time.
Health Hunters: Is CBD Right for You? - Chances are you’ve heard of CBD. Perhaps you’ve read about it online or even seen signs for local shops selling it. Maybe a friend has told you they are taking it for pain relief or anxiety. You may have even come across YouTube videos of children being given it in the middle of a seizure and, seemingly within moments, returning to a normal state. In many ways, the purported benefits of taking CBD seem almost too good to be true, for something easily purchased online or from a supplement store. Despite all of the hype, there are still many unknowns. So, let’s take a look at what we actually do know about CBD at this time. What is CBD? Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally-occurring compound found in the cannabis plant, and is the second most abundant of the active ingredients after tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Unlike THC, however, CBD does not cause any euphoria or other mind-altering effects. According to a report from the World Health Organization, “In humans, CBD exhibits no effects indicative of any abuse or dependence potential…. To date, there is no evidence of public health related problems associated with the use of pure CBD.” Due to the absence of safety concerns, CBD has not been as strictly regulated as THC. However, the laws around CBD are still evolving and remain convoluted and unclear.
Health Hunters: Can You Eliminate Anxiety without Medication? - When I tell people I teach mindfulness for a living, the first thing they often share with me is the anxiety in their lives. Anxiety is a form of stress that appears to have an overarching presence in today’s society. To give you a little background, research suggests that the amygdala, which is located in the center of our brain, developed the anxiety response to external stimuli as a means of survival. Prehistoric cavemen developed an entire region in their brains dedicated to keeping them alive in the midst of daily life-threatening scenarios. It worked. A little too well, it seems. Flash forward to present times, while our brain is still wired to run away from dinosaurs, it often interprets signals (such as our phones beeping, emails coming in at a pace we can’t keep up with, or a hostile Facebook post in our feed) as life-threatening stressors. So while a new text message may seem benign, or even something to get excited about, it’s just one more thing in our daily environment that can add to our modern anxieties.
Health Hunters: DYNAMIC AGING: Overcoming Obstacles and Adding Life to your Years - What if your lack of mobility isn’t due to your age but instead due to the number of years you haven’t been moving well? Movement, not just exercise, is essential to living dynamically, well into your golden years. While aging is not a choice, how you age is. The good news is that it is never too late to start moving more and, more importantly, moving better. In order to express your physical capacity, the key is overcoming many of the obstacles placed in front of you. After 15 years of studying human movement, and working with clients of all ages, I have found that most people share three common hurdles: FEAR, CONVENIENCE, and EXERCISE MISCONCEPTIONS. The following are strategies to work through these obstacles and start living dynamically.
Health Hunters: Does Glyphosate Provide a Pathway to Modern Disease? - Glyphosate, more commonly known as Roundup, is a general, broad spectrum herbicide. In the mid-1970s, it was used in a limited scope prior to planting or post-harvest to kill weeds and other undesirable plants growing in fields, lawns, decorative gardens, and orchards. Due to its broad spectrum herbicidal action, it could be used for little else because it killed not only weeds but also crops. It was also discovered in Scotland in the 1980s that glyphosate applied typically to grain crops late in the growing season, just as they began to ripen, could speed up the death of the plants and make whole fields ripen together allowing earlier harvest. Moving forward another decade, the 1990s saw the advent of the first Roundup Ready crops. These were genetically modified organisms (GMOs) that were made to be resistant to glyphosate. This meant that these crops (corn, wheat, and soy) could be planted and then glyphosate could be applied to control weeds and undesirable plants without disrupting the growth of these Roundup Ready crops because they were resistant to the action of glyphosate.
Health Hunters – The Importance of Detox - Toxins are often the root causes of the medical problems I see brought by patients to our clinic. Toxins can be present on multiple levels including physical, electromagnetic/energetic, and emotional (which is something I think is often forgotten or passed over). So how do we heal? How do we wake up? The beginning of healing includes detoxification on all levels and replacing the bad with good – positive thoughts, positive energy, surrounding ourselves with community, eating whole foods full of light and grown with care and love, learning what our emotions are telling us and healing old traumas, and finding our joy and purpose.
Health Hunters – IV Vitamin C Versus Cancer & Other Killers - An interview with Dr. Ron as printed in Whole Foods Magazine. "A common thread in the columns is that the amount of vitamin C in the blood is the key to vitamin C’s effectiveness. Sometimes, the most convenient way to obtain adequate blood levels of vitamin C is to use intravenous vitamin C (IVC). Reports of IVC’s effectiveness against some cancers are now appearing regularly in the peer-reviewed scientific literature. In July 2017, a study on IVC against prostate cancer was published that should interest additional physicians. ..."
Health Hunters – Why Your Stomach Acid Is Important - I am reasonably certain that, from time to time, most of us have suffered from acid reflux. Here I am talking about the simple indigestion that may come from a meal too rich in fats or meats or perhaps too much alcohol. However, for many of us, when simple indigestion becomes a chronic daily problem that can lead to serious illness, this is called gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD).
Health Hunters – Taking a Break - By the time most patients get to integrative medicine, they have already been on a long journey of seeking the right care. Many are tired from the journey. It has required effort just to maintain hope. There have been enough disappointments along the way that there is usually some degree of distrust that accompanies their exhaustion, when first arriving to the integrative or alternative care practitioner.
Health Hunters – Regenerative Injection Therapies - Science shows that our body will produce and shuttle certain nutrients upon injury. When it is not given enough tools, time, or attention to the system, a “work around” is formed. In order to heal, we must remind the body of the injury again and encourage it to solve the problem.
Health Hunters – A Guide to Your Best, Healthy Summer! - Summer is a great season. Flowers are in bloom, vegetables are ripening, and the days are long. The new growth and life are motivating for us to form new habits, get more active, and enjoy the beautiful outdoors. In this article, we are going to be talking about how to make the most of our summer months by avoiding common chemicals used in the summertime and creating new routines and habits that will fuel a healthy lifestyle.
Health Hunters – DETOX - Many doctors truly believe that the process of cleansing and detoxiﬁ cation is virtually one of the most powerful healing therapies. Cleansing, fasting, and detoxiﬁ cation, are different degrees of the same process of reducing toxin intake and enhancing toxin elimination.
Health Hunters – Intermittent Fasting - With this lifestyle, food was not always readily available. Most of the time, eating came in a “feast or famine” sort of pattern. The biochemistry of our bodies adapted to that way of living. When you abstain from food for a period, it creates a biological stressor to the body. This hormetic effect induces pathways in the body that can have healing effects....
Health Hunters – Live More Joyfully - Our brain (our mind) has become trained to multitask, plan the future and ruminate the past. This has left the present moment often forgotten. The irony is that the present moment is really the only one we have...
Health Hunters – The Emotions of PMS - If a woman can understand and accept these changes as normal and healthy, then solutions can be found and she can adjust her lifestyle a bit during that time to help compensate. Most often PMS is treated like a disease...
Health Hunters – New Thinking About the Brain - The fear of growing old just got a whole lot tougher for many heading into retirement age. The prevalence of dementia among older generations carries questions about the risk not only to our physical, but also to our cognitive well-being in later life. More people live in fear of the development of dementia than the development of cancer. The fear of dementia occurs in two-thirds of people over fifty, while just one out of every ten fears cancer. These fears can surface whenever we can’t find our keys or recall a name. It is common and understandable to feel this way, especially if we see the effects of dementia and Alzheimer’s in family members. The truth is, we can improve our mental state and prognosis right now! Our brains were built to adapt, not decay.
Health Hunters – Lectins - We live in an incredible time in history. At no other point has life been so comfortable for humans. We don’t have to forage for our food, we live in temperature-controlled environments, we sleep on soft mattresses, and we have vehicles to transport us to where we need to go. Yet, we are in the midst of an epidemic of chronic diseases. People are stressed, tired, anxious, depressed, disconnected, in pain and angry. We are quick to want to medicate our symptoms away without asking what could be the root of all of those symptoms. I can’t speak to your exact condition, but what my experience has taught me is that inflammation is at the root of most chronic diseases.
Health Hunters – Stem Cell Therapy for Chronic Disease Part 2 - The stem cells in our blood, also called circulating stem cells, are the tools our bodies use to repair damaged tissue and to keep us healthy. Aging, genetics, and poor lifestyle choices use up our supply of circulating stem cells. You can’t stop aging, and you can’t help genetics, but you can improve both areas by taking action with what you can change: your lifestyle choices. The harder you work to take care of the stem cells you have, and the less frequently you use them to repair damages you could have avoided with a healthy lifestyle, the more you are doing to protect what all the money in the world can’t buy back once it’s wasted: your own good health.
Health Hunters – Stem Cell Therapy for Chronic Disease Part 1 - The reason one cell [stem cells] can do this is because the root cause of the majority of chronic diseases is either a lack of these cells or a dysfunction of these cells or a combination: these cells just aren’t doing their jobs anymore. We know the exact molecule that they don’t produce in lupus patients, we know they are dysfunctional in multiple sclerosis (MS) patients, we know in rheumatoid arthritis they don’t secrete what they’re supposed to, so basically every auto-immune disease, I believe, is a net result of a lack or dysfunction of these cells.
Health Hunters – Hypertension: A Natural Approach - Hypertension is nothing to overlook. If left untreated, it can lead to long-term complications. The natural approaches here are listed as an educational resource only and should not be considered as medical advice. Please feel free to ask your doctor about these therapies as individual or adjunctive treatments for high blood pressure. As always, we here at the Riordan clinic are here for you.
Health Hunters – The Mouth-Body Connection - While nobody would deny that the mouth is a part of the body, it is nevertheless most notable how few physicians and dentists routinely consider their connections to each other’s domain in the practice of their professions. Not only are they connected, they are connected at the hip. A mouth-disease connection of significance is a common situation, not a rare one. Rather than virtually never being considered as affecting one another, the interplay between the mouth and the rest of the body should mandate that the evaluation of such a connection be at the top of the list of considerations when either the physician or the dentist sees a patient for the first time.
Health Hunters – Sleep, Wakefulness and Overall Health - Given the evidence from experimental studies supporting the ability of melatonin to slow the growth of cancer, it is theorized that exposure to light at night not only has an impact on breast cancer risk, but also may increase the risk of other cancers, primarily through the melatonin pathway. This has been posed previously without much further attention from the scientific community, but most recent evidence from observational studies supports such a link.
Health Hunters – Can IV Vitamin C Stop a Deadly Infection? - If IV Vitamin C is improving survival rates in sepsis, could the patients getting sepsis (the elderly, the people with chronic conditions like diabetes, the patients with weakened immune systems on chemotherapy with cancer) have a deficiency in vitamin C? Could people with chronic illness be walking around in their daily life with a low grade scurvy? Furthermore, could they have other deficiencies we don’t even know about such as vitamin D? Could they be deficient in minerals, amino acids, healthy fats, B vitamins, etc.? Based on my years in practice I believe these are valid questions to pose, and ones that can mean the difference between life and death for, not just sepsis, but all chronic conditions. As an example, Vitamin D deficiency has been documented in studies as an independent risk factor for mortality (risk of death) of ICU patients.
Health Hunters – How to Avoid Sugar - If you had read the title of this article to our ancestors 10,000 years ago, you would have sounded crazy. Avoid sugar? Our ancestors’ survival was dependent upon finding energy (food) and, in nature, sugar is the best source of quick energy. This is why sugar tastes so good to us. It is genetically programmed in our brains to signal pleasure and reward. In fact, our brains run on sugar (glucose) for energy... As with any substance, a little bit can be good, but too much can be toxic... Our bodies are dependent upon glucose for survival. However, overconsumption of sugar has been implicated in many of the chronic diseases of modern living that we see today.
Health Hunters – Magnesium Decreases Hyperactivity in ADHD Children - Magnesium deficiency is found more frequently in children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) than in healthy children. In one study of ADHD children, magnesium deficiency was found in 95 percent of those examined (1). Does this warrant magnesium supplementation for hyperactive children? The answer is...
Health Hunters – Heart Disease and Vitamin C - How to Protect Yourself from Accelerated Aging. High dose vitamin C has potential effects in inflammatory status and improving defense status in subjects with metabolic syndrome. We also demonstrated that the activation of translational factor Nrf2 by IVC treatment can induce protection against age-related degenerative diseases and cancer.
Health Hunters – A Natural Approach for Infertility - There is so much we at the Riordan Clinic can do to help increase your chances of fertility. Our state-of-the-art laboratory can measure most nutrients, which can help us pinpoint what deficiency or excess may be preventing your body from accepting pregnancy. People are spending an average of $10–25K per in vitro fertilization (IVF) attempt. The success rate for IVF on first attempt is only 30-35% for women under 35! I would recommend first spending six months at our center doing a FULL nutrient workup, which would be less than half the cost of one IVF treatment. We see patients from all over the world, so you do not have to be a Wichitan to receive this top-notch care. We cannot promise pregnancy, but I can say I’ve seen many “infertile” women achieve pregnancy. If they are not able to achieve pregnancy, the only side effect would be better health and well-being. It is a priceless investment!
Health Hunters – In Defense of Estrogen - Our assertion, from the field of Orthomolecular Medicine, is that there are often no better ‘drugs’ than the human hormones and other chemicals that already exist in the body that simply need to be restored or enhanced with bioidentical chemicals. This is the ideal way to approach imbalances in hormone and other biochemical systems.
Health Hunters – Depression? Anxiety? You Are Not Alone - Have you ever had the experience of feeling depressed or anxious, but when you try to think of a reason you feel that way, you can’t come up with one? Or another scenario: if we feel anxious, our brain looks for a reason why we are feeling that way. We assume it must be our job, our kids, our spouse … etc. Or maybe we have felt that way our whole life and we just assume that is the way we are supposed to feel? In reality, it’s our neurochemistry that is altered and has influenced how we perceive the world.
Health Hunters – High-Dose IV Vitamin C - As a highly talked about minimally invasive treatment for cancer, high-dose IV vitamin C therapy is being introduced as a clinical treatment in more and more medical institutes in Japan. As an increasing number of cancer patients seek alternative “minimally invasive” treatments, we expect high-dose IV vitamin C therapy to be one of the most popular options.
Health Hunters – The Sun Shines on Vitamin D - We still call it vitamin D and yet, nearly every knowledgeable speaker on the topic begins by noting it is a hormone. Actually, D3 is a prohormone, which is inert until it undergoes a two-step activation process tightly regulated by the body. That is why D3 has such a wide margin of safety. The major function of the D3 hormone is gene regulation. Recently discovered functions of D3 regulation uncover the relationship between low D levels and the observed incidence of many disorders, like multiple sclerosis, diabetes, lupus, rheumatoid arthritis and Crohn’s disease.
Health Hunters – Are You Rusting Inside? - If you look up anything about the process of oxidation, you may find that it takes place by means of something called ‘free radicals.’ Free radicals are like a fire. Many of the free radicals arise from the fire within us, called metabolism. Much of the metabolism of our cells takes place in the mitochondria. You can think of mitochondria as little power plants that power a city. They work day and night to convert energy to usable forms so that you can have the energy to think, walk, talk and be you. All of our cells make free radicals during metabolism in the mitochondria and they have a purpose, just as the power of fire can be harnessed and used as a tool for heat or light. However, if that fire gets out of hand it can cause excessive oxidative stress which breaks down our bodies quickly and we begin to age or rust inside.
Health Hunters – The Top 10 Most Toxic Minerals - "Many minerals are an essential part of a healthy diet. Some minerals are toxic, even in micro-amounts. They are formed by combinations of various elements. In this article you will learn, or be reminded, of the differences between minerals and elements, where the word mineral comes from, various toxic minerals and the dangers associated with each. We will also take a virtual “Grand Tour” of where the 10 most toxic minerals are likely to be encountered, what action to take if encountered, diagnostic symptoms, tests, and potential medications available for treatment."
Health Hunters – Journey to Healing: Finding New Life with Lyme Disease - "While I was not expecting a miracle at the Riordan Clinic, I actually got one! For me, IV Vitamin C (and other nutritionals), IV Glutathione and Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation were the keys that literally unlocked my body and brain and saved me. While it didn’t happen overnight, it happened in six days. The changes in my body were shocking. I went from sitting in a chair for four straight months (too fatigued or in too much pain to do simple chores; barely dragging myself through the day) to literally moving ALL day (7 a.m. to 9 p.m.) without sitting. That is a miracle in my book!" [READ MORE]
Health Hunters – Get Ready for Summer with HCG - Start by getting rid of junk food and fast food, eat lots of non-starchy vegetables, low glycemic fruits, lean protein, drink half of your body weight in clean water, and exercise! When the weight is already on your body, it is time to take action to get back to a healthy weight. If you want to jump start your weight loss, consider coming to Riordan Clinic and using HCG to help you shed those excess pounds. Our program was awarded “Best Nonsurgical Weight Loss Program” by the Wichita Eagle Readers’ Choice in 2014. It will help you get on the right path to better health. The basis for the Riordan Clinic HCG Rx+ Weight Loss Program was developed in Europe by Dr. Albert T. W. Simeons in the 1950s. It was his observations of pregnant women in famine, giving birth to normal weight babies, and obese women losing weight easily during pregnancy that started his interest in discovering what it was about pregnancy that allowed this to happen.

Health Hunters – Hoyt Lee’s Journey - Hoyt Lee's Journey "I read countless books and internet sites and the one that has changed our lives forever was a book by Ty Bollinger titled, “Cancer: Step Outside of the Box”. The end of his book he listed the top ten cancer clinics that he recommended in the world. My heart jumped with so much joy when one of the clinics mentioned… Riordan Clinic, in Wichita, Kansas!! Oh my gosh, only one and a half hours away from me… I was on the phone immediately!"
Health Hunters – Vitamin C and Cancer - Vitamin C and Cancer "70 years of research on Vitamin C show it to be much more than the “anti-scurvy factor”. It is the master controller of electron distribution and flow in our bodies. It is needed in over 10,000 biochemical reactions. It is a major antioxidant in the body, the immune system is practically useless without it, and the list goes on and on. The truth is that Vitamin C is causing a paradigm shift in science and medicine in the way it views the cause of disease and inflammation in the body. "
Health Hunters – The Miracle of Magnesium - In terms of a direct impact on health and longevity, there is no supplement more important than magnesium. Magnesium is the agent best suited to lessen the toxicity of excess calcium, which is present in varying degrees in all adults today. Understanding the toxicity of calcium and the benefits of magnesium, it is important to understand the physiology of disease at the cellular level. When this is appreciated, it then becomes clear as to what needs to be done to restore good health or at least how to slow the evolution of disease.
Health Hunters – Keep Your Pump and Pipes Working - Chelation therapy offers a greatly improved quality of life for millions of people with many different agerelated disease processes. In recent years, almost as many patients were being chelated as bypassed, with a 40 year record of safety. The effects of the treatments can be dramatic, restorative, and life prolonging. In this issue of the Health Hunters newsletter read about Chelation Therapy, Heart Health and how one patient's life was changed from their treatments.
Health Hunters – Real Health - Real Health: In December's issue of Health Hunters, we discuss Real Health and examples of how this approach helped two co-learners. We also look at it from our Chief Medical Officer's stand point as well as a case study about a co-learner's Real Health experience with Prostate Cancer.
