Explore Minimally Invasive, Hi-Tech Prostate Cancer Solutions
Don't let Your Prostate Cancer be the One that Gets Away!
Prostate Cancer Navigation – Ahoy! You don’t have to go it alone Mate.
You can benefit by having an expert prostate cancer navigator by your side – a cancer pioneer who has guided 1000s of patients like you through the complex cancer maze.
Did you know your tumour DNA data can be identified and mapped? DNA testing can make a significant difference to your survivorship and forms the basis of a scientific qualified second opinion.
Why you need a prostate cancer navigator: With your diagnosis, imagine you are now the captain of your own Cancer Survivor-Ship. You are sailing in uncharted waters – as a first timer! That is why you can benefit greatly from the guidance of a cancer navigator with 46 years’ experience. Like thousands of patients before you, she can help you prepare your survivor-ship for the journey by arranging DNA testing, a qualified second opinion, as well as a personalised suite of minimally invasive treatment options for you to consider.
The Grace Gawler Institute offers various levels of prostate cancer navigation services.
We suggest beginning with a video consultation with Grace to ascertain your needs.
Helping you make informed decisions
We exist to help you make the best choices:
The Grace Gawler Institute’s point of difference in helping you manage and recover from prostate cancer is our unique, dedicated and personalised approach aimed at minimising “normal” treatment side effects such as radiation fibrosis, incontinence, bowel issues and erectile dysfunction and of course, attending to the psychological impact of your diagnosis. The latter can go unaddressed for years causing significant depression and emotional trauma.
Cure? Some prostate cancers are cured by radiation and surgery; but this often comes at a cost; lifelong side effects diminish life quality and often place significant relationships under continual duress.
When your prostate cancer is first diagnosed, my 46 years’ experience informs me that it is important for you, the patient, and your partner, to do your due-diligence regarding what to expect after treatment. You need to seriously consider likely side effects – both short term and long term before treatment commences. It is a risk vs benefits equation and you need to be comfortable with having had your questions answered adequately and any potential outcomes discussed in depth.
The Grace Gawler Institute, over many years, has formed a network of national and international specialists who can provide you with innovative minimally invasive options, including options to avoid bowel damage during any required radiation therapy.
Our expert colleagues can provide you with a second or third opinion; then you can make a Health Restoration Plan with the help and guidance of your personalised Cancer Navigator.

Gut bacteria and Your Prostate Cancer Health – the Personalised Way:
The type and composition of your gut bacteria may influence the metabolism of certain nutritional compounds from your diet. This may increase your prostate cancer risk and also possibly progression. High intake of calcium in dairy products, over consumption of red meat and fat have been linked to increase prostate cancer risk or progression.
Your gut bacteria have a key role in digestion & metabolising the foods we consume:
Excess of the wrong type of foods can alter gut bacteria. But conversely; eradicating certain food groups from our diet can also starve our resident gut bacteria. It is a balancing act!
Imbalance of plant-based foods, dairy and grain products and fats can alter the balance of gut bacteria leading to generation of inflammatory molecules, which in turn can influence cancer development.
Antibiotics: Another issue for gut microbiome is treatment with antibiotics, that although necessary to treat infections; cause drastic imbalances in resident gut bacteria. A reduced diversity profile of usually resident microbiomes can lead to an overgrowth of bacteria that promote inflammation and prostate cancer.
Explore LACTIS (an abiotic – more effective than probiotics) to nourish and increase numbers of healthy resident gut bacteria.
Don’t go it alone!
