The Pfeiffer protocol offers a range of active dietary supplements that may reduce the biological activity of prostate cancer in a prescribed combination that is appropriate to the individual patient. It has been used in combination with and sometimes as an alternative to “conventional” treatment of prostate cancer. For some patients it appears to be beneficial, but there is currently insufficient evidence to assess critically the results of this approach. The treatment protocol is available in the UK but not in the NHS, and it can be an expensive option.

Careful specialist medical supervision is always recommended for patients with cancer. When considering alternative treatments, it is important to remember that established medical treatments are invariably recommended because there is strong evidence indicating their benefit over and against alternatives.
