Prostate-Specific Antigen (PSA) is produced predominantly by cells within the prostate gland.
When the prostate is affected by inflammation (acidosis), toxicity or surgical biopsies, the damage caused to the prostate tissues results in an increase of the PSA enzyme into blood circulation. Therefore, PSA tests can be used to evaluate the degree of inflammation or damage caused to the prostate.
The higher the PSA, the greater the degree of inflammation (acidosis). The higher above 5.0 ng/mL, the greater the likelihood of severe prostate tissue degeneration (prostate “cancer”) will be.
If PSA levels are >1.0 ng/mL, consider adrenal glands, kidneys and the large intestines.
