“Pulsed electromagnetism can help with tackling cancer – tackling,” Edmunds said on ITV’s This Morning in June 2016.
“It was based on my belief of tackling cancer.
“My tumour was destroyed by sound waves.”
His comments came after tweeting a picture of an EMP pad, along with the caption: “A simple box that slows ageing, reduces pain, lifts depression and stress, and tackles cancer. Yep tackles cancer!”
Edmunds was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2013.
But, the NHS urges patients to see a GP if they think they may have prostate cancer.
If treatment is necessary, the aim to cure or control the disease so it doesn’t shorten life expectancy.
If the cancer has already spread, the aim may be to prolong life and delay symptoms.
Surgical removal of the prostate gland is an option for curing cancer that hasn’t yet spread, the NHS said.
The procedure, known as radical prostatectomy.
Brachytherapy is a type of radiotherapy, where the radiation dose is delivered inside the prostate gland.
Alternatively, hormone therapy can be used with radiotherapy to slow the progression of prostate cancer. The hormones are used to block the effects of testosterone.
