I just read your info on the Broccoli treatment and I do not find the instructions for 45 days. I have had BPH for 25 years. A friend told me that 45 day treatment is 7 days on and 3 days off for the 45 day period. Are the 3 day periods included in the 45 days?
No. 45 days don't include 3 days periods.

Should one avoid spices completely or can they be taken in small quantities?
Chilli, curry and black pepper are absolutly forbidden. Salt is allowed. But don't add anythings to the broccoli broth to liven the taste up.

I think your protocol is working. I just finished my Second three-day-off period, and as soon as it began I felt 70% better, first time in 6 weeks. Does this sound typical? Should I keep going after 21 days? Should I take Quercitin pills afterwards?
Yes, it sounds typical. Broccoli contains several kinds of bioflavonoids also quercetin, it is not necessary to take extra quercetin pills. You destroy the active bioflavonoid equilibrium, if you add extra quercetin pills to the broccoli broth.

Is it ok if I grind the broccoli into small pieces before boiling it for 7mins, so that there is minimum wastage of the broccoli.?

I am in the middle of my 5th week of the 45 day broccoli treatment. I am carefully following your instructions, but unfortunately, I am not feeling any improvement. I still loose sleep at night and I have pain that moves around in my back and I have a weak urine stream. Doctors tell me that I have non-bacterial prostatitis. Do you think that I should continue weeks 5 & 6 of broccoli treatment? Any suggestions?
If you have no improvements within 21 days, it is not necessary to follow the broccoli treatment.

If I am not cured from the broccoli, but feel better, can I do it every day for my whole life? Is it safe to do that? Will it make me healthier cholesterol and anticancer too?
It is not necessary to do it every day for your whole life. It is also not safe, every day to consume broccoli broth.

Must you adhere to the dietary recommendations (no spice, animal fats, etc.) during the 3 days off?
You can consume only in moderation.

I have a problem. My partner can't understand why boiling the broccoli is better than eating the same quantity raw or steamed. She worries about destroying the nutrients.
It is necessary to boil the broccoli, because raw broccoli contains some enzymes (like myrosinase), which are causes different metabolic reactions so that the antibiotic activity of ingridients of broccoli reduce. The simple way to avoid (destroy) the enzymes are to boil the raw broccoli for 5-6 minutes. After boiling all 8 phytochemicals (bioflavonoids) which are very effective against urogenital tract infections. Against prostatitis, BPH and uro genital tract infections we don't need the enzymes, but we needs the bioflavonoids. It is not possible to destroy the valuable bioflavonoids via boiling (but not more than 7 minutes).

Absolutely not right. Don't add anything to liven the taste up.

I started the revised 10 day broccoli treatment about 8 days ago. For the past 5 days I have felt a tickling sensation in the prostate. I do feel better than I did before I started the treatment.

Yes. You should continue 45 days treatment.
