Multiple Myeloma an incurable disease, but I have spent the last 25 years in remission using a blend of conventional oncology and evidence-based nutrition, supplementation, and lifestyle therapies from peer-reviewed studies that your oncologist probably hasn't told you about.

As a long-term multiple myeloma survivor, my main concern is remaining in complete remission and living a long, healthy life.
Staying in complete remission from my “incurable” cancer. according to a growing number of studies, diet and nutrition are central to achieving long-term remission. I stumbled on the U.S. News ratings of the “best” diets and I thought I should make an evidence-based case for what I eat, and why I eat it.
Let me begin by saying that many of the diets listed in the U.S. News report make sense for cancer survivors for different reasons. I am simply reporting what I do, what I have done and why I do it (nutritionally speaking).
I will list why I follow the “flexitarian” diet (followed closely by the Meditteranean Diet)

Last but not least, I don’t diet. Being a multiple myeloma survivor is stressful. I got serious about what I put in my body about 20 years ago. My daily routine now is just that, a daily routine. But the flexitarian/Mediterranean diet does offer guidelines that I think MM survivors should understand and follow.

The aim: Weight loss and optimal health.
The claim: Flexitarians weigh 15 percent less than their more carnivorous counterparts; have a lower rate of heart disease, diabetes, and cancer; and live an average of 3.6 years longer.
The theory: Flexitarian is a marriage of two words: flexible and vegetarian. The term was coined more than a decade ago, and in her 2009 book, “The Flexitarian Diet: The Mostly Vegetarian Way to Lose Weight, Be Healthier, Prevent Disease and Add Years to Your Life,” registered dietitian Dawn Jackson Blatner says you don’t have to eliminate meat completely to reap the health benefits associated with vegetarianism – you can be a vegetarian most of the time, but still chow down on a burger or steak when the urge hits.
“Diet-based chemoprevention of cancer has emerged as an interesting approach to evade the disease or even target its early phases, reducing its incidence or slowing down tumor progression. In its basis in the essential role of angiogenesis for tumor growth and metastasis, angioprevention proposes the use of inhibitors of angiogenesis in cancer prevention.
The anti-angiogenic potential exhibited by many natural compounds contained in many Mediterranean diet constituents makes this dietary pattern especially interesting as a source of chemopreventive agents, defined within the angioprevention strategy. In this review, we focus on natural bioactive compounds derived from the main foods included in the Mediterranean diet that display anti-angiogenic activity, as well as their possible use as angiopreventive agents…”
