Lose Weight and Fight Your Multiple Myeloma

You have been diagnosed with MGUS, SMM or Multiple Myeloma (MM). What if you could fight your MM AND loose weight at the same time? According to the studies below, loosing those unwanted pounds can help you achieve complete remission from your multiple myeloma.

As you read about various cancer therapies you will become familiar with the terms “angiogenesis” and “anti-inflammatory.” To begin to think through anti-MM nutrition we need to understand that

The fact is that common MM chemotherapy regimens such as Revlimid (lenalidomide) Thalidomide (thalidomid) and Velcade (bortezomib) are referred to as angiogenic chemotherapy drugs. While there are no chemotherapy regimens that are designed to make the cancer patient loose weight, as the article linked and excerpted below states, losing weight is a great way to reduce the risk of cancer or a cancer relapse.

I am both a long-term MM survivor and MM cancer coach. I have been living an antiangiogenic and anti-inflammatory lifestyle through nutrition and supplementation for years now. Do you think my losing 20 pounds  since I reached complete remission in 1999 has helped me remain in complete remission?

Whether you are debating treatment options, currently undergoing treatment and experiencing painful side effects, or trying to figure out how to stay in remission, I want to share what I’ve learned from 22 years of full remission from Multiple Myeloma.


Join me in just a few minutes for a FREE webinar where we will:      

  • Identify the side effects– both short and long term– specific to your chemotherapy or radiation regimen.
  • Learn about what integrative therapies are and how you can use them to optimize the efficacy of your specific chemotherapy while healing short term and long term side effects.
  • Go over the 12 pillars of the Multiple Myeloma Cancer Coaching Program and how they can help you heal.

As a part of the webinar, you will receive two of the 12 cancer coaching guides for FREE as well.

I hope you’ll join me. This information is the culmination of 22 years of my personal journey to achieve and maintain full remission from Multiple Myeloma.

As body mass index increases, so does spread of multiple myeloma

“”Once a person with cancer is out of the normal weight category, their BMI is contributing to multiple myeloma growth and progression,” said Katie DeCicco-Skinner, associate professor of biology at American University and lead study author…

With angiogenesis, cancer cells cannot exist without their own blood supply. We also found the amount of blood vessels that developed was directly proportional to a patient’s BMI.”

“We found that fat cells from obese or morbidly obese patients secreted a high amount of inflammatory proteins, which contributed to tumor progression,” DeCicco-Skinner said…
