Recently Diagnosed or Relapsed? Stop Looking For a Miracle Cure, and Use Evidence-Based Therapies To Enhance Your Treatment and Prolong Your Remission

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.

Multiple Myeloma Therapy, Magnesium, Bone Mineral Density

Greater magnesium intake was significantly related to higher Bone Mineral Density (BMD) in white women and men…

Because about 90% of multiple myeloma patients and survivors will experience lytic lesions and bone damage at some point during their lives with MM, maintaining bone health is always a concern for the MM patient and survivor. Multiple myeloma therapy must include magnesium, exercise, green leafy veggies, etc.

 Further, according to International Osteoporosis Foundation, osteoporosis is estimated to affect 200 million women worldwide – approximately one-tenth of women aged 60, one-fifth of women aged 70, two-fifths of women aged 80 and two-thirds of women aged 90 (240).”

I am a long-term multiple myeloma (MM) survivor and MM coach. As of 2016, there were a reported 113,000 people livine with multiple myeloma in the United States. 

According to the study linked and excerpted below, magnesium supplementation enhances bone mineral density. The magnesium supplement that I take is Life Extension Neuro-Mag Magnesium L-Threonate.

And magnesium l-theonate has been shown to improve bone mineral density.

Bone mineral density utilization in patients with newly diagnosed multiple myeloma.

“Bone disease is a major cause for morbidity in multiple myeloma (MM), with the main focus concerning the manifestation as osteolytic lesions. Bone mineral loss is another reflection of myeloma bone involvement.

However, in patients who achieved complete response (CR) and in those who retained CR during follow-up, femoral BMD increased as well. Because correlation between BMD and the extent of osteolytic lesions was not seen, our data support the recent exclusion of BMD assessment from the definition of symptomatic myeloma.

Still, its use should be considered for evaluation of age- or therapy-related osteoporosis.”

Magnesium intake from food and supplements is associated with bone mineral density in healthy older white subjects.

“RESULTS: In white, but not black, men and women, magnesium intake was positively associated with BMD of the whole body after adjustment for age, self-report of osteoporosis or fracture in adulthood, caloric intake, Ca and vitamin D intake, BMI, smoking status, alcohol intake, physical activity, thiazide diuretic use, and estrogen use in women…”

CONCLUSION: Greater magnesium intake was significantly related to higher BMD in white women and men. The lack of association observed in black women and men may be related to differences in Ca regulation or in nutrient reporting.
