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.

With every multiple myeloma diagnosis comes a prognosis. It is essential for your oncologist to explain overall survival rates to you based on the conventional standard-of-care. Please remember that the conventional oncologic definition of cure is five (5) years from your original diagnosis.
I was diagnosed with multiple myeloma in early 1994. I was end-stage by September of 1997. I underwent a controversial non-FDA approved therapy. I reached complete remission from my MM by 4/99. My caregiver wife supported me every step of the way.
Skip ahead 25 plus years. No, of course surviving multiple myeloma is not easy. But sharing your pain and suffering with a spouse/caregiver sure helps.
Each therapy has been studied to help the patient decide how aggressive or not to be with his or her conventional multiple myeloma therapies.
Caregiving a MM patient is one of the great under-appreciated jobs today. Ask my wife.
I am both a MM survivor and MM cancer coach. To learn about other lifestyle therapies that will increase your odds of survival, please scroll down the page, post a question or comment and I will reply to you ASAP.

Another study that also used the SEERS program found a survival advantage for married women with uterine cancer, compared to unmarried and widowed women…”
“Unmarried patients with bladder urothelial carcinoma have a higher risk for cancer-specific mortality than those who are married, according to the results of a recent study by Junjie Yu, MD, and colleagues (Medicine [Baltimore]. 2018;97:e11378).
Existing literature has shown that marital status affects survival rates among patients with many types of cancer. In addition, research indicates that widowed patients may be at a higher risk for cancer death than their unwidowed peers…”
