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.

Mind-Body – “We’re In This Together”

How well cancer patients fared after chemotherapy was affected by their social interaction (mind-body therapy) with other patients during treatment…The best outcome was when patients interacted with someone who survived for five years or longer…

Mind-body therapy is powerful. Cancer patients form bonds with other cancer survivors, especially when they have the same cancer.  I’ve seen it happen in settings beyond relationships formed at the hospital.

This may sound self-serving but I think cancer patients who hang around me also live longer. We talk about all things cancer. Not just mind-body therapy. We talk about our experiences with both conventional and non-conventional therapies. We love to share our collateral damage aka side effects stories.

The bad news is that we may share TMI (too much information). The good news is that we live longer.

Social interaction affects cancer patients’ response to treatment

“How well cancer patients fared after chemotherapy was affected by their social interaction with other patients during treatment, according to a new study. Cancer patients were a little more likely to survive for five years or more after chemotherapy if they interacted during chemotherapy with other patients who also survived for five years or more…

“People model behavior based on what’s around them,”  “For example, you will often eat more when you’re dining with friends, even if you can’t see what they’re eating. When you’re bicycling, you will often perform better when you’re cycling with others, regardless of their performance…”

The researchers examined the total time a patient spent with the same patients undergoing chemotherapy and their five-year survival rate…They also reviewed a room schematic to confirm the assumption that patients were potentially positioned to interact….”

The best outcome was when patients interacted with someone who survived for five years or longer…”

In sickness and in health: how marriage helps cancer patients

A growing body of research evidence shows being married greatly increases patients’ chances of being cured of cancer. But while there’s a clear link between marriage status and treatment outcome, the benefit is likely to extend to anyone in a close personal relationship….

The most recent such work is from doctors and scientists at Harvard University who published their findings in the peer-reviewed journal Cancer. It shows people who are married are less likely to die from head and neck cancer…

These findings are consistent with other research that has found links between marriage and treatment success in a range of cancer types including prostate, uterine and breast and pancreatic

A study of prostate cancer patients showed married men survived significantly longer after diagnosis and had a lower risk of dying from their cancer than those who were divorced, single, separated or widowed. Another study that also used the SEERS program found a survival advantage for married women with uterine cancer, compared to unmarried and widowed women…”
