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.

Newly diagnosed myeloma patients are often told that their cancer “is incurable but very treatable.” As if that introduction is not confusing enough, conventional oncology talks only about FDA approved therapies- multiple myeloma chemotherapy, surgery and radiation. While C-B-D oil, according to the study linked below, treats MM, your oncologist will not talk about it.
Most newly diagnosed mmers find this statement/situation to be confusing, bewildering and downright annoying. It has taken me every bit of the more than 20 years since my original myeloma diagnosis to understand what it means for a cancer to be incurable but treatable.
What have I learned about MM over the past 20+ years? Myeloma is about two things 1) symptoms (boneside effects from toxic chemotherapy.
MMers usually don’t die from their cancer. They die from health problems caused by their cancer such as bone damage and/or from the toxicity caused by chemotherapy and radiation.
The solution? Take an integrative approach to managing your multiple myeloma. Enhance the efficacy of chemotherapy and while you reduce the toxicity.
Based on the study linked below, cannabidiol and cannabis can work both on its own and with Velcade to induce cell death in Multiple Myeloma cells. If you or a loved one have been diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma, let me say this loud and clear:
It is critical that you become an active participant in your care. Learn everything you can.
I am alive today largely because I took the time to find out everything I could about Multiple Myeloma and sought out the full spectrum of evidence-based MM therapies both conventional (FDA approved) and non-conventional.
Please watch the video below to learn more about the evidence-based, integrative therapies to combat treatment side effects and enhance your chemotherapy.
Your decision-making begins by learning about the full spectrum of evidence-based myeloma therapies, both conventional and non-conventional. Here are some questions you may have right now:

The PubMed study linked and excepted below cites the ability cannabidiol to kill mm cells and increase the efficacy of Velcade (bortezomib).
I wish you all the best on your Multiple Myeloma journey.
“Multiple myeloma (MM) is a plasma cell (PC) malignancy characterised by the accumulation of a monoclonal PC population in the bone marrow (BM).
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid with antitumoural activities, and the transient receptor potential vanilloid type-2 (TRPV2) channel has been reported as a potential CBD receptor.
TRPV2 activation by CBD decreases proliferation and increases susceptibility to drug-induced cell death in human cancer cells.
However, no functional role has been ascribed to CBD and TRPV2 in MM. In this study, we identified the presence of heterogeneous CD138+TRPV2+ and CD138+TRPV2- PC populations in MM patients, whereas only the CD138+ TRPV2- population was present in RPMI8226 and U266 MM cell lines.
Because bortezomib (BORT) is commonly used in MM treatment, we investigated the effects of CBD and BORT in CD138+TRPV2- MM cells and in MM cell lines transfected with TRPV2 (CD138+TRPV2+).
These results showed that CBD by itself or in synergy with BORT strongly inhibited growth, arrested cell cycle progression and induced MM cells death by regulating the ERK, AKT and NF-κB pathways with major effects in TRPV2+ cells. These data provide a rationale for using CBD to increase the activity of proteasome inhibitors in MM.”
