Multiple Myeloma Chemotherapy- Low Platelets? Low Red Blood Cells?

Share Button

Low platelets and anemia come with both multiple myeloma chemotherapy ask well as from MM itself- consider non-toxic therapies.

Probably the single most often side effect cited by patient undergoing multiple myeloma chemotherapy is Thrombocytopenia aka low platelets. A close second is probably Anemia aka low red blood cells. Cancer coaching clients frequently ask me how to raise their levels of platelets and RBC’s.

Low platelets and/or low RBC’s can not only cause immune disfunction and fatigue respectively but these conditions can cause your oncologist to halt or slow your chemotherapy treatments. Which can allow your multiple myeloma to start growing once again.

According to the article linked below, I can now cite papaya leaf extract for it’s ability to stimulate the body’s production of both platelets and RBC’s. This evidence-based, non-toxic therapy can be added to the host of non-toxic, anti-MM therapies that can both fight MM as well as enhance the efficacy of MM chemotherapy regimens.

I am both a MM survivor and MM cancer coach.

I think on balance its unlikely to work for most

I think mr emerson you’re generating false hope in a rather unscientific way

    David Emerson says 6 years ago

    Hi Ian-

    I am open to suggestions. What have you found to be more effective? Many chemotherapy regimens don’t work for many on balance. And if they do reduce a cancer patients cancer, chemotherapy regimens almost always cause collateral damage. So I am in a
    difficult position trying to research possible therapies to improve the lives of chemo patients.

    Let me know, thanks for your input.
