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.

If it’s one thing that I’ve learned over the 25+ years of surviving Multiple Myeloma (MM), it is that myeloma patients, survivors and caregivers need more than what conventional oncology offers to hope to cure their MM. They need mind-body therapy. Conventional oncology considers MM to be incurable. I have lived with MM since my diagnosis in early 1994.
Yes, you read that correctly. I consider religion, prayer, spirituality, mind-body, etc. to be myeloma therapy. Just as important to the MM patient than any chemotherapy. Not just as a part of end-of-life coping.
I’m saying that my spirituality, sense-of-purpose, goals, meditation, helped me manage my MM since my diagnosis in 1994.
While conventional oncology spends very little time studying the area of mind-body therapies and cancer, evidence-based research clearly indicates that “getting your mind right” (Cool Hand Luke- Paul Newman-1967) is part and parcel to living with multiple myeloma.
Pray, talk to a psychologist, meditate, practice yoga, find a purpose, hug your kids and make-up-your-mind to managing the MM roller coaster. Myeloma is one tough blood cancer and you will need all the help you can get.
I am both a long-term multiple myeloma survivor and MM cancer coach. If you would like to learn more about MM cancer coaching and mind-body therapies, please tell me about your diagnosis and tell me what’s on your mind. An experienced MM survivor and MM cancer coach can help.
“Despite the difficulty in clearly defining and measuring spirituality, a growing literature describes its importance in oncology and survivorship. Religious/spiritual beliefs influence patients’ decision-making with respect to both complementary therapies and aggressive care at the end of life…”
“A doctor at a Philadelphia hospital says prayer is not a cure for cancer — but can sometimes be as important as science in helping patients heal.
Because the brain basic body functions like heart rate, blood pressure, and the immune system, he said, “there’s evidence to show that by doing these practices, you can cause a lot of different changes all the way throughout the body, which could have a healing effect.”
