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.

Hi David, I was wondering if your multiple myeloma cancer coaching program is suitable for someone like me. I was diagnosed with with lambda light chain multiple myeloma in 2015. I refused conventional treatment as at the time as I felt quite well.
40% of my blood plasma is cancerous, meaning I have MM cells in 40% of my blood. I have no symptoms. I have been doing alternative treatments to stay well.
I am interested in your research into alternative treatments. Have you worked with anyone who has not done conventional treatment but alternative instead and remained well? Madge
Infection is the most common cause of death (COD) among multiple myeloma patients. Infection is both a multiple myeloma symptomand a multiple myeloma side effect. Myeloma patients are often diagnosed with anemia caused by myeloma cells crowding out red blood cells. Myeloma patients often develop a side effect from chemotherapy called neutropenia.
The challenge of all MM survivors is to prevent infections caused by your cancer as well as infections caused by the therapies prescribed to manage your cancer.
Problems with the health of your bone marrow due to:
“You’ve received a multiple myeloma diagnosis. You’re scared because you’ve been told that MM is incurable, because you’ve never heard of this type of cancer before and because of something called Bence-Jones proteins, is/are damaging your kidney health…
Complicating your fear is talk of diagnostic tests- symptoms, staging, blood, urine, bone imaging- and on and on. Unless you are a medical professional yourself, you probably find the diagnostic testing jargon to be confusing and possibly frustrating.
My experience as a MM survivor is to start at the end and work your way forward.
Kidney failure is the second most common COD (cause of death). You have years of MM survivorship ahead of you. You want to do everything possible to protect or even improve your kidney health.

For reference, MM oncologists, patients and survivors often use the acronym CRAB when discussing a patient’s symptoms. CRAB stands for Calcium, Renal, Anemia and Bones. When talking about light chains or BJP, we are talking about the R or renal aka your kidney function…”
