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.

The cartoon in the upper right corner of the post is a bit dark. But I believe strongly in the importance of exercise…especially for the multiple myeloma patient.
This blog post is the gateway to my research and writing about myeloma and EXER over that 10 or so years. The dozen or so blog posts linked below explain my experiences with myeloma coupled with research about frequent, moderate exercise.
In short, multiple myeloma therapy these days is all about high-tech medicine. Chemo and radiation dominate the thinking of myeloma oncologists. At the same time, chemotherapy and radiation will undoubtedly saddle the myeloma survivor with short, long-term and late stage side effects. Side effects that can be minimized or possibly prevented altogether with frequent, moderate exercise.
I’m not saying that myeloma patients don’t need chemo to manage their myeloma. They do. I’m saying that patients and survivors need evidence-based, non-toxic, non-conventional therapies AS WELL AS their surgery, chemo and radiation. EXER is an ideal complementary therapy.
And the real kicker? Whatever exercise routine you choose can be simple. Simple as in going for a 20 minute walk twice a day. Which by-the-way will help to manage the anxiety, depression and negative emotions that can come with a diagnosis of an incurable blood cancer.
Or perhaps you would prefer to participate in a yoga class each week. Or consider whole-body vibration (blog posted below).
I’ve been standing on my vibration machine every night for about 10 minutes for years now.
The average age of the newly diagnosed multiple myeloma patient, according to research, is 70 years of age. There is a good chance that either/or your age or your myeloma has started you on the path to osteoporosis aka reduced bone health.
I can go on but I think you get the point. Please read the posts below for an explanation of the bullet points above. Let me know if you have any questions.
