Recently Diagnosed or Relapsed? Stop Looking For a Miracle Cure, and Use Evidence-Based Therapies To Enhance Your Treatment and Prolong Your Remission

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 single most important thing about MM is that conventional oncology considers MM to be incurable. If you pursue conventional oncologic therapies exclusively, you will probably relapse multiple times until your onc. tells you that “we can do nothing more for you.”

The problem with the usual “Multiple Myeloma Explained” scenario given by conventional oncology is me or my life as a MM survivor.  I have lived in complete remission since 1999. I underwent an autologous stem cell transplant (ASCT) in 12/95, went into remission twice, relapsed twice and was told “there is nothing more we can do for you.” I underwent a “quack” cancer therapy, reached remission and have remained in complete remission by living an evidence-based anti-MM lifestyle.

My point is that when your oncologist tells you that myeloma is incurable, he or she doesn’t talk about evidence-based but non-toxic, non-conventional therapies.

The conventional Multiple Myeloma Explained is about:

  1. Multiple Myeloma Symptoms
  2. Multiple Myeloma Diagnosis
  3. Multiple Myeloma Induction
  4. Autologous Stem Cell Transplant
  5. Low-dose Maintenance Therapy
  6. Multi-drug Resistance
  7. End Stage

I don’t mean to sound harsh when I explain that conventional myeloma treatment is a foregone conclusion. I have known dozens of MM patients and survivors over the years and each has gone through 1-7 above. The progression may take 1-3 years or it may take ten years. But the result is always the same.

I am both a long-term MM survivor and MM cancer coach. Needless to say…I take a somewhat contrarian view to multiple myeloma compared to the average hematologist/oncologist. I have researched and created a MM Cancer Coaching program based on what I do and why I do it.

I found WebMD’s multiple myeloma to be a good explanation of the basics:

What Is Multiple Myeloma?

“In multiple myeloma, a type of white blood cell called a plasma cell multiplies unusually. Normally, they make antibodies that help fight infections. But in multiple myeloma, they release too much protein (called immunoglobulin) into the bones and blood. It builds up throughout the body, causing organ damage. 

The plasma cells also crowd normal blood cells in the bone. They release chemicals that dissolve bone. The weak areas of bone created by this are called lytic lesions.

As multiple myeloma gets worse, those plasma cells begin to spill out of the bone marrow and spread through the body. This causes more organ damage…”

Symptoms

“Early on, multiple myeloma may cause no symptoms. As time passes, you may have:

  • Bone pain
  • Weakness and fatigue
  • Weight loss”

Diagnosis

Your doctor may test you for multiple myeloma if a blood test reveals:

  • Too much calcium in your blood (your doctor may call it “hypercalcemia”)
  • Anemia (too few red blood cells)
  • Kidney problems
  • High protein levels in your blood combined with a low albumin level (your doctor may say you have a “globulin gap”)

If your doctor thinks you have multiple myeloma, he’ll test your blood, urine, and bones. Some tests he may order include:

  • Electrophoresis, which measures immunoglobulins (something your body makes when it’s fighting something)
  • Blood urea nitrogen, also known as BUN, and creatinine — to check how well your kidneys are working
  • A CBC, which stands for complete blood count, which measures and counts the cells in your blood
