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.

PeopleBeatingCancer does it all. Researching your multiple myeloma (MM) on the internet is the first step. You can learn about therapies, side effects and how best to treat and manage MM. The second step will be to communicate with fellow MM patients, survivors or caregivers. Ask them about the good, the bad and the ugly. Multiple myeloma survivors love talking about the ugly…
But the real reason to use cancer coaching is to use the experience of a 25 plus year survivor of an “incurable” cancer to navigate those issues that are relevant to you-therapies, oncologists, procedures, side effects, you name it, cancer coaching will guide you through the bewildering labyrinth that a diagnosis of cancer presents.

“Many Americans have fatalistic views on cancer prevention — they believe that getting cancer is a matter of luck or fate. Recent research, published in the Journal of Communication, found that people who use the internet to inquire about their health are more likely to have a positive outlook on cancer prevention and diagnosis.
Chul-joo Lee, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Jeff Niederdeppe, Cornell University, and Derek Freres, University of Pennsylvania, published in the Journal of Communication their findings from a nationally representative survey of adults between the ages of 40 and 70. Conducted longitudinally over the course of a year, the survey collected 2,489 cases and were weighted for age, gender, ethnicity, education and census region. Previous studies have shown that local TV viewing can increase cancer fatalism overtime. This study is the first to examine internet use, and the results were promising.
The findings suggested that people who use the Internet frequently to acquire health or medical information are less likely than those who do not use the Internet for such purposes to hold cancer fatalism over time. More importantly, the research showed that Internet use reduced cancer fatalism among less educated and less health-knowledgeable people to a greater extent than among more educated and more knowledgeable people.
“Reducing cancer fatalism, especially among people with low socioeconomic status, is arguably one of the most important public health goals in the nation,” Lee said. “Studying the effect of Internet use on cancer fatalism is important, considering that the Internet has become a new, very crucial source of health information for the American public these days. These findings have important implications since we showed that the Internet may be a very effective channel of health communication especially for people with low socioeconomic status.”
