Multiple Myeloma Requires “Body-wide Immune Response”

Share Button

Fighting off cancer (MM) requires the concerted efforts of immune molecules throughout the body, rather than just in the tumor itself…

There is a long and growing list of FDA approved chemotherapy regimens that are cytotoxic to Multiple Myeloma (MM). When newly diagnosed MM patients undergo a typical induction therapy such as RVd (revlimid, velcade and dexamethasone) they are almost guaranteed that their MM will respond. The challenge that all MMers face is that MM always comes back. MMers always relapse. 

The article linked below talks about the need for a body-wide immune response to fight off cancer. It makes sense to me that since MM is a systemic or body-wide cancer, MM requires a body-wide immune response.

I am a long-term MM survivor and MM Cancer Coach.  I believe that the evidence-based, non-toxic, anti-MM regimen that I follow daily provides a body-wide immune response that has kept me in complete remission from my MM since 1999.

I rely on evidence-based, non-toxic, anti-MM nutrition, supplementation, bone health, lifestyle and even mind-body therapies to keep me in CR from my MM.

Have you been diagnosed with MM? Are you taking or considering either induction therapy and/or an autologous stem cell transplant? To get the most out of both your conventional (FDA approved) and non-conventional therapies consider working with an experienced MM coach.

Whether you are debating treatment options, currently undergoing treatment and experiencing painful side effects, or trying to figure out how to stay in remission, I want to share what I’ve learned from 22 years of full remission from Multiple Myeloma.

Join me in just a few minutes for a FREE webinar where we will:      

  • Identify the side effects– both short and long term– specific to your chemotherapy or radiation regimen.
  • Learn about what integrative therapies are and how you can use them to optimize the efficacy of your specific chemotherapy while healing short term and long term side effects.
  • Go over the 12 pillars of the Multiple Myeloma Cancer Coaching Program and how they can help you heal.

As a part of the webinar, you will receive two of the 12 cancer coaching guides for FREE as well.

I hope you’ll join me. This information is the culmination of 22 years of my personal journey to achieve and maintain full remission from Multiple Myeloma.

Bodywide immune response important for fighting cancer, researchers say

“Fighting off cancer requires the concerted efforts of immune molecules throughout the body, rather than just in the tumor itself…

This finding suggests that, although the initial immune response occurred primarily in the tumor, immune responses in other parts of the body are likely responsible for sustaining the immune attack

“In the past, researchers focused on understanding in very minute detail what is happening at the molecular level in immune cells inside the tumor,” said Engleman. “But we took an approach that allowed us to zoom out and look at the immune system as a whole. This enabled us to unveil how immune cells work together throughout the body to reject a tumor, and the approach promises to be widely useful in many clinical situations.”
