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.

Multiple Myeloma & Sjogren’s Syndrome- Diet, Supplements

The development of MM in the setting of SS is unusual and the aetiopathogenic mechanism still unknown. However, some elements orient toward a common pathway for these two diseases

Multiple Myeloma (MM) and Sjogren’s Syndrome (SS). According to the research linked and excerpted below, MM is related not only to SS but to many autoimmune disorders. The post below is from an SS survivor who’s mom suffered with MM until her death. I wish I could offer more information.

My mother suffered starvation and dehydration up to the end from once a vibrant woman to 60+ lb bones and skin due to chemo that destroyed her body. Her drs lied to her telling her chemo was her only chance of surviving Multiple Myeloma. Both of us with Sjogren’s Syndrome is common to develop MM.  My labs showed I had MM cancer ratio cells in blood…not active.

I looked all the books she had on how to cure cancer. The were full of foods that were high in Omega 6’s, high carbohydrates, high glycemic, mycotoxins, and dairy. ALL THAT FEEDS CANCER.

After 4+ years being on a strict plant based diet, my lab results for liver, inflamation, AI, etc. did not improve but had gotten worse and did not improve…I also suffer from numerous health and organ issues. Being sick and weak, I had to re-evaluate my diet and food I was eating as strict plant based diet wasn’t helping me.

Long story short, I changed my diet to:

  • a low carbohydrates healthy diet,
  • 4 oz of grass fed/finished meats & organs high in omega 3’s (beef, chicken, fish, eggs, butter)-
  • Eliminated all starchy & high glycemic vegetables/roots
  • to high omega 3’s green leafy and cruciferous vegetables.
  • No high glycemic fruits except 1/4 cup of berries a day.
  • ABSOLUTELY NO GRAINS IN ANY FORM Or PRODUCTS CONTAINING THEM.
  • No nuts due to all contaminated with some form of mycotoxins.
  • No high omega 6’s oils…
  • EVO heated to 200 degrees becomes toxic.
  • No dairy due to caseins
  • No sugars or artificial sweetners of any kind.

I do make an excepion to a drop on raw unfiltered local honey a day…but no more due to high glycemic. Organic non-GMO.

I supplement with food based:

  • Vitamin C,
  • D3,
  • Zinc,
  • toxin free Omega 3’s fish oil (sardines, anchovies,  small fish),
  • earth minerals,
  • magnesium malate,
  • potassium,
  • choline,

Grass fed/finish collagen I & III taken separately from II & HA,

probiotics? Multiples, MegaResveratrol (I don’t recommend brands but found these were the only true 99% trans-revseratol used in all universities, govt, and medical studies)….

until I run out to see which ones I can eliminate that are not missed as eating right eliminates the need for supplements.

In a few months from eating this way,  I went from being bed ridden and weak to losing 70 lbs, full of energy, and able to see a future where before it wasn’t a possibility.

I can not say this will work for you and hope you do research all the foods you eat that is contributing to your failed health to feel better.  My goal is not to feed MM cancer cells to become active in my body and keep my immune system healthy.  As far as Sjogrens Syndrome…it hasn’t gotten worse and hope it too goes into remission.

What you need to know about Sjogren’s syndrome

“Sjogren’s is a chronic disorder of the immune system. It is an autoimmune condition, meaning that healthy tissues and cells are mistakenly attacked by the immune system.

It happens when white blood cells infiltrate saliva glands, tear glands, and other exocrine tissues, leading to decrease in tear and saliva production. This can lead to dryness in the mouth, eyes, skin, nose, upper respiratory tract, and vagina.

It is associated with other autoimmune disorders, including rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupuserythematosus, and primary biliary cholangitis.

Sjögren’s syndrome associated with multiple myeloma.

“Treatment with vincristine, adriamycin and dexamethasone (VAD) was started and bisphosphonate was administered regularly. After three cycles of VAD therapy, the MM regressed without any evidence of SS symptoms. The development of MM in the setting of SS is unusual and the aetiopathogenic mechanism still unknown. However, some elements orient toward a common pathway for these two diseases, like the clinical remission of SS after treatment of the MM, such as described in our patient.”

Autoimmune manifestations in patients with multiple myeloma and monoclonal gammopathy of undetermined significance

“Findings– Scientific literature on autoimmune conditions in patients with MM and MGUS consists of several case series and a multitude of case reports. Our analysis suggests an increased prevalence of autoimmune conditions in patients with MM and monoclonal gammopathy of undetermined significance (MGUS), including various autoimmune hematologic and rheumatologic conditions among other entities. Conversely, persons with various autoimmune conditions tend to have a higher prevalence of MGUS and MM than the general population.

Conclusions- Future research is required to explore further the link between MGUS/MM and autoimmune disorders. Inflammation in the setting of autoimmunitymay serve as a trigger for MGUS and MM. In addition, a common genetic susceptibility for developing both an autoimmune disease and MM/MGUS might also exist. Autoimmune hematologic and rheumatologic diseases may pose important clinical problems for the MM patients. Therefore, a catalogue of these problems is important so that physicians are able to consider, identify and address them promptly…”
