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.

I was diagnosed with multiple myeloma, an incurable blood cancer, in early 1994. I underwent an autologous stem cell transplant (ASCT) as therapy for in December of 1995. I knew that there would be side effects- hair loss (alopecia), nausea, etc, you know, the usual side effects. It didn’t occur to me that my body’s chemistry would be changed forever. Multiple myeloma stem cell transplant lowers the body’s testosterone.
I’ve been coaching myeloma patients for years. I have learned that most MM patients need toxic chemotherapy or radiation from time to time to manage their incurable bone cancer. But I have also learned that too much toxicity can be very damaging to the human body.
I have also learned that there are a host of evidence-based, non-toxic therapies that are cytotoxic to multiple myeloma.
An autologous stem cell transplant is aggressive, high dose chemotherapy. An ASCT does NOT increase overall MM patient survival. An ASCT increases PFS (progression-free survival). Please confirm this important distinction with your oncologist.
My belief is that newly diagnosed MM patients can choose many different therapy options. It is essential however, that MM patients understand the risk of short, long-term and last stage side effects.

Dropping levels of this male hormone can cause more than sexual problems. It can also affect your mood, weight, and concentration.
“In some labs, the normal levels (determined by a simple blood test) of a man’s testosterone will measure 300 to 1,000 nanograms per deciliter. However, it’s important to confirm low levels of testosterone since many men will have normal levels on repeated testing due to fluctuations of the hormone.”
