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 am a long-term survivor of the incurable blood cancer called multiple myeloma. After years of healing my body, I think my immune system is okay but living in a time of COVID-19 aka coronavirus, I like to think ahead. I find myself thinking through various what-if scenarios.
A couple of weeks ago I wrote another blog post about MM and the coronavirus. I did some research into infectious diseases in general. Boy was that an eye-opener. I’m not just talking about virus’ either- plague, smallpox, fevers, influenza, typhus, and on and on. Let’s just say that germophobes may not want to read about all of the infectious diseases in the twentieth century.
After my research the conclusion I came to is that if you are young and healthy, you stand a reasonable chance at managing an infectious disease. COVID-19 is a great example of this. If you’re young and healthy, your risk of getting the virus is small. Further, if you are young and healthy, your risk of dying from COVID-19 is even smaller.
However, if you are a 60 year old cancer survivor who lives with chemotherapy-induced heart failure, your risks are much greater for all sorts of possible health problems if you get COVID-19.
For the record, I’m sure that conventional medicine is working their butts off trying to figure out a vaccine, trying to treat coronavirus patients, doing everything they can to manage a difficult situation. But my experience living with my incurable cancer has conditioned me not to rely completely on conventional medicine. For anything.
My solution to the COVID-19, coronavirus, infectious disease challenge? Nutrition, Lifestyle and Nutritional supplementation. From supplements such as omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin C and D3 (discussed in the short video linked below) to curcumin/turmeric, onion, garlic, etc. listed below.
I don’t take every single supplement/herb listed below. I take supplements daily as well as eat many of the therapies listed below. It helps to have a chef as a wife. Dawn is a wiz at including garlic in our foods.
My life as a multiple myeloma survivor has taught me that life is largely based on risks. My goal is to decrease my risk of getting COVID-19 or any other infectious disease. And if I am diagnosed with coronavirus some day, I hope to reduce my risks of complications not to mention dying.

Choosing a Natural Antibiotic-
“Antibiotics can fight bacteria, fungi, and some parasites, but not viruses. That’s why doctors won’t prescribe you antibiotics for a viral infection or flu. In the same way, you shouldn’t attempt to use natural antibiotics to fight viruses- they simply won’t do anything…
Make sure you talk with your medical practitioner about what kind of natural antibiotic (or anti-viral) is appropriate to help treat your specific health condition. This information is not intended to be a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis or treatment. Always seek the advice of your physician or other qualified health provider with any questions about your medical condition and/or current medication…
Natural Antibacterials- Antibacterials are used against E. Coli or Salmonella, H. pylori, ear infections, strep throat, or wound infections.
Since ancient times, herbs have been used as natural treatments for various illnesses, including viral infections.
Due to their concentration of potent plant compounds, many herbs help fight viruses and are favored by practitioners of natural medicine.
At the same time, the benefits of some herbs are only supported by limited human research, so you should take them with a grain of salt.
