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- “The Existence of Chemo-Brain” Podcast- Dr. Kristin Campbell

As a multiple myeloma (MM) survivor and MM cancer coach I’m conflicted. I am angry that Post-chemotherapy cognitive impairment aka chemo-brain’s existence as a side effect is still being questioned. On the other hand, twenty plus years as a cancer survivor has taught me that conventional oncology moves slowly.

  • Chemo-brain is an identifiable side effect and
  • Chemo-brain can be healed.

As a long-term multiple myeloma survivor I have to add that chemo-brain rehabilitation requires both exercise as well as nutrition, supplementation and lifestyle therapies. The payoff of all these therapies is that they reduce your risks of MM relapse, secondary cancers and late stage side effects in general. Though the research is limited at this point, I believe that nutrition and exercise will help dementia.

If you listen to the podcast below what you will take-away is that chemo-brain, first and foremost, is brain damage. Toxic chemotherapy damages your cognitive function. Therefore what Dr.Kristin Campbell is really talking about is the importance of frequent, moderate exercise to brain health.

Whether we are talking about chemo-brain, dementia or any other form of brain function, frequent moderate exercise is an effective therapy.

I am a MM survivor and MM cancer coach. Have you been diagnosed with multiple myeloma? Do you have chemo-brain? To learn more about evidence-based, non-toxic therapies to heal your chemo-brain please scroll down the page, post a question or comment and I will reply to you ASAP.

thank you,

I do not see a link to the chemo brain podcast. Just the phone number and a reference to exercise.

    Hi Deborah,

    Being a podcast from 2015, the links broke. I have fixed them. Thanks for the feedback.
