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.

HyperBaric Oxygen Therapy Stimulates Stem Cells, Heals Radiation Damage and may even Kill Cancer

I am a long-term Multiple Myeloma survivor and MM coach. HBOT is an ideal multiple myeloma therapy for the newly diagnosed MM survivor about to undergo an ASCT and local radiation.

As a long-term cancer survivor who studies both conventional and non-conventional cancer therapies,  I have a unique perspective about what works and what doesn’t work for healing all types of health problems. Painful experience has taught me that side effects from multiple myeloma therapy (in this case, radiation fibrosis and/or stem cell engraftment) is as serious a health challenge as any other.

I mean, what could concussions, stem cells and radiation damage all have in common? Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT).

The only other evidence-based therapy discussed in the article linked and excerpted below is what the journalist calls “ a cheap nutritional supplement, N-acetylcysteine.” Though the article questions the evidence-based nature of NAC’s ability to heal concussions, the study’s are good enough for me.

I’ve tried HBOT and I supplement with N-acetylcysteine.

Have you been diagnosed with multiple myeloma? Are you considering an autologous stem cell transplant?

Do you have radiation damage? Are you a cancer survivor? If you would like to learn more about evidence-based, non-conventional therapies scroll down the page, post a question or a comment and I will reply ASAP.

Thank you,

Unique Patterns of Lymphocyte Recovery Induced By Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Given Prior to Stem Cell Transplantation: A Case Series Report on Three Patients

“Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is being studied at our institution to improve hematopoietic stem cell homing and engraftment. Pre-clinical experiments have demonstrated that HBO therapy to the recipient prior to umbilical cord blood CD34+ cell infusion induces a low Erythropoietin (EPO) environment that results decreased erythroid differentiation and instead favored early bone marrow retention of CD34 cells with positive impact on engraftment in animal experiments1.

We hereby report a case series of 3 patients who received HBO on ongoing clinical trials and demonstrated unique patterns for lymphocyte recovery associated with unique clinical presentations. Patients were exposed to 100% oxygen at 2.5 atmosphere pressure for total of 2 hours prior to hematopoietic stem cell infusion…

Three unique patterns of lymphocyte recovery are seen in association with HBO therapy given prior to hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. We hypothesize that these patterns of lymphocyte recovery are secondary to engraftment kinetics caused by HBO and low EPO environment at the time of stem cell infusion.

We suspect the early robust lymphocytosis may have played a role enhancing the inflammatory milieu resulting in fevers, rigors and extensive skin rash in case one, uveitis with CSF and aqueous chamber lymphocytosis in case two and persistent peripheral lymphocytosis in case three. In all three cases, the T cell exhibited normal antigen expression on flow cytometry…”

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy for late radiation tissue injury in gynecologic malignancies

“Based on the evidence and expert consensus opinion,

  • HBO2 is likely effective for late radiation tissue injury of the pelvis, with demonstrated efficacy specifically for radiation damage to the anus and rectum;
  • the main indication for HBO2 therapy in gynecologic oncology is in the management of otherwise refractory chronic radiation injury;
  • HBO2 may provide symptomatic benefit in certain clinical settings (for example, cystitis, soft-tissue necrosis, and osteonecrosis); and
  • HBO2 may reduce the complications of gynecologic surgery in patients undergoing surgical removal of necrosis…”

Stem cell mobilization by hyperbaric oxygen

The results from this study demonstrate that exposure to HBO2 will cause rapid mobilization of SPCs in humans, and the number of SPCs remain elevated in blood over the course of 20 HBO2treatments. On the basis of the responses in normal human controls, it appears that previous exposure to radiation diminishes the response to one HBO2 treatment. Radiotherapy is known to reduce the mobilization that occurs in response to chemotherapeutic agents and growth factors…”

Effective Concussion Treatment Remains Frustratingly Elusive, Despite a Booming Industry

“One patient, Rashada Parks, said that she had struggled with neck pain, mood swings and concentration problems ever since she fell and hit her head more than three years ago…. But after 40 hourlong treatments, or dives, in a hyperbaric chamber, her symptoms have subsided

While the vast majority quickly recover with rest, a small percentage of patients experience lingering effects a year or longer afterward. Along with memory issues, symptoms can include headaches, dizziness and vision and balance problems…

While agreement exists on the symptoms that define a concussion at the time when one occurs, a similar definition did not — and still does not — exist to describe what happens after a concussion, including how the injury’s symptoms change over time…

Dr. Harch, the New Orleans-area physician, is a true believer in the benefits of hyperbaric oxygen. In his book, “The Oxygen Revolution,” he claims the treatment not only helps treat post-concussion syndrome, but also autism and Alzheimer’s disease

A concussion expert with the Mayo Clinic, Dr. David W. Dodick, said he believed a cheap nutritional supplement, N-acetylcysteine, could help treat concussion symptoms, and he hoped to study it…”
