My functional medicine doctor is very flabbergasted by my melatonin result of 1707 ng/mg from a DUTCH test I recently took. I have a stable MGUS since detection in 2013 at 54 years old and wonder if my body is producing the melatonin to fight my plasma Cell IGg proliferation orbit is a result of the phenomenon mentioned above which is “secondary to an altered endocrine – metabolic balance caused by an increased demand by the developing tumor.”
Great to read your MGUS has remained stable since 2013 detection. Do you have a question?

Hi David, I am a 6 year survivor of MM and in remission, though lately my light chains have gone up a tad. I am very interested in joining People Beating Cancer, but both Firefox and Microsoft Edge, the two I have on my computer, said that the site is not secure so they won’t connect. Do you know what I can do about that?
By the way, congratulations on your 23 years. I think I read about you much earlier in my journey and am glad to find you here.Reply
While I am sorry to read of your MM diagnosis I have to say that a six year remission is excellent.
It is interesting that you mention the PBC is not secure according to both Firefox and Microsoft Edge. The AD and I understood that the issue
you refer to was only with Chrome. As I understand it, whenever I add an image, photo, etc. directly from the Internet and not from the image library on the PBC site, the “this site is not secure” pops into the url.
We learned of this last week and we are in the process of swapping out wrong images with the right images but it will take a while to update over 1300 blog posts. We will focus on the 200 or so MM themed blog posts first.
In any case, the link to the MM CC program is below. The coupon code is the work “webinar.” Let me know if you have any questions.
Both the Basic and Premium Packages are listed here.
Also, thanks for your congrats about living with MM since ’94. It took me awhile but I like my life now (I know that sounds odd)Reply
Thanks for the info. Doesn’t sound odd to me at all that you like your life now. We accomodate and then we radiate!Reply
I need a list of good and bad supplements. My hospital pharmacist said Melatonin is bad for MM. There are a few places online which warn about it as well. I also have an overactive bladder due to Cytoxan. Which supplements, amino acids or vitamins are safe?Reply
A google search for information about melatonin and MM results in a mixed bag of studies and personal comments. I have linked a Pubmed study below that says that melatonin is cytotoxic to breast cancer but may or may not be good for MM.
I take low doses of melatonin (1 or 2 mg.) every few days for a good night’s sleep. Though I am a MM survivor I am also in complete remission. I also take low dose vitamin C which is also supposed to be “bad” for MMers.
I too have an overactive bladder from cytoxan therapy in ’95. I take a supplement that is a mix of cruciferous veggies. I still wake up to pee once or twice each night…
If you have multiple myeloma please consider becoming a member of PeopleBeatingCancerCoaching.org. If you are interested in managing your MM long term I work with MMers by sharing those evidence-based therapies that I use based on years of research.
Anti- cancer supplementation and also those specific supplements that I take with brands and daily doses
Those supplements that are “integrative” with FDA approved chemotherapy. This list overlaps with the above but this form of therapy is key for cancer patients and suvivors.
Anti-cancer anti-angiogenic nutrition- I don’t believe in diets. I am talking about those foods that we can incorporate into our diets that are anti-angiogenic aka cancer killing-
Bone health supplementation– bone health is important for all cancer patients. Bisphosphonate therapy is fine but there are other therapies for you to consider
Lifestyle therapies that are evidence based to kill cancer-
Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks
I looked at your website and tried to sign up for your free consultation, but the link provided did not work. I was recently diagnosed with MM in Otober – a present for my 58th birthday. AS you well know, this whole thing blind-sided me. I’m am very interested in finding out more. Please contact me at 484-95-2105 or via email at email@example.com. I live in Pennsylvania, so I’m on East coast time.
Looking forward to hearing from you soon!
I replied to your email through my gmail.
