I am sorry to learn of Allan’s relapsed/refractory situation. Dana-Farber will manage his ASCT well. I will reply to your question about my top 5 MM therapies if I ever relapse.
Keep in mind that I am “off the reservation”
when I talk, think like this. By this I mean that I consider myself to also be “relapsed/refractory”
to all conventional, FDA approved MM therapies. I understand that I would be taking risks by taking the five multiple myeloma therapies below.
But then again, I would be taking risks if I underwent conventional MM therapies and I would be taking risks if I did nothing.
The five alternative therapies that I discuss are not thoroughly tested, evaluated, etc. Yes, I would take then all at the same time. I think taking an integrative approach to MM is key. For me at least…
I would need a crash course on this therapy but my recollection is that there is a fair amount of research about artemisinin as a cancer therapy, it is inexpensive and applied orally. I need cheap and easy as ANP and Int. I.V. C is relatively expensive.
again because I responded to it so well the firs time. ANP stands for antineoplaston therapy. This is the therapy that was discovered by Dr. Stanislaw Burzynski. I know the clinic, I know how I react to ANP. So I will try it again.
Intravenous Vitamin C–
I have never undergone intravenous vitamin C therapy. However, the research that I’ve read on the issue of I.V.C and MM is patient-based. Further, the clinic that I used for hyperbaric oxygen therapy also administers I.V.C.
Curcumin up to 8 grams-
I currently take a maintenance dose of curcumin of 400 mg. As we know, many take 2,4,8 grams. 1000 mg. = 1 gram. I’m simply ramping up a therapy that I’ve taken for years.
The other evidence-based, anti-mm supplements listed in the MM CC supplementation guide. If you’ve read the MM CC supplement, you’ll see that I list what supplements I take and what supplements I don’t take. I think there are a total of 18 evidence-based, anti-MM supplements and I take only half of these regularly. I think it would be relatively inexpensive, easy and integrative to take regular doses of the others. Not mega doses, just what’s on the label.
I have to add that I would double-down on those complimentary therapies that research has been shown to kill MM. Those would be whole-body hyperthermia (sauna), exercise (frequent, moderate), no wine for the foreseeable future:-(, and lots of antiangiogenic fruits and veggies.
Other than antineoplaston therapy, the therapies that I list above are inexpensive, non-toxic and pretty easy to build into a person’s routine. My routine anyway. I need this.
Let me know if you have any questions.
