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.

A few years after my diagnosis of multiple myeloma I began to notice articles and studies citing exposure to chemicals as a possible cause of multiple myeloma. More specifically many of these articles talked about printers or printing company employees as being at higher risk of a myeloma diagnosis. I worked in at a commercial lithography company for the five years preceding my cancer diagnosis. I wondered if detoxification may be an important MM therapy for me.
When I came across the articles linked below it confirmed my belief in chemical exposure as increasing the risk of a multiple myeloma diagnosis. Do I think that working in a printing plant caused my MM? No.
But chemical exposure certainly didn’. After many rounds of aggressive chemotherapy and radiation, it is safe to say that I suffer from heavy metals exposure. At this point is the need to detoxify my body.
The next step then was to figure out how to detoxify my body. The easiest, most relaxing and heart-healthy therapy to detoxify my body that I do is whole-body hypothermia. This is a fancy way of saying I take a sauna three times a week. My sauna is about 200 degrees Fahrenheit. I sit in this heat for between 15-25 minutes.
According to the studies linked below this therapy allows me to kill cancer stem cells, sweat out heavy metals, and generally feel relaxed.

Ed. Note- I wrote the above post in late 2010. I developed chemotherapy-induced heart damage at that time. Whole-body hyperthermia is great therapy for my heart and blood pressure as well. I have been in complete remission from MM since 1999.
“Literature on hyperthermic tumor therapy in the past 10 years has grown exponentially. Since 1975 three international symposia on cancer therapy by hyperthermia have been held. Hyperthermia is of clinical interest in the temperature range of 40 degrees-43 degrees C. Higher temperatures of 44 degrees-46 degrees C are not clinically realizable. With local heat application, a higher elevation of tissue temperature is possible.
Whole-body hyperthermia in men is limited physiologically, as the rate of complications increases exponentially above 42 degrees C. The heat dose normally is defined by temperature degree and time of temperature elevation…
Many investigations have been done on the interaction of heat and cytostatics; in vitro experiments evaluated three types. First, the activity of many drugs increases slightly with temperature; no special effects are observed above 42 degrees C. Examples of drugs of that pattern are the hypoxic sensitizer Ro-07-0582 and the alkylating agents thio-TEPA and CCNU. The second type of mechanism is seen with cytostatic drugs which exhibit greatly increased effectiveness at temperatures above 42 degrees C; adriamycin and bleomycin belong to this type.
“There is limited understanding of the toxicokinetics of bioaccumulated toxic elements and their methods of excretion from the human body. This study was designed to assess the concentration of various toxic elements in three body fluids: blood, urine and sweat.
Blood, urine, and sweat were collected from 20 individuals (10 healthy participants and 10 participants with various health problems) and analyzed for approximately 120 various compounds, including toxic elements. Toxic elements were found to differing degrees in each of blood, urine, and sweat. Serum levels for most metals and metalloids were comparable with those found in other studies in the scientific literature. Many toxic elements appeared to be preferentially excreted through sweat. Presumably stored in tissues, some toxic elements readily identified in the perspiration of some participants were not found in their serum. Induced sweating appears to be a potential method for elimination of many toxic elements from the human body. Biomonitoring for toxic elements through blood and/or urine testing may underestimate the total body burden of such toxicants. Sweat analysis should be considered as an additional method for monitoring bioaccumulation of toxic elements in humans.
