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.

Living with, Combating, Surviving Multiple Myeloma is a full-time job according to Tom Brokaw

I am a long-term MM survivor and MM cancer coach who has lived in complete remission from MM since 4/99. I feel a kinship to all those who live with and perhaps die from multiple myeloma. Especially famous MM survivors. I apologize if this blog post is a bit morbid but I know many people surviving Multiple Myeloma who wonder about others who have had MM.

Four of my favorite MM survivors are:

  • James Bond
  • Colon Powel
  • Sam Walton
  • Tom Brokaw

It is interesting to read what a famous MM survivor like Tom Brokaw writes about when talking about living with MM.   Tom is not an oncologist. He is one of us. And he is quite articulate when he talks about MM.

The long and growing list of FDA approved chemotherapy regimens are important but understand that:

  1. Oncology routinely tells newly diagnosed MMers that an autologous stem cell transplant (ASCT) will extend their lives by 10 years or more. Long remissions happen. But the average survival of a newly diagnosed MMer is 4-6 years according to the American Cancer Society.
  2. Living with MM is expensive. Even with health insurance.
  3. Side effects ranging from nerve damage, blood clots, chemobrain, and more can dominate your life forever.
  4. Living with multiple myeloma is a full-time job.

Consider evidence-based, non-toxic, anti-MM nutrition, supplementation, bone health, lifestyle, and mind-body therapies.

Please watch the video below to learn more about the evidence-based, integrative therapies to combat treatment side effects and enhance your chemotherapy.

“…There is much more to their story than time allows at these gatherings. During Jim’s stay-at-home time due to Covid 19, he wrote a book, which his wife and daughter-in-law, Stacey reviewed. Stacey suggested the title, and The Man in the Arena: Surviving Multiple Myeloma Since 1992 was published in 2021.  Jim will donate profit from the book to the IMF, American Cancer Society, University Hospitals of Cleveland ,the Bone Marrow Registry, Dana Farber Cancer Center, Mayo Clinic, and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society–each of which are critical to their ongoing story…”

“Three years ago, at age 73, I learned that I had an incurable cancer called multiple myeloma. At the time the statistical life span for patients with the disease was five yearsThat number has not changed
The cancer is in remission, and I take the word of my medical team that I am doing well and should beat the standard life expectancy…
Even in remission, cancer alters a patient’s perception of what’s normal. Morning, noon and night, asleep and awake, malignant cells are determined to alter or end your life. Combating cancer is a full-time job that, in my case, requires 24 pills a day, including one that runs $500 a dose…
Constant fatigue is a common signature of cancer patients, which separates them from healthy friends and family members…
