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.

Results show enough promise, however, that Haykal would like to see more (multiple myeloma) doctors, especially oncology, prescribe vitamin D to patients in general.
The article linked and excerpted below points to the basic flaw with the practice of evidence-based medicine’s approach to multiple myeloma treatment. At least when it comes to conventional oncology. Multiple Myeloma (MM) patients would benefit from supplementing with vitamin D3. Numerous studies show this. Chances are, your oncologist, perhaps even an oncologist who specializes in multiple myeloma, probably won’t tell you to supplement with vitamin D3.
Vitamin D is inexpensive and presents few if any side effects. Why not tell MM patients and survivors to supplement with it? Why not include vitamin D3 with standard-of-care multiple myeloma treatment? Because vitamin D is not approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
I am not saying that the FDA is against vitamin D3 supplementation. I’m saying that conventional oncology, by law, must prescribe only FDA approved therapies. And the FDA has not approved vitamin D3 supplementation.
For the record let me state that I think the FDA (and oncology) has a big job. And they approach researching and approving a given multiple myeloma treatment in a very specific and expensive way. No one is going to pay for clinical trials for a three year period to determine the efficacy of vitamin D3 supplementation- especially if that multiple myeloma treatment can’t be patented.
You are a newly diagnosed MM patient. What do you do? To complicate matters, there are a host of other evidence-based but non-conventional (not FDA approved) therapies shown to be cytotoxic (kill) MM, or build bone strength, or improve immune function…etc.
I am a long-term MM survivor. I have researched and written about these therapies since 2004. I eat, sleep, breath and supplement multiple myeloma therapy. MM is a complicated, incurable blood cancer. I think you need to use every evidence-based therapy, conventional or non-conventionl, out there.

“Michigan State University physicians have found that vitamin D, if taken for at least three years, could help cancer patients live longer.
The findings suggest that the vitamin carries significant benefits other than just contributing to healthy bones and were presented at the American Society of Clinical Oncology annual meeting on June 3, 2019…
“Vitamin D had a significant effect on lowering the risk of death among those with cancer, but unfortunately it didn’t show any proof that it could protect against getting cancer…”
“The difference in the mortality rate between the vitamin D and placebo groups was statistically significant enough that it showed just how important it might be among the cancer population…”
Results show enough promise, however, that Haykal would like to see more doctors, especially oncologists, prescribe vitamin D to patients in general.
“We know it carries benefits with minimal side effects, he said. “There’s plenty of potential here.””
