Several years of conventional therapies and “we can do nothing more for you” led me to an experimental therapy that put me into complete remission in early ’99 from multiple myeloma where I have remained ever since.

This is one of those blog posts that lead to more questions than answers. Questions that you may not have known to ask. The squigly illustration below  is a my attempt to help you visualize the bullet points/questions  below. Click the illustration to enlarge it. But the key is to learn as much as you can about your diagnosis.

I am a long-term MM survivor and MM cancer coach. I was diagnosed with multiple myeloma in early ’94. Several years of conventional therapies and “we can do nothing more for you” led me to an experimental therapy that put me into complete remission in early ’99. I live an evidence-based, anti-MM lifestyle through nutrition, supplementation, bone health, mind-body therapies and more. All based on research. None of these therapies are discussed in any of the studies below.
