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.

The challenge for Myeloma patients regarding cannabis or more specifically C-B-D oil is that medical marijuana is not well researched in the U.S.

Hi David,-I’ve been watching your you tube on myeloma- C-B-D. I have been diagnosed with multiple myeloma and looking for alternate treatment. Currently looking at going to Mexico where they are treating it with some success. After watching the video on cannabis oil, it looked like something I would do.
Any information you can provide will be greatly appreciated.
Best regards, William

Hi William,
I am sorry to read of your MM diagnosis. My experience is that a newly diagnosed MMer’s treatment plan depends on his/her stage at diagnosis. In other words, the success and efficacy of evidence-based non-toxic therapies like cannabis, anti-MM nutrition and supplementation, etc. will depend on how much MM you have in your bones.
For example, there are many MMers who use the anti-oxidant, anti-angiogenic, anti-MM nutritional supplement called curcumin with success- see the links below. 
The challenge for MMers regarding cannabis or more specifically  myeloma C-B-D oil is that medical marijuana is not well researched in the U.S. I will link the MM cancer coaching guide below for cannabis. But as you will see there are only one or two studies pertaining to C-B-D effect on MM. There is more research on issues like pain/nausea management as well as how C-B-D synergizes with specific chemotherapy regimens (bortezomib) than there is documenting the specific anti-MM efficacy of C-B-D itself.
Lastly, there are practical issues such as state laws, strain of CBD oil (each strain varies in the percentage of cannabinoids), dosing, etc. that each newly diagnosed MMer must grapple with.
I don’t mean to complicate this issue. I’m trying to be direct.
I encourage you to pursue a spectrum of non-toxic MM therapies not only because it is what I do but also because MM is considered to be incurable by conventional oncology.

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


Do you know your stage at diagnosis? Did you have blood work/testing done?

The Most BioAvailable Curcumin Formulas

“Based on a review of these studies, it is evident that better bioavailability of formulated curcumin (CU) products is mostly attributed to improved solubility, stability, and possibly low first-pass metabolism”

A search of the Pubmed database for the word curcumin yields 601 studies spaning health topics from multiple myeloma and colorectal cancer, to chemotherapies that synergizes with CU, to Alzheimer’s Disease, arthritis and more. Based on years of reading studies and personal accounts, I think it is safe to say that CU supplementation is safe and relatively inexpensive.

I have read about myeloma patients taking daily doses of CU from 400 milligrams to 8 grams (1000 milligrams = 1 gram). By almost any measure, CU is a safe, inexpensive wonder drug.

The only challenge is that CU is famously difficult to absorb in the body. In other words, a person has to mix curcumin with some sort of fat (coconut oil, chocolate, etc.) or take a brand of curcumin capsule that is already formulated to be more “bioavailable” in order to derive the full benefit of CU.

The study linked and exerpted below reviews different formulations of CU. The study itself lists the three most bioavailable formulation/brand of CU and I’ve added an excerpt from a further review from Consumerlab.com that lists four additional bioavailable brands of CU.

Bioavailable curcumin formulations: A review of pharmacokinetic studies in healthy volunteers.

“Curcumin is a widely studied natural compound which has shown tremendous in vitro therapeutic potential. Despite that, the clinical efficacy of the native CU is weak due to its low bioavailability and high metabolism in the gastrointestinal tract. During the last decade, researchers have come up with different formulations with a focus on improving the bioavailability of curcumin. As a result, a significant number of bioavailable curcumin-based formulations were introduced with the varying range of enhanced bioavailability.

The purpose of this review is to collate the published clinical studies of CU products with improved bioavailability over conventional (unformulated) CU. Based on the literature search, 11 curcumin formulations with available human bioavailability and pharmacokinetics data were included in this review. Further, the data on clinical study design, analytical method, pharmacokinetic parameters and other relevant details of each formulation were extracted.

Based on a review of these studies, it is evident that better bioavailability of formulated curcumin products is mostly attributed to improved solubility, stability, and possibly low first-pass metabolism. The review hopes to provide a quick reference guide for anyone looking information on these bioavailable curcumin formulations.

Based on the published reports,

exhibited over 100-fold higher bioavailability relative to reference unformulated CU. Suggested mechanisms accounting for improved bioavailability of the formulations and details on the bioanalysis methods are also discussed.”

According to Consumerlab.com:

“Novasol has the highest bioavailability (185 x compared to unforumulated CU), followed by Curcuwin (136 x), Longvida (100 x), Meriva (48 x), BCM-95 (27 x), Curcumin C3 Complex + Bioperene (20 x), and then Theracumin (16 x).”
