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.

“Combination of chemotherapy and omega-3 fatty acids supplementation appears an effective strategy to enhance the clinical outcome of cancer (multiple myeloma) patients in their curative and palliative clinical trajectory.”
In addition, I live with an increased secondary cancer risk. Multiple Myeloma chemotherapy- induction therapy, an autologous stem cell transplant followed by maintenance therapy- greatly increases your risk of short, long-term and late stage side effects.
Research and experience has taught me that omega-3 fatty acids combined with multiple myeloma chemotherapy provides an integrative combination this is an essential non-conventional therapy for me. But in order to blog about this supplement I needed to provide evidence-based information to you, the reader.
The five studies linked and excerpted below state that omega 3 fatty acids provide an inexpensive, over-the-counter non-conventional therapy to heal your brain, heart, moods and more. As well as integrate with multiple myeloma chemotherapy.
I supplement daily with Life Extension Foundation Super Omega-3 Fatty Acids with EPA/DHA Sesame Lignans and Olive Extract.
I don’t take any conventional heart medications, I simply take evidence-based, non-conventional therapies for my chemotherapy-induced cardiomyopathy, atrial fibrillation, etc. And all indications tell me that my heart health is stable or improving.
I am both a multiple myeloma survivor and MM cancer coach. Have you been diagnosed with MM? If so, what symptoms are you experiencing? What stage were you diagnosed at?

“Common sources of plant oils containing the omega-3 ALA fatty acid include walnut, edible seeds, clary sage seed oil, algal oil, flaxseed oil, Sacha Inchi oil, Echium oil, and hemp oil, while sources of animal omega-3 EPA and DHA fatty acids include fish, fish oils, eggs from chickens fed EPA and DHA, squid oils, and krill oil…”
“Our study suggests that EPA and DHA induce selective cytotoxic effects in MM and increase sensitivity to bortezomib and calls for further exploration into a potential application of these n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids in the therapy of MM…”
“Although many other factors may also contribute to the rise in depression and for which effective (although not efficient) treatments already exist, dietary recommendations suggesting proper intake of omega-3 PUFA and dietary interventions including omega-3 PUFA supplement can result in substantial benefits for the general population…”
“Results: Absolute increases in the red blood cell omega-3/6 ratio were associated with improvements in spatial working memory. The group receiving 6 g fish oil without the multivitamin displayed a significant decrease in aortic pulse pressure and aortic augmentation pressure, two measures of aortic blood pressure and aortic stiffness. Conclusions: Fish oil decreased aortic pulse pressure and augmentation pressure.”
“In summary and in light of the current best evidence, we can conclude that omega-3 supplements might possibly confer cardiovascular benefits but their benefits will be minimal…”
Metabolic syndrome is a collection of conditions.
