Download the FREE ebook "Beating Myeloma: If I Knew Then What I Know Now" and arm yourself with the information about autologous stem cell transplantation, treatment options, and side effects that I wish I had known about when I began treatment.
Hi David- How can I maintain my multiple myeloma with evidence-based non-conventional therapies. My MM is at reasonably early stages. PARA PROTEIN 29-31. No CRAB symptoms. Diagnosed 7 months ago, my oncologist wanted to give me conventional treatment. But I want to maintain my MM through evidence-based but non-toxic therapies.
So please help guide and advise. I will be most indebted to you. Thanks. Mark
Stage 1- Pre Habilitation: By undergoing anti-MM/anti-angiogenic nutrition, supplementation, and complementary therapies you will slow and perhaps reduce your MM to a managable level without the use of conventional therapies. Further, by pre-habilitating, you will be weakening your MM such that if you do choose to undergo conventional therapies sometime in the future, you will 1) respond better to the therapy and 2) experience fewer if any adverse events aka side effects and 3) be able to reduce the amount of conventional therapy if you choose, to reduce the toxicity you undergo.
