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.

Hi David- I suffer from Post Thrombosis Syndrome (MM side effect). I wear compression stockings everyday and I am trialling different medications.
None of which I want to be on long term but I’m sore 24/7 and am not sleeping which is leading to other physical and mental issues.
I’m usually an active person but since this condition started I’ve gained weight and depression. I’m really looking for anything natural that may help? Any advice would be amazing. Hallie
I am sorry to read of your post-thrombosis syndrome. Let me clarify a few issues that I think you are asking about. This way, I can make sure I am answering the right questions.
1) “I suffer from PTS wearing compression stocking everyday and am trialling different medications.”
My original blood clot (multiple myeloma side effect) hurt (24/7) but my PTS resulting from my blood clot does not hurt. My calf can swell if I stand too long but I don’t wear compression stockings. I am mentioning these two issues to make sure that I am reading your question correctly.
Even though you consider your DVT to have been treated/resolved, do you still have swelling? And your leg hurts when it swells?
If I am correct then please talk to your doctor about your PTS. Perhaps he/she can resolve the DVT further with conventional meds.
Having said that, I take non-toxic therapies shown to either thin my blood and resolve the DVT. I will link the studies below.
2) “None of which I want to be on long term but I’m sore 24/7 and am not sleeping which is leading to other physical and mental issues.”
I have read anecdotal evidence from MM survivors that meds like neurontin don’t help much when it comes to MM pain. If your DVT/PTS is causing chronic pain, I would focus on resolving the remaining blood clot. At least, this is what I have focused on.
3) “I’m usually an active person but since this condition started I’ve gained weight and depression. I’m really looking for anything natural that may help?”
Remember that I can’t prescribe medication. I can tell you what I do but you have to decide on your own what you do. I supplement with
“A natural human enzyme made by genetically altered bacteria effectively dissolves clots in the arteries of heart attack victims and could give doctors a safe new way to stop these seizures as they happen, researchers say.
If the enzyme is given soon enough after a heart attack, they report, it could prevent potentially lethal damage to a victim’s heart.
A report on therapy with the enzyme, called tissue plasminogen activator, or T.P.A., was presented Monday at the annual scientific meeting of the American Heart Association.
Dr. Elliott B. Grossbard of Genentech, the South San Francisco, Calif., company that developed and produced the enzyme, said it had been tested on more than 200 patients at 25 hospitals in the United States and Europe…
“Atherothrombotic cardiovascular disease is a major cause of mortality throughout the world. Platelet activation and aggregation play a central role in hemostasis and thrombosis. Herbal medicines have been traditionally used in the management of cardiovascular disease and can help in modifying its progression, particularly in hemostasis and the coagulation process, as well as altering platelet function tests and some coagulation parameters. Curcumin is a polyphenol derived from the Curcuma longa plant and has been used extensively in complementary and alternative medicine, as it is nontoxic and safe with various therapeutic properties. Modern scientific research has demonstrated its anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, anti-carcinogenic, antithrombotic, and cardiovascular protective effects…”
“Nattokinase (NK), a potent blood-clot dissolving protein used for the treatment of cardiovascular diseases, is produced by the bacterium Bacillus subtilis during the fermentation of soybeans to produce Natto. NK has been extensively studied in Japan, Korea, and China. Recently, the fibrinolytic (anti-clotting) capacity of NK has been recognized by Western medicine. The National Science Foundation in the United States has investigated and evaluated the safety of NK. NK is currently undergoing a clinical trial study (Phase II) in the USA for atherothrombotic prevention…
Various animal and human trials have demonstrated that NK improves blood circulation and helps decrease the risk of a variety of cardiovascular diseases without producing any adverse side effects…

“Because we all have blood pumping through our veins, we’re all at some risk for deep vein thrombosis (DVT), a condition in which a blood clot forms in a vein deep inside the body, typically in the lower leg or thigh.
The bad news: DVT can lead to serious illness, disability, or, in severe cases, death, if part of the clot breaks off, travels to your lungs, and blocks blood flow, causing a pulmonary embolism.
The good news: DVT is both preventable and treatable. One simple step you can take right now to lower your risk is changing your diet. “Some foods do increase the risk for blood clots,” says Steven Masley, MD, author of The 30-Day Heart Tune-Up. On the flip side, he says, adding certain foods to your diet can help prevent DVT and decrease your risk for blood clots…”
