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.

Relapse After Only One Year Post ASCT for Myeloma- Help!

I’m sorry to read of your relapse so soon after your ASCT but keep in mind that I too relapsed at about one year. Remissions followed by relapses are what makes MM a roller coaster.

Hi David- I have just experienced my first relapse and am pretty shaken up. I have relapsed only one year from my ASCT.

My Doctor is starting me in a new study. I am researching metabolic approaches to beat cancer.

I have been taking curcumin.  I feel like I need to up my game with regard to diet and supplements. I have your guides. How do I know which other supplements to take? Jane


Hi Jane-

I’m sorry to read of your relapse so soon after your ASCT but keep in mind that I too relapsed at about one year. Remissions followed by relapses are what makes MM a roller coaster. Not a fun roller coaster either…

Several things. Regarding anti-MM supplementation, there is no real formula to know what supplements to take. For example, I explain which supplements I take, at what doses. But other MM CC clients take more, some less.

I think it is reasonable to increase your curcumin dose (depending on what your daily dose currently is). Studies show that green tea extract (EGCG) synergizes with curcumin. Omega 3 fatty acids as well. If you haven’t already, I would encourage you to watch Dr. Bill Li’s Ted Talk which is linked in the nutrition guide. Dr. Li’s talks about anti-angiogenic foods and supplements.

Revlimid and Thalidomide are angiogenic inhibitors. Curcumin and resveratrol are angiogenic inhibitors. I add foods from Dr. Li’s list to most of my daily meals.

To answer your question, “how do I know which other supplements to take,” it is up to you. There are 18 supplements listed in the anti-MM supplements guide. I take nine of the supplements listed and I listed my daily dose.

There is no formula that I know of. To a large degree which, what and how much is a personal preference. I will say that the closed Facebook group called Beating Myeloma could be a help to you in reading what other MMers do in this regard.

I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any other questions.

PS- I have to make a pitch for other complementary therapies such as frequent, moderate exercise, detox, mind-body therapies, etc. I do much of what I talk about in the guides…

Can We Eat To Starve Cancer?

“William Li presents a new way to think about treating cancer and other diseases: anti-angiogenesis, preventing the growth of blood vessels that feed a tumor. The crucial first (and best) step: Eating cancer-fighting foods that cut off the supply lines and beat cancer at its own game. NOTE: This talk was given in 2010, and this field of science has developed quickly since then. Enjoy it as a piece of science history but not as the last word on this topic…”
