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.

Should Multiple Myeloma Survivors Eat Only Organic (O) Foods?

Share Button

One possible explanation for the negative association observed herein between organic food frequency and cancer (MM) risk is that the prohibition of synthetic pesticides in organic farming leads to a lower frequency or an absence of contamination in organic foods compared with conventional food

I am a long-term multiple myeloma (MM) survivor. I believe that MM survivors must live an anti-MM lifestyle before, during and after active therapies such as radiation and chemotherapy. I think it is a failing that conventional MM oncology stops “treating” the patient’s MM once conventional therapies end. I believe organic nutrition should be considered a form of MM therapy.

Which brings us to the issue discussed in this post. Not only anti-MM nutrition but organic nutrition. Because pesticides are a documented cause of MM risk, I think that multiple myeloma patients and survivors must consume organic nutrition whenever possible.

Further,

Having said the above I had to admit that O foods differ in their nutrition content compared to conventionally grown foods and yes, O foods are generally more expensive.

Though my own diet is not exclusively organic I can say that my wife and I make an effort to buy organic fruits and veggies. Further, I focus on those lifestyle practices that are evidence-based anti-cancer.

I am both a multiple myeloma survivor and MM cancer coach.   I think that my evidence-based, non-toxic, anti-MM lifestyle, including organic foods, are the reason why I have remained in complete remission from my “incurable cancer” since 1999.

For more information on non-conventional cancer therapies such as O foods, supplementation and detoxification scroll down the page, post a question or comment and I will reply to you ASAP.

Thank you,

Association of Frequency of Organic Food Consumption With Cancer Risk

“While O food (on confirmation of our findings) may be important to reduce the risk of specific cancers, the high price of such foods remains an important hurdle. Indeed, organic foods remain less affordable than corresponding conventional products, and high prices are a major obstacle for buying organic foods…

One possible explanation for the negative association observed herein between O food frequency and cancer risk is that the prohibition of synthetic pesticides in O farming leads to a lower frequency or an absence of contamination in organic foods compared with conventional foods46,47 and results in significant reductions in pesticide levels in urine.48

Would Americans Be Better Off Eating a Mostly Organic Diet?

“Sales of O food have been rising steadily over the past decade, reaching almost $30 billion in 2011, or 4.2% of all U.S. food and beverage sales, according to the O Trade Association…

Many of the consumers who purchase these products say paying more for O produce, milk and meat is a trade-off they are willing to make in order to avoid exposure to chemical pesticides and fertilizers and milk from cows given bovine growth hormone. But other families—especially those whose food budgets may be more limited—wonder if organic food is really worth its hefty price tag.

So far, researchers haven’t been able to provide them with a definitive answer.

Some experts say common sense should tell us that food grown without the help of synthetic chemicals is probably safer and healthier to consume than food containing those substances, even in trace amounts. They believe Americans should try to substitute organic products for conventional ones whenever possible…

Pesticides, in particular, are made to kill organisms, and the President’s Cancer Panel in 2010 made clear that it sees them as a threat, advising Americans to “reduce their cancer risks by choosing, to the extent possible, food grown without pesticides or chemical fertilizers…”

Hello David: I was recently diagnosed with Mgus. Can you suggest foods to avoid and foods to eat for this condition?

    Hi Patricia-
    I am sorry to read of your MGUS diagnosis. Rather than talk just about anti-MGUS nutrition experience and research has taught me that pre-MM patients can greatly reduce their risk of progressing to full-blown MM through a) nutrition, b) supplementation c) bone health and d) detoxification and exercise. Clicking the link below will take you to a blog post about MGUS- on the right of the page is a notice for free pre-MM webinar. The two mgus programs are both complete and inexpensive.

    I encourage you to purchase the pre-MM program, either basic or premium. I believe you will benefit from the many evidence-based, non-toxic, anti-MM therapies.

    Let me know if you have any questions.

    Thanks

Olive Oil as non-conventional cancer therapy- PeopleBeatingCancer says 5 years ago

[…] I don’t envision a cancer patient or survivor relying solely on olive oil supplementation to cure his/her cancer. However I do envision cancer patients altering their daily diets to include olive oil, dark chocolate,  and organic fruits and veggies. […]
