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.

The average survival rates for a multiple myeloma diagnosis is 49%. This means that if you work with a conventional general oncologist (not a MM specialist) and do nothing but follow conventional FDA approved myeloma therapies your chances MM survival of five years is about 50/50.
Please keep in mind that a host of variables can change a person’s average survival including age, physical condition or co-morbidites, stage at diagnosis, and evidence-based, non-conventional MM therapies.
I believe that “survival averages” are misleading at best. I believe that newly diagnosed myeloma patients can learn more about their prognosis from what the American Cancer Society says about the average survival based on stage at diagnosis:
|Revised International Staging System||Median Survival|
|Stage I||Has not been reached|
|Stage II||83 months|
|Stage III||43 months|
I have lived with multiple myeloma since my diagnosis in 1994. I have been in complete remission since 4/99.
My experience as both a MM survivor and MM coach is that-
While there is a long and growing list of FDA approved chemotherapy regimens for Multiple Myeloma and while autologous stem cell transplantation (ASCT) has seen some patients achieve long remissions, my experience is that high-dose toxic therapy can cause serious short, long-term and late stage collateral damage. I have learned that myeloma patients can undergo conventional FDA approved MM therapies and also maximize evidence-based, non-toxic myeloma therapies to maximize both quality of life and quantity of life.
If you or a loved one have been diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma, let me say this loud and clear:
It is critical that you become an active participant in your care. Learn everything you can.
I am alive today largely because I took the time to find out everything I could about Multiple Myeloma and sought out the full spectrum of evidence-based MM therapies both conventional (FDA approved) and non-conventional.
Your decision-making begins by learning about the full spectrum of evidence-based myeloma therapies, both conventional and non-conventional. Here are some questions you may have right now:
