Prostate Cancer Cured, But Mm Progressing
Hi Ted, I have always read with great attention and interest, your posts on earthclinic.com. I am writing to you in hopes you will have some suggestions/advice on what I can do for my father.
My father was diagnosed with multiple myeloma (MM) five years ago. He was actually diagnosed with prostate cancer when his PSA number rose and during tests for that diagnosis, they discovered MM. He chose hormone therapy for his prostate cancer which seems to have resolved it. He has been on chemo (Revlimid and Dexamethasone) but over time his kappa light chain number (KLC, used to track the progression of MM) continued to rise so his oncologist put him on Velcade (with Dexamethasone) and it successfully reduced his KLC number for several months. So they stopped Velcade but continued Dexamethasone. After about 3 months, his KLC number was rising so he went back on Velcade (lower dose) a few months ago and this is his current status.
My older sister has researched many natural supplements so he currently takes curcumin, mushrooms, Floressence tea, among other things to help offset the harm that chemo inflicts on the body. My father has difficulty sleeping and he experiences weakness and dizziness when he gets up to stand. But once he's standing, he can walk fine (sometimes uses a cane) and he is able to drive. What do you suggest, Ted?
