Did You Know...

My cancer (multiple myeloma) is continuing to decrease, in the sense that the percentage of cancer cells to normal cells continue to decrease instead of the usual progression for this type of cancer--this without any normal medical treatment but using proper diet and excercise. As I have mentioned esewhere, an alkaline environment is hostile to cancer cells while an acidic environment is not.  My diet has shifted me to a alkaline level (pH level) of 7 sometimes. Ideally I should at least have an alkaline level of pH 7.2-7.4. Most of the time I have a pH level that is in the pH 6+ which is acidic. While this is fairly normal first thing in the morning this is not good during the day.

I have recently bought an ionizer and I am drinking water that is pH 7-9 depending of the level I choose. For clean AND healthy, energized water this link will give you what we just bought—in this case, not the most expensive and not the cheapest ionizer either (The Neptune).   Water Ionizers,

I recently got an email from a woman in Japan (American, I assume) who, like me, is resisting the nromal medical treatments. I have suggested that she consider shifting to alkaline water as part of the healing process.

I belong to a Multiple Myeloma support group on the Internet and I am troubled by the messages people put ont the site. The possible physical side effects of the treatments they are receiving.that people are bring up on the site:

For Thalidomite:Version, possible servious side effects: chest pain, sudden shortness of breath, coughing up blood; pain or swelling in your arm, thigh, or calf; easy bruising, unusual bleeding or weakness; slow heartbeats, shallow breathing; feeling light-headed, fainting; fever, chills, body aches, flu symptoms; a red, blistering, peeling skin rash; red, raised skin rash (especially if you also have fever, fast heart rate, and dizziness or fainting); numbness, burning, pain, or tingly feeling.

For Revlimid, some possible side effects: Swelling in the arms and legs; pain in the back, arms and legs, and muscles and breathing problems

For Velcade, less serious side effects may include: nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, constipation; headache, weakness; blurred vision; sleep problems (insomnia); cough or breathing problems; or skin irritation where the medicine was injected. MORE SERIOUS side effects may include: new or worsening nerve problems such as numbness, burning, pain, or tingly feeling; feeling light-headed, fainting; black, bloody, or tarry stools; vomit that looks like blood or coffee grounds; easy bruising or bleeding, unusual weakness; fever, chills, body aches, flu symptoms; feeling short of breath, even with mild exertion; urinating more or less than usual; or nausea, stomach pain, low fever, loss of appetite, dark urine, clay-colored stools, jaundice (yellowing of the skin or eyes).

What is Muliple myeloma?  It is a malignancy (cancer) of the white blood cell, called a plasma cell. M-spike or M-protein: Monoclonal proteins found in the blood of those with multiple myeloma can be used as a way of indicating how far the myeloma disease has progressed.  The current M-spike is compared to previous M-spikes to determine if a particular treatment is helping halt the process of the mutiple myeloma.

In my case, three years ago the M-spike was 3.8. As the multiple myeloma progresses the M-spike goes up—there is an increase in the monoclonal proteins present in the blood—but the lastest M-spike reading for me was 3.1 which shows a decrease in the plasma cells (as of April 2009).

What is a Beta2-microglobulin? It is a protein found on the surface of many cells. Testing is done primarily when evaluating a person for certain kinds of cancer affecting white blood cells. These cancers include lymphocytic leukemia, non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, and multiple myeloma.

Beta2-microglobulin is on the surface of white blood cells. Increased production or destruction of these cells causes Beta2-microglobulin levels in the blood to increase. The Beta2-microglobulin levels reflect how active the multiple myeloma is.

My story and the way I am dealing with my multiple myeloma on this site is for informational purposes only and it is not meant to substitute for the advice provided by your physician or other medical professional. Even though I have chosen this path to combat my cancer, I continue to see my oncologist and primary health physician on a quarterly basis and regularly have lab work to check on my progress--or lack of progress.
