Follicular lymphoma info linking epigenetics to lifestyle. Vitamin D, exercise, sleep, stress, nutrition, diet. Latest Treatments. Est. global comm. 17 yrs.
By survivors for survivors, applying new discoveries to produce optimal results.
This site provides up-to-date information on treatments for follicular lymphoma coupled with a scientifically-based plan of natural strategies developed over many years.
It is an Advertising-Free site supported 100% by its members for over 17 years.
Who We Are
We are the most prominent survivor-managed website in the world devoted exclusively to follicular lymphoma.
Content has been developed by a “retired” college dean, a fellow follicular lymphoma survivor diagnosed over 28 years ago, currently well and fully active.
We do not provide medical advice. Instead, we help with forward guidance to assist members when consulting with their doctors.
Personal Comment: Approaching three decades since diagnosis, I’m very fortunate. My lymphoma is no longer evident. The experiences I’ve had during this “journey” of nearly 30 years are what I wish to share — a survivor’s perspective on what works to help overcome follicular lymphoma — and what doesn’t. My success has been due primarily to two things: taking the right treatments at the right time and using key natural strategies I’ve discovered over the years to hold follicular lymphoma in check. This is the foundation of our Four Pillar approach. It has been used successfully by hundreds of our members. Please see What the Members Say page. We know this program can help guide you toward your own personal success –Robert
Who This Site is For
This site is for proactive, committed people who:
* believe right from the beginning that they can be and will be a successful survivor
* sense that extended, healthy survival with follicular lymphoma will require more than treatments alone (despite potential benefits from the right treatment at the right time if/when needed)
* realize they have a lot to learn, are prepared to do so, but that information alone won’t be enough
* know that adoption of a scientifically-based, time-tested plan of action targeted to follicular lymphoma will be beneficial in achieving their goal of healthy, long-term survival.
There is no need for survivors (or caregivers) to feel powerless or alone.
We respect how people feel, and as lymphoma patients ourselves, we understand.
HOW OUR PROGRAM WORKS
It has now been shown scientifically that the lifestyle choices we adopt alter the activity (expression) level of our genes 24/7, including those that regulate lymphoma.
It’s all about the achievement of natural regression with follicular lymphoma — which some people refer to as spontaneous remission. That is our GOAL — regression of follicular lymphoma by scientific means. Not just in one node but in ALL of them, leading to the ultimate resolution of the disorder. It is now apparent that this can be achieved.
Regression can only take place when activity in key genes is changed. We refer to this as gene remediation. In cases where the survivor is suitable for “watchful waiting” or “active surveillance” it is possible to start right away.
The strategies for natural regression we suggest – including things to avoid — are summarized in Article #3. The details are critically important.
Once the positive activity in the genes begins to impact the tumor microenvironment, the malignant cells in the lymph nodes become (more) normalized. Immortality of the cancer cells is then lost. The malignant cells begin to die on their own without negative side-effects.
Beyond a doubt, in our experience over many years, follicular lymphoma survivors who experience natural regression achieve longer overall survival.
As a proactive person, we invite you to join our group, giving yourself or your loved one the best possible chance to overcome follicular lymphoma.
Details on What We Offer
√ Access to our copyright, time-tested Four Pillar Gene Remediation Strategies (4P-GRS) Program with information on diet, nutrition, exercise, sleep, stress management and vitamin D optimization. This program, unlike any other, has been created specifically for follicular lymphoma and other indolent lymphomas.
√ 12 articles to help understand the confusing nature of follicular lymphoma, written in plain English.
√ Monthly newsletters going back to 2004 summarizing the latest research, treatments, developments and perspectives on follicular lymphoma.
√ A virtual library with over 3000 reference pages (See our Topic Index).
√ A discussion board for members covering lifestyle and treatment matters, moderated to ensure productive, supportive dialogue.
√ Prompt email support.
√ Phone consultation.
The Pivotal Point
Understandably, in the beginning, self-directed gene remediation is a difficult concept to accept.
But when experienced in real life by real lymphoma survivors – when favorable results occur, almost as a miracle – it soon becomes evident how potent this new science in epigenetics is.
It is a fortuitous time for us. As survivors, we may have to “connect a few dots”, and make some educated guesses from time to time, but at least now each of us can become a proactive participant in our own self-styled program.

My husband is a family physician, I’m an RN and we love your site. Thanks for all the work you’ve done…Lisa
Thanks, Robert for everything. (My husband) will be 9 years without treatment in Feb 2017, so far, so good. Much thanks to your site which guided us in our first days, and still today…Ann, Georgia
Thanks Robert…for your continuing outstanding work in providing us much-needed information in an understandable form. I am indeed doing well, with much credit I believe to practicing the ‘pillars’ – so well in fact that my oncologist has put me on an annual check-in basis rather than the 6 month turnaround…Jack, Alberta
Many thanks for your words of encouragement – you’ve shone a ray of light into a dark corner of our lives…Martin, Scotland
Additional commentary each month over the years can be seen on our What the Members Say page.
Additional Details About Our Site
We have several members with types of lymphoma other than follicular, including CLL, marginal zone, mantle cell, T-cell and aggressive (diffuse) lymphomas. Most of the material on this site will be helpful for survivors in these groups.
There are several doctors in our membership, both as patients and caregivers. People come from all walks of life, with a variety of backgrounds.
Members may wish to gain encouragement and information from those with personal experience on our discussion board.
For information on our phone consultation service click on the Phone Consultation page.
Thank you for visiting Lymphoma Survival. We hope you found it informative and inspirational. We sincerely believe that the content and guidance here will help you or your loved one control follicular lymphoma as a manageable disorder.
You are invited to join our group as outlined on the Registration page.
Best in Health from the Lymphoma Survival team.
