Follicular lymphoma info linking lifestyle to gene expression. Vitamin D, exercise, sleep, stress, nutrition, diet. Latest Treatments. Est. global comm. 17 yrs.
Follicular lymphoma is the most common of the slow-growing non-Hodgkin lymphomas. In some ways it resembles a pre-cancer. It usually presents with one or more painless lymph nodes. It does not always need to be treated. It usually responds favorably to BOTH conventional treatments and to scientifically-based lifestyle strategies. By initiating natural regression, it is possible to achieve long-term healthy survival. That is our goal.
This site provides up-to-date information on treatments for follicular lymphoma coupled with a scientifically-based plan of natural strategies.
The National Cancer Institute now states that cancer is a genetic disease . The National Institute of Health links lifestyle practices to gene expression … with more data in this update link from the NIH.
When you connect with data coming from these two top-level sites you know you are in good company. That is the approach we take here.
We have combined this updated understanding of cancer from the NCI and NIH into a set of practical strategies referred to as the Four Pillar Gene Remediation Strategies (4P-GRS) program. This program serves as a guide for our proactive members in support of their long-term healthy survival in overcoming follicular lymphoma.
The site is Free of Advertising, supported 100% by its members for over 17 years.
Who We Are
We are the most prominent survivor-managed website in the world devoted to follicular lymphoma.
Content has been developed by a “retired” college dean, a fellow follicular lymphoma survivor diagnosed 29 years ago, currently well and fully active.
We do not provide medical advice. Instead, we help with guidance based on data prepared by experts to assist members when consulting with their doctors.
Personal Comment: I’m very fortunate. My lymphoma is no longer evident. The knowledge gained from my own experience during this “journey” of nearly 30 years, combined with the latest developments in follicular lymphoma are what I wish to share with fellow survivors and caregivers. I’m confident this program will help guide you toward your own personal success.

Who This Site is For
This site is for survivors and caregivers who:
√ want to learn about the often confusing, controversial nature of follicular lymphoma. This knowledge will impart a positive personal outlook to reduce stress and uncertainty. It will also enable the survivor to communicate far more productively with his or her doctors.
√ are aware that some survivors do very well for long periods of time.
√ believe that the best chance for success comes from knowing about treatment options (when and with what) combined with adoption of the latest scientific advancements linking natural strategies to gene remediation.
√ have a lot of dreams yet to be fulfilled.

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 the ultimate objective — 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.
Details on What We Offer
√ Access to our copyright, time-tested Four Pillar Gene Remediation Strategies (4P-GRS) Program with information on diet, nutrition, physical activity, 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 knowledge available to survivors here is unique. Personal support is offered with the highest integrity. Being fully knowledgeable regarding the confusing nature of follicular lymphoma provides a huge advantage.

Recent Commentary from our Members
You have the most informative information for my cancer. Love your stuff and appreciate the research…Dan, Missouri
Thank you so much for all of the wisdom you share on LymphomaSurvival. I am almost nine years out from my diagnosis date and blessed to say I am very healthy. Your site has not only provided current information and strategies, but much needed emotional support as well. Just this past month, I shared your site with a newly diagnosed guy. He was still in the confused, fearful state right after diagnosis and your site was just what he needed…Rebecca, Louisiana
I’m still staying on your guide for avoiding treatment – could not be more grateful for all you do to keep so many of us alive to enjoy life…Carolyn, Ohio.
At the present time not only has there been no progression but actually regression. I want you to know how much I appreciate your information. I am a physician and reading your site has given me the most information that I have found anywhere…Frank
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.
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.
