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.
It is an Advertising-Free site supported 100% by its members for over 17 years.
The goal of this site is to equip our members with knowledge required to understand the confusing nature of follicular lymphoma, the optimal treatments that are available, and the latest science in epigenetics* linking lifestyle to gene remediation — all leading to healthy, active survival time, well beyond the norm.
* No, you don’t have to be a biologist here – it’s just nice to know what really works and what makes all the difference!
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 over 28 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.
Please see What the Members Say page.
Who This Site is For
Our members continually tell us they appreciate the up-to-date information and guidance in our monthly newsletters and articles. But what they like the most is that this program works! You are sure to benefit if:
* you realize that extended, healthy survival with follicular lymphoma requires more than treatments alone (despite potential benefits from the right treatment at the right time if/when needed).
* you are interested in adopting a scientifically-based, time-tested plan of action with natural strategies designed specially to promote 20++ years of healthy survival and results beyond the norm.
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 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. 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.

Recent Commentary from our Members
Still on long-term survival (11 years since diagnosis and counting), thanks to your continuing support with your website. Diane, Ontario
My friends know who I’m talking about when I quote “my friend Robert!” I would be lost if I didn’t have all of your information to guide me. My nodes have shrunk in the 3 years since I was diagnosed due to following much of your program. I cannot thank you enough…Mary
Many thanks again for this very empowering site. I am seeing success with steady natural regression. The fear has been replaced by truly joyful times and the 4 pillars are a way of life now…Bob, Connecticut
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, 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.
