Follicular lymphoma info linking epigenetics to lifestyle. Vitamin D, exercise, sleep, stress, nutrition, diet. Latest Treatments. Est. global comm. 16 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 for proactive survivors to adopt as an essential guide leading to 20++ years of healthy, active survival.
This is an Advertising-Free site supported 100% by its members for over 16 years.
Who We Are
Content on this site has been developed by a “retired” college dean, a fellow follicular lymphoma survivor diagnosed over 28 years ago, currently well and fully active, his lymphoma now fully resolved.
Other members on our team provide research and administrative support. Guidance and personal support is available, but we do not offer medical advice.
There is no need to feel powerless or alone.
We respect how people feel, and as lymphoma patients ourselves, we understand.
[Personal Comment: Approaching three decades, I’m very fortunate. Lymphoma is gone. During these many years I’ve seen what works…and what doesn’t. If you have the desire, my team and I have a program that is flexible, enabling each person to do things in his or her preferred way. Pro-active survivors are often surprised at the results they achieve when the right things are chosen and implemented correctly. This so-called incurable disorder CAN be beaten…Robert].
What We Do
Our role is to track and evaluate the latest developments in conventional therapies (new drugs, monoclonal antibodies, radiation and immunotherapy) together with science-based natural approaches that may lead to gene remediation (see below) .
We then communicate trustworthy, unbiased, non-commercial information to our members in a way they can relate to, understand and implement.
This international resource community, created over 16 years ago, is supported 100% by its members. No one is denied. See What the Members Say page for comments from our members around the world.
Cancer research nowadays is focused on genetics.
At first that sounds grim, like there’s nothing that can be done. But really it’s the opposite of that.
New developments in genetics represent a huge breakthrough in science, and with it opportunities for us as cancer survivors never before possible.
The breakthrough in knowledge, simply stated, is that our genes are not “fixed” in the functions they perform, as was thought to be the case until very recently. As TIME magazine reports “Genes are NOT our Destiny”.
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. Benefits also apply to other types of lymphoma.
Regression can only take place when activity in key genes is changed. In cases where the survivor is suitable for “watchful waiting” or “active surveillance” it is possible to start right away. Conventional treatment is sometimes justified beforehand.
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. The 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. You can see many of their comments on our What the Members Say page.
FURTHERMORE, if one node shrinks, it has now become apparent that, over time, it IS POSSIBLE TO SHRINK ALL NODES.
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.

Recent Commentary from our Members
Thank you for your web site. I find it very helpful and thoroughly researched. I was diagnosed grade 3a in 2011 with widely disseminated disease with nodes in my neck, chest, abdomen and groin. I elected for no treatment and followed many of your recommendations. 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 (October 2016)
I am a 14 year survivor after being given a mere 7 years to live. I live my life in much the same way you do. I find a great deal of inspiration in your story. Your selfless dedication to the Lymphoma Survival newsletter speaks volumes to your character as a human…Ron, Texas (October 2016)
Thank you Robert! You have been so helpful. I have been on watch and wait since November 2004. No treatments!!!!!! I follow many of your 4 pillars. Thank you for all the research you do and share with all of us!!!!…Krystyna
My wife’s scan report states that 2 of her 3 affected lymph nodes had decreased by about 50% post treatment. But there was NO TREATMENT! She was following your Four Pillar strategies. The hematologist said she had never seen this in her 17 years of practice…Bill, Alberta

Additional Details About Our Site
This is the most prominent survivor-managed website in the world devoted exclusively to follicular lymphoma.
We do not provide medical advice. Instead, we help with forward guidance to assist members when consulting with their doctors.
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.

What We Want You to Know in Overcoming Follicular Lymphoma
You’ve heard it before. And you don’t need to be told about it again.
So when we state that we have a program called the Four Pillars that covers nutrition/diet/supplements, sleep/stress, exercise and vitamin D you understandably think –aah, I don’t think so – this is incurable cancer. These old notions won’t work.
But that belief could be a strategic error. Based on new science in genetics mentioned above, there are DETAILS in each of these well-known “four pillars” that make a HUGE difference in helping a typical survivor overcome follicular lymphoma.
Believe me, I wouldn’t be writing this now if these things didn’t work. And this site wouldn’t exist if I didn’t think they truly will help you or your loved one as well.
Thank you for visiting LymphomaSurvival.com We hope you found it informative and inspirational.
You are invited to join our group as outlined in the Registration page.
Best in Health from the team at http://www.LymphomaSurvival.com
