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. My team and I now operate this site, which includes a complete and easy-to-apply program designed especially for follicular lymphoma survivors, to help guide our fellow survivors toward their own personal success…Robert].
Who This Site is For
This site is for proactive, committed people who inherently believe (correctly) that extended healthy survival with follicular lymphoma will probably require more than treatments alone.
Treatments for lymphoma — the right ones at the right time — are often necessary and helpful. But they are not sufficient to extend overall survival time OR to create long-term wellness. This is because they are unable to correct faulty gene expression driving the disorder in the first place.
We offer our members a complete program, developed over more than 17 years. The objective is to achieve 20 ++years of healthy, active survival, with the ultimate goal being to overcome follicular lymphoma as a so-called “incurable” disorder. For testimonials describing how this program has helped our members enter the “thrive zone” please see What the Members Say .
What Follicular Lymphoma Survivors Need to Know
From our phone consultations and email communications we hear often from members that they were shocked to get their initial diagnosis. They report feeling fine at the time, often doing many things they thought were healthy.
SO, right from the beginning, the important thing to know is that follicular lymphoma, no matter what stage it is at, is NOT a death sentence. That’s good news!
There is no need to feel powerless or alone.
Thankfully, there are numerous things that a proactive survivor can do to overcome the incurability factor. You will discover several key points here considered to be essential, including how to apply them.
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.

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
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.
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 Four Pillars are a way of life now…Bob, Connecticut
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.
