My name is Robert G. Miller. I was diagnosed in July 1988 with stage 4, nodular and diffuse Non-Hodgkins lymphoma. This cell type corresponds to a composite grade 1 / grade 3a follicular lymphoma according to the classification system used today.
Over many years I have researched this disorder in terms of conventional treatment options and scientifically-based lifestyle strategies that together influence the course of follicular lymphoma, and hence long-term survival.
As a result of this research and its personal application, I’m fortunate to be healthy and fully active, my lymphoma now overcome based on recent annual checkups.
My desire is to share the research I have done with fellow survivors (and caregivers) having a similar diagnosis so that they too may benefit.
But make no mistake; I am no walking miracle; a survivor just lucky to have “good genes”. I received conventional treatment in years two, nine and ten, including treatment for transformation in years 10 and 20. (Last treatment finished in 2009).
Over the past 6+ years it has been possible to turn the lymphoma around by applying new scientific data linking lifestyle and other factors to the expression of genes now known to drive follicular lymphoma. (For clarification, this is NOT alternative medicine).
Recent checkups reveal no evidence of active lymphoma. It’s a goal always thought achievable at least theoretically, but not possible to realize until now, thanks in large part to research from prominent biologists and geneticists.
Follicular lymphoma is still officially regarded as an incurable disorder. However, the outcome I have been able to achieve is as close to overcoming the “incurability” barrier as possible.
There is no one thing that leads to this outcome. Success arises from application of our 4-Pillar Gene Remediation Strategies (4P-GRS) program described on the Homepage and detailed in Articles 3, 10 and 11 on our site.
By way of background, I have a master’s degree in engineering, was a college instructor for 10 years and college dean for 16 years. In addition to the active management of this website I now pursue a variety of hobbies, camping and wilderness hiking in various locations, including California in the winter season while residing on Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada.
