Follicular lymphoma survival linking latest research on lifestyle to gene expression. Natural treatments for follicular lymphoma. Nutrition, diet, vitamin D, exercise, sleep, stress. Natural spontaneous regression. Remission. Follicular lymphoma transformation. 4P-GRS Program.
Follicular lymphoma responds to BOTH treatments AND lifestyle.
This is a global community site operating independently for 18 years.
Follicular lymphoma survivors can live for decades, symptom free enjoying a full and active life.
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 follicular lymphoma survivor diagnosed over 30 years ago, currently well and fully active with no remaining evidence of lymphoma.
We do not provide medical advice regarding follicular lymphoma survival. Instead, we help with guidance based on data prepared by experts to assist members when consulting with their doctors.
Personal Comment: The knowledge gained from my own experience during this “journey” of over 30 years, combined with the latest developments in follicular lymphoma are what I wish to share with fellow survivors and caregivers. Details are in our July 2018 Newsletter. I’m confident this program will help guide you toward your own personal success.
Please see What the Members Say page.
We offer our members information on BOTH the latest scientifically-based natural strategies specific to follicular lymphoma AND the currently approved full range of conventional treatments (if/when needed).
Conventional treatment can often be avoided.
Although a cure for follicular lymphoma does not yet exist, the adoption of carefully selected natural strategies based in the latest science can lead to prolonged survival, while enjoying a fully active life without side effects.
Regarding natural strategies, people need credibility. Gene expression driving follicular lymphoma is backed by current scientific research. The National Cancer Institute states that cancer is a genetic disease.
We have combined this new understanding of cancer into a set of natural lifestyle-based strategies referred to as the Four Pillar Gene Remediation Strategies (4P-GRS) Program. After many years of observation it is apparent that this program can lead to natural regression of follicular lymphoma for survivors in clinical remission.
The site is fully independent, free of advertising, supported 100% by its members for over 18 years.
Who This Site is For
This site has been created for committed, proactive survivors and caregivers seeking reliable, balanced, substantive information. These dedicated people:
√ understand that the information received and knowledge to be gained must be more than superficial.
√ realize that sound knowledge promotes confidence, enabling productive communication with doctors and other health care providers.
√ believe that the best chance for success comes from a full awareness of both treatment options AND select, scientifically-based natural strategies for ongoing adoption.
√ desire access to a time-proven program in recognition that *extended, healthy survival is a realistic goal*.
√ want to be well, have a lot to live for… a lot of dreams yet to be fulfilled.
The Way Ahead is Now Brighter
Genetic testing for newly diagnosed survivors, now in development, will help identify the anticipated 20~25% of patients who could benefit from early treatment. When this happens, it is expected that an increased number of individuals in the remaining 80% will have the option to defer treatment (watch and wait) depending on additional clinical factors.
In addition, we are delighted to observe a MAJOR new development taking place. Cancer is (finally) catching up to heart disease in recognizing the importance of lifestyle strategies, not only in prevention but also in “after the fact” management. Our 4P-GRS program zeroes in on the best lifestyle strategies available based on the latest research, specifically designed for survivors of indolent lymphomas.

How Our Program Works
Much more can be offered to survivors of follicular lymphoma than was the case just five years ago.
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.
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.

We Appreciate the Feedback We’ve Received from our Members this Past Month
Just celebrated my 13 year anniversary of being diagnosed with lymphoma. The first three years were extremely challenging with every treatment you can name. The last 10 years have been wonderful. I practice the 4P-GRS program and follow the newsletter suggestions. Life is good. Thanks for all you do for us … Ted, Texas
Thank you so much for all your research. Bob has been doing the majority of your how to live to fight this cancer for 14 years now and so far still no treatment has been needed. Yea!! … Jackie, Washington
Thank you for giving us your account of events for the last 30 years and also the observations and lessons learned. You have inspired me immensely and certainly all the information on the website has helped me during my journey for the last two years when I had my chemo, not to mention the suggestions I received from you when you responded to my emails … Andy, UK
I enjoy reading your articles and newsletters. Thank you for making this complex disease easier to understand! … Diane, Eastern Canada
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.
