Pathway to cure is a personal journey over more than three decades with follicular lymphoma, including adoption of lifestyle strategies leading to gene remediation.
A Pathway to Cure – we never thought it possible
Seems like once things fall into place … follicular lymphoma is reduced … perhaps with the help of conventional medicines, which may or may not be needed. Then, scientifically-based “wellness” strategies are adopted. Then, the newly discovered miracle of human biology begins to unfold … gene switches that control follicular lymphoma get flipped back to where they should be … and on come the lights of life.
Welcome to the follicular lymphoma thrive zone. We never thought it possible!
A long journey gathering experience
If you are a first time visitor to this site, you are probably wondering how it is possible to be out more than 32 years after diagnosis with an incurable cancer, now fully active and healthy, with no measurable lymphoma left.
What exactly did I do? Was I just lucky… a miracle case?
In the beginning I tried to learn as much as I could. During the late 1980s and 1990s I researched and applied the best natural anticancer strategies I could find. At the same time, I focused on fitness with a strong emphasis on physical activity.
The things I did in these first two decades after diagnosis probably helped, but they were not sufficiently effective such that I was able to avoid treatment.
Three sessions of treatment were required; the first in year two, the second in year 10 and the third in year 20. There were periods of clinical remission in between, but evidence of lymphoma was always present despite encouraging indications of natural regression (shrinkage of nodes) in several locations.
Starting around 2008, I took advantage of new (in essence “breakthrough”) genetic-based research verifying the linkage between specific lifestyle strategies and the expression of genes driving cancer (and certainly follicular lymphoma). I was then able to take the approach I had already been working on for over 20 years and refine it, now making it far more effective than ever before.
The outcome of this work (constantly updated) is our Four Pillar Epigenetics Program (4PEP) in Article #3.
Over the last 10 years it is now clear from expert examination and abdominal scanning that my lymphoma has disappeared. This outcome suggests a “clinical cure”; this being as close to a full “molecular cure” as is possible.
Once a person’s lymphoma status reaches this point and is sustained for several years (probably at least five), it is likely that the mutation status of the genes that led to getting lymphoma in the first place has been corrected. Ongoing application of the 4PEP program will ensure optimal expression of tumor suppressor genes and DNA repair genes. See the Follicular Lymphoma Flow Chart.
My personal history, year by year, can be reviewed in Article #12 on our website at https://www.LymphomaSurvival.com
I always believed that if one or more nodes could go into natural, permanent regression, why couldn’t they all? Now I know they can. This is the “possible dream” that many survivors can now hold as their personal vision.
Based on regular feedback received from our members, many are experiencing natural regression.
Summing It Up
NEW HOPE –Justified and Explained
Significant new insights into the nature of cancer have taken place, mainly over the last five years.
Follicular/indolent lymphoma can no longer be regarded as “incurable”.
Survivors, as never before, can now gain access to guidance describing practical things specific to indolent lymphoma that we can do ourselves to help hold this disorder in check, perhaps even reverse it.
New Hope with a Fresh Start in Life following diagnosis is now possible.
