Somehow I don’t quite think of sitting in a cold tank as being comfortable and certainly seems an odd path to health. However, this trend called cryotherapy is becoming very popular as Zawn Villin…

The immune system takes a real hit with multiple myeloma and makes it much harder to fight infections. For this reason, your immune system is a focus in many of the mainstream treatments for multiple myeloma. You might want to consult with your doctor to consider the different immune system drugs out there, what they do and how they work. You may also want to speak to an alternative physician to educate yourself on more natural ways to fight cancer.
Biologics are medicines that believed to help your immune system to control your myeloma. These drugs are made from living organisms and some can boost the immune system to help the body fight the disease. Some suppress it to do the same thing and yet more destroy cancer cells directly or reduce the side effect of other treatments. We at New Hope Unlimited believe it is best to use your own biologicals to enhance the immune system. But for the purpose of this article, I am reporting on what mainstream medicine is doing with a lot of synthetic drugs.
There are three medications taken as pills that is said to help your immune system point out and attack cancer cells. They are also called immunomodulators or immune-modifying drugs.
These three are:
Common side effects of all three of these drugs include low blood counts, a “pins and needles” feeling or pain in the arms and legs and a higher risk of blood clots that can travel to the lungs from the leg. There are even more side effects for each drug that your doctor will discuss with you.
Other drugs are:
Some biologics are in development in clinical trials. Your doctor might suggest you join in one of these to try. They are adoptive T-cell transfers, which use the body’s T cells (white blood cells that help fight disease) to destroy the cancer. Vaccines would work like more-common vaccines to jump-start the immune system to attack cancer cells.
Wouldn’t there possibly be a natural alternative treatment to build the immune system? Consult with your doctor as to the best drug that will fit for you. There are many options for edications listed above.
