What role can supplements such as curcumin or Vitamin D play in an blood-cancer patient's health? Terry Golombick, PhD Dipl Nut, shares with us how patients diagnosed with early cancers of the blood can try to improve their health status through diet and natural medicine.
Audrey joined the HealthTree Foundation as the Myeloma Community Program Director in 2020. While not knowing much about myeloma at the start, she has since worked hard to educate herself, empathize and learn from others' experiences. She loves this job. Audrey is passionate about serving others, loves learning, and enjoys a nice mug of hot chocolate no matter the weather.
My desire to help patients is driven by the death of a very dear friend to chronic myeloid leukemia while doing a PhD studying the mechanisms of growth of cancer cells in a laboratory. During the painful years undergoing therapy for her disease, I noticed she was given no information on how to try improve her health status and quality of life in order to enable her to fight the disease. I am now dedicated to educating people diagnosed with early cancers of the blood on how to try to improve their health status through diet and natural medicine. Our research has shown how certain supplements can improve certain markers of disease progression in the blood and bone marrow and improve immune function in some patients. A change in diet and lifestyle shows improved quality of life.
