Nutritional support during treatment can help you to cope better with your disease by maintaining physical and emotional strength. Our oncology certified dieticians work with you to design nutritional plans that specifically address the issues brought about by cancer treatment.
Good nutrition can improve your strength and energy level, and help you maintain a healthy weight. We have nutrition experts who will work with you to develop an evidence-based diet plan that helps to strengthen the body as a whole. Just as many foods are known to increase the risk of ill health, many foods are known to improve health. Natural herbs, in combination with nutrition counseling may be a way to live a healthier life.
Good nutrition can help maximize your cancer therapy with nourishing foods, nutrients that enhance the efficacy of your surgery, radiation and/or chemotherapy treatments, while safely reducing their toxic side effects. We utilize scientifically–based strategies to help control your cancer with wholesome foods and natural dietary supplements.
This strategy can strengthen your immune system, help change your biochemistry system, assist in controlling inflammation and prompt your cancer cells to mature into healthy cells. Your nutrition protocol is based on published scientific research and tailored to your specific needs.
Always discuss your thoughts about your care plans with your oncologist.
