Are you confused with all the conflicting information about which foods you should eat to help fight or prevent cancer?
Are you having trouble maintaining your energy and managing side effects of cancer treatment?
Getting diagnosed with cancer can bring on an overwhelming number of doctor’s appointments, procedures, medications, and much more. So, how does nutrition play into your fight? Staying nourished throughout treatment will help your body heal after procedures. If you’re suffering from side effects of treatments and feeling lousy it can make it hard to want to eat anything at all, let alone the stress of preparing what you’re “supposed to” eat in order to help your body fight cancer. We can help you simplify your meals, meal plan efficiently, and increase the antioxidant rich foods in your diet.
Helping You Fight Cancer
Before Cancer Treatment
Have you just been diagnosed with cancer and have a comprehensive treatment plan ahead of you? We want to do our part in supporting your journey. We can work with you and/ or your family/friends to set up your kitchen, pantry, and freezer with meals so that food is one less thing to worry about. Having meals ready before treatment will help you focus your time and energy on healing.
During Cancer Treatment
Now that you are getting treatment for your cancer, you may experience side effects such as nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea that interfere with your energy and appetite. Keeping these symptoms minimized will keep you in “fighting shape” for your cancer treatments. Our dietitians can help you find ways to provide simple nourishment with food, supplements, and/or tube feedings to make sure you are getting everything you need.
Maintain Weight During Treatment
After Cancer Treatment
Now that you have completed cancer treatment, it is time to rebuild your body and keep regaining your energy. Our dietitians can help you get the most from foods with easy recipes to foster good health and help you get back to living life on your terms, cancer-free!
If you have a strong family history of cancer or genetic pre-disposition to cancer, you may be interested in what you can eat to decrease your risk of cancer. Optimal nutrition can help you promote overall health, well-being and prevention of cancer.
