Nutritional care is a critically important medicinal therapy for overcoming illness and disease prevention – including cancer. Improving nutritional status can repair the body’s built-in mechanisms that restore health.
Nutritional care, in the context of cancer care, can inhibit cancer growth, boost immune function, support the body’s detoxification pathways, increase energy and improve outcomes of chemotherapy and radiation therapy.
A plan will be created to help you enjoy nutritious food, and nutritional supplementation will be suggested as needed. This will provide your body with the fuel it requires to recover, and thrive!
Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food. Hippocrates
Nutritional care is a critically important medicinal therapy for overcoming illness and for disease prevention – especially as relates to cancer. The fact that it has been largely neglected in conventional healthcare models is reflected in our current epidemic of growing chronic diseases, which continue to spread despite the advent of other truly heroic medical interventions.
The future of medicine will be based on reversing malnutrition (which in our cultural context generally refers to a lack of nutrients in food rather than food scarcity). This is already the main topic of discussion at leading healthcare facilities and conferences worldwide. Simply put, most chronic health conditions can be reversed or greatly improved with appropriate dietary interventions and nutritional supplementation.
Nutritional care in cancer care focuses on:
- Inhibiting cancer growth
- Boosting immune function
- Supporting detoxification processes
- Maintaining a healthy weight
- Facilitating healthy hormone metabolism
- Improving outcomes of conventional treatments
Sorting through all the information available on diet is overwhelming. It is easy to be misled. Addressing nutrition offers an opportunity to have clarity on what food choices are best for you. The process isn’t about depriving you of certain foods; rather it’s about enjoying nutritious food while giving your body the fuel it requires to recover and thrive!
