What is nutritional therapy for cancer?
Nutritional therapy is the modification of your food, drink and eating pattern to improve your health. This may or may not include the use of nutritional supplements. Nutritional therapy after a cancer diagnosis is based on clinical research and requires a special understanding of cancer and cancer treatments.
What can healthy nutrition do for cancer patients?
Nutritional therapy can be used to manage common side effects during and after treatment such as loss of appetite, nausea and digestive changes.
It is common for people to gain weight, lose weight and lose muscle mass during cancer treatments. Dietary changes can be used to regain a healthy body composition and to better support your immune system to tolerate the treatment and promote recovery afterwards.
