Cancer and Nutrition - Does it work!

 There is no specific cancer diet. This diet is meant to support overall health and wellbeing and is not to be considered as a substitute for sound medical advice or specifically for the standard of care (treatments) for you or anyone with cancer.

 Cancer is a complex disease that involves genetics, diet, lifestyle, and environmental factors. It is believed that perhaps up to 60% of women’s cancers and 40% of men’s cancers are related to nutritional factors. The National Cancer Institute states that eating a healthy diet may prevent 33% of all cancer deaths. The World Cancer Research Fund and the American Institute for Cancer research has reviewed more than 4,500 studies on foods and cancer and came up with some dietary recommendations.

You are unique and your nutritional needs before, during and after cancer care are also unique. Your body weight, type of cancer, extent of cancer (tumor, metastasis, etc.), medications and other factors will determine how you should eat and what nutritional supplements you should consider consuming. Your nutritional needs for proteins, healthy fats, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals, phytonutrients and other nutraceuticals will change over time as your health situation changes including your laboratory tests. Tests such as a body composition analysis, blood pH, lactic acid, nitric oxide, vitamin C levels, vitamin C use tests, absorption tests, calcium, oxidative stress (MDA) and other analyses may be important for you to personalize nutritional needs.
