Why We Treat Cancer
Cancer is the second leading cause of death in the United States, and is highly prevalent, directly affecting almost 12 million men and women as of 2008. Many cancers and their side effects have their root in nutrition, especially those of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract.
Close to 40% of all cancers are lifestyle-related, meaning that they can be prevented by following a healthy diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and fiber, engaging in regular activity, abstaining from smoking, and either limiting or eliminating alcohol consumption. Nutrition therapy can help prevent many cancers and can help those affected by the symptoms of cancer therapy and cancer itself. With our help, you can experience more energy, maintain or regain weight and muscle mass, manage GI symptoms, and boost your immunity.
How We Can Help
Our approach is flexible, personal, and realistic. We will break everything down into small, manageable steps that will help you prevent cancer and strengthen you to fight against it. We will create an individualized program with you, whether that means collaborating on meal, snack, and recipes ideas, offering tips for nutrition before and after cancer treatments, incorporating new foods into your diet, or guiding you to exercises that will help you maintain your muscle mass.
