Proactive Oncology NutritionEat A Plant Based Diet
Nutrients should always be consumed primarily through food; however, it is important to assess if there is major gastrointestinal disease or dysfunction which would require specific nutrition support. Generally, the diet for the cancer patient should be high in grains, legumes and colorful produce. Whole, natural foods are best since processed foods usually contain excessive amounts of fat, sugar, salt, and preservatives.

Eat Fewer Risky Foods Reduce your intake of fats, particularly saturated fats and hydrogenated food products. Avoid refined sugar products. High intakes of fat and sugar suppress the immune system.

Maintain A Health Gastrointestinal Environment Eat small, frequent meals in an effort to enhance absorption and utilization of nutrients. This suggestion will also help to stabilize blood sugar levels. Increase intake of fiber and fluid. Consider beginning a detoxification program and supplementing with probiotics like acidophilus or fiber compounds.

Supplement Your Diet Additional vitamins, minerals, herbs, and other dietary supplements can be helpful to reduce cancer risk, improve recuperative ability during cancer treatment and help to stimulate immunity. Antioxidants like vitamins C and E and minerals like selenium protect cells from oxidative damage.

Avoid Malnutrition Forty percent of cancer patients die from malnutrition as a primary cause of death. Inadequate calories and/or protein causing significant weight loss can impair immunity and cancer treatment may be interrupted. To ensure dietary adequacy or the need for high calorie/protein supplements, or nutrition support measures, obtain a general health and nutritional status assessment from a qualified health care professional.

Maintain Immunity Fortifying natural defenses is essential to avoiding cancer. A strong immune system also helps to reduce toxic side effects of cancer treatment. Immunity is enhanced by plant substances called phytochemicals, certain vitamins and minerals, amino acids, herbs and positive emotions.

Reduce Toxicity Of Cancer Treatment Conventional oncology treatments such as chemotherapy and radiation can be augmented with proper nutrition and dietary supplements. In addition, certain natural components found in food have been shown to be helpful in decreasing treatment side effects. Try some of the natural remedies for treatment maladies mentioned in this packet.

Get Educated Be proactive in the therapeutic and recovery process. Ask questions. Because each person’s nutritional needs are very individualized, seek out a registered dietitian who can develop a personalized, complementary nutritional therapy program.
