Why Nutrition Therapy?
Clinical studies show that adding personalized nutrition therapy to your treatment plan results in better quality of life and improved long-term outcomes for cancer patients.
Cancerous cells grow rapidly at the expense of the healthy cells. As a result 4 of 5 cancer patients have malnutrition and 1 in 5 cancer deaths are related to malnutrition.
In addition, any cancer treatment, whether it's chemo or radiation, is a destructive process that will kill healthy cells even as it destroys cancerous cells. As a result, malnourished patients just don't do as well during cancer treatments compared with people who have help eating what they should, They have more complications and poorer outcomes.
In clinical studies, targeted nutrition has been shown to minimize damage to your body and your cells while maximizing the impact of your treatment on cancer cells.
What Our Patients Say
"Care4ward helped me transform my diet during my ovarian cancer treatment. As a result of the changes I made in my diet, I feel better than I did before cancer struck. Weekly phone consultations with a warm and caring nutritionist gave me a heightened sense of control in my outcome. I highly recommend this service."
