Did you know your protein requirement doubles during treatment and that eating enough protein can help protect your blood counts? Would you like to know which nutrients sensitize cancer cells to the killing effects of chemotherapy? If you knew that most chemotherapy drugs deplete a nutrient essential to energy production, wouldn't you want to replenish this nutrient so you'd experience less fatigue? Do you know which supplements are contraindicated with your treatment? What about antioxidants? Does published research prove they interfere? Let us teach you how to maximize your cancer therapy with nourishing foods, nutrients, herbs, and lifestyle strategies that complement your medical care.
This program includes:
Report Of Translational Research—Summarizes the most compelling nutrition research on optimizing your diet and nutrition to complement your cancer treatment, and draws powerful, actionable conclusions that we'll help you put into practice.
