No one deserves to suffer through 6 weeks of daily radiation treatments only to discover afterward that the treatment didn't work to its full potential.
Learn 5 simple evidence-based steps that can make your cancer cells profoundly vulnerable to the killing effects of radiation, while building a protective shield around your healthy cells and lessening your risk of side effects and long-term toxicity. So you can feel confident you're doing everything in your power to heal and empowered to achieve the best possible response to your treatments.
- 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 radiation?
- Can you name the popular beverage that's been documented in several published studies to inhibit tumor cells from repairing radiation-induced damage to their DNA? (Nope, it's not green tea.)
- Do you know which supplements are contraindicated with your treatment? What about antioxidants? Does published research prove they interfere?
What types of radiation treatments does it cover? This program can be used to complement all types of radiation treatments: standard radiation therapy, Gamma knife, bradytherapy (implanted radioactive seeds) and Proton or Boron-Neutron Capture therapies. It can be supportive whether your taking radiation alone, radiation combined with chemotherapy, or short-term course of radiation to alleviate pain (palliative radiation).
You'll have a slight advantage if you can begin 7-10 days before your treatments start, but will still be plenty helpful if you've already started your treatments.
