When one is diagnosed with cancer, so many things start to run through their minds. How did this happen to me? Was this something I could have prevented? What can I do to treat this?
Although these questions usually don’t generate solid answers as cancer is still a mysterious disease, there are so many things you can do to better your chances of beating cancer such as nutrition therapy.
Along with the trend of living green, the idea of eating organic or healthy foods is something that has gained great human interest over the past decade. Maintaining a nutritionally satisfied body through nutrition therapy is something that everyone should strive for, whether or not you have cancer. However, the benefits of doing so while you have cancer are undisputed.
Some benefits of nutrition therapy include:
Although surgery, radiation and chemotherapy are traditional methods of treating cancer, they are also the most aggressive, leaving patients weak, lethargic and feeling sick altogether. Most scientific articles state that weight loss radically increases the mortality rate for most types of cancer while drastically decreasing the effectiveness of chemotherapy.
In order to react more positively to these types of treatments, patients are urged to utilize nutrition therapy so that their bodies are better equipped to handle treatments with stronger immune systems. If nutrition therapy is upheld, tumors can be starved out since they feed on sugars.
Nutrition therapy essentially entails eating healthy foods that supply all kinds of macronutrients, mainly carbohydrates, proteins and fats. Some important nutrients in helping with cancer treatments include fish oil, vitamin C, vitamin K, vitamin A, betacarotene, vitamin E, niacin, selenium, carnitine, quercetin and ginseng. Nutrition therapy can occur by a well-balanced diet as well as maintaining a strong vitamin regimen.
