Nutritional Oncology & Supplementation
Nutritional oncology is the application of nutrients whether through food or supplementation, that is indicated to lower the risk of many cancers, their treatment side effects - including secondary and recurrent cancers - and thereby contributing to an improved quality of life for cancer patients through their journey and post remission.
Over the course of the program we touch upon nutritional support, nutritional labelling, meal planning, organic foods, juicing, and much more.
In addition, we review nutritional supplements and their role in reducing or eliminating risk factors and side effects and protecting against metastasis.
It is important that cancer patients and survivors are aware of the risk factors that lead to the diagnosis. A complete assessment enables you to begin reversing risk factors and helps to encourage recovery and prevent recurrence.
We work on breaking negative habits that may contribute to increasing risk factors, i.e., smoking, poor nutritional habits, etc. In addition, we support you in incorporating new lifestyle habits to break the cycle that lead to the cancer diagnosis, such as deep breathing, qigong, rebounding, saunas, dry brushing, contrast showers, etc.
In terms of spiritual, mental and emotional wellness, we also review with you the importance of sleep, meditation, stress reduction, self-acceptance and expression, social connections, laughter, music and much more.
The world is changing and when it comes to the quality of the air we breathe, the food we eat and the water we drink, it is far from a positive change.
We will go over your exposure to electromagnetic pollution, radiation, organochlorines, excessive estrogens and other environmental contaminants and review natural alternatives where available.
We will go over information on environmental toxins, products in your home, ingredients in your personal care products, etc. and ways to mitigate toxic exposure in these areas.
