Clinical Nutrition

Nutrition and the therapeutic use of nutrient dense whole foods is a cornerstone of whole person cancer care and prevention. With appropriate dietary modification and nutritional supplements such as vitamins, minerals, enzymes and other nutraceuticals, cancer can be treated with fewer complications and side effects.

Our goal is to support a patient’s body with optimal nutrition, right from the point of diagnosis, during treatment and through recovery.


What to expect from a nutritional consultation

Based on a patient’s intake information, initial nutritional support material and recipes are provided to help people develop more informed food choices and meal plans for the promotion of health and prevention of cancer. Additional testing will be done if necessary. Phase one of the patient’s specific nutritional protocol is based on assessing individual needs and action steps are set up. A 30-minute follow-up appointment reviews progress and plans are made to overcome any challenges. A 15-minute phone call follow-up occurs one month later. Any other follow-up sessions are booked on an as-needed basis.
