Nutrition for Cancer Patients

Nutrition for Cancer Patients

At the time of your cancer diagnosis getting expert Oncology nutrition advice for your treatment can help you with your recovery and reduce your risk of recurrence.

The internet is full of dietary advice for cancer patients. Little of this is from a scientific evidence-base and can lead to cancer patient following restrictive practices that adversely affect health and treatment outcomes.

Clemency works with cancer patient nutrition groups at Solaris Cancer Care in Perth, Western Australia. For several years she has been delivering cancer nutrition education and cooking sessions for clients at Solaris Cancer Care.

She also provides individual appointments to allow Oncology patients to work on their specific cancer nutrition goals in relation to their diagnosis.

Aims of personalised cancer patient nutrition support:

  • To allow therapy goals for best outcome to be met (minimising treatment interruptions)
  • Aiding intake if side-effects are problematic
  • Improving energy recovery and nutrient status preservation
  • Providing the most up-to-date nutrition recommendations for both radiotherapy nutrition and chemotherapy nutrition
  • Preventing unintended weight loss
  • Preventing unnecessary restriction

An individual Oncology nutrition appointment at The Nutrition Specialists can target the specific needs of your health over the treatment cycle and beyond.
