The Essential Cancer Treatment Nutrition Guide & Cookbook
Specialized nutritional information for individuals undergoing treatment.
Recent research indicates that diet can influence a patient’s cancer treatment and survival rate, and can help manage side effects. This book, written for both patients and caregivers, addresses the unique requirements of a patient undergoing cancer treatment.
A patient’s appetite waxes and wanes during treatment, often limiting their ability to meet optimal nutritional requirements, so an integral component of the book is strategies for dealing with that challenge, from advice on managing the side effects of treatment with particular foods and nutrients to make-ahead meals that can be frozen and reheated at a moment’s notice to recipes for foods that are simply more palatable at certain stages of treatment.
The recipes are tabbed to make it easy to identify what side effects they help with, and each includes information on how to adapt it based on symptoms. This invaluable resource will help alleviate the worry patients and caregivers face when dealing with the nutritional issues associated with cancer treatment.
