The Cancer Diet: Preparing the Body to Fight Cancer

Have you heard the saying,” You are what you eat”? A lot of truth is in that statement, especially when fighting cancer. Cancer nutrition is all about choosing foods that fight cancer and avoiding foods that create cancer-friendly conditions.

Cancer Center Virginia

Patients in our comprehensive cancer care program meet with our certified cancer nutritionist to establish a cancer diet that is rich in cancer-fighting vitamins, minerals and nutrients and low in compounds that increase cancer risks. We address the key areas of your diet, including:

-Vitamins and minerals

-Carbohydrates, fats and proteins

-Water intake

-Foods that prevent cancer

-Foods to fight cancer during treatment

Choose Foods That Prevent Cancer

At Natural Horizons, the centerpiece of our cancer nutritional program is counseling that helps patients choose a diet rich in cancer-preventing foods. While no cancer prevention diet is 100% effective, there are steps you can take to incorporate cancer-fighting foods into your diet.

Working with our nutritional counselors, you learn about:

• Common, easy-to-find cancer-preventing foods

• Foods that can increase your cancer risk

• Recipes for cancer-fighting foods at every meal

In addition to foods that help prevent cancer, foods that fight cancer are available, too. Foods like kale, broccoli and cauliflower are natural cancer fighters. Your Natural Horizons nutritional specialist will teach you about these powerful cancer-fighting foods.
