About Cancer

Normal cell growth needs to be regulated and this involves a constant balancing act between cell growth and cell death, where both are equally vital. When damage occurs to our cells from factors such as sunburn, pesticides, tobacco smoke, poor diet, alcohol, microbial infection, chemical irritation etc the DNA, our genetic makeup can mutate leading to a change in the way our cells behave. Cancer develops when cells start dividing out of control. Nevertheless many mutations are required before a cancer develops and this can take years so getting to know what to avoid and what is good can help enormously.

Common cancers have been directly linked to a variety of nutritional factors. For instance, bowel cancer risk is linked to a lack of fibre, vegetables and wholegrains and red meat as is associated with higher risk in prostate cancer. If you have cancer in the family, it is good to know what you can do to protect yourself.

Before, during and after chemo

When often so much to do with cancer treatment feels out of our control, it can be very empowering to focus on nourishing yourself and good nutrition counts for a lot.

I will be advising on simple meal options which are quick and easy to make even when you don’t feel like eating. These will provide nutrient dense foods for maximum nutrition and maintaining good weight.

There may be key supplements which are relevant to your cancer. I will be in communication with your oncologist and GP for approval of any dietary plan or supplements I wish to recommend. All supplements will have been checked for possible interactions with your medications.

With nutritional guidance and coaching support, we can take it one step at a time, so you don’t feel over loaded.
