Good nutrition is important for everyone, but cancer treatments introduce different and unique nutritional challenges for many. Optimal nutrition becomes even more important for those in treatment as the body requires more nutrients to repair from the side effects of chemotherapy, radiation and/or surgery.  
Maintaining optimal nutrition can help support your immune function, improve strength and energy and improve your tolerance to treatment.
My goal is to create a customized diet and supplement program to support your optimal nutrition and overall well-being. Our first meeting will often begin with a comprehensive, one-hour nutrition assessment so that I can fully understand your overall health and nutrition prior to your cancer diagnosis and the new issues you face now. In addition, we can perform routine and comprehensive laboratory blood tests, diet analysis reports, body composition testing to determine your body fat and lean tissue percentages, and metabolic testing to determine your daily caloric needs. Cancer and cancer treatments can induce a number of challenging issues, including inflammation, glycemic control, stress chemistry, immune function, food intolerance and digestive issues. Maintaining optimal nutrition can help support your immune function, improve strength and energy and improve your tolerance to treatment. I will develop nutrition-based strategies to address these and other individual concerns, often in collaboration with Garrett, to ensure your care is in complete coordination.   I also believe in ongoing support through education, and for those in or post-treatment, we offer a 12-week nutrition and fitness program
