Learn more about Nutritional care...
For cancer patients, optimal nutrition plays an important role in quality of life. Cancer can deplete your body's nutrients, cause weight loss and can also have a negative effect on appetite and your body's ability to digest foods.
Seeing a nutrition specialist can be very helpful. Our Registered Dietitian and Herbalist, Cindy Gates RD, LD, has years of specialized training and experience in helping cancer patients support their immune system and counteract the effects of their illness.
Seeing our dietitian can help you have fewer nutrition-related symptoms, such as nausea and vomiting, constipation, diarrhea, difficulty swallowing, dry mouth, and lack of appetite.
She can also help you develop a nutritional supplement program that helps boost your body's ability to cope with illness.
Most important – getting assistance from our dietitian can help patients feel better, tolerate their treatments better, and have a better quality of life!
