Cancer and many of the treatments used to beat it take a serious toll on your body, your energy level, your appetite and your attitude. That’s why taking good care of yourself during treatment is so important. It can help you feel better physically and emotionally, and it may even improve your treatment outcome. Studies of breast cancer patients, for instance, have found those who eat a well-balanced diet have a higher rate of survival compared to those who don’t consume a healthy diet.
Consider these tips to enhance your health while you are undergoing cancer treatment. Just be sure to discuss trying anything new or stopping anything you’re already doing with your oncologist. This is a trying time, but your will to be well—body, mind and spirit—can go a long way to supporting the healing process. We wish you the best on your road to recovery.
