According to the National Cancer Institute, an astounding 20%-40% of cancer patients die from causes related to malnutrition, not from the cancer itself, and 80% of cancer patients develop some form of clinical malnutrition. With "The Chemotherapy Diet," Mike Herbert and Joseph Dispenza are here to help change these alarming statistics.
Chemotherapy kills cancer cells (and other fast-growing and weak cells in the body, like hair). It doesn't make you healthy. "The Chemotherapy Diet" offers nutritional and other therapeutic advice to help your body stay (or get) healthy while it undergoes aggressive chemo treatments. Herbert and Dispenza concentrate on five primary areas:
Focusing your mind on healingCleansing with therapeutic bathsEating the right foods to create a healing chemistry in your body (includes what to eat and what to avoid)Supplementing your diet correctly to support healing momentumExercising and resting to speed the healing process
Even though it is important to acknowledge that every person and every cancer is different--women with cancer are different from men with cancer, children are different from adults, people with lung cancer are different from those with stomach cancer, and so on--we still share a common chemistry and that has been the guide for assembling a support plan in "The Chemotherapy Diet" that will benefit anyone wishing to remain healthy during and after chemotherapy.
