Cancer care can be quite difficult, especially during therapy. Knowing what to do can be confusing especially if you are given conflicting information regarding what you should do. During cancer care your nutrient needs must be met and this requires coordination with Dr. Howard and your cancer specialist.
After cancer therapy, the body typically has significant micronutrient issues that must be addressed. This is added to problems that occur due to cancer therapy to your gut micro biome. Dr. Howard evaluates your needs and will help you create a plan to help your body recover nutritionally after therapy.
