Nutrition and Cancer

Cancer nutrition counseling before, during and after treatment is centered on health maintenance. There are many factors that influence what we eat, so it comes as no surprise that eating healthy can be a major challenge.

One-on-one nutrition visits are focused on the individual needs and goals of the patient. They consider other factors affecting wellness such as diabetes, heart disease, food allergies and sensitivities, immune system disorders, kidney and liver function, vegetarian diets, weight management, and migraine headaches.

Our Registered Dietitians are accredited by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and the National Certification Board of Diabetes Educators. This education enables them to provide up-to-date, qualified Medical Nutrition Therapy and education throughout your cancer journey.

Insurance Coverage:

Private insurance and physician groups often cover a variety of diagnoses for Medical Nutrition Therapy. Contracts are with Providence Saint John’s Health Center. As a courtesy, we offer private discounts for those not covered by insurance.

In the future, all patients will receive complimentary nutrition consults as part of their cancer care here at Providence Saint Johns.
