GREENFIELD, Wis., July 20 /PRNewswire/ -- TherapEase Cuisine, Inc. announces the launch of its one-of-a-kind online nutritional service and meal-planning program for cancer patients. The web-based program can be accessed by logging-on to www.therapeasecuisine.com. Founded by cancer survivors, the program is based on accepted oncology-dietetic practice and was developed by registered dietitians. It is available to cancer patients and health care systems treating cancer patients to assist in maintaining nutrition throughout treatment.
Each year 1.5 million Americans are diagnosed with some form of cancer. To date, nutritional support for cancer out-patients is often limited to minimal advice from their oncologists and some specific cookbooks that are on the market.
"Studies have shown that customized nutritional modifications to complement a patient's course of treatment can be very beneficial before, during and after treatment," said James Hermann, President and CEO of TherapEase Cuisine. "That's why we've developed a program for cancer patients - that they can individually sign up for or that health care systems can purchase and offer to their patients."
TherapEase Cuisine program participants receive individualized and detailed food recommendations, as well as direct support via e-mail or phone from staff dietitians. The program features expert advice customized to each patient's diagnosis, treatment and criteria; as well as regular re-assessment and modifications based on symptoms and side effects as they materialize; and a library of educational information including updates for new studies and developments in the field of oncology dietetics.
One program subscriber, Phyllis Blackburn said: "I've been through major cancer treatment five times and the TherapEase Cuisine program provided great educational materials and information that helped me maintain a nutritional balance like never before. I enjoyed the meal planning and found foods I liked that were healthy for my diagnosis and side effects. It kept me focused on eating the right foods."
Headquartered in Greenfield, Wis., TherapEase Cuisine strives to improve the general health and minimize the cancer treatment side effects for all program participants. The service is affordable and convenient so all cancer patients can realize improved health and improved odds of successful treatment through improved diet.
