Novartis Products Repair and Rejuvenate When Nutrition Matters Most
MINNEAPOLIS, Oct. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Weight loss, extreme fatigue, nausea, digestive problems and loss of appetite are some of the many side effects of radiation and chemotherapy during the cancer journey. Whether you're fighting the battle or caring for someone who is, the power of proper nutrition is essential on the road to recovery.
"One of the most important aspects of good nutrition during cancer treatment and recovery is its ability to provide patients with the energy to heal and get their lives back on track," said David Yates, Novartis Medical Nutrition Regional Business Head, North America. "Eating a balanced diet has been proven to speed up the healing process. Patients who consume enough calories and protein to keep their weight up and energy levels high are more able to battle infection. Plus, eating right is easy to control and plays a fundamental role in the successful fight against cancer."
As cancer awareness becomes more visible, especially during October and November (designated by the American Cancer Society as cancer awareness months), so do options and advances in treatment. While patients cope with the inner anguish of living with cancer, companies like Novartis Nutrition are working hard to find ways to alleviate the side effects through balanced nutrition and provide hope to those looking to improve their quality of life.
