In Treatment For Cancer

Drugs and treatments do not work in a vacuum. Think of the food you eat, the exercise you get, rest/sleep and even proper care of your mouth as steps you can take to make treatments and drugs most effective.

Food geared to the needs of your particular treatment, appropriate exercise and rest can help you your treatment work. Dental health also counts. (Mounting evidence indicates that poor oral care can worsen serious medical problems).

This may be a time when you want to reach for what you think of as your comfort foods - the foods that make you feel better when you're down. Do it occasionally - enough to keep you able to stay with your health regimen. The longer you eat healthy foods, the less likely you'll need unhealthy comfort foods.

Existing evidence strongly suggests that exercise is safe and possible during cancer treatment. It also can improve physical functioning and some aspects of quality of life.

Exercise doesn't have to be done at the gym, or even that strenuous. There are even exercises you can do lying in bed or sitting in a chair. Brisk walking helps.
