Multi-Vitamins in Cancer Care
There are many nutrients that are helpful or harmful in cancer patients. The status of a nutrient for a particular cancer patient can change substantially based upon the type of cancer and on other treatments being used (i.e. surgery, chemotherapy or radiation therapy).
However, simple high-dose and high-potency nutrient supplementation can have a dramatic effect on how patients feel. A patient recently diagnosed with advanced lung cancer expressed to me that her most simple treatment – her premium multi-vitamin – was having the most dramatic effect on her energy and clarity of thought in the face of her disease and numerous treatments for cancer and pain.
Sometimes the simplest things can have the most pronounced effects.
