Nutrition Therapy - The practice of using proper nutrition for optimum wellness and therapeutic benefit. When used alongside conventional cancer treatment, nutrition therapy may help support immune function, improve strength, increase energy, preserve lean body cell mass, rebuild body tissue, decrease risk of infection, and more. Dietitians can help by evaluating an individual's nutritional status and making recommendations for how to stay nourished with healthful foods and a well-balanced diet. Nutrition therapy may involve intravenous (parenteral nutrition) or tube feeding (enteral nutrition).
