Optimal nutrition creates a foundation all the way down at the cellular level for a strong and healthy body. Through understanding the relationship between our external environment (i.e. the food we ingest) and our internal environment (cellular function fueled by nutrient absorption) we are able to achieve the complete, balanced nutrition essential to ensuring the harmonious system functioning that is at the core of what we think of as good health.
At the Angles Functional Oncology Treatment Center we use nutrition as our first line of therapeutic defense. Our program recognizes that restoring nutritive balance is the essential first step to promote healing in a body that is stressed by the burden of invasive chronic illness.
In most westernized societies, modern food production, processing and transport technologies as well as lifestyle have combined to create an environment in which convenience and preservation have largely replaced nutritional content as the dominant selection criteria driving food choices. The unintended consequence has been a negatively charged version of “We are what we eat”; without a doubt, this modernization of our food supply chain has resulted in critical nutritional deficits that at minimum prevent optimum health, and may promote or even accelerate disease progress.
Angeles Functional Oncology Treatment Centers provide organic food to all patients prepared by top Chefs from the Culinary Art Institute.
Your treatment program approaches nutrition from a healing perspective, approaching food as medicine. As a patient you will be “prescribed” with a nutrition plan based on your unique needs, with special attention given to identifying and addressing deficiencies, higher nutritional needs, and allergies – some you may not even be aware of having - as well as taste and appearance.
As a patient of the Angeles Functional Oncology Treatment Program, you will benefit from a specially prepared diet that is utterly free of chemicals and preservatives. Your program diet will consist entirely of organic whole foods, including organic fruits and vegetables, free range poultry, hormone-free meat and eggs, as well as metal- and mercury-free salmon and fish.
Your diet plan is crafted by the Team and subject to a review, refinement and input process that flows through the clinical nutritionist to the kitchen and our functionally trained chefs. The end product is a customized nutrition plan that is the starting point for healing.
Your food plan will be rich in phytonutrients, antioxidants, probiotics, high quality protein, high fiber, and low glycemic-index carbohydrates, all of which provide the essential factors for a healthy gastrointestinal system function and act to “kick start” the liver detoxification process that will reduce your toxic load.
During disease and sickness, chronic inflammation can create an acidic state at the cellular level and thus creating more cellular waste. Your program diet will promote alkalinization as well as anti-inflammation, creating a balanced internal environment.
Hypo allergenic diet plan
Each patient's diet will be free of known common dietary allergens such as gluten and dairy, and is designed to promote immune tolerance.
