Not all diets are right for everyone, which is why we often treat patients that have a healthy diet yet developed cancer and patients that are following a one-size-fits-all cancer diet yet are badly malnourished.
Let’s start by explaining that in the presence of disease everything changes when it comes to nutrition. Our clinical nutritionist at Angeles Hospital Tijuana, is an expert in the relationship between food and a healthy body. More specifically, he understands the science of nutrients and how they are digested, absorbed, transported, metabolized, stored and eliminated by the body. Besides studying how food works in your body, he will focus in how the environment affects the quality and safety of foods you eat, and what influence these factors have on your health and your illness.
Our nutritionist is trained to know every patient’s nutritional needs under the stressful condition of chronic illness. Nutrition is the essence of our treatment, making it the first line of therapy: Food as medicine.
To do this, our nutritionist perform a clinical assessment allowing him to tailor a specific-to-your-needs organic whole-foods diet.
