No matter the type of cancer or choice of treatment, cancer patients usually have one common and ultimate goal: to survive and live a long and healthy life. The surgery and treatment can be scary, and most cancer patients and their family members do their homework immediately after a diagnosis, but sharing your experience, talking it out, and not shutting out your friends or family are therapeutic steps that everyone should take.
It’s important for all of us to share experiences with each other, especially when it helps others deal with challenges in their lives. The NutriBullet provided me with a forum through which I’ve reached out to others who have dealt with cancer, whether they’re patients, family members, or friends. So many people benefit from using the NutriBullet to introduce more fruits and vegetables into their diets, one of the many important steps on the tough road to recovery.
Using my NutriBullet as a resource to help me consume more healthy whole foods made me better equipped to deal with post-recovery symptoms and helped me detox from the medications my body depended on for so long. I’m happy to report that I’m living a more active and healthier life now than I did before my cancer diagnosis. As an active member in the cancer community, I love hearing how others have used their NutriBullet on a daily basis to not only deal with the symptoms of treatment, but also to help transition to a healthier lifestyle.
If you’ve dealt with a cancer diagnosis in some form or another, turning to helpful resources will make the ordeal more bearable. It’s all about being proactive. With cancer treatment, things change by the minute and symptoms can be exhausting. However, symptoms like nausea and changes in appetite are manageable in many cases.
Cancer treatments can make food consumption a challenge so it helps to have something that breaks down nutrient-rich foods to make it easier to digest and absorb. The NutriBullet is excellent for extracting the most nutrients out of foods, but knowing exactly what ingredients your body needs for each symptom can make all the difference. For example, using freshly grated ginger in your smoothies helps with nausea. And high protein ingredients, such as peas, nuts and seeds, provide your body with energy. In my case, I used ingredients like lemons, celery, and cucumbers to integrate nutrients like limonoids and cucurbitacins into my diet that have been shown to help fight cancer.
Cancer isn’t the most pleasant subject to talk about, but we can help each other by sharing what we’ve found works best for us, our families, and our friends who have faced or are facing this devastating disease.
