Cancer dietary guidance, menus and recipes

There is an ever-growing body of medical evidence that nutrition health and treatment dietary intakes are both an important part in the overall treatment of cancer. As what you eat can make a difference to how well you cope, the treatment responses, the management of side effects and fatigue. It can also help you to curb weight gains or losses, lymphoedema, eating, digestive and gut function difficulties, along with the ongoing health and recurrence risks.

This is why Jane Freeman, an internationally regarded cancer dietitian has set up a cancer specialist nutrition practice called CANutrition.

The practice offers one-on-one nutrition treatment plans and helps support with menus, recipes, tip sheets and cooking workshops run out of the Kay Van Norton centre for wellbeing at the Mater Hospital. North Sydney.

    Jane's individualised approach

    Jane Freeman is an internationally regarded and very experienced cancer dietitian and nutritionist (APD, APN). She is also a Leith's trained cook, an IOC (International Olympic Committee) qualified sports nutritionist and award-winning cancer book author.

    She has worked out of leading hospitals and cancer clinics in Australia, London and Singapore, as well as consulted to the World Cancer Research Fund UK, Singapore Cancer Society and the Australian Cancer Council.

    Jane understands that every person she sees is an individual with their own set of dietary likes or dislikes and needs. She spends the time needed to understand  their medical and health parameters, to assess their nutrition health states and what in fact they actually do eat, before then detailing the specifics of what could be adjusted in their usual approaches to contribute more.

    People who consult Jane say the 1:1 nutritional advice given makes an enormous difference to how they feel and do. They feel comforted to know what they need at this time and what are the best food or supplement options for them.

    Your nutrition plan will include:
