Mary Hollander, RN/RMT, is the contributor to the Nurture With Nature – Nutrition Tips chapter in The C Card and Me 2 (Now available on Amazon.com). Since I’m still on the learning curve of what’s best for your body to ingest, I thought it made more sense to go to one who is well in the know.
Mary graciously accepted the challenge when I asked her to put her nutrition advice for cancer patients in a nut shell.
I mentioned in The C Card and Me 2 that she has loads of nutrition blogs chock full of great information and best of all, they are FREE to read~ She covers key topics like: antioxidants, calcium, coffee, Dash Diet, endocrine disruptors, general nutrition guidelines, medical marijuana, non-dairy milks, nutrition tips during chemo, protein and sugar.
Everyone who knows me knows I love cheese. I’ve heard more than once that I eat too much of it. Reading this piece from Mary’s nutrition guideline helped to put it all into perspective:
“Dairy is inflammatory and should be eaten in moderation. It also has natural occurring estrogen, even organic or raw dairy. Cows are kept pregnant, which increases the estrogen levels, to increase the milk production and to increase the length of time they can be milked. Estrogen is stored in fat, so if you are concerned about estrogen then use non-fat dairy.”
