Up to 80% of cancer patients are diagnosed with malnutrition

1 in 3 cancer patients die of severe malnutrition

It’s a shocking fact that people rarely talk about. Cancer patients find treatment so taxing that they are unable to eat, falling prey to malnutrition and cachexia. Cachexia is a form of extreme malnutrition that is irreversible. Other patients forgo treatment because of the excruciating and unrelenting side effects.

Extreme treatment side effects shouldn’t be a part of modern cancer treatment. Eating the right foods at the right time as an integrated part of cancer treatment can reduce the severity of treatment side effects and help to keep them under control and more manageable.

We are applying the science of nutrition to make today’s cancer treatments less toxic, more manageable, and more effective. Cancer starves the body of nutrition. Savor uses nutrition to fight back.

Services

Research

One of the best offerings from Savor Health is the peace of mind their website provides cancer patients and their caregivers. The amount of cancer research coming out at any one time can be overwhelming, even for the most science-savvy patient.

The oncology Registered Dietitians and nurses at Savor Health provide summaries of key findings, along with what this information means for patients, as each new study is released. Our recommendations are based on peer-reviewed data, not anecdotes. Patients know they’re getting cutting-edge nutrition information.

 

Meals to Heal Cookbook

The Meals to Heal Cookbook answers the question “What should I eat?” Friends and family are eager to show their support through food, but often find themselves at a loss as to what to cook, due to cancer’s numerous nutritional side effects.

The Meals to Heal Cookbook addresses a wide range of cancer side effects and provides 150 recipes for healthy meals that are safe for cancer patients — and still delicious for the whole family. Eating should be a social celebration and the Meals to Heal Cookbook is designed to bring cancer patients back to the table.

Nutritional Counseling

Our team of oncology-credentialed Registered Dietitians is available 7 days a week to counsel patients and their caregivers to meet their specific dietary needs. From restricted diets (vegan, paleo, kosher, halal, vegetarian) to food allergies, we can come up with a custom meal plan for any cancer patient.

Meal Delivery

Not every cancer patient has someone who can dedicate themselves to preparing custom-made, nutritious meals every day. Proper nutrition is vital to patients staying strong enough for treatment — we’re here to fill that gap. Our oncology Registered Dietitians will talk to the patient or caregiver each week and come up with a custom menu plan. Freshly prepared meals will arrive at your doorstep each week, ready to heat and eat.

Savor Health offered me peace of mind during my treatments. They were fresh and nutritious meals that were tailored to my own personal needs. It was the best gift that my family could have given me during this difficult time.
