Maintaining a Healthy Diet During Chemotherapy

Chemotherapy, as anyone who has gone through, will tell you, can come with its very own, serious side effects. The radiation from the treatment can make your mealtime especially difficult as chemotherapy can alter your appetite and your sense of taste and smell. It can make you nauseous, making it difficult to keep food down. You may experience diarrhoea or constipation, severe weight loss or gain, and/or pains from dry mouth or mouth sores. All these potential symptoms can make maintaining a healthy diet extremely hard and this is at a time where being well-fed with healthy foods is imperative to maintain strength to fight off any illnesses that may arise during your weakened state.
