Nourish for Cancer
Nutrition related Cancer/Chemo/Radiation or Medication side effects:
1.Changes in taste and smell
2.Chemo Brain (cognitive issues)
6.Lack of appetite
7.Gas and Bloating
10.Improved nutrient and possibly medication absorption.
Nourish may help manage all the symptoms above. It is important to both the physician and patient to increase energy, increase immunity, increasing absorption, in order to get the patient up and mobile which can ultimately help the patients compliance to treatment regimens.
Stress, anxiety and other side effects may potentially decrease when a patient has a strong nutritional and immunity health regimen.
Nourish is also designed to “help the patient get out of bed and into the kitchen”. Nourish is base-level and works best when there is also optimal food intake. Nourish helps get to that point and can be used to enhance absorption even when the patient returns to eating.
Nourish for Autoimmune Disease
What is an Autoimmune disease?
Autoimmune disease happens when the body’s natural defense system can’t tell the difference between your own cells and foreign cells, causing the body to mistakenly attack normal cells. There are more than 80 types of autoimmune diseases that affect a wide range of body parts.
Common Autoimmune Disease Symptoms
Despite the varying types of autoimmune disease, many of them share similar symptoms. Common symptoms of autoimmune disease include:
- Joint pain and swelling
- Skin problems
- Abdominal pain or digestive issues
- Recurring fever
- Swollen glands
Nourish can provide a strong Nutritional base to possibly fight against fatigue.
“Understanding the mechanisms behind fatigue will not only aid individuals with autoimmune diseases but could also benefit transplant recipients, cancer patients, and infectious disease patients who experience debilitating fatigue.”

Nourish for General Immunity Defense
What is Immunity Health
immunityis the capability of a host to resist harmful microorganisms such as infections or disease. Parts of the immune system
The main parts of the immune system are:
- white blood cells
- complement system
- lymphatic system
- bone marrow
White blood cells are the key players in your immune system. They are made in your bone marrow and are part of the lymphatic system. White blood cells move through blood and tissue throughout your body, looking for foreign invaders (microbes) such as bacteria, viruses, parasites and fungi. When they find them, they launch an immune attack. Glutamine works to fuel White Blood Cells, repair the intestinal cells and improve gut barrier function and immune function
What the experts say:
“In general, glutamine supplementation reduces the rate of infection, inflammation, length of hospital stay, and mortality, and improves gut barrier function and immune function, especially cell-mediated immunity in critically ill patients.”Kim H.
