Nutritional therapists don’t aim to cure cancer through diet but try to improve your health. They use methods such as detoxing, high-dose vitamins or avoiding certain food groups.
There’s no medical evidence that nutritional therapy can reduce the chance of cancer coming back and no reliable research has shown that it can improve health.
Nutritional therapists assess your general health and recommend a diet that’s thought to be specific to your needs. Nutritional therapists are different from dietitians. Dietitians use current medical evidence to give specific advice to people with eating or weight problems as well as advice on healthy eating in general. Your doctor or nurse can refer you to an NHS dietitian.
