How does one prepare for breast cancer treatment?

My mom just got diagnosed with breast cancer. How do I prepare her for this treatment? I’m so stressed and freaking out.

Breast cancer is a challenging diagnosis. We know how you must feel; sadly, in today’s world, we all know someone among friends or family go through this trauma. The most important thing to remember is that staying positive and changing your diet and lifestyle substantially can be huge allies in helping you deal with the cancer. Specific foods can help support your body’s fight against the cancer, while others fuel it. You can read more about this here.

Chemotherapy and radiation can be daunting because of the side effects that many experience. These can be minimized by using dietary supplements. You can find resources about this here. Vitamin C, in large doses, especially delivered intravenously, has been proven to complement chemotherapy, helping the treatment target only cancer cells, leaving healthy cells untouched.
