Nutrition and Wellness

Nutrition is critical to the well-being of everyone, but can become especially important for someone who has been diagnosed with breast cancer. Whether you are receiving active treatment for cancer or have entered the survivorship phase, nutrition counseling can help you learn about how food and certain lifestyle behaviors can affect your health. At the Dubin Breast Center, we offer a variety of nutrition services, with the goal of helping you feel and function at your best.

Personalized Nutrition and Wellness Counseling

Research has continues to show certain diet and lifestyle factors play important roles in improving breast cancer outcomes, in addition to improving general health and quality of life. At Dubin, we analyze the latest research to help guide you towards optimal wellness. We offer compassionate and personalized counseling based on your current health, goals, and life obstacles that encourages nourishment and the enjoyment of quality food rather than restriction or fad dieting. To promote healthy and sustainable behavior changes, nutrition consultations focus on lifestyle factors that contribute to health, such as sleep patterns, diet, physical activity and stress.
