Registered dieticians are highly educated experts in food and human nutrition. They are qualified to assess the nutritional needs of people of all ages and to apply their knowledge in preventing and treating nutrition related conditions. They are trained to work with individuals and groups. They develop and manage complete nutritional plans as well as therapuetic diets for a wide range of health conditions including cancer, diabetes, high blood pressure etc.
The importance of high quality nutrition in the battle against cancer cannot be overstated. Cancer patients who are able to maintain a high nutritional status are not only more likely to fight off infections and recover from their illness, they are also better able to tolerate therapy and its side-effects.
If you need information on cancer, food and nutrition from a trusted expert in this field, we can arrange a visit with our dietician, Ms. Karen Stone.
Ms. Stone received her Honours Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Toronto in 1976. She interned at North York General Hospital from 1976 to 1977. She continues to fulfill the requirements of continuing education as dictated by the College of Dieticians of Ontario.
For the past 29 years Ms. Stone has been providing personalized and group nutritional counselling for cancer and other medical conditions such as heart disease, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, digestive problems, diabetes, hypoglycaemia, auto-immune problems, and osteoporosis. By using complete protocols including diet, lifestyle changes and nutritional supplements, she has helped many patients improve their health conditions.
