One of the most dreadful things in life is to get diagnosed with cancer. And its more painful to confront a recurrence.

Are you a survivor or know a survivor?

What can I do to prevent cancer from coming back?

– is a common question on many lips.

‘An Evening for Cancer Survivors & Caregivers’ at San Francisco on January 14th was a major educational event that the Helpsy Team attended on behalf of our followers.

At the symposium, Dr. Carol A Rosenberg, MD, FACP had some valuable tips for cancer survivors. We have penned them down in our style:

  1. Be confident. Be confident in your efforts and chances of living your life to the fullest.
  2. Get a pedometer. Do moderate intensity exercise for 30 minutes every day.
  3. Therapeutic exercise done regularly can reduce anxiety, depression and chemo brain (cognitive problems in survivors)
  4. Switch to a healing diet. Plant based diets are linked with reduced risk of recurrence. Load your plate with 8-10 servings of fruits and vegetables.
  5. Maintain portion control and eat quality foods.
  6. Limit red meat to 3 oz a day while choosing fish, lean meat and poultry without skin.
  7. Avoid charred food.
  8. Restrict alcohol intake to <2/ day for men and <1/day for women.
  9. Restrict the urge to get your own supplements unless prescribed by your doctor.
  10. Sleep sound for at least 6-8 hours a day.
  11. Maintain a healthy body weight.
