As my first blog in our series about Cancer Treatment Centers of America I wanted to tell you about the organic farm at their Arizona location.
At Cancer Treatment Centers of America in Goodyear, Arizona they have planted an organic farm. It will take a few years to be certified organic but they are well on their way! The farm allows them to use organic food straight from their “backyard”. Not only do the patients benefit from the organic food, but they can leisurely stroll through the farm and view the crops for themselves.
Sufficient nutrition is such a vital role in the cancer treatment process. At CTCA, nutrition therapy is one of the facets of their integrative model of care.
Chefs and nutritionists from CTCA have created a cookbook: http://www.cncahealth.com/cookbook
I’ve been thinking about growing a few things myself. Visiting the farm made me want to really take some action to plant a few things…. Herbs, jalapenos, micro greens…..
Do you have a vegetable garden? Plant garden? What do you like to grow?
What foods do you like to eat during treatment?
