As the video illustrates there are a lot of side effects from chemotherapy. Dr. Cathcart talks a bit about avoiding the side effects with good nutrition and suggests:
1. more frequent smaller meals
2. drink an hour before and an hour after eating to allow digestive juices to stay at full strength
3. you can take vitamins and minerals that may help side effects of chemotherapy and also may help enhance the treatment itself

Further discussion from Rose Ragan
Two of the most worrisome side effects of chemotherapy are excessive weight loss and the loss of appetite. Lots of patients undergoing treatment do not want to eat much and so it becomes harder to boost the nutrition intake. With supernutritious liquid products getting better nutrition becomes that much easier.
