ABTA Webinar: Nutritional Supplements for Brain Tumors
I constantly see brain tumor victim and caregiver blog conversations about diet and supplements. Chia seeds, berries and the Ketogenic diet are just a few of the raging topics folks are grabbing onto with gasping hope.
So the American Brain Tumor Association’s December 11th webinar entitled “Nutritional Supplements for brain tumors” - https://www3.gotomeeting.com/register/924039574 - seems both important and timely.
If you haven’t watched a webinar, no worries. If you have access to the internet, you can watch. You can watch with friends, from a hospital room or from you living room wearing pajamas. I’ve watched several webinars (no, I didn’t wear pajamas) and have found them to be helpful.
Part of the reason that I like them is that I like to see and listen to folks (like Dr. Chaudhary) than I like to read stuff, even important stuff.
Here’s the ABTA’s promotional copy about the seminar:
“Many brain tumor patients have questions about which supplements they can take, should take, or can safely take with other medications and treatment regimes. What happens if your doctor does not have the answer or is not open to this type of discussion? There are other brain tumor patients who will choose to take a regiment of supplements on their own without trying to discuss it with their doctor at all. Your doctor and healthcare providers are your team members in your brain tumor journey, you need to partner with them in your care.
Join Rekha Chaudhary, MD, assistant professor of medicine at the University of Cincinnati Neuroscience Institute as she presents Supplements for Brain Tumors. Dr. Chaudhary will present the research behind nutritional supplements, which ones to avoid, which ones will help with various side effects related to brain tumors, and if there are any new studies on the horizon involving brain tumors and supplements. This webinar includes an online Q & A session with Dr. Chaudhary. The webinar will also be recorded and the link will be sent to all registrants after the live session. Please make sure to enter a valid email address when registering to ensure you receive the link to view the webinar. “
