Right Healing And Therapy For Cancer

The first step to managing cancer: understanding it

The news of cancer can be traumatic for patients as well as their families, however taking the right measures to manage cancer effectively is key.
Healing begins with listening to what your body needs and making essential changes in your diet and lifestyle. And that’s where CARER can help you get it right – with expert and personalised guidance on nutrition and as well as essential lifestyle changes that will help improve the quality of care and recovery outcomes.

In 2018, CARER started as an integrative platform to provide all the resources one might need to manage cancer effectively. Along the way, we came to realise the urgent need for personalised cancer care that is delivered with a human touch.

By 2019, CARER grew to offer its own team of highly skilled cancer nutritionists, yoga practitioners, physiotherapists and mental health counsellors. With their combined expertise and experience, the platform evolved into a structured, scientifically validated program widely supported by oncologists and medical institutions.

Today, CARER is a personalised digital onco-health platform that provides cancer patients with customised nutrition and integrative programs developed by trained oncology experts, adhering to the best clinical practices in the field of oncology. These programs help manage the side effects of cancer, improve response to treatment, adherence, survival, quality of life and reduce healthcare costs. This has allowed us to work closely with cancer groups, oncologists, hospitals and pharmaceutical companies as well.

Our therapies and programs are built from proven studies and real world data that have shown substantial improvements in a patient’s recovery.

“It’s about caring for the person, not the disease.”

OUR PILLARS OF INTEGRATIVE CARE

Conventional treatment methods that are intended to eliminate cancer cells often take away the good with the bad. With proof that cancer is predominantly a lifestyle-related condition, CARER’s cancer nutrition and integrative therapies are aimed at resolving the root cause of the disease through three key areas:

Food is medicine, but the wrong food can impede recovery. CARER’s programs provide you with a customised diet plan and access to a personal Onco Clinical Nutritionist who manages all your nutritional deficiencies, weight and other nutrition concerns to expedite recovery.
