Lung Cancer and Exercise?

"Regular exercise is one of the best things a person can do as a cancer patient or survivor, with studies showing improvements in cardiorespiratory fitness, quality of life, fatigue, and depression. However, very few studies have focused on the feasibility, safety, or efficacy of exercise in lung cancer patients. Is exercise safe for people with lung cancer? Is it beneficial? Is a long-term exercise program feasible? Yes. Yes. And yes, say experts. "

Exercise as part of cancer treatment - Harvard Health Blog

Dr. Prue Cormie states: “If we could turn the benefits of exercise into a pill it would be demanded by patients, prescribed by every cancer specialist and subsidized by government. It would be seen as a major breakthrough in cancer treatment.”

"Exercise should be embedded as part of standard practice in cancer care and viewed as an adjunct therapy that helps counteract the adverse effects of cancer and its treatment.

All members of the multi-disciplinary cancer team should promote physical activity and help their patients adhere to exercise guidelines.

**** Best practice cancer care should include referral to an accredited exercise physiologist and/or physical therapist with experience in cancer care."

Nutrition Recommendations During and After Treatment

Big update! ORW now has a Board Certified Specialist in Oncology Nutrition available for nutrition counseling. As we know, nutrition is a key to good health -- and for those with an illness, good nutrition can be even more important.

For nutrition counseling, it is important to visit a qualified professional. This means a registered dietitian (RD) or a registered dietitian nutritionist (RDN). Ask your health care team to help you find one of these professionals. You can also find a dietitian through the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.

Exercising During Cancer Treatment

As we at Oncology Rehab and Wellness advocate, adding regular exercise to your daily life--even during cancer therapy can have a very positive impact not only on your general health, but also on your tolerance - and response- to treatments. Moderate aerobic exercise, such as riding a stationary bicycle or taking a daily walk, coupled with the use of light weights for strength training, can enhance physical well-being and spur recovery.

https://www.nccn.org/patients/resources/life_with_cancer/exercise.aspx

How Mindfulness Helped Me Cope With Cancer

"I was 34 years old when I was diagnosed with synovial sarcoma and told that I had 6 months to live. That was 7 years ago. I was an executive at a global aeronautics corporation at the time. When I heard I had cancer, a huge rush of emotions overwhelmed and intimidated me. I have a background in crisis management, so I had been trained to deal with stress and develop greater resilience, but I found that I had been confusing “acting tough” with “being mentally strong.” I realized that I needed to learn how to understand, accept, and manage my emotions."
