At Conners Clinic, we pride ourselves on providing all patients with individualized supplement testing, so that they can move forward with confidence that their specific type of dis-ease is being supported in a manner reflective of their unique physiology.

In addition to patient-specific testing, there are many “general” supplements which are valuable for any cancer patient to take so that all foundational, nutritional needs are being met.

The following products + short descriptions comprise a list of quality supplements that we believe almost any cancer patient should consider incorporating into his or her daily nutritional regimen.

1. Multivitamin Powder

Nutrient-starved patients have difficulty maintaining immune function, recovering from invasive testing and procedures, and maintaining overall strength. Multivitamin supplementation ensures patients receive the full spectrum of their daily nutrient intake.

We recommend a loose, powdered multivitamin containing nutritious blends of vegetables, antioxidant fruits, herbs, probiotics and enzymes.

On The CC Web Store: Greens First Powder

2. Prebiotic Powders and Tight Junction Healers

If the gut lining is damaged, the rest of the body is more susceptible to developing dis-ease. No person, especially one with cancer, has a perfectly healthy gut. Taking measures to rebuild GI function and protect the intestinal tract is paramount to rebuilding and protecting the rest of the body from dis-ease proliferation.

3. Vitamin B’s

Sufficient B vitamins prepare the body to counteract the toxic effects of pesticides, environmental toxins, and stressors. B vitamins are also imperative for healthy red blood cells, energy metabolism, oxygen transport, nerve function, DNA production and much more.

We recommend non-methylated B vitamins for our cancer patients, to prevent genetic triggers which could disrupt the optimal function of tumor suppressor genes.

On The CC Web Store: B-Specific (a B complex), Pro Hydroxo-cobalamin B12 (non-methylated), Adenosyl Cobalamin B12 (non-methylated)

4. Vitamin D

Vitamin D is essential to our bodies. It helps regulate the absorption of calcium and phosphorus in our bones, strengthens the immune system and helps cell communication.

Low levels of the vitamin have been associated with health problems such as increased risk of death from cardiovascular disease (CVD), higher risk of cognitive impairment in later life (Alzheimer’s), increased risk of asthma among children, and cancer.

5. Omega 3’s, 6’s Parent Essential Oils {PEO’s}

Omega 3 and Omega 6 PEO’s are primarily known for their anti-inflammatory effects and reducing the onset of chronic illness. In addition, Omega 6’s have been associated with reduced cancer-related fatigue (CRF) in patients, and Omega 3’s with lowered risk of certain cancers (such as prostate and hepatocellular) as well lowering the mortality rates associated with those cancers.

6. Tumeric

Curcumin is found in turmeric, a yellow-colored spice which has been widely used for centuries not only in cooking but in traditional therapies for various diseases, especially as an anti-inflammatory agent.

Curcumin’s anticancer effect is attributed to its ability to induce normal, programed cell death (apoptosis) in cancer cells without cytotoxic effects on healthy cells.

7. Probiotics

The benefits of probiotics for gut health are widely known. However, many people aren’t aware of the importance of cycling probiotic brands and bacterial strains to introduce the widest array of healthy bacteria into our microbiomes as possible.

We carry numerous brands of probiotics, both shelf-stable varieties (non-refrigerated) and those needing to be kept in a refrigerator. Meaning, whether a cancer patient is staying home or traveling abroad, they’ll have access to high-end probiotics.

On The CC Web Store: ClearPro 100 (shelf-stable), Biome-XYM (shelf-stable), Probiotic Synergy Powder, IB Synergy, Probiotic 225, InterFase Plus Probiotic, Pro Flora Max Plus, Probiophage DF Probiotic, ProbioClear LEAN DF, Granular Theralac, Ther-Biotic Complete, ProbioMed 250, Terraflora, Theralac Broad Spectrum, Strengtia, Sibiotica, TheralacPro, TruBifido

8. Digestive Enzymes

Consuming and digesting food can become a difficult process for cancer patients, especially those with cancers in organs that aid in consumption, digestion, absorption and elimination. Supplementing with HCL and digestive enzymes can improve these difficulties, allowing the patient to continue eating solid foods while also gaining greater nutritional benefit.

On The CC Web Store: HCL-XYM, Digest-XYM, Enzalase

9. Full-Spectrum Mineral Complex

Maintaining a healthy mineral balance is vital for anyone healing from cancer. Aside from a few, specific minerals – listed below – most minerals can be taken in a complex form rather than in individual dosages. The best essential minerals come from the plant foods we eat and not the water we drink.

10. Calcium

Although we do not recommend our cancer patients take a high-dose calcium supplement on its own, we do understand the value calcium plays in bone health and mineral balance. Plant-based calcium is the best option for maximizing the mineral’s absorption in the body, not dairy-based.

11. Selenium

Selenium, in itself, can be a cancer fighter. It also helps offset copper balances, which copper can be a cancer driver.

12. Magnesium

Magnesium is a wonderful mineral supporting healthy cellular function. About 60% of the magnesium in the body is found in bone and is involved in energy production, protein formation, repairing genes, muscular activity, neuro transmission and relaxation. Many cancer patients are also helped by magnesium because it improves issues with chemo or pharmacological-induced constipation.

13. Pain & Inflammation Relief

Battling pain can become one of the greatest threats to cancer patients’ successful healing journey. An additional threat are the horrific side-effects associated with extended prescription opioid and NSAID use. We want our patients to pursue as many natural, pain-reducing routes as possible to help minimize their dependence on intense – and sometimes dangerous – pharmaceutical interventions.

The general recommendations included in this post don’t take into consideration certain allergies/sensitivities or genetic predispositions that patients may present, which is why it’s important to work closely with a practitioner who recognizes patient individuality and tests for supplements accordingly.

Additionally, not every cancer patient needs to be taking all of the listed supplements. This list is not meant to be used as a cancer protocol. these supplements are meant to be used as a reference guide for overall, nutritional support, and we encourage those with cancer to use these resources to their benefit.
