  • Nutrition Tip

    Staying hydrated is important during and after treatment. Drinking water can help you feel better, boost energy levels, manage bowel issues like constipation and keep you from feeling run down. However, consuming vegetables with a high water content can also help to keep you hydrated.

    Cucumbers are one example of a vegetable with high water content. Cucumbers also contain Vitamin C and caffeic acid, both of which can help soothe skin.
