MC is a 41 YO female recently diagnosed with Stage II Hodgkin’s Lymphoma (HL). She will soon begin ABVD chemotherapy and was concerned about residual heart damage from the treatment. Additionally, she wanted to know if there were any specific foods that she should focus on to help her fight her kind of cancer. While HL is much rarer than Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, a thorough review of the literature presented many new studies on specific nutritional components and dietary patterns that were linked to HL. In addition to providing MC with a cell and genetic mutation-specific dietary plan and meal template, along with the supplements she has been taking, the following supplements and recommendations were added to round out her healing program.
