Learn how a personalized
nutrition plan from addon can help you!

Your Personal Nutrition Assistant

At addon, we created a software technology that generates an on-demand evidence-based personalized nutrition plan for everyone with a history of cancer or a high risk for cancer. We provide a list of recommended natural foods and supplements with a scientific explanation for the ones to avoid. Your personalized nutrition plan will help with finding the right foods to complement your doctor-prescribed treatment rather than interfere with it. For cancer patients receiving comfort care, a personalized nutrition plan will help answer the question of “What should I eat?”.

Think of addon as your Personal Nutrition Assistant who analyzes hundreds-of-thousands of peer-reviewed medical literature just for you.

What information is needed to get started?

For designing a personalized nutrition plan for patients who are on cancer treatment, at minimum the cancer diagnosis, name(s) of chemotherapy treatments and/or any other prescribed medications list are required for getting started. For further customization, a list of natural supplements or vitamins, known allergies to foods or medicines, age, gender and lifestyle factors will be useful.

For designing a personalized nutrition plan for those who are at genetic risk of cancer, the list of pathogenic mutations detected is required for getting started. The product may be further customized for your age, gender, drinking/smoking habits, height, and weight details.

If you do not have genetic test results, but have a family history of cancer, addon’s personalized nutrition plan can still be provided based on the cancer type and lifestyle factors.

Once I have completed my chemotherapy, will I continue with the same food and supplements or should I get a new personalized nutrition?

The personalized nutrition plan is designed to match your cancer type and chemotherapy treatment. Any change in stage of disease or treatment will require a new addon customization. If there are no changes in these factors, the same nutrition plan can be continued.

Without genetic test results, can I still get a personalized nutrition plan?

Yes, you can still get a personalized nutrition plan without a genetic test. If you do not have genetic test results but have a family history of cancer, addon’s personalized nutrition plan can still be provided based on the cancer type and lifestyle factors.

There are many different genetic testing companies that will assess your genetic risk based on saliva or blood samples. Please consult with your healthcare and insurance providers to get details on the tests that are covered in your plan.
