I am a medical oncologist in a private practice in Gainesville, FL. I have had the opportunity to use ONESource in several of my patients receiving treatment for cancer who are debilitated from their disease and treatment side effects.
In my anecdotal experience, based on my patients' experiences, this is a very palatable drink which seems to subjectively improve one's sense of well being and energy level. It is tasty, easy to store (does not require refrigeration) and packaged in convenient reasonable sized servings. I do believe that my patients who were taking daily servings of ONESource seemed to tolerate their chemotherapy treatments reasonably well and maintained their nutritional status better overall. ON an average, they recovered sooner from the effects of treatment.
I am a radiation oncologist in Gainesville, FL who has been recommending ONESource to my patients for the last 2 years. On a trial basis, I found my patients enjoyed the flavor and were able to sustain their weight with their cancer treatments. It is nutritionally compatible to other supplement drinks on the market and I found my patients prefer it to other supplements and certainly recommended without hesitation.
On March 30, 2010, doctors at Community Cancer Center diagnosed my husband, Sam, with Stage 4 lung cancer. It had spread extensively throughout his body; liver, spine and bones. The prognosis was 3-4 months, without treatment. Gentle chemo and palliative radiation offering freedom from pain, greater comfort and quality-of-life was our choice.
Sam lost about 60 pounds very rapidly and was unable to eat solid food. Then, by the grace of God, we were introduced to ONESource Nutrition drink. It quickly became his primary source of all the nutrients and amino acids needed fro repair of tissues, muscles and bones. ONESource Nutrition was easily digested and enjoyable to drink. We added ice cream, making it a delicious milkshake treat.
Within 3 weeks we were seeing benefits of energy and strength, plus Sam had gained 4 pounds back! We are now looking forward to another PET scan, as we feel sure the ONESource Nutrition drink has helped him tremendously durning the chemo treatments. The ONESource Nutrition's high protein/high calcium content continues to help his blood labs improve, too.
We are very grateful to God, his doctor's care plan, and to ONESource Nutrition, that gives us confidence we are fulfilling our loved ones' most important nutritional needs at this critical time.
I have a brother who has been suffering from hepatitis C for many years. The disease is a debilitating one with more bad days than good. Even after extensive treatments with side effects, he has many days when he cannot eat solid foods. I've worried so about his strength and weight as he dwindled away.
Lucky for my brother, I found ONESource. He immediately liked the flavor and convenience. After 4-6 months on the drink (1 to 2 a day, with or without food) he has gained 10 pounds. Many of his bad days are now better. There is no cure for the disease, however, ONESource helps him put up a good fight. Thank you so much!
Durning my chemotherapy treatment, I have been drinking ONESource. I have been able to tolerate it well. It has helped me when I have been nauseated. It tends to settle my nausea. I have had few problems with my chemo treatments and recovered from my surgery quickly. My incision healed without problems and the muscles seemed to get back to normal quickly. Cannot say if the ONESource helped me to heal faster but that was the only thing that I did other than the normal course of treatment.
