The Caveman Doctor – A lifestyle guide after breast cancer treatment
The Caveman Doctor is Dr Colin Champ MD, a board-certified radiation oncologist and assistant professor at the University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute and University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. He is also board-certified in integrative medicine by the American Board of Integrative and Holistic Medicine.
Colin’s passion for exercise, nutrition, and health started at a young age as a result of his love of sports. This interest grew during his time at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where he studied chemical engineering.
At MIT, he focused on learning the intricacies of health, exercise, and nutrition – an obsession still as strong today.
Equally passionately, he researches cancer treatment, as well as the role and effect diet and nutrition may have in cancer care.
He’s lectured on the topic around the USA and the world and has published 30 peer-reviewed articles.
The connection between the modern diet, obesity, and cancer has been remarkable, and he hopes that work and his website can help its readers fight all three. As a radiation oncologist, he sees a lot of different types of cancer patients, but mostly breast cancer patients.
Specifically to help women recovering from breast cancer (as well as those wanting to reduce their risk) Colin has written a Quick Lifestyle Guide after Treatment for Breast Cancer.
To acknowledge Breast Cancer Awareness Month, it’s my great pleasure to bring Colin’s guide to your attention and to share it here it as a downloadable pdf file.
