Even with a healthy diet we cannot be certain that we have the correct balance of nutrients. Taking supplements may do more harm than good as, notwithstanding the expense, they may over correct a normal level or give false confidence that they have sufficient or the correct ingredients to correct a deficiency. The most reliable way to ensure you have the correct amounts of vital nutrients in your diet is to measure the body's levels. A measure of these nutrients will empower you with the knowledge to be able to modify your diet, or take specific supplements, which will give you the best possible chance of fighting disease.

The Cancer Risk Nutritional Profile

This test was designed by Professor Robert Thomas, a leading UK Oncologist with a research interest in the field of nutrition, lifestyle and cancer.  In collaboration with a long established nutritional laboratory, it measures 50 essential micro nutrients, ecess or deficiencies of which have been implicated in major disease pathways. It provides a detailed report advising which foods to avoid and which to eat more of in order to restore nutritional harmony. Combining the important tests into one profile makes this the most cost effective way of measuring over fifty micronutrients, including:


How to order this test - What will happen after you order?

Step one; Click on the pay now link, below, to take you to the paypal site so you can securely pay with credit or debit card. You will receive a conformation email once payment has been accepted. 

Step Two; The laboratory will then send you a kit containing tubes for blood samples, packaging and an addressed envelope. (Please stop taking dietary supplements for at least 48 hours before the blood test)

Step three; You then have to go to your local blood taking facility to take the blood sample (usually your GP's practice or a phlebotomy room in your local hospital - some phlebotomy centres may charge a small fee for this).  After labeling the pots, immediately put them into the packaging and envelope provided and post as soon as possible. It would be best to do this earlier in the week so it doesn't reach the lab late on a Friday. You also have the option to visit the lab, in London, itself if you feel this would be easier (address will be enclosed in the literature).

Step four (your report): We will review your individual results, write your report and provide specific dietary and lifestyle advice relevant to your individual results. This may include advising more of some types of foods, less of other foods or, if necessary, taking specific supplements for a designated period of time. This report aims to  empower you with the knowledge to be able to optimise your nutritional balance to give you the best change of preventing or fighting cancer and other chronic diseases.
