The Cancer Risk Nutritional Profile

This blood test and advisory service and was designed by the cancernet team in partnership with the UK's leading Nutritional laboratory.  It measures the body's most important essential micronutrients using the latest laboratory techniques.  

The rationale for the test originated from the strong evidence that a deficiency or an excess of micronutrients such as vitamins, antioxidant enzymes, essential minerals and fatty acids can lead to an imbalance in the immunity and an increase risk of cancer and other chronic illnesses. A knowledge of your body's nutrient levels together with the specific advise, provided in the report, will empower you to modify your diet, or take specific supplements, to restore nutritional harmony.....Read more

NatureMedical holistic lip balm 

 What is natureMedical skin balm? A unique combination of natural waxes  selected to moisturise, soothe and protect the lips especially during the strain of chemotherapy. The added essential herbal oils have been carefully selected for their ant-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties. The ingredients are completely natural and organic.

Indications: Treating and preventing chapped lips. Also can be used for softening and moisturizing the nail beds. Soothing stubborn patches of very dry flaky skin. Can be used during chemotherapy or after exposure to wind and sun such as skiing or sailing.

Development and design:  This completely natural oil has been designed and manufactured in the UK by a team of Oncologist, patients, UK natural cosmetics chemist and traditional therapists to find the perfect combination of natural waxes and oils to have the maximum softening and moisturizing anti-inflammatory and DNA stabilizing benefits.  

Instead of petrol and other hydrocarbons, as used by the vast majority of commercial hand creams, the waxes and oil base are made entirely from organic natural oils derived from plants. Furthermore, only the absolute top quality ingredients have been used. For example, instead of simple olive oil it uses organic, extra virgin, cold pressed olive oil. Instead of regular shea butter is uses the vastly more expensive unrefined raw, organic variety. 

The type and concentration of rare essential oils have been carefully selected for their  anti-inflammatory (natural salicylate)  as well anti-microbial properties which preserve the oil and help prevent secondary infection on the lips. Other oils attempting this effect tend to use tea tree oil but this tends to be irritating to the skin and can cause further drying. Instead natureMedical uses Leleschwa oil which is less drying yet a much stronger antiseptic

It was tested only on healthy volunteers and has passed all European Unit cosmetics standards and safety checks (see full product license). EU compliant 76/768/EEC

As a result of these high quality ingredients there is a high manufacturing cost (that is why you will not see this on the shelves). However, by cutting out marketing and shop mark ups by ordering direct from the manufacturers online, the price to the consumer is kept as low as possible.

natureMedical Nail bed Balm:

 

The design  We worked on the assumption that oils being applied to a sensitive part of the body such as the nail beds which has rapidly dividing cells should be as pure and natural as  possible and have absolutely no man made chemicals such as perfumes, parabens, or colours. We then medicated the balm with rare essential oils selected for their natural antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties. Unlike, other products claiming to be natural we only used the highest grade ingredients - for example organic unrefined shea butter as opposed to simple shea butter thirty times the value, extra virgin cold pressed organic olive oil instead etc.

 

Uses: A high quality all-purpose nail bed cream but also particularly good for dry or sensitive areas such as and around the eyes or between the fingers.

Chemotherapy and Radiotherapy

Patients who had completed a course of treatment have teamed up with the medical profession  and TV personalities to produce this 21 minute DVD program. Sue Lawley introduces the film and Anton Rodgers explains the details of chemotherapy and radiotherapy while watching patients actually going through the various stages of treatment. The sections on radiotherapy or chemotherapy both are clearly demarcated within which patients describe their own experiences, side effects and methods to alleviate them. This is the only cancer information film which has been scientifically evaluated and is now widely used in the UK, Australia and Italy.
