Lost in the dietary cancer maze?
No more guesswork.
A new breed of gene tests can now reveal a patient’s ability to metabolise food and complementary medicines.
The test is ideal for cancer patients wanting to optimise their diet and lifestyle according to their genes.
By analysing certain genetic variations, our preferred laboratory can assess your metabolic profile and provide you with a recommendation of an optimal diet, matched to your genetic make-up. For cancer patients who want to improve their exercise program, by analysing your genes, the test results can recommend types of physical activities that suit you best or what activities to approach with caution.
The test utilises cutting edge Next Generation Sequencing Technology coupled with leading bioinformatics and modern scientific research. The gene test is endorsed by a NATA registered laboratory. We all know that food fuels the body, and exercise helps to keep us healthy and feeling good.

How Frances Benefited from Nutritional Gene testing
Diagnosed with ulcerative colitis in 1994, Frances underwent a series of diagnostics and treatments over 20 years. In 2018 she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer and concurrent endometriosis necessitating major surgery, HIPEC.
Frances’s colon remained intensely inflamed. She consulted with me in 2020 when we began a forensic approach to discover the cause/effect relationship of her ongoing ulcerative colitis. I knew this would value-add to her overall recovery from ovarian cancer.
Complementary medicines saw improvements, but not enough to satisfy either me or Frances as revealed on a PET CT scan. There was also concern for spread of her ovarian cancer. Her diagnosis was clouded by two inflammatory conditions, endometriosis and ulcerative colitis. I recommended a nutritional gene test to determine if there could be a dietary reason for her chronic inflammation/ulcerative colitis.
The Test Result: Frances was Lactose Intolerant with two unfavourable copies of the MCM6 gene which given her long term symptoms, likely indicated a total absence of lactase enzyme.
The solution was not only removing lactose from her diet, but examining her medications containing lactose. As it happened two of her key pharmaceutical treatments contained lactose! One was a treatment for ovarian cancer – the other, surprisingly a long term treatment for her ulcerative colitis.
The solution for her meds – take a lactase enzyme with each dose.
Frances reports that after 20 years, her bowel inflammatory marker (calprotectin) is normal & she is symptom-free.
