(Subscribe on iTunesStitcher or TuneIn)

The ‘C’ word… Yep, I said it. It’s such a hugely controversial topic with cancer rates climbing scarily fast year after year, and predicted to become the #1 disease in the USA by 2020. Enter superstar guest Dr Joseph Mercola who says we can in fact combat cancer with his revolutionary diet. Hallelujah!

If you want to get your health on track and feel more vital than ever before, this is by far one of the most important episodes you will ever listen to. Mercola’s Metabolic Mitochondrial Therapy (MMT), promises to combat cancer, boost brain power and increase your energy… sounds good to me! And while it may have a fancy name, it’s a really simple approach to health and longevity which I can’t wait to share with you.

Mercola has been a physician for 25 years and seen over 25,000 patients. He Founded Mercola.com 20 years ago which has been the most visited natural health website in the world for the last 13 years with over 30 million views every month. Holy guacamole! Gimme a slice of that keto pie Doc!

He has written 4 New York Times best selling books, plus his latest which is Fat for Fuel: A Revolutionary Diet to Combat Cancer, Boost Brain Power, and Increase Your Energy is out right now.

  5. Zara says:

    Love this podcast Melissa! You said to comment on here on who to interview next. I think that Andy Puddicombe, the creator of the Headspace meditation app would be great to interview! He seems like a lovely guy and his approach to meditation is amazing and I love the app!

  6. Amanda Waters says:

    Thank you so much for this one. I have listened to, love and learn so much from all your episodes. I love Dr Mercola and this podcast was everything I had hoped for and more. I learned a lot particularly about EMF. Thank you again for creating these amazing episodes for us and sharing your knowledge with us.

  7. Gemma Tapp says:

    LOVED this one!
    Such a good reminder to nourish our body and tune in for optimal health.
    Looking forward to minimising EMF exposure, and another book to keep me learning and growing and reinforcing the information!

  8. Gayna says:

    another fantastic podcast Melissa. There is not alot of information out there about the ketogenic diet so it’s good to hear from the best about how this is beneficial for optimum health. My naturopath told me to go on this diet 5 years ago, and its only really taking just being talked about here in Australia now. thankyou again for offering such amazing knowledge and information. The grace in which you deliver these podcasts is incredible. I am totally hooked, and hanging out for the next one. thankyou so much. Your are awesome.

  9. Shanna says:

    Hi Melissa! First of all, I am obsessed with all of your guests and Podcasts. The variety and way in which you conduct interviews is amazing. Quick question, you have had Dr. Mercola and Dave Asprey on your show now, both with similar nutritional recommendations. Do you and your husband follow Dave’s Bulletproof diet or Dr. Mercola’s specifications in Fat for Fuel? Just curious what has worked for you all!

    • So glad you love the show Shanna and thanks for listening. I kind of follow those ways but make it The Melissa Ambrosini version. That means I tune into my body. I always listen to my body and follow suit. I believe that’s key as we are all so unique and different. Does that make sense?

      • Shanna says:

        Yes, it makes sense. Being an IIN student myself, I know everyBODY is unique 🙂 Thank you for your reply and thank you for what you do!

  10. Claus Birger Henriksen says:

    Dr- Mercola forgot to mention, that he try to be grounded 95% of the day. This is according to the upcoming documentary ‘Down to Earth’. The trailer is online today.

  11. Lucy says:

    Oh my goodness…life changing! I had no idea how dangerous having my phone on all the time was! LOVED that he didn’t rag on veg diets as well. Such a beautiful, knowledge filled podcast! My favourite yet! Thanks Mel! Can’t wait to read his book.

  12. lola says:

    hi mel just listened to this podcast and thought it was very informative .
    At the end there was mention about diet for disease , is this a book ? i am not sure as it wasn’t listed in the show notes .
    Please let me know what you were talking about
    thank you

  13. Kathryn says:


    Great interview, so many gems from Dr Mercola! Melissa you mentioned that you wake up with a sunlamp rather than an alarm clock.
    I would assume that the brand you use has no EMF?
    Would you be able to share which brand you use, I am very interested in purchasing one.

  14. Emily says:

    Something is plaguing me. My naturopath tells me to follow the Blood Type diet. My blood type is blood type 0, so meat is important but coconut milk/cream/oil is considered an AVOID option. This is very disappointing for me because I love Bulletproof coffee and and snacking on coconut yoghurt and fat bombs. How does the blood type diet fit in with MMT? If you can answer this I would hugely grateful.
