Melina Roberts, N.D., has developed a revolutionary program that introduces infants and toddlers to food that helps them develop their bodies and health. Many parents feed their children as if they're adults, without ever thinking that perhaps they should not be eating like a fully-grown adult. The truth is, however, that organs and body systems mature at different times, which means nutrition needs at different ages vary.

Episode Highlights with Dr. Melina Roberts

  • Melina Roberts: Founder of Advanced Naturopathic Centre Calgary

    • Author Building a Healthy Child

    • TED X Speaker 2021

    • Sick as a child Allergies and Asthma – went to a Naturopathic Doctor recognized the ability of the body to heal itself

    • Became the inspiration to become a doctor

    • While at Naturopathic College father diagnosed with pancreatic cancer (passed away 9 months later)

      • Inspiration to want to treat cancer                                                                                                            

    • Clinic in Toronto with great record in helping people success due to his training at Paracelsus

      • Inspired Melina to do the same and became a Naturopathic Doctor using biological medicine

    • Focuses on the terrain (the areas the cells live in) When a plant is not healthy, we focus on the soil or water, we do not try and manipulate the plant.

    • Also focuses on the regulatory processes of the body and removes what is blocking normal regulation

Tools used for Assessment

  • Darkfield Microscopy looks at cells under a microscope and gives insight into the internal terrain

  • The blood is viewed under a microscope and is not altered, blood cells are magnified.

  • Heart Rate Variability – assesses the autonomic nervous system sympathetic (stress state) and parasympathetic- (rest and digest)

    • The body cannot heal in a stressed state

  • Thermography 119 points are checked through temperature and gives insight on how the organs are regulating


  • Hyperthermia – local and full body hyperthermia

    • Creates a fever state not conducive for infections or unhealthy cells to survive 38.5 degrees Celsius

    • Patients monitored throughout with rectal thermometer usually takes 30-40 minutes to get to a proper heat. And another 30-60 minutes for the therapeutic state. Can be used on all cancers.

      • Patients encouraged to make decisions regarding treatments. They will respond from fear instead of knowledge.

    • Can be used in conjunction with other therapies such as local hyperthermia, vitamin C infusions, etc.

    • Sauna can be used in a remission phase or for detox

    • Can be used safely with proper monitoring

      • Many patients will complain with a cancer diagnosis that they very rarely get sick or have fever. It is not healthy to not have a fever. It is also healthy when we or our children do have fevers.

      • Suppressing fevers, works against the natural mechanism to make our environment unfavorable to pathogens

  • Mistletoe- an herbal extract shown to boost the immune system against cancer cells. Different types target different cancers. 

  • High dose Vitamin C- At a low dose it is an antioxidant, at a high dose it is a pro-oxidant. It can then go into the cell and turn into H2O2 and then help break down cancer cells. Changes environment to become more alkaline, reduces toxic load, and improves immune system, (~50gm's) *Have a G6PD run prior to Vitamin C therapy)

  • Oxygen therapies - Ozone and UBI (ultraviolet blood irradiation) paired together. Cancer cells don't like oxygen. 

    • Our medical model operates on fear, yet there are effective, powerful, options.

    • Organs of detoxification are open and moving regardless of what route is chosen, otherwise the patient will become sicker. (called the emunctories)

      • The primary ones are the liver, gallbladder, kidneys, and the lymphatic. Secondary are skin, and lungs. Referred to as drainage to move toxic loads outside the cell. 

  • Diet is the starting point and primary to healing the body and balancing the microbiome. 

    • Have fresh squeezed lemon for the liver​

    • Clean water for the kidneys

  • Rebounding or cold showers help assist the lymphatic system

  • Patients to have self-responsibility to create their own healing
