WHAT IF EVERYTHING YOU THINK YOU KNOW ABOUT HEALTH AND NUTRITION IS FATALLY FLAWED?
In this revolutionary online course—the first of its kind—New York Times best-selling author and leading natural-health practitioner Dr. Joseph Mercola reveals the startling truth about diet, disease, and dysfunction that will revolutionize your understanding of health.
But what if all this information is utterly, terribly wrong?
For over a century, we’ve accepted the scientific consensus that cancer is a genetic disease… that we have little to no control over conditions like heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s…that our body weight is simply a measure of calories in and calories out…and that the low-fat, high-carb diet that’s been popularized by the mass media is optimal for our health.
“This is the most powerful metabolic intervention I’ve ever encountered in my clinical practice.”
- Dr. Joseph Mercola
Virtually every chronic disease we know is related to mitochondrial health.
Mitochondria—the tiny energy factories within your cells—are the key to optimal health and healing. They generate the energy you need to stay alive and well. When they are damaged or dysfunctional, not only is it impossible to stay healthy but you are vulnerable to virtually all degenerative diseases such as cancer, heart disease, diabetes, and neurodegenerative decay.
And the sad news is, given the diet and nutrition misinformation that’s been touted for decades, not to mention the rampant health conditions many people are fighting daily, none of us has escaped mitochondrial damage.
But you can take control of your health! You simply need to give your body the proper fuel—and it’s not what you’ve been led to believe. A ketogenic diet, which is very low in carbohydrates and high in healthy fats, is the key to suppressing disease and supporting healing. And the benefits are astonishing—not only in treating or preventing serious illness, but in boosting your brainpower, increasing your energy, reducing inflammation, and helping you lose weight and keep it off.
This groundbreaking course, which merges decades of Dr. Mercola’s research with the latest findings in the science of mitochondrial health, will give you the cutting-edge keys to a lifetime of vibrant health. Dr. Mercola will lead you on a clear, practical, engaging journey so you can first understand how your body works at a molecular level. Then he and nutritionist Miriam Kalamian will share startling science, tell you what foods to eat, give you practical strategies to follow, and show you how to monitor your progress to help your mitochondria thrive—a program he calls Mitochondrial Metabolic Therapy (MMT).
MMT is a system of eating that will allow your body to burn fat, instead of glucose, as its primary fuel source. Because fat is a much cleaner burning fuel, this shift helps optimize your mitochondrial function and protects you from cellular damage that could lead to disease.
“You can take control of your health by giving your body the proper fuel.”
- Dr. Joseph Mercola
It’s impossible to live a long, healthy life without healthy mitochondria—and you can turn that around and turn on your body’s innate ability to prevent and heal from disease by the food choices you make every day.
If you want to have more energy; achieve your ideal body weight without feeling deprived; help ward off cancer, heart disease, Alzheimer’s, and other degenerative diseases; and live a long and healthy life, you don’t have to wait. You can begin to improve your health and prevent needless pain and suffering by applying the information in this course today!
Don’t wait decades for metabolic mitochondrial therapy
to make its way into the mainstream.
You can build a healthier body and brain starting right now.
What You'll Learn
Lesson 1: Introduction: Burning Fat for Fuel
The food you eat is the fuel for your body—and it can tip the scale between disease and health. In this foundational lesson Dr. Mercola teaches you how to start optimizing your health by burning fat instead of glucose as your primary fuel and shares the practical information you need to begin today. You’ll learn what Mitochondrial Metabolic Therapy (MMT) can do for you and your loved ones and discover the real cause behind the epidemic of disease. Dr. Mercola also shares the most healthful and healing foods you’ll want to include in your diet—and the most toxic foods to avoid.
Lesson 2: The Science of MMT
At the core of this health plan are mitochondria, and in this lesson you’ll learn the science behind Mitochondrial Metabolic Therapy so you can more deeply understand it and reap the benefits. You’ll discover exactly what mitochondria are, why virtually every chronic disease we know is related to mitochondrial health, and what actually causes most mitochondrial dysfunction. Dr. Mercola also explains what you can expect as your body shifts to burning fat and shares why fasting is a powerfully beneficial tool that can complement this program.
Lesson 3: Metabolic Magic: Starting Your MMT Plan
“Metabolic magic” is what occurs in your body once you transition to an MMT health plan. In this lesson you’ll be taught how to tailor the program to your unique physiology with detailed guidelines for starting a ketogenic eating plan. You’ll learn everything from the essential kitchen tools you’ll need and how to use them, to how to do a “pantry sweep” and identify foods that can derail your success, to how to set your targets and track your progress. Miriam will also explain the three ways to kickstart nutritional ketosis (your “metabolic magic”), so you can determine which method is best for you.
Lesson 4: Time to Feast: Smoothies, Salads, Meals & More
Here comes the fun part, where you’ll learn all about the scrumptious meals you can make! In this lesson Dr. Mercola helps you identify the foods you’ll choose to eat and gives you practical, real-world answers to common questions on this plan. He shows you how to make his signature superfood smoothie and delectable daily salad, and Miriam shares her simple meal template that covers satiating breakfast, lunch, and dinner choices and decadent snack options. You’ll learn how to sidestep challenges like food allergies and intolerances and also be treated to two special bonus videos.
Lesson 5: Going In-Depth: A Lifelong Health Plan
This lesson dives deep into the nuances of the MMT health plan in a one-on-one conversation between Dr. Mercola and Miriam Kalamian, one of the world’s leading clinicians and educators on ketogenic therapy. You’ll hear how MMT played a critical role in Miriam’s son’s cancer treatment and learn why the nutritional information commonly taught in schools is terribly flawed. Dr. Mercola and Miriam also discuss how to be “keto-adaptive” in social situations like dining out, parties, and vacations, how to ensure you won’t experience hunger or cravings, and how to make MMT a lifelong health plan.
Lesson 6: The Importance of Light
In addition to food, light is the most critical physical component to optimizing your health. Without understanding its importance, you might compromise your opportunity to improve your well-being. In this lesson, you’ll learn how to reap the benefits of sunlight to improve your mitochondrial metabolic health. Dr. Mercola discusses the truth about sunscreen and vitamin D supplements that might surprise you, the health dangers of florescent and LED lights, and how to protect yourself.
Lesson 7: Designed to Move: All about Exercise
Exercise is a powerful strategy to complement food and light therapies and improve your mitochondrial function, and no strong health plan is complete without it. In this final lesson, you’ll learn how to integrate fitness into your MMT plan, even with a busy schedule. Dr. Mercola reveals the biggest mistakes people make about exercising and tells you what traps to avoid, and he demonstrates two simple exercise sequences that are some of the most innovative (and quick!) workouts you can do to improve your health, among other biohacks to boost your metabolic health.
