Melatonin for Cancer from Lifestyle and Supplements | Dr. Demian Dressler Deep Dive

Melatonin is a powerful hormone generated while dogs sleep, in complete darkness. Low levels are associated with cancer. So how do we boost melatonin for cancer?


Our grandmothers used to say “go to bed and stay there,” whenever someone got sick. Medical science is now saying that was better than good advice. It may be the best advice we can take. And it also applies to our dogs, maybe especially our dogs with cancer.

In today’s show, Dr. Dressler talks about melatonin, the powerful hormone that pumps out when we are sleeping in total darkness. A lack of melatonin is associated with cancer development, and it’s really important for cancer treatment.

Dr. Dressler talks about why this hormone is so important and how to boost it in dogs. What do we do when supplement forms cause side effects?

Dr. Demian Dressler is the author of The Dog Cancer Survival Guide: Full Spectrum Treatments to Optimize Your Dog’s Life Quality and Longevity.
