Last week, Ella May Ding, a podcaster and influencer who is best known for her time on Married At First Sight 2022, made some health claims.
The claims were made in an episode of her Sit With Us podcast, which she co-hosts with fellow former MAFS contestant Domenica Calarco. The episode was focused on all things gratitude and mental health. In part of the episode, Ding made claims that positive thinking can "cure" cancer.
"Your mind can kill you. It can make you sick. If you're sick in whatever way it may be, whether it's with illness, if you have cancer, or if you have depression, you can literally make yourself sicker by focusing on how sick you are. You can end up terminally ill," she said.

She then made reference to Dr Joe Dispenza – who is a chiropractor, not an oncologist. He has come under fire before for allegedly marketing his meditations as cures for deadly diseases. He is also not currently practising, and has previously been criticised for publishing medical misinformation.
