Short biography
For over 20 years, osteopathic physician (DO) Dr. Joseph Mercola has treated thousands of patients using a “whole person” approach that focuses on preventive care. He founded The Natural Health Center, which focused on whole-body approaches to medicine, and treated thousands of patients.

In his first years of private practice, he treated many symptoms by using prescription drugs and was a paid speaker of drug companies. He later on realized the flaws of the conventional system and switched to holistic approaches.

Dr. Mercola is motivated to provide natural health information and resources that will help you take control of your health. In 1997, he founded Mercola.com, one of the world’s leading online resources of natural health information. At present, Mercola.com has over a million subscribers.
Through his website, he provides practical and holistic health solutions, as well as news and updates that expose the failures of conventional medicine.

Dr. Mercola has written two New York Times bestsellers, The No-Grain Diet and The Great Bird Flu Hoax. He has also been featured in major media sources like TIME magazine, LA Times, CNN, and Fox News.

In November 2009, he was given the title “Top Ultimate Wellness Game Changer” by Huffington Post. This honor pays tribute to 100 innovators, visionaries, and leaders who make a difference in the world by using the power of new media.
