Dr.Joseph Mercola is an osteopathic physician and surgeon who is board-certified by the American College Osteopathic General Practitioners in family medicine. He has frequently been interviewed on local and national news including the Dr. Oz television show. He owns the number one natural health web site and has over a million people on his newsletter list . . . and I am one of them.
In November 2009, he was named the top “Ultimate Wellness Game Changer” by the Huffington Post, an honor that celebrates “100 innovators, visionaries, and leaders in 10 categories who are harnessing the power of new media to reshape their fields and change the world.”
Dr. Mercola’s main goal and motivation is to help you become as healthy as possible. This involves providing the most up-to-date natural health information and resources that will benefit each person. Secondly, exposing corporate, government and mass media hype that diverts you away from what is best for your health and leads down a path into an early grave.
As an Osteopathic physician (DO), he practices a “whole person” approach, treating the entire person rather than just symptoms. Focusing on preventive health care, as an DO, he help patients develop attitudes and lifestyles that don’t just fight illness, but help prevent it, too.
