Online since 1997, Mercola.com has consistently been one of the world’s most popular health websites and it’s still growing.
Mercola.com is the brainchild of Dr. Joseph Mercola, an osteopathic physician and natural medicine practitioner. Dr. Mercola practiced traditional methods of healing until he realized that people needed to be empowered to take control of their own health.
Mercola then turned to research and learned the art of natural healing. He launched Mercola.com originally to share the knowledge he has gained with colleagues and patients but it has since transformed to become the world’s largest natural health resource.
More than one million subscribers, including some 100,000 health professionals, receive the free Mercola.com Natural Health Newsletter for their regular dose of health stories and updates in the world of medicine. All the information is stored at the Newsletter Archive so subscribers don’t miss anything. On the other hand, the Health Blog is the place to be voice your opinion on the current health issues and trends.
Dr. Mercola has attended to around 20,000 patients in a career spanning two decades, during which he has also been in contact with other medical practitioners. He doesn’t claim to have all the answers – what he offers are the methods that are most effective towards particular health issues.
Mercola’s basic advice for those who want to get healthy and feel better is very simple and is not something new – start eating healthy, minimize stress and live a healthy lifestyle. In order to facilitate this healthy change, Dr. Mercola highly recommends the use of premium all-natural products. He actively researches the products before offering them at Mercola.com, and does not promote any goods in exchange for money or advertisements.
Dr. Mercola has been receiving patients at his own clinic, the Natural Health Center (formerly known as the Optimal Wellness Center ) since 1985. Find out more about his practice at www.mercola.com or contact Dr. Mercola personally at Ask Dr. Mercola.
