My Story

Dr. Mercola

Dr. Joseph Mercola

My ultimate passion and goal is to help transform the traditional medical paradigm in the United States and around the world, and offer practical health solutions, as well as the tools, to help every individual improve their health and maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Through multiple outlets, I educate consumers about vital health matters, such as the importance of getting enough vitamin D, why people should drink plenty of pure, clean, and filtered water, and how “intermittent fasting” can greatly enhance people’s overall health. My website,, is the number one natural health website worldwide.

I started my company, Mercola, in 1997 as a way to spread invaluable health information based on knowledge I gained from my over 20 years of experience as a board certified osteopathic (DO) physician and family doctor. Like an MD, a DO is licensed to prescribe medication and perform surgery in all 50 states. For more than 20 years, I treated over 20,000 patients in my clinic and other locations.

Originally from Chicago, I began exploring natural medicine in the early 1990s. I immediately saw improvements in my patients’ health when they modified their diets and became more physically active – prompting me to follow a preventative approach to medicine.

After some inquiries from readers wanting to know how to find products that met my stringent criteria, I decided to develop a line of high-quality, premium products. In addition, I decided that a portion of the profits generated from the sale of the products would go towards health activism, which is when I formed the Health Liberty campaign, aligning with a number of highly effective non-profit organizations.

I am also a best-selling author and wellness advocate. I am the NY Times best-selling author of “The Great Bird Flu Hoax,” “The No-Grain Diet” and “Effortless Healing.” My other books include "Fat for Fuel," "Ketofast" and "EMF*D,” which have also been hailed as best sellers in the health category.

I also actively appear in the media to promote natural health, and have appeared on The Dr. Oz Show, CNN, Today Show, ABC’s World News Tonight, The Doctors, CBS, ABC, and NBC local news. I have also been featured in both Time and Forbes Magazines, and was voted the “Ultimate Wellness Game Changer” by the Huffington Post.
