Joseph Mercola, DO is the founder of the educational natural health site (mercola.com). His passion is to educate consumers about vital health matters, such as the importance of getting enough vitamin D, the benefits of high-intensity interval training, and why "intermittent fasting" can greatly enhance people's overall health. He started his company, Mercola, in 1997 as a way to spread invaluable health information based on knowledge he had gained from 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, Dr. Mercola treated over 20,000 patients and usually saw quick improvements in their health when they modified their diets and became more physically active, prompting him to follow a preventative approach to medicine.
Dr. Mercola's ultimate passion and goal is to help transform the traditional medical paradigm in the United States and offer practical health solutions, as well as the tools to help every individual improve their health and maintain a healthy lifestyle.
Readers eventually asked how to find the products that met his criteria, so Dr. Mercola decided to develop a line of high-quality, premium products. Ultimately, his goal was to provide people with the tools that could help them maintain good health, so the introduction and sale of premium products became another route to optimal wellness.
In addition, Dr. Mercola decided that a portion of the profits generated from the sale of the products would go towards health activism. He formed a Health Liberty campaign, aligning with a number of highly effective non-profit organizations that are committed to protecting people's health liberties. The organizations are geared towards protecting people's health freedoms and providing them with valuable information to help them take control of their health. He is also the author of several books and can be seen on television shows such as the Dr. Oz Show, CNN, Today Show, ABC's World News Tonight, The Doctors, and many others. He has also been featured in both Time and Forbes magazines, and was voted the 2009 "Ultimate Wellness Game Changer" by the Huffington Post.
