ABOUT DR. MERCOLA: HISTORY
No one becomes a New York Times’ Bestselling author or health expert over night.
Long before Dr. Mercola’s popular blog and online career took off, he was busy working on becoming a first-hand expert in health himself through his own experiences and clinical practice.
Born and raised in inner city Chicago, Dr. Mercola said he took an interest in health and wellness in high-school and college. In his early twenties, he worked as a pharm tech at a physician’s office, as well as a Kidney Bank and Eye Bank to harvest donated eyes to be used for cornea transplant.
He entered DO (osteopathic) school in the early 1980’s and in 1985 opened the doors to his own clinic to begin seeing patients as a sole practitioner. At the time, Dr. Mercola’s practice was far from holistic.
“It was filled with routine checkups, school physical exams, and seeing chronically ill patients. I was prescribing drugs, but realized that they were not working,” he said.
Come the early 90’s, Dr. Mercola began exploring the world of natural medicine, and after seeing drastic improvements when patients modified their diets and became more physically active, he completely changed the way he practiced medicine.
“My passion is to transform the traditional medical paradigm in the United States, and that consumes most of my free time,” Dr. Mercola said, adding, “The existing medical establishment is responsible for killing and permanently injuring millions of Americans.”
