Dr Mercola

Dr. Mercola
Born and raised in the inner city of Chicago, IL. I had an active childhood, and it was during my school years that I truly took an interest in health and wellness. Attended the University of Illinois at Chicago in the early to mid-seventies and went on to study osteopathic medicine at Midwestern University. Worked as a pharmacy technician at a physician’s office. Since 1968, I was an active runner; I completed the Chicago Marathon in just over three hours, among other accomplishments. In 1985 he started seeing patients at a private wellness clinic in Schaumburg, IL, where I was the sole practitioner. It was filled with routine checkups, school physical exams, and seeing chronically ill patients. I was prescribing medications, but realized that they were not working in many cases. He started exploring the world of natural medicine in the early 1990s. After seeing drastic improvements when my patients modified their diet and became more physically active, I changed the way I practiced medicine. His  ultimate passion and goal is to transform the traditional medical paradigm in the United States and around the globe.
