Our mission here at Mercola.com is to transform the traditional medical paradigm in the United States into one in which the root cause of disease, rather than the symptoms, is treated.
Health freedom is one of the things we pursue through this site, mainly through our partnerships with different organizations working in issues such as labeling genetically engineered foods, removing fluoride in drinking water, abolishing mercury dental fillings, and promoting informed vaccine choices and consent.
Billions of dollars have been spent by this current system to "treat" the sick, but Americans are sicker than ever. The root cause of most chronic disease can be improved by making necessary dietary and lifestyle changes.
Here at Mercola.com, we believe in your body's unique ability to heal itself and maintain wellness. We provide the most up to date health news and information, free and available to help you take control of your health and live a long, healthy life, free from disease.

Dr. Mercola's Profile and Images
About Dr. Mercola
Dr. Mercola finished his family practice residency in 1985 but was trained by the conventional model. In his first years of private practice, he treated many symptoms with prescription drugs and was actually a paid speaker for the drug companies.
But as he began to experience the failures of this model in his practice, he embraced natural medicine and has had an opportunity over the last thirty years to apply these time tested approaches successfully with thousands of patients in his clinic.
Over 15 years ago he founded Mercola.com to share his experiences with others. The site is the most visited natural health site in the world for the last seven years with nearly two million subscribers. He's also written two NY Times bestselling books, and has had frequent appearances on national media including the Dr. Oz show and major news channels.
