Dr. Joseph Mercola: Your Trusted Source of Health Advice and Information
Truth, according to German philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer, undergoes three phases:
- First it is ridiculed
- Then it is violently opposed, and
- Then it is widely accepted as self-evident
Natural health expert Dr. Joseph Mercola, founder of Mercola.com, believes that we are still in the first two stages when it comes to many health truths. Dr. Mercola, who is board-certified in family medicine, has had his fair share of ridicule — even being labeled a “quack” — for telling people that there are simple, inexpensive, and practical natural alternatives to current medical methods.
In Defense of the Truth and Health Freedom
Whatever people may call him, Dr. Mercola views himself simply as a doctor who stands up for the truth — whether or not the truth is aligned with popular opinion or bound to disturb the conventional medical establishment.
Big pharmaceutical companies don’t want you to find out that simple and inexpensive lifestyle changes can steer you away from costly and dangerous drugs, as well as surgeries and treatments. These are the same companies that heavily influence a fatally flawed medical system – a system that is killing hundreds of thousands of people yearly in the U.S. alone and causing needless pain and suffering in millions.
Dr. Mercola is committed to providing you with the latest information and scientific studies that expose this fraud and empower you to take control of your health.
This blog presents medical and health-related articles that help you sort out the truth for yourself. The featured information here is meant to inspire and empower people to lead healthy lifestyles one step at a time, which has always been the crux of Dr. Mercola’s teachings.
