Dr. Mercola's Natural Health Center
Dr. Mercola has dedicated his life to helping people take control of their health.
He first began seeing patients at his private wellness clinic in Schaumburg, IL in 1985, as a sole practitioner.
The early years were filled with routine checkups, school physicals, coughs, colds, sore throats and back pain. Many sick patients left the office with a prescription in hopes of resolving their health issues.
But time and again traditional medicine failed. Patients arrived at his clinic after seeing specialists for years, spending thousands of dollars, only to experience a continual decline in their health.
Dr. Mercola began exploring the world of natural medicine after a few years in his clinic. After seeing drastic improvements when his patients modified their diet and became more physically active, he changed the way he practiced medicine.
With an insatiable desire to expand his knowledge and continue learning, he devoured medical journals daily, remaining on the cutting edge of the latest research and development.
He had great success helping many patients with conditions such as: rheumatoid arthritis, chronic fatigue syndrome, and fibromyalgia. He used dietary and lifestyle solutions to address the root cause of illness. He also treated many children with allergies, autism, and ADD. The focus was also on dietary changes he'd discovered to help elicit positive behavioral changes.
During this time, Dr. Mercola also discovered Dr. Doris Rapp's method of allergy testing and treatment using provocation neutralization (PN) therapy. This treatment was so effective that his allergy therapists had a waiting list of several months.
The clinic offered overall chiropractic care, nutritional counseling and emotional therapy that helped patients discover and address the root cause of illness.
In 1997, the Internet was in its infancy, and Dr. Mercola had a vision to reach far more people around the world through the World Wide Web. That's when www.Mercola.com was founded.
Between 1985 and 2013, Dr. Mercola has treated more than 20,000 patients at his clinic.
Online, he has helped millions learn how to become healthier, more fit, and take control of their health through the valuable information provided in his free e-newsletter.
In order to devote his full time and attention to research, education and increasing public awareness, Dr. Mercola has closed the clinic to dedicate himself completely to these critical issues.
