Dr. Joseph Mercola

H was born and raised in the inner city of Chicago, IL. It was in his school years that he truly took an interest in health and wellness. In his early twenties, he worked as a pharm tech at a physician’s office.

He first began seeing patients at his private wellness clinic in Schaumburg, IL, in 1985. He was a sole practitioner. It was filled with routine checkups, school physical exams, and seeing chronically ill patients. He was prescribing drugs, but realized that they were not working.

He began exploring the world of natural medicine in the early 1990s. After seeing drastic improvements when his patients modified their diet and became more physically active, he changed the way he practiced medicine.

For 40 years since 1968, he was an active runner; he completed the Chicago Marathon in just over three hours, among other accomplishments.
