Mercola was honored in 2007 by renowned economist and entrepreneur Paul Zane Pilzer as one of 15 "wellness revolutionaries," a group of individuals who've made their mark on the health and wellness industry, joining names such as fitness queen Jill Kinney and Carl Rehnborg, the inventor of the multivitamin.
Dr. Mercola was included in Pilzer's list due to the success of Mercola.com, one of the world's most popular natural health websites. Mercola.com went online in 1997 and what started originally as a tool used by Mercola to share information with patients and other health professionals has emerged as a total health resource.
But more than Pilzer's recognition, Dr. Mercola is a revolutionary because he goes beyond the scope of traditional medicine to seek out and provide the health knowledge and resources that will most benefit you, minus the hype and bias.
Dr. Mercola also isn't afraid to tackle controversial health issues and topics, as he has shown in his New York Times bestsellers, The No-Grain Diet and The Great Bird Flu Hoax. After all, he founded Mercola.com not to win popularity contests but to help Americans win back their health.
Mercola is an alumnus of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and of the Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine. After several years of medical practice using traditional methods, Mercola turned to studying the art of natural healing He maintains his own clinic, the Natural Health Center (originally called the Optimal Wellness Center), where the physical, emotional and spiritual health of patients is his utmost priority.
He envisions a future where people will no longer make frequent visits to hospitals and clinics and take less drugs and medical procedures because they've regained their health - the natural way.
