Mercola Natural Health Articles

You are wise to question who you can trust when it comes to maintaining, enhancing or rebuilding your health.

With all websites, newspapers, magazines and other publications offering health advice, with every new multimillion-dollar TV ad for another proclaimed miracle drug, with any recommendation offered by traditional and natural physicians, it is essential to answer this question above all others: What is their real motivation?

My Mission:

My motivation, whether you are a member of the Mercola.com community or have just heard about me for the first time, is to make you as healthy as you can possibly be. This involves:

  1. Providing the most up-to-date natural health information and resources that will most benefit you.
  2. Exposing corporate, government and mass media hype that diverts you away from what is truly best for your health and often to a path that leads straight into an early grave.

Mercola.com is not, in other words, a tool to get me a bigger house and car, or to run for Senate. I fund this site and, therefore, am not handcuffed to any advertisers, silent partners or corporate parents.

  • Must-read destinations for optimizing your health
    by Dr. Mercola on August 18, 2019 at 05:00

    More than half the U.S. population is struggling with chronic illness,1 and 1 in 5 deaths is obesity related.2 We have overwhelming rates of heart disease, cancer and Alzheimer’s, and future projections only look worse. One of the saddest aspects, though, is that advice given by governmental entities and conventional medicine has utterly failed when it comes to disease prevention. The good news is, it doesn’t have to be this way. Aspects of health are multiple and varied, especially […]

  • A day in the life of Dr. Mercola
    by Dr. Mercola on August 17, 2019 at 05:00

    This week, Mercola.com celebrates its 22nd anniversary. I launched the first, much smaller version of this website in 1997 to share the latest developments in natural health with the world. Thanks to health-conscious readers like you, it’s grown to become a leading source of health news and information.  When I had an active medical practice, I was able to help tens of thousands of patients address their health problems using strategies such as diet, exercise and other […]

  • Try Mercola’s savory top recipes and eat your way to health
    by Dr. Mercola on August 17, 2019 at 05:00

    Nowadays, when you make a determination to eat healthier to maintain or regain your health, or to lose weight and prevent obesity, there are more options at your local supermarket than there were not too many years ago — food that offers essential nutrients rather than adding a toxic burden to your system. Rather than the plethora of margarine brands that once overloaded every dairy case, it’s easier to find pastured, organic raw butter and even ghee, a clarified butter with […]

  • Let’s all be grateful
    by Dr. Mercola on August 15, 2019 at 05:00

    While a healthy lifestyle can include many different things, perhaps one of the most overlooked is purposely adopting an attitude of gratitude. There’s an awful lot of stress and unhappiness in the world, and gratitude is an effective remedy that costs nothing. The World Happiness Report,1 issued annually since 2012, looks at gross domestic product per capita, healthy life expectancy, freedom of choice, social support, generosity and perception of corruption occurring in […]

  • EFT for gratitude
    by Dr. Mercola on August 15, 2019 at 05:00

    Nurturing an attitude of gratitude is a simple way to bring more joy, well-being and even physical health to your life. From being thankful to appreciating kindnesses and recognizing all the good in your life, gratitude is the act of recognizing all that has value in your life (and this has nothing to do with monetary worth). Feelings of gratitude are linked to brain activity in the anterior cingulate cortex and medial prefrontal cortex, brain regions associated with moral cognition, value […]

  • Jeff Bezos’ Washington Post hit piece on Mercola.com
    by Dr. Mercola on August 14, 2019 at 05:00

    August 9, 2019, I was contacted by Washington Post reporter Lena H. Sun. She requested an interview, which I had to decline due to travel and speaking engagements. Instead, I asked her to send me the questions, so I could respond in writing. Considering the biased and clearly industry-favorable reporting done by Sun and The Washington Post on previous occasions, I would not be surprised if my answers are twisted or misinterpreted to support an industry narrative, so I’ve […]

  • Our health partners team up to protect your health
    by Dr. Mercola on August 14, 2019 at 05:00

    In the business world, partnerships may well be the cornerstone or foundation of success. The old saying, “two heads are better than one,” means two people may creatively solve a problem more quickly than just one. However, in business, bringing together two organizations in a unique partnership also enables both businesses to benefit from the strengths they each possess. Strategic partnerships give businesses access to greater resources and a larger audience. They also help strengthen […]

  • How to continue to receive your Mercola subscription
    by Dr. Mercola on August 13, 2019 at 05:00

    I’ve announced that I’m leaving Facebook, even though I have 1.8 million people who have been depending on this avenue to learn about the latest health news and information straight from me. The threats to security and privacy have simply become too great, and there are other, better ways to continue receiving the health information you crave, including my free email newsletter. However, it’s important to be aware that many natural health sites are being banned from […]

  • Mercola.com leaves Facebook today
    by Dr. Mercola on August 13, 2019 at 05:00

    As you probably know, Facebook has promised to combat “fake news” on its platform, but its censorship doesn’t end at blatantly fake news articles — far from it. Information that is unfavorable to Facebook (or its advertisers) keeps getting censored out as well. One example was the censoring of U.S. presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass. Warren is an outspoken proponent of breaking up monopolies such as Amazon, Facebook and Google, and has vowed to introduce […]

  • Vitiligo: An introduction
    by Dr. Mercola on August 11, 2019 at 05:00

    Vitiligo is a skin condition that has been around for centuries and has been documented in various historical accounts. The clear cause for vitiligo has not yet been pinpointed because of varying external factors connected to its development. However, it is now being listed as an autoimmune disease where the immune system attacks and kills off the cells that are responsible for the production of melanin.1 Some of the earliest documents describing this condition go as far back as 3,000 […]

  • The longevity paradox: How to die young at a ripe old age
    by Dr. Mercola on August 11, 2019 at 05:00

    In this interview, Dr. Steven Gundry, medical director for International Heart & Lung Institute and director for Center for Restorative Medicine, reviews some of the concepts covered in his book “The Longevity Paradox: How to Die Young at a Ripe Old Age.” While trained as a cardiothoracic surgeon, Gundry now specializes in treating patients holistically, focusing on food. I’ve previously interviewed him about plant lectins — the topic of his book […]
