Dr Joseph Mercola is a fully licensed physician.
First and foremost,he is an osteopathic physician, also known as a DO.
DOs are licensed physicians who, like MDs, can prescribe medication and perform surgery in all 50 states. DOs and MDs have similar training and licensing requirements, beginning with four years of study in the basic and clinical sciences, followed by the successful completion of licensing exams. In addition, DOs bring something special to the practice of medicine.
Osteopathic physicians approach medicine holistically, treating the entire person rather than a collection of symptoms. DOs help patients develop attitudes and lifestyles that don't just fight illness, but help to prevent it as well.
He is also board-certified in family medicine and served as the chairman of the family medicine department at St. Alexius Medical Center for five years. He is trained in both traditional and natural medicine.
Here's why: When I first started this Health and Wellness Website Building with the tutorial help of Site-Build-It: SBI I looked to find affiliates that had the same focus and vision as I did.
I read what people have to offer personally and professionally before I join venture with them (and that goes for all the affiliates you'll get in contact with, all through this website).
Dr Joseph Mercola states that his passion is to transform the traditional medical paradigm in the United States, and that consumes most of his free time after seeing patients. He is passionate about empowering people to take control of their health using solely natural means and that is in accordance with my own purpose as well. I also appreciate the fact that Dr Mercola considers EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique)as one natural means of taking care of one's health. As an example, here's what he is saying about the effectiveness of using EFT for food cravings and weight loss: "If you are seeking sweets or grains because of an emotional challenge, you will want to consider using the simple and effective psychological acupressure technique, EFT, to rapidly help you control your emotional food cravings.
Many people don't understand that emotional well-being is essential to their physical health. In fact, in terms of dieting for weight loss, not addressing emotional issues -- whether small or serious traumas from the past -- is the primary reason that most people who lose weight often fail at keeping the weight off."
His natural health Web site has been the most visited natural health site on the Internet, with over 12 million page views every month. More than 1 million people subscribe to Dr. Joseph Mercola's FREE e-mail newsletter, which has been in circulation since 1998.
