Dr. Mercola is an osteopathic physician who began exploring the world of natural medicine in the early 1990s after spending several years working within the conventional medicine model. His whole-person approach to health and his focus on preventive care led him to pioneer health information on the Internet where www.mercola.com has been consistently rated a top natural health website since launching 22 years ago.
He’s also a prolific author of more than a dozen books, three of which are New York Times bestsellers. He newest book is titled: “KETOFAST: Rejuvenate Your Health with a Step-by-Step Guide to Timing Your Ketogenic Meals.” He’s also authored numerous medical articles and is frequently featured on national media outlets.
Dr. Mercola has been interviewed before on Bulletproof Radio and contributed to Bulletproof articles. Check out the show notes below for those links.
