Who is Dr. Joseph Mercola?

Dr. Joseph Mercola, 67 years old, is an American osteopathic physician and alternative medicine proponent. He is Fellow of the American College of Nutrition, Philantropist, Natural Health Advocate and best-selling author.

He has written a total of 15 books, three of which have been included in The New York Times Best Sellers list, and over 30 scientific studies and reports published in medical journals and publications. He has been invited to appear on various local and international news programs to share his reliable and cutting-edge insights on various health issues.

In 80’s, he began seeing patients as the sole practitioner at a private wellness clinic in USA. His days were filled with routine checkups, school physical exams and seeing chronically ill patients. But he realized that he was prescribing medications that they were not working in many cases.

Determined to find better answers, he began exploring the world of natural medicine in the early 1990s, and slowly started to integrate healthy diet and exercise into his patients’ lives. After observing that these methods were working, compared to prescribing prescription drugs, he completely switched his focus to preventative care using a holistic approach, and that was the start of it all.

Since 1997, Mercola operates Mercola.com, one of the largest and most popular alternative-health website on the internet, where he markets dietary supplements and medical devices:


Mercola.com provides a harmonious community for educated and open-minded individuals who are seeking to improve and maintain their state of health and determined to change the modern health paradigm.

Mercola is a member of several alternative medicine organizations such as the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons:


Mercola is a critic of vaccines and vaccination policy, claiming that too many vaccines are given too soon during infancy and that he promotes that vaccinations have hidden detriments to human health. He hosts anti-vaccination activists on his website, advocates other measures rather than vaccination in many cases such as using vitamin D rather than a flu shot.

“Doctors don’t want you to know all these magic medicines that I’m telling you about. Doctors don’t want you to know that vaccines can do far more harm than good. “

When pandemic started, he informed about the cabal of elites exploiting the population under the guise of a pandemic, and that government preparedness for pandemics was scaremongering orchestrated by the government and drug companies in order to gain power and make money. He also talked many times about the Dangers of 5G and EMF.

He launched a website called “Stop Covid Cold” offering advices to the public on preventing and treating COVID-19 with alternative remedies.


He declared Coronavirus Vaccines were a medical fraud and said the injections did not prevent infections, provide immunity or stop transmission of the disease. Instead:

“The shots alter your genetic coding, turning you into a viral protein factory that has no off-switch.”

He is the author of the book “The Truth About COVID-19: Exposing The Great Reset, Lockdowns, Vaccine Passports, and the New Normal”:


In this book, Mercola and Cummins argue that the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus was engineered in a laboratory in Wuhan, China, and its escape was capitalized on by every cabal, government, and corporation you can think of to scare people into looking away while they stole most of the world’s financial resources for themselves. None of the diagnostic tests, treatments, or public health measures can be trusted; rather, the disease is mild and protection is afforded to smart people who have no health conditions, eat the right food, and load themselves up with the right supplements.

Mercola produces a weekly podcast to guide his audience on the path to optimal health. He also conducts a series of interviews with renowned doctors and scientists who tell the truth about the pandemic and explain how to take control of our health.


During the pandemic, Mercola, his company, and social media sites were warned by the FDA for falsely advertising the efficacy of high doses of food supplements to mitigate, prevent, treat, diagnose, or cure COVID-19 disease. Then, he was warned by the FDA for selling fake COVID-19 cures.

As well, researchers have now identified Mercola as the “Most influential spreader of coronavirus misinformation online”.
