See what a true pioneer in natural healing and wellness has to say about the shortcomings in today's drugs and surgery based medical system. Rather than being focused on what actually works in curing disease and restoring health, it is really geared to long-term dependence and profits for big Pharma.

Joseph Mercola The Daily Bell is pleased to present an interview with Dr. Joseph Mercola (left).
Introduction: Dr. Joseph Mercola is an osteopathic physician, also known as a DO. DOs are licensed physicians who bring something extra to the practice of medicine. Osteopathic physicians practice a "whole person" approach, treating the entire person rather than just symptoms. Focusing on preventive health care, DOs help patients develop attitudes and lifestyles that don't just fight illness, but help prevent it, too. Dr. Mercola 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 runs one of the most popular medical/wellness websites in the world.
A brief synopsis:
Daily Bell: What is your opinion of medicine and healthcare in the West today?Dr. Mercola: Unfortunately, there is an aberrant collusion between many drug and food industry multinational corporations that has the government endorsing strategies that benefit industry and not the people.
For nearly all chronic disease, which comprises the bulk of health challenges, the entire system is carefully orchestrated to deceive and manipulate people into making choices that merely serve to perpetuate their problems rather than treat the cause. This results in enormous profits for the industry.
Daily Bell: Are you afraid that your business and your family might come under attack for your views and success?
Dr. Mercola: It seems fairly inevitable.
