Doctor Oz had Joseph Mercola, author of The No-Grain Diet, on his show to teach us about the field of alternative health. Joseph Mercola’s website gets 12 million hits per month and he is a board certified osteopath. Joseph has been telling Americans about the importance of Vitamin D and the danger of high fructose corn syrup for a long time… Dr. Oz says that Mercola has always been a bit ahead of the curve, even though Dr. oz does not necessarily agree with everything Mercola believes.
Joseph Mercola said that part of our problem with medicine in America stems from all of the corporate interests in our health field. For example, the United States is the only country that allows drug companies to advertise their medicine. One of Mercola’s best alternative medicine secrets is to take Krill Oil Softgels. Krill are crustaceans that are tiny and generally eaten by other fish. Krill Oil Softgels should be swallowed (don’t chew them because it doesn’t have a great taste as Dr. Oz pointed out to us). Krill Oil Softgels are much better than regular omega 3 fish oil capsules because Krill Oil Softgels are lower in mercury, your body can abosrb Krill Oil Softgels better and it will make you burp less than fish oil. Kathy Freston said that a vegetarian option would be walnuts or flaxseed oil, but Mercola argues that there are certain components in animal based omega 3’s that you don’t get in vegetarian alternatives.
