7 p.m. | Effortless Healing with Dr. Joseph Mercola

A well-known physician, Dr Mercola’s website is one of the most visited natural-health sites in the world – a site dedicated to educating readers about ways to improve their health.

He is one of the world’s leading advocates for using food as medicine. In this program he helps people struggling with their weight and chronic conditions to make the connection to their food and lifestyle choices.

He’s an educator committed to teaching people how to cultivate their own power to heal. He believes the body is designed to be healthy without drugs, and in giving it what it needs to thrive, so it can regenerate itself without any outside interventions. This innate restorative tendency is what he calls “effortless healing.”

Rather than suggesting people rely on expensive and potentially dangerous drugs Dr. Mercola empowers people to become their own healers and helps viewers understand how they can effortlessly modify their diet to achieve their health goals.

He covers the impact of gluten and sugar on the body, the benefits of intermittent fasting and exercise, and provides Effortless Healing Action plans throughout. He clearly outlines changes viewers can make in their lives, from eliminating certain foods to adding others, and illustrates the changes that could result.

He puts forward principles of healing to arm viewers with information to choose more skillfully what and when to eat, what to drink, how and how often to move, and how to remove the roadblocks to wellness – such as subpar food and contaminated beverages – so that their body can do what it was designed to do effortlessly: stay well.
