Christmas day is a time for family, friends, and others who have touched our lives deeply. On this day, I hope you are sharing in the joy of the season with those who matter most to you, and I want to let you know that, each and every day, I am grateful for subscribers like you, who are helping to support and share our vision for a naturally healthier, happier world.
Mercola.com seeks to be your primary trusted source of reliable and accurate health information. But it is only because of you, our family of subscribers, that our influence has spread not only in the United States, but in other countries as well – now serving millions of visitors each month.
With your help, we have been able to help educate the public and to help you make informed health choices for yourselves and your families. We hope that with our continuous service, you will stay motivated to take control of your health.
Together We Can Move Mountains…
With every article you read here, you are building your knowledge base of how to address the roots of disease before it even starts. Within your own sphere of influence, you have the power to help others preserve and enhance their health by sharing these health tips, and we know that many of you eagerly do.
And on a larger scale, your continued support of Mercola.com reaches much further than that. We have partnered with some of the top non-profit health groups who aim to educate you on important health, food safety, and informed consent issues.
Together, we have formed Health Liberty, a non-profit coalition that aims to help protect your freedom to make voluntary health choices. And, as we have grown, we are able to take part in successful fundraising campaigns, which many of you have participated in.
Together, we are making a difference. We are making landmark changes for vaccine awareness, GMO labeling efforts, mercury-free dentistry, water fluoridation, and much more. Next week, we will be sharing much more about our year’s accomplishments, but until then, suffice to say that we couldn’t have done it without you!
Enjoy One of My All-Time Favorite Movies: It’s a Wonderful Life
Released in 1946, It’s a Wonderful Life still captures the hearts of new viewers over six decades later. This movie is also a wonderful metaphor for your power to change the world. It’s one of my personal all-time favorites.
In the film, George Bailey (Jimmy Stewart) spends his entire life giving up his big dreams for the good of his town, Bedford Falls. But come one Christmas Eve, he is dismayed and suicidal over a misplaced loan, and the plotting of the evil millionaire, Mr. Potter, who wants to take over the town.
Just when George’s spirit is about to be broken, his guardian angel, Clarence, falls to Earth, and shows him how his town, family, and friends would’ve turned out had he never been born.
The ending to this movie, if any of you still haven’t seen it, will bring tears to your eyes and remind you of how many lives YOU touch every day. So this Christmas, I want to thank you for your loyalty and support, and wish you peace, joy and health on this special day.
I’d like to leave you with one final thought – an idea for what to gift those on your Christmas list, as quoted by novelist Oren Arnold. The best part? These gifts don’t come from a store and they keep on giving all year long.
“Christmas Gift Suggestions:
To your enemy, forgiveness.
