the University of Michigan Swim Team. He worked with professional
swimmers, including U.S. Olympic Team member
Ryan Lochte, giving advice on nutrition and providing musculoskeletal
work to help improve their performance. He also
traveled to the 2012 Olympic Games in London to work with
Team USA athletes.
Additionally, Dr. Axe has created one of the top 25 natural
health websites in the world, www.draxe.com. Draxe.com has
over 200,000 monthly visitors, where the main topics include

current health news and videos.
“Palmer College helped me get to where I am today by doing
a good job in exposing me to the basics of good health in a
non-biased chiropractic college environment,” he says. “This
type of exposure as well as the variety of chiropractic clubs
on campus allows students the opportunity to continue to
grow as leaders.”
