Josh Axe, D.C., Port Orange ‘07, is on a mission to transform the health of millions across America. In 2008, Dr. Axe founded Exodus Health Center. It quickly grew to more than 1,000 patients seen per week, making it one of the largest natural-health clinics in the United States.

The author of three books, “The Real Food Diet and Cookbook,” “Superfood Super You,” and most recently, “The Dr. Axe Detox,” and host of the syndicated radio program, “Maximize Your Health With Dr. Josh Axe,” Dr. Axe offers lifechanging health solutions to thousands of people each week on the air and online.

He’s been a chiropractor for a number of elite athletes. In 2009 he began working with the Wellness Advisory Council and 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 nutrition, fitness, health recipes, ways to reduce stress and 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.”
