Dr. Mark William Cochran

Dr Mark William CochranDr. Mark William Cochran is a holistic doctor who has traveled an amazing healing journey in his own life. For many years, the pain of inflammatory arthritis made it a painful challenge for him to climb just one flight of stairs. At age 47, Mark experienced a quantum shift in his health and at 49, ran his first marathon, the Spokane Marathon.

Dr. Mark is a thought leader in today's healthcare arena, and brings a unique, empowering and sometimes controversial perspective to his writing. Some of his thoughts:

"The 'Doctor Within' is the most successful doctor in history." "We don't have a healthcare system. We have a disease industry." "Germs are not the cause of disease." "If you want healthy kids, let them get dirty."

Dr. Mark is the author of the award winning book, Oby's Wisdom! A Caveman's Simple Guide to Holistic Health and Wellness. He is a holistic chiropractor and energy healer in private practice in Hayden and Sandpoint, Idaho. Dr. Mark, his lovely wife, Cricket and their fuzzy feline companions, Magick and Angel, feel blessed to live, love, work and play amid the towering pines, majestic mountains and sparkling lakes of the Idaho panhandle.
