Dr. Eric Berg DC

The Knowledge Doc™

Let me tell you a bit about myself and my history. Since graduating from chiropractic school, most people call me Dr. Berg—officially, Dr. Eric Berg, DC, or just The Knowledge Doc. My main passion has been and continues to be teaching people about health-related topics, including Healthy Keto® and intermittent fasting as a basic long-term eating plan. I love dissecting complex health problems, breaking them down so they are easy to understand, and connecting symptoms to a real cause. I also wrote the Amazon Best Seller, The Healthy Keto Plan. 

In my 30 years of practice in Alexandria, Virginia, I had the opportunity to personally work with over 40,000 people using natural methods, nutrition, and the healthy version of the ketogenic diet (Healthy Keto®). My clients have included senior officials in the U.S. Government, medical doctors, actors, high-level executives of prominent corporations, scientists, professors, engineers, as well as nurses, stay-at-home moms, and high school students. People from all walks of life and from all over the world visited me. I also devotedly did my in-house seminars several times a week, including external seminars in Governmental agencies, including the Library of Congress, Federal Communication Commission, National Institute of Science, FBI, and many others.

In addition to my practice, I created monthly training seminars for doctors in which I delivered my techniques to over 2,500 doctors and healthcare practitioners. 

My passion for teaching shifted to YouTube in 2008. Over the next 14 years, I compiled over 6,000 videos on just about every health topic that you could imagine. Yes, it’s up at 4 am studying and recording videos all day for many years. I am proud to say my YouTube channel, including different languages, finally totaled 18 million subscribers and regularly achieves 100 million views per month. 

I really want to put people into the driver’s seat of creating health.   

Most of my time is behind a computer screen or deep in medical textbooks and research papers—and unfortunately now I need glasses, one problem I have not solved...yet. I am constantly searching for underlying reasons why people get diseases—it's become a hobby. So, it’s either doing videos or creating courses. I even created a course on keto and intermittent fasting to train Keto Coaches worldwide. 

In 2017 and 2018, I hosted my annual Keto Health Summit at the Gaylord Hotel in National Harbor Maryland, where 1,000 people flew in from all over the world to attend and soak up a wealth of keto knowledge. That was a blast! 

My recent area of interest is on the farm. Actually, it’s in the soil. I live on a farm and am conducting research on how to grow nutrient-dense food and nutrient-dense animals—and it all starts IN the soil.
