Saving a Bundle on Healthcare, Part 2

Click here for the Health Tip link. If you use nutritional supplements and alternative therapies as part of your health care, you may finally be compelled to thank the Republicans for something you’ll like (that was not an easy sentence for me to write).

Saving A Bundle on Your Health Care

Click here for the Health Tip link. A recent public survey revealed that the most pressing problem with our health care system was not that so many people were either underinsured or without insurance altogether, but that health care–all aspects of it–was just too expensive.

Your car is making an odd but expensive-sounding noise. But wait–don’t pull a blanket over your head or reach for the martinis. Instead, have a good laugh. “Well,” you Read More

I Went to the Doctor and I Left Feeling Much Better

Posted 03/10/2009 At WholeHealth Chicago we view health care differently than most conventional doctors, so when patients share sentiments like the one in the headline, it makes our day a very good one. Following the original definition of the word “doctor,” we see ourselves as teachers, not body mechanics (or in my case, someone who ministers to broken psyches) focused on fixing illness. We don’t Read More

Saving A Bundle on Your Health Care, Part 3

Click here for the Health Tip link. Let’s say that you’re among the numerous unemployed whose COBRA benefits are expiring. Or you’re among the under-employed who aren’t eligible for your employer’s health insurance. For the first time in your life, you realize you don’t have health insurance.

Our Missing Nutrients

Click here for the Health Tip link. “Empty calories.” “Overweight and undernourished.” These are the phrases used to describe millions of Americans. Waddling though our now half-empty shopping malls, chowing down on a Mrs. Field’s cookie for the energy to get us to that distant food court, we wonder, “What, in this Land of Plenty, could we be missing, nutrition-wise?” In a recent study monitoring Read More

    Six Commonly Missed Diagnoses: Vitamin D Deficiency

    Much of medical care is hampered by the black-and-white thinking of doctors. You either have a condition (symptoms confirmed by positive tests) or you don’t (symptoms, but no useful test results, and therefore “nothing’s wrong with you”). Doctors are uncomfortable with grey zones, like when …Read More »
