    Hello! Let me just start by saying how much I admire the structure of your health center. I love the intentional collaboration between MDs, yoga instructors, psychiatrists, etc. to provide a holistic healing environment for people. It’s simply brilliant! I am currently earning my Health Coach certification through the Institute of Integrative Nutrition and am exploring various opportunities, centers, and practices here in the city in hopes of transitioning into this field full-time. I would thoroughly enjoy visiting your center and hearing from you and your practitioners. Hope to hear from you in the near future.

    Hi Judy – For anyone with a new neurological diagnosis, we usually recommend taking a look at the book Grain Brain; you can read about it and order it here: http://store.wholehealthchicago.com/shop/grain-brain/. Naturally, having a good neurologist on board is essential, as well as a good primary care physician and a nutritionist who has experience working with patients dealing with neurological issues. We usually recommend looking for a support group in your area as well. Your neurologist can help you find one. If you’re in the Chicago area, I’d recommend seeing Dr. Kristen Donigan for an integrative and holistic opinion on your care. You can review her biography here: http://wholehealthchicago.com/about/kristen-donigan/.

    All the best to you; please let us know if we can help.

    Dr M

    Glad to be part of your website.

  9. Thanks for this excellent resource. I have used this site for years and especially enjoy the Knowledge Base. This afternoon, I dug into info on NSAIDs versus curcumin and Boswellia for lower back muscle pain. The natural supplements win hands down.

  10. Debra says:

    I have just started taking Losartan 12.5 mg for my be I al 60 yrs old. So far the only thing I noticed is that my mouth and vagina are dry. Is thus a common side effect? If so what would you suggest to help these areas not be dry.

  11. cliffmaurer says:

    Hi Debra – it doesn’t appear that these are common side effects for Losartan, but you should discuss them with your physician and make certain that he or she knows all of the other medications you’re on, if any. Dryness is a fairly common side effect of many medications and sometimes appears when medications are taken together.
    Hope this helps

  12. Diane says:

    I am anxious to get off of acid blockers and am hoping to try digestive enzymes. I know that you can’t take them together. Can you advise me on how to discontinue the acid blockers and begin the digestive enzymes?

    Thank you!

  13. Debbie Siemens says:

    Hi, I was hoping that Dr. Edelburg had written a new book for men 🙂 I loved Triple Whammy Cure for myself and have recommended it over the years for many women. But I see there’s no new book for men? I’ve noticed that a lot of the men in my life, my husband, my brother, my father, as well as husbands of friends, are dealing with depression and fatigue and associated old age illnesses such as diabetes, high blood pressure, etc. Please Dr. Edelburg, write another book for the men this time! They really need it and so do the wives of these men 🙂 thank you so much!

  16. cliffmaurer says:

    Hi Anita – Chronic constipation can arise from a variety of causes. It’s best to consult with your physician and possibly get a second opinion if you’re not getting results. If you’re in the Chicago area, one of our physicians would be happy to help. You can schedule by calling 773-296-6700.

    Best wishes,
    Dr M

  19. Merrir says:

    First time on this site.My brother is struggling with his diabetes issues.What are u recommendations to treat it,in holistic way.He is under the care of his endocrinologists .Thanks.

  20. cliffmaurer says:

    Hi Merrir –

    Holistic approaches to diabetes vary, but typically it’s all about education and making changes in lifestyle that are typically simple. Often, our nutritionists will start by educating diabetic patients about what types of things to include and what to avoid in their diet. Making straight forward, achievable goals for exercise (daily walking, gentle yoga, etc) and some nutritional supplement recommendations is also part of the plan. Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine can also be very helpful. We do all of this for patients while watching their lab numbers to ensure that customized plans are working for people.

    Hope this helps; best wishes to you and your brother.
    -Dr. M
