After a certain age, every person fears getting cancer (and believe me, doctors are just as fearful as everyone else!). Being told, “I’m sorry but the biopsy confirmed it. You have cancer,” or “we need to find you a good oncologist,” is a moment you will remember the rest of your life. As you leave […]

A Place of Healing, Calm, and Wellness.
At WholeHealth Chicago, we have a very rich toolbox of Integrative, Functional and Alternative Medicine. This means for each patient our practitioners rely on the best evidence-based medicine and individualize a treatment plan–what we call a healing path.
The patient and provider work together to develop a diagnostic and therapeutic program that makes sense for the individual. It combines the discipline of modern science with the wisdom of ancient healing.
We truly want you better, and the best thing we can hear from a patient is somebody coming in and saying the phrase, “I’m feeling better! I’m finally feeling better”.
I hope you never have to hear these words from any doctor. Dismissive and ending anything useful you hoped from a consultation. You scheduled this appointment months earlier. You wanted help for longstanding and unexplained symptoms. But you’re also not stupid. You actually have an idea what might be wrong. You’ve read a book or […]
It was in the papers and online just last week: women, who have always outlived men longevity wise, just widened the gap a bit more. All sorts of usual suspects: guns, drugs, self-neglect, poor diets, more smoking. But one factor wasn’t mentioned, probably not worth considering by statisticians, and that’s this: All around the world, […]
Leaky gut syndrome, also known as intestinal hyperpermeability, is a disorder that never appeared in any medical textbook I encountered in school. I first learned of its existence at an integrative medicine meeting many years ago, and since then, I’ve lost count of how many times this condition has turned out to be the root […]
If you’ve got some spare time, you might want to read two or three articles summarizing the work of Claudia Goldin, the first woman to be a solo winner for the Nobel Prize in Economics. Most involves gender inequalities, especially in marriage and the workplace. The results of which I observe with painful regularity in […]
Over the years of writing Health Tips, I was surprised to discover that one I’d written a few years ago, about vitamin B12 deficiency, had received the most comments and questions from readers. Since there have been some interesting developments in both the diagnosis and treatment of B12 deficiency, and since B12 deficiency remains so […]
We combine the best of conventional and alternative medicine.
At WholeHealth Chicago our patients have access to providers who use an integrative and functional medicine model.
Integrative Medicine is restorative medicine that considers the whole person.
Functional Medicine focuses on underlying causes rather than symptoms alone.
Alternative Medicine uses therapies that may not be seen as mainstream in Western medicine. But are actually forms of ancient healing.
Thousands of Happy Patients
“I have been going to WHC for 12 years and even travel back to Chicago from Florida to see Dr. Edelberg.”
“WholeHealth Chicago is an amazing healthcare practice filled with practitioners who truly care. They will be by your side every step of the way to help you find the root cause(s) of your illness.”
“Dr. Edelberg actually listened to me. This shouldn't be enough to warrant a five-star review, but if you're a woman in your 40s, you know how rare it is to find a doctor that actually listens to you and helps you find solutions. The whole staff has been super helpful and made me feel comfortable. Highly recommend!”
“At almost 53 I have had several general practitioners in my life. I very much enjoy Whole Health Chicago for their more thoughtful approach to health. If your numbers are off they don't try to push drugs on you but instead have a more of a lifestyle conversation instead. I highly recommend Whole Health Chicago.”
“Excellent, caring professionals who work well together and as a coordinated team for the best patient outcome”
“I have been coming to Whole Health for many years and really respect and appreciate their Nutritionists! They are very knowledgeable and caring!”
