Back in 2011, I wrote a Health Tip entitled, “Physicians as Morons”, whose title over the years I have come to regret, the unpleasantness of name-calling and all. You can read about this case here, but it’s just easier if I summarize it. A young woman had contacted me for help with the unusual diagnosis […]

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 must admit being intrigued by a New York Times article earlier this month entitled, “How a Gastroenterologist Cares for Her Gut”, because, let’s face it, we do a lot of “gut rehab” work here at WholeHealth Chicago. I was curious about the conventional recommendations. In fact, all of us pretty much agree with the […]
Maybe the increases in these diagnoses began with the COVID pandemic but more likely we just weren’t paying attention. We’ll not really know until a few years from now when statisticians look over the data, compare notes with each other, and can finally say, “Wow! Look at these numbers! More mood disorders, more anti-depressants and […]
I scan all sorts of medical information sources to write these Health Tips. The usual ones that every doctor should be reading (JAMA, Medscape, etc.), but I don’t miss the New York Times and the Washington Post. I often find something I might have missed elsewhere. This article from the Times startled me, but it […]
If you’ve been to either of our centers, I’m sure you’ve seen patients relaxing in large recliner chairs, dozing, or busy on their smartphone, tablet or reading a book and on the receiving end of an intravenous drip. If you happen to glance at what’s in the intravenous tubing, you might notice it’s red, and […]
Of course, everyone reading this already knows that sugar is “bad” for you. It’ll make you fat, you can get addicted to it, and it causes all sorts of health problems, like early heart disease, diabetes, depression, cancer susceptibility. But recently, a massive study out of China was able to determine how much sugar taken […]
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!”
“Love WholeHealth Chicago. Best integrative care!”
