Most people figure they must be getting older based on how they feel and look. We wince at our first grey hair, deepening wrinkles, and shifting body fat. We huff and puff climbing the stairs, forget names, and occasionally leak fluids. We relate to the line from a Leonard Cohen song, “I ache in the […]

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”.
Two thyroid facts worth knowing: You’ve shown up for your usual ten minute, quick glance billed to your insurer as an in-depth primary care office visit. You’re allowed to talk about one problem only, and so you present the symptoms of hypothyroidism every doctor and nurse practitioner should be able to recite in their sleep. […]
In middle age, you, as a man, or your sexual partner (keeping this observation to her/himself), will likely start to notice a group of symptoms due to a slow but inevitable decline of your male hormone testosterone. As the movie director Martin Scorsese put it well, “Sex becomes memory.” Not necessarily. Not by a long […]
The (alleged) BIG NEWS in health care last week, that spread through CNN, Prevention Magazine, NYT, Journal of the AMA, etc. etc., was the publication in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology which compared the cholesterol lowering effect of statins to those of several nutritional supplements (cinnamon, fish oil, garlic, red yeast rice, […]
Checking Your Family History Most people aren’t certain what illnesses run in their family and how dangerous these might be. Probably best not to spend much time agonizing about this, unless you’re pretty sure there was an unusually excessive amount of premature deaths (50’s, 60’s) from heart disease. Better to work mainly on yourself. Hearing […]
About 700,000 of us will die of heart disease every year; most of which is preventable provided we become proactive patients. But you do need to know that for most “heart patients”, dying does not come quickly, like a dart falling from the sky, fatally nailing you, as you clutch your chest, your friends desperately tapping 9-1-1 on their […]
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!”
