Mari Stecker Fundraiser

As many of you know, our acupuncturist Mari Stecker has been battling non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma for the past year. She is now in her sixth round of chemotherapy. The lymphoma came in the wake of uterine cancer, which Mari overcame less than five years ago.

With all this treatment, Mari has been unable to work for more than a year. To help with her considerable financial distress (and provide a nice Valentine’s Day gift), WholeHealth Chicago is holding an unusual fundraiser.

A portion of the profits from all purchases in our apothecary on Valentine’s Day will go to Mari.

Please review your supplements now so you can place an order on Thursday, February 14. If you’ve not been a regular customer, consider using our apothecary this Valentine’s Day to help bolster our fundraiser. We stock the highest quality brands of virtually every type of supplement. Our knowledgeable staff can help you with questions. Contact them at 773-296-6700 ext. 2001 or click here to send an email.

Sweeter than chocolates or flowers, you can be certain this gift will be gratefully received.

With our personal thanks,
David Edelberg, Paul Rubin, Casey Kelley, Cliff Maurer, Larry Stoler, Cindy Kudelka, Helen Strietelmeier, Marla Feingold, Seanna Tully, Sujatha Mannal, Samson Wong, Karen Meier, Katie Oberlin,  Janet Chandler, Lizz, Raquel, Nancy, Beth, Brenda, Sarah Jean, Cigi, Donna, Ellen, Heidi, Idette, Lori, Renee, and Kelly.

  • Do You Have Low Testosterone?

    For 80 (!) years physicians have prescribed testosterone to men without being certain if it actually had any effect…other than raising testosterone levels. The only FDA-approved indication for testosterone is hypogonadism, in which there’s an actual disorder of the male reproductive system that results in the body not producing enough testosterone. Causes of hypogonadism include testicular damage from mumps, a genetic condition called Klinefelter syndrome, Read More

  • WholeHealth Chicago IV Therapies: Metabolic Boost (Skinny Shots)

    It’s really a bummer to add weight gain to the stressors you’ve been experiencing in this difficult year of Covid-19, police brutality, and economic crashes. You’re the victim of a perfect storm: inactivity, anxiety, disrupted sleep, and eating too many of the wrong calories. I know comfort foods are comforting, but did you really need to bake another batch of snickerdoodles? The result of all Read More

  • I Feel So Inflamed!

    Previously, I wrote about mold-related illness, yet another commonly overlooked diagnosis. It’s surprising how regularly mold issues fly under the radar of conventional physicians. When you consider how often homes and workplaces have a leaky roof, unless something smells moldy or we discover creeping black stains somewhere we often don’t think of mold. Moreover, because just 25% of us are genetically susceptible to mold allergies Read More
