WholeHealth Chicago

The Midwest’s oldest and most respected center for integrative care, successfully blending the latest advances in conventional medicine with a wide range of clinically proven alternative therapies.

WholeHealth Chicago waiting room

We are a healthcare practice that strives to integrate the best of conventional and complementary medicine in a caring and healing environment. We believe that both health and disease are functions of physical, emotional, nutritional, and spiritual influences. Many health issues are rooted in a patient’s personal biography – the story of your life – and are most effectively treated by addressing root causes rather than symptoms alone.

As practitioners, we are actively involved in our own ongoing personal and professional development through continued study and self-care, and we believe the best healthcare draws on a broad array of tools to address the diverse elements that influence health.

There are many ways to encourage our patients’ healing abilities, including many that are not yet considered conventional. We are leaders in the responsible introduction of new treatments and therapies that we know can benefit our patients.

Our relationship with each patient is a genuine partnership. Your visit begins as we listen and try to understand not only your needs but the circumstances surrounding your symptoms. Together, we then develop a healing path to help guide the patient to better health. Together, we share responsibility for the successful journey along that healing path.

We are passionate about helping our patients achieve their health goals whether you are looking for prevention, chronic care, optimization or anything in between.

Our practice adheres to the highest ethical and professional standards, and we believe that your total experience at WholeHealth Chicago should exceed your expectations. This includes interactions with all of our support and administrative staff.

Our aim, whenever possible, is for you to feel better when you leave our office than when you arrived.

Health Tips

Testosterone
LONGEVITY MEDICINE: TESTOSTERONE FOR MEN, AND, YES, FOR WOMEN,TOO

In middle age, men will begin very slowly to notice a group of symptoms attributable to the decline of their male hormone testosterone. The medical term for this is “andropause” sometimes called “male menopause.” I see billboards along the expressways referred to “low T.” Here’s andropause: a loss of your sex drive (libido); erectile dysfunction; […]

Chronic Lyme
May, June, July: Covid, Ticks, Long Haul, Chronic Lyme, What Next? Oh My!!

COVID-19 is certainly still with us. Last week, the U.S. death toll crossed the one million mark. Suburban Evanston returned to the high-risk zone for COVID transmission, yet much of Illinois, especially downstate, remains woefully unvaccinated (only 37% are VAXed and boosted). I receive at least three or four emails a day, variations on “flu-like […]

Roe Vs Wade
The Roe Vs Wade Debacle And My Decades Dealing With Abortion

The opinions on abortion are mine and not necessarily those of the staff at WholeHealth Chicago. For Health Tip readers who have commented that I should not voice political opinions and stick to my work as a doctor, I suggest you glance at any of the websites aimed at physicians themselves. Fully one third of the […]

Lead
LONGEVITY MEDICINE: LONG TERM EXPOSURE TO LEAD

Lead is always toxic in the human body. There are no “safe” levels of lead. An atom of lead enters your body, usually though your lungs or skin, then quickly displaces another atom you really need, like zinc for your immune system, or iron to build blood, or calcium for bones, or dozens of metabolic […]

Sugar
Longevity Medicine: Here’s How Sugar Accelerates Aging

Look, I know there’s a good chance you may be addicted to sugar. Lots of us are. Human taste buds are far more sensitive to sweet tastes than they are to the subtleties of superstar chefs. Food manufacturers today throw sugar into everything, from chili to coleslaw, and the total amount of sugar we eat […]

Chronic Anxiety
Longevity Medicine: Chronic Anxiety Speeds Aging

A diagnosis of anxiety covers a lot of territory. Psychologists organize patients suffering symptoms of anxiety into groups that include: generalized anxiety disorder (with or without panic attacks), obsessive-compulsive disorders, social anxiety disorders, post-traumatic stress disorders, and the various phobias (heights, snakes, germs, etc.). However, the symptoms are all pretty much the same. According to […]
