The Medical Arms Race and You

With the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991, the phrase “arms race” became a less frequently used part of our vocabulary. Before then, both the US and the Russians had been developing, building, and stockpiling larger and more threatening weapons, in the process draining wealth and increasing, rather than decreasing, the odds of armed conflict. Money–simple greed, really–was behind much of it. In one Read More

What Having A Medical Team Actually Means

It’s quite common for a new WholeHealth Chicago patient filling out our forms to answer the “How can we help?” inquiry with “I’m seeing too many doctors and they don’t communicate with each other” or “I want all my health care in one place with one doctor who knows me.”  Having worked as part of a small group for more 20 years, it’s hard for Read More

SiCKO Part Three: More on Michael Moore’s Important Documentary

Recent Health Tips

  • Hey Doc, When Are You Going to Write Up My Case?

    I hear this question virtually every time I see Alan, an extremely healthy, energetic man in his forties who could easily pass for someone in his twenties. He comes to the office once a year for a check-up (he’s always just fine), but since we cross paths at our health club I’m reminded about his “case” fairly often. I haven’t explained to him that when Read More

Despite enjoying a relatively calm life, Peggy’s panic attacks were back and one morning she realized they’d Read More
