Preventive Health & Physicals

WholeHealth Chicago brings preventive medicine into the 21st century. You want to know what you, as a unique individual, might be facing, health-wise, in the future. Not the future of tomorrow or next week, but in the decades ahead (and we hope there will be plenty of them).

When patients arrive at WholeHealth Chicago for their initial visit, they’ll often bring a shopping bag (or at least a list) of nutritional supplements they’re taking. Sometimes they’ve done their homework and know exactly why they’re taking them, but many people are just hazarding guesses.

It’s somewhat ironic many people are taking supplements their primary physician should be prescribing: anti-inflammatories like fish oil and turmeric, antioxidants, and detoxifiers. They often, and quite accidentally, are covering future health risks. But they also may be taking supplements they simply don’t need. Likely harmless, but a complete waste of money.

We use precision medicine, meaning preventive medicine designed for you and only you, to figure out exactly what your body needs to prevent future chronic illness or disease.

  • Health profile exams
  • Men’s and Woman’s panels
  • DNA sport, diet and mind testing
  • Cardiovascular and diabetes risk testing
