Jeanette, sitting across from me, was genuinely frightened about her future. Yes, she did have several elderly relatives with what she was calling “Alzheimer’s”, but I quickly pointed out that not all causes of dementia are due to Alzheimer’s Disease and much of dementia is both preventable and reversible. I asked what steps she had […]

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”.
You’ll see ultraviolet lamps in many areas of hospitals and medical centers used in a variety of ways. Doctors began to appreciate the healing powers of ultraviolet light as far back as the early years of the 20th century. In 1903, Dr. Niels Finsen won the Nobel Prize in Medicine for curing lupus of the skin with ultraviolet violet. To this day, dermatologists rely on external UV for psoriasis and certain skin cancers. But sterilizing medical equipment, or treating psoriasis, use UV externally.
If you’ve ever undergone surgery, either “emergency” (like “we need to remove your appendix
NOW”) or “elective” (a strange term basically meaning “you can put your surgery off until it’s
convenient for either of us but let’s not forget about it”), you may remember you needed to
undergo “surgical clearance.”
If you’ve been to either of our centers, I’m sure you’ve seen the large leather recliner chairs, often containing a patient, busy on their smartphone, tablet or reading a book and on the receiving end of an intravenous drip. Over the next few Health Tips, I’ll be talking about what these infusions are used for […]
There’s some interesting data in this Health Tip based on both recent and older research concerning our screen viewing habits and their effects on both mind and body. When I present you with a “number” like this one, “the average American watches 3.1 hours of TV every day” (in this, we’re highest in the world), […]
It was like magic. After three years of sickness, death, lockdowns, masks, taking our temperatures, measuring oxygen levels, suddenly everyone on the planet seemed so shout “Don’t talk to me about COVID anymore!” The CDC loosened its guidelines, schools reopened, retail stores, big events, public transportation all became masks “optional.” When I’m outside about 3% […]
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!”
