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”.

“OH, I AM SO BLOATED!”
“OH, I AM SO BLOATED!”

Susan had written, “BLOATED!” in the section of her intake form headed, “What’s the main problem?”.

When her bloating was especially severe, she looked like […]

NATURAL TREATMENTS FOR OSTEOARTHRITIS AND RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS
Natural Treatments for Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid Arthritis

Osteoarthritis (OA) is considered ‘non-inflammatory’ and basically a ‘wear-and-tear’ phenomenon that occurs with passage of time.

Menopause Hot Flashes: They’re Getting Worse but Some Good News, Too!

Lots of data were collected and questions asked. Were […]

Gum Stories
GUM STORIES

Head tilted back, mouth stretched to the max to accommodate fingers, cotton, and something metallic and vaguely medieval, my plaque was sandblasted to smithereens. My dentist wrinkled his nose and peered inside, cocked an eye, and remarked, “You have very youthful gums.”  I cannot deny my unalloyed pleasure hearing this. I’d been thinking about aging […]

I’m Taking So Many Meds! What Can I Stop? Part One: Antidepressants

Although many new patients arrive at WholeHealth Chicago with chronic symptoms and a history of no help elsewhere (“You’re my 12th doctor.”). Others pour out a bagful of medications with a mournful, “I’ve got to get off of some of these!”. Going off a bevy of psych meds is a popular request, especially when the […]

Antidepressants
Reversing Cognitive Decline and Preventing Alzheimer’s

You saw a movie last week and in discussing it with friends simply can’t remember the important parts. Plus you just missed another appointment. Planning to drive to a north suburb, you instead got on the southbound expressway and after 15 minutes of Loop traffic realized your error. You’re mixing up words and forgetting too […]
