Lifestyle Medicine

Lifestyle medicine is a comprehensive way to prevent, treat, and cure.

The American College of Lifestyle Medicine defines Lifestyle Medicine as the use of evidence-based lifestyle therapeutic intervention, including a whole-food, plan-predominant eating pattern, regular physical activity, restorative sleep, stress management, avoidance of risky substances, and positive social connection, as a primary modality, delivered by clinicians trained and certified in this specialty, to prevent, treat, and often reverse chronic disease.

WELLNESS PATH TO CANCER PREVENTION 2024

 Okay, so this Health Tip seems pretty important. After a certain age, every person fears getting cancer (and believe me, doctors are just as fearful as everyone else!). Being told by a health care professional, “I’m sorry but the biopsy confirmed it. You have cancer,” or “We need to find you a good oncologist.”, that […]

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.”).
