Carole Childers, the founder of All Ways Healthy, is something of a modern day Odysseus. When her two daughters were younger, only alternative therapies could address their childhood health problems—which sent Carole on an epic quest across the city, seeking out specialty stores with her desired products in stock. Nowadays, she strives to make healthy living a little less time-consuming with her natural-food store. The groceries, organized by dietary lifestyle for speedy shopping, range from gluten-free cupcakes to USDA-certified organic produce. None of the food contains preservatives, high-fructose corn syrup, or a hidden side of fries—and for additional information on any food item, shoppers can consult with Carole, who is a licensed dietary nutritionist. To complement the healthy food, the shop also carries skincare and beauty products, none of which were tested on animals.

Cyclic Variations in Altitude Conditioning (CVAC) simulates a cycling of changes in pressure, temperature, and oxygen, boosting blood’s oxygen-carrying and adaptation capacity to help improve stamina. At Complete Clinics, CVAC explorers step into a pod and spend their 20-minute session listening to music, talking on the phone, or thinking about dinosaurs while the atmospheric changes around them simulate going up and down a mountain somewhere between 200 and 500 times. High-altitude hijinks have always been a favorite way for cyclists, pro athletes, and cowboys to boost their endurance and polish their performance, but it’s being found to have benefits for ordinary folks too. Stanford University recently studied CVAC’s effect on insulin resistance and metabolism, two key factors in obesity. And CVAC users say it helps them sleep better, be more alert, and stop losing their car keys. Click here to see CBS News Chicago’s coverage of how CVAC works and its benefits.

Licensed doctors Tim Erickson, Lori Portnoy, and Eric Eickhorst eschew needle-based acupuncture, instead easing myriad ailments with gentle electrical stimulation, fingertip pressure, and metallic balls. After a consultation to determine the appropriate treatment itinerary, patients receive full spine x-rays and an exam. Next, a brief relief treatment stretches spines to help reduce muscle spasms and aches while preparing patients for International Crabwalk to Work Day. The acupuncture treatment usually lasts fewer than two minutes and helps to attack causes of corporeal discomfort, such as ulcers, abnormal blood pressure, and headaches.
