Nourished4life's weight-loss programs trim physiques by banishing toxins from the diet while introducing scientific superfoods that provide balanced sustenance. After an initial 15-minute phone call with a health coach who assigns verbal pushups, customers receive a package of powders, enzymes, and capsules. The company's signature superfood powder resides within this package, tucked alongside digestive enzymes and triple-fruit triphala capsules to scrub insides of built-up waste and toxins. These supplements come with a menu plan and an accompanying grocery list to ensure seven days of totally healthy fare. The company continually supports clients via email, and the package comes with step-by-step instructions on what to take when and how to monitor results without using a measuring tape as a belt.
Reflecting its multi-disciplinary approach, MIMIT—Midwest Institute for Minimally Invasive Treatments—employs a team of board certified practitioners from diverse medical backgrounds. Four fellowship-trained interventional radiologists and two general surgeons helm the staff, which also includes three certified physician's assistants. Together, they approach healing with a focus on function, as well as aesthetics, and aim to empower their clients through treatment education. The team specializes in needle-aided sclerotherapy, endo-venous laser treatments, and radio frequency ablation treatments for venous disease, as well as pain-reduction kyphoplasty treatments for spinal compression. They also rely on a blend of non-invasive and surgical techniques to treat issues ranging from peripheral arterial disease to breast cancer.
In 1930, Dr. Joseph Rosin and his brother, Maurice, opened a small shop on Cermak Road in Cicero. In 80 years, the shop has grown from a small family-run optometrist's office to a regionally renowned business that has sharpened the eyesight of celebrities such as Joe DiMaggio and Plácido Domingo and left its mark on the Chicago area by designing famous symbols such as Harry Caray's trademark glasses and the novelty shades that adorn the John Hancock Center. Today, Rosin Eyecare rests in the hands of the third generation of Rosins, ably helmed by brothers James and Jonathan, who continue a proud tradition of warm, personal service as they improve eyesight with high-tech LASIK and PRK treatments as well as stylish eyeglasses with scratch-resistant lenses. At 16 locations, including the newest office Long Grove, a staff of optometrists keeps optical orbs in high function with comprehensive exams, treating each patient's individual needs with products such as a contact-lens implant or a prescription safety eyewear.
At Lake Forest Dental, Ltd., experienced cosmetic dentist Dr. Steve Ballis turns teeth 7–10 shades brighter with Zoom! teeth-whitening treatments. Patients begin the roughly 90-minute session by reclining in leather chairs as their lips and gums receive a protective cover, leaving only the teeth and their sordid secrets exposed. Zoom! whitening gel then smothers mouth bones and works specifically with the Zoom! light to penetrate enamel and remove stains and discoloration. During the hour-long bleaching, clients may watch TV, attempt to interpret the Voynich manuscript, or listen to music.
