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.
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.

Jolene Anderson was on her own path to wellness when she received her first colon-hydrotherapy treatments. Invigorated by her experience, she gained certification and opened The Movement Colon Hygiene Center. Today, she leads her staff in clearing debris from bodies during colon-hydrotherapy sessions. Each client settles in a private room and removes below-the-belt garments before reclining with a book or personal music player. During each session, the gravity-fed flow from the Angel of Water system flushes out residue of environmental pollutants and previous careers as taste testers for mozzarella sticks.
The center’s additional services ensure bodies’ exteriors receive the same gentle attention. Sessions in the Mercola Vitality Refresh tanning system impart vitamin D while working to smooth wrinkles and soothe the muscle stiffness that results from impersonating Atlas. The TheraSauna’s far-infrared rays beam in benefits including detoxification, cellulite reduction, and tension relief.
The Movement Colon Hygiene Center is open Monday through Wednesday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., with extended hours every other Tuesday until 7:30 p.m., Friday from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Saturday from 7:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
