Dr. Phil

$65,000 Fountain of Youth

A Giant Pressurized Egg

Suck it, Lady Gaga -- TMZ has learned, 63-year-old Dr. Phil has his OWN giant mysterious egg-shaped pod thing ... except Phil's isn't some publicity stunt ... it's a $65,000 piece of technology that could help reverse the aging process.

It's called a CVAC, which stands for Cyclic Variations in Adaptive Conditioning, and there are only 16 in the world, used by all kinds of rich people and famous athletes.

According to CVAC, the chamber uses a computer-controlled valve and a vacuum pump to simulate high altitude and compress the muscles at rhythmic intervals, which purportedly improves circulation, boosts oxygen-rich blood cells, and even stimulates biogenesis and stem cell production. Translation: it could be the fountain of youth.

And we've learned Dr. Phil has one IN HIS HOUSE. We're told Phil purchased the contraption because he's very active and it helps with his shoulder and knee problems.

Not bad for $65,000 -- and with a reported net worth of $240 million, Dr. Phil can afford it.

Why can't TMZ report that Phildo smokes crack too. Use another anonymous "source".

Even after the treatment he emerges as an old bald douchebag.

Well he doesn't look young in that picture, so I don't think the egg is working. If you want to feel compressed, you can just get a massage or take a bath. It seems people who just do simple work like farm work or kitchen work stay in the best shape.

If it's so awesome... why are there only 16 in the world? 65k isn't a lot of money relative to the claim and the people that would benefit

It works like this: the high altitude simulation destroys you brain quickly so that you get out of the chamber with a big grin. And retards never get older.

It wouldn't "reverse the aging process"... It may slow it or stop it, but it's not a Benjamin Button machine. Just sayin'.
