A question that I just received about laser hair restoration…

Hey Dr. Todd…I have a question for you. My husband was thinking about purchasing some kind of cold laser technology that he had seen advertised in the past for stimulation of hair folicals for hair regrowth and thickening. I told him that you used cold laser therapy in your practice and that I would check with you to see if it is proven for hair growth or or not. If you do not know, would you know where I could check on the veracity of those claims for hair regrowth? Thanks for any info you know about it.

Sincerely,

J.H.  from  Wood River, IL

I received the following QUESTION two weeks ago via e-mail regarding WEIGHT LOSS: “Hey, Dr. Todd. I saw your website and saw some interesting things on diets and eating healthier there.” {He was referring to this page on my AFCvirden website:  http://www.afcvirden.com/loseweight.html } “Next … Continue reading

A question about HEART HEALTH that I was asked yesterday.

Yesterday while attending my local Chamber of Commerce meeting, we heard about a business owner in town who has a grown child (although still relatively young compared to me & most of the others at the meeting) who recently suffered a heart attack.  Of course our collective thoughts and prayers go out to him for a speedy recovery.

A lady sitting near me said “Oh my God, that’s too young!”.  I agreed that it was.  She then went on to ask me “Is there anything that us 40 & 50 yr olds at the meeting could be doing to decrease our chance of a HEART ATTACK?”  My

Dr. Todd displays the book “Heart Disease What Your Doctor Won’t Tell You”.

For a more in-depth look at heart disease, the book “Heart Disease What Your Doctor Won’t Tell You” is now available at Austin Family Chiropractic in Virden, IL.

reply was a resounding “Absolutely!” 

This lady who I like to kid around with because she knows very, very little about health looked at me like I was nuts.  I guess she expected me to say that we were all doomed to suffer such a fate.  

I went on to explain that just 30 minutes prior to the meeting I had taken all of my AM nutritional supplements, about 14 of them in all.  Once again, I got the ‘you must be off your rocker’ glance from her.  I told her that by taking 4 of these supplements, I had just decreased my chance of DYING of a HEART ATTACK by a whopping 81% as compared to her.  In fact, she takes NO nutritional supplements, and her idea of a balanced breakfast is ‘Fruit Loops’ cereal because she saw a commercial once that stated it was healthy cereal due to being fortified with 17 vitamins & minerals. 

I mentioned that diet also had a lot to do with it.  If all you eat is stuff out of bags, boxes and cans, survey says – that’s not a very healthy diet.

If you’d like to know about the 4 supplements I’m referring to, all of which we keep in stock at http://www.AFCvirden.com , please respond to this blog post, and I’ll be happy to explain further.

In the meantime …. in the video below, I go into some detail about 3 of the supplements and why cholesterol-lowering statin drugs are a total racket:

Yours in health,
