My 1st post on the #ChiroThin Weight Loss Program

Here at Austin Family Chiropractic in Virden, IL (Northern Macoupin County) we (my wife Eugena aka Gluten Free Gena and I) have been offering the #ChiroThin Doctor Assisted Weight Loss Program for approximately 6 months now and we’ve seen some downright amazing results!

Our last 2 patients who just completed the program lost 23.5 & 22.5 lbs in just 6 weeks! And we had 3 new patients start the program on Monday. These are exciting times!

I recently took “The Dr. Todd Show” at AskDrTodd.com on location to Sullivan Chiro in Chatham (20 minutes north of Virden) where Dr. Gene & Sara also run a successful ChiroThin practice. I picked their brains and they shared some amazing info with me and my vlog viewers!

Please check out our ChiroThin videos.
My complete ChiroThin Doctor Assisted Weight Loss Program Video Playlist is available at YouTube as well.

If you’d rather not have to click over to YouTube, I’ve embedded the full playlist for you right here. Any new videos added after this blog post’s creation will appear here as well, not just the recent Sullivan Chiro interviews:

At Austin Family Chiropractic, one of our rules is that we don’t try anything out on you that one of us hasn’t tried out first on each ourselves or a family member. With that being said, my wife Eugena B. Austin, L.M.T / Chiropractic Assistant has gone through the ChiroThin program herself twice. On each occasion she has lost 26 pounds! You go, Gena!!!

“On DIABETES” – with one of my Advanced Clinical Nutrition Mentors, Dr. Bryan Reid

Dear AskDrTodd readers and “The Dr. Todd Show” viewers,

I was honored recently to have the priveledge of interviewing Dr. Bryan Reid, D.C.
Dr. Reid is truly one of my Clinical Nutrition mentors. He knows his nutrition, his physiology, his lab testing, etc. The analytical guy I am, I like to pick his brain (via either Facebook private message or text) every chance I get. With that being said, Dr. Bryan recently came to Virden, IL to film a few segments as my special guest on “The Dr. Todd Show” for AskDrTodd.com. We filmed the DIABETES show at Austin Family Chiropractic and we did two other episodes at the brand new, official ‘Doctor Todd Show Studio’ which is located in Northern Macoupin County as well.

In this, the DIABETES episode, Dr. Reid discusses blood sugar handling, the different types of DIABETES and a condition known as SLUGGISH LIVER.

I hope this info proves to be helpful for you and your loved ones.

Please comment below. As always, all of your feedback is appreciated.

Yours in health,

Dr. Todd Austin
Clinical Director of Austin Family Chiropractic and Advanced Clinical Nutrition Center

Acknowledging my Wonderful Wife, GlutenFreeGena.

Dr. Todd & Eugena Austin from GlutenFreeGena.com at P.F.Chang’s.

Dear AskDrTodd.com followers and “The Dr. Todd Show” viewers,

I’d like to take a moment to give some major props to the love of my life, Mrs. Eugena B. Austin. I met Eugena 20 years ago. We got engaged 19 1/2 years ago and have been married for over 17 years. Together we’ve had 3 beautiful daughters (ages 6 through 11 as I type this).

Gena is an awesome Licensed Massage Therapist as well as my Chiropractic Assistant / Office Manager at AFC.

Eugena has struggled with weight problems off and on since before we met. Then in August 2013, she had her “I’ve had it” moment. That’s when her alter ego GLUTEN FREE GENA was born. Then last month, at the insistence of some of her facebook friends and my facebook friends as well as a plethora of our Austin Family Chiropractic facebook fans, she became a GF blogger too!!!

As of today, my amazing wife has lost a grand total of 33.5 lbs in less than 4 months. She is ‘CRUSHING IT’ as my social media mentor Gary V. would say. She is truly an inspiration to many others through her facebook sharing and blogging. I’m blessed for the opportunity to share in the experience with her. We celebrated our first ever Gluten Free Thanksgiving holiday together just a few weeks ago. And it was awesome!

I love you with all of my heart, Eugena B. Austin! And I’m incredibly proud of you for now being at your lowest weight in over 12 years! 🙂 You rock, Gena!

If you haven’t already done so, please head over to Gena’s new GlutenFreeGena.com blog and / or it’s associated Gluten Free Gena Facebook page to become a fan, follow her exploits or just to say “Hello”.

Thanks in advance,

Dr. Todd Austin

Dear Dr. Todd, I tend to be an EMOTIONAL EATER. What advice can you offer me?

[The title of this post is a question that I received via email (at draustin@royell.net) from Eileen.]

Hi Eileen,

That’s a great question! I’m aware of folks who eat because they are bored, sad, upset, happy, etc. Of course WE only NEED to EAT when we are actually HUNGRY.

To shed more light on the topic of EMOTIONAL EATING, I took my traveling video blog called “THE DOCTOR TODD SHOW” on location to VIVACIOUS WELLNESS in Springfield, IL. Janet C. knows a thing or two about EMOTIONAL EATING. So let’s hear what she has to say, shall we?

Thank you for the awesome question, Eileen! And thank you for the incredible information, Janet!!!

Yours in health,

Dr. Todd, do I REALLY need to be taking FISH OILS?

Ask Dr Todd (Austin) Show & host Janet Cook

Ask Dr Todd Show – host Janet Cook interviews Todd Austin about omega 3 fish oils

I get that question daily at Austin Family Chiropractic in Virden, IL.

And I recommend high quality fish oil supplements as follows:
For maintenance and / or heart health: 2 grams daily
For neuromusculoskeletal inflammation anywhere in your body: from 6 to 9 grams daily
For brain health: 4 to 5 grams daily

I’ve taken upwards of 15 grams of high quality Omega 3 fish oils in a day before myself. I had no adverse effects to report whatsoever.
But if you are a FISHY BURP kind of guy or gal, then you must watch the below video to find out how to proceed.

Here, Holistic Health Coach Janet Cook from Vivacious Wellness in Springfield, IL ASKs DR. TODD about “The Wonders of Omega 3 Fish Oils”.

So grab your popcorn, or maybe a salmon steak instead.

Yours in health,

Hey Dr. Todd, what do you know about JUICING and HEALTHY SMOOTHIES?

[The above question was from Michelle via private facebook message.]

Hi Michelle,

As you may know, I’m a big fan of using my NutriBullet to make healthy whole food (45% veggies, 45% fruits, 10% nuts or seeds) smoothies called “Nutriblasts”.

Technically JUICING is different than what I’m accustomed to through my nearly 2 decades of using a Vitamix, then a Magic Bullet and now my NutriBullet. So to answer your question, Michelle, I decided to take the traveling DR. TODD SHOW on location to the office of my friend and Holistic Medical Doctor / Neuro-Psychiatrist Georgia Davis, M.D. In this video, Dr. Davis will give you the scoop on JUICING. Dr. Davis practices in Springfield, IL. Enjoy!

Yours in health,

Dr. Todd W. Austin, D.C.

P.S. If you’d like to be able to make a smoothie that tastes as good as (or usually even better than) a DQ Blizzard, then here is a bonus video for you. And as you can see here, children love them! And they are GLUTEN FREE. In fact, my better half GlutenFreeGena enjoys them quite often. Enjoy!!!
