Dr. Todd & Eugena Austin are having Much Success with the ChiroThin Weight Loss Program

Dr. Todd & Eugena Austin have been offering the #ChiroThin Doctor Supervised Weight Loss Program for about 10 months at Austin Family Chiropractic in Virden. Both of them have now experienced personal success on the ChiroThin program as well.

The Doctor Supervised ChiroThin Weight Loss Program was developed by one of Austin’s former classmates at Logan College of Chiropractic in Chesterfield, MO, Dr. Jason Strotheide. Both Dr. Todd & Dr. Jason are originally from Granite City, IL. Austin has been practicing at AFC in Virden since 1996. Both are 1993 Logan graduates.

Strotheide developed the program 6 years ago. Dr. Strotheide reports that over 750 U.S. chiropractic clinics now offer the program. “ChiroThin which is based around teaching its participants the way to eat to promote rapid weight loss and long term health and wellness has been responsible for over 85,000 Americans losing over 2,000,000 pounds in the last 6 years.” says Strotheide.

Initially, Dr. Austin was a huge skeptic of the ChiroThin weight loss program and vowed that there was no way he’d ever offer it in his clinic.

Then late in 2015, Dr. Todd’s wife Eugena wanted to try the ChiroThin program herself. Gena successfully lost 26 lbs in 6 weeks. After going off the program for a few weeks she went back on ChiroThin for another 6 weeks and lost 26 lbs more pounds. Since it had worked well for his wife twice and since some other chiropractors who’s opinions he valued had told him that they too were having success with it, both personally and in their clinics, Austin decided to go ahead and offer ChiroThin.

Something strange happened to Dr. Todd though between his initial skepticism about ChiroThin and eventually implementing it into his chiropractic practice in 2016. Dr. Todd had always been thin and had struggled to gain weight. But once he hit the age of 45 his metabolism changed and he now had to worry about the battle of the bulge just like millions of other Americans. In the summer of 2015 Dr. Todd set out to lose weight his own way, by following a weight loss book written by another fellow chiropractor. Austin was successful although it took a while. He lost all 15 lbs he set out to lose, but it took 13 weeks (ie, 3 months) to do so. Between the Fall of 2015 and and the Spring of 2017, after suffering a bad weight training injury which led to his inability to workout and consequently getting out of shape, Dr. Todd had gained all 15 lbs back. After “growing out of” all but 2 of the 16 pair of dress pants hanging in his closet, and with the other 2 barely able to button closed, Eugena suggested it was time the two of them do ChiroThin together.

So the first weekend in May 2017 both Dr. Todd and Eugena went on the 6 week ChiroThin program as a team. She lost 32.2 lbs in 42 days. Dr. Todd lost all 15 lbs in just 17 days. After the ChiroThin “Losing Phase” Dr. Todd went on to the ChiroThin “Maintenance Phase” where he’s now been since May 23rd. “The maintenance part of the ChiroThin program actually teaches people how to eat healthy for the rest of their lives” says Austin “as opposed to many of the fad diets out there.” Dr. Todd has been working out again since going on the Maintenance Phase, 4 days per week for 8 weeks now, has maintained his weight loss and has added 4 lbs of lean muscle mass. “I honestly didn’t believe in my wildest dreams that I could have lost 15 lbs in just 2 and 1/2 weeks!” said Dr. Todd. “This is definitely enough to get and keep me excited about ChiroThin, both as a middle aged guy and as a Chiropractic Physician.”

Our biggest losers so far at our Northern Macoupin County clinic have been Gena on the female side losing 32.2 lbs in 6 weeks and a male patient named Tony who lost an impressive 40 lbs in 6 weeks! The Austins have thoroughly enjoyed helping other central Illinoisans to reach their personal weight loss goals with the ChiroThin program since September of 2016.

Dr. Todd has been a video blogger since 2009 and has produced several recent educational videos about the ChiroThin program and how it works including interviewing other ChiroThin healthcare providers. Those videos can all be seen here:

#DrTodd’s “Way Before”, “Just Before” & “Immediately After” #ChiroThin Pics

June 18, 2017

Here’s my story. From the age of 17 through my 45th birthday I literally spent tens of thousands of dollars of my hard earned money trying to GAIN weight. And, Yes….most women wanted to slap me into next week when I explained my skinny struggles to them. They had little if any sympathy for me. I’d easily spend from $3,000 to $4,000, not to mention forcing myself to eat from 7 to 9 times per day, just to gain 10 or 12 lbs while working out over a 6 to 9 month period. It was brutal! I few times I remember forcing myself to eat so much or drink so much (in the form of protein shakes, not alcohol) that I puked!

Once upon a time, back in 1992, when I was a Logan College of Chiropractic student and a total gym rat, I did look like this though…

When I turned 45 1/2 though, everything changed. My fast metabolism slowed down considerably. I could just look at a pie or a cupcake and gain belly fat out of the ordeal. My size 28″ waist (as pictured above) become a 30″ then a 32″.

Fast forward to the Spring of 2016 when I outgrew all 14 pairs of size 32″ slacks that were hanging in my closet. I went out and bought 2 pairs of 34″ dress pants just to hold me over until I lost the weight. The only problem is that I never did. Then in April 2017 I could barely button either pair of size 34″ waist pants either. I had started eating like shit several months before. And I hadn’t exercised since I accidentally tore one of my rotator cuff muscles at the gym in the Spring of 2016 by doing 20 chin-ups per workouts. That was a painful experience! Thankfully between my Chiropractor and my Biomat it did heal up 100% though.

Now in April 2017 it was decision time. Go out and buy some 36″ waist size pants or lose 15 lbs of belly fat and get back into my whole wardrobe full of 32s. My wife Eugena had done the ChiroThin Program successfully twice back in 2016, losing 26 lbs the first time through and another 26 lbs the second time! We talked and decided to go on the #ChiroThin Doctor Supervised Weight Loss Program together starting the 1st weekend of May 2017. Admittedly, 95% of our patients who have done ChiroThin have set out to drop 20 to 40 lbs while doing so.

This was only the 3rd time in my life that I’d attempted to lose weight. It was by far the quickest, most affordable and easiest to stick too. In the meantime, this is how I looked when I was losing the Battle of the Bulge with my 34s and opted to begin ChiroThin…

Dr Todd Austin ChiroThin before pics

Yes, I know. Not a pretty sight. TY for not laughing at my “Before pics”. They are a tad bit embarrassing. As a Chiropractic Physician and a former Bodybuilder I should know better. I guess human nature took over. I’m definitely not a fan of the muffintop, especially when it belongs to me.

Actually it only took me 17 days to reach my goal weight of 150 lbs on ChiroThin! Yep. That’s a weight loss of 15 lbs in 17 days!!!
{The last time I opted to lose weight was nearly 2 years ago when I also needed to drop 15 lbs. This was before Eugena and I knew about ChiroThin. I used a different diet. I lost all 15 lbs successfully and kept it off for 6+ months… but it took my 13 weeks to lose it. I’m sure you’d agree that in this “I want it and I want it now!” society of America in 2017 that 17 days is way, way, way quicker than 13 weeks.}

After my 20th day on ChiroThin I started working out 4 times per week and have been doing so for 3 weeks as of today. Here are my 6 week “After” ChiroThin pics that I took yesterday…

DrTodd After ChiroThin pics

#DrTodd Austin After ChiroThin photos 2017

Although I still have lots of work to put in if I ever want to look like I did as a young buck in the early 1990s, ChiroThin definitely has me pointed in the right direction! The other cool thing is that now I have 16 pair of dress pants that fit me once again! Woot woot!!!

Oh, and my beautiful wife Eugena lost 32.2 lbs in her 6 weeks on ChiroThin this time around. Gena lost a total of 15 1/2 inches too! You go, girl!

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:

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!!!

OMG! I haven’t posted about Biomats here for 10 months. So here’s what YOU missed…

In October 2014 we discovered that we were teaching about a dozen other folks about the amazing Biomat technology including 1 fellow D.C. and 2 Reiki Masters. So in November we threw together our 1st ever Quarterly Central IL Biomat training event at our Virden home. It went incredibly well and there was a lot of energy there!

Back in July 2014 Eugena and I had started a closed Biomat Tips facebook group for our Biomat distributors, our Biomat customers or those with interest in possibly purchasing a Biomat from us someday. Around November 2014 lots of energy started happening there as well. As I type this there are now 70 people in this group including many key contributors. There is a plethora of quality info to be found in our closed group on:
– using Biomats in the home,
– using Biomat therapy in the clinical setting &
– sharing / selling Biomats.

Later in February, I met with fellow Biomat Therapy practitioner, fellow Cold Laser Therapist, fellow Doctor of Chiropractic and Clinical Nutrition guru Dr. Bryan Reid at Your Health Solutions in Maryville, IL to film a couple of episodes of “The Biomat Show” in the 618.

Here’s Dr. Bryan interviewing me about incorporating far infrared thermotherapy with cold lasers, nutrition and chiropractic extremity adjusting for Tough Knee Pain:

Then I interviewed Dr. Reid about his amazing results using far infrared along with nutritional support, cold laser therapy and low force chiropractic for all sorts of Peripheral Neuropathy in the St. Louis Metro East area:

Actually, due to increased scrutiny by our U.S. government, The “Solving Peripheral Neuropathy” interview I did with Dr. Reid is now no longer available in the PUBLIC DOMAIN, but only as a PRIVATE video for our PREFERRED CUSTOMERS & CLIENTS.

February also brought us the brand new and improved Purple carrying cases for both Pro Mats and Mini-Mats:

Aren’t they beautiful?!?

Also in 2/2015 The Quantum Energy Pad became a Core Biomat product:

We held our 2nd quarterly Biomat training, once again at our central IL home, in March 2015. It was awesome too! This was the first time having guest presenters. TY to Dr. Bryan Reid of Maryville and Jamie Jones from near Mattoon for both doing an excellent job in that capacity!

At the Effective & Affordable Cold Laser Clinic at Austin Family Chiropractic in Virden, we are truly doing what no one in Central IL has ever even attempted to do before as it pertains to our mission of:
“Bringing effective and affordable access to superior healing LIGHT therapy modalities to the masses, both in the clinical setting and in the comforts of one’s home”.

As we look up here in mid-June 2015, we are now training 47 Biomat distributors including a total of 21 other holistic healthcare providers. This is truly #amazing! We now have large clumps of Biomat owners not only in Virden, Springfield, Hillsboro and Nokomis here in central IL, but in the St. Louis metro area, the Quad Cities of Illinois & Iowa, the Memphis, TN area and throughout the state of New Hampshire!

Dr. Todd, It’s November (ie, Cold & Flu Season) and I feel like crud. What can I do to get over this?

Yes. As it is #COLDandFLU Season, I get the above question quite a lot lately.

One of the main things that we should be doing other than getting our spine adjusted, getting proper rest, eating clean and drinking our Kombucha is to be taking the appropriate supplements and herbs to support our immune system during this time of the year.

So I recently had the honor and privilege of getting together with a whole food nutrition and herb guru from right here in central IL. I interviewed her about 2 supplements (1 an herb, 1 a whole food complex) which support or modulate the immune system. The truth is that you’d be asking for trouble by not taking these 2 supplements this time of year where we are definitely experiencing winter weather in Illinois.

Dear Dr. Todd, My M.D. (G.P.) said I need to be taking a Statin Drug to Lower my Cholesterol. Should I?

That’s a question submitted by Kathy via e-mail. And I can definitely answer the question myself once I have a little bit more info in the way of specifics (ie, Total Cholesterol, LDL, HDL, etc.)

But since I am aware of the big push by Big Government, Big Medicine & Big Pharma to change the guidelines regarding cholesterol for the worse on 1-1-14, I decided to call on my friend and clinical nutrition mentor Dr. Bryan Reid to give us an up to date scoop on this crisis that is about to get even more out of control.

Dr Todd Show & Dr Reid on cholesterol

Dr Todd Austin & Dr Bryan Reid on statin drugs and cholesterol

Dr. Reid is a heavy hitter when it comes to helping patients solve the problems that they encounter with their blood lipid profiles. This dude is a veritable wealth of information on the topic. So let’s get Dr. Reid’s take on STATINS vs CHOLESTEROL, shall we?

So there you have it, ladies and gents. You may want to reconsider before you just blindly take the advice of a General Practitioner M.D. regarding the “standard narrative” that Big Pharma has been trying to spoon feed us for decades regarding CHOLESTEROL being the enemy and STATIN DRUGS (like Crestor & Lipitor) being knights in shining armor.

The Doctor Todd Show – Dr Bryan Reid on “Diabetes” cover screen

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,

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
