#DrTodd, what’s the difference between BIOMAT THERAPY & COLD LASER THERAPY (LLLT)?

As a veteran Cold Laser Therapy practitioner (for a full decade now), as a Cold Laser Consultant, as a Biomat Consultant & as a Biomat Diamond Executive Distributor I get the above question quite often from other holistic healthcare providers, especially my fellow Doctors of Chiropractic.

Sometimes it shows up like:
“I’m thinking of getting into healing LIGHT therapy. Which would be best for me and my practice, Dr. Todd …. Cold Lasers or Far Infrared?”
OR
“Which is better, #DrTodd, Far Infrared or Cold Lasers?”
OR
“Hey Dr. Todd, my new equipment budget only allows for me to spend $X,000 this year. Would you recommend I get into LLLT or FIR Thermotherapy first?”

You probably get the picture.

The God’s honest truth is that I LOVE both of these amazing state-of-the-art healing #LIGHT therapy modalities. And there is no way that I could imagine my life or my practice without either of them in it!

So my friend Cindy A. Brown of Florida recently was kind enough to interview me about this topic: #BIOMATvsLLLT. It was an honor to have Cindy, a blogger at EverydayUnderwear.com, freelance writer, Toastmasters International member and just all around awesome person as a guest host on “The Biomat Show”. Since there was a lot of info to cover, the interview went 19 minutes. So it’s been broken into 3 parts for you, my viewers.

Here is Part 1 of “A Comparison of LLLT and Far Infrared Thermal Therapy” which is a PUBLIC Episode of #TBS:

Here is the PUBLIC TRAILER for Part 2 which is actually an UNLISTED Episode. Actually, due to increased scrutiny by the government, the Part 2 interview I did with Cindy Brown is now no longer available in the PUBLIC DOMAIN, but only as a PRIVATE video for our PREFERRED CUSTOMERS & CLIENTS.


And lastly, here is Part 3 where we discuss Flintstone Therapies vs. Jetson Therapies, the additional benefits of Far Infrared over LLLT and much more.

Sorry, folks. Same deal here as with Part 2. Due to increased scrutiny by our federal government, the Part 3 of 3 interview with Cindy Brown is also no longer available in the PUBLIC DOMAIN, but only as a PRIVATE video for our PREFERRED CUSTOMERS & CLIENTS.

Until next time, #HappyColdLasering & #HappyFarInfraredding if you are lucky enough to have access to either of both of these space age technologies.

Of course as always, please feel free to contact me with any questions.

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.

Then in February we held our first major chiropractic seminar Biomat Therapy booth event at the 2015 annual Professional Football Chiropractic Society conference in Indy.

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!

We’ve been staying busy with both the cold lasers and the biomats at the clinic. We’ve been filming a lot of short healing LIGHT therapy & Cold Laser Therapy testimonial videos lately too.

Healing LIGHT therapy for Acute Knee Pain from a Football Injury:

Healing LIGHT Therapy for Chronic Severe Buttock Pain (referred to us by another area Doctor of Chiropractic):

Healing LIGHT Therapy for Chronic Post-Radiation Peripheral Neuropathy:

Far Infrared Thermotherapy solves Chronic Low Back Pain which was unable to helped by the Orthopedic Surgeon, Physical Therapy or Chiropractic care:

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!
