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:

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

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

Dr Todd Austin interviewing Dr Davis

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.
Austin Family Chiropractic
Virden, IL 62690

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!!!

“Why don’t you ADVERTISE Cold Laser Therapy, like SPRINGFIELD KNEE PAIN does?”

This is a question I’ve been getting a lot from both my current and new patients lately, mainly in response to a competitors new website about Springfield Knee Pain at http://SpringfieldKneePain.com .

The conversation goes like this: “”Hey Dr. Todd, there’s some other new chiropractor in Springfield who is advertising cold laser therapy like crazy all of a sudden. How come I never see or hear you advertising that? I mean since I know it’s your niche and all. I thought you might want to keep up with the competition.”

Great question, BTW. There are 2 main reasons that I don’t advertise LLLT (low level laser therapy or cold laser therapy).

The primary one is because I JUST DON’T NEED TO! I’m not a fan at all when it comes to conventional advertising. The return on investment of newspaper, radio & TV is typically pathetic. The Doctor in question is spending about $800 a pop every time he runs a half page ad in the Springfield, IL STATE JOURNAL-REGISTER newspaper. That’s freaking nuts!!! And he spends at least as much bombarding the radio airwaves as well. I run a LOW STRESS, LOW OVERHEAD practice. It would take a veritable ton of $30 treatments to pay that character’s advertising bill. Ouch!!! So no wonder if you go to his site
SpringfieldKneePain.com, you’ll see that if you’re lucky enough to respond to his offer QUICK ENOUGH then you’ll get his $425 cold laser evaluation for only $60.

Geez, and here little old me charges only $35 cash pay price for what is probably a much more thorough evaluation. And to borrow a phrase from Walmart, “That’s our everyday low price” at Austin Family Chiropractic.

This fella in Springfield just bought his first pain relief cold laser in July 2013 after he came back into practice. Personally, I own 8 cold laser devices, and I’ve been using them for 8+ years, so I guarantee I could run rings around this cold laser therapy pain relief newbie with my army of laser devices. Trust me when I say this guy jumps from gimmick to gimmick. Just 6 months ago, he was the “LipoLaser Weight Loss Guy”, until his advertising practices landed him in hot water. BTW, he just came back into practice after losing his license back in 3/2013 for breaking advertising laws for which he had to pay a $5,000 fine. He’s now on indefinite probation until at least 6-30-2014 in case you were wondering. YIKES!!! And he’s not new. He’s got 16 black marks on his license, 9 of which occurred in the past 2 1/2 years, with others dating back to 1992. I don’t normally bash my fellow brothers and sisters in chiropractic, but this situation has BAD NEWS written all over it. Don’t believe me? Then please go to IL License Lookup and enter the following:

Profession: CHIROPRACTOR
Last name: PRICE
First Initial: K
Then click on the word SEARCH.

Then YOU BE THE JUDGE.

But I digress. I don’t need to ADVERTISE because I get a fairly steady stream of referrals for COLD LASER THERAPY from patients, Medical Doctors and other Chiropractors as well. I also get plenty of new Cold Laser Therapy patients from my gig as Official Team D.C. and Official Team Cold Laser Therapist of the 2012 MidStates Football League Eastern Conference Champion Springfield Foxes and my online presence as “central IL’s ‘Go To Guy’ for LLLT treatment and advice” as the creator & host of ColdLaser.TV, my online cold laser informational video blog. I’ve been educating the public via my ToddAustinDC YouTube Channel since 2009.

MY PERSONAL MISSION STATEMENT is to either get every American citizen to an affordable and competent Cold Laser Therapy practitioner or to have them purchase their own LLLT device(s) to add to their 21st Century Medicine Cabinet for ‘at home’ use. See below video:

And secondly, I don’t advertise because advertising Cold Laser Therapy is just asking for trouble. This Springfield Doc is advertising his cold lasers specifically for “knee pain” and “peripheral neuropathy”. While it’s true that cold lasers can many times help those conditions (it happens daily in my office), in the U.S. we can only legally advertise a cold laser device for what it is FDA cleared (approved) for. For example, if a certain cold laser device is only FDA cleared for treating carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS), it can only be advertised in the newspaper / on the TV / on the radio for treating, you guessed it, CARPAL TUNNEL SYNDROME. So it might well be said that this guy is foolishly putting himself out there as a sitting duck. In other words, he’s just asking to get his license yanked again.

Any bets how long it’ll be before Black Mark #17 goes on his record? SMH

So I hope I succeeded in answering your question about “Why I don’t ADVERTISE Cold Laser Therapy”. But here are a couple of my KNEE PAIN testimonial videos from my satisfied patients:

For the record the “Dr. Todd Austin Knee Pain Protocol” involves a combination of: chiropractic lower extremity work, cold laser therapy and nutritional supplements for improving weight-bearing joint health.
