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

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,

A recent DIETING question that I received via email.

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:
