DR. TODD FRISCH
Dr. Todd Frisch is a teacher, speaker and author WTF? Why the Face: A Practical Guide to Understanding Health & Personality Through Facial Diagnosis. He is also the founder and technical advisor of the nationally-acclaimed health transformation program SHAPE ReClaimed.
After graduating from Palmer College of Chiropractic in 1981, Dr. Todd has never stopped seeking education. He spent endless hours studying the manifestation of illness and took every opportunity to learn something that might help a patient. No book was too technical (or too expensive), no seminar was too far away, no class was too peculiar.
“All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.”
– Arthur Schopenhauer, German philosopher
Dr. Todd’s unquenchable thirst for knowledge led him to receive 2500 hours of post-graduate training in traditional Chinese medicine, 750 hours in nutrition and 80 hours in iridology. He served as president of the American Board of Chiropractic Acupuncture and the Council of Chiropractic Acupuncture and currently teaches for the Missouri state license renewal program and at annual SHAPE ReClaimed symposiums.
Dr. Todd has always practiced out-of-the-box techniques in diagnosis and treatment, all with a simple yet determined focus of helping sick people get well. His specialties include restorative medicine, nutrition, homeopathy, kinesiology, acupuncture, iridology, traditional Chinese medicine and facial diagnosis.
In his private practice, each challenge or difficult patient case ignited a desire to be like his childhood hero, Sherlock Holmes, and see what no one else saw. He obsessed over finding that missing puzzle piece and getting to the underlying cause of what’s not right in each patient. While he may have been seen as a quack by his medical contemporaries, Dr. Todd saw amazing successes and even miracles using an individualized and restorative approach to medicine. Today, these methods are becoming more widely accepted because patients demand and deserve better care.
Jeremy Gilien was a founding faculty member of the Los Angeles County High School for the Arts, and served as musical director of the music theater program until 2006, when he became director of music for the department of dance. He is the composer of three operas: The Magician, The Happy Prince, and Calcutta Rose (about Mother Teresa).
His Symphonice Suite from The Happy Prince was the winner of the 1997 Valley Symphony Composition Competition and received its premier under the baton of maestro Robert Chauls. His latest work for the stage is an operatic/political/circus farce entitled Civicus Dutius, which was premiered by the Cal State L.A.department of Theatre Arts and Dance.
He has been nominated for a Lester Horton Award for outstanding achievement in music for dance for his work with the choreographer Rudy Perez. Mr. Gilien has been director of music at Lynwood United Methodist Church, and currently serves as director of music of Downey United Methodist Church. He also serves on the music staff of University SDA church. He is currently staff accompanist at the Trudl Zipper Dance Institute of the Colburn School, the Colburn Dance Academy, and has played summer intensive training programs for American Ballet Theatre (ABT), Joffrey Ballet, and Cecchetti U.S.A..

Come and join the conversation about what's going on and what we can do together about it, with it, and for it. We have the choice, we have the power. We can do magic if we just believe!
A show about the changes going on in us, to us, around us, and because of us. Therefore, it's technically a show about "Everything," only with a how to make it better, see it better, be better.
In the show, there is talk about, and with, people who have either been through major changes, are helping others with major changes, or people who are changing the world for the better in a major way.
The show is a one-hour talk show format with a monologue by the host, a 30 minute interview with a guest of note, capped by a "Producer's Wrap" segment, in which Filippo and Co-Host Mark Laisure, and sometimes surprise guests, bring it all home for the listeners in a sometimes humorous and sometimes touching, but always entertaining conversation.
