About the Authors
Dr. Todd Frisch
What an interesting evolution over the past four plus decades for Dr. Todd. As a young doctor, it started as a desire to help his patients heal and became a quest to find the missing puzzle piece for many who were roaming from one healthcare professional to another, only to wind up more frustrated than when they started.
Early on in Dr. Todd’s career, he was introduced to facial diagnosis while studying acupuncture and it became his passion!
Facial analysis dates back 3000 years and the first recorded book was written in 481 B.C. The most famous, The Yellow Emperor’s Guide to Internal Medicine was published in 260 B.C. Since then, there have been many books written (Dr. Todd owns 82 personally) about facial analysis. The majority focus on personality traits and while this is valuable information, he was more interested in finding clues to physiological health. He spent the next four decades documenting every face shape and size, as well as, placement of each feature. He made note of every marking, line, wrinkle, blemish, discoloration or puffiness. He began to find correlative patterns that lined up with symptoms his patients were suffering from. (Example: dark discoloration at the inner canthus – area between bridge of nose and corner of eye – correlated with blood sugar instability).
What started as, “do you have?” when interviewing a patient evolved into him stating “you have”. Patient after patient would respond, how do you know that about me? He documented and documented, then documented some more until his entire life’s work became that of fine-tuning facial analysis and using it as an integral part of his assessment.
Sharing his decades of research started with many healthcare professionals encouraging him to write a text book. Dr. Todd’s daughter, Abbie, helped extract years of clinical experience and knowledge from Dr. Todd, while contributing her own exceptional knowledge, to publish WTF: Why the Face? in 2019.
Readers began contacting him wanting to dig even deeper and encouraged him to create a full course and curriculum that was launched in early 2023. Along with the Master Class came Why the Face App. This app allows patients/clients/customers/students/employees/team members, etc. to upload their photos and a full facial assessment is completed by the facial analysis clinician. They, in turn, provide a full color pdf report detailing face shape, 22 additional facial features, as well as information pertaining to their personality and health.
As a seasoned chiropractor, Dr. Todd specialized in nutrition, homeopathy, kinesiology, acupuncture, iridology, traditional Chinese medicine and facial diagnosis. After decades in private practice, Dr. Todd now devotes his time to teaching and mentoring healthcare and business professionals, as well as anyone interested in learning facial analysis. He teaches how facial analysis can be a powerful tool for businesses, sports teams, film and television casting, mental health professionals, schools and more.
