Therapeutic Lifestyle Program

FirstLine Therapy is a TLC program that can help you improve your health, achieve your health goals, and reduce your health risks. With FirstLine Therapy, you’ll learn simple things you can do every day to take control of your health-such as diet, exercise, stress management, and appropriate nutritional supplementation. Therapeutic Lifestyle Changes (TLC) are the first, and possibly the most important therapy doctors can prescribe to treat many chronic health problems.

Lifestyle choices are also the key to addressing other health concerns and symptoms, such as:

  • Fatigue
  • Hormone imbalance
  • Low sex drive
  • Stress-related symptoms
  • Poor memory or lack of mental clarity
  • And many others

Illness is not a normal part of aging. Did you know:

  • Chronic diseases account for 78% of annual healthcare costs.
  • Chronic diseases also account for one-third of the years of potential life lost before age 65.
  • Most chronic diseases are caused by unhealthy lifestyle habits. For example, 91% of type 2 diabetes is caused by unhealthy habits and forms of behavior.
  • Chronic disabling conditions cause major limitations in activity for more than one of every 10 Americans.
  • The prolonged course of illness and disability from chronic diseases results in extended pain and suffering and decreased quality of life.

You can change your health!

Doesn’t everybody want good health? High energy, mental clarity, full function, and absence of disease well into old age. It’s yours for the taking! What do you want?

  • More strength
  • More sex drive
  • More energy
  • Clearer thinking
  • More “good” days
  • Less Stress

Reversing and delaying chronic illness

Extensive scientific research demonstrates that many of the chronic diseases associated with aging can be prevented or even treated by adopting a healthy lifestyle.

  • Heart disease
  • High blood pressure
  • Stroke
  • Osteoarthritis

  • Enabling yourself to achieve a full healthy life!

FirstLine Therapy can help you regain health

FirstLine Therapy (FLT) is a specialized therapeutic lifestyle change program unlike any other in that the FLT system targets the underlying causes of chronic illnesses by incorporating a sensible eating plan, exercise, nutritional supplementation and stress management. In fact, the following key characteristics are unique to the FLT program.

FLT is not just a weight loss program

Most programs are focused on weight while FLT is best used as a first line treatment for common, chronic health problems (e.g., high cholesterol, insulin resistance, unhealthy body composition).
The FLT eating plan is different

Most programs are focused on lowfat diets while FLT emphasized the importance of a low-glycemic eating plan that is consistent with current research.

FLT incorporates medical foods and nutritional supplements

The appropriate use of medical foods and sullenness enhances program effectiveness and shortens the time it takes for you to achieve risk reduction goals.

Getting Started – A Matter of Fat

In order to measure your progress, you first need to know your current health status. A variety of health assessments may be performed, including a quick, non-invasive measurement of your body fat and lean muscle mass.

Excess body fat can greatly increase your health risks. But a higher ratio of muscle increases your metabolism and is associated with lower incidence of illness, improving our muscle-to-fat ratio is perhaps the most powerful tool in controlling the aging process and restoring vitality. And that’s what FirstLine Therapy is a all about.

Your personal FirstLine Therapy program offers:

  • Initial and follow-up testing
  • Practitioner consultations
  • Solutions for staying active
  • Simple eating guidelines
  • Progress tracking
  • Lifestyle counseling
  • Nutritional product recommendations
